Well, I've had one of those nights/days .... you know, the ones where nobody listens ......

And what I've done to combat the idiots is to do another nail video.

Using a new technique in foaming cuticle exfoiliators, which are esily removed with your basic prep/dehydrator.

The video is quite long (it's 16 mins), I remixed the music myself and did a set of nails using my new "Define" well-less tips on a nail biter using "Illume Acrylic" and an all new pressure set adhesive "Neobond".

The "Define tips don't taper like other well-less tips (making you fill in the sides to give a decent shape).

Not all new products come from American companies.

My model is dark skinned, which only emphasises how bad her nails were to start with, it will take a while to download (because it's so detailed, with no trickery).

I haven't seen a video demonstrating well-less tips, the ones I use are pretty fabulous, with really great straight sidewalls.

You will notice that I don't touch the natural nail with a file at all (not even to remove the surface shine, buff in the tip, nor remove the shine from the plastic tip).

My prep "Hydrofresh" will not crack tips.

This is an amazing new product developed in Australia to combat damage to the natural nail.

It shows "MY METHOD", using a flat brush, patting, pulling, then using the brush backwards to create a perfect apex with no effort at all.

No pre-shaping, no buffing off the nail surface and what most people refer to as "line of light" shows in my application, which is again reflected in the final product.

All buffers and files are guaranteed to be 50% cheaper than the ones you are using now

I don't use models with perfect nailplates like many demonstration videos .....(thats not what walks through the door).

I wanted to show a realistic client, with realistic results.

I hope you enjoy the clip (be patient, as it will take a while to load).

Don't you wish you were in Australia right now ? ....

Welcome to the revolution

Thanks Carl.

So - is there no buffing of the natural nail because of the product you use or that you dont feel that buffing is needed full stop. And - the cuticle remover method you use of foaming the product - is it down to how you foam with the brush or is a specific cuticle remover needed to do this?


Ta very much.

It's a new product line, using new technology, the cuticle remover and it's ingredients are exclusive to "Illume"

Always great to watch a professional at work.
I even loved the music this time!!:lol:

I take it that since you speak so highly of Hawley products that the longevity of the products is great too?

I think Perfector Plank...is the best name ever for a file!!!
Thanks for posting the vid.

I have enjoyed watching and feel inspired by the videos on your web site it looks like a fab product.
I love your little aluminum spray oil bottle can I ask if it is a dispenser you fill yourself or is the product sold in the aluminum bottle? I`ve not seen any that small over here.

Thanks for sharing. :)
