Hi everyone! This tutorial is for eclipse nails, I had painted these the week of the eclipse but never managed to get this video up until now. The hardest part about these are the circles if you are a perfectionist like me. I hope you all enjoy!


Start off by applying a base coat. I used Orly’s “Bonder Rubberized Base Coat.”


Apply a dark polish as the base color, I used Julep’s “Ilsa.”


Then, apply large yellow dots on the center of all of the nails. I used a large dotting tool and Delta Cermacoat’s “Pale Yellow.”


With the same dotting tool and your base color create the phases of the eclipse. The thumb and pinky should just be the sun. Place a dot on one side of the circle (opposite of the other nail) on the pointer and ring finger to create a half moon shape. Then the middle finger should be a full eclipse with a dark dot right in the center of the yellow dot.


Lastly, apply a top coat. I used Orly’s “Polishield All-In-One Ultimate Top Coat.”


Your Eclipse Nails are finished!
