How to chose your perfect cover pink for acrylic nails?

Toffee Fudge
1) Always match the skin tone* of the client/person having the nails done:

Medium/Olive = Natural Beige or Warm Beige

Dark = Warm Beige or Toffee Fudge

Pale/Fair = Natural Beige or Baby Blossom

2) See if you have warm or cool undertones to your skin pigment, as this will effect how the colour acrylic you choose will look on your nails.

When you see yellow, orange, or olive undertones and veins that appear slightly greener than blue, you’re seeing indicators of warm undertones. Cool undertones will exude a bluish, purple, red, or pink sheen.

            Cool undertones = Pink colours

            Warm undertones =  Beige colours

*A trick is to look at the lightest part of their body. Where the veins meet along the inner wrist is the perfect place to reference. It’s also a great idea to compare skin tone to the person sitting next to you.

REMEMBER: What’s great about acrylic colours is that the rules are more forgiving than those for other beauty products. Nails are fairly removed from the face and they’re generally small canvases. Where certain colors when worn on the face, like eye shadow or lipstick, can make a person look sallow or tired, there’s a lot more freedom when it comes to nails!

Our 3 different types of Acrylic Liquids

 Max Adhesion:

  • Setting speed* = 2 minutes
  • You don't need to use a Primer.

High Speed:

  • Setting speed* =  a little LESS than 2 minutes
  • Good for doing 3D nail art.

Medium Speed:

  • Setting speed* = a little MORE than 2 minutes
  • Recommended for beginners as it takes longer to dry i.e it will give you more time to apply and sculpt the acrylic.

None of them are odorless, but we have been told the maximum adhesion has a more pleasant odor.

  * Setting speed will depend on the temperature of the room used in. A warmer room will give a faster drying time.
