Nails Magazine Next Top Nail Artist top 10: See You on the Backside (Sponsored by Minx)

I wanted to stay true to myself and create a set with multiple characters, something that I love to do. This set was incredibly fun to create. I paired every good guy with a villain, heroes on the top and villains under the nails. I really wanted to challenge myself and decided to free hand paint the characters under the nails.

Free hand painting characters isn't easy and it's something that you learn to do with time. I made two step-by-step tutorials of the characters, Simba from the Lion King (my absolute favorite film as a child) and Maleficent from the Sleeping beauty.

First I painted the nails green on the back side. I always use holographic glitter underneath the crystal "treasure nails". That way the crystal nails look more solid.

First step is to paint the large areas, face and the headpiece. I used gel paints to create the characters. Then cure in the UV-light. Then paint the second largest areas, eye shadow, collar of the cloak and the red lipstick. Cure before next areas. Paint the shadows, gray areas on the head piece, yellows of the eyes and the white teeth. Cure. Then add black lines.

The Lion King has very bright colors, so I painted Simba's background ocher yellow. First I painted the large areas with pastel yellow, then added shadows, Simba's white chin, brown ears and pink nose. Last step was to add the black lines.
