I couldn’t wait to try out some nail art ideas after I received 4 new to me colors from Akzentz in the mail the other day! So here is what I finished with. I love working with these products. If you missed the post with the colors by themselves, here it is http://seriouslynails.com/?p=5464

Here is my finished work.

And, here is a little step by step for the thumb nail art that is pictured above.

Step 1: Apply white gel in a chevron at the cuticle area of the nail. Cure.

Step 2: Apply very lightly to the rest of the nail Akzentz Options Colour in “Moody Sunset Chameleon” and cure.

Step 3: Cleanse the whole nail with your favorite cleanser. Using a fine stripping brush and Options Colours in “French Blue” draw fine lines to separate the two colors, then cure.

Don’t ask how I know that can happen!!! LOL

Once you are done with your scrolling, apply top coat gel and cure. If you need to, you can apply a second coat so that your finished nail is smooth!
