A SensatioNail Summer Tutorial.

*Sponsored Post

Hi there Everyone!!!! Today I have some great nail art for you with a little tutorial. 
Summer is here and if you are like me, you will love bright colours on your nails for summer. So today I am using SensatioNail Gel polish for this mani. 

 SensatioNail Have just released 5 new colours for summer and boy oh boy they are bright and awesome!!!! With all  SensatioNail Gel polishes they take only 1 min to cure under LED lamp and their top coat only takes 30 seconds. and their gel will last up to 2 weeks with out chips!

OK! So lets check out what we need to recreate this summer fun manicure.

Flower Nail art.

We will need- 
*  SensatioNail LED lamp
*  SensatioNail gel polish in - Teenie Bikini, Cabana Boy, Beat the Heat, Ride the Wave, Sun Kissed, White Lily and Glitter Silver.
*  SensatioNail Base/Top coat
SensatioNail primer
*  SensatioNail cleanser
* Lint free wipes
*Acetone based nail polish remover.
* Black stamping polish (I used one from the Nail Stamping Queen)
* Stamping plate (Messy Mansion number20)
*stamper and scraper (i use an old store card as my scraper)
* fine paint brush
*nail Aprons (i used lokis nail vinyl ones)

You can change the brand of stamper or plate to any pattern really and recreate this effect with  SensatioNail gel polish.

Step 1-  Prep your nails with the primer. Place one coat of base coat and cure for 30 seconds. 
Paint a coat of lily white. Cure 1 minute. Repeat.

Step 2-  With the lint free wipe and acetone, quickly wipe off the sticky layer from your gel nails. This gives the stamping polish a base to adhere too. If you do not wipe the sticky layer your stamping will smudge.

Step 3 - Once you have cleaned your nails, place your nail aprons around your nails and cuticle. This is not essential as you can clean up the excess stamping with acetone, but I like to use the aprons so I don't have to worry about clean up. You can also use masking tape or even liquid latex to do the same thing.

Step 4- With the black stamping polish, stamp your nails with the flower pattern. You will need to work quick as the stamping polish will dry quickly. this is why its great to use with gel polish as it will not react when another coat goes over it.

Step 5- Remove nail aprons. If there is any excess black stamping polish clean it up with a small brush and acetone. Paint 1 coat of  SensatioNail top coat on and cure for 30 sec. Wipe off the sticky layer.

Step 6- With a fine brush carefully paint the flowers leaves with different coloured gels.
As a tip I try and paint all of one colour on all the nails then flash cure for 10 seconds. Then I move onto the next colour.

**Did you know that if you don't have the colour you need to paint your nails you can mix 2 different SensatioNail colours to create a new colour!
I mixed Teenie Bikini and Ride the Wave to make the purple you see in my manicure!!! 

Step 7-  Once all the colours are on cure for the full 1 minute. Then lightly paint a very fine coat of the glitter silver over the pattern. Cure for 1 min.

Step 8- Finally, pop on a top coat, cure 30 sec and wipe off sticky residue.

Here is the final result!

What do you think?? It is great for a summer manicure and it gives a great effect! Plus it will last for up to 2 weeks. If you are after a more subtle effect why not try some other  SensatioNail gel colours??!
