How to Create a Smoked Effect with Gel Polish – Nail Tutorial


Hi. I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, I’m going to show you how to do a quick and simple design
using gel polish. We’re gonna do a smoked nail.
I’ve got a nail created already using the cameo pink.
I’m gonna go straight on with the black
So, we’ve got black, urban graffiti gel polish. Have you seen how amazing this black is?
Maybe that’s not the right black. That’s metallic black. Good though it is,
Good thing is we’re going to be using the urban graffiti colour. Black, seriously black! I’m telling you. It’s so black
It’s unbelievable. It’s blacker than black. Blacker than black. It’s blacker than the iPhone black, jet black
You know, I think we can get away with one coat of this. I’ve done a nice thin layer, but just look how black that is.
Oh, I love it!
Pop in the lamp
In my little dish, I put some gel residue wipe off solution. It’s not gin. And then we have white,
snow white, Pop a bit of your white, a bit of white now. So, you’re going to get your gel residue wipe off solution
You can put a bit of that on there. And then, what you’re gonna do is mix some of the white into it
and what you get is, I’ll show you only here… I got the dip! You see?
You get some smoke. And that’s what you’re gonna do on the nail.
So you want to mix it. You don’t want it to be any stronger than that, because if it’s too strong, it’ll be too white
You want it to have that faded smoke effect. So, that one is a no, that one is a yes, that one is a yes!
now i’m just gonna pull it from the centre out

Put that smoke effect
Cure that in the lamp for me, JJ
Once that’s cured, we’re going to seal that in, seal all the smoke in. Poor nail! There’s smoke inhalation
Did I even say that loud?
Adam: Yeah, sure
Kirsty: Pop me that into the lamp
I’m gonna put a bit of bling on. But if you look at it, it’s crazy because, you start to see things
Oh, my God! I can see a face
Kirsty: You see a face here. That looks like a face.
Oh, my God! I can see a face
Kirsty: You see a face here. That looks like a face. I need to point it out
Can you see a face, huh? Oh my God! And it looks like a man with a bent leg
What can you see?
Adam: I don’t know
Kirsty: It’s like when you look at clouds, and they’re all like, you start seeing things
Kirsty:and then, within a few seconds, it change or something
JJ: Yeah, like that
Kirsty:and then, within a few seconds, it change or something
I’m gonna put a little bit of mega gloss in this corner here, on this tiny nail. I don’t think you really understand
how tiny JJ’s little finger is. We don’t do many designs on JJ’s little finger because it’s so small
and I’m like no, no! We’re not using that finger, but today we have. I’m gonna put some stones on.
Adam: Even the stones look massive
Kirsty: I know! They are tiny
JJ:You did the banksy when i am on that finger.
Kirsty: Did I?
Adam: Yeah, you did them all, all five
JJ: Was it a love heart
So, we’ve got some smoky stones and some AB stones just to make it a little bit more bling bling
and I might actually just add because I like a bit of bling and random stone dotted about
I’m just putting that directly on top of the mega gloss. Now we’re talking!
I’m gonna finish off with some lemon cuticle oil
Oh yeah!That’s smoking. It’s smoking because it has smoke on it,
but it’s also smoking because it’s bling bling-tastic
