7) I begin shading the painting to give it more dimension. For it, I mixed a lilac gel polish with a violet one and applied it near the black contour. Also I highlighted my cupcake with the mixing of lilac and white gel polishes. I continued shading my design using a brown gel polish and added highlight onto the bottom part. To make a shade from my cupcake, I mixed gel polish top coat with little amount of a black gel polish. I created a shade under my cupcake. Cured
8) To make my design more colorful, I placed small pink, light green, yellow, and blue dots with a dotting tool. Cured
