Watercolour nail art

These nails are done using a mixture of gel polishes then sweeping a fan brush over before curing to give this effect. I framed the nails with smokey plum and also dragged a little of this over the nail to tie it all in

ibd just gel semi precious stone effect with 24K gold leaf

I used a base of ibd just gel in turtle bay layered with Sargasso blue. I then used viking winter to create texture and added some gold leaf to the sticky layer before sealing with the top coat.

ibd just gel neon tribal nail art

Bright nails I did on myself there are black pyramid studs and all my super neon ibd just gel polishes.
They are custom blend purple on my thumb, infinitely curious, parasol, solar rays and custom blend green (the pink and green are more vibrant in person)

I can't wear neons too well because of my skin tone but adding the black made them much more wearable for me :D

IBD just gel Bridal Nails

This is a nail trial I did for a client.She wanted a french manicure with some sparkle but not rhinestones as they would take away from her beautiful engagement ring. We used a white iridescent glitter on the tips to make them pop and the effect was so pretty - I'm not sure the picture really captures it.

IBD just gel vintage roses

This design is a favorite with my clients I've done it twice this week alone :D It is perfect because it's so pretty and looks great. 

I used ibd just gel in Hot Springs for the base colour and Juliette and Gerber Daisy for the roses and Jupiter Blue for the leaves which you probably can't see. 
Everyone always says they get a lot of compliments on their nails when they have this which is so lovely :D

ibd just gel

 It's so hard to find swatches of ibd just gel online I thought i would put this one on for my fellow techs so they can spy the colours :D It's also a fun way to wear colours when you can't just pick one.

Pinkies - Rocco
Ring - She's Blushing
Middle - Raindrops
index - My Babe
Thumb - Jupiter blue

She's blushing, Raindrops and Jupiter are probably the most requested colours I have (parasol could add to that in the summer)

Neon french manicure

This is an ibd just gel manicure after 2 weeks :D as you can see it grows out well and keeps it's shine.
I thought this was a good way to wear the neon yellow if your not too keen on the whole nail. The colours are ibd just gel black lava and solar rays. Just gel polish can last up to 3 weeks if cared for correctly (i.e. you don't grate them with a cheese grater no polish can withstand that :D)
I charge £22 for this manicure which includes free removal after 3 weeks
