Blue and silver french mani ...

I had to add blue tips , practicing with the M 19 Plate . I think I am getting a little bit better. I am totally loving my gel nails , so far so good .
I know it's only been two days , but with the other nails I usually already have Problems and with light less gel no problems at all. The nails came out smooth and neat ... Have a Great Memorial Day Everyone !

Memorial day designs .

I have two designs for you today . The nails on the right are quick dip acrylic and the nails on the left are ASP light less gel . I decided to do a Memorial day design . The design on the right did not come out like I had hoped it was kind of sloppy and I broke some nails :( ...Lately I have not been too impressed with Quick Dip Nails . So before deciding if I should just give up on trying to do my own nails I did some research and decided to try ASP light less gel nails . They were so easy and came out smooth , all I had to do was file them a lil and than buff them , they came super smooth , So far they seem to be working pretty well.
Hope you all have a Great memorial day !!

Gold with purple flowers

I did a purple and gold mani for my Los Angeles Lakers !!! They have been doing pretty good.
For the base I used Salley hansen salon manicure in Guilty Pleasure and topped it off with a stamp from IP M31 in purple . Hope you like it , I'm a little late with the pics , this is after three days !

Shooting star purple and silver.

Four of my nails broke , so I did four new nails and filled the others with my Acrylic dip system . I think they came out a lo better than the last set, as I said practice makes perfect. However they are not as perfect as I would like them to be.
So as some of you know I have become a distributor for Konad , and I had my first nail party this weekend , where I discovered how to use the sponge kit . The sponge kit is awesome creates an air brush look and it's so easy to use.
I decided to do a purple and silver mani , (gold wasn't showing up :( ) I use used Sally Hansen pronto purple and use Kondad Special polish in silver . I sponge silver on the tips and than stamped the star design from IP M33.

Mothers day nails/french tip with flowers

I hope you all had a great Mother's day . Mine was very nice , left the husband at home and took my son , my Mom and my twin sister to Down Town Disney . We ate at the Rain forest cafe , which I was not too impressed with . I expected more out of Disney .....the atmosphere of the restaurant was Okay as well , the workers seemed bothered . The restaurant is beautifully decorated though , with huge fish tanks and huge fish ...My son love them . However he was not to fond of the fake animals and rain forest show they have every 20 minutes , the lights flicker on and off and they play the sound of thunder . My poor baby did not like it at all. We did have a great time walking around though .

Now on to my Mani . I did a french manicure with flowers , I used Konad special white polish for the stamps , I used M 19 (still need some practice) and M 36. For the base I used OPI for sephora , Non fat soy , half caff. I love using this color for the base for my french manicures it looks so natural . I did my own acrylics again , sorry there a bit messy , need more practice on that too.
