It's been a while... + Autumn Ombre Acrylic Nails

What's up nail fiends? It's been such a long time since I sat down to write a blog post. Life definitely got crap the last year but today I'm finally back and will be posting more often. I just wanted to say thank you for sticking around and I can't wait to share with you guys my passion for nails again.

So... speaking of nails, today I'm sharing with you my first Autumn nail set. I must admit I was freaking proud of this set. So let's begin..

After natural nail prep. 

So of course the start of any nail design starts with nail prep. In the last few months I've been trying different products to achieve this and I finally feel like I have found a way that definitely minimises lifting and let's face it there's nothing worse. So once I have pushed back the cuticle, removed dead skin, trimmed & filed its time for the acrylic base. With extensions you of course have sculpting and tips to choose from. For the purposes of this set i sculpted. 

Sculpted acrylic base.

So you know I'd never leave you guys hanging. You can check out my full prep and acrylic base tutorial right here. Instead of me blabbing forever I filmed the process and talk you guys through my dry manicure routine and share my must have products. Check it out below.

Now that we have our base covered, can we talk about how excited I am for Autumn nail art? Nothing is prettier than the colours of fall. Bonus it's closer to Halloween (insert major happy dance). It's honestly by far my favourite season simply because you can definitely broaden your skills and do funky nails and no one cares.

So onto my first Autumn acrylic set. I'll start this by saying I've only been training in acrylic nails professionally for around 5 months. I'm absolutely loving it. With that said this set was by far my favourite one I've done yet.

Mint Ombre Acrylic Nails 

For this set I used the gorgeous Hepburn by Ink London Nails, it's the most beautiful tiffany mint with a subtle shimmer. Needless to say I freaking adore it. Then we have Sydney a beautiful cover powder by Ink with these 2 I did ombre nails on 2 fingers and french tips on 2 fingers. Then for the 4d roses I used a few Glitterbels acrylic powders and Swarovski  Crystals to make a crystal cluster. I got those products from a recent Bluestreak Crystals haul  which will be up on my channel soon. Then I bedazzled the nails with a few glitters from smileys glitter store. Here's the tutorial for this set. In this video I show you everything from start to finish.

So my friends if you've stayed to the end I appreciate it and I really hope you enjoyed today's post. Definitely stay tuned for upcoming posts as I delve back into the world of blogging.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Love Khylie xx
