Nail Art with Shellac - Quick and Easy Dot Design

Having had a baby, I find the time to do my nails very short.  The grand nail art designs I have planned in my head never come to fruition as inevitably, the baby cries just as I start!

During an hour window, I managed to remove my previous Shellac, and redo my nails, then managed to do a quick and easy design.

I took my dotting tool, and down the side of each nail put black, purple, silver and white dots of varying sizes and over lapping.  As I was using Shellac I flashed cured the colours for 10 seconds, just to prevent them from running into each other too much.

The final results I think were great, and I have had many complements!!

Do you have any quick and easy designs?

The colours used were 'Cityscape' for the light dove grey base, 'Blackpool', 'Rock Royalty', Cream Puff' and 'Silver Chrome'.  Any colours can be used to create this look.

Thanks for reading,

Shellac 'Hotski to Tchotchke' with 'Zillionaire' glitter!

I love it when a client wants something slightly different, and I was so excited when a new client walked in and asked straight away for the colour I from Shellac that I have used least.

Shellac's Hotski to Tchotchke is a light teal colour, with a shimmer effect.  It is flattering on all skin tones, and looks really great in the summer.  To add to the effect, my client wanted some glitter.  To complement the already silvery shimmer in the teal, I added Zillionaire glitter, which is a holographic type glitter, with varied colours.

What do you think?

Hoping that my clients will continue to use the more unusual colours in the future!

Shellac Iced Cappuccino

Shellac Iced Cappuccino is a great frosted colour.  Your prep needs to be perfect for this colour as any imperfections can be seen being a frosted colour.

Great coverage with 2 coats, and lovely for any time of year! 

Have you used this colour?
