  • Nails in faux marble: laying a transparent varnish, then a darker varnish, in order to imitate the effects of marble.
  • Decals (motifs) applied to the nails: small flowers, random shapes, drawings, etc.
  • Nails spotted:
  • Imitation of the fur of the panthers or tigers.
  • Application of a yellow varnish on which is then applied a brown varnish, after drying.
  • Piercings: it consists of sticking patterns piercings on the nails, these patterns are generally metallic.
