Sculpt gel test: Christmas Nails

Hello loves!

Well, the time has come! I'm all packed up and ready to go. :)

Just wanted to post up a last entry before tomorrow's flight.

A month ago, I bought my own gel nail set complete with UV light, clear gel, color gels and rhinestones and all that good stuff. My first attempt with gel was very long and tedious process. For those who are thinking of trying it out, make sure you read all the instructions and prep well or else it'll be a very messy experience. That first time took 2 hours and it was only a glitter gradient design.

Then I purchased a sculpt gel set this past weekend and decided to try it out. Sculpt gel is basically for creating 3-D sculptures on your fingers. I made a little winter design for before I go back home. Total: 2.5 hours. yessah.

Right hand:

The heart got messed up and the snowman came out obese.


Too much eggnog for this guy.


Left hand:


It's funny because I'm actually left-handed but this side came out way nicer than the other side. Must be because I started with my right side first. Trial and error. :P



Nice shaped snowman. :3


If I don't have time, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hope you spend it with the ones you care about most.


Toodles,

Monica-Ai
