I tried cable knit once before, and it came out pretty crappy. Using gel with acrylic powder make it rough and it didn't flow as nicely. I tried it again this time using just clear gel and colored gel, and it worked out well! I went over it a couple of times to get the 3D effect more noticeable. The negative space nail was a challenge, and even more so on my opposite hand. I just drew a heart, and colored in around it. I didn't have any gold glitter polish, so I just used some tiny gold beads to outline the heart.
