Green french gel nails

Hello!

This time I am posting a photos of a green french gel nails. I wanted something really simple and looking happy.

For making this nails I used coloured light green french tips and nail stickers with flowers. I really like this design. Simple and reminding me of spring 🙂

Only one thing I don’t like is that I was to lazy and used green french tips instead of green gel to make nail endings. By glueing tips to the very short nails I made them looking shorter than they actually are. You can see it on this picture of the thumb.

When you are making french nails you should try to make nail bed optically longer, so you want to put smile line as near the free edge of a nail as possible. When you are making artificial french nails or if you are painting french endings on a natural long nails you can also move smile line beyond free edge and hide the real line with not transparent nail polish, gel or acryl. Good thing is also to make smile line a little bit deeper than the natural one especially when your nails are wide.

Thank you for coming!

New Year’s Eve gel toe nails

Hello!

So Christmas is comming with a big steps. Did you already made your Christmas nail designs? I didn’t 🙂 I am afraid that I will make my nails now and trash them before Christmas Eve, so I am planning to leave this for later. I decided to take care of my toe nails instead. Christmas for me is usually not a time for open toe shoes so I already focused on New Year’s Eve design.

New Year’s Eve is still more than one week from now so I don’t know what clothes I will wear on this occasion. I decided use a design which always fits for this event – silver glitter.
I couldn’t decide if it should be just silver glitter or silver holographic glitter, but in the end I picked the holographic becouse it makes the sparkles more colourful and happy 🙂

Some of my toe nails were a little bit too short so I made gel extensions instead of just sprinkling glitter on a transparent nail polish. I also wanted to get this long lasting high gloss effect carried by the gel nails 🙂

On the big nail I added a black flower. Maybe just before New Years Eve I will attach some silver rhinestones to the nails 🙂

When my nails were ready I realized that I will most probably wear golden stillettos, so I actually should use some golden glitter instead of silver 🙂

I hope I will find some time to make a Christmas nail design and post it in time.

Have a nice day everybody and thanks for coming!

French nails with a dark blue cracked ice glitter flakes

Hello everybody!

This time I wanted to use cracked ice glitter flakes. It’s a foil cut into small irregular pieces. The one I used is dark blue, transparent and gives some green and orange reflections.

In a jar it looks like this

I used it to make french nails with flakes added on a smile line. To make the nails more colourful I used also a golden pearl gel. This is how the nails look

In a daylight this gel gives silver shimmer effect with a little bit of warm gold reflections.

In an artificial light it looks gold. I really like this effect!

Unfortunately I cannot take a good picture which shows how exactly this foil shines in the light. I hope you can see the effect.

Have a nice weekend!

 

 

Gel toe nails with snow

Hello everybody!

Long time ago I wrote a post about ‘snow’ glitter. I used special white glitter which looks like snow flakes. The old post is HERE. I haven’t been using this glitter since then so I was thinking that it would be nice to make some new ‘winter’ design. This is how the ‘snow’ looks in the jar.

Actually I love this glitter when it’s used on natural nails just covered with top coat. It’s a little bit rough and gives some sparkles from time to time like a real snow surface. Under the gel the effect is completely different and it looks rather like thick flour than a snow.
So here are my gel toe nails which I am wearing now.

I am not a biggest fan of a white colour so I added some nail stickers with black flowers to make contrast.

Have a nice weekend 🙂

Almond shaped violet nails with shiny dazzlings

In the last post about doughnut pendant there was one of my nails in the photo. Now it’s time to show them all 🙂

And here they are.

It’s gel nails with some shiny dazzlings. Everything is in one of my favourite colour – violet.

And here is the thumb.

I hope you like them 🙂
