Form your tips, I used my black monomer and clear acrylic for the thumb to the middle finger. and used regular monomer for the glitter tips, form these tips fading half way up the nail bed.

For the geometric acrylic art, using regular monomer and clear acrylic, form a triangle off the tip. With your brush form a straight line or using a dental floss pick, while the acrylic is still setting, press the floss into the acrylic and scrape acrylic away to form edge. Place your next ball of acrylic in your next color, and repeat. Place your last ball near your cuticle. It is ok if some of the acrylic overlaps, if your have created a nice edge on the ledge of your shape it will file off nicely!

On your next glitter tip, form a 3D bow diagonal across the nail, then using a small ball white acrylic, place the ball from the tip, up to the edge of the bow, like pictured, do the same for the ear.. Then with black acrylic paint and a dotting tool, dot the eyes and drag on whiskers, using yellow acrylic paint, dot on the nose. Cap entire nail with clear acrylic using regular monomer.

For the scale nail, using your black monomer, form the entire nail with clear acrylic, while the acrylic is still setting, use a piece of mesh material dipped in acrylic powder and press firmly into the nail. Remove the mesh slowly as it finishes setting. Then using your colored acrylic, press the balls well down into the mesh indentation all over the nail. If you have pressed your colors down well enough into the nail, when you file, you will see dimension nicely.

For this nail, using your black monomer, form the entire nail with clear acrylic. [After finish filing] Using a striping brush and black polish (I used gel polish, cured) paint 3 vertical stripes parallel 3/4 down the nail. For the flowers, I used a one-stroke paint method and acrylic paint, for the design between the top of the lines and the cuticle. Let dry.

On another glitter tip, cut lace to fit the entire nail, glue/resin material on the nail leaving a small enough gap near the cuticle to cap with clear acrylic with regular monomer over the entire nail. Excess from the lace will file off.

After all your sculpted nails are completed (For the thumbs I did a marbled acrylic tip with the blue and the green. And the black monomer with clear acrylic for the nail bed). File, Shape, and Buff your set, and proceed with the nail art.
