  3. 3
    And this is kind of a see color blue nail polish
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    As well and a glossy red color,
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Of course I have a set of these that I used to to do the cadver design with you can watch it in one of my previous videos
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    So let's start
    .
    First, I will need to do the base. I'm going to go with two layers as I usually. Do it's harder to do it on the right hand because I'm left handed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    I mean I'm right handed see using the left hand is kind of difficult that is why I am using a very clear, very light color, a very natural color
    .
    it is easy to apply. I just removed my nail polish and you can see, I left it on my left hand with this springy or Japanese kind of art style that I use with help of the nail stickers.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    So you might want to see the way I did it
    .
    Also, another one of my videos in case if you don't have any nail polish remover. There is also another video that you can watch where I show how to remove your nail polish without any solution, with just some help from a nail file. It might be very helpful. Okay, so the first layer is done, it needs to dry off just a little bit.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Let's go for a second layer
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    What I like about design nails at home, is it sort of gives you a freedom of art, you can be an artist and you can do things the way you want them to be
    .
    This is a very natural color and it will go well for a bride design. I screwed it up, but while it is still fresh I can fix it OK.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    So I'm finished with the base and the next thing I'm going to do is check and see if it's dry enough
    .
    It's still sticky we need to wait just a couple more minutes.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    You can blow on your fingers so that the process is faster
    .
    Okay, so what I'm going to do next is start with a bigger fingernail will come back to the small one. I just wanted to be visible.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    I'm going to open all 3 of my fingernail polish and this is what I'm doing, I'm going to make drops 1, 2 & 3 one color
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    And 1, 2 & 3 of a different color
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    And I will put a drop of red in the center like this
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now I'm using an old gel ink pen that is not working anymore,
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    I'm going to dip the end of it and drag it here and then dipped in drag
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Keep the napkin next to you so that you can wipe the nail polish off the pen,
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    And from there, I'll just do this so we have sort of a tree color leave before it has dried
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Let's open the beads
    .
    I think the yellow or maybe the pink
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Yes, lets put yellow golden in the middle
    .
    I just need a tiny bit.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    I'm going to use the wooden applicator, what the end of it so that the beads will get attached
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    And I'm going to transfer the bead into the center of my flower
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    I use these all ready to do a cavier design
    .
    It's called the cavier design when you apply these all over the square of your fingernail. So you can also use them separately. This looks quite nice I don't know if you can see it or not, but it looks clear it reflects the light and you can see this golden.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    So let's go for the next one we're going to do 5 leave
    .
    And we can actually add some beads let's get some green in there.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Okay, so the next one, 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Just like this and a red one in the center
    .
    That might have been way too much, but that's okay because we are creating.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    So again from the center down to the end
    .
    Wipe it off and again
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    And like this now you see I have applied too much red to make it look more like a flower, we need to wipe this off
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    From the side I'm going to go to the center, okay
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    So now I'm going to get my applicator back and I'm going to apply some of the yellow into the center of my flower
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    And I think I can go with this semi clear green one
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    To apply a tiny bit on the flower leaves
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    No just push them a tiny bit with your finger, so they get attached better
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    This looks quite nice
    .
    It looks like a 3D flower on your fingernails.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Because I used several colors is it it is also very interesting to watch it very closely
    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37

    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    No if you can see the red and the blue next will give me a purple color
    .
    I will start with purple in the middle, blue and then green.
