Beauty Secrets Professional Sculptured Nail Kit Instructions

By Siobhan Higgins

Gray hair hints at a person's level of maturity, but nothing shows age like unkempt hands and fingernails. A beautiful set of nails adds not only to self-esteem but also to a professional, well-groomed and youthful look. One way to achieve picture-perfect nails is to apply sculptured nail enhancements such as those in the Beauty Secrets Professional Sculptured Nail Kit. Allow 45 to 60 minutes for application of a full set of sculptured nails.

Well-groomed fingernails speak for you.

Step 1

Sanitize hands and fingernails with Gel Guard Skin Sanitizer. Allow them to dry.

Prepare your nails before applying sculpted nails.

Shape nails with the curved cushion board, smoothing any rough edges. Lightly etch surface of nail plate.

Step 3

Apply Prep B4 to all nails. Allow product to dry.

Step 4

Fit a nail form underneath the free edge of a fingernail. Press and apply the wings of the form to the sides of the finger for stability.

Primer etches the nailbed to receive the acrylic application.

Apply nail primer to the fingernail.

Step 6

Dip the acrylic brush into the nail liquid.

Step 7

Touch the tip of the brush into the nail powder, forming a ball.

Step 8

Place the acrylic ball at the end of the fingernail and onto the nail form. Pull and pat the product with the brush to the length you desire.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 6 and 7. Place the acrylic ball near the cuticle. Pat and spread the acrylic bead to the left side, then to the right side of the nail, stroking the product to the end of the nail tip.

Step 10

Remove the nail form.

Step 11

Repeat Steps 4 through 10 on other fingers.

Step 12

Remove the top layer of acrylic from all nails with the rough side of the cushion board. Shape the nails.

Cushion board with fine grit produces a smooth finish on acrylic nails.

Buff the surface and sides of all acrylic nails with the smooth side of the cushion board.
