We visited Young Nails HQ! Tracey Reierson, director of education at Young Nails, shows a complete manicure on NAILS executive editor Beth Livesay and guides us through her thought process when a new client walks through the door. She shows how to remove gel-polish with an electric file, a three-color glitter press technique, and nail stamping tips. This set is also featured on the Young Nails YouTube Channel in vlog #49, featuring an ombre nail with stamping on top: http://www.nailsmag.com/video/119910/mermaid-nail-art-at-young-nails-headquarters
Ann Chang, educator for Kupa Inc. and host of The Nail Tips Show, demonstrates how to remove soak-off gel-polish using an electric nail file (the KUPA Mani Pro Passport E-File) and a 3-in-1 medium bit (a tapered bit with a small barrel, large barrel, and rounded like a safety bit, all in one). She also uses a medium sanding band to finish filing off the product.
The Nail Hub's Elizabeth Morris shows the fundamentals of what you need to know about the "Russian" Manicure. Aggressive and improper techniques are possible with any piece of equipment so get knowledgeable, get educated, and get responsible no matter what methods you choose.
This is the first video and the beginning of a series on how to use an e-file. Follow along on my blog to watch the journey unfold, perhaps learning along with me as I go. Advice and education are welcome!
So you bought some bits but you're not sure how to take care of them. The Nail Hub's Elizabeth Morris shows you exactly how to prevent cutting your client, how to properly clean your bits, and how to get longevity out of your bit collection.
