HOW TO: MIX & MATCH MANI

After winning the Bio Sculpture So Nailicious Novice Instagram Competition, we invited Christine David from Serenity Nail Spa to show us how to create a dazzling look using Bio Sculpture Gel products and nail art accessories.

Christine explains: The first look I’ve created is a ‘mix & match’ mani which uses two contrasting colours, finished with some gold studs to give it some edge. I’ve also incorporated the concept of the ‘outline manicure’ using the darker nail polish colour, which is one of the hottest new nail art tends.

This bold look is the perfect fashion accessory and can be customised to suit your style. You can also tone this down using just one feature nail and/or adjust the amount of bling to create your own unique set of nails.

Bio Sculpture Products Used

Executive Base
Turquoise Teacup # 120
Licorice # 2017
High Gloss Top Coat
Striping Tape
Studs – Gold Bars (middle finger), 3x3mm Black Squares, Small Round Gold Studs
Nail Art Brush

Steps

1. Paint base coat, and when dry paint base colour. I used two coats of #120 on each nail.

2. When dry, apply striping tape on tips of fingers and ensure it is pressed down firmly, so no colour bleeding occurs. Apply #2017 to the nail free edge.

3. Using the Nail Art Brush and #2017 paint a frame around the base and up the sides of the nail plate, to the striping tape – this gives a stunning frame to the nail.

4. With a small dot of wet nail polish or gel, use a dotting tool, skewer or similar to place each stud on the nail.

5. Secure the studs and seal the nail polish or gel with High Gloss Top Coat, which will also give your mani an amazing shiny finish.

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!

THE LATEST IN NAIL ART WITH BIO SCULPTURE

It’s hard to keep track of what’s what in the world of celebrity and fashion, so Bio Sculpture have compiled a run down of the latest in nail art so you don’t have to! From red carpets to runways to real life, nail art continues to turn heads. Here are some of Bio Sculpture’s favourite looks.

 

BIO SCULPTURE FOR TOI ET MOI

Cult Aussie fashion brand Toi et Moi recently launched their latest collection at beautiful French restaurant L’Etoile, capturing their chic French aesthetic perfectly. Every detail was crucial to the overall look, right down to the models’ nails. Bio Sculpture were selected to look after the nails, and worked with the designer Gill Lawrence to create the perfect colour palette.

To suit the print heavy collection, a three colour palette was chosen including the hot 2013 trend of monochrome, with #1 French White and #2017 Licorice, as well as a chic Parisian red – #117 Breaking Dawn. Breaking Dawn was chosen for it’s rich ruby colour and subtle shimmer, and the way it perfectly contrasted against the strong black and white.

 

THE MET GALA- PUNK: CHAOS TO COUTURE

Never have nails had more focus on a red carpet than they did at the 2013 Met Gala. With the theme of Punk to inspire them, guests were able to let their imaginations run wild. No boring nudes on show here – instead, rich metallics, elaborate nail art and plenty of studs were the order of the night. Our faves? Nicole Ritchie and Sienna Miller!

Nicole went with an incredibly glamorous reverse moon manicure with a difference. The gorgeous deep berry and gold combo perfectly offset her beaded gown and we love the love heart look that was subtly created. To give this look a try, use two coats of #2018 Passion Plum first to create the rich base coat. Then use circular stickers to create the heart shape and paint over with #2004 Gold Rush. If you are confident with your brushwork, try the reverse and paint the heart shape with #2018 over the top of #2004. Just be sure to apply two coats of each colour to ensure a rich colour look. And don’t forget to give the almond shape a try – this look is right on trend.

For Sienna’s look, she kept it simple but incredibly bold by taking studs the the next level. To create this look, choose a deep dark metallic or black shade – we love the Rock and Crystal collection, especially #137 Embellished Onyx with it’s decadent shimmer. Paint nails with two coats for a rich finish and then add spiked studs to the centre of the nail. If spiked studs are a little too out there, try square studs instead to still have a strong impact.

 

CANNES FILM FESTIVAL BRIGHTS

It’s always sunny in Cannes, especially when the Film Festival rolls into town. With the who’s who of celebrities walking the red carpet every night, we watched with baited breath to see what the hot nail trend would be… Turns out it was orange! Perfect for summer weather, the colour was used by Nicole Kidman to highlight the gorgeous flowers in her Dior dress, while Barbara Palvin turned basic black into anything but with her bright shade. Take your pick from Bio Sculpture’s extensive palette of orange hues to recreate the look.

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.

BIO SCULPTURE GEL AT THE LOGIES

The Bio Sculpture Gel team were given special behind the scenes access on Friday to set up a personal nail salon to prep nails for the beautiful ladies of Home and Away for TV’s night of nights – The Logies. The beauty of Bio Sculpture Gel meant that the Home and Away cast could get their nails done a few days prior to The Logies feeling confident that their nails would still be perfect for the red carpet days later, without any chips or scratches.

Nudes were the order of the day, but each chose a slightly different shade.

Ada Nicodemou, who plays ‘Leah’, chose Baby Doll for hands and feet- a soft baby pink to perfectly offset her nude peach and white dress.

Lynne McGranger, who plays the beloved ‘Irene’, selected Ashes of Roses for her toes and Dawn for her fingers- both of which subtly picked up the purple of her dress.

The latest cast member Bonnie Sveen, ‘Ricky’, selected Honey Beige on fingers, and as a manicure novice was amazed at the gel finish.

Gorgeous Emily Symons, ‘Marilyn’, chose a custom blend of Rose and White to create a super soft and subtle pink all of her own.

The lovely Lisa Gormley, ‘Bianca’, decided on Salmon Beige, her favourite Bio Sculpture colour, to offset her incredible red gown.

Newcomer, Kassandra Clementi, ‘Maddy’, went for a super sheer single coat of Ivory Beige for uber natural shine.

Take a look at some of the ladies on the red carpet- who is your favourite?
