Wanted to update you on my NexGen nails. I am still going every two weeks to get fresh nails. There is nothing like a fresh set of nails. My nail guru Diana, asked me if I ever thought of not polishing my nails and just leaving them naked. I looked at her and said, "why would I do that?" With a smile on my face. She was serious. I again said, now why would I do that? I just know all 200 of my readers would be devastated if I didn't have new manis for you to see. But I also told her that if I were to ever stop polishing, I would do the classic pink and white, instead of the sheer pink I do now.
My NexGen post is still my top post of all time. I actually got a comment from someone asking if NexGen was thicker than Gelish. I had to google Gelish and saw that that is only gel polish, not a gel dip technique. When I answered her comment, I explained the difference. NexGen is a brand of gel dip powder that is activated with a liquid, sort of along the lines of acrylics, but not nearly as thick and not as bad for your nails. I told her if you have someone who knows what they're doing, it's really no thicker than several coats of nail polish.
Here is my latest set of nails. Now remember, these are my nails, they just have a protective layer of gel on top so they don't peel and break.
You can see my real nails through the sheer pink color of the gel powder I choose to use so it doesn't interfere with my polish color. But you can choose any color so you wouldn't even have to polish your nails. Diana actually had to cut down length, as I was getting into talon land! HAHAH! I have now had these for six months. I will never go back.
All right. Let's get to the silly bottle shot for today.
This is Chaos and Crocodiles Operation Vegas. This was actually not in the Secret Agent set, but was a limited edition released with the set.
I did a full mani with Vegas, the stupid sun decided to hide for this part. I had to resort to flash.
Again, you have a one coater, although I always do two, and an amazingly strong linear holo presence in this as well.
Next, I took inspiration from an Instagram account called m_a_tom and added my own holo twist to it. Oh and the sun came out for this part!
I cannot get enough of this brand. This is the fourth one of the eleven I got. Stay tuned for more!
Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
