Nail Design of the Day - Gelish Silver Fade with Black and White Design

Here is the latest set of Gelish design nails I am currently wearing:

 I wanted a design that matched any colour scheme, was a little different and - as I had a creamy colour last time I missed my 'little bit of bling' so I just had to base the design around the bling that I love.
I know this next 3 weeks is going to probably be as busy as the last 3 weeks so I might not get time to keep changing my nail design for a while so wanted something where the cuticle growth wasnt so obvious.  I know that Gelish Semi Permanent Gel Polish would give me the 3 week wear with no chips and extra strength - so this what I ended up with.

So - what do you guys think? 

The thumb has the same black and white swirl design on it too - ideal for me to see when I am typing on my I-phone  as it is my thumb that gets all the exercise there.  So ideal to remind me what a fab set of nail designs I have.

Apologies to you all

Hi guys.

Sorry I havent post very much this last few weeks.  Business has been so busy that I have actually seen more clients for treatments this last few weeks than I have seen for a long long time - so a good reason to not blog I suppose, but have missed spreading the world of Beauty with you all.

All those clients with MYscara'd lashes ans Gelish and Shellac fingers have done me proud!

Hopefully things will be back to normal now x x x

Guest Blog on summer Nail Trends - by Aleya

To add variety to the blog, today we have a guest blog post by Aleya who is a blog writer for Manhattan Beauty School - Hair Design Institute.  I hope you enjoy. 

Summer Nail Trends:

Normally, when summer was rolling around you would start seeing a lot of women wearing pink, coral or marshmallow colored nail polish. This summer things have gotten a lot more fun, colorful and innovative. Here are some summer nail trends that you should check out.

Blue- Probably the most popular of all of the solid color nail polishes, blue is definitely a color that you want to try out. Just about any shade is allowed so take your pick.

Coral- Welcome the feeling of summer and feel like you’re going on vacation with coral nail polish. One of the best things about coral is that it looks great on the hands and feet.

Lilac- A soft alternative to blue polish. Lilac polish is most often seen as a matte color and not a sparkly one.

Metallic Greys- Silver and grey were very strong during the spring and have carried on to the summer. There’s a big variety to choose from so that you can find one that suits your personality.

Nudes- The best way to wear a nude polish is to pick one that is darker than your skin tone so that you can tell the difference between your skin and polish.

Cracking Nail Art- Pick a brightly colored base such as gold or royal purple and use black or another color to go over it. This design looks great on long and short nails.

Polka Dots- Combine two or more colors to create a fun polka dot design on your nails.

Artsy French Manicure- While the traditional French manicure will always be stylish, take it up a notch by adding a floral design to it. You can also use bright colors rather than the traditional ones to make it more fun.

Sparkle- Polish that has sparkles and glitter in it gives your nails a youthful look. It’s a bit difficult to remove, but it’s well worth it.
