Step 1:
After nail preparation and base gel application using Calgel natural gel apply 2 layers of beige gel colour. I used Calgel + M07BE.

Step 2:

Mix blue colour gel with Calgel cream art mixing gel. I used blue from Calgel + M08BL.

Step 3:

Draw a guideline of the leaf design onto the nail using the gel mixture and a thin nail art brush. Do not cure.

Step 4:

Use the same mixture to layer until you achieve the desired raised “height”. Cure using a dual curing lamp.

Step 5:

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.
