Posting my quick guide to gel nails again for those who missed it. I’ve had some questions lately about it.
So I’ve tried sephora and CND brand gel colors but I want some new ones… Glitter ones too maybe.
Have any of you tried any other brands?
Here’s my rainy day gel nail how-to.

Lots of shellac questions lately.

I do my nails except for when i have acrylics.
I usually use shellac which you can find on amazon. As far as making them neat and tidy you really just need a steady hand and practice.
If your nails are looking clumpy your polish might be old or you might be laying it on too thick. Use thinner coats and let them dry a little in between layers.

I’ve never used gelish so i can’t be sure but i’m guessing its similar.
Try shellac next time you get your nails done and see if its comparable, i’d be interested to know too :)
I do it myself and its so easy to work with and cure with the UV light.
I just ordered this new pack of shellac colors. I’m so glad they are bringing out fun colors now instead of the basic classic colors.
Comes with the colors: Zillionaire - Studio White - Moonlight & Roses - Hotski to Tchotchke - Purple Purple - Asphalt
Personally i think black always looks good, especially with the high shine of the shellac!
If you wanted a color though i’d say one of the deep reds like decadence or fedora would be pretty or a deep purple like rock royalty.
My favorite shellac nude color is cocoa!
