MĀORI NAIL FOILS - KĪ TAURANGI - RED
The design concept for this set was inspired by the Tino Rangatiratanga flag. Created following the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi (The Treaty of Waitangi), it is now a national symbol of Māori independence and sovereignty.
The colours of the national Māori flag represent the three realms:
- Te Korekore, potential being (black)
- Te Whai Ao, coming into being (red)
- Te Ao Mārama, the realm of being and light (white)
Our Kī Taurangi design also incorporates these colours, but uses only part of the symbolic koru (signifying renewal of life and new beginnings), including some koru elements that are only outlined, in acknowledgement that Kī Taurangi (promise, guarantee, vow, oath) is yet to be honoured in its entirety.
To make recreating our demo design super easy, we've popped all the extras you’ll need into a matching Set of Sparkles.
The Kī Taurangi Set of Sparkles includes:
- 10 x SS10 Swarovski Crystal
- Kī Taurangi Sample Size Nail Transfer Tattoos in white
Each foil sheet includes 12 Professional Nail Foils (37mm long).
Handmade with love in Aotearoa
Our Nail Foils have been specifically designed for professional use. To achieve a flawless transfer, they require a UV cured gel layer to adhere to.
Nail foils are a product many nail technicians will already be familiar with. Our products work exactly the same way as regular nail foils.
For a next level DIY mani, check out our Nail Transfer Tattoo range. These can be applied at home with regular nail polish.
HOW TO APPLY
1. Apply an even coat of your favourite Foil Gel over cured gel polish or enhancements. Cure. Allow to cool for at least 20 seconds.
2. Cut selected design from transfer film and place onto nail (colour side facing up).
3. Rub firmly over the entire design, starting from the centre and working your way outwards.
4. Slowly peel back the film. If any areas were missed, simply press the film back into place and rub again to transfer remaining foil.
5. Optional: gently buff the free edge and cap with acid-free primer. Highly recommended for full cover designs.
