New Year, New Decade, NEW SERIES! I’m bringing back nail art posts because I’m a nail art addict and you guys seem to love it too. I shared these gold glitter star nails on Instagram, but I wanted to share it on the blog too so you can pin this mani inspiration for later! (Speaking of pinning I have a whole Nail Inspiration Pinterest Board if you’re looking for more mani inspo!)
Back to these gold glitter star nails…I’ve gotten a lot of questions about them since posting them on Instagram so I wanted to share ALL the details! I’ve been getting UV Gel (some salons call it hard gel) for about a year now. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a thicker gel that goes on top of your real nails, it’s cured under a UV light and then gel color is applied on top. Unlike a regular gel manicure you don’t soak these off when you’re ready for a new manicure, your nail tech will use the electric file to buff off the color and a little bit of the UV Gel and another coat is applied to each nail to “fill” the regrowth. On average I get my nails done every 4 weeks!
For this particular manicure Nail Spa Elmsford filled my UV gel and then we used this gold glitter star gel polish to finish! It took 3 coats of gel polish to get this look and Kelly made sure to separate the stars in the polish so they spread out evenly on each nail!
I’m going to make these posts a monthly thing so if you have any questions about UV gel leave me a comment or send me a message and I’ll make sure to answer them in my next post! And if you find any nail art inspiration that you think I’d like make sure to send it my way also!
