Here are Stelmaschuk’s steps for this month’s cover look:

 

 

1. Prep the nails and apply a layer of En Vogue Super Bond, then Connector, and cure. Affix forms and sculpt the nail with En Vogue Rosé Modeling Resin and cure. Shape the nails with a 100/180-grit hand file.

2. Wipe the nails with alcohol and begin color blocking. Start at the cuticle and work downward, flash curing after each section. Colors used: En Vogue Flamingo Simply Color, Black Lac It!, and White Lac It! Cure and wipe with alcohol.

3. Use Simply Color Black to draw thin lines on the white and smudge them with alcohol. Cure. Apply a layer of Fiber Gel to seal the marbling, cure, and wipe the dispersion layer. Repeat on the black, creating marble lines with En Vogue Ultra White.
