Nail the caviar mani with tips from ‘Tini Beauty Bar Master/Founder, Michelle Toma Olson:

  • Have the beads ready for application with jar open.
  • Place your hand on top of a clean paper plate.
  • After applying a base coat and/or your chosen polish, liberally douse your nails with the micro beads. Sprinkle the beads over your nail(s) until they are completely covered.
  • Use the residual beads that fall off the nails for your second hand, or pour the rest back into the jar.
  • Carefully press down on each nail to ensure the caviar beads stick to the nail polish. Make sure you use a clean dry finger pad when pushing beads into the nail polish.
  • When nails are completely dry, add one coat of top coat nail to seal your nails.

Glitter and Stains Be Gone! Removing Stains and Glitter from Nails

ImageWhat goes on nails,  eventually must come off. Removing dark shades can be tricky. Here are some tips from a member of ‘Tini Beauty’s Bar Staff, Celebrity Manicurist Elsbeth Schuetz.

Image

Never remove dark polish using a circular motion. It is best to press remover-soaked cotton square onto the nail plate. Press down for 5 seconds then press and pull in one direction out towards free edge (tip of the finger). Repeat if necessary.

Keep nails pristine with Club Soda Fizz from Nailtini, a unique Nail Whitening Soak that can be used to remove stains caused by tanning sprays, dark polishes, etc. It brightens, whitens and transforms nails into a clean canvas just begging to be painted. This is a great way to start over after wearing dark colors, or to prep for a French or pale colored manicure. Just pour two capfuls of the lime-scented powder into a bowl of water (more in a tub for toes) and fizz away stains and discolorations.

Use the smoothest side of your file to buff away tough stains then condition nail plate with Hot Buttered Rum Hand & Foot Cream. Massage a tiny amount of cream into each nail plate/bed.

To remove stubborn glitter, put one of our Nailtini Cocktail Napkins on each of your nails and wrap in foil. Leave on for at least 5 minutes, remove the foil, and use the cocktail napkin to remove the polish/glitter. Little pieces of felt soaked in nail polish remover are also great for removing glitter polishes.
