Blue and Silver Wedding Nails

I did this set of my nails for my mother when she was attending our cousin's wedding.  Its a simple Gel manicure using Gelish Polish.  Gelish Up In The Blue was painted sideways on half the nail, stamped with a silver stamp and outlined with a silver striper.  She absolutely  loved these :)

Simple Sideways French

Simple. Easy, Elegant.  Thats generally how I like to keep my nails.  Keeping it fun and classy at the same time.  This is a simple white french, with a little hint of silver overtop of the white and also with an accent silver stripe.  The nails were just done with Gelish on natural nails.  :)

Classy Plum

This is a super quick post, but I have to say, these turned out pretty classy.  Julie has been getting Gel enhancements for a few months.  We simply filled her nails with Light Elegance Extreme clear building gel and then did a half nail design using Gelish Plum and Done and a silver striper.  Love this look :)

Nuts about Autumn!

I was pretty geeked about how these nails turned out - which is awesome since they're mine and I'm going to be wearing them for quite a while :)  I got off my ship and had my Green Cheetah nails grown out nearly 6 weeks! Eeek!  So I used my e-file to drill out most of the green coloration and glitter and came up with this new set of hard glitter gel nails.  I simply embedded glitter into my Light Elegance Clear builder gel, and then topped all of that off with more clear gel towards the cuticle area.  I filed them into shape and then used Essie's Penny Talk and BM H12 to stamp Acorns onto the ring fingers.  I capped everything with Gelish Top It Off, cured and BAM! Sparkly Sparkly Nails :)  Hope you like them as much as I do!

Skull Burst!

This mani will burst your skull!  Okay, well maybe not burst, but its pretty fantastic.  Its a simple gel manicure done using Gelish Gel Polish in Star Burst.  After one layer I sprinkled on some silver glitter, and topped with 2 top coats to get a nice smooth finish.  After that I stamped the skull design using Essie No Place Like Chrome and BM H07.  What do you think!?

Rococo A Go-Go Fall French

I love Fall, seriously.  Don't you?  This is a set of hard gel nails.  They're sculpted with Light Elegance Clear acrylic, and then filed, shaped and buffed.  The french design was done with Orly's Rococo A Go-Go, done freehand.  The accent finger is BM-H11 stamped with Essie No Place Like Chrome.  Topped that off with two topcoats, because I  didn't like the first one.

Little Lady Luxury Chevron

I just did these nails tonight and couldn't wait to share them with you.  These are a set of hard gel nails (back-filled with Light Elegance Extreme Gel clear) and topped with some Gelish nail art.  The pink is Gelish Light Elegant, the silver is Gelish Little Miss Sparkle and added loose silver holographic glitter, and the white is Young Nails White 101 with Essies No Place Like Chrome stamped using BM 423.  I'm pretty geeked and Ashley couldn't stop looking at them.  They were inspired by a Pinterest picture, but there was no watermark on it.  Anyway, enjoy!

The Kracken Pedicure!

I'm super excited about this.  Rock Star Kracken!  I wish the photos showed the rock star aspect better, but we all know cameras don't always cooperate, especially with glitter.  I started out with Gelish Foundation and then one coat of Gelish Star Burst, which is a nice pretty purple.  After curing, I used a paint brush and lightly brushed on dark purple glitter.  I then did two coats of Top It Off.  I lightly buffed my big toes and stamped on the octopus and tentacles with Bundle Monsters 2013 stamping set plate BM-401 and Essie's No Place like Chrome.  Hope you like them as much as I did!  OH and if you didn't notice, i have a new watermark now.  I'm about to start working for Completely Polished in Cranberry, PA :)  So I'm watermarking for both the salon and my webpage.  Check out the salons page! www.completelypolished.com  We're starting to take appointments TOMORROW! :)
