Nail Art, Gelish Nails.
Classmates and friends have been complimenting A LOT on my neon pink with polka dots gelish nails.
*Gam xia hamida*
I give ALL the credits to Lavishing Me Nails for my pretty nails!
I came to know about something else:
Girls girls, how can you NOT know what Gelish is and what difference is it from normal nail polish?!
Well, actually I don't know about it as well until I got my first gelish manicure done!
*say people, say myself*
Regular nail polish chips off too easily when doing your house chores.
You won't want your beautiful nails to wear off before attending that wedding dinner this weekend!
Gelish STAYS; for up to 3 weeks with minimal chipping off and fading.
It's the 3rd week now and my pink nails are still 100% intact despite after cooking and washing dishes almost everyday, sweeping the floor, showering, exercise, wear my jeans, practise on the Ukelele and all those activities which will RUIN my normal nail polish by now!
No problem eating crabs too!
Right: Regina, myDreamGuy's younger sister.
I love her, a really thoughtful and sensible girl. :)
See how much my nails have grown.
When applying the normal nail polish, you only have to do it with the base coat and then the colour polish that we want. Gelish, however, includes many steps of applying different layers of coating.
Step 1: "Ph Bond" (dehydrates your nails),
Step 2: "Foundation Gel" (applying a base)
Step 3: "Colour"
Step 4: "UV tanning" - The gel nail polish dries immediately with a UV/LED lamp
Step 5: "Top Coat"
My turquoise-coloured nails doing UV Tanning:
This is also why gelish can last up to 3 weeks with minimal chipping or fading of nails! Also, gelish can be applied on to your natural nails without causing the damage of your nails due to acrylics.
Best of all, you leave the nail saloon with your nails COMPLETELY dry and ready to dip into your wallets and bags to look for your items, unlike the common scene of avoiding staining your new nails when you do normal nail polish.
Normal Nail Polish takes up to a few hours to dry.
Gelish dries up in 10 MINUTES.
I did pedicure as well.
FOR THE FIRST TIME.
I never allow myself to do pedicure due to sensitive toes and fungus infection on my big toes.
I like what I've done; to see my toes smiling at me prettily. :)
Okie, time to see pretty nails!
Ta-dah, My pastel blue floral manicure ready for my BDD's wedding day!
The floral prints are nail stickers.
On a personal advice, I think Lavishing me specialise in nail stickers pasting and pattern designs.
Opt for the bling-blings, polka dots, ribbons, crystals, shapes and patterns for your nail art.
Actually, I like the turquoise plain nails too :)
WOHOOOO Polka dots and neon-pink coloured nails are my current favourite!
Here's my Twinkle focusing on dotting my nails one by one.
Shhhhh… she's very focus now.
She did these nails for me in time for my Sydney trip~
This is the nail-artist behind all my pretty nails.
She's got at least a decade's experience doing manicure and pedicure.
Meet Evangeline aka Twinkle.
My fun-loving Twinkle always makes me laugh and happy.
The kind of simple, joyous friendship to have.
She pronounces 'onions' as 'iron',
'always' as 'ong-mueys'
and says every other thing that can make me laugh until I get tummy aches!
Thank you for taking care of my nails more than I do, Twinkle!
