Gelish Queen of Hearts with Grand Jewels

Harmony Gelish Queen of Hearts with Grand Jewels.
Harmony Gelish Queen of Hearts is a great color for the holidays!

I used 1 layer of Gelish Grand Jewels on top to give a little bit of gold sparkle.  Rogue finger is 1 coat of CND Shellac Cocoa followed by 2 coats of Gelish Bronzed with gold glitter mixed in, and then 2 coats of CND Shellac Top Coat with red glitter mixed in for the red glitter fade effect.

Gelish Elegant Wish

Gelish Elegant Wish with Bronzed, gold glitter, and decals.
After applying CND Shellac base coat, applied 2 coats of Harmony Gelish Elegant Wish, and on top of that 1 coat of Harmony Gelish Bronzed.  Next, I used CND Shellac top coat and dipped the brush into gold craft glitter to paint the tips (using quick strokes away from the tip of the nail to create a slight fade effect).  I applied the decals next, and after that more CND Shellac top coat.

Gelish Bronzed

Gelish Bronzed over Shellac Cocoa. 
Harmony Gelish Bronzed is somewhat translucent, so I began by painting a single coat of CND Shellac in Cocoa over the nails (after the base coat). Then 2 coats of Bronzed, and added the leaf decals.  The red-brown accents are Harmony Gelish in Elegant Wish.

CND Shellac Cityscape with Accents

Shellac Cityscape with Asphalt and Gelish Coba Coba Blue accents.
This stunning look is actually quite easy to do if you have the right brushes. Base is CND Shellac in Cityscape and accents are Harmony Gelish Coba Coba Blue and CND Shellac Asphalt. I used a small flat brush to swipe the blue across the corner of each nail tip. The Shellac Asphalt was applied using the smallest, narrowest brush I had. Although the photo doesn't reflect this, the blue looks like a very bright neon blue when viewed in direct sunlight, but appears as a deeper blue indoors.
