Close up of the nail details.

What if I told you that these amazing nails were created with a few packs of press ons and a pair of scissors? True story. It might look like an intricate design that was painted by a steady hand, but the nails created for Katie Gallagher, by Casey Herman of Kiss Nails, was not only 3-D but also included zero drying time. Want to know how to recreate the look? Follow their steps, below:

•Select the correct size imPRESS nail in ‘High Hopes’ to be used as the base shade for all 10 fingers

•Take the second imPRESS shade (alternating between ‘All Fired Up’ and ‘So, So Stellar’) and find the same size nail as

the base

•Starting at the rounded cuticle side of the nail, cut a diagonal on either side to create a V shape, then repeated on the

other side of the nail, creating a longer diagonal cut (step 2)

•Next, peel off the tab and adhere the second layer onto ‘High Hopes’

•For the final layer, repeat step 2 with the final imPRESS shade, cutting the nail into a smaller shape so that it fits inside the second layer

•Peel off the tab and adhere to the second layer, then apply final nail art look onto clean nails.

**Tip: Clean natural nails first with prep pad included for best results.

•Finish off the look by filing the base imPRESS nail to create a rounded shape
