    Step 3

    Use builder gel and an orange stick to create drips on the tips of each nail. Scoop some of the gel on the pointy end of the stick, then start at the bottom of the drip and drag the gel to the tip. Keep repeating this for each droplet. Then fill in the rest of the tip. It is best to work one nail at a time, curing between each nail so you don't risk smudging anything.
