How to Create a Sugared Sailboat

Hi, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In
this video, I’m going to show you how to do a cute little sailboat using the sugared
effect. So we’ve got the polka dot design already done on this nail, but we’re going
to take it further and add a little sailing boat. If you want to see the video of how
to create this design, if you go to the descriptions, you’ll see the link there. So what we’re
going to do, we’re going to do a sanding effect. For that we’ll need some Mega Gloss,
I’m just going to pop some of that onto the pallet. Because it’s got a nice thick
consistency it’s really easy to do this with. And then we’ve also got Neptune Infinity
Super Fine Glitter. It’s a nice, gorgeous navy, that is. So with the Mega Gloss, use
your detailing brush. And we’re going to do a very simple sailing boat. So we’ve got one sail there. It’s hard to see, I know. And we have another sail here. And a little flag on the top. And then we’ve got the actual boat at the bottom. Just checking that. Then, with the Super Fine Glitter, we’re going to sprinkle that over the top, tap off
the excess. Add any more if you need to. Then we can pop that into the lamp for one minute. So I’m just going to finish with a little bit of cuticle oil. Rub that round. So you’ve
got that sugared effect little sail boat on your dotted nail.

  1. That is fantastic! One question, however: how are you able to see the mega gloss design on top of the finished nail? Doesn't it blend in?

  2. Could u do a video or explain how to prevent air bubbles in the acrylic. I clean my brush etc but still get very tiny bubbles. ( beginner here ) many thanks.

  3. I love your designs Kirsty. You're so bloody talented. You have such a steady hand. By the way, I love that ring on your finger. 😉

  4. so cute! I really want to become a nail technician so I have been watching all your videos helps a lot the only downside is wanted to buy your product but it's 20$ for shipping that sucks 🙁

  5. I don't understand one thing… why do you need to use mega gloss to outline the design? couldn't you use another navy blue gel color to help you see the design better? I love your designs and keep up the amazing work!!!

  6. I love all your designs and your explanations are just ace. Was wondering if you could do a video on keeping equipment clean? Like what to use to keep brushes from going hard etc, ThanQ
