How to hide default nails on mesh bodies:

Omega users: Results may vary! Visit the Omega website to check if the mesh body you’re using is on the compatibility list for nail appliers. Some mesh bodies come with Omega pre-installed, however you may need to purchase an Omega kit for others. Omega install kits can be purchased from the Omega Solutions main store.

Cosmetics

Add/Wear (Right Click -> Add) your LIVIA purchase to unpack it.  Inside the unpackaged folder, you’ll find the makeup HUD for your compatible mesh product.  Wear (Right click > Add) the HUD to attach it to your screen. Once it’s attached, click on your desired design to apply it.

Some LIVIA cosmetics sets come with a convenient button to clear the makeup layer.  But if not, use the HUD that came with your mesh head to clear the layers.

If the Omega HUD has DHA buttons below each design, click one of the buttons associated with each color to apply:

D (Default) | H (Hud Control) | A (All Layers)

Results will vary by product, but in most cases the D (Default) button should work fine.

Catwa users – Attach the main HUD that came with your Catwa head. Select the “Eyes-Brows” tab. Then click on the “Blend/Mask” button to toggle it a couple of times.  It should be set to “Blend”.
