Wintertime means Sweater Nails!

January 10, 2023

Are you ready to take your nail art game to the next level and embrace the cozy vibes of sweater season? We’ve got the perfect tutorial for you! With just a few simple steps, you can create stunning sweater nails that will have everyone asking where you got your nails done. Let’s dive right in!

Step 1: Prep Your Nails

Before we begin, ensure your nails are clean and ready for some creative magic. Remove any old polish and shape your nails to your desired length and style. Apply Perfect Match PrimeBond Nail Dehydrator & Gel Base Coat to build the perfect foundation for your manicure. 

Step 2: Apply Base Color Coats

Start by applying two coats of Perfect Match “Lilac Lux” Gel polish. This will serve as the base color for your sweater nails (but feel free to branch out!) After each coat, don’t forget to cure your nails for 60 seconds under a UV or LED lamp to set the color.

Step 3: Create the Sweater Pattern

Now comes the fun part! Using a fine liner brush and the “Lilac Lux”, draw the lines to create a cozy sweater pattern directly on your nails. Use our dotting tool to make your designs as intricate or a simple as you like. Don’t cure yet! 

Step 4: Add Some Texture

To give your sweater nails that authentic, textured look, it’s time to pour some clear 3in1 powder over the top of your design. Tap off any excess powder and then cure your nails once again to lock in that fantastic texture.

Step 5: Fine-Tune the Details

Repeat steps three and four, drawing over your design one more time with “Lilac Lux” to create dimension to the sweater nail. With the gel polish still wet, pour more 3in1 clear powder over the design for texture.

Step 6: Seal the Deal

Cure for 60 seconds for a final time, and you’re done!
