WHAT I’M WEARING: Chelsea O’Connor, Nails By Chelsea

We want to see what you’re wearing on your nails!

Chelsea O’Connor, of Nails By Chelsea, wears a bold look seeing bright pink hues and a white diamond feature nail teamed with embellishments and lashings of glitter.

“I created this design using Pink-a-holic, which is my all time favourite pink, from Glam and Glits acrylic systems at Nail Tech Network. I wanted a simple but eye catching smile line, and I encapsulated loose glitters and fairy flakes over the pink to make the design come together. For the accent ‘ring finger’, I applied a very thin white acrylic base and completely covered it in individual reflective diamond glitter pieces. I held these in place with a gel top coat, flash curing in between until the nail was fully covered. I then fully encapsulated in clear acrylic. Finally, I finished with some of my favourite crystals from Nail Tech Network.

“I created these for New Year and wanted something that best suited my personality. Bright and bold is definitely something that describes myself so that’s the inspiration behind these.

“What I love most about this look has got to be the white diamond signature nail. I feel it ties the design together nicely and it’s something different. I love the effect it gives and encapsulating is my favourite thing to do.”
