Gelish: Kimono x Sha Nail Pro Japan

Gelish: Kimono x Sha Nail Pro Japan

I usually don’t post what’s on my nails because a few customers usually end up picking the design on my nails for their own mani, so I’d just take pictures of their nails instead of mine (the poses always look so awkward when you’re taking pics of your own nails). However, although many customers liked … Continue reading

Gel Mani: Sexy Señorita

Serene showed me two designs done with Recue stickers (also a Japanese brand known for their gorgeous airbrush effect designs) and I adapted them to create this set for her: As her nails were of uneven length and she wanted to keep them as long as possible, I didn’t cut them all down to the … Continue reading

Bridal Package: Pretty in Purple

Bridal Package: Pretty in Purple

I usually don’t blog about the designs done for my bridal package customers because they tend to be the same classic designs, but Fidelia opted for something a little different! Firstly, the colour scheme was purple instead of the usual white, nude, or pink. She also didn’t want the usual embossed flowers, but opted for … Continue reading

Gel Mani: Paddle Pop Cut Outs

Gel Mani: Paddle Pop Cut Outs

I really like today’s design because it is something different! There’s the cut out effect – instead of painting a design, I paint to create a gap such that the design looks like it’s been cut out – and there’s also a blending of colours to create a paddle pop effect. Love it! This was … Continue reading

Gel Mani: Pokeballs!

Gel Mani: Pokeballs!

Joei asked for Pokeballs to be painted on her nails, and she Googled the pictures for my reference. It was a tedious task because of the many colours needed and the fact that I had to cure them all separately, but they turned out really cute. I am totally not listing the colours used because … Continue reading
