Snowy Nails

Gelish "Up In The Blue" and "Sleek White".
This was my first attempt at sponge painting!  The blending is pretty rough, but I think that actually adds to the snowy effect.

Painted 2 coats of Harmony Gelish in Sleek White over entire nail, then used a sponge to make the gradient with Gelish "Up In The Blue".  I did 3 rounds of sponge painting on each nail to get enough coverage with the blue.

Holiday Nails

Gelish Queen of Hearts with gold glitter.
Unfortunately I waited over a week to take a picture of this one, so there is definitely some visible wear and growth in the photo!

The red is Harmony Gelish in Queen of Hearts and the green rogue nail is Harmony Gelish in Bronzed mixed with green glitter (3 coats).  Tipped each nail with CND Shellac Top Coat mixed with gold glitter.

CND Shellac Cocoa with glitter

CND Shellac Cocoa with silver glitter.
This is CND Shellac in Cocoa with silver glitter starting at the cuticle and faded outward.  Since this person broke a few nails since the last manicure, we wanted to try this as a way to detract attention from the length of the nail.
