How do I apply dried flowers?

Answer

 

The most common way to apply real dried flowers is to encapsulate them in acrylic or gel. This technique will allow your client to enjoy them much longer. However, if the flowers are pressed really flat, it is possible to adhere them with top coat and apply another coat over the top to protect them. Be very careful to not saturate them with too much monomer (if encapsulated) or too many strokes of top coat. The liquids will cause the delicate petals to become somewhat transparent.  — Elaine Watson is global education director and VP of marketing and sales for Star Nail Products.

How Do I Learn Nail Art If No One Is Available to Teach Me?

I am an apprentice in a natural nail salon. Sometimes I get requests for nail art. I would love to learn how to do different nail designs, but I am a beginner. I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
