Tonight I have a fun little nail art assistant that is completely new to the Color4Nails shop. Crystalline Nail Veil! This is a multi-purpose nail product. Makes for easy polish clean up when water-marbling, stamping and doing gradients. The unique nail striper brush also works great to make crisp lines for nail art. Works as a “veil” to protect your skin from polish without the drying effects of cleaning up with pure acetone.
I don’t do a ton of nail art and part of that is the fact that I’m artistically challenged and the other part is that clean up can be a real PITA.
To show you this new product I did a simple, subtle gradient!
Here is the bottle. It’s a taller, skinnier bottle that was still large enough that holding it was easy
The brush is a little long, on the thinner side but easier to control. I was able to make a thin, precise line around my nail polish base (you can also apply before the base) and then I brushed a little more on the surrounding skin to make sure I covered a large enough area. This didn’t take too long and was quite easy.
When you apply the Crystalline Nail Veil, it will be a vibrant yellow shade. It takes about a full minute to completely dry.
Once dry it is a darker yellow, which is how you will know it’s dry.
Then I went to town using my sponge and did a simple, subtle gradient.
Of course if you do a water marble or a messier nail art task in general, you will want to cover more area. As you can see – I’m not overly messy with gradients so this covered the right amount for me.
It’s subtle, so I wanted to show an undone nail next to my gradient to show I really did one. It came out much more obvious in my mind…
Now it’s time to peel off the Crystalline Nail Veil…
This is what I was left with. Removal was incredibly simple. I just used an orange stick to gently lift an edge of the Nail Veil and then used tweezers to pull away. The little lump of yellow above is what I removed.
And done. No other cleanup and it was incredibly simple to use!
I’m hoping to have a little more time soon so I can use Crystalline Nail Veil to do a water marble with.
For those with Latex Allergies – I do not recommend this product because it contains latex!
There is a latex smell to it as well, for obvious reasons but I didn’t find it offputting or that strong (unless my sniffer is really broken). While applying it, I noticed the latex scent but it wasn’t bad.
Price: $6.00 for 8ml bottle

I’m definitely going to be using this a lot more, which hopefully means you’ll see more nail art from me in the future (even if it is simpler nail art!)
