Step by step guide: how to do 3D flowers nail art

Step 1: preparation of fingernail.

  • You need to prepare the fingernail and cover it with EMiLac 182 Sea foam.
  • Dry the gel layer 1 minute in LED lamp or 2 minutes in UV.
  • Apply EMiLac TOP GEL and put in the lamp (LED one for 1 min., UV lamp needs 2 minutes).

Step 2: nail pattern application.

  • Cut out a flower element of pattern Nailcrust. Put it into water for a few seconds. After that you need to remove the paper substrate.
  • Apply the pattern on the fingernail, glue and smooth it.
  • For better adhesion we recommend to dry a little bit in a lamp: 15-30 seconds in any type of lamps is enough.
  • As it always happens you have extra parts of the pattern that go beyond the nail. Don’t worry about it. All of it very easy to remove with ULTRABOND. Just apply ULTRABOND around the perimeter and remove the pattern remains with a wooden stick from the cuticle and the free edge zone.
  • Apply EMiLac TOP GEL. Don’t forget to use a lamp – LED for 1 minute or UV for 2 min.

Step 3: 3D nail sticker application.

  • To make a lunula design, we glue Charmicon Lunula No. 7.
  • Cover the nail with this TOP Gel Tackless.
  • Drying in LED / CCFL for 2 min., UV – 2 min.

Step 4: Paint with EMPASTA.

  • We paint the middle part of flowers and small petals with the material – EMPASTA “Ice lemon”. You can choose another color of the EMPASTA. 
  • Put the fingernails in a lamp: LED / CCFL – 2 min., UV – 2 min.

Step 5: Paint the rest of the petals with white color.

  • To paint the rest parts of flowers with white colors use EMPASTA White refined. It is not required to dry now, because we will need the sticky layer on the next step.

Step 6. Making of velvet effect on the flower design

  • Pour “Velvet Sand” onto the Empaste layer.
  • Dry the design: LED for 2 minutes, UV for 2 minutes.
  • Now you just need to remove the sand excess with a brush.
