Notes for brides-to-be ~~
If you are able to keep your nails long, opt for gelish manicure.
If not able to, you may opt for gel extension.
Gel are not harmful to nails, as long as they are properly removed.  Damage nails are cause by peeling them off by force or engaged an inexperience manicurists to over-file your nails.

Enjoy your wedding, be a beautiful bride, have beautiful nails ^.^

How is gel extension done?

Gel extension can be done in 2 methods. One method is using a sticker nail form, which is more time consuming and yet the result is not as good as acrylic nails.  Another method is using tips as shown below, which is also the method I prefer.

It's very amusing looking before the tips are trimmed to the proper length, heehee....

The tips are then trim to the length you require and buff till they look like your own nails.

A few layers of gel will be applied over the nails to secure the tips, each layer, nails have to be bake cure under a UV lamp.

Once done, it's super glossy as if it's wet, when it's actually fully dry.  That's the beauty of gel nails.  This is a set of bridal nails with lace sticker embedded inside the gel.  I'll get request for this design every now and then.

This is another set of extension with purple and bluish tips.  The camera not able to capture the 2 colors.  This set is longer than the bridal set above.  How does this lady type with such long nails?  She told me she bought a rubber keyboard which is flat without any gaps, so no chance of her nails getting trap hur hur........

Our gel extension is $70, additional gel color add $10, gel french $15.

New blog for Precious Nail

As I had been using Freewebs for more than 6 years,  I was very reluctant to "migrate" to blogspot.  But they had been giving me endless problems which left me no choice.  So........ sigh..........

Many old pics are still here ~~

Will be filling up this new blog with lots of fabulous nail pics, I promise!
