Meet my litte piggies!

It was about time I redid my toenails, and now since it is getting warmer and almost spring, I thought it would be a great idea to so.

In the video I start off by sanitizing the toes. Then I push back my cuticles.
With a 100/180 file I take away the shine of the toenails. (180 side)
Then I dust away any dust.
Then I prime the toenails with natural nail primer from IBD.

I apply my first coat of clear builder gel from IBD, going around the cuticles area with a rosewood stick
and let that cure in the U.V. light for 2 minutes

Then I shake out some neon pink glitter and purple glitter onto a tray.
I put on a thin coat of clear builder gel from IBD and then with a clean brush I start patting on the pink glitter at the free edge fading it up.
With another clean brush I pick up some of that gorgeous sparkling purple glitter and place that on the cuticle area, fading it downwards, towards the free edge.
Going around the cuticle are with a rosewood stick and letting that cure for 2 minutes.
Did that to all 10 toes.

Then I go in with my last coat of clear builder gel from IBD.
The first coat goes on thin, and the second coat (without curing in between) goes on a bit thicker to creat a smooth surface.
We don't need a nice arch or curve on the toenails, just a shiny even surface.
Going around the cuticle area with a rosewood stick one more time, and letting that cure for 3 minutes.
When all 10 are done, I take a lint free wipe with non acetone nail polish remover
 and remove the tacky layer.

Then I'm filing the sidewalls and the free edge, remove dust and apply ORLY glosser (clear nail polish)
And that's it!


  1. can you use acrylic on your toenails?

    1. awesome, i'm looking forward to doing mine in the summer :) flip flops at the ready :)

  2. Hey! Saw this on YouTube and had to check your blog =] just wondered how you remove the IBD gel and glitter when you want to change your toe nails? Meg x

    1. thank you :)
      if you want to change the design, you have to file off the old gel and glitter, and then apply new gel ^^

    2. Okie doke =] I tried to do it on my fingernails last night but it didn't work =[ didn't use gel though coz not got any at the moment, so just used clear polish. You are amazing at nails! X
