Nail Art Tutorial: Popsicle Nails

Watch and see how Amy Tran (@amyytran) creates this rainbow gradient popsicle nail!

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

+ Liquid Palisade by Kiesque
+ Azature Faint White Diamond

+Blue: China Glaze As Vase Value
+Yellow: China Glaze Lemon Fizz
+ Coral China Glaze Petal To The Metal
+ Makeup sponge
+ Glisten & Gloss HK Girl Top Coat

 

Steps:

  1. Start with a base coat and let it dry. You usually want a white base so your colors pop more.
  2. Paint on Liquid Palisade (purple stuff) from Kiesque. (It dries faster than glue and comes off easier! )
  3. Apply colors onto a latex-free makeup sponge (I use a dry makeup sponge from Sally Beauty Supply.)
  4. Dab sponge onto the nail. Use a side to side and up and down motion to blend your colors.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reached your desired opacity.
  6. Remove your Liquid Palisade by pulling it up.
  7. Apply top coat and you’re done!
