Golden Wonderland

This was a set of Gel nails that i did on my friend Juli.  We filled her nails with Light Elegance Extreme Clear and then topped them with gel polish.  We used Young Nails Gold 101 and Ruby 101, then stamped the trees using Essie Penny Talk and Bundle Monster's BM-H02.

Festive Christmas Manicure

This was a really simple manicure that got A LOT of attention.  I did this for my friend Joan 2 weeks ago.  Her daughter had a baby, and all the nurses kept on pulling Joan out into the hallway to look at her nails during the delivery!  Lol We both giggled over that :)  I started out with Young Nails Ruby 101 mani q color and then hand-painted the stripes with a gold and green striper.  Simple, yet festive :)  Hope you like it!.

Silver Snowflake

This is going to be a pretty short post.  This is a set of gel nails done on my friend Juli.  I used LE extreme clear building gel to do the backfill on her nails.  After shaping and finishing, we used Young nails Silver 101 and a Gelish Blue (not sure which one0 to do the backround paint job.  We finished up by using BM-H03 stamping plate and Essie No Place Like Chrome to stamp on the silver snowflake onto the ring fingers :)  Loved how these turned out.  Sorry for the vagueness!  <3

Bordeaux Ornaments

These are a set of gel nails that I did a few weeks ago on my friend Chauncy.  The sculpting gel is Light Elegance Extreme Clear, and this is a set that has been on for a few months now.  Look, no fill lines! :)  We painted on the french in Young Nails Bordeaux 101 and stamped on the Christmas Ornaments pattern using BM-H03 and Essie There's No Place Like Chrome.  Nice, clean and simple, just how I like to do nails.  Hope you like them too!

Skinny Vanilla Latte Loses Her Leaves

I've been having problems posting consistently since i started working full time as a nail tech.  Seems that getting home after work and getting onto a computer is the last thing I want to do.  But I digress,
on to the nails!  This is a Gelish gel manicure that I did on a lovely friend of mine.  Joan's a fan of nudes, so we used Skinny Vanilla Latte and stamped her with gold leaves using ESSIE Penny Talk and BM 19 (Bundle Monster).

Winters Coming

I still have quite a few sets of Fall nails left to post, but I wanted to start out December right, with some snowflakes.  We had a couple inches of snow a few days ago so this just seems fitting.  I did this gel manicure on my friend Jen, and yes, these are her natural nails.  She's pretty lucky in the nail department.  This was super simple, using "Wiggle fingers, Wiggle Thumbs, thats the way the Magic Comes" from Gelish, and No Place Like Chrome from Essie used to stamp Snowflakes from BM-H02.  I finished things off with a silver striper to outline the blue and Gelish Top it Off. :)
