Mani of the Week: Queen Anne & Gel!

queen anne mani

This week features my “transitional” mani to take me from Valentine’s Day and beyond! I was gifted a single pedi pack of this retired Queen Anne, so I made the most of it by cutting it down to fit 6 nails and polishing the rest with gel! I layered a brown gel on top of Jamberry’s Black Cherry to get the perfect shade of dark red currant. Gorgeous!

I also had much better luck using Jamberry’s TruShine system this time! I still don’t like their brush (the bristles are too stiff), but I got the hang of it now. The trick (for me at least) is to use a bit more gel, and hold the brush almost parallel to my nail instead of perpendicular.

I did a really good gel job, so I’m sure these will last a good long while (but I will still probably want to change them in a week!) Hope you had a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Making of a mani! About to cut my pedi pack to fit my finger nails, and my assorted gel bottles.
