Wedding nail design using "gel island"

One of the nail magazines is running a wedding nails article in February and wondered if I could supply some nail designs. With the help of Bob as the photographer, plus Jenni and Frida as models we managed to create a series of photo's in a few days.

The first design below is a variation of the "putty technique" that I invented for the Valentine nails in a previous post. I call this method the "gel island" technique.

Both techniques are methods used to produce different shaped holes in the nails that can either be left open or form a transparent window - without using an electric file. In this design I used transparent gel with a hint of glitter. You can click on any image to make them bigger.

The second design uses standard gel and acrylic techniques:
