One of the first few nail designs I did when I first moved to San Francisco was this “drop” design I learned at a CalGel training seminar.
First a color (generally a dark color) of gel is used. Then, a very thin/ translucent white layer of gel over the cured color layer is applied. Without curing that white layer, a drop of clear gel is gently placed at random. This creates a scale-y / mermaid-y design.
Since it was spring when I moved up here, I used lighter colors as the base. I recreated the design for a friend a few weeks later, using bright colors & gold.
Sculpted gel overlay using Trump Gel & CalGel.
This is a really fun design that allows you to get really creative and just have fun creating something unique. Play with different color combos and drop placements!
Thanks for visiting, and remember to keep your claws modish!
