3. Apply blue gel polish

Do the same thing as you did with the soft pink gel polish, but this time on the opposite side of the nail. Place the blue line just a bit lower and follow the natural curve of your nail.

5. Swirl the polish

Starting from the gold dot in the center, use a dotting tool to slowly swirl the gel polish around the nail in a circular pattern until you reach the tip of the nail. This will help blend it in a really natural way while creating an interesting design.

    Did you cure the black before you put on the colors to swirl? It looks very easy but for once I would love to see someone do something on camera to their dominant hand!
