I adore this beautiful shimmering bronze colour from Gelish’s “The Great Ice-Scape” Winter 2016 collection. I love that they added a beautiful rich copper tone to the collection especially for the clients who are fed up with Christmas reds and winter blues.
“Ice Queen Anyone?”
It’s such a shame the camera just doesn’t do this shade justice. Note to self I must buy a camera and not use my phone. Having said that it might make a few clients shy if I whip out a canon to take photos of their nails.
I don’t cut my clients cuticles (Unless they are really long and scraggly), I use a LCN treatment to push back and a cotton bud to remove any excess cuticle stuck to the nail. After a few treatments you start to notice that the cuticles grow less thick. Nothing is nicer than neatly manicured nails.
*Pro tip* Always keep a nourishing nail oil by your bed, before you sleep just rub on your finger tips around the cuticle area. This will stop them getting dry and since you are sleeping it gives a full (hopefully) 8 hours to penetrate. Plus under the cuticle is where the magic happens so you will start to produce stronger less brittle nails.
Is this a colour that you would wear? I definitely would! I think the colour is actually quite subtle and easy to wear despite that it’s a shimmer. I also think that it would be beautiful on most skintypes.
