Autumn Copper Foil Nail Art Design Tutorial

Autumn Copper Foil Nail Art Design Tutorial

We’re going to do an Autumn style nail now
where we’re going to encapsulate some copper foil. We’ve already placed the form on and this
nail’s already primed and prepped, so if you’re not sure how to do those parts
then look back at those videos now. We’re going to start by picking up a bead
of brown and creating our free edge with it. Nice and thin because the colour is just there
for design and not for strength Turn your brush round and using the tip of
your brush, blend down slightly, Just using the tip of your brush just to feather
it. Belly of your brush to press it all down so
that it’s nice and thin. Then we’re going to pick up come gold glitter, it’s going to go over the nail and over the
brown. Tip of the brush to feather that gold up. Tip of the brush to feather it down. Don’t forget to keep your eye on those side
walls because we are sculpting. We’re then going to pick up a bit of the copper
foil just with a little bit of liquid on our brush, and place it on the nail. Press it down using the tip of your brush. Now we’re going to cap this whole nail in
our pink acrylic. Don’t forget when you’re doing your zone three
to tilt your client’s finger down a little bit so the acrylic doesn’t run down to the
cuticle. Check the thickness of your free edge and if you need to apply a little bit more,
you can apply it in a reverse method. Check those side walls. Now we can wait for this nail to set before
we pinch it. Don’t forget depending on your environment
will depend on how quickly your acrylic sets. If you’re in a cool room it will take a bit
longer, if you’re in a warm room it will set faster. Place your pinching tool on, on to the clients
side walls you can then let go. This nail’s now set so we can take our pinching
tool off and release the form. Pressing underneath until it comes away from
the nail and then make sure that you go down. This nail’s now ready to file. We’re going to do a little bit of hand-painting
on the top of this nail to turn the copper leaf into leaves. So we need the surface of the nail to be smooth, so we’re going to white block. and then you can remove your dust. We want the black lines to be really thin so
make sure you add lots of water to your paint to make sure you get nice thin lines. So small amounts of paint on your brush, outline the leaf and then put some veins into
it. We’re going to finish it off with a little
swirl right at the top. Wait for your paint to to dry and the we’re
going to finish off with a gel top coat. Then you can put your client’s hand into the
lamp for two minutes. We’re just going to apply a small amount of
cuticle oil and massage it in and that nail’s finished.
