Bio Sculpture Gel - Leading Nail Care

How to Bio Bubbles


HOW TO …

STEP BY STEP

1. Select two different Colour Gels of your choice (try using colours #180 Heart & Soul and #183 Free Lovin’).

2. Apply a Bio Sculpture Base Gel layer. Cure.

3. Apply two layers of the lighter Colour Gel (i.e. #180 Heart & Soul). Cure.

4. Follow with a third, thin layer, using the darker Colour Gel (i.e. #183 Free Lovin’). Do NOT cure.

5. Place small dots of Soft Gel onto the wet Colour Gel layer, using the tip of the Upper Arch Brush. Cure.

*Wait for the Gel on the tip of your brush to form a droplet, then place it.

*Work from an image of reptile skin as guidance to where smaller or larger droplets should go.

6. Apply the appropriate Strengthening Gel to seal the nail art.

7. Cure. Dual Cleanse and Refine.

8. Apply Gloss Gel for shine. Cure.

NOTE:

To create dual coloured bubbles, dot down tiny Colour Gel droplets into the centre of each / some of the Soft Gel dots before curing. Bubble sizes can differ, depending on the amount of Gel dotted down. Experiment with different patterns to achieve interesting shapes like different animal skin textures, flowers, etc.

What Colour Suits Your Complexion?

Compliment your complextion

2015 has arrived and this year we celebrate the kaleidoscope of skin colour all around the globe. Bio Sculpture® wants to encourage you to take care of your unique skin type. Love your natural tone, flaunt those freckles or beauty spots and embrace your peerless colour complexion by complimenting it with NAIL COLOUR.

Colour Skin Tone 1

There are no rules when it comes to colour although certain colours compliment certain complexions better than others. 

Determining what side of the colour wheel will embellish your complexion:

Some complexions suit just about any colour. For the rest of us, some people’s skin has a gold/yellow undertone, while others have a blue/pink undertone. Analyse your wrist. If the veins appear blueish, you have a ‘cool/ocean’ complexion. If they appear greenish, you have a ‘warm/earth’ complexion. This specific undertone will help determine the colours you wear best. Another way to analyse, is to drape a red-orange scarf around your neck. Analyse your face. Then drape a red-violet scarf and compare the two. Some people suit both, but most will definitely fall either in the ‘cool/ocean’- or ‘warm/earth’ complexion category. The same test can be done by using a yellow-green and blue-green scarf.

Understanding Colour - Spectrum

Skin tone tips:

Fair/Pale skin tones

Stick to darker colours that contrast the skin – whites and pale colours might appear washed out.

Olive/Medium skin tones

Go either light, or dark. Be careful of brown, yellow or green undertones. It could make the skin appear yellow.

Darker skin tones

Pretty much any colour goes! Be careful of going too bright, too white or too dark/black.

Skin Tone 2

As all skin tones differ, use these tips as guidelines but never stop experimenting with COLOUR!

HOW TO: BIO SCULPTURE NAIL ART

 

Statement-making nail art designs are today’s must-have fashion accessory and this look created by Bio Sculpture nail artist, Simone Gilbert of Urban Bliss Beauty, is a simple yet effective way to dress up your digits.

This stunning design is inspired by the patterns you find on turquoise gemstone jewellery and can be used on just one feature finger or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, all your nails!

Products used:

• Bio Sculpture Executive Base
#120 Turquoise Teacup Bio Sculpture nail polish
#169 The Rebel Bio Sculpture nail polish
#2017 Licorice Bio Sculpture nail polish
• Glad wrap
• Mug filled with cold water
• Hairspray
• Bio Sculpture High Gloss Top Coat
• Bio Sculpture Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover

Step 1

Apply a base coat of Executive Base and two coats of 120 Turquoise Teacup and allow to dry.

Step 2

Scrunch a piece of glad wrap up and apply a little #169 The Rebel nail polish to a section and blot on some paper to remove the excess. Very lightly dab the plastic wrap on your nail to create a marbling effect.

Step 3

Take your mug filled with water and place two drops of #2017 Licorice nail polish into the water. The nail polish will spread out and when it does, quickly spray the water with hairspray and watch as it forms an amazing pattern. Dip your finger into the mug to apply the black polish to your nails.

This exotic purple radiates energy and is the ideal accessory for parties, festivals or the beach.

175 – Havana Nights

This intense cobalt blue is youthful, fun and sporty. For a powerful contrast, pair this colour with yellows, oranges and pinks.

VOTE NOW FOR BIO SCULPTURE NAIL ART SENSATION!

Bio Sculpture is proud to announce that one of our extremely talented A-Grade nail artists, Simone Gilbert from Urban Bliss Beauty in Victoria, has taken out stiff competition from across the globe to be named a finalist in the NAILS MAGAZINE Next Top Nail Artist competition.

Launched to find the best up-and-coming nail artists, the NAILS magazine competition puts contestants through several challenge rounds, eliminating contestants each week and we’re thrilled Simone is down to the top 12!

A large part of the next elimination process will be based on voting, so we want you to get behind our local Bio Sculpture sensation and vote for her to win each week here!

Here’s a snapshot from Simone of her amazing journey so far!

“In January this year, I decided to apply for the NAILS Next Top Nail Artist competition after creating these Godzilla inspired nails out of 100% Bio Sculpture Gel.”

“I was then required to set up a YouTube channel and create a 3-4 minute video explaining to the selection panel why I should be chosen to compete. Along with the video, I had to prepare two essays and submit just 10 photos of my work to showcase my nail art.

Five months later I received the incredible news I had been selected for the top 24 who competed in the following two pre-challenge elimination rounds to fight for our places in the top 12.”

Elimination pre-challenge #1- Theme Music

Create a 3D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on music

You can check out how Simone created this magnificent artwork on YouTube. 

 

Elimination pre-challenge #2 – Visual Art

Choose a visual artist you admire and create your own masterpiece using their signature style

“My Uluru mural was inspired by my favourite visual artist, Australian photographer, Ken Duncan. Photography, as an art form, is hard to capture on a nail without the use of decals, so I chose to paint my landscape design emulating the small, short brush strokes commonly found on a Monet masterpiece. A step by step tutorial is featured on the NAILS Magazine nail art gallery.”

“After making it through to the top 12, we were asked to create something to celebrate being selected.  For this design, I used watercolour paints and Bio Sculpture Gel,” explains Simone.

“I’d like to thank everyone in the nail community so much for their support with this enormous opportunity I have been given. I hope I can live up to everyone’s expectations and do the Bio Sculpture Gel brand proud!”

You have already made us very proud Simone!!

Keep up to date with Simone’s progress on her Facebook page and Instagram.

GUEST BLOGGER: SIMONE GILBERT, URBAN BLISS BEAUTY, MELBOURNE

We invited the extremely talented, award winning nail artist Simone Gilbert to create one of her favourite nail art looks for winter.

Simone explains: “I love creating 3D nail art and one of the most popular accessories with my clients is studs. Incorporating them on a feature nail adds stunning depth, texture and an extra hint of glam! Here are my top tips for applying and securing studs, gems or crystals for a three dimensional finish.”

Bio Sculpture Products Used:

Steps

1: Clean and prepare the nail for your gel application. Apply Vitamin Dose to hydrate and nourish the nail.

2: Apply Executive Base to the centre of the nail bed and, once dry, lightly buff to remove the polish shine using your Grey Sponge file, being careful not to completely remove the polish. This step will not interfere with gel adhesion and ensures maximum protection of the nail during the removal process. Most importantly, it makes the gel faster to remove.

3: Apply a layer of Base Gel and cure with Bio Sculpture’s LED lamp for 30 seconds.

4: Apply two coats of #167 Seductive Lights to all nails except the feature fingers and cure each layer.

5: Using a sheet of Bio Sculpture Gold Foil Nugget, tear pieces off and apply to the feature nail. Pat down using your finger and cure for 10 seconds.

6: Apply a building layer of Hard Gel, cure for 60 seconds and then wipe away the tacky residue. Buff if required to shape.

7: Apply a thin layer of Soft Gel and while still wet apply your Gold Dots (studs) and cure for 30 seconds.

8: Apply a very thin layer of UV Top Coat gel as your finishing layer to seal in the studs and cure for 60 seconds. Remove residue and apply Cuticle Oil to the nail.
