How to remove gels and more tips from nail genius Sylvie Macmillan

TextDazed Beauty

The creative appears in conversation with artist @sagg_napoli for the latest instalment of Dazed Beauty Space x Selfridges programming

ICYMI, last month we launched Dazed Beauty Space in Selfridges – an exciting pop-up that looked ahead to the subcultures that might appear in the next 100 years of beauty as well as featuring a guest edit of products pushing beauty into a new era, curated by editor Nellie Eden. That’s without even mentioning the exciting roster of programming featuring the likes of make-up artists Lucy Bridge, and Ana Tak, and many more.

With the current state of the world at the mercy of coronavirus, we sadly could not bring the programming to the IRL, we’re doing one better and taking it URL. Following on from Lucy Bridge – who transformed friend and designer Charles Jeffrey into a Baroque Dystopian fantasy – the next tutorial comes courtesy of nail extraordinaire Sylvie Macmillan

Appearing in conversation with artist @sagg_napoli – who is currently in isolation in Italy – Macmillan wanted to impart some of her knowledge while giving you real tips that you can utilise if your nail salon is closed. Want to know how to remove your gel nails? Sylvie takes you through a step-by-step guide using just tinfoil, acetone, and a chopstick. Elsewhere, she discusses her fave nail look she’s ever created, mastering acrylics, how nails can help you become the fantasy you want. 

Head over to @theofficialselfridges to watch the full video and stay tuned on @dazedbeauty for more tutorials as part of the Dazed Beauty Space x Selfridges.
