today I have photos of my recent gel polish nail design to show you.
To make these sparkly blue nails I used:
– on the middle finger nail – EzFlow TruGel Magic & Mischief. It’s really lovely pastel blue. If you want to see my other post with swatches of this gel polish click HERE,
– on the ring finger nail I dabbed two coats of transparent blue glitter. Usually to cover a whole nail with a glitter I apply three thin coats of glitter mixed with a top coat. Here I used only two and it doesn’t look as good as three coats,
– on my thumb nail, index finger nail and pinkie I am wearing LeChat Perfect Match MOOD – Skies The Limit.
Skies The Limit is a thermo gel polish which reacts to temperature. I am totally in love with this polish. It applies like a dream. It is completely opaque with two thin coats without streaks. Depending on the temperature it changes colour from light turquoise when it’s warm to a prussian blue (I was searching for how to call this colour and I think that would be right name for it, but I am not sure) sort of colour when it’s cold.
I had a huge problem taking a good photos of this gel polish during the colour transition because it’s changing so fast. My hands were all the time cold so catching the darker shade was easy, but then I was trying to keep the hands in warmth so the polish would change to turquoise. As soon as I was going out to make a photos in a decent daylight the colour was changing back. I don’t know how girls which swatch this kind of polishes make so beautiful swatches while colour is transitioning 🙂 My just didn’t want to show up like I wanted and when I wanted but as soon as I packed my camera back I had beautiful two toned nails ready for a snapshots.
Ok, so here is the photo of Skies The Limit when it is cold.
Here is the photo when Skies The Limit is warm with a cold nail tips.
To add some finishing touches to this mani on the index finger nail over the Skies The Limit I added blue holographic stars and two shades of blue glitter. It shines AND changes colour 🙂
today I have swatches of IBD Just Gel Polish – Maui Sunset to show you.
Maui Sunset is one of my favourite gel polish colours. It’s a beautiful shimmery burgundy. I love it because it’s elegant deep colour, but it’s not too dark. Depending on the light it shows some pink undertones or goes a bit more brown.
Maui Sunset is opaque in two coats, but third coat makes the colour more rich. I definitely recommend to apply three thin coats.
Application of this gel polish is really easy. The formula is great and the colour doesn’t shrink back or move around during painting.
I think this colour is great for fall and winter.
Thank you for coming!
Today I have photos of my Green Rockstar Toenails with Nail Foil to show you.
To make this pedicure I used Soak Off Gel Polish, a loose Green Glitter and Silver Nail Art Foil.
After nail preparation and the base coat I applied three thin coats of gel polish top coat mixed with glitter. I cured each coat and sealed the nail surface with the gel polish top coat to get the smooth base for applying the foil. After curing the top coat I waited a bit and than applied foil on the inhibition layer. If I do it straight after curing the foil doesn’t want to transfer. As a final step I sealed the design with the gel polish top coat.
Unfortunately my super ultra mega shiny toenails are super ultra mega shiny only in strong light. If the light is dimmed the nail foil looks just like regular kitchen tin foil added over glitter. Still I like the effect.
today I have photo of my Toenails Design with Neon ZigZag to show you.
For this design I used three coats of EzFlow TruGel – Magic & Mischief which is a lovely pastel blue gel polish colour. On the top of it I added neon green nail art flock which unfortunately is difficult to see, but changed nail colour from pastel blue to light teal. I actually like this new colour. It reminds me of a tropical water.
On the top I added neon yellow zigzag nail sticker and sealed the design with gel polish top coat.
Thank you for coming!
