How to Apply Fiberglass or Silk Wrap Nails
- First select the tips for your client’s nails and apply.
- Do a preliminary shaping of the nail with an emery board.
- Apply the Artisan Equalizer Nail Prep Agent to the nail bed.
- Apply the Artisan FlexWrap Base Resin ONLY to the nail bed.
- Sprinkle the Artisan FlexWrap Crystal Clear Dipping Powder over the entire nail. Tap off any excess.
- Using the Artisan FlexWrap Finish Resin, blend the powder into the nail with the topcoat.
- The Artisan Nail Wrap Resin Activator is a spray that causes resin to harden quickly. All you need is a one solid spray 6-8 inches away from the nail.
- While the nail is still damp, take either the silk or fiberglass, snap open and apply to the nail. It is better to undersize the fiber. Do not touch the silk or fiberglass. Trim away the excess strip from the free edge.
- Seal the application with the Artisan Nail Wrap Brush On Resin. It is a thicker viscosity that will create strength and will allow the china silk to bond and adhere.
- Give the nail another spray of the activator to seal the application. Do not over spray the activator.
- Apply a second layer of the brush on resin and then again, spray the activator over the nail.
- Once the nails have cured, do a final shaping of the nail. Use a buffing block to blend the nail and cuticle but make sure to do this lightly.
- Depending on the length your client desires, you can either polish the nail or just apply a glossy topcoat. Try using the Artisan FlexWrap Glaze Sealer to finish off the gorgeous silk nails.
- Apply cuticle oil to the nail to rehydrate the nail.
At the end of the fiberglass or silk wrap nails application, your client will be left with amazing and durable nails. The nails are so natural looking; your salon will be the talk of the town!
