After, literally, hours of looking at and debating on designs, I decided on my first nail set of 2013. Whew.
Sometimes, I can easily get an idea on a design from inspiration from an outfit, or client’s nails, the weather, season, or even just a color.
Other times, it takes me forever to decide on something. Often times, this happens because I want to do everything, but I own limited colors of gels and/or nail art accessories.
This time, I had the latter and had a huge nailist’s block and couldn’t think if an exact design.
My mother just brought me back 5 new nail magazines from Japan and bunch of cool new gels, accessories, and holograms & glitters.
I think I was so excited about all my new toys that it made it harder for me to make a decision.
I ended up getting my inspiration from one of the new magazines, “Super Gel Nail, Design Maniax”:
I had to sub the yellow for something else because I haven’t gotten myself any yellow gel yet. Instead, I went with matte white with sprinkles of neon hologram. And instead of the star on the pink polka dot nails, I added on single stone. This is what I came up with:
These were done using CalGel (CG04; 18 mix 06), Trump Gel (Base; Hard top), and Naility Gel (matte white). The holograms come in one container with mix of neons and sheer neon flakes, and are by Splash.
I drew the hearts myself. They were done using gel– just like the polka dots.
And, of course, now that my nails are longer, I had to point them and shape stiletto nails. The claws are back!
My first nail set of 2013 are stiletto pop art nails! Happy New Year (again), y’all!
Thanks for visiting and remember to keep your claws modish!
