1) Prep nails for gel polish application
2) I covered the nail with two coats of a white gel polish and cured each of them

4) I began painting Emily. I covered her face with a thin layer of a blue gel polish and her hair with a dark blue gel polish. Cured a little (because the layers were thin)

10) I added final touches to the whole design. I drew her eyebrows, lashes, pupils, contoured her wreath, strands of hair and lips using black gel paint. Also I highlighted her lips and nose using white gel paint. Cured for 2 minutes in UV lamp (or 30 seconds in Led lamp)
