fimo- whats fimo? fimo nail art




What is fimo?  I get asked this question a lot, so i wanted to do a short blog on it,
 fimo is a clay rolled into very small sticks. these sticks are then cut up in to small slices,
each one is different, once cut they can be applied to the nail with nail glue or just placed in wet polish.
some people put them in glitter mixes, fimo also can be placed in gel that needs to cure in uv or led,
you can order fimo in slices or in sticks, there are many places to order them.
 so here is a few pics showing how to cut fimo and place on the nail with just wet polish,

so you need to take your razor blade and slice the fimo in to thin slices 
pardon my fuzzy fingers it just cotton but here is a good slice of the fimo 
then you need to apply a topcoat to your nail 
then place your fimo on the nail in the wet topcoat, if the fimo starts to curl or bend  use a pair of tweezers or a toothpick and hold it down on the nail for a min 

 then apply top coat again , and let dry  


this is  what it should look like, 
fimo can be used for many thing other then just nail art , if you would like to order fimo  check out ebay, 
aliexpress is another good place
