1. Apply 2 thin coats of CND Shellac in Cream Puff and cure for 60 seonds using preset button 2s.
2. Use a detail brush and CND Shellac Boats & Bikinis to create the center tile shape. Start by creating 4 equally distanced horizontal lines to begin the design.
3. Apply CND Shellac Artisan Bizzare to the corner of a cosmetic sponge. Then use Limoncello, Olive Grove, and Terracotta Dreams to complete the shading technique.
4. Use a detail brush to create scroll like designs over each of the sponged areas in the matching CND Shellac colors and cure using preset button 2s.
5. Then finish with 1 thin coat of CND Shellac Matte Top Coat and cure using preset button 3.
6. Wipe using 99% IPA to remove the sticky film, and your guest is ready for a day at the beach!

1. Begin the look with CND Shellac Olive Grove.
2. Use cream puff to create a rough circle shape on the nail. Tidy up and add some small dots along the outer edge. Widen them and cure.
3. Use Olive Grove to make a dot within the dot and widen those as well.
4. Use cream puff to make three small dots between the large dots. Use your detail brush to pull the shape into petals.
5. Use Luxury Linen to create a center circle and Artisan Bazaar to create small petals around it.
6. With Terracotta Dreams, add some more dot details. You may prefer to stop here and top coat and buff before adding the final touches using your dotting tool, detail brush, and some CND Shellac Black Pool. Try to move slowly when creating curved lines.
7. When you're satisfied with your look, give the nail a final top coat.
