Silicone Practice Hand SET for Nail Art and Acrylic/Hard Gel Techniques hand made by April Ryan from Red Iguana
Available in 2 types:
Regular – 100% silicone, fully flexible and soft.
Poseable – Mostly silicone and has armature inside it which allows to fix finger in a desired pose.
After the initial launch for pre-ordering closes on the 16th October 2018, only the silicone hands with no nails, in predetermined colours will be stocked!!!
Please note that each hand is custom made so there could be slight difference from pictures: small bubbles,bumps or lines, slightly different skin colour.
These hands are ready to use and perfect for newbies, schools that need models (no more “model no show” problems) and for technicians who want to play with materials in free time.
Please note that hands are very similar to real hand which is ideal for mastering your skills. It has sensetive cuticles and sides. Do not cut it! It helps to hold nails on silicone.
ATTENTION: DON’T PLAY WITH THE FINGERS TOO MUCH, IT CAN BREAK THE WIRE INSIDE OF THE POSE ABLE HAND. Move fingers as if you would move real person fingers.
We do not recommend to soak of or rip off the nails from the hand.
Soaking off makes it hard to glue on a new nail. Ripping off may permanently damage the hand.
File off the material after work until base nail using e-file but don’t touch silicone with nail bit.Try to not file off base nail (exactly like with real person’s nails). Hand is ready to use again!
If you decided to soak off the material, give it enough time – the nail should dissolve deep under the cuticle zone.
For application of a new base nail – use Pink Diva Nail Supply Adhesives. WE ALSO RECOMMEND TO USE OUR PRIMER FOR SILICONE HAND. Apply thin layer of Red Iguana Primer for Silicone Hand and let it cure for 10 seconds. Apply a little amount of glue on a fake nail at the cuticle zone. Move it to cuticle at 45 degree angle, put it under the cuticle completely and gently press the nail to the nail bed. Hold for 30- 60 seconds. Make sure to remove excess glue if it appeared on the cuticle.
Let it cure for 5-10 minutes. After that you can start using hand again.
Silicone doesn’t dissolve in acetone.
If your hand gets dirty of dust, glitter/chrome etc., just wash it with soap in warm water. You can use soft brush to remove chrome and flakes.
You can use full cover acrylic tips. We are using full cover ballerina acrylic tips for natural effect in the pictures.
If you accidentally damage silicone hand, rip cuticle or sides, you can fix it using Devcon Silicone Adhesive or Sil-Poxy by Smooth-On. Just apply small amount of adhesive on the damaged area and let it dry completely.
If you want change nail art without filing and soaking off use Peel-Off base or Full cover nail tips and Glue Tabs
