How to DIY a Candy Ball for Nails: Instruction + Video Tutorial

The technique of creating CANDY BALL nail embellishments is quite simple, You just need to take a clear builder gel (without bubbles in it, of medium density), a dotting tool (or a toothpick, an orange wood stick, a thick needle, etc.), and a gel paint for drawing flower petals.

The first step will be to take a toothpick, dip it into gel and cure 10 sec in a lamp. Be sure to rotate the toothpick with a gel bubble, and it will have a right round shape. Now dip this small bubble into the builder gel once more. Cure. Repeat as many times as needed, then draw petals on some of the layers with a white, pink (or any other color needed) gel paint (chequerwise). The final step will be to cure the candy ball in a lamp for a minute, them cover with a finish top coat. Cure in a lamp. Pull out the toothpick. File the bottom a bit (some file a lot of the bottom part to make the candy flower ball smaller). Your cute nail embellishment is ready! Good job, girl!

And we advise making several candy balls, as you’ll like this new idea.
