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 ♥
