The cave men used to put their hands on the rock and blow pigmented dust around the hand. Draw a hand on a nail form with a permanent marker, cover it with a piece of tape and cut it to make a hand template. Tape it on the nail and blow and pat pigment around it. Paint the animals and layer gel paint to create the cliff (as seen in the picture of the finished work).
The base of the jade stone is made by tapping gold gel paint on the nail with cellophane. Cure the paint and add top coat.
Fill a bowl with warm water and put drops of black nail polish in it. Then spray the polish with some hair spray. Hair spray breakes the surface and all you have to do is to dip your nail in the polish. Let the polish dry and seal it with top coat.
The Egyptian statue is made with multiple layers of gel paint. Add shadows and painted details. Add matte top coat to get the sandstone effect.
Gel paint acts like oil paints in so many ways, it is thick and easily blended. This Claude Monet painting is made by using multiple layers of gel paints. As base I used lavender after which I continued with blue tones. I worked my way to greens and then to lighter colors.
Vincent van Gogh was also an oil painter. First I painted the blue and yellow base. Then I made the light yellow base for the flowers.
To get some authentic look to your nail add a crisscross of gel paint on the background.
Paint the details with strong pigmented colors.
I started my Magritte painting like the other paintings, with strong background colors. Use a sponge to make the clouds in the sky. Dip the sponge in dark paint and pat it on the nail.
Pay attention to the details, especially to the shadows.
