Hummingbird

Hi! Here you will find out how to paint this hummingbird on nails!

Step-by-step tutorial

1) Start with nails prep
2) I covered the nails with a white gel polish and cured
3) I topcoated my nails, 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
