WHAT I’M WEARING: Lauren Holmes, Nailed It Beauty

We want to see what you’re wearing on your nails!
Lauren Holmes, of Nailed It Beauty, wanted to celebrate her industry in the best way she knew – with nails, of course!
“On the 17th of February, I will have been self employed running Nailed It Beauty for four years,” Lauren beams. “It has been the best decision I have made in my life so far! I love any excuse for some themed nail art and what better theme than to celebrate four years in business?
“To create the look, I used shades from Gelish’s new collection, Fables & Fairytales – Magic Within, Once Upon a Mani, Not so Prince Charming, Let Your Hair Down and the Antique Top Coat.
“To create the look I started off with two coats of Antique Coat covering the full nail, making sure the coats were very thin. Then using Magic Within. I started slightly further away from my cuticle to create the reverse French look on all my nails minus my ring fingers. Once painted but before curing I used a dotting tool where needed to perfect the edges of the second colour. I also did two coats of this colour to ensure full coverage.
“For my ring finger, I painted a coat a white shade in the shape of a ‘4’ with a Gelish Mini Striper Brush then cured to create a bold outline. I then painted over it again with a thin coat of Magic Within to tie it in with my other nails. Once that was cured I used three of the other Fables & Fairytales colours to paint on sprinkles. I finished it off by painting on a flame to make it look like a candle. ”
