After the successful launch of Artistic Nail Design’s Rock Hard Gel, the company is excited to introduce their Rock Hard Liquid & Powder Kits. Build strong, natural-looking enhancements with the Rockstar, Flawless French or Rockin’ French Collection. See the application process here.
Step 1: Follow the steps for Rock Hard Nails preparation and Get Bent Nail Form application. Saturate your Artistic #8 Oval Acrylic. Brush with Center Stage Monomer Liquid and wipe the liquid completely off your brush on a lint free wipe.
Step 2: Pick up a medium bead of VIP Pink or Clear and wait until it turns creamy. Place the bead on the apex area. Tap the top edge of the bead as close to the cuticle as possible, leaving a tiny margin between the product and the skin. Press the bottom edge of the bead onto the nail form to create the extension and smooth the surface.
Step 3: Pick up a second bead of VIP Polymer Powder, wait until creamy and place at the apex of the nail. With your brush held flat, lightly pat the product towards the cuticle and brush the bead towards the end of the extension to fill in low spots, build the arch, and provide strength and structure.
Step 4: Carefully remove the Get Bent nail form. Use an appropriate size Artistic C-Curve Stick under the edge of the nail and press the edge of the nail around it to create a C-curve.
Step 5: Gently press on each side of the nail with your thumbs to hold the C-curve in place while the product continues to cure. Repeat steps on all 10 nails.
Step 6: File the freshly applied product with nothing coarser than a180-grit Aspect File.
