today I have a photos of my summer style gel polish manicure and pedicure.
For this design I used IBD Just Gel Polish – Retro Rosette and silver holographic glitter.
Retro Rosette is a really stunning colour. It is a beautiful creme fuchsia. It gives good coverage with two coats, but here I painted three coats as I usually do. In a sunshine it has a neon undertone which makes it very vibrant, but when the light is dimmed Retro Rosette becomes more like darker magenta.
I did not have any problems with application of Retro Rosette. It did not shrink or pool on the cuticles.
On an accent nail I added silver holographic glitter. After curing a base coat I painted the nail with a thin coat of gel polish top coat and added small amount of glitter with a clean gel brush. After curing this coat I repeated glitter application twice so finally I had three coats of glitter which gave good coverage. The glitter is sealed with two coats of gel top coat.
On my thumbs I painted shiny lines using glitter mixed with a gel polish top coat.
On my feet I made similar design as on my fingernails. I also added small silver stars on a big toenails.
I do not usually have a matching mani and pedi but I like it a lot so I think from now I will do this more often.
Thank you for coming 🙂
