- I started with two coats of Barry M Gelly Key Lime.
- Then, I used a small nail art brush and OPI My Vampire Is Buff to create simple leaf veins.
- I grabbed a half way used up bottle of Seche Vite top coat (wanting a thicker formula) and dabbed a glob onto my placemat.
- Then, I used a dotting tool and swirled it while I blew on it to dry it out a bit more. This is exactly what I do when I am going to do the sugar spun technique.
- Once it was thicker, I dabbed different sized dots all over my nails. If the top coat wasn't dried out more than normal, it would start to flatten out defeating the purpose of the dew drops.
Aside from the bubbles that seemed to be in the bigger dew drops (probably from swirling to dry out), they turned out just as I planned. I'll have to try to let the top coat dry sitting instead of swirling next time to see if I can avoid the bubbles.
