Rubik’s Cube Nails

I wanted to try something colorful and fun tonight, so I went for a Rubik’s cube inspired look.  I started with a white base, painted on black stripes with a striping brush, and then filled in the colored spaces with a dotting tool.  I topped it off with two thick coats of Seche Vite to smooth it out.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  Now if only I could figure out how to actually solve a Rubik’s cube!

I cut my nails down today.  I think I actually like this length, it’s very manageable.  The nail on my middle finger has a really terrible rip in it and it ripped even worse while I was gardening today.  It’s ripped more than half way across now and it’s really low and painful.  So I patched it up again with a teabag, nail glue and gave it a nice strong gel base.  Hopefully it holds for a while so I can grow it out.

    This is pretty creative :-) I really like it! You know, I tried using Gelish under regular np but I kept getting an unkempt look from the Gelish after just about a week of wearing it. How long do you go before you have to redo the Gelish layer?

      I don’t normally use a Gelish base for regular polish except when I have a nail that needs repaired. Because I change polish so often it only lasts about a week and then I soak it off and reapply. I’ve had a regular Gelish manicure last more than two weeks, but I usually get bored of the color I’m wearing before it’s actually ready to come off :)
