Beautiful nails, as a symbol of status, can show one’s good manners and temperament. Nail art, also known as nail design, refers to the process in which one’s nails are sterilized, cleaned, cared, maintained, reshaped and eventually beautified according to one’s requirements; including the shape of one’s hands, nails, skin and the color of clothing. Nail art boasts diverse characteristics.
Just popped to show you quickly what I have created with my new product. Recently I have received my new builder gel, one movement slant brush,tec. I have ordered some micro glitters to create that popular sugar effect on nails, but my supplier didn't get it, so to please me Kinga Lukazewska from Brillbird sent me as a present gold micro glitter. Just to say thank you I am sharing with you her e-mail if someone wants to order any of Brillbird amazing products email@example.com. She can send you online catalog to have a look at the products.
Let me tell you how you can make those lovely Christmas designs. Very popular this winter, they make you look unique.
1. Apply base coat and cure
2. Apply 2 coats of you desire colour and cure each for 2 mins
3. Apply a coat finish gel from First Gel ( or gel polish top coat) and cure
4. If you apply finish gel from First gel you don't have sticky layer and you can proceed with making swirls with black One stroke UV painting gel. Than sprinkle micro glitter on the wet paint. Than cure for 2 mins.
If you applied gel polish top coat, you need to wipe off and than buff the nail plate. Than proceed with drawing swirls and sprinkling glitter. Than cure.
5. With dust brush remove the excess glitter.
6. Apply top coat and cure. I prefer on designs to apply non-wipe off top coat, in case you didn't cure well and might damage the design.
This is again a combined post for 2 designs - simple French with silver foil ornament on the sile line, and nice pink shellac with flowers. The background is nude colour (sorry don't remember the name of the shellac gel polish)
First set was sculpted , but the second are natural nails.
Yes, they are liquid stones just because they were made sing builder gel mixed with glitter. On the mint coloured one is different technique. Instead glitter I used additives and then dropped gel polish top coat.
Wow, it passed such a long time since I haven't made any posts.
Its Christmas time and all making designs in light of that festive season. I still didn't have ladies requiring them, but just to prepare myself created some new ones.
All are made with Bluesky gel polish and CND additives. Using black gel paint from First Gel I made some elements and sprinkled glitter and afterwards cured the nails for 2 minutes. Then brush away the excessive glitter and top coated them.
There I am with something new. The colour I have used before a month for another client but different decoration. Today is flower and mixed with god foil transfer.
Flower was really nice but I forgot to buff the nail before drawing it,and I had to make the foil transfer therefore when buffing the nail I damaged the flower, but the client haven't noticed that. Thanks god...
These are her nails last time. I took a picture of them to show you how they are after a month. Crystals were still there even...
Winter is coming, as well as Christmas, but somehow I still like painting may nails with bright summer colours.
Two weeks ago I bought some new shades from Essie. One of them is this nice peach colour Tart Deco 74.
Essie has nice wide brush with soft bristles, really comfortable to work with. Colour has been applied in two coats and not sealed with top coat, except the accent nail, which I decorated using one stroke technique.
They are cold liquid stones, because have been made using hard gel and some glitter in. You can put some gold foil or colour gel to give some shade to the stones.
To outline the stones I have used foil transfer technique. Using black gel paint from First gel I have made lines and cured for 1 min. Then printed the foil. Forgot to say before making the lines, you need to make sure the tacky layer is removed well, buff the whole surface well, no shine...otherwise the foil will stick everywhere, but you just need to be only over the black lines.
Peach daiquiri is one of the new nail polishes I have bought last week. It was shown design with it in my last post, but in that one you will see what I created on my own natural nails. It is simple, quick and easy to be done.
Really quickly will show you I have done these days. The nails you will see are with gel overlay. For the first set I have used the amazing nail polish from EssiePeach daiquiri 72 & Eternal optimist 23
On the nails coated with Eternal optimist I drew simple flowers. The following picture shows how they were before, just forgot to take a pic before removing the nail polish.
There is something here that I am not really got at and this is the oval shape. Lady was offered to be done gold foil ornament on the black base. Nothing so special, just something she never had. Hope next to be not sho short with me so I can make better design for her. For the next two sets I have used shellac gel polish.
Wow, there is the amazing red coloured nails with her favourite flowers for my client yesterday, made by one stroke technique.
Had the feeling today I will do nails with crystals and it happened. First choice of a flower on two nails have been changed to line only, but honestly is not my type of design so I offered to attach crystals.
For those nails I have used Bluesky 80547 & 80548 over uv gel natural overlay. At last sealed with non wipe off top coat and done...
There is something new I want to show you today. Finally a client decided to try my dark purple colour off shellac. The result was amazing.
It is acrylic natural overlay, and then painted with gel polish. Accent nails have been decorated with little cute butterfly. For the design I have used acrylic paints and one stroke movement technique. After drying a while it was sealed with gel polish non wipe top coat.
