My New Doctor Who Nails!!!

So I may not be packed for Comic Con yet (costumes are done… we leave in about 2 hours… that’s plenty of time, right?) but I was sure to get my nails ready in time! Doctor Who nails! My nails will be flailing about on Sunday morning in Hall H during the Doctor Who panel.  Now if only I could get into that elusive Doctor Who Tumblr Meetup… 

This might be my favorite nail art set yet - all hand painted by Yoko at Atlas Studio on natural nails with calgel.

So excited for geek week!!!

Ravishing Red, oldie but goodie back to glam up summer at Hello Beautiful Salon, 218 Bedford Ave between N5th & N4th inside the mini mall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 11249. Still accepting appointments for July! Call 718-387-4732 or email me jes.tong@gmail.com for appointments!

Calgel

This is the only Gel I will use on my clients. I got certified to use this when  I went to school. I just contacted the seller I buy it from, and it seriously just got more expensive! It’s one of those things that REALLY is “you get what you pay for” because honestly Calgel is amazing. I used nobility in school, and that Gel SUCKED! It doesn’t sit well and it bubbles! 10g of Calgel is $65.00 and I’m tempted just to get the 25g but that’s $138.00. Once I get a figure on how much “gel” I will actually use, I’ll have to reconsider the pricing but for now I’m okay with my price list. Golden rule make sure to include cost of supplies.

A Few of My Favorite Blings
When the nail breaks,
When the cuticle stings,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite blings,
And then I don’t feel so bad…

My latest manicure by Atlas Studio. 
Black tips with silver glitter and super blingy rhinestone bows on the ring fingers.
It’s a fun, elegant look that’s not too crazy.
