Something a little different from me today... I am showing you some gel nails that I created on my little sister, Laura. These were designed to match a stunning dress, that just so happens to be the backdrop to these pictures, which Laura wore to a wedding a few weeks ago.
Firstly let me slightly apologise for the picture quality but if any of you have tried to capture the pure beauty of China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy on camera you will know its a near on impossible task!
For these gel nails we started with three thin coats of IBD Cashmere Blush, a very pale cream polish. Worn alone it can be a little frustrating as you can usually still see a nail line, however used as the base for nail art its absolutely ideal.
Using FFF I stamped each nail with an image from one of my favourite stamping plates - Pueen 49. The picture below is taken in natural light with no flash so although it is not colour accurate you can at least see the detail on the nail a little better.
To finish these off I applied one coat of IBD Top Coat and cured it for two minutes. Voila!
