Miyake came over to do her mani and CNY pedi – yes, it was pretty early, but gel pedicures can be worn for 2 months because toenails grow slowly, so new nail growth is not that unsightly compared to fingernails… so even though the gel can last a long time, many customers like to get a new mani done every 3-4 weeks.
This time, I brought in One Piece stickers specially for her as I knew she liked Chopper from the One Piece series, and she chose to have them for her mani! I used them over a sweet white gradient tip with silver glitter:
The mani was done with Gelish Desert Sands as the base, then Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #47 (white) on the tips, blended upwards, and then I added silver glitter.
For her pedi art, she picked a red hot leopard print design from one of my Japanese nail art magazines! There are leopard prints on a nude base (Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #4 as the base, then #32 for the spots and #29 for the outlines), gold glitter accent nail (Orly Gel FX in Luxe) and red hot nails (Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #34). Perfect for CNY, because there’s red, there’s gold, and there’s sexy leopard prints for those of you who don’t want your nails to look too Chinese! Added some gold studs for a bit of glam
