The hottest nail trend of 2013 is texture, and there are several ways to play up nails with special effects, pairing Cuccio Colour Precious Metals matte collection and Cuccio Nail Solutions High Gloss Top Coat. Here’s how to achieve the look:
1. Apply a base coat of Cuccio Nail Solution Base Coat.
2. Apply two coats of your favourite Cuccio Precious Metals colour. Allow to dry for a minute or two, for the matte effect to appear.
3. Add the contrasting texture effect using Cuccio Nail Solutions High Gloss Top Coat. Swipe on a French edge, or randomly place dots on the nail. “For more precise designs, any striping or detail brush used with the Cuccio Nail Solutions High Gloss Top Coat will give you more control to create in-depth designs,” says Elaine Watson, Cuccio VP of marketing and sales. Remember not to coat the entire colour with the top coat, otherwise it will cover over the matte effect.
