He's going to kill us! We caught our graphic designer & made him try out the new Velvet Manicure by Ciate on his pinky. Trooper! ♂
  • Lol

  • @tipsyzine I wished you would of tried it on the bigger nail so I could see the full affect, lol, do you like the polish or is it like when you put a top coat of matte on?

  • @tipsyzine also want to ask you when you put studs or jewels on the nail what do you use top over it? Do you use gel or just glue and a top coat?

  • @polishedandsprayed well it's a polish and you sprinkle on this flocking velvet while the nail is wet with polish. No top coat. The box says it only lasts 48 hours. It's cool for a night out for an event. But dosnt last long

  • @polishedandsprayed also we use glue and place the diamonds and top with siche vite top coat. But I'm a nail tech as well, when I use no chip I use the no chip top coat to seal the stones on the nail. My nail tech Instagram is @astrowifey

  • @tipsyzine thanks i follow you at astrowifey, good to know I use sache vite, it's my favorite out of any of them I tried, i do hair so my hands are constantly In water so if I do nail art it has to be on acrylics or gels (gelish, cal gels, shellac,etc) otherwise it chips like crazy:-( i have been havin my nail girl do acyrlics and then doing my own designs, there's not a lot of people who do art out here, 4-5 girls and all there techniques are different, ;-( maybe you should follow that client from the chi to the bay, lol, ill send you lots of clients, anyways I am super excited for you about the Rgb event, love seeing nails do so well and be able to make money!! Also I bought the ciate cavier nails and I didn't open it and I found some beads super small at the dollar store of all places and so I think ill return the cavier nail kit:-) thanks for Sharing all your tips:-)

  • What kind of glue do u use for the diamonds?

  • @garcia1520 we like Bondini brush on glue. Found at Sally's beauty supply

  • @tipsyzine Thank you !

How amazing is this nail from #YoungNails? She used Young Nails sequins and foil embedded in liquid & powder to create this look. We love their online education on YouTube, @gmansalo always has the best energy and techniques. #BowDown 🙌 #AmericasBeautyShow

Nail tips from #AmericasBeautyShow : @Nailgirl11 is demoing @nsinails's new UV/LED design gel and we are hooked! It's so thin, has good coverage and won't chip or peel like acrylic paint.
