In this video I’m testing out some gel pot kits from Modelones. These are available on Amazon Prime. I test out the new Solid Cream gels and the Super Platinum gels. Check out the video to see my experience with them and to hear my final thoughts.
I’m using the Gershion Polygel Kit from Amazon Prime. This polygel is perfect for beginners because it’s very easy to work with. I’ve created nails with this kit before using dual forms and nail forms. This time I decided to try out the polygel using nail tips.
Kiara Sky just launched their new In the Nude Collection and I am super excited that I got the chance to try it out. The Nude Collection consists of 9 new nude shades. These colors are available in gel and regular polish.
This designs was done using “Pixie Pink” nude acrylic powder that I finally received for Nuni Torres. I hadn’t really got into details about my last order. What an ordeal it was! Well you all know that I am a huge fan of his work. I also love his nude acrylic powders. He doesn’t sell them all the time. More like 2-3 times a year. So when ever I see that he is selling them, I immediately place an order. I order 2 nude acrylic powders from him; “Pixie Pink” and “Cover Me Nude”. I paid $25 each plus $3 shipping for each bottle. Ridiculous, I know. So two weeks after sending him $59 via paypal. I hadn’t heard anything. Another two weeks go by and still nothing. My text messages, emails, dm’s, everything kept going unanswered. He request that payment is sent through paypal as “friends and family” so he doesn’t have to pay the fees. Which I can understand. I payed that way last time and received my order in a timely manner. So, because I sent the payment that way, I couldn’t dispute the charges! I was finally able to get a response from Nuni two months after placing my order. He informed me that all the packages where shipped out the week before. So, what it looks like to me is he accepts orders and them ships them all that the same time. I mean, he could at informed me of that.
I soaked my previous set off and instead of cutting off my natural nails like I always do, I decided to use the “Pixie Pink” nude and do an acrylic overlay over my natural nails. This technique gives you a very slim and natural shape. I wanted to take a break from the bulkiness of long nails.
Honestly the “Pixie Pink” acrylic powder is not worth what I paid. I was expecting it to have more glitter in it. I ended up putting a glitter polish over it to give me more of the glittery look I was going for. Also, the color wasn’t doing much for me. Not pink enough at all in my opinion. Using my custom blend acrylic would have looked a lot better. But the Sinful Color polish helped greatly. I must say that I love the shape of them. They’re the perfect natural square shape.
I used Beauty Secrets clear acrylic powder to adhere the gold charms and various sized rhinestones for a little embellishment.
Let me know what you think about the acrylic overlay set. And if you want a beautiful nude color for a fraction of the price of Nuni’s click here.
This design was very quick for me do achieve. This is a fill-in of my previous nail design Pink Nude Acrylic Nails w/ Glitter and 3D Flowers. Last time, I did one glitter nail on each hand. But this time around, I filled-in each nail with my pink nude acrylic that I purchased from Nuni Torres of Instagram. So, the glitter nails have this gradient, ombre thing going on!
Here I have prepped my nails and applied my No-lift nails primer. As always, I apply this to each nail and left it dry. Then I re-apply a second coat right before I began laying my acrylic.
I used the Tammy Taylor P3 acrylic powder to make the 3D flowers. If you follow this blog then you would know that I was in love with Tammy Taylor acrylics. I really do love the color, I just had to switch brands of acrylic when doing my full sets. The reason being is that the Tammy Taylor powder sets extremely fast. Leaving my no time to shape my nails the may I life them. But a fast setting powder is perfect for 3D art!
Next I used these gorgeous Princess crown nail charms that I got from Born Pretty Store. (Use coupon code CVEK31 for 10% off!) I used a medium sized bead of acrylic to attached them to both glitter nails. Next I did a little free hand nail art with my LA colors nail paint in color white, then added a few a/b crystals for extra shine.
I put two coats of my Seche Vite topcoat on each nail expect of the nails with the 3D flowers. I wanted that nail to have that extra matte look.

It didn’t take long to get back to my pink nude nails! This time I wanted to add a little embellishments to them. I recently purchased these gold nail charms from ebay and I was really excited to try them out. I think they add the perfect touch to the nails.
I prepped my nails by shaping the nail tips and taking the shine off my natural nails and the nail tips.
I applied a small amount of No-Lift Nails Primer to my natural nail only. I put this on each nail, then one last coat right before I began placing my acrylic. The acrylic powder I used for this design is called Intense Pink and I purchased this from nunis_nails. I truly love the color of this cover pink acrylic. It is so perfect lol. I am currently on the hunt for something similar to this because unfortunately Nuni only sales these sporadically.
Once the acrylic is applied I shaped and buffed. I then applied a coat of my red tinted nail polishNext I adhered these beautiful Gold Nail Charms. I used a small bead of clear acrylic to attach it to my nails.
Lastly I put a top coat on all of my nails…and this is the finished look! I really love how these turned out. I know I say that a lot :). I literally have been drooling over these pictures of the finished look lol. Tell me what you guys think?
