Airbrushing has officially made a comeback, and art aficionados will appreciate the retro technique when used to create a crosshatch French design.
Tip! Practice the airbrush design before painting it on nails to make sure the air pressure is correct.
Sculpt an extension with clear acrylic. Apply cover pink to the entire nail, then file and buff the extension to the desired shape.
Apply liquid latex around the perimeter of the nail. Then, mix together blue and white airbrush paint. Fill the paint gun with the mixture and then, holding the gun at an angle a few inches away from the nail, spray paint a French tip.
Once the paint has dried, hold a nail form at an angle over the tip of the nail. Using the form as a guide, spray paint short diagonal lines across the tip with white airbrush paint.
Repeat Step 3, holding the nail form in the opposite direction to create a crosshatch design. Finish with top coat.
