I was going to leave my nails alone for a week to give them a break, but I caved! I’ve been trying to think of ways to use the entire Gelish All About the Glow collection in some nail art and I have so many ideas running through my head. My first thought was to do a colorful french manicure using a different color for each finger, but I only have 5 fingers and there are 6 colors… that won’t work. So I decided to do a few French tips, and two rainbow nails using every color in the collection!
On my ring finger and thumb I started with two coats of Sheek White and used a dotting tool to draw on the different colored stripes (only one coat for the stripes). For the French tips, I applied two coats of white, but only on the tips this time. I applied two coats of color to the tips leaving some space to give the appearance of a white outline. I applied one coat of Emerald Dust to each nail, and used a dotting tool to draw on a couple of small hearts. I applied one thin coat of Gelish Top It Off, and viola!
I really love how this turned out… they’re bright and fun, and sparkly too! The official Gelish FB page announced that they are having a “Summer Brights” nail art challenge. Post your best “bright” manicure using Gelish polish to their FB feed by May 21st and they will feature their top 5 picks! I’m definitely going to submit this one, and I can’t wait to see what other creations people come up with.
