I have been working on nail art over gel manicures. This one is done with a very small brush and a variety of Gelish colors.  The black outline is acrylic paint.  Then the whole design is topped off with Gelish Top It Off.

Beautiful! Are the gelish ones you have to use a heat lamp to cure?

Yup.  It's a gel polish that is cured under a UV light or an LED light.  Love that stuff.  I have the attention span of a squirrel, so it's really nice that when my mani is done, my polish is dry and I can move on to my next adventure.  *L*

Wow. Reminds me of Easter egg art! Very interesting. Hey, for Christmas, change them up and go with holiday colors for a similar look? Very nicely done. And those look like your natural nails, too? I hate those acrylic ones. They dry out your nail beds and mess up the original bottom layers. I have never had them, but have had friends who got major fungus issues with those. Very pretty, and nicely done!
