Bridal Nails: Jenny's Photo-shoot nails

Jenny dropped by the night before her wedding photoshoot to get her nails ready! 

Initially, Jenny was planning to do her nails with gel polish. However when she reached, she mentioned that her nails feel really thin and weak as she didn't remove her previous set of gel polish the proper way (she actually peeled them off!!!), so she decided to do on normal polish instead! 

Just a warning to everyone! Don't peel your gel polish off as you may peel off part of your natural nail off at the same time. This will weaken your nail and in the long run, very harmful! Always remove them the proper way by soaking off, or visiting a salon! 

So anyway, Jenny sent me a few pictures as to how she wants her nails to be like, and to sum it up, they have to be bling and have flowers! She will be wearing a simple white gown, hence we decided to up the glam on her nails! 

I used OPI Passion as the base, and then OPI Servin'Up Sparkle for the glittery tips, and China Glaze Fairy Dust over the whole nail for a shimmery look! 

Jenny decided to alternate the design with the sweet looking cream roses and crystals! 

I love the set very much, super shiny and pretty! I can't wait to do her wedding nails in December already!

Gel Polish: pastel x aztec

This time round, colorful aztec nails with Angel Pro Gelly Polishes! 
I especially love the pastel color range from Angel Pro, they always look so yummy! 

All art done with Angel Pro Gelly Polish as well, so that the design can last longer! Because of that, it takes a bit longer as I have to go over the lines at least twice to make the black look more opaque and the design more sharp! 

Our favorite was the thumb design! It is not clear here, but the bottom part of the design are filled in with pastel yellow and pastel lilac to make it look more cheerful! 

Thank you to Serene who was game enough to try this design! (:

Flowers on Tips

Analise dropped by to remove her previous set of nails (Star Wars themed nails), and decided to go for a more classy look this time round! This set is done with OPI Passion and Alphine Snow for the base and tip, and then we added pretty nail stickers in various colors to create this look! 

I love how the colorful floral stickers add a totally different look to an otherwise plain French manicure! 

Gel Polish: Spotted in Neons

This set of pedicure is done with Angel Pro Gelly Polishes! I love the neon colors against the white background, very striking!
