Anniina's Nails

I did my friend Anniina's nails for Lumous. I had never done gel nails to anyone else than my self, so it was really exciting to get to try my skills! I think the nails came out really nice and Anniina liked them :)


Anniina chose oval shaped nails with light turquoise glitter tips. These were my second glitter nails ever, and the glitter sure is a pain in the bottom to file smooth on the edges! Anniina filed the nail tips to shape herself and did some of the work with the glitter too. The tips were originally stiletto tips, but were cut down. The glitter was regular craft glitter, the wet gel on top of the nail was just dipped in glitter and then the unruly glitter particles gently padded on the nail and away from the edges. The glitter was coated with another gel layer and a top coat.

    1. Thank you! They were really quite easy to make, only filing the little glitter scraps that stick out of the nail takes time :)

    1. Thanks! It isn't that hard to work on your own nails, just takes some practice and time. Just make sure you choose tips that are the same size as your nails, I tend to choose too small tips and a little of my own nail shows afterwards.
