October Recap at Polizhed

October recap of client nails by Andrea - Chickettes.comAnother month has flown by!  Things are starting to pick up for me little by little at Polizhed.  I’m gaining more regular clients each week and I had some opportunities to do some fun nails this past month.

I’ve found Instagram to be a great tool for sharing my client work, and it helps clients get ideas for what they want.  Since we charge for nail art by the nail most clients opt to get just a few accents.  So far I’ve mostly been using transfer foils, glitter, stamps and rhinestones/studs.  I’m trying to think of more ideas for nail art looks that aren’t too time consuming.  Leave me a comment if you have any tips!  :)

Let’s take a look at a few of my favorite looks from October.  You may notice that nudes, black and darker colors were trending.

Below is a sharp design that combines dark grey (Pink Gellac Smoked Grey), black, gold glitter, and black and gold studs.  I used tape to create the triangular pattern over the black nails, and then applied a little base coat in the open space to make it tacky.  I cured that for a few seconds and then dabbed on some loose gold glitter.

Grey, black & gold nails - Chickettes.comThis is another one of my favorites… a matte and shiny dotticure.  The base color is a dark navy blue by Cuccio called London Underground.  I topped it off with the Pink Gellac Matte Top Coat, and then added shiny dots using a regular gel top coat and a dotting tool.  You can see that on one of her nails we tried to see what it would look like in the reverse with a shiny finish and matte dots.  It looks much better the other way, but the client was open to experimenting.

Navy blue matte & shiny dotticure by Chickettes.comThis is a simple, yet fun look that one of my clients requested after seeing something similar on one of her social media accounts.  The colors used here are Cuccio Soaked in Seattle (dark grey), Pink Gellac Satin Grey (light grey), Pink Gellac Soft White and Pink Gellac Fabulous Silver.

Shades of grey manicure by Chickettes.comI did a couple of simple looks for Halloween.  This client wanted nude nails and a matte spiderweb accent.  The nude is Pink Gellac Vintage Nude, and I stamped the spiderweb design over black and topped it off with the Pink Gellac Matte Top Coat.

    Several of the manis you show have a dichroic look. Are those done with foils?

    Lovely work 😄😄😄 I’ve got tons of gel polish but get tired of it peeling off my nails even though I prep properly😢 My nails are thin and bend super easily, gel polish lasts better than reg polish but can be a pain if it keeps peeling😝
