“Good Morning  everyone! It’s a beautiful day! The sun is shining, the tank is clean……. THE TANK IS CLEAN!”- Peachy, Finding Nemo.

I chose this quote, because from here on out, my professional life just changed. I am now officially a member of Tracy Vinson’s The Moblie Manicurist Virtual Design Team! We are a team of nail professionals, hand picked by the Ladybug herself and assembled from across the country, tasked with taking samples given to us from leading nail industry companies, using our mind and coming up with an out of the box way to use their given product. New month, new project. *Nail Professionals, check the details below for a Light Elegance giveaway!*

January’s sponsor is Light Elegance. I have been familiar with their products as a nail professional and was excited to use them out of the gate.

What an adventure it has already been! Let me introduce you to The Undead Snow Queen!

I wanted my Light Elegance/Virtual Design Team project to reflect my personality. I am very much a girl with edge and can always surprise you……She is just that.

Layers of Perfect White, cured in multiple layers create her bust. As nail professionals know, white is biggest curing issue we face. I swear I thought I was never going to be able to layer enough with for stability. Cool Gel in clear gave me the background for the winter blue ombré wonderland.

The ombré was achieved with blending of Russian Navy, Alpine Snow and Can’t Find My Czechbook Gelcolor by OPI, followed by the snowflake stamp from Wildflowers Stamping plate #3, the larger pieces of LE’s Big Diamond rounding out the flakes.

Her flowing mane is accented by Sexy Red Stilettos and Big Diamond, both a color from LE in hard gel and P+ soak off gel polish. The delicate cameo frame compliments her bold, stark lines and winter palette, with the simple, white ribbon rounding out her edges.

I pushed myself beyond boundaries I never thought I could with this piece. I will create her again, as I have some new ideas and color schemes in my head. I have even thought about selling the pieces. She will be on display at Venus Spa Salon Beauty in Southern Pines, NC.
