I’ve used Morgan Taylor Berry Contrary, Barry M Blackberry, China Glaze Sweet Hook, OPI Alpine Snow, dotting tool make up sponge and nail art brushes.

Acrylic application is actually a lot about the size brush you use. The brush sizes vary, usually in increments of 2. So 2, 4, 6, 8, 24! I’ve never seen a size 24 brush in person, but searching online has revealed that they do exist. Has anyone used that size? I’d love to get some nail tech chatter going about the preferred size, manufacturer, and shape of brush to apply acrylics!

Mastering acrylics hasn’t come to me yet. I imagine it will take lots of practice! I have laid a set on a friend in the salon though, and so far, they’re holding up! It’s been about a week. Here’s what they looked like after application and polishing was complete:

Fendi-inspired

Fendi 4

Ombré hair just recently had it’s moment (I just can’t seem to part with my ombréd dark blue locks), but has ombréd nails? I think not. This Fendi-inspired Ladyfinger is definitely a challenge, but the end result is totally worth it.

Dark edges

SecheCleverAndConfidentGradient003

 I started the gradient with 2 coats of Seche Happy, As Is – a vibrant raspberry red creme. I top coated with Seche Vite (of course) and then painted strips of  Wonderfully Witty – a rich navy creme, Clever and Confident – a deep plum creme and Happy, As Is in the middle on a makeup sponge. It took me about 4 times to get the coverage I wanted, and I’m sure the gradient would have popped more if I sponged over white but I wanted to test out the colors without the white base first.

More than likely you will only need one coat of the darkest nail polish. Again it is really important that there isn’t very much polish on your brush.  While you are waiting for your nails to dry, pour some nail polish remover into the top of the bottle and drop a cotton bud into it.

Black and White with Glit...

Day07 02

I used W7 Cosmic Black – a black jelly packed with Silver glitter – as a base. Then I took a sponge and used it to apply W7 Cosmic Mauve from the tips. Then I added some Wet n Wild White to the mix but because it’s not very opaque, it gave it a milky look. Finally I used a little more Cosmic Mauve right on the tips and used about 3 coats of NYC Top Coat to smooth things over!

Liquid Crystal Tips

I want to declare my love to Crushed Velvet from Diamond Cosmetics. It’s my fav dark purple creme, so smooth and dreamy… I love it to pieces! And with China Glaze – Liquid Crystal sponged on the tips I love it even more.

Glittery Gradient Nails

Apply a second coat of the glitter nail polish, this time starting halfway down the nail (roughly somewhere in between where the glitter color and the opaque color started) and going all the way to the tip. This will blend the glitter and the silver tips and help create a gradient effect.

Brrr…

Pretty & Polished Hybrid is a pale blue shimmer thermal that shifts to medium blue and then to purple when cold.  The formula was smooth and very easy to apply.  I absolutely love the triple shift in this one!   Shown is two coats of Hybrid.
