To start, her nails were wiped down with acetone, her cuticles were pushed back, the free edge of her nails were clipped, and the nail plates were etched. On this set, I started filming as I was etching her right hand. I went on to size her for tips and apply the tips with nail glue. I blended the tips and clipped the sides for a narrow coffin shape. I ended with dehydrating and priming the nails.
I applied the pink and glitter acrylics to the respective nails. I capped all the nails in clear acrylic except for the pinky and thumb nails. I went on to even out my acrylic canvas with the 80 grit side of my file. I reshaped and flattened the tip of the nails with the 100 grit side. After the filing and shaping was done, I went over the clear nails with a medium grit bit to make the clarity of higher quality. I then buffed and proceeded to apply the Swarovski crystals with the jewelry gel. I also added a nail piercing onto this set which was not filmed. I top-coated the nails and made sure to seal in the corners of my stones with the topcoat.
