Simple nail art
This is 2 coats of OPI Gelcolor Wooden Shoes Like to Know. I added a fade with Additivies - Blush Bronze and Burning Ember, then dotted OPI Topcoat, cured and wiped with alcohol. The effect was very subtle.
The first time I tried this effect I used Gelish Structure Gel and it turned out great but had a pretty bumpy finish. So I tried using Topcoat this time but I find that the dots ended up running together in some places. So I will definitely not use Topcoat again.
I felt my nails were yellowing slightly since I wore regular polish for a couple of weeks and decided to go with something light for a change. This is 2 coats of Shellac Cake Pop and some water decals. I put the decals over the 'finished' gel manicure and then top coated with Seche Vite. I didn't think I'd want to wear this for the full two weeks and I was right....
I ended up removing the decals and stamped with one of my new Bundle Monster plates using China Glaze Cranberry Splash which I also used to paint an accent. Definitely my favorite red ever!
