Product description

This is the well known and highly praised practice hand from "Red Iguana"! Made out of silicone with metal wires in the fingers that allow you to easily work with the hand and also put it in different poses for your pictures. For the hand you use tips that you easily insert under the cuticle zone or glue onto the nail bed. If you need more tips and different shapes, all our tips that we sell here in the shop is compatible with the hand. There are several ways to work with the hand, so please look through the text further down the product page for detailed instructions.

The hand comes in several different skin tones, is made out of 100% silicone and feels incredibly real both on the surface and in weight. Preferably used with our "holder" which will make the handling on the hand so much easier (NOTE! Not included in the hand)

PLEASE READ MORE DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT THE PRODUCT UNDER "How To Use"!

How to use + important information

READ THROUGH ALL INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER:

  • Holders are sold separately and are not included in the silicone hand.
  • All our tips on the webshop can be used for the hand.
  • Tips are not included when ordering the hand.
  • The hand can be used for nail art, acrylic and gel application.
  • 100% silicone, flexible and soft.
  • Poseable - The hand has metal wires in the fingers, which makes it possible to fix the fingers in the desired position. NOTE! Use carefully so that the metal wires do not break.
  • The hands are manufactured individually for each order and the production time is 8-10 days after our order is placed to the USA.

Tip sizes for each finger:

Little finger - 9
Ring finger - 5
Middle finger - 4
Index finger - 5
Thumb - 0

Note that each hand is handmade so that they can vary slightly from the images such as small bubbles, bumps or lines, slight difference in skin color, etc. The hands are ready to use and perfect for beginners, schools that need models (no more "model no-show" problems) and for nail techs or nail enthusiasts who want to play with nail art or practice on nail art techniques or record / shoot nail tutorials. The hands really feel like a real hand, which is perfect for practicing all sorts of techniques. It has delicate cuticles and sidewalls just like a real human being, so be careful not to cut them.

HOW TO USE THE HAND: Insert the tip into the cuticle pocket as deep as you can - the hand is ready to be used immediately. For example, you can practice nail art in this way. Just remove the tip from the cuticle pocket and add a new one when you are done. You can save the finished tips and attach them to your hand later if you wish (this can be seen in the product video here on this product page).

If you want to make the nail more stable, use Red Iguana's "Silicone Primer" and apply to the nail beds and then use the glue "Gorilla Glue Gel" which is available HERE (important that you use this glue!). Insert the tip into the pocket of the cuticle as deep as you can. Apply a small amount of glue between the tip and the silicone finger and gently push the tip down onto the nail bed. Hold for 30-60 seconds. Make sure to remove the excess glue if it runs out on the cuticles. Then let it dry for about 5-10 minutes, you are then ready to start using your hand again. This technique is perfect if you want to practice gel or acrylic application as you can file on the nail without it having it flying off the finger.

WATCH VIDEO HERE! - PRIMER + LIM

We recommend that you add a "safety layer" with for example gel on the tip so you don't accidentally file through the tip when it's time to remove the material (you remove the material just like your would with a real customer / person), but if you would rather like to soak the material (acrylic) off, give it enough time - the tip needs to be dissolved deeply under the cuticle zone (silicone does not dissolve in acetone). Repeat previous steps to attach new tips.

VIDEO - WITH OR WITHOUT FIXED TIPS?

If you accidentally damage the silicone hand, scratch the cuticle or the sides, you can fix it with "Devcon Silicone Adhesive" or "Sil-Poxy" by "Smooth-On". Just apply a small amount of glue to the damaged area and allow it to dry completely.

If your hand gets dirty from dust, glitter / chrome pigments etc., just wash it with a little bit of soap in warm water. You can use a soft brush to remove chrome and glitter / flakes.
