Hey everyone!

I just finished my nails in preparation for attending a Phillies game this weekend Smiley  I just wanted to share!



I did them using Gelish polishes, which are very similar to Shellac.  If you are getting Shellac or Gelish nails done at the salon all the time, I recommend investing in an LED curing lamp and trying it at home!  Took some practice, but within 3 manicures I've got the process down!

Annnnyway, on to my nails!

I used Gelish "Ooba Ooba Blue" for the majority of my nails, but created the baseballs using "Sheek White" and "Hot Rod Red"



The Phillies logo came from a temporary tattoo set I got on Amazon.  Just transfer to the nail like you would onto skin!  Then a topcoat of Gelish "Top it off".  I also used two coats of "Structure" for thickness and strength, because I have super bendy nails.


Hope you like it!


Any suggestions for future attempts? I'm pretty new at doing my own nails with Gelish, and  I think my baseballs could be cleaner looking.
