Method Of Doing The Amethyst Nail Art:
Follow the step by step tutorial to flaunt the amethyst nail art.
Paint a purple gel glitter polish on all the nails leaving the ring fingers on which you need to put two coats of gel. Simple, got it?
Now take out your grey acrylic powder, dip it in your acrylic liquid and start applying it to the outer edges of the nail. Yes, you need to do so only on your ring finger on which you had skipped applying the purple gel glitter polish.
At this point, apply darker acrylic grey around the outer edges of the grey acrylic powder in order to create a slight ombre effect on the nail.
Now is the time to fill the gaps with clear glitter acrylic powder. After that buffer the entire nail to attain an even surface.
Now get a bowl of water and your black acrylic paint and your nail art brush. Keep your nail art tools handy, and start with dipping your paintbrush into your paint. Then follow the line where your grey acrylic touches the purple. Quickly dip your brush back into the water and blur out the line so that it does not get a super-defined look.
Repeat the previous step by using the white acrylic paint now. Keep varying the placement and adding the water to get a blurred effect.
Now add a few small nail gems, then add your UV top coat to finish and set. Your purple amethyst is done!
