Kirsty: Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, we are going to do a tutorial showing you how to create a cracked mirrored glass nail. It could be dangerous. So, we have the beautiful Andrea with her sausage fingers and today, and we are going to make them not look like sausage fingers no more.
So, we’re gonna sculpt this nail out and I’m gonna do like a ballerina shape. So yeah, we’ll do a ballerina. We’re gonna go to about…what number are we gonna go to, Andrea? Number three. And we’re going to dehydrate this nail now.
I’ve already removed the surface shine from this nail, so it’s been prepped and I’m going to put the Acid Based Primer on there. Let that disperse over the nail. I am going to use Medium Speed. Haven’t used that for ages.
Adam: Say you used it… Kirsty: Say it was sarcastic you were just gonna say. You’ve just used it. Adam: I couldn’t see your face, that what it was. Kirsty: Are you… Adam: I couldn’t see the sarcasm in your face.
Kirsty: I have this like, little obsession with things. So, we’ve got our Sculpting Form and then what we’ll need is bit of Tin Foil, and we’re gonna scrumple. Scrumple? Kirsty: That is not… Andrea: I like that.
Kirsty: …a word. Adam: It is. Andrea: No, but I like it. Adam: yeah, scrumple is a work. Kirsty: Scrumple, it’s screw and crumple all in the same… Kirsty: …sentence. Andrea: I think we should look at it.
Adam: Scrumple is definitely a word. Kirsty: Is it? Andrea: It isn’t. Adam: I’d say scrumple up. Kirsty: Scrumple up? Adam: Yeah. Andrea: Scrumple it up. Adam: It’s like if you scrumple up a bit of paper, yeah.
Adam: Scrumple it up and throw them in the bin. Andrea: Do you know what, I don’t even know but do we say screw it up? Kirsty: Screw it up? Andrea: Yeah. Kirsty: Duck! Andrea: Screw it up, duck. Kirsty: So yeah, it’s all screwed up.
Andrea: Scrumple sounds better Adam: it does Kirsty: I’m just gonna do another one. I just had an idea. Kirsty: Trying to see if I can get them more long. Adam: That’s more like twisting. Kirsty: Is that twisting? Adam: A little bit more.
Kirsty: Bit more twisted. Adam: Hmm! Kirsty: Am I overcomplicating? Adam: Yep. Kirsty: I do this all the time. What is wrong with me? Adam: You just like to mess about. Kirsty: But this is how magic happens.
Adam: I wish if you did the magic happens * off on camera. Kirsty: Which bit do we like better? Adam: I think the left hand. Kirsty: This one. Adam: Yeah. Adam: I don’t even know what you’re doing but.
.. Adam: Oh, Andrea! Look at that. You’ll have a tin foil nail. Andrea: Yeah. Kirsty: Check it out. Andrea: is it gonna be in it, in the acrylic? Kirsty: Ugh! See, she’s so confused. I love it when they get confused.
Kirsty: Alright! So, I’m gonna hold this and you see how I’m just scrumpling it around the nail. Adam: Hey, it seems like you need to glue that down a bit. Kirsty: No, I’m not gonna glue it down, I’ve got to hold it.
Adam: Why don’t you just shape it to the thing and glue it down? Kirsty: Because I don’t want to. Adam: Alright! Kirsty: Because it won’t work. Adam: I’m just worried it’s gonna move, that’s all. Kirsty: It won’t work if I do that, Adam.
Adam: I just thought it’s gonna move. Kirsty: It might move…it will move but I’m gonna hold it. I have two hands. One which I will hold and one which I will create. Okay! You could glue it down if you wanted to, if you really wanted to.
Adam: See? What I’m saying is, for me, I would have to glue it down because I’m not as dexterous. Kirsty: Awesome. Not as awesome. It’s fine. I know you’re not and I’m sorry. I just can’t help it. So, we’re gonna get Clear Acrylic now, make contact with the natural nail, press the acrylic into all those little wrinkles or scrumples.
So, create your length. You wanna make sure that you’re pressing the product into those little recesses. Gonna come on to that natural nail a little bit more and then drag this down, just so I know that I’ve got enough product on there.
Let it set a little bit. And once it’s set enough for you to pinch, we are going to pinch this nail. So, I’ve just done a little bit of pinching with the foil and it’s holding quite nice but just got to put the Pinching Tool on just to let it do its thing.
Check mwang I’m just gonna put a little bit of Natural Beige towards the back and blend that down. Just gonna put a little bit of Clear over the… I was gonna say Caramel Dream. It ain’t no Caramel Dream, it’s Natural Beige.
Just add a little bit of colour to that nail and we’re gonna let that completely set. You don’t need to pinch it again. Everything, all the pinching is done. We’ve pinched that nice base layer. So, I’m going to press on to take some of the foil off, but because we’ve wrinkled it so much what will happen is, some of the foil it will stay attached to the nail, especially because we’ve used very thin kitchen foil.
The cheapest kitchen foil is the best. It doesn’t work with that proper thick stuff because they’ll just peel out and you’ll have a different effect but we want some of the foil left in there. So, once you’ve peeled it off, I do want you to get like a toothbrush and go underneath and just.
.. it’ll just get rid of any of those little bits that maybe, well, still hanging off because you want a finish where there’s non-sticking up. You want all the all the pieces that are attached to stay attached, you don’t want them to eventually peel off.
But we will topcoat on there afterwards. We’re gonna file this now. So, as I’ve been filing around the cuticles, I have nicked Andrea a little bit on her skin. Now, Andrea’s skin is super thin. And I’ve only got a 180-grit file here.
This is quite soft. It’s not a brand new file, so it shouldn’t really cut her but Andrea’s skin is that delicate, it will get grazes quite easy. Andrea: If you look out beside… Kirsty: You’ve got all that skin.
Andrea: Yeah. Kirsty: Yeah. Like we said, you know, they’re like sausages. Andrea: Oh yeah. I suppose that is. It is, yeah. Kirsty: It’s hard to work around it… Andrea: Yeah. Kirsty: …so, I don’t think you can model anymore.
Kirsty: I’m only joking. I love doing Andrea’s nails. She’s a good model. So, filing this nail, making it a beautiful shape, apex sitting in the back third of the nail. What you wanna watch is make sure you don’t file too far through, you don’t want to file into those little recesses.
So, you always need to watch your filing and make sure you’re not creating yourself a problem. I can’t wait to see this when it’s got top coat on. We will add some bling to this nail as well. We’ve got plenty of videos showing you how to apply bling.
Let’s buff. Let’s dust underneath. Let’s get Adam’s toothbrush. Kirsty: It’s not Adam’s toothbursh, I am just joking. Adam: Well, it could have been. Kirsty: It could have been. Adam: It could have been my toothbrush but I opened the packet and gave you to use it.
Kirsty: Yeah, you did. Adam: And I used the other one. Kirsty: I’m gonna wipe over with Acetone. Oh, you can already see it. How cool is that? So, what we’re gonna do is, we’re gonna put stones here, just to add some bling and to cover that nail because I don’t want to see that nail.
Me no likey the natural nail. So, first we’re gonna topcoat underneath, which will make it look more glossy. It’s also gonna seal that bit of foil as well. Because we don’t want that to eventually start to wear away because that would ruin the effect.
Now I’m gonna topcoat. That looks so cool. Andrea: It does look really good. Kirsty: Yeah, pop that into the lamp. Kirsty: So, we’ve just finished off with some Cuticle Oil and looked at that. I love the depth that you get with it.
See the depth, it’s looks so cool, don’t it? There you are, guys. I hope you’ve enjoyed that video and everything I’ve used, apart from the tin foil, obviously, will be listed below. Don’t forget, check us out on Facebook and Instagram and I will see you in the next video.
So, please keep watching. Bye-bye! Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. Did I say that right? Adam: I think so, yeah.
