How to fix rhinestones on nails
Many girls, to be honest, and we, the craftsmen, are delighted with various designs with rhinestones. Therefore, today I propose to discuss the topic how to properly fix rhinestones on nails.
The problem that many manicure masters, especially beginners, face is not knowing how to properly glue rhinestones on nails. Because of this, even the most beautiful manicure design with crystals pleases its hostesses for only a few days at best. I decided to put an end to your torment, and tell you in detail how to stick manicure stones.
First of all, it should be said that it is best to fix rhinestones with plastic materials with strong adhesive properties. This is consistent with the rubber base or top. Many masters agree that the adhesive properties of the base are better than those of the top. And this is actually true, but the main role still belongs to the qualitative consolidation. Therefore, special attention should be paid to technology.
For comfortable work, I advise you to choose a thick material so that the rhinestones do not "float away". You will especially notice the difference when fixing heavy large rhinestones - it will be unrealistic to hold them in place with a liquid material before drying in a lamp.
If it comes to curly rhinestones, then here you need to give preference to especially thicker material.
For the same reason, to fix massive rhinestones, acrylic powder can also be added to the thick gel. As a result, we will get a substance similar to sticky plasticine, on which it will be quite convenient to sculpt rhinestones. Such a gel will not be particularly plastic, but it will help to keep large stones on the nails.
In general, we can say that with an increase in the size of the rhinestones, instead of gel polish, you can switch to the side of the gel for building. It also holds crystals well, but using it to fix small rhinestones on nails is not particularly justified.
To consolidate the success we will, traditionally, top. Or rather, for additional fixation, you can fix it with what you planted, however, for beauty, the last "word" should still be behind the top. It is convenient to fix small crystals with a liquid top, which will flow into the gaps between strasses and create additional fixation. I advise you to give preference to tops without a sticky layer.
If we use large rhinestones for the design, the most important action will be to build a border around the crystal, such that the stone does not catch on anything and it is impossible to pick it up. For this, thicker tops are suitable for us.
The trick that many masters resort to in an attempt to save manicure time, and which is actually a mistake, is to plant rhinestones on an undried top layer applied to the entire nail plate. Of course, you will hold the rhinestones this way, but you can forget about the perfect glare of the coating.
Another option for fixing rhinestones on nails is to use gel paste. The advantage of this material is that the paste is quite thick and dries well even with volume.
Apply impromptu "beads" of paste the size of rhinestones that you plan to glue, aim, and embed the crystal right in the middle to surround it with a voluminous bead of gel paste.
If the rhinestone is clasped by a side on all sides, you can additionally strengthen nothing; if you want to play it safe - you can additionally apply top.
As you already understood, applying rhinestones to nails is not an easy task. However, I hope that my advice will help you facilitate this process and give beauty to yourself or your clients. Be healthy and beautiful! :)
