  • How to paint a gradient nail. Under The Sea Nails - Step 1
    Step 1

    First apply a base coat to protect your nails and let it dry. Then apply a mask (this is a product you can buy it on a beauty shop or you can even use liquid latex which is exactly what it is). This is used to avoid messy edges while doing artistic nails such as these ones.
