Hello my geeks! Just wanted to share a design technique that my clients are DYING over this fall. I like to call it "branding" but essentially it is a fingerprint.

I've done this in subtle metallic and a stark black. Very sexy looks either way. You can do it in SO MANY ways. Application is as follows.

1. PEP
2. Apply chosen Shellac color (white is my favorite but red looked hot too)
3. Dust your (or preferably your clients if you worry about identity theft... It is an issue these days lol) finger with pigment powder getting a good coverage but kind of knocking off any excess. The finger should look completely covered.
4. Firmly press the finger to the shellac rolling it on the nail if more coverage is needed.
5. Lift finger
6. Repeat steps 2-4 on each finger.
7. Top coat & cure 2 minutes (Remove pigment from covered finger with CLEAN alcohol soaked pads until all traces of pigment are removed)
8. Remove sticky.

As stated earlier you can do so many different combinations with this look and my ladies are loving it. Enjoy!! ImageUploadedBySalonGeek1377866126.973791.jpg
