Fashion Matching Nail Art – Creating a Lacey Design to match Dress Design – Nail Tutorial

This is the second in a series of videos in which Kirsty Meakin, creates the full look. She has a client who has designer dress and wants her nails to match the theme of the dress.

Firstly Kirsty Preps the nail by using Nail Prep Dehydrator and Acid Free Primer before putting on a Sculpting Form. She then applies warm beige acrylic powder and max adhesion acrylic liquid.

Kirsty then uses an eFile to remove any unwanted thickness before using a 180/180 grit hand file to refine the edges of the nail.
She then uses a white block to smooth out any marks left by the file. and then uses Pure Acetone on a lint free pad to clean and slightly melt the top surface of the acrylic to smooth even more.

Kirsty then uses a hard gel in the colour Modern Muse, which is a UV gel, to paint the nail. she does two thin layers. Kirsty then mixes ice white UV gel and Mega White Acrylic powder to create a putty using the putty.

After sealing the nails with Mega Gloss LED/UV Sealer Gel, Kirsty uses Gel Residue Wipe Off Solution and a 3D Brush to apply the paste in 1mm thick layers. Kirsty then uses a dotting tool to cut out sections of the putty to give the look of lace. Once it has been cured kirsty the add’s sculpting gel and bullion balls to finish the look.

Hello, I do have a question related to nails. I don’t have a lunula.. and i’ve never met anyone with the same “condition”before.. Where are my lunulas? what did i do wrong?

also, i’d like to mention that i don’t do anything to my nails.. i feel like they are pretty manly.. so if i do anything to them it would look like a sad drag queen.. and drag queens are supposed to be happy. BUT i watch every single naio nails video cause it’s super relaxing and i love listening to your voice. i hope this is not that weird.

Quick question…when I use the colored caviar beads the color washes away and I’m left with silver caviar beads, do you know what i could do to keep the color from fading?

Micky Neumann says:

woooohooooo sooooo beautiful ♡

yvette vargo says:

can you show use how you make an aquarium nail?

Ke-rung Suen says:

I have a little question, wishing Kristy can give me some suggestion.

My friend called me, she wants me to do her nail (of course for free…), but I know her ring finger have a serious curve and her middle finger also have a little curve to her ring finger, if she has long nails, the ring finger nail will cross her middle finger, but she wants me to do extremely long nails because she loves to.

In this case, should I just go for it or make some kind of balance?

Lioness7 says:

thank u for letting me know that ur gels are Led curable. they should fix that on Naio ‘s websites. :0)

maddie button says:
