Prepare the natural nails for acrylic or hard gel.
Apply forms and sculpt acrylic or gel nails.
Use a magic want to pinch the nails so they have a nice narrow shape.
File the nails, and leave rough (180 grit sponge buffer). Finish with a protein bond.
Apply a thin stroke of gel polish. I used this beautiful silver from Orly. Cure.
Use various colors to create a cut out effect. Cure. Topcoat. Cure. Buff with a 180 grit sponge buffer.
Use a very thin striper brush and detail brush with black acrylic paint to outline the shapes, and make some new ones.
Use a white acrylic paint to outline the silver lines. Topcoat with gel topcoat, and cure a final time.
Apply swarovski crystals using Bondini glue.
The finished result!
