Stick cellophane onto nail & achieve this stunning nail look

For a manicure with true artistic flair, draw inspiration from the beauty of stained glass windows. This multicolored glass often includes abstract shapes or even small pieces that create a larger picture, like a field of flowers or a historic figure.
To create this effect, begin by painting your nails black. This will make the iridescent glass paper catch the light. Choose an array of colored papers,and piece together a design by aligning the flat edges side by side. For the “lead” that holds the “panes” in place, use silver spider gel. Finish off the manicure with a coat of structure gel, which will fill in the gaps between the panes and give the nails a smooth appearance.
