My Work: Shimmering Natural Nails With Handpainted Roses

Today's post is my most recent work.  My mum suffers from thin and splitting nails.  She's been wearing the more sheer Shellac shades for a while now which is protecting them for her so when it came time to change it up for her I decided to go with something a little different.  You did read that correctly, I did decide to do something different as she just lets me do what I want providing it's not black!

This time I decided to apply a layer of CND Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel for the first time for her, underneath her Shellac as her thumb needs a little something extra for strength and I decided that her other nails would benefit from it as well.

Over the CND Brisa Lite Smoothing Gel is CND Shellac in Beau with Lecente Stardust Collection in 'Neptune.'  I then used CND Shellac in Wild Fire and Lush Tropics to paint the roses on her ring finger, finishing with a top coat.

US Nail Haul

I got back from Florida on Saturday morning so now that I have had a chance to sort out my suitcases I can show you what I bought from Sally's Beauty Supply and other stores for nails.  For those of you who love Bath & Body Works I have already uploaded a Candle Haul here.

Nail Of The Day: Cherry Apple Nails

I've had something in my mind for my nails for a little while so when I returned back from Florida I was keen to remove my Minnie and Mickey nails to make my thoughts actually happen.  The truth is, I'm unsure if I've drawn a very big cherry or a juicy apple but either way, I'm pleased!

I applied CND Shellac in Black Pool to all nails apart from the ring finger which I painted in Cream Puff.  I then apply the discontinued Shellac shade, Mother Of Pearl over my index and ring finger, if you don't have this then you could sprinkle a little glitter or an additive like Sizzling Sands over it.  My index finger has Cheeky Plate B on it in white and I drew the cherry apple with Red Baroness, Cream Puff, Lush Tropics, Faux Fur and Blackpool.
