Spring Brocade

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 artΒ β™₯

  • I love these! Did you get the foils from Dollar Nail Art? I wanted to purchase some foils but was curious about which one you have on your nails. Thank you! =)

    • I actually got mine from a local beauty supply shop, but they appear to be just like the ones from Dollar nail art πŸ™‚

  • Chelsea,

    Your nail art is so original and sophisticated. You should really consider giving step-by-step instructions and/or making video tutorials. Can you also tell us how you shape your nails? It looks so much better than the typical square tips that all the nail bloggers have.

  • Nevermind, I found your YouTube channel. You are hilarious! I love the outtakes at the end. I wish you made videos for all the nail art that you publish though. I know it’s a lot more work, but they’re so much more informative. Anywho, keep up the great work!
