  1. Hi Vicki
    I was wondering what process you follow to set the Dashing Diva in OPI gel - they look fantastic!

    1. They are a full-cover Metallic Nail made by Dashing Diva. I applied Dashing Diva Gel Base Coat to the entire nail, cure, apply OPI Gelcolor where you want it, cure and then top with Dashing Diva Gel Top Coat over the entire nail. Super easy and fun!!
