First day of trying something new! For me it’s important to take care of my hands and nails, the hands are being used all the time. Literally all the time. I have painted my own nails with regular polish for a long time but it wasn’t until I got my first shellac done that I got hooked for real. Shellac is the best! To save money from going to expensive salons my beloved boyfriend actually got me an UV lamp and a set of Gel colors for Christmas last year. It has become an integral part of my monthly “beauty routine”. However, I still end up doing the same style over and over again, and that’s why I decided to take my nail skills to the next level.
That was easier said than done. I wanted to do a colorful pattern using tape.
After about an hour of prepping and trying it out I realized I need some better tools in order to use my Gel colors. Instead of giving up (believe me I wanted to) I decided to actually use my old regular polishes and do a simple, girly, glitterish look instead (result above).
What have I learned?
Research before starting a project- that would’ve saved me some time.
Don’t give up just because it didn’t work out the first time or went as planned- find a new way and do it again.
Maybe this wasn’t my best, but it was my first and everyone has to start somewhere!
This is what I used: OPI Natural Strengthener, OPI Nail Lacquer “Bubble Bath”, Essie Luxeffects “A cut above”, Sally Hansen No Chip top coat
