Gel Polish Gel Polish Swatches Swatches

Gelish Gossip Girl

Hi all! This week I have been lazy and wearing a very simple manicure featuring Gelish Gossip Girl, Gelish Arctic Freeze and water decals.

Gelish Gossip Girl

Gelish Gossip Girl is a fuchsia pink gel polish with pearl finish. On the swatches I’m wearing two thin coats with top coat. The application was great- no shrinkage etc.

On my accent nails I am wearing two coats of Gelish in Arctic Freeze and water decals (code BLE1710) that I purchased from here.

Water decals are a nice short cut for detailed nail art when you don’t have time or the wish to do freehand nail art. I think using water decals is even easier than stamping sometimes :D They do tend to look a bit ‘printed’ (in the macro shot). It looks fine looking from normal distance tho ;)

    Can you please walk me through applying a water decal in a gel polish mani? I understand how to actually apply the decals, I just can’t figure out when to apply them, know what I mean? Before top coat? Remove tacky layer? Aaaaargh!!!

      Sure- prep nail as usually then base coat, colour, wipe tacky layer off, apply water decal and then top coat and wipe tacky layer again ;)

        Thanks!
