Christmas Nail Art with Gel Polish

My friend Trish came in to get her nails done yesterday and told me just to do something “Christmasy”. Her only stipulation was she wanted gel polish, so here is Trish’s gel polish Christmas nail art mani. It’s kind of eclectic but I think it turned out cute!

We started with a red, white, green, and silver base…

I used Gelish All Tied Up With A Bow, Gelish Just What I Wanted, OPI GelColor Alpine Snow, and Gelish Little Miss Sparkle. I knew I wanted to do a peppermint candy nail but …

Creative Nail Design Shellac Aurora Collection

The Shellac Aurora Collection from Creative Nail Design is so gorgeous and perfect for winter manis! With names like Tundra, Winter Glow, Glacial Mist, and Nordic Light these shimmery rich colors are definitely reminiscent of the aurora borealis and frosty glaciers. It’s amazing how something as simple as a name can stir up memories…when I saw this collection I was immediately taken back to the summer after my senior year in high school where I worked in Glacier Bay, Alaska for three months.Β So many good memories.Β πŸ™‚

Here’s a great post from …

Christmas Nail Art! And a recap of my first week back to work!

Oh my goodness do I love Christmas nails! I’m sad I didn’t go back to work sooner just so I could do more Christmas nail art.

I’ve been pretty busy at work this week…my first official week back since I left almost three years ago. And I am so grateful for everyone who gives me business! I seriously …

Orly GelFX Review–Rage

I am in love with Orly GelFX! I’ve only tried two colors but both have cured better than most other brands and they seem to hold up better as well.

This is Orly Rage, a gorgeous Rose Gold Metallic Shimmer. It covered opaquely in two coats but I like to do three for good measure. I did a nude color on my ring finger with an IKAT type triangle nailart design in Rage.

I haven’t tried their base and top coat yet but that will be next on my list. I love …

Orly GelFX Liquid Vinyl with Edgy Fall Nailart

I popped into Sally Beauty the other day while my son and niece were running around the Halloween store next door and was DELIGHTED to find they are now selling Orly GelFX! I’ve been wanting to try this product forever but just hadn’t gotten around to ordering any AND the price is amazing–$8.00ish with a PROCard!

Just a little info, Sally seems to carry the largest selection of gel polish out of all the beauty suppliers in town and has the largest nail art section too. I saw China Glaze Gelaze, …

Gelish Colors of Paradise Collection Available Here!

These colors are amazing! The blue and purple are probably the funnest shades I’ve seen yet from the color scheme! The other colors are super bright and neon and perfect for summer! Gelish recommends putting an Artic Freeze base coat under the colors to enhance the brightness and coverage which I believe is a great idea…I do this frequently and it’s worth the extra time and energy.
