Navy Blue Gel
Liner Nail Art Brush
Square Nail Art Brush Step 1. Apply the base coat and cure the nail.
Step 2. Paint the nail with navy blue color once. Cure one, paint the navy blue one more time and cure again.
Step 3. Put some green color on the long liner brush and draw a few vertical lines on the nail. Try to draw thin lines but you can draw long and short lines.
Step 4. Do the same thing with the pink color and cure.
Step 5. Do the same thing with the yellow and the white color. White makes the design look tighter, so I always use white. Cure.
Step 6. Now, let’s draw a few horizontal lines with the green color.
Step 7. Do the same thing with the pink color. Drawing horizontal lines is harder than drawing vertical ones, so you don’t have to draw from one end to the other at once. You can draw 2 half lines next to each other.
Step 8. Do the same thing with the yellow color. Try not to put too much pressure on the brush and draw thin lines.Cure.
Step 9. Draw a few horizontal lines with the white color.
Step 10. Draw a few horizontal lines with the navy blue we used for the base color. You can fix thick lines or lines with too many colors with the blue lines. Cure.
Step 11. Apply the top coat on the nail. Paint all the way to the tip of the nail evenly. Cure and you’re done.
