The Nail Files – Weekly Link up NOTD

Hello! Thanks for checking out my NOTD! I’d love to take a look at your blog, so feel free to leave a comment or send me a note or tweet!
I’m absolutely obsessed with gel nails. My latest mani is my take on a pic tutorial from Gelish mini’s Facebook page.
The colors I used are Gelish Sheek White and Gelish My Favorite Accessory. The trick to getting the bubble dots, is to put a drop of the top coat sealant on (I used a dotting tool) and cure before you do the top coat all over and again cure with the led light.
I think it’s a great way to do something different without doing nail art. I am terrible at nail art(my hands are too shaky), and I am jealous of those of you that have such beautiful and unique manis! One thing I would like to attempt next is an ombre/gradient effect, and I’m also wondering if I can use tape for a design of some sort with gels.

What’s your favorite gel brand or color? Have you done anything unusual with your gel manicure? I’d love to hear!
Have a great Friday!
