1. Remove the Old Nail Art
The first step is to remove your old nail art using a safe and smooth nail drill. MelodySusie recommends the Jade rechargeable nail drill, which is perfect for beginners and salon owners alike due to its small size and lightweight handle.
2. Glue the Nail Tips
Next, glue on your nail tips. Making sure to press your nail tightly in a non-enclosed space to avoid air bubbles. Choosing a UV/LED nail art lamp that can be adjusted at will would make this step easier.
3. Apply the Acrylic Powder
To make your nail tips last longer, apply acrylic powder reinforcement using a kolinsky brush is essential. For beginners, it's recommended to use a small size brush to make practice easier. MelodySusie also provides some kolinsky brush cleaning tutorials to help you out.
4. Create the Smudge Effect
Now it's time to create the smudge effect. Use a brush, such as the brush that comes with the nail gel polish, to blend the color and create a more natural-looking finish.
We also recommend using a nail airbrush, as it can significantly reduce your smudging time.
5. Glue the Rhinestone
You can use the UV gel or nail glue to glue your decorations. Both of them are useful. Also, don't forget to use the UV/LED lamp.
6. Apply the Top Coat
The top coat is just as important as the roof of a house, and it determines how long and securely your manicure will last.
