A few from March

I’m now only 4 months behind! Here are a few from March.

These nails were created after Cath’s husband sent a pic of what they’d like on her nails. Cath has The Gel Bottle Builder in a Bottle on her natural nails. These nails were created with Black Gel polish, Gold pigment, gold glitter and hand painted clock faces.

February

Catching up on February! I did a Hard Gel Conversion course this month with Francesca Gomm of F.G. Studio and Academy in Plymouth and brushed up on E-filing, One stroke  painting,  and had a real Nail Play Weekend. Lots of glitters and pigments, paints,  swapped ideas and had a few treatments. Have to mention the Boob Buster, a fab treatment and I can’t believe that it worked. Its so good I’m doing the course next month! Read more here

One Stroke Christmas Cakes

Charity Christmas Cakes – Painted with One stroke technique

Back in November I agreed to decorate 2 cakes for Christmas for a a Devon Hospital Charity. My client Cath’s husband Tom has made 13 cakes and has decorated 11 of them beautifully. Cath and I had spoken about the One stroke wedding cake I painted last year so I agreed to decorate 2 of the cakes for charity.

To begin – the bare cakes

Ready to start. The bare cakes

Ready to start. The bare cakes

I played around a little on card before I committed brush to cake. Using powdered food colouring pigments and alcohol I painted both cakes slightly different to each other. I painted an assortment of Poinsettia, holly, ivy and stylised Christmas trees aided by a glass of wine or two.

Work in progress. It’s hard not to rest on the icing and squash it in.

These cakes are FULL of fruit. I had them on a small turntable which made painting them much easier. The leaves and petals were painted using the One Stroke method which makes painting quick and easy. Details are added after the main leaves are painted. I used a variety of flat brushes, angled brushes and fine detail brushes and kept to a mainly Red and green palate.

Tom decorated 11 of his cakes but decided he’d like to learn how to paint them with One Stroke so he has had his first lesson. Watch out next year for his decorated cakes!

Susie’s Nail Art

Floral Design Hand Painted Custom Nail Art – Susie Edwards

Susie’s always loved Shellac Hot Chillis, and being a florist, began having hand painted flower nail art on accent nails. Over the years these have progressed to ladybirds, robins, toadstools and even a painting of her little dog Nutty. One Stroke poppies, pansies, seasonal designs with holly, ivy, Halloween designs and her favourite classic Dior Half Moons which she used to practice in the sixties, also being a model for the Dior School.

With reinforcement over her natural nails and regular IBX treatments Susie’s nails have remained strong and healthy and her nail art is a talking point wherever she goes!

Susie was off on a holiday and wanted a reminder of her little dog Nutty. I painted a few samples first before attempting it on her nails. Remembrance Day was also coming up so I did a One Stroke poppy on her right hand accent fingernail.
