Bio Sculpture Gel - Leading Nail Care

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.
