Copy and paste the embed code above to put this step-by-step nail art tutorial on your web site.
I start by placing a large emerald Swarovski crystal into a round bead of silver acrylic. Then I carve out a groove using my electric file. Next I use gel to adhere some tiny silver beads. Lastly, I carve out a little space on the side and use gel to add a seed bead to use as a hinge.
I place the jewelry wire through the bead, and clip the length. Next I begin sculpting the ring. I use a rounded surface to mimic the nail. I use my electric file to clean it up, and then I make sure it fits properly. I used a swiss bubble bit on my electric file to carve out grooves for the hinge.
I encapsulated the ends of the jewelry wire to secure my hinge. Next I used a dark purple gel inside the locket. Lastly, I used crystals to embellish the locket.
I prepared the nails for sculpting.
I used clear acrylic to sculpt long, thin almond shaped nails.
I removed the forms.
Next, I spread some emerald glitter over the nail bed and smile lines, and also attached some fishnet using nail glue.
I encapsulate the nails with clear acrylic.
Finish file the nails.
Lastly, I add my holographic fabric from Empower Nail Art, 3-D black acrylic, crystals, and the locket ring.
