Acrylic Nails

Endless Possibilities With Fabric

CND educator ambassador Marilyn Olemma Garcia of Caguas, Puerto Rico shows how with pre-made — and wild-styled — acrylic sculpts and pieces of fabric, she can create fun, funky, and artistic nails.

One of the great things about acrylic is that when it is layered with different colors or embedded with nail art materials, and then encased in clear acrylic, the finish file can perfectly blend the design together and create a flat surface with a 3-D illusion.

One of the experts in this is CND educator ambassador Marilyn Olemma Garcia of Caguas, Puerto Rico. Here she shows how with pre-made — and wild-styled — acrylic sculpts and pieces of fabric, she can create fun, funky, and artistic nails.   



Style 1  

1. Garcia makes these elongated designs away from the nail, by putting color gel into a sculpting form. Making these beforehand is essential in the salon to save you time during application.

2. Garcia places them over the extension.

3. She encases everything with clear acrylic and files the entire design to a smooth surface. Top with a little finishing touch of acrylic paint and some rhinestones.

 



Style 2  

1.  For this design, Garcia uses pieces of fabric cut into small pieces.

2. She makes a base layer of acrylic and then places the fabric on top with tweezers.

 

3. She encases the fabric designs in clear acrylic and finish files. She adds borders between the fabric using a striper brush and black polish.
