Stuck On Love Nail Shields & Pink Gellac Glitter Effect Sprays
I had a little play time with some new products and created this nail art look. Girly Bits Cosmetics sent me some Stuck on Love nail shields that have a pattern that looks a little like fishnet. The nail shields have a sticky adhesive on the back and you stick them onto your nail and polish over them to create a pattern. You can use them with regular polish or gel. These nail shields will be available on the Girly Bits website on Monday, February 16th (read the press release here).
To get this look, I started by painting my nails with my base colors (gel polish of course). The shimmery coral color on my index finger, thumb and pinky is Kiara Sky Cocoa Coral, and I used Pink Gellac Beautiful Black on the other nails. On the two black nails, I wiped off the tacky layer and then applied the nail shield to the nails. The nail shields are very large, so I was able to cut one in half and use it on both nails.
Next, I applied a coat of Pink Gellac Beautiful Black gel polish over top of the nail shield.
While the black polish was still wet, I sprayed gold glitter over the nails and peeled off the nail vinyl. Then I cured the nails in my LED lamp as usual for 30 seconds.
Lastly, I cleaned off the excess glitter and top coated!
I used my new Pink Gellac Glitter Effect Spray to get this look. This is a brand new product that is now available at Chickettes Boutique. Save $5 on orders over $35 this month with coupon code LOVE5! They are clear plastic bottles with a pump spray nozzle, filled with 25 grams of loose microglitter. The glitter sprays are available in gold, holographic silver, pink and red. The sprays allow you to add a glitter effect to your gel polish manicure by spraying the glitter onto the nail while the gel polish is still wet (before curing). After adding the glitter, you cure the polish as normal and then apply your top coat.
I find that the bottles spray a pretty generous amount of glitter. To get this look I think I sprayed each nail 2 or 3 times to ensure full coverage and to completely fill in the pattern. The glitter sprays are a little hard to explain in words, so I will be preparing a video demo soon!
This is the completed look! :)
