I started off with a base of Nubars Gelicure Blue Hydrangea. I then used the new orly instant nail artist acrylic nail paints and a dotter to add splotches to the nail.Then again using the dotting tool I drew unconnected semi circles around the dots, plus a few commas and dashes.
On the thumb and ring finger I applied geliure in 3 colours and used a pin to drag the colours to create a colour fade. I have this handy diagram which hopefully explains how I achieved this :
|3 colour gel polish fade|

I finished it off with some tiger strips with Orly's instant artist nail art paints. I am really beginning to love these water base acrylic paints.
