What is a Gelly Sandwich you ask? It’s when you use regular Nail Polish between layers of Gelish Base and Top Coat. This technique is easy to do and saves you from having to buy expensive Gelish polishes – just keep using your favourite regular polishes!

Braided Seashell Bun

I tried something really funky today! I love french braiding hair, but today I decided to try something a bit different. I started the french braid on the top right side of the head, then brought the braid down diagonally across the back to the lower left side. Then I changed directed of the braid to go straight to the right at the back of the neck. Once all the hair was in the braid, I took the straight part of the braid and wrapped it into a circle in the space under the french braid and pinned it into place! No product used here, just some bobby pins to keep it up and a headband.
