Looking through photos "liquid stone" technologies, many girls want to begin training with the combined equipment. But masters suggest to experiment on lunar manicure where practically all nail plate has a bright shade, except a semicircle at the basis.
If the manicure for a festive event is planned, before the 8th step in the presented earlier basic equipment make a basis of a liquid stone by means of means "velvet sand". Thus the jewel in this option will appear on a velvet substrate.
The most graceful designs are created on nails of small length. About what the speech? First, the stone has to be present not on all, but only on one finger. Secondly, the size of a stone depends on nail length. Respectively, the it is shorter, the more small a stone. In this case the manicure becomes the true jeweler art.
