This book introduces you to the many types of designs you can create with sculptured nails. Although this book assumes some familiarity with sculpting a nail enhancement, here is the essential information you need to create a design sculptured nail.
Before you embark on creating a fabulous design sculptured nail, read on to learn about all the items needed to put it together. Invest in the best materials and tools you can afford to achieve professional results.
You can sculpt a nail using the acrylic (liquid and power) medium and/or by using gel (UV light cured) medium.
Both the acrylic and gel mediums on the market today offer an array of colors and glitters which is essential in creating design sculptured nails.
Most importantly is that if you are using an acrylic product, you will need to ensure that the monomer does not contain Methyl Methacrylate (MMA). Each product has strengths and weaknesses and what might be considered a weakness in one instance can be a strength in another. The best product for you is the one that best achieve your desired outcome for you and your customer.

    Color is a key element in design to bring out the best in your work. Many nail students tell me that one of their greatest challenge is designing with color. Some people have a built-in color sense; others have developed it over time, while beginners can use a color wheel to make the best possible choices. Understanding the relationships between colors will help you determine which colors work well together.

    The Color Wheel
         Starting with the three primary colors red, yellow and blue you will learn to mix and create beautiful colors for designed sculptured nails

    Complimentary Color
       When complementary colors are mixed together in different amounts, the gradually neutralize to brown.

  • Monochromatic

  • Split Complementary
  • Analogous
