Nail art step by step
Raised leaf nail art
Botanical nail art (raised leaves)
Follow the instructions below, or click the image to download the guide.
Draw a guideline of the leaf design onto the nail using the gel mixture and a thin nail art brush. Do not cure.
Use the same mixture to layer until you achieve the desired raised “height”. Cure using a dual curing lamp.
Apply a layer of Calgel matte top gel. Cure and wipe to reveal the matte effect.
For a more interesting effect, you can also apply a layer of glossy top gel on only the leaf or design detail to enhance it even more.
I recommend Calgel non-wipe top gel.
