Black Gelish Manicure with Baroque Accent Finger

This is a manicure I did quite a while ago on myself.  Its Gelish on top of my regular gel nails.  The black is Gelish The Naughty List and the Blue accent finger is Oocha coocha bing bang bam, alakazy alakazam with a stamp on top.  I've always loved the baroque stamp that I used, so i stared at my nails quite a bit during the two weeks that I wore these :)  Looooved them!

Purple Gliter Gel Manicure

Ahhh.  I finally have a moment (and working internet) to do a blog post.  Again, another quickie, because I can't be uploading a gazillion photos while offshore.  This is a set of gel nails that I did on my mom.  Its Gelish basecoat with one layer of purple gel polish.  After curing both of those layers in a UV lamp, I added loose glitter directly onto the tacky layer that curing leaves.  I then topped with two layers of top coat (and cured) so that the gliter didn't leave any texture to the finish.  I then buffed the two ring fingers, applied a Konad stamp in white and then sealed those two with a top coat.  (I've found that its better to cure, buff, and stamp than to just try to stamp on the tacky layer).  Anyway, here's the finished product.  I think they're pretty great!

Rainbow glitter gels with Swirl stamp

My job is definitely getting in the way of blogging.  I mean that.  Seems like I never have time.  I can't believe my last post was June 19th!  Where does the time go?  Anyway, our internet connection is pretty bad on this boat, so I'm going to do another quickie for you.  A simple one or two photos.  These are the nails that I'm wearing currently.  They're the grown out fills from the rainbow zebra post (2 posts ago).  I filled them with clear and stamped a white swirl pattern on top.  I like them even more than when they were zebra, go figure?  *shrugs*    And stay tuned, because I did stock-pile pictures of nails that I did while I was home.  Yey!
