What are "liquid stones" on the nails
The technique of liquid stones allows you to imitate the inlay of nails with natural stones: pearls, malachite, amber, turquoise, emeralds, sapphires, rubies. They were called "liquid" because the master of the nail service independently forms them from liquid gel, and does not use ready-made stones, pearls or rhinestones. The technique is suitable for decorating natural nails coated with gel polish, as well as artificial gel or acrylic nails. By mixing stained glass gels, a master can recreate any gem, with all its tints and play of light. This technique looks especially sophisticated in combination with the casting technique, which makes the manicure especially effective.
How liquid stones are applied to nails
First, a layer of colored gel is applied to the place of the future stone, which is sent for 15 seconds under a UV lamp to fix it. On top of the first layer, a special liquid polymer is applied, which is also sent to dry under a UV lamp for 15 seconds. Next, a thick layer of a thick topcoat (sculptural gel) is applied to the liquid nail stones, which creates a magnifying glass effect and gives the stone a natural convex shape. The sculpting gel is also cured under a UV lamp for 15 seconds. At the last stage, a single-phase gel is applied to the surface of the stone. After polymerization of the single phase gel, the stylish design is ready.
Liquid stones complement well the various types of extensions that are already loved by modern women of fashion, such as stiletto, pipe, gothic almonds. The master can create on the tips of women's fingers unique ensembles of stones, resembling graceful pendants or rich necklaces in shape, frame them with small rhinestones or imitation brocade.
