So the next tip electric nail file drill bit uses, this is probably one of the most important things that you can do when you’re applying the gel tips since they come pre shaped of course they’re not going to be shaped in the exact shape of everyone’s no bed so you want to customize that is super duper duper important so what I mean by customizing so this is the nail tip, I’m gonna be applying to my thumb when I put this nail tip on not sure if you can tell, but right over here in the corner, it’s a little bit extended beyond where my cubicle is so some people just apply it just like that, and then you can tell that the tip is a little bit too big what I like to do is take a hand file and shape this to fit my nail bed exactly, so you just want to take a file, and you want to remove as much as are electric nail files bad for your nails.I’m tip is you need to just so that its shape to kind of fit your nail shape, better, um, that way, it doesn’t look like a like a press on a that was my number one thing when I first started wearing me I didn’t want them to look like a person, so I always kind of customize it especially around where it’s gonna be epic cuticle and see how it looks a little bit better, it’s not you know overlapping to where the skin is so you want to do that with all of the tips before you apply them just shape them to fit your nail now, this is definitely an extra step and I know people like to apply these tips because they’re easy to apply, but if you want the end product to look as good as possible, you definitely don’t want to skip this step so there that looks like it’s gonna fit perfectly so yeah I’m gonna do this to all of my tips and then I’ll be back alright, so now that we’ve got the tips.Shaped to fit our cuticle next step is gonna be to take away the shine and etch the inside of the tips, you’re just gonna take your e file or whatever you’re going to use and you just want to rough up the surface of the inside of the tip where it’s gonna come in contact with your nail, so fetch the inside of all of the nail tips, it should look something like this and we’re gonna go ahead and move on to preparing our nails for application, so in today’s video, I’m gonna be using the gel ish system, the tips, I’m going to be using are from Amazon I don’t know if I show those but the cam software tips, I’ve been using for a really long time, these are really great tips really inexpensive and I pick these up or order, these from Amazon, so those are the things I’m using to apply that I’ll be using the gel ish system and it’s got a ph bond a foundation and then they top it off or top coat. So, um, you can also add a primer to this, if you like I do suggest using primers but I find that when I use this system and just use the ph bond that came with the kit that I get a really good application, so that’s the only thing that I’m gonna use but feel free to use a primer if you need to use one, so this I’m just gonna apply onto all of my nails and allow it to dry, you don’t want to skip a bond or or dehydrate or or primer, you need to apply at least one of those in my opinion, that really helps with the longevity of the nails because I’ve worn these nails for over a month before, and none of them came off popped off slid off none of that so my application is pretty or prep, rather is pretty good in my opinion, so once you’ve done that then you’re gonna go ahead and apply the foundation, so when you’re applying.Foundation to your natural nail you want to make sure the layer is as thin as possible, you don’t want to put a thick layer of this on on to your natural nail so I’m gonna go ahead and apply the foundation to my nails, and this one works really well I also like the one that comes with the upgrade kit that foundation I think it’s called the extent gel that works really well but I’m gonna have to say that this one is probably probably my favorite probably because I’ve been using this one the longest but yeah you want to just apply thin layers just like that, I’m gonna do that to all my nails, then cure my lamp before I believe it sixty seconds alright so we are now ready to go ahead and start applying these tips I’m gonna be using the beatles Joe polish lamp little flash cure lamp I like this one I do have the cure skyline.I’ve also got the lamp that comes with the gel acts appraise system, but I just like to use this lamp for the flash caring process, so I’ve got that out, so when you’re applying your tips, you’re gonna apply the jail to the area that you fetched earlier, you don’t want to apply too much gel because it’s gonna seep out you don’t want to apply too little because then, um you’re more prone to having air bubbles and not enough coverage, honestly there is no way to know how much to apply it without actually just practicing and knowing you know what amount you need inside of your tips, um, that’s the only tip I can give in terms of how much gel to apply, um I just coat the entire edge portion and then scrape the brush off and leave a little bit at the top of here and that’s just what I do when it comes to applying the tips, so you want to make sure that you. Squeeze out any air bubbles before you cure because once it’s cured, it’s cured, um so you want to make sure pressing firmly so that all the air bubbles come out, that’s probably the most important thing when it comes to the application of the tips or the adherence of the tips is to make sure you’re not you don’t have a ton of air bubbles, so when I apply the gel I literally just apply a layer, it’s not thin, it’s not thick either, but like I said that’s just something that you’re gonna have to practice on because, there’s no way for me to kind of tell you how much jail to put in there so once I’ve coded it want to make sure everything is coded I take a little bit of the product that’s left on the brush and kind of scrub it off onto the back of the tip like that, and that’s usually the Mac that I go where the route I go when it comes to applying the tips so.Gonna go ahead and turn my little lamp on you want to apply this right up to the tip or to the cuticle and then push down and you want to make sure there aren’t any air bubbles in there then you want to slide that into your lamp, and I know this is like an awkward position, but the way my tripod is set up, it’s hard to kind of get in there so yeah so does it look like there are any air bubbles in there so I’m gonna flash cure that for usually about ten seconds, how long I flash here and then once I flash cure for ten seconds, then I just move on, so that is what that looks like a there’s a little bit of excess glue that came out down here and just a little bit that came out of here, but I don’t have any air bubbles in that so that’s good.Alright, so we’re gonna move on to the rest of the tips.Yeah.Alright, so I’ve got all of my tips apply and as you can see there are no air bubbles, so I do have a little bit of spillage or seepage, I’m on a few of the nails, but that is definitely easier to remedy than having air bubbles, so this was a pretty good application, um, so after I flash cured all of the nails I do cure them for the full amount of time in my larger lamps, so that is what I’m gonna do now alright so we are fully cured, and that is what we are looking like at this point, so I’m just gonna go ahead and clip these down because I want them to be a lot shorter than what they are so I’m going to clip them down to about right there.So yeah, that looks to be pretty good, I’m gonna do like a medium length kind of coffin shaped today, um, these are coffin shaped meals, but once you start taking away the length, they’ve kind of become more square than anything so I’m gonna go ahead and shape these I’m actually gonna take a little bit more off with this one okay, so for shaping I like to use a straight edge toenail clipper, so what I’m gonna do is just take off a little bit on both sides like so. And that is your coffin shape simple, so I’m gonna do that to all of the nails and then we will move on to the next step alright, so we’ve got all of the nails click down and I’m just gonna shape, these with my hand file, I’m after clipping them, this process is actually a lot easier because you don’t have much to do other than kind of you know sharpen the sides and tips, so that is what I’m gonna do like simple as that to get a nice coffin shape, so I’m gonna do that on the rest of the nails alright so we’ve got our nails shaped how we want them a nice kind of medium length, coffin shape, so thanks we’re gonna move on to another important part of the process that I like to do so, the areas where we’ve got excess jail that kind of seeped out.Get rid of that, we’re also gonna go around the cuticle’s to kind of make the tips more flush at the cuticle area, so to do that you’ve got a couple of options I like to use the e file so that is what I’m gonna do today, I’ll be using this bit right here, I’m not sure what that’s called but this is the bit that I’m gonna use today to clean up the excess gel that leaked out and to kind of go around the cuticle area to make that more flush you can however also use a bit like this, I’ve used these before you can use a bit like this because I think this is actually meant for the cuticle and you can use a bit like this one and this is the one I normally use, but this is a new one and I can’t you.Use this one because it’s got a little, um, a little spur on it I guess you can call it so when I use this one it kind of makes my skin because there’s a spur on that, but yeah one of those type of type of bits can get really close to the Kyoto area and help kind of remove the excess gel that’s there so that’s what we’re getting ready to do now. Alright, so as you can see I’ve gone around the snail in all of the gel that had seeped out all of that’s gone and the Kyoto area is kind of more flesh, I’m so it looks a little bit more natural, I’m just gonna go through and do that to the rest of the tips, so this one here has quite a bit of the gel that seats out, I’m gonna show you how that looks before I clean that up and then what it looks like afterwards.Yeah.Alright, so done with that and that makes a world of difference with these tips you probably can’t tell right now but you should be able to, but that makes a world of difference, if you can do that your kids will look so much more natural or sculpted as opposed to looking like you know press on personnel that makes a really big difference, so the next step is going to be to remove the shine from the tips you do not want to polish over shiny tips I think I’m just gonna use a buffing block whenever, I can find one yes, so I’m just gonna use a buffing block and I’m just gonna take away the shine on all the nails and I’ll be back alright guys so that is pretty much it as far as like the tip application goes I’m gonna go ahead and polish my nails what they knew.Color and this is going to be the pink jetlag vintage nude which looks like that this is a super pretty color I just want nude nails so that is how they look.They look really good, um, you can also I’ve got somewhere the jail kind of seeped underneath the tip there, if you want, you can take a file arm starting a bit like this one and you can go underneath the nails to kind of move that I don’t really care to do so but that can just take it just a step further, if you want to do that to kind of make them look a little bit neater as far as underneath the nail goes I don’t really mind that so I’m just gonna go ahead and get into polishing my nails, I’m gonna apply two coats of this colour called vintage nude now normally I apply base coat I’m since I’m just doing nude nails I’m not doing any glitter or anything, I’m just gonna go straight in with the um Joe polish, you can definitely apply base coat, if you want to um sometimes even apply the foundation just to make them.Feels a little bit thicker but not gonna go for all of that this time so I’m just gonna apply this nude color which is super pretty and we’re gonna do two coats of that and we will be done with our nails. Okay so I’ve got two coats of the pink Jack polish on I’m gonna finish this up with the jellyfish top it off alright so we are done, you guys I’ve applied all of my nail polish I’m gonna go ahead and apply this gel ish and nourish cuticle oil, cuz my cuticle’s whenever I do my meals, they just go through it so I’m gonna apply this to all of our cubicles.And then rub that and of course this is the finished product.
