B’ Polished salon owner Tiffani Cordoza shows us how to do these clear, pink, blue, and bedazzled nails!
1) Prep the natural nail using a mini contour bit by Elegant Glass Nails (lightly etch the nail plate).
2) Remove the dust with a manicure brush and cleanse with nail cleaner. Apply 2 coats of Fusion primer. Using sheer pink acrylic powder pick up a medium sized ball of acrylic and place at the cuticle area guiding down towards the free edge.
3) While the acrylic is still wet, quickly place 3 small beads of colored acrylic (neon glow pink, neon glow orange, lagoon breeze by EGN) on nail.
4.) Swirl the acrylic using a needle pen or your acrylic brush. Taper down to create a flowing nail.
5.) Using Elegant Glass NA 1086 glitter and Clearvue acrylic, apply a minimal amount of glitter and taper up over the marble and down over the free edge.
6.) Work quickly and apply your TINZL (tinsel-like glitter) to the wet product. Press and hold until the TINZL will remain in place when you release the hold. TINZL is available at www.elegantglassnails.com.
7.) Using your fingers or a pinching tool pinch in a C curve. Cap the free edge and all art in Clearvue clear acrylic; pinch again if needed.
8.) File & finish by blinging with rhinestones, metal bows, glow in the dark dots and much more from EGN!
9.) Seal with EGN D Glass cure 2 min and DONE!
