LADY
IN RED
The Artist:
Paola Ponce
Encourage clients to
go glam with colorful
metallic accents. When
working with charms,
Ponce recommends
using a clear builder gel
for maximum adhesion,
adding, "Have your client
tilt her finger while curing
in order to make sure the
light cures all of the gel."
Resin is also great for
attaching charms, she
says. "But," she adds,
"it's important to make
sure that you cure the
nail and buff and cleanse
the surface before you
apply it." Though the
application may be easy,
Ponce finds that charms
are prone to falling off
if they're not properly
adhered. "When applying
charms, do not leave any
of the edges exposed,
as your client may find it
uncomfortable and begin
picking at it," she says.
"Always give the charm
a little tug to ensure that
it has been properly
adhered to the nail."

CITY NIGHTS
The Artist: Reina Santos
Want to take a walk on the wild side this New Year's Eve? Spiked embellishments
can add a modern edge to even the most understated polish job. Santos urges
techs to use caution when working with studs, though, as the pointed tip can make
them difficult to apply. Santos uses a wax pencil to pick up the stud and resin for
maximum adhesion. "Resin can dry quickly depending on the temperature of the
room you're working in, so I always apply a tiny amount and work in small sections,"
she says. Then, she encases the studs in gel top coat to soften the pointed edges.
But use caution: "Applying too much gel top coat will take away from the 3-D
effect," she warns.

ART DECO BY DESIGN
The Artist: Yvett Garcia
When it comes to bling on New Year's Eve, the bigger the better. Inspired
by the decadent styles of the 1920s, the oversized gems found in this eyecatching set are not for the timid or accident-prone. To keep large gems on
the nail, Garcia uses gel designed for use with 3-D embellishments, instead
of a standard builder gel, to ensure staying power. "I also apply resin around
the stones for extra hold," she says. Garcia insists that strategic placement is
key when working with oversized gems, noting, "Always start with the bigger
stones, placing them in the center of the nail or near the cuticle, then work your
way out toward the free edge."
