Nail Art! What I’ve Been Wearing Lately

nail-art-what-ive-been-wearingIf you’ve visited me in the studio lately you may recognize these designs as they are a few of my latest weekly manicures. On the weekends I usually catch up on swatching and reviews and then I decide on a nail art look to wear for the week while I work.  I usually choose something simplistic and I like to add some accents to show my clients the type of work I can do.

This is the design that I wore last week.  I started with a silver base using Gelish Tinsel My Fancy from the new Red Matters Collection (I’ll post the swatches very soon, I promise!!).  Then I stamped over the middle two nails using a Mundo de Unas purple stamping polish, and UberChic stamping plate Out of Africa-01.

uber-chic-squigglesFor this look I used Pink Gellac Powerful Plum, Luxury Gold and Beautiful Black.  I stamped over the black nail with a Mundo de Unas gold stamping polish and UberChic stamping plate Wild West-01.  I really liked the gold accents in this mani.

pg-black-gold-stampingThis was my least favorite look, but I thought I’d share it anyway.  :)  This design didn’t turn out quite as beautiful as I imagined in my head.  The two accent nails turned out a little muddy, but I still received a lot of compliments on the look.  The base color used was Pink Gellac Chique Red, which has been a very popular color with my clients.  I used a nail art brush and applied a bit of Emerald Green and Golden Rose over top.  I stamped over top with Mundo de Unas gold stamping polish and an image from Cheeky Jumbo Plate #10.

    Lovely designs – my favourite is the purple and silver stamping. Do you just top coat and cure the stamping once it’s done? I am a gel novice! Thanks!
