Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, we are going to sort of revisit the vintage Rose nail but we’re gonna put a twist on it and do it a little bit different because we have some new bits and bobs and I thought that’d be nice. So, let’s give it a go. I’ve not done this before. I am warning you. Be kind. So, I’m gonna use some intense pink. So, that’s our transparent pink, but it is intense, so it’s got a lot of pigment in it, even though it’s transparent. I’m gonna use this first of all to adhere some metal pieces onto this nail. Now, these metal pieces have a slight curve to them, so they will fit the nail nicely. Adam: How come you’re not doing the background colour first? Kirsty: It all will be revealed. Adam: I’ll just shut up. Kirsty: Yeah, you just shut up,Adam? You clearly have no idea what I’m doing. Adam: That’s just the norm, isn’t it? Kirsty: Yeah. Kirsty: Just making sure that is adhered. It’s adhered there and we’re gonna do one here. This is gonna be a different shape, so we’re gonna use this for our leaf shape. What I will do, I will use these little metal pieces as a border, kind of framing the design. Gonna have another one here. I’m doing it in this way because I feel like it looks nice running down the nail. It keeps everything nice and streamlined. It looks more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. So, you only need a small amount of acrylic, just to sort of secure those onto the nail. Gonna put that powder away. We do need it later though. Now we are going to use mega white. I do like this wheel one, there’s lots of beautiful… Adam: Number One. Kirsty: Mm-hmm! I do like it. It’s loaded with bits and bobs on there we can use with all sorts of things. Now, this is the tricky part. I’m using high speed liquid very, very small beads and I’m going to create a rose in the centre of this circle or oval. Now, this is going to resemble like a cameo or a brooch, you know, brooch cameo. Adam: I thought like a cameo was when somebody is in a film. Kirsty: That’s because you’re a film producer. When you’re creating something so small, you know, you do, it needs to have not a lot of liquid on your brush when you’re picking up the beads. We do need a small 3D brush. We’re coming to the middle now. So, my brush will get a little bit more upright, the angle of my brush will change as I come to the centre. That’s gonna give you a better angle with your petals. So, that’s the rose done and now we’re going to do the leaves. We’re gonna use a craft knife And I’ll use that to mark out the sort of vines And it’s kind of framing the leaf. I love these little gold pieces. I’m just gonna use this knife to cut in those little vines. Not vines, the veins, aren’t they? Veins! Ain’t a vine what Tarzan swings on? Then we’re gonna do one here. Right! Now, we’ve done that, you’re gonna get the intense pink. Forgot what it was called for a minute then. You’re gonna pick up a bead of that and you’re gonna go straight over that rose just like we do with the vintage rose. And what you want to do is make sure you go over metal Adam: Why over the metal? Kirsty: Because when we do this next part, you don’t want to put the acrylic over the metal. The coloured acrylic, that I’m gonna use. We’re gonna do exactly the same with the leaves. I’m keeping it quite thin though, I’m not like going too thick with it. Not at this point. So, I think they’re done. Think this is probably the hardest part. Keeping everything the right shape, making sure you cover the gold. And I’m gonna do exactly the same with the leaves as well. What I’m going to use is raspberry blue, which has been making me sing in my head. [Kirsty singing] And I’m gonna get the colour and I’m gonna go right up to the shapes. So, you can see why I needed to cover the gold. Adam: Is it not gonna make it difficult to file, the fact that you’ve already put them on? Kirsty: No because it’ll be flat. Adam: Alright, so they’re not gonna be raised. Kirsty: Protruding
Adam: Ahh right. Kirsty: They’re not going to be protruding. Adam: Okay! Kirsty: Not at all, darling. So, I’m just using that as a colour and now I’m going to encapsulate the colour with clear. Are you following me? I know it’s a lot of steps to this one, but it’ll be worth it. you’re basically creating the structure now. We’re gonna build your apex and everything like that. Giving the nail strength now. So, once this is set, I’m gonna file it. I will use my e-file to file the tops of the roses and everything that we put inside. I’m just gonna remove the bulk with my e-file before I can file this. Now. I’m going to hand-file it, smooth it all out. I’m gonna go over it with the urban graffiti topcoat. And now we reveal the design. Gonna pop that into the lamp. So, you can see that they’re encased inside, but they’re not mummified. What’s it called when you like, is it when they freeze your body and you’re encased inside something? Kirsty: Cryo
Adam: Yeah! Kirsty: Something or other. I don’t know why made me think of that. I just do think of some strange things sometimes. Now, I would like to add a bit of bling to this. Or maybe not bling, maybe it’s just a metal bit. I thought i was gonna get shouted at then, Adams gonna go Adam: Did look at the time. Kirsty: Really?
Adam: Yeah! So, there you are guys! I hope you’ve enjoyed that video, bit of fun, encapsulated those roses and gave them a bit of a frame. Like, we can put them on the wall cause we’ve got a frame round ’em now. Don’t forget, check us out on Facebook and Instagram. All the products that I’ve used today will be listed below and I’ll see you in the next video. Bye bye! Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, we are going to do a rose.
