it’s been nearly 2 years since i last got a crazy nail design. unheard of, considering i’d gotten a new design every two weeks for a full year straight. but my recent trip to Japan has re-ignited my need for the nail art.
i noticed all the super-polished women rocked beautiful calgel designs, even if it was just a simple gradation! even at the mass drug stores, they had a full section dedicated to nail art:
i chose Studio L for my triumphant return to nail art — mostly because i know & trust the skills of Manami, the owner. i know she can always execute any crazy idea i have — very rare when you’re trying to be creative with your nail art!
despite flipping through all the Nail Venus & Nail Max magazines in the salon, i had my heart set on a white-ish design in anticipation of Spring, so i revived an older design i had done a couple years ago: my marbled white design.
NAIL ART DETAILS:
- calgel base
- PEARL calgel color in a reverse french shape
- took White Matte calgel color to create marbled effect
- add rhinestones, gold micro-beads & turquoise as needed around accent nails. :)
