Hi! In this tutorial I will describe how to paint hot air balloon!
1) Start with nails prep
2) I covered the nail with 2 coats of a white gel polish and cured each of them
3) I sketched my design in pencil
4) Here I painted its red, yellow and blue parts with gel polishes. Also I painted wicker basket with a brown gel polish. Cured
5) I added orange (red plus yellow) and green colors. Cured
6) I painted the sky with the mix of a top coat and a blue gel polish and my clouds with the mix of a top coat and a lilac gel polish. Cured
7) In this step I shaded my balloon (red plus black gel polishes for red, orange plus red plus brown for orange, orange for yellow, green plus black for green, blue plus black for blue, brown plus black for brown). Cured a little because the layers were thin
8) I contoured my design with black gel paint and cured
9) Here I shaded my balloon and clouds with the mix of a top coat and black gel polish. Cured a little
10) I added highlights with the mix of a top coat and white gel polish. Cured for 2 minutes in UV lamp or 30 seconds in LED lamp
11) I topcoated the nail, cured and wiped off the tacky layer
Hot Air Balloon nail design is done!
