Check Out The Hello Pretty Collection: Gelish Mini Nail Gels even Hello Kitty Would Purr for!
I’m not capable of true nail art. I leave that to the pros. But Gelish delivered some inspiration in the form of nail art suggestions along with six sensational Gelish Minis in their Hello Pretty Collection, inspired by Japanese street art. A take-off on Hello Kitty, the feminine feline herself would be prowled to wear these. So I just had to try something! I didn’t have the right tools (a fine-tipped striper brush is a must have) but even if I did, I don’t think I’d be able to create the flowers and precise blocks of color that enticed me. If you have a steady hand and some patience, you’ll be able to do it easily.
But I do love the individual colors, and they look great just “as-is.” From left to right in my Gelish Mini color swatch photo: Manga-round With Me (bright neon pink-love this for Summer); Look at You, Pink-achu! (bright medium pink); Pop-razzi Pose (clear bright hot pink); Tokyo s Go Go (bright purple), Anime-zing Color! (gorgeous bright plum) and Do You Harjuku? (shiny mint green) .
IT seemed like it would be easy to make three and four petaled flowers with these beautiful colors. Alas, I didn’t have a fine-tipped brush, and without it, what I got is what you see above, a melange of colors, but not a “blossom” among them! Still, it was fun to try. Feel free to snicker at my nail art, but I had a great time trying!
FYI: These are not ordinary nail polishes, they’re Mini Gelish® Color Gels. The gels come in an array of colors, apply like polish, with twist cap and applicator, but are cured in a LED lamp in 30 seconds or in two minutes in traditional UV lamps, just like gels. Gelish® stays on nails for three weeks with no chipping or peeling, and soak completely off in only 15 minutes. To do nails properly with Gelish Minis you need a UV or LED light curing light to dry the polish. If you don’t have one of these lights, the polish will remain sticky and won’t adhere to your nails. So you will need to make an investment before you buy all the cute colors (and there are plenty to choose from. I suggest an inexpensive Gelish curing light from a former advicesisters.com review, check it out!
