My, Myself-ie and I

S&M 6 August 2017

As we enter the final weeks of summer 2017, I felt some neon pink nails were in order. This is Gelish Me, Myself-ie and I, from the Selfie collection, with some hand-painted nail art. Some nails are topped with All That Glitters Is Gold from the original Gelish Trends collection. I used black and white acrylic paints, a striping brush and a dotting tool to paint the design. This design was done on enhancements (tips) done with Gelish Dip, and not only do they look pretty good but they’re holding up very well!

Check out how beautifully all the colors work together in this collection:

Here’s a photo of my entire Gelish Mini Selfie collection. I rarely buy the mini sizes any more, but decided to purchased them in the smaller size for this collection because neons don’t see a lot of use from my current clients.

This summer I’m loving the corals and pinks in this collection. What about you? What’s your favorite Selfie color?

On these nails are Gelish Holy Cow-girl!, from the Urban Cowgirl Collection, over a base of Moroccan Nights.  The gold glitter toppers are All That Glitters Is Gold layered with Twinkle.  In the photo below you can see that I stamped with Meet the King on the pointer and middle finger nails.  The stamping didn’t turn out as clearly as I’d hoped, but might have worked better if I’d stamped on a darker base color.S&M-19-September-2015

The embellishments are from the Born Pretty Store. This photo was taken after about 5 days of wear and, as you can see,  these flat back gold rounds lost almost all their color.This began on day #2, actually, and progressed over the week with normal wear and tear.
