The Gel Mani is fairly new to the nail world. It takes the use of UV lights to harden and create a long lasting look. It also incorporates a special clear polish that is applied first and in between coats. I had my first gel mani at the Nail Boutique in Brooklyn. I felt pampered and picked a deep blue color with specks of glitter. It kinda reminds me of outer space. Thats my mani there…excuse the mess in the background. It was a long day.
I tried this one out myself. I love the added affect of the beading. I did all my nails but I think this is cute on one nail per hand or even applied in a design. The Ciate brand has also been a leading seller and coined the Caviar nail term. They sell it at Sephora’s nationwide.
The velvet manicure is also another new comer. It looks like a soft furry polish. Honesty I’m not sure how long this manicure lasts before you start shedding. Guess I’ll have to try it and see. I heard rave reviews about the Ciate brand but there are other inexpensive alternates if you decide to do it yourself
I always liked that added shine on my nails but after seeing the matte manicure definitely think this is a much try manicure. Its edgy, gorgeous in black and super sexy.
Pointed Vamp Manicure
I’m not a huge fan of the vamp nails for myself since I wear my natural nails but a lot of celebs are rocking this look. Rihanna pulls the look off and looks fab as always. More than a fashion statement…it’s a weapon. LOL Men better watch out. This brings a whole new meaning to Claw your eyes out!! Keep ya shades on bruh!
