20+ Alluring Agate Nails You Will Love

Agate nails may look like a difficult nail design to do but it is actually very simple to achieve the design and you can totally do it yourself at home.

Agate is a semiprecious stone that stores in concentric layers within the cavities of molten rocks, shaping their characteristic banding. A few of these cavities are lined with precious stones called geodes.

  • To begin, apply your base coat and let it dry.
  • Then apply the gel nail polish color that you would prefer to be your base and let it cure.
  • Now take a piece of foil or even plastic and layout your gel nail polishes on it in an irregular ribbon pattern. Use different nail polish colors as you would like.
  • Now, with your flat brush, pick the colors from the foil and transfer them to your nails.
  • Once you have your desired nail design, let it cure.
  • Now using your dotting tool, pick some gold glitter polish and draw a line at the edge of the agate to give it a nice bold border.
  • Then pick up tiny pieces of the gold flecks and place them where the center of the agate would be and press them firmly so they stick.
  • Apply a layer or UV top coat and cure for 60 seconds.
