Cute Hedgehog

Hi! In this tutorial I will describe how to paint this cute hedgehog on nail!

Step-by-step tutorial

1) Start with nails prep for gel polish application
2) I applied a white gel polish and cured
3) I topcoated the nail, cured and wiped off the tacky layer
4) Then I buffed the nail with not rough nail buffer (I used 240 grit). (It is easier to draw on the rough surface, so I did 3-4 steps) Cleaned the nail with a cleanser
5) I sketched my design in pencil

I added shades onto his face (a top coat plus a brown gel polish), and onto the wall and the table (a top coat plus a black gel polish). Also I painted blush using the mix of a top coat and a pink gel polish. Cured for 2 minutes in UV lamp or 30 seconds in LED lamp
