Gel Polish Nail Art

Nailuv Nail Art

Press Sample Today I've got one of my first attempts at nail art using gel polish and a quick tutorial if you want to try it out yourself!

Before I get started with the tutorial, I must stress the importance of curing every single layer. Does it take a little more effort? Yes. Will your nails come out fabulous if you don't? Not a chance.

The first step is three cured coats of nailuv What's Up.

The next step is to lay down some striping tape.
I planned on doing this pattern on all my nails, but then I changed my mind. Can you tell?

After the striping is down, paint semi circles on the right and left sides of your nail bed using nailuv Dynamic Duo and Lovestruck, remove the tape, and cure.

Finish off with a layer of gel top coat and wipe with gel polish cleanser and you're done!

Don't know what I mean when I say "cure"? Curious about the nailuv At Home Gel Polish System? See my review of the starter kit here.

nailuv Gel Nail Polish ranges from $8 to $14.95 on

Here's to stepping out of my nail art comfort zone and using a medium I'm not all that familiar with!
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
