NOTD : Neon Orange Gels & Swallows Nail Art

As you might have already guessed by my past few posts I'm definitely getting into my orange especially where nail products are concerned!

I've featured my friend Sharon's amazing skills with Gelish both here and here. I don't have gels that often, it's more for special occasions or when I feel like treating myself so when I do indulge I like to go for something a little different. I love anything with swallows on and nail art is definitely a top favourite!

I picked up these "Swooping Swallow Nail Decals" from Ebay - for just £1.49 plus 60p postage & packaging they were a total bargain! I was intending to have a cute coral or baby pink but when I spotted this gorgeous neon orange on Sharon's colour wheel it was an instant winner!

The colour from Gelish is called "Tiki Tiki Laranga" and the Swooping Swallow nail decals were water slide transfers so you cut around the swallows and let each one soak in water for a matter of seconds before use, removing the backing with tweezers and applying to the nail.

These would work perfectly on normal polish as well as gel. I think an added bonus with gels are that they last a lot longer without chipping than normal polish - perfect if you're going away or like me your nails sometimes need a little help with growing!

If you're local to Thatcham or Newbury then check out Sharon at Matias Nails on Facebook for treatments available, prices, contact details and more pictures plus any current offers!
