Essence better than gel nails top sealer

As I’m in tape-mani now, I wanted to try some design which is really hard without masking and one of it is this. When I saw this on nail salon’s website I was in love, but in same time I gave up to do it cause it was gel nail. But probably tapes will help me for the argyle patterns…? Well, I tryed, and these are the result that I got.

I think result is not that bad. Of course it’s not crispy design as gel nail made by professionals, though still not so bad. But how I constructed the pattern is pretty crazy and not sophisticated, I want to improve the method and re-do by another way. Try and error! Why not??

But Argyle french itself looks pretty cute, it’s a bit too cute for work but…still cute! Actually my husband loved this mani, I have to do it again at least for him ;)

アーガイルフレンチです。何しよっかなーどんなデザインがいっかなーとあちこち見ていたときに一目惚れしまして、ジェルだよこれポリじゃ無理やろ思いつつ無理やり手持ちのいろいろを駆使して作り上げた次第です。いや大変だったー。でも遠目で見る分には十分耐え得る感じの出来にはなったかなあと思っています。ほんっとに大変だったからもう(少なくとも今回やってみたやり方では)やりたくないけどね!
以下反省点:
・一度塗りOKなポリでもバックがばっきり白だと結構透ける→白を最初に塗るんじゃなくてポリシートなどで白部分を作るとかした方が確実キレイ
・テープをはがす方向、相当考えないとにじんで大変なことに→山が出来ている方向に一気にはがす方がキレイなようです
・2色やるならもう少し違う色にしましょう→ピンクをもう少し薄いのにするとか……いうか何でこの配色にしちゃったんだろう
ところでこれうちのダンナに超好評でした。オフするときも「取っちゃうの?キレイなのに(´・ω・`)もったいないよ(´・ω・`)」で宥めるのが大変でした(not誇張)。そんなうちのダンナは男性には珍しくはっきりめの色を好む人です。いわゆるニュアンスカラーは「キレイじゃない(`・ω・´)」と一刀両断。まあお陰で爪色をいろいろ楽しめて楽しいんですけれども。

  1. I think it turned out really cute. What is the gold polish you used? And what's your opinion about your new essie white polish?

    1. Golden liner was Akzents direct's one that I bought via Amazon. It's quick-dry and bit tricky, but glitter is super-fine so good for fine glitter line.
      And essie's blanc...I'm happy with this! Still a bit streaky but much easier formula than cheap one. Only the problem for me is their new brush...I don't like wide brush so much.
