Welcome to the final challenge of NTNA 2015-2016!
This is a tutorial for the first set of nails we were asked to do, the theme was -

What is beauty to you?

For me in nail art and life nothing is more beautiful than colour and detail.
I find beauty in the fine details of henna designs. Henna encompasses the beauty of nature and culture.
I painted the base nails in a vertical ombrè rainbow, adding finely detailed henna designs (all using gel polish).
To add more pop of colour I used syrup gel to accent some of the design.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
