NOTD: CNY Gel Manicure 26th Jan


I was just thinking of whether to match my outfit for CNY to my nail designs or otherwise

Turns out the nails shouldn’t matter after all!

Instead of the normal REDs that everyone’s wearing to suit the festive CNY season
Blue is actually a more HUAT colour for me~
Topping that off, the fishes are supposed to swim in water right (blue)


The original intention was to have KOIs “swimming”
coz “nian nian you yu”
but when i went through my stash of nail art designs, I was left with Goldfishes
So the Goldfish shall replace/or rather symbolize Kois

What colours are involved?

Cobalt Blue : Gelle 177
Jelly Blue Glitter: Gelle 032
Light Jelly Blue Glitter: Gelle 096
Glitter on Middle Finger: Gelle Multi Glitter 008

Brief Guide on Gradation



Blending colours from dark to light 
First, you apply Gelle 177 – always apply the darker shade first
followed by the mid shade of Gelle 032

Blend the difference using a small sponge
or in my case, I used my fingertips to pat right between the 2 colours to blend them before going through the curing LED Lamp

Then apply the lightest blue shade of Gelle 096
& blend in the same way

Other techniques to blend:
– sponge
– fingertips
– Paintbrush with rough bristles (easily available in ART FRIEND)
– Lint Free Wipes



If you’re wondering,
Yes these designs are applied on acrylics which I’ve infilled time and again


Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!
Do note that Vibe will be closed on CNY Day 1 to Day 3
We will see you again on 3rd Feb!

Enjoy your festive holidays!
