 2. DIY your nail art 

Apply the base coat and the nail gel polish color.

Two tips for designing flowers:

A: Use solid nail glue gel.

  • Take 5 drops of medium-sized solid nail glue, rolled into a ball shape.
  • Place them on the nail surface, using a dotting brush to press the center of the flower to form water-droplet-shaped petals, and cure it under your nail lamp.

  • Use a liner brush to take the chrome nail powder top coat, draw on the petals' edge. Cure it under your nail lamp 20s - 30s, and put on the chrome mirror powder.
  • Apply another layer of base coat and cure it under the nail lamp.

B: Use chrome nail powder top coat

  • Use a liner brush to draw the petals you want, then put on a layer of matte top coat.
  • Use a dotting brush to take the chrome nail powder top coat and draw in the center of the flower, and the leaves. Cure it under your nail lamp 20s - 30s, and put on the chrome mirror powder.
