Beautiful nails are everywhere at holiday time, and clients don’t want to be left out! Make sure you can exceed expectations no matter what the client chooses—an elegant long-wear Shellac look from CND, a nail art design created with Gelish’s Don’t Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle striping tape, the sparkly looks made easy with Morgan Taylor’s Mini Glitter 4-Pack or the classic, rich shades that all the brands show during this season.
GET THE "BLACK LACE" LOOK:
STEP 1: Apply a thin layer of Shellac Base Coat. Cure for 10 seconds in the CND LED Lamp.
STEP 2: Apply two thin layers of Shellac Alluring Amethyst. Cure each layer for one minute.
STEP 3: Apply Vinylux Black Pool to the pattern in a stamp-ing plate.
STEP 4: Use the stamping scraper to remove excess color, roll stamper over pattern and apply to the nail.
STEP 5: Apply a thin layer of Shellac Dark Diamonds in a crescent shape around the left side of the nail. Repeat on the lower half of the right side of the nail.
STEP 6: Apply a thin layer of Xpress Top Coat. Cure for one minute.
STEP 7: Wipe with 99% isopropyl alcohol to remove the top film.
