Day 2 is stained glass/accent nail. I went ahead and chose to use both looks cause the stained glass look would take foreeever to do on all ten nails. So.
I've also tried to do another tutorial, hopefully you're all enjoying these, and I'm not just doing them for no reason. And again, since it's going to be image heavy, it's all under the link below
|First off, the finished look|
- China Glaze refresh mint is the base color
- apple barrel acrylic paint set in primary colors
- apple barrel candy pink acrylic paint
- nail art brushes
- la colors rapid dry top coat
- sally hansen invisible which is just a clear polish, this is optional and any clear polish will do if you use that step.

First, we're gonna start off with two coats of our base color, along with cleaning up any mistakes you might have made. I prefer to clean up inbetween coats, it's easier for me, but feel free to go about that however you like.
After you're base color is dry, take a black acrylic paint (or a black polish, I prefer the paints lately myself, but whatever you have/like to use. either will work) and just make random lines and shapes. This doesn't have to be perfect as we're going to go back over it later.
Once you have all your spaces filled in with colors, take your black paint or polish again and go over the black lines again, cover up any color that got out of line, and make the black lines darker and bolder to make the colors stand out. Once that's done, add a top coat, and you're done!
