Fuchsia Nails with Glitter

Hello,
today I have photos of my Fuchsia Nails with Glitter to show you.

Pink nails

For this very simple design I painted my nails with two coats of IBD Just Gel Polish – Retro Rosette and than added dark pink glitter and some chunky glitter in a similar colour.

For a glitter application I used a clean gel brush and dabbed small portion of glitter straight on an uncured thin coat of gel polish top coat.

After curing the coat with glitter I sealed the design with three thin coats of gel polish top coat.

Manicure and Pedicure with IBD Just Gel Polish – Retro Rosette

Hi,
today I have a photos of my summer style gel polish manicure and pedicure.

Gel Polish Pedicure IBD Just Gel Polish

For this design I used IBD Just Gel Polish – Retro Rosette and silver holographic glitter.

IBD Just Gel Polish Retro Rosette

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 :)

Gelish Trends – Lots of Dots

Hello,
today I have swatches of Lots of Dots from Gelish Trends collection. Lots of Dots was released in October 2013, so it is available for a while now.

Lots of Dots is a gel polish which can be worn over another gel polish colour or as a stand-alone product applied over a gel base coat. It contains different colors of tiny little dots in a clear base. What differs it from most of toppers is that it does not glitter.

You can see on the photos how loaded with dots it is. Don’t forget to give it a good shake before the application.

Below are swatches of Lots of Dots over white tips.

You can see that one coat already gives pretty nice effect. I applied it using dabbing technique, so it took a bit longer, but application was easy and smooth. Gel was self leveling and didn’t pool at the cuticles, so moving the dots around with the brush was easy.

Here is my mani I am wearing right now. I applied one coat of Lots of Dots over three coats of IBD Just Gel Polish – Seashell Pink. I finished my manicure with one coat of gel top coat which was enough to seal the dots and get smooth nail surface without the bumps.
I think this gel polish is pretty great because you can overlay with it many different gel polish colours and get new looks.

Nude Pink Nails with Blue Flowers

Hello,

after wearing a lot of glittery nail designs recently I wanted something more subtle on my nails.

IBD Just Gel Polish Manicure

I painted my nails with nude pink gel polish (IBD Just Gel Polish РSeashell Pink) and added silver and blue flower nail stickers.

I used delicate nail decorations to make the nail design more original without disturbing the elegant look of the nude pink colour.
