Step 1: To get this look, choose contrasting shades that make your nail art stand out. I used L'Oreal Nail Lacquer in Drama Queen as my base color. Alisha Botero, National Training Director, Nail Services for Red Door Spas advises that you layer your favorite nail polish for a great base, but ensure the polish is completely dry before starting your work. “Acrylic paints are great to work with since they wash off with water, this is great for mess ups since the polish stays on unscathed.”
