Hey! Here I will show how to paint Clumsy Smurf on nail!

Step-by-step tutorial

1) Start with nails prep for gel polish application
2) I covered the nail with 2 coats of a white gel polish and cured each of them
3) I topcoated the nail, cured and removed 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 Smurf in pencil

7) I shaded (blue with black gel polishes) and highlighted (with a white gel polish) his skin and eyes. Cured a little because the layers were thin
