Traditional manicure for solemn events is considered too restrained and not effective enough. For festive decoration, acrylic nail modeling is better suited, allowing you to create beautiful and voluminous compositions that will perfectly harmonize with the image and emphasize the chosen outfit. In addition, each ornament in such nail art is unique.
What do you need for design and acrylic modeling on nails?
The work requires special tools and materials:
- round natural brush with a sharp tip;
- cup or stack for monomeric liquid;
- acrylic powder of different colors;
- monomer (liquid).
For additional decoration of nail art, you can stock up on acrylic paints, a thin brush, various decorations, sparkles.
Acrylic modeling on nails for beginners
In the early stages of learning, it is better to practice simple design, which involves compositions of similar or monotonous elements.
Simple flower acrylic nail art step by step:
- Prepare the nail plate, degrease it. Dip the brush into the monomer and then into the acrylic powder. Place the material on the nail.
- Form a smooth smooth ball. Wait 10-15 seconds for the acrylic to begin to dry.
- Press the tip of the brush to the edge of the ball in the middle, press a little on it and pull it in the opposite direction, creating a petal.
- Slightly correct the contours of the stucco.
- Continue to form the pattern. You can lay out 2 acrylic balls at once.
- Complement the composition with flowers of other shades. Smooth gradient transitions look good. To do this, dip the brush with the monomer first in light, and then in dark powder.
- Perform modeling in the same way as in the previous paragraphs, pulling out the petals.
- Do the same for the leaves. You can slightly raise their edges above the plane of the nail, separating the dried area of stucco with a brush.
- Place a small contrasting acrylic ball in the center of the flower.
- Drilling movements of the brush to make a hole in it.
- Repeat steps for other colors.
- Glue beads, artificial stones or bouillons into the holes obtained. Decorate the manicure with painting and shimmer (optional).
- Practice sculpting flowers and leaves using different colors of powder and accessories.
It is important to wipe the working brush often during work; for this, it is worth preparing clean napkins in advance.
