Happy Spring! This past winter I did these brocade nails – they are one of my favorite designs! I thought it would be fun to do an updated version for Spring Who says you can’t switch up your favorite Winter time nail looks for Spring?
Tomorrow I am leaving on a week long trip for Spring break all around California…stopping in San Francisco and Yosemite! Being the nail art addict that I am, I thought “what am I going to do for a week without nails?!” I decided to do this design with gel polish so my nails will last the whole week without chipping I love doing gel, and since I change my nails so often I don’t get many opportunities to do them!
If you aren’t familiar with how gel polish works, you need a UV lamp. You first apply a gel base coat, and then cure it in the lamp. Once that was ready I applied the gel polish and cured that! I then used regular nail polish to do my designs, applied gel top coat, and ta-da!
The specific colors I used are: Orly Gel FX Mirror Mirror and CND Shellac Gotcha
The metallic things on my nails are “nail foils”…my new obsession Super easy to do, if you google it tons of sites and tutorials will come up.
Anyways…I’ll be up and posting next week along with some exciting news to share! I will have access to internet so feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions or want to share your nail art ♥
