Hazel and Audrey dropped by to get their nails ready for prom!

Freehand lace half-tip design on a nude base, and florals! 2 different looks, and I hope they will have an enjoyable time at Prom!

For Hazel, I used OPI Tickle My France-y for the nude base, and drew the lace details with black acrylic paint. For Audrey, I used China Glaze Aquadelic for the turquoise base, and drew the flowers with acrylic paint as well. 

Gel Polish : of snowman & snowflakes

Mabel wanted to do a christmas set, but doesn't have a specific theme or design in mind! With Ying's cute set as inspiration, this is what I came up with for Mabel!

I used Harmony Desert Sands as the base color, then sponged on AngelPro Gelly #47 (white), followed by #25 (blue), and lastly topped it off with Harmony Waterfield. Super festive and cute! 

On her thumbs, I drew a simple snowman as requested by Mabel, and added in a flying reindeer on one, and a moose on the other thumb!

Gel Polish: Cute Ribbons!

Peiyan decided on a super cute and colorful ribbons design from one of the Japanese magazines! This is what I did. I told Peiyan that I rarely do embossed ribbons, and will do a mixture of different ribbons on every fingers...... :P

I used AngelPro Gelly #47(white), #23 (hot pink), #9 (yellow) for the base colors, and #21 for the pink stripes and for the polka dots. Then I sculpted the ribbons on! 

The outcome is super cute and sweet! Love it, super cheerful!

Gel Polish: Blinged with laces

I did half-moons with lace on all fingers except the ring finger, which has a full lace design. I used Orly Shine for the base, super duper shiny indeed! Then I drew on the lace details with acrylic paint.

Gel Polish: Minx Inspired Skulls

Wendy sent this picture prior to the appointment, mentioning that she wants this minx image on her big toe! 
It's quite a bit of goes! 

Wendy decided to have black/white combi for the rest of the toes to keep it simpler, and this is what I did for her!

I couldn't squeeze in all the skulls, so we decided on 2-3.....and I did 2.5 I think, lol! I used AngelPro Gelly #27(black for the base), and then #47 (white) for the art for the little toes, then Harmony Gelish June Bride for the accent toe! Skulls were done with acrylic paint.

Gel Polish: Take Flight

Wendy has already decided on the nail art she wants for her manicure prior to the appointment; butterfly wings with gradient base. This is a design that has been floating around the Internet for the longest while, but I have ever done it before!

Wendy's nails are pretty long and slim, so I had to resize the design to fit it on her nails. First I did the gradient base by sponging AngelPro Gelly #23(pink), then #35(red), #9(yellow), and lastly #10(green). Then I did the black outline with #27 and random white spots with #47!

As for the thumb, they were super shiny! We did a sheer glittery base, and then I stuck on super pretty and shiny disco balls from Eriko (brand from Japan that Ying brought back!) in different colors! I love it! (I'm such a magpie sometimes.....)

Gel Polish: Cinnamoroll Love

Olivia sent me pictures of cinnamoroll prior to the appointment, requesting the theme to be on sync to the phone covers! They look so adorable, right?!

Drawing them prove to be a little tough, because of the proportions... I hope they're recognizable!

I used AngelPro Gelly #21 (pink) as the base color on the thumb and ring finger, Gelish Desert Sands and then AngelPro Gelly #47(white) for the scallop tips. Then I lined them with dots, using #72 (pink), #73 (purple) and #75(blue).

Then #143 (dark blue) for the outlines of hearts and ribbons and cinnamoroll! it took a while for the thumbs to be completed due to the layers for drawing...

I like them! How about you?
