Decadent Valentine’s accent nail


Seasonal & Occasions, Step by Step

Monika Kupien reveals how to create this decadent ring finger design, perfect for Valentine’s Day, using Gelish products.

Step 1
Prepare and shape nails as usual. Paint two coats of Gelish's A Kiss from Marilyn shade onto the nails, curing in between, and complete with Gelish Top It Off and cure. On the ring finger, paint two coats of Gelish in Hollywood’s Sweetheart, curing in between, followed by a Matte Top Coat.
Step 2
Paint a heart on the ring finger nail using Gelish Art Form Gel in Red from the Essentials Collection. Cure for 30 seconds in the 18G LED lamp.
Step 3
Use Gelish Art Form Gel in White from the Essentials Collection and a thin brush to draw very fine swirls around the heart. Cure for 30 seconds in the 18G LED Lamp.
Step 4
Add sparkle if desired by applying All That Jazz Swarovski crystals around the heart using nail glue or sealing with Top Coat then curing.
