1. Preview of the course - What you will learn: Hello everyone. In this tutorial, I'm gonna show you how to do both of these designs. One of them is the clown from it and the other one is just the saying it, and it looks kind of bloody scary. It's perfect for Halloween. You're going to learn to decorations, one of which is fairly easy and fast to do. And yet no one is more detailed and suitable for clients who have to wait and get a great result in the end, the course is going to be divided in five modules. In module one, you're going to learn how to actually draw the face and scheduled onto the needle. Then you're going to learn how to apply the basic colors. In module three, you are going to learn the shading. Module four is going to be all about the final details, highlights and all that jazz that make the actual design finalized. And then in the fifth module I'm going to show you the easier design, which is just the letters. If you will also be invited to a private Facebook group which I made just for my students. There you can share your designs and get feedback. So I hope to see you soon. And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you. 2. Lesson 1 - How to sketch the clown on the nail and get the right proportions: In this video series, I'm going to show you how to paint the client from it using gel polish is, I'm going to divide the course in five sections. This is the first one in which I'm going to teach you how to sketch the drawing. First, we're going to start off by painting nail in white. If you're working on a client, I recommend that you do that twice so that there is better coverage and it doesn't pay to make sure that it's all even. And when you're done clearing the land for one minute. So data play a math top coat on top of the whole. Neil makes sure that everything is covered. And when you're done cure and a lump for one minute. If your top called header sticky layer now is the time to remove it. I'm using cleaner to do that. Then grab a pencil and we're gonna start drawing some lines. We're going to start off by making one right in the middle of the nail, vertically and horizontally. Then we're going to need two more from each site. Make sure that they're in the same distance from each other. And then we're going to do some horizontal wines as well, making sure that we're making squares. The more perfect your squares are, the more perfect your sketch is going to be. But don't worry too much about it. Just make sure that they at least look like squares. They don't have to be perfect, but they don't need to be rectangular. Yours. Now when you're done, grab the picture that you've printed off of your design. And we are going to translate those lines. Their first, I'm going to see where the middle is because I don't want to paint the whole phase. I just want, I just it's left side. So I'm going to focus my drawing on the left side of the face. And Joe, the first dot which is going to be the middle. And then I'm going to see there is six squares in total, three on top and three on bottom. So I'm going to try to draw these squares on the photo as well. If you don't have a printer or you don't want to do this manually. You can also use an app called grid. You can upload your image there and set the number of squares. And it's going to basically do that for you. And then you can just look in the picture, looking at your grade and copy whatever is in each square. So for me, the most important thing in this image is the left half of the North and half of the map. So I'm making sure that they fit in actually the two squares that are in the middle. So I can kind of see the shape of the nose and I'm going to start growing it. And make sure that you kind of think of this in terms of proportions. So you can see on which side of the square root and know, starts where it ends, that it kind of goes into the other square. Basically judge the image square by square, but also look at the big picture as well. Because if you're squares are not perfect, it's gonna look a bit distorted. Starts catching the nose. Here I can see that it ends in the lower half between these two squares. It's like a little triangle on top. Then I'm going to see the mount has, it's located in this. I'm going to start drawing it like an arch. And then joining these two. Because I can see that the whole mount fits in this square mainly. And then kind of goes overlap congenital ones here in the middle of this square. So I'm just going to join up the lines. This part of his makeup ends here. You can kind of trace the drawing and then do the same thing on the nail. Then the kind of come up here. Basically all I'm doing is comparing my squares to the picture squares and copying whatever is in each one. Each td is slightly smaller than the one next to it. And then we've got the dark. And now I'm going to draw the right eye, Nikos, I think it kind of fits in my image a bit. So it starts from here right in the middle of this square. And then it goes on jet u1 as well. But it's a really small i. And then I'm going to start the left eye. I can see it's located in the square. Right in the middle of it. Slide didn't go. So you can see the lower arch here. And then we just need the makeup. And when you're done with the sketch, it's gonna look something like that. In the next video, I'm gonna show you how to apply the basic colors. 3. Lesson 2 - How to paint the basic colours: In the second video, I'm gonna show you how to use the base colors and add a bit of shading to I. We're gonna start off with the yellow and I'm just going to baited right inside the eye. And the teeth. Just paint inside the lines that you've already drawn. It's like coloring book. It's so good. And when you're don't flush curing the Lamb for ten seconds. Then I'm gonna take some red gel polish and we're gonna start just under corners. And then I'm going to use a bit more yellow to mix them in, make them blend. Then we're going to flush cure again for ten seconds. Now I'm going to use more of the red and start painting the islet lower one. Just keep looking back to the photo dot error using the colors that are there. You want to match them because they see a bit of a red hint. I'm gonna regret. There's too much red. We're going to flush tour again for density. Now I'm going to mix some translucent black to that. I'm using a black child paint and top coat, which is shiny and has a sticky. And I'm gonna start shading. And I'm going to start from the upper corner and slide it over. If you add a bit more top coat, you're just gonna blend nicer. But I feel like this part needs to be darker, so I'm just going to use the black TO paint and add a bit of black covering direct paint. But then just blend until you like it. Okay. The top coach you and when you're done one minute. Now I feel like it's not too dark and I wanted to read one more time. So I'm going to add a bit more of the black race. Then. I just keep comparing to your picture. Right? When you reach a point that you are happy with it, you can just ten seconds. I'm going to take down the basic colors. Again, just like coloring book here, just going to go into lines. And the color doesn't move. Okay. Wow. Two. No. Right. 310 seconds. Why? John? Yeah. And before we go to the next video, I'm just going to remove the and cell lines using a cleaner or whatever you use to remove this declare. Don't be afraid your colors are not going to go away. And in the next video, I'm gonna show you how to shade. 4. Lesson 3 - How to add shadows: In this video, we're going to do the shading. I'm gonna start off with the nose. I'm using the mix of the black gel paint and the top coat. Then placing it on top of the denounce. Now with some more top coats, I'm gonna blend it. I'm just looking at the photo and seeing where the shadows in the picture and translating them onto the nail. When you're done cure and Dylan for ten seconds. Now I'm going to move on to the ellipse. I'm first going to paint just the black bit Under the teat because I know that this part needs to be really dark. I'm just using the black gel pain, not top coat. But then I'm going to use a top coat to kind of blend it out. Lower parts of the lip. Again just with black and then blending it out. Now, I'll put some shadows inside the blood dripping is just on the side. You don't need it to be all over. And when you're done, you can flush cure for ten seconds. Okay, moving on to the teat. I'm gonna use the same mixture of the black top coat to separate the cheat. So basically just draw lines in between them and then blend them out. No. And when you ship you with your drawings, put it in the lumped for ten seconds. Now I'm gonna make some top coat with yellow to add a bit more oil to the teat. I'm even going to add a bit more of the red to make it darker and more orangey. I'm just going to play on the top part of the teeth like a shadow. Why? Yeah. The tree. Good. Okay. No. Who knows? Also good, right? Yeah. Okay. Then again flushed her for ten seconds when you're done because it needs a bit more dimension. Okay? Again, when you're done, churn Dylan for ten seconds, and now I'm writing some black again and the postdoc, Claire, just cleaning it a bit to clean up your message so you can use a flat brush, cleaner, or really does matter, just needs to be done rather than what. Okay. And I flashed cured it. Now I feel like the teeth are a bit wrong, so I'm going to repeat them with white, just to make them sharper. Yours, maybe find some just gave that means you are happy. Then when you're ready, cure it for one minute. In the next video, I'm gonna show you how to add some more details and highlights to finish off. 5. Lesson 4 - How to add highlights and finalize the design: Hi. In this video, I'm gonna show you how to do the highlights and finish up throwing. I'm just mixing some white with red color And I'm gonna apply under knows where I can see that there is a highlight. And I'm just diving in as well to make it look like pores. Now I just need some top called to make it a bit translucent to blend it a bit. And I'm also going to add it to the lip. We could have been like that. When you're ready. Now I'm just gonna use some white jumpy. I'm going to add a bit to make it pop. Also gonna add it to the lip. Okay. Add some highlights here as well. Just to make it more interesting. When you're done for ten seconds. I feel like the teacher not yellow enough, so I'm just going to grab some yellow gel polish and a bit more just on the top. And curing the land for ten seconds. Now I'm going to add a bit more black to the eye. These are just the final touches, things that I don't like about my drawings. Maybe yours looks good already and you're ready to go. But I feel like I need to do this. So I'm just going to show them to you anyway. I feel like my clown doesn't look in the right place. So I'm just going to fix that. Washcloth and Dylan per seconds. And I'm just gonna use the same color of gel polish that I have in the background to fix the I again, as I said, may be yours looks good already and you don't need to follow these steps. These are just what happened to my drawing. And I've decided to show them to you so that you know how to fix your work if this happens. So I'm just using the same color of gel polish. Then using a top coat, I'm gonna blend it out. Step 22. Okay. Two. Two. Oops. Me too. Right. For one minute. Now I'm going to add a bit again inside the first steps that I did in the first video, in a second, actually laid down the colors just because I didn't like my drawing. But again, as I said, your smell good already. Some more of the shadows. Well, you're absolutely right for one minute to make sure that it's all even for one minute. If you're top coat sticky, now's the time to remove it. And we're going to use just a shiny top call to highlight some of the parts that we want to be shiny. I've chosen to do the blood drips and the parts that are highlighted. So basically the nose, a bit on the inside and a bit on the makeup. When your hip. For one minute. This is the design. I think it looks great when there is a mixture between math and shiny and loads of plans like that. It's different, it's unique, and it definitely caught the eye. Now these are the two design scatter. Thank you so much for watching. In the next video, I'm gonna show you how to do that sign on the right, which is the letters. It thanks. 6. Lesson 5 - How to do a quick and easy IT text design which compliments the clown: Hello. In this video, I'm going to show you how to do the nail on the right. It spells it, and it looks kind of bloody. First, I'm gonna start off by painting the nail in white. If you're working on a client, I recommend that you do that twice so that you have a better coverage and it doesn't peel off. Make sure that it's all evil. And when you're done, you're in the lung for one minute. Now I'm going to grab a really thin brush and some red gel polish, and I'm going to start drawing the letters. They don't need to be perfect. They actually need to be a bit wiggly so that they look like blood dripping. You need the lines to be different. Inconsistency like to go from a thicker line to a thinner line. To do that, you're going to place a blob of color onto the nail and then use the brush to kind of drag it on. And this is going to create a thin line effect. Don't be afraid to make the lines a bit occur so that they're more visible. Now I'm going to crop a chorus brush that I used to remove the dust from the client's nails. I'm gonna dump it into DO red paint and then just press it onto the nail. And this is going to give you the effect of God's flushes. Its really a random, there is no right or wrong way of doing it. Just do it. And when you're done, cure in one minute, I'm going to apply some MATLAB code. Make sure that it's o. And the whole Neo is covered. When you're done cure in the lung for one minute. Now, if your markup code has a sticky layer, remove it using a cleaner. Then we're going to make some black job pained and top coat which is shiny and doesn't have a sticky layer. And we're going to create a black color which is a bit transparent. And using that color we're going to start applying on top of the red. Just make sure that you live some of the parts. Just to be read. You don't want the whole thing to turn dark. And as you can see here, I'm just applying it on the left side of the letter. And then here I'm going to add a bit more here. And then to the squashes as well. Just really randomly. Basically this is going to give you a shiny effect. And you dont need a top coat again because you've mixed it already with the top coat. So it's just going to stay shiny. And I just want to add a bit more red here because I think over the black. Then when you're done cure in the lung for one minute. And that your design is done. You have a mixture of math and shiny, which creates a really interesting effect. And it goes well with drawing that we did of the clown. Thank you so much for watching and I'll see you soon. Bye.
