This is the first 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.
The client also has short bitten nails, which means that kirsty has to sculpt a new nail in acrylic.
Starting with prepping the nail Kirsty, removes any non living tissue, removes the surface shine with a buffer and clean with acetone. She then dehydrates and primes the nail before adding a nail form. Kirsty first uses Naio Nails Warm Beige Acrylic Powder and Max Adhesion Acrylic Liquid, to create a cover pink thin base.
Kirsty then uses Naio Nails Clear Acrylic Powder with Max Adhesion Acrylic Liquid, to pick up some of Naio’s Copper Rose Cracked Ice Mylar and add over the Warm Beige Acrylic.
Kirsty then encapsulates the Copper Rose Cracked Ice Mylar with Clear Acrylic Powder and Max Adhesion Acrylic Liquid, using a one bead application technique
Once the Acrylic has set, Kirsty uses an Electronic File/ eFile to remove any bulk, before using a 100/180 grit file to file the nail into the desired shape. After buffing the nail with a white block, She then wipes the nail using a lint free pad and pure acetone which will smooth out the nail and remove an filing marks.
Kirsty then adds a layer of Naio Nails Urban Grafitti UV/LED Mega Gloss Sealer Gel and cures that for one minute in LED or Two minutes in UV. once cured Kirsty wipes of the sticky layer with a lint free pad and Gel Residue Wipe off Solution, then finishes the nail with Naio Nails Cuticle Oil.
