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
• Bio Sculpture Quick Dry Spray

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.

Clean up any polish on the skin using Bio Sculpture Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover.

Step 4

Apply High Gloss Top Coat to finish and a spray of Quick Dry, a fast drying polish spray.

Statement Fireworks

Feel that holiday spirit in your fingers with an explosive, glittering fireworks design using two contrasting colours and plenty of sparkle! (Gels used: #129 Prince gradated with #138 Melting Mercury, #2017 Licorice)

GET YOUR NAILS INTO SHAPE!

Healthy manicured nails are the perfect beauty accessory to flaunt at the beach, pool and parties, so with summer on its way there’s never been a better time to whip your nails into shape!

Along with booking a Bio Sculpture Gel overlay (of course!) to keep your nails protected from the elements, here are some of our top tips for perfect summer nails.

BUFF UP: Remove dead skin cells from hands and feet and polish your skin with an exfoliating product like our Apricot Kernel Scrub to provide the perfect base for your manicure and pedicure. If you suffer from cracked heels apply heel balm to nourish the affected area.

MASK IT: Feet and hands can benefit from a moisturising mask just as much as your face can. Try our Mint Mask and for a decadent warming effect, wrap hands or feet covered with your mask in a warm towel and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing.

PROTECT: Defend hands and feet from premature aging by the sun’s rays with a nourishing hand cream containing a UV filter which will leave them feeling hydrated and soft.

PREP WORK: Prepare nails by removing stubborn skin from the nail plate and around the cuticle area with a softening cream or oil like Bio Sculpture’s Cuticle Remover. Use weekly to maintain healthy cuticles.

FIRST BASE: Apply Executive Base to strengthen weak nails and protect from discolouration.

GET GLOSSY: Finish your mani or pedi with a protecting top coat containing a sun filter that will shield your polish or gel from UV light exposure.

For more tips, visit your local Bio Sculpture Gel technician or call 1300 BIO GEL.

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.
