Manicure with kamifubuki
New Year's fireworks have not yet completely died down, but I already want to extend this festive atmosphere as long as possible. And for this, manicure with kamifubuki is the best fit. Read the article to find out what it is! :)
Even as a child, we learned that not a single New Year's party is complete without confetti. Therefore, it is not surprising that some time ago, beauty industry technologists were inspired by this atmosphere and created a m and f u b u k for nail design.
What is kamifubuki?
The name "kamifubuki", as you probably guessed, came to us from the East, namely from Japan, and it denotes bright pieces of rice paper that are used as confetti at various celebrations.
In the case of a professional dictionary of manicure masters, kamifubuki are small multi-colored discs of various sizes made of polymer film or foil. It's flexible, thin and doesn't create excessive volume, so it's convenient to apply on nails, regardless of their shape. Due to its flexibility, kamifubuki easily follow the curves of the nail.
I love kamifubuki manicure for its simplicity in working with it, and you can achieve a simply amazing effect.
This confetti manicure is perfect for any festive event, and can also brighten up the atmosphere of any ordinary day - just look at your beautiful nails! :)
How to make a manicure with kamifubuki
- Start with a solid base. Even if you plan to cover the entire base of the nail with confetti, thanks to the uniformity of the coating, you will be able to see the gaps and shortcomings in the application of kamifubuki (if any, of course), and fix it while the varnish is still wet.
- Apply a coat of any nail polish that doesn't dry very quickly. You will need to work with slightly damp nails for better contact of the kamifubuki with the nail plate. Regular nail polish is also suitable for such a manicure, but for longer wear, I advise you to still take gel polish as a basis.
- In the next step, take the confetti with a special tool, or tweezers, and place these on the wet nail polish, and press lightly.
- When the nail polish is completely dry, apply 2 thick coats of top coat. If the top coat is not thick enough, more than 2 coats may be required.
One of the basic rules for working with kamifubuki is to correctly place the confetti on the nails, so that after covering with two layers of top, the nail is absolutely smooth and there are no sharp edges to the touch. Indeed, if there are any sharp edges, it is likely that soon your confetti will simply disappear. :(
For the most festive effect, place confetti randomly on each nail. You can even have the confetti overlap slightly. As I have already noted, due to its thinness and flexibility, kamifubuki is an excellent material for creating beauty on your hands. :) In general, ideally, it should be like you just threw confetti around and these got on your nails!
Applications with kamifubuki on nails can be both simple and concise, and “bumpy”, it all depends on your preferences. You don't have to completely cover your nails with kamifubuki, this design is great for just accentuating desired fingers as it will easily accentuate different color combinations.
Moreover, nails will look advantageous even with a minimum amount of kamifubuki.
So you can pair this nail design with any outfit in your wardrobe. Kamifubuki manicure will look dazzling with both a girly cocktail dress and a sophisticated evening gown.
And look how interesting such a manicure looks against the backdrop of an invariable attribute of most New Year and Christmas parties - a glass of champagne! :)
It is not difficult to make a manicure with kamifubuki in Kiev, many masters provide such a service, and of course, I am your faithful assistant and friend! :) Summing up all of the above, I want to note that there is no need to wait for the New Year or Christmas, because with such a manicure you can arrange a holiday for yourself every day! :)
