Bio Sculpture Gel - Leading Nail Care

The Hollywood Collection is Here!



The colours of Spring/Summer 2014 are all about sweet pastels and Bio Sculpture Gel is excited to reveal our new season collection including seven stunning shades that reflect the unmistakable glamour of 1950’s Hollywood and the glittering stars of a bygone era.

Each hue in this highly anticipated collection is influenced by the essence of a silver screen icon and will deliver a perfect pastel manicure or pedicure. The shades also complement each other beautifully so can be used in combination for those looking to experiment with nail art to create a custom look.

MARILYN #153: Marilyn, was the quiet but influential leader of the group, she was slightly more daring and experimental than the others. Soft and warm as well as being strong and edgy, Marilyn knew that by simply suggesting something the others would follow. The truth was, they knew it too.

BETTE #154: Bette spent most of the day casually peering over her sunglasses to see what Marilyn was up to. The others girls knew that Bette was by far the prettiest girl of the group. Bette combined sweet femininity and tough modernity beautifully.

JACKIE #155: Jackie was the loudest of the girls. You always knew when Jackie had arrived- her laugh was contagious and she attracted people like a designer jewellery store in Hollywood.

BRIGITTE #156: Brigitte was a zesty bright spark who loved the sunshine, basking in the rays of the Californian sun she was in her element. Nothing else around her mattered at all.

ELIZABETH #157: The men loved Elizabeth, she was the most feminine of the girls who unintentionally received the most attention from the men of Hollywood. She doesn’t follow trends or fashion but was always in style.

AUDREY #158: Soft and sweet was the best way to describe Audrey, her opinion wasn’t always heard but she didn’t mind. Audrey had an edge that oozed style.

GRACE #159: Grace was the serene one who had an immense calming effect on the girls; her head was always crisp and clear like the summer waters of California’s beaches.

The Hollywood Nail Collection is now available. Bio Sculpture overlays start at RRP $50.00 and the Bio Sculpture Hollywood Nail Collection Polishes are available to purchase at selected salons nationwide, RRP $19.95.

GET THE GREAT GATSBY LOOK WITH BIO SCULPTURE

The world has been captivated by Baz Luhrmann’s classic The Great Gatsby, which depicts the glamorous era in classic Luhrmann style. Set in 1922, the film is a kaleidoscope of decadent parties and devil may care attitudes and don’t even get us started on the fashion!

From the custom made Prada gowns to the faithfully recreated Tiffany and Co diamonds, the attention to detail is impeccable. For the women of this era, personal grooming was an essential part of life to show social standing, and this carried right through to nails.

Perfectly manicured at all times, these ladies appreciated the allure of the perfect nail.

 

CAREY MULLIGAN AS DAISY BUCHANAN

Daisy kept her look very simple and classic- a subtle French Manicure on mid length, slightly almond nails. This look is perfectly created with a simple clear coat of Bio Sculpture Gel or perhaps a single coat of #2 French Pink. 

Carey however was able to get a little more into the Gatsby party spirit in her Vogue spread, featuring shimmering metallic silver. Get the look with #2015 Silver Shimmer, #138 Melting Mercury, #2001 Silky Satin or #93 Golden Silver.

 

ISLA FISHER AS MYRTLE WILSON

Myrtle Wilson was the livewire of Gatsby, eccentric and wanting to be a woman of higher standing, she craved the aristocratic life. Tantamount to this was her need to appear wealthy, hence her glamorous red nails, always impeccably manicured. Get this classic look with one of the myriad of perfect Bio Sculpture reds.

 

If that’s not enough, take a look at some Gatsby inspired manicures courtesy of Pinterest- think plenty of #2017 Licorice and #136 Smothered in Minerals!

GUEST BLOGGER: So Nailicious – Rock and Crystal How To

 

If you are anything like us, you are obsessed with So Nailicious. Creator Maria has a knack for creating the most incredible nail art and transforming humble polish into artwork for the hands. So endless is her inspiration for nails, she created the So Nailicious 30 Easy Nail Art Designs e-book which is available to purchase here.

We are thrilled that Maria is such a huge fan of Bio Sculpture polishes, especially the Rock and Crystal collection which she used in the below How To for her beautiful Art Noveau look. We can’t wait to see what she will create next! Make sure to go check her out at www.sonailicious.com.au.

Meet Maria from So Nailicious:

So Nailicious is a one stop destination to help you to make your nails look fabulous! Nail art, how to’s, nail polish reviews, nail and hand care product recommendations as well as expert tips and the latest nail trends.

Maria explains:

The popularity of nail art is growing right now. The main reason is that people are now looking for ways to make themselves happy without spending much. And, nail art is something that makes you happy while you’re doing it and even more satisfying once it’s finished. Not to mention all the compliments you can get on your creative manicure!

Mix’n’match manicures are big at the moment. The brighter the colours, the bolder the patterns – the better. Just like fashion at the moment, it’s all about freedom of expressing yourself. Studs, stripes, florals and crystals in any colour.

The Art Noveau look here includes two contrasting colours, two different techniques and different patterns on each nail, which makes it a perfect example of a mix’n’match manicure. You can re-create this look in much brighter shades (for instance, black & neon) and it would still look good! Enjoy!

Here at So Nailicious, we are big fans of Bio Sculpture. It’s rare to find a brand that ticks all the boxes – great formula, great brush, beautiful color palette and easy to work with. It’s particularly good for striping tape nail art because it dries fast and covers your nails evenly resulting in a perfectly smooth surface. Part of the the secret of these polishes perfect formula must be that they are created by nail professionals for nail professionals.

HOW TO:

  1. Paint 3 coats of Totally Topaz #140 on all nails and let it dry.
  2. Using striping tape create the pattern on each nail and paint over with Amethyst Moonstone #139. Remove striping tape.
  3. Apply studs and seal your nail art with a generous layer or three of top coat.

PARIS FASHION WEEK- TOP 4 NAIL LOOKS

Paris Fashion Week is winding down and the last week has seen a parade of some of the most luxurious Autumn/Winter fashion from all the big names- is there anywhere more romantic than Paris?  Sit back with a chocolate chaud and Ladurée macaron and take note of some of the hottest nails trends, direct from the source.

 

Sonia Rykiel featured classic red, with a subtle berry hint to reflect the colder season. The face was kept quite bare and the hair very simple, making sure the nails held centre stage. Which colour to use? #63 Moulin Rouge of course!

Tsumori Chisato was inspired by Asian influences for this show, with models featured classic winged liner and bold red lips. Metallic nails complete the look, the perfect match from the new Rock + Crystal Collection#138 Melting Mercury in particular.

The Kenzo show featured plenty of colour with bright blues as the hit of the show. This was contrasted perfectly with a deep, dark nail with subtle navy tones. Recreate by layering or mixing #2017 Licorice with #127 Victoria Falls.

Roland Mouret featured stunning geometric nail art with a V-shaped French Manicure with a difference. Again featuring the colour of the season with rich berry tones, but with a twist of white. To create this look, paint the whole nail first with #1 French White and follow with #24 Port Wine, painting downwards to leave a white triangle at the nail tip.
