DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH FREEHAND NAIL ART OR FOIL APPLICATION? CHECK OUT TEAM MAGPIES TOP FOIL TIPS & INSPIRING SETS BELOW ❤︎
Torties have taken over the nail industry this year. It’s a gorgeous style but can be time consuming and tricky for techs to master. Thanks to one of Magpie’s latest foil releases, DONATELLO, tortoise shell has never been so easy! Brand Ambassador Jess Kemp @jessrosebeauty takes us step by step through her simply stunning torties:
❤︎ Paint base of FULL FOILED – cure 120 seconds.
❤︎ Apply 2 coats of BROWN JELLIE – cure 60 seconds in between each layer.
❤︎ Randomly splodge BLACK BETTY on top – cure 60 seconds.
❤︎ TOP COAT – cure 60 seconds.
First Mandy painted a base of BMU BUFF then COME WHAT MAY curing for 60 seconds in between each layer. Then used JUNGLE JANE to create lines down the centre of nail using the STRIPER BRUSH, cured, and wiped away the tacky layer with PREP & DEHYDRATE. Next she went over the green lines with FULL FOILED, cured and applied KAA. Mandy mixed NOVEMBER glitter with GMS clear and faded with the striper brush, cured, and capped whole design in clear GMS. Finally she applied TOP IT OFF to finish.
❤︎ Apply 2 layers of JAZZY JO – cure 60 seconds each layer.
❤︎ Wipe over the nail with PREP & DEHYDRATE to remove tacky layer from colour.
❤︎ Create random circular shapes on the nail for the base of your leopard print with FULL FOILED – cure 120 seconds.
❤︎ Apply 1 even layer of GMS clear to entire nail – cure 60 seconds.
Brand Ambassador Adelina Walker @hellobeautifulnailbar stuns with her vintage design. Adelina used a base of NUDE JUDE, then applied random stickers from sheets 082, 102, 097, 099 on a cleansed surface using PREP & DEHYDRATE. To encapsulate the stickers she used GMS clear. Then painted FULL FOILED in sections and after a 120 second cure she applied MILO and PRINCE foils. Encapsulation is key to long lasting layered designs, so GMS clear was used again straight after. To add some chrome details, Adelina used BLACK GEL PAINT, STRIPER BRUSH, SILICONE TOOL & SOFT DUSTER BRUSH. To finish Adelina topped with LIKE A DIAMOND in a generous layer.
