This is a step-by-step video tutorial of three nail designs using Mia Secret's Chrome Mirror nail liquid.
Chrome Vintage Effect: Just prep the nail, sculpt the structure, shape and buff. Then create the 3-D gel design using Formagel Clear Builder Gel and apply Chrome Mirror over the surface and 3-D. Notice how the 3-D design has a mirror effect and the surface, which was buffed, has a vintage/metallic effect. File sidewalls and tip after applying Chrome Mirror, apply UV Finish Gel Ultra Shine and cure for 45 seconds in an LED nail light.
Gelux & Chrome Mirror: With this technique, we’re going to create a beautiful nail design with Gelux and Chrome Mirror. Start prepping the nail, sculpt the structure, shape and buff. Once done, apply a thin coat of Gelux soak-off gel polish, using liquid monomer and #4 Premiere nail brush, remark the French line. Cure and clean the tacky layer; if necessary apply the second coat. Sculpt the 3-D nail art with Formagel White builder gel, cure and clean the tacky layer. Then apply Chrome Mirror only over the 3-D nail art and once it’s dry, remark the design with liquid monomer and #4 Premiere nail brush. You don’t need to file sidewalls and tip in this technique, because Chrome Mirror is only on the middle of the nail plate. Then apply UV Finish Gel Ultra Shine and cure for 45 seconds in an LED nail light.
Chromed Color: Start prepping the nail, sculpt the structure, shape and buff, apply Luxury UV base coat, cure and clean tacky layer. Now draw the 3-D nail-art using Formagel White builder gel, cure every certain time while drawing and when done, clean the tacky layer. Apply two thin coats of Chrome Mirror and let it dry, apply Tint nail polish and then file sidewalls and tip. Now apply UV Finish Gel Ultra Shine and cure.
