I’m a little late posting this, but better late than never, right? :). To celebrate the first day of spring I decided to try one of my new China Glaze Gelaze gel polishes. Re-Fresh Mint is a lovely pastel green that’s opaque in 2 coats however I did have a little shrink back at the cuticles and tips and most annoying, pooling along the side walls, I had to keep flash curing each finger to keep from having a mess around the sides. Michelle over at Manic Talons had a great suggestion, put the bottle in the freezer for a few minutes and it should take care of those issues.
For the acrylic flowers on the accent nail, I tried out the 2 color technique. To do this I first picked up a bead of white and then picked up a bead of purple on top of the white and placed them on the nail and formed the petals. To add more interest I dipped the brush in the monomer and picked up a tiny amount of the purple and placed it where I wanted extra shadowing. I’ll do a video showing how to do this type of flower. The other nails are stamped with CiCi&SiSi #5 plate with Sally Hansen Vigorous Violet.
If you are interested in the Gelaze polishes you can buy them at Sally’s Beauty Supply. I believe they have their BOGO sale on these through the end of March.
