French Polish with Artistic Colour Gloss (gel
Well hello beautiful angels, its been a while
but I am back with bundles of new ideas to keep you interested in the blog
posts. Lots have changed/evolved since I last wrote. Apart from the ever expanding
salon, services and training academy, as a Louellabelle educator I have now
been given the very prestigious title of Artistic Angel. I have therefore,
decided I will be posting some basic step-by-step instructions of the kind of
things you can expect to learn on our courses for all you budding nail
technicians out there. Not forgetting anyone wanting to try one of our
fantastic services we provide at the Jade Angel salon so you can get an idea of
the kind of high standard you can expect.
This blog post will be covering a classic
French polish. The great thing about this look is it goes with everything you
wear and never gets old. The finish is so clean and natural.
Step 1: Ensure your hands are sanitised using a
sanitizer spray I currently use Salon Systems from Sally’s.
Step 2: Prepare the nails by removing any old
polish, pushing cuticles back, removing any lose non living tissue, filling and
buffing. Ensuring the nails are smooth and free from debris.
Step 3: Use pH nail prep to remove moisture
and oils on the surface of the nail plate. This helps achieve better adhesion
by pH balancing the nail.
Step 4: Use Soak off Bonding Gel as your
basecoat. This creates the adhesion between the natural keratin in the
nail plate and gel colour. Place into your LED Pro 30 lamp
for 10 seconds.
Step 5: Dry brush your bonding gel I used
Artistic Nail Design 9 Gel Square. This helps reduce shrinkage and slipping of colour
on the surface of the nail.
Step 5: Apply your base colour, I have used
Step 6: Using the 9 Gel Oval brush, sweep
over the free edge where you plan to paint your white tip. Place into your LED
Pro 30 lamp for 30 seconds.
Apply your white tip, I have used Bride. Use your 9 Gel Oval brush to tidy up any uneven smile lines. Place into your LED Pro 30 lamp for 30 seconds.
Step 8: Apply Glossing gel as your topcoat.
Place into your LED Pro 30 lamp for 30 seconds.
Step 9: Use Nail Surface cleanser remove
the sticky layer.
Step 10: Condition with revive cuticle oil.
Here is the finished result:
That’s it from me for now.
