Happy Holidays!

It’s been a while! 2014 was a crazy one! I moved to CA and am starting everything from scratch. I haven’t been doing nails at all! Terrible– I know! But I finally got around to doing it just in time for Christmas.

If you noticed, my nails are short! My claws have been filed down to little shorties since June! It’s crazy but with my new job, it’s just impossible to keep my beautiful class intact.

This design was created using CalGel and Trump Gel. This nail set is a natural nail gel overlay. Gold & clear iridescent glitters with different sized gold hexagon Splash! brand holograms.

I’ll try to do better about doing nails & posting! Thanks for visiting! Happy Holidays & remember to keep your claws modish!

Xoxo,

Girly Girl

Sometimes we get so wrapped up with crazy art, we forget about the classic looks.
Simple is sweet. And simple is in.

Girly- girl look is easy to do, easy to work with, and you will never get bored. This type of style doesn’t mean you have to choose colors like pink or lavender. It can be a range of pastels– even white.
Of course, you can create girly designs like floral and dots. But you can make girly out of a simple deep french using a soft color and glitter or hologram to line it.

Today, I was lucky to do a new set for a sweet college student. It was her very first gel nails! She was a sweet girly-girl. So, she picked a really soft pastel pink, and a pearly white hologram in big and small sizes to line the deep French.
The design was very simple, but fresh and clean. A cute look.

For the new year, maybe you want to try something simple, sweet, fresh , and girly like this. You’ll never get bored. And even if you do, you can always add to the design!

A Sweet Treat

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of doing a really fun design I have not yet done: cupcakes!

Ms. M has coming to me for about 6-7 months now. She always tries new things, and she brings in pictures and designs of what she is thinking. We take bits and pieces and put together our own take. I love this about her. I also love how perfectly made her nails are for square shape.

She loves red, and this time, she really wanted to do cupcakes. So, we decided to do a red color matte gradation, and a pink matte color gradation for the cupcake base. We chose to do the dot sprinkles with acrylic to give it an embossed look. And, the cherry on the top is a red Swarovski crystal.

Lets just hope, Ms. M doesn’t get in trouble at work for having “flashy nails.”

So here is a sweet treat for those with a sweet tooth…er…nails!

While flipping through the web for cupcake ideas, I ran into tons of different styles. Try out different color combos, medias, textures, and designs. The possibilities are endless.
I had so much fun with this. Maybe I can do a “sweets themed” nail set next!
