Music is that yummy is yummy Elizabeth from the nail hub hi guys today we've decided to join forces with a gel pro and an acrylic pro we're gonna talk about the differences let's get started so Liz and I were talking and she has told me that even though she's a gel expert she's never actually done a curling never so we thought we'd get together and play with acrylic we thought it'd be fun to sort of discuss the differences between gel and acrylic application from sculpting to the finishing so I have a friend to help us out today look at this I've been wanting to see one of these in person I went to a trade show and this company red iguana huh hmm put one aside so when I came by max's booth where she was stationed she gave me one mm-hmm so I've always wanted one I wasn't quite sure her where to get it she actually dipped her hand into a mold so this is actually this is April's hand yeah no I don't have her name's April yeah April no no yeah apron she knows everybody so she gave me this and it's her actually hand she has beautiful hands yes oh my gosh look at how long her fingers are no and how narrow and longer this is what nail technician is it like oh it's kind of weird you get to go with it Wow oh wow it's firm she put wire in it so you can bend it like a real hand oh my god that's so cool because it works like a little head I mean usually we get those little tips yeah so these really are in place of working on real hands they look like it and they feel like it so that's what we're gonna play with today that is so cool sure is I love it so the first step when we do nail is prepare the natural nail bite and basically with acrylic and gel you basically prepare it the same way you want to buff it all up you want to clean it you want to get rid of the cuticle and you prepare the nail for the adhesion of the product and we use a pH bonder and then you put some sort of primer or in gels case you put a base coat on and then the next step would be applying the product to the nail bed and that's what we're gonna start so I've got some product here got these Creole ink and I've got the monomer now brushes is where we sort of start that's where we differ right out the gate is our brushes so this would be a gel brush would you say yep looks like one kind of a big one yep that's a big one yeah so I'm always amazed because look at the size of acrylic brushes oh wow that's a size difference so what size would these be this would be about an eighth okay yeah and I think it's a really great size to start with when you're working so when you see this one what size would you call that probably us six you say sabia four okay and you say that's a bit bigger a little bit bigger just because it has kind of that cat tongue shape to it it's a little bit wider some people like to use a little bit thinner of a brush and a little bit longer so you get that kind of yellowy frosting the cake time only gotcha yeah I knew nothing about that now in gel brushes can you get all sorts of different shapes yes absolutely you can get round square pointy okay up so in acrylic brushes you can also get square and round and pointy and cat tongue and all that kind of stuff which is great I'm really partial to the oval I actually started my career on a square and used it for years and then I tried the oval with the point and I love it I haven't gone back I find the size quite alarmingly different so when I'm ever handed a gel brush I'm like oh yeah well I thought people use those acrylic brushes that are huge yeah looks like something you'd paint a wall with I got to do a video on that okay that's not really oh yeah there's a lot of reasons why a big brush is not recommended right but this seems like it would give you a lot of control it does and that's why I like the smaller brush especially for a student you're learning so six ornate when you're learning is great and ten is workable as well anything bigger than that is a little bit much okay okay so we're going to start I'm gonna put the gel brush down and I do like a cap now when you cleanse a gel brush it's very different you cleanse it with what just clear gel I never put alcohol acetone on my brushes see that's a good thing to know because as acrylic artists I always clean my brush with the monomer yeah which is great but if I have any problems I adieu clean it with acetone never ruins it and it won't one or two times so when I get the gel brush I want to clean it with a liquid like alcohol because that's what I'm used to doing yeah and your plan if you want but it's best to leave a little bit of on your brushes and just squeegee off the excess got sheets everything together that's a good tips the bristles from getting dried oh yeah so I'll discuss this now in case she does it when and if you get acrylic inside there and it hardens you want to get a little cup of acetone and
