For this challenge, we were asked to create a 3D Punk Rock inspired nail. We were allowed to use any materials that we wanted. I am a lover of all things punk and rock, and had a lot of fun with this design!

Step-by-Step Nail Art Tutorial

1
Every punk rocker needs a red flannel shirt, so this will be the base of the nail. Using CND Shellac, apply 2 coats of Wildfire, curing in a UV lamp between each.
