Acrylic nails at technology of sculptural building become strong, durable and look naturally. Due to the emergence of new means for nail extension it is convenient and easy to work with them. It is the most difficult to seize this method of creation of artificial nails, but if you have mastered it, you will have various opportunities. From acrylic it is possible to create tips of nails, to change their ugly form and to strengthen weak nails.
Acrylic nails turn out as a result of compound of liquid monomer (likvid) and polymeric powder. This process consists of several stages. On the first monomer interacts with powder. Additives are released, and there is "swelling" or "melting". Then polymerization begins, and the structure reminds more gel with which it is easy to work. The stage of hardening takes, as a rule, from 3 to 10 minutes. Then the nail becomes rather firm that it could be filed (if on it to knock – the poshchelkivaniye will be distributed). Then it hardens finally, but on it several hours leave. Therefore, making independently the procedure of building, be very accurate , at this time, that not to break it!
As soon as you have applied product on nail, it hardens, the structure dries. If liquid and powder to subject to influence not enough high temperatures – there can be crystallization. In most cases add stabilizers to liquid monomer to avoid crystallization or sell together with special additive which is called the monomer amplifier.
Materials for nail extension:
Besides usual desktop for manicure, you will need the following: three flat jars for work, brush from sable hair for causing structure, stick for cuticle, primer or the acrylic gluing structure disinfecting solution, acrylic powder (transparent, white and pink), acrylic liquid monomer, the instruction of the producer, forms for nails, nail files and polishing bars, basis under varnish, varnish – fixer and color nail varnish.
Step 1. Preparation of nail for building - the independent procedure
Prepare nail, having carefully removed all traces of cuticle from plate, and then carry out dehydration.
Step 2. Form - business not only taste
File free edge of nail, having given it the form.
Step 3. Keratin and polymer - the correct connection
Apply one layer of acrylic glue or primer on natural nail that it was easier for keratin to connect to polymer.
Step 4. To attach form basis for nail extension
Attach the chosen form to nail, be convinced that it approaches. During further work the form has to keep strong. If you use reusable form, put on it finger-tip so that the free edge of nail came on it and strong kept. If you take disposable forms, separate one from paper and bend so that she repeated natural camber of finger. Paste to finger on each side, check that it strong kept under nail and was flush with natural nail.
Step 5. Technology of nail extension - monomer plus polymer
In different glass containers or jars pour liquid (monomer) and fill powder (polymer). If you use two-color method, three containers will be required: one for white powder for nail tip, the second – for transparent, corporal or pink, the third – for acrylic liquid, it is filled on three quarters. Dip brush into liquid so that in hairs there is no air bubble left. Then take out it and surely press to edge of container to wring out surplus of monomer. Accurately blot brush with paper towel.
Step 6. To define independently amount of powder for the increased nail
Carefully dip brush tip in white powder and, slightly turning, carry out by it on the surface of polymer. Gather so much powder how many the brush will be able to hold. Powder has to be so much how many to be necessary for you for one false nail. Liquid and powder have to react – do not hurry. Take out brush from the second container.
Step 7. Acrylic balls
Place the turned-out acrylic ball in the center of form for nail in that place where on it the free edge of natural nail comes to an end (on "the line of smile"). When the ball settles – on it several seconds will leave, - you can begin work. Accurately knead and press weight to form of the central part of brush. From time to time wipe it about paper towel to remove surplus of acrylic.
Step 8. How to create nail - we increase in parallel
You watch that sidelines were parallel and continue to form nail. Easy contacts create nail of more natural look. If you use two-color method, then the line of natural free edge should be created by means of white powder that the type of the French manicure has turned out.
Step 9. Pink acrylic powder - the second ball
Create the second acrylic ball by means of pink acrylic powder.
Place the second acrylic ball in the center of natural nail near the line of free edge.
Step 10. Thin layer of acrylic - subtlety of technology of nail extension
Distribute acrylic weight on nail towards sidewalls the easy tapping contacts of brush. You watch that acrylic has laid down thin layer.
Step 11. The third acrylic ball
Place the third acrylic ball on area of cuticle.
Step 12. That nails looked naturally
Distribute ball on nail. Carry out by brush along nail towards edge to smooth all imperfections. That nails looked naturally, acrylic layer at cuticle, along sidewalls and at free edge has to be very thin.
Step 13. Signal to end
Knock on nails with the non-working end of brush to hear the characteristic clicking sound. It demonstrates that nails have dried.
Step 14. We delete forms
As soon as nails finally dry, remove forms.
Step 15. Polish - independently by means of nail file with average grain - making technologies of nail extension
By means of emery nail file with average grain give to nails the form and polish them that the surface became smooth.
Step 16. ... and oil droplet
Put basis layer under varnish, two layers of color varnish (at will) and varnish-fixer layer. At last, apply oil droplet for cuticle on each nail.
Both for the professional, and for the beginner performing the procedure of nail extension independently it is the most difficult to achieve the correct consistence of product. True ratio of liquid and powder very important for creation of strong, durable and flexible false nails which will not separate from natural. Otherwise, they can peel off or break. Surely precisely follow the instruction of the producer as the ratio of components changes depending on the brand. Never mix components of means for nail extension independently as the system of catalysts of different brands can not match, and other additives will not work together.
