Artistic Putty Provides Perfect Mix

by NAILS Staff | February 22, 2018

Artistic Nail Design’s Putty is pre-mixed for the perfect working consistency. Without monomer, odors, or mixing ratios, the formula lets you work as fast or as long as you want. Tube dispensing allows you to use just what you need without wasting product. The product’s putty-like viscosity ensures smooth and flawless nails. The formulation combines acrylic powder for strength in a gel base with photo initiators, providing workability. The filings are heavier than acrylic and hard gel filings, which means virtually no airborne dust. Putty can be used to sculpt nails or as a tip or natural nail overlay.
