Finally got his hands to the water manicure. Water manicure is another rather complicated type of manicure, which requires a lot of time, good varnishes and straight hands.
So, what we need:
1. Capacity with a small area of water surface (I have a stack).
2. Good white lacquer base.
3. Several high-quality bright liquid varnishes creamy texture, which are well combined with each other.
4. Scotch and scissors.
6. Wadded disks, ZHDSL, orange sticks, drying and other utility.
Paint your nails white. It will serve as a backdrop for the primary colors. Since the lacquer film on the water is very thin and even transparent, it can be lost on a bare nail. White color will help her to reveal in all its glory.
We glue the fingers over the tape, leaving a gap of 1-2 mm wide between the fingernail and the finger.
Pour warm water into a pile. Do not pour it out of place, because some water will displace your finger.
Open all the working varnishes and drip the first color in the middle of the pile. At first, the drop lies on the surface of the water in a puddle, but then spreads into a thin film up to the very walls of the container.
As soon as the puddle began to spread, you can drip a second color, and then a third. You can drip as long as you like, but my lacquer film immediately hardened on the surface of the water, so I had to hurry – I had time to make only 3-4 drops in different colors.
We take a needle and draw beautiful squiggles on the surface of the varnish.
We choose the place where we got a beautiful picture, place the nail above the water parallel to its surface and slowly and evenly lower it into the water.
Now you can breathe out, because the previous three stages took about 15 seconds. When your finger, wrapped in adhesive tape, was under water, do not rush to pull it out – first remove the remaining varnish film from the surface of the water. They look like this:
The first nail is ready! Now you need to pour the water out of the pile, wipe it with a cotton pad with WDNS, and refill it. If you make several nails one by one, without changing the water, then thin particles of varnish, which it is simply impossible to catch, will spoil your varnish coat.
After all the nails are done, you need to carefully remove the adhesive tape, wipe away what fell into the millimeter gap between the adhesive tape and the nail, and cover everything with top and drying. Finger Tape:
What can I say about this manicure
Beautiful, yes. A ton of HDL, a bunch of cotton pads, a stained table, and more than an hour. In addition, I did everything in a hurry to keep up with the rapidly drying varnish. I don’t even know if it’s worth it. But such a manicure will look very beautiful on anonymous nails as an accent: it is interesting, and not so difficult and long.
