Nail Transformation on 14 year old Gamer Girl

This nail design is a nail transformation of my 14 year old daughter. She’s a violinist and a gamer. And typically doesn’t get her nails done. She keeps her nails pretty short so we didn’t want to do anything too crazy. We decided to try out the new Orchid Chrome on her nails.

Products Used:

Cuticle Clean Bit
100/180 grit Nail Files
Nail Drill
Medium/Fine Buffer Block
Base Gel Polish
Poochiez Nails Super Shine gel topcoat 
Orchid Chrome Powder
48W Sun UV/LED Nail Lamp
Cuticle Rose Oil

Orchid Chrome Powder on Natural Nails

I start off by using a cuticle pusher to gently push back her cuticles.

Next I using my nail drill on a low speed and the cuticle clean bit, I remove any remaining dead skin from the nails. This step is crucial because this allows the polish to last longer.

I then use a fine buffer block to remove the shine from the nails.

Gel Base Polish

Next I apply a coat of gel base coat to each nail and cure in my nail lamp for 60 seconds.

Then I apply the no wipe gel top coat. I’m using the Poochiez Nails Gel Top coat. No wipe top coat just means that there is no tacky layer once it’s cured. These are the type of gel top coats that are needed for chrome powder applications.

After curing the top coat for 60 seconds, I use a makeup applicator sponge to rub on the chrome powder.

Once the chrome powder is applied I lightly dust of the excess powder and seal in the powder with a finally layer of gel top coat.

After curing in the nail lamp for 60 seconds I used an alcohol wipe to remove the excess chrome powder.

Chrome Powder can definitely be used on natural nails. I love how this turned out!

Natural Looking Acrylic Nails | Pink Nude Nails – LongHairPrettyNails

Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Pink Nude Nails. I have always done long acrylic nails with crazy designs; from extra bling to in your face 3D acrylic. Don’t get me wrong, I love my long nails but sometimes you get have to change things up a bit. I know many people can’t wear those kind of nails on the everyday basis due to work. So I would like to share this work friendly natural looking acrylic nail design.Natural Looking Acrylic Nails

This acrylic set is what you would call an acrylic overlay. I didn’t use any tips or nail forms. I started this set with bare nails. I prepped my nails using my e-file and the cuticle clean bit from Todac USA. I love this nail drill bit. It is a must for your nails. I love how quick and easy it get rid of the dead skin around the cuticle area. I use to have an issue with my acrylic nail enhancements lifting and could never figure out why. I thought I was doing everything right when it came to acrylic nail prep. However, I noticed that the dead skin around the cuticle area and on the nail plate is hard to see without “agitating” it first by using a nail file or cuticle pusher.Natural Looking Acrylic Nails

After prepping the nail with the cuticle clean bit, I take my hand file on the 180 grit side lightly buff the surface of each nail to remove any shine. This step is important because it lightly etches the surface of the nails which give the acrylic better adhesion. Next I take a makeup sponge soaked in acetone and wipe each nail. I like to use acetone as my dehydrator. The acetone removes any oils from the nail and technically dries it out. Once again, this step is essential for maximum acrylic adhesion. Then I applied the No Lift Nails Primer. Natural Looking Acrylic NailsNatural Looking Acrylic Nails

I then applied the cover nude acrylic. This acrylic is a great cover pink color. I purchased this from @nunis_nails from Instagram over a year ago. Unfortunately, he doesn’t sell it any more. I am on the look out for a great cover pink acrylic so feel free to leave your suggestions below. I used my petite macaroon #10 kolinsky acrylic brush from Exclusive Nail Couture to apply the acrylic. This is one of my favorite brushes because it gives me great control when apply acrylic. Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Natural Looking Acrylic Nails

After all the acrylic is placed and set I shaped the nails using my e-file and my large cone it from Todac USA. This bit is perfect for shaping the nail and making the cuticle area flush all in one step. I did my final shaping with my hand file. Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Natural Looking Acrylic Nails

Once the nails are all shaped, I applied my favorite gel top coat, the Poochiez Nailz Super Shine Gel top coat. Before I cured, I applied gold nail stubs from Todac USA. Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Natural Looking Acrylic Nails Natural Looking Acrylic Nails

Finally I cured the nails in my Christrio LED nail lamp for 60 seconds. And this is the finished look! A nice, classy nail design that is perfect for work. It still shows that some glam without being over the top. What do you all think about this nail design? Would this be a nail design that you would rock to the office?
