Fimo Canes

By now we’ve all heard of fimo or polymer canes, but the new way nail techs are using fimo is raw or uncured. When the clay is not baked it stays soft and pliable with a consistency like Play-Doh, which is why it’s so great for nail techs. Simply apply a very thin enhancement and file. Then lay down a thin slice of raw polymer clay. Use a C-curve stick or the handle of your brush like a rolling pin to roll the clay out. Wrap it around the enhancement and encase it completely with clear product. It must be sandwiched between acrylic or gel because the uncured clay should not sit on the natural nail.
