Hello Kitty & My Melody LOVE*

Posted by Jen Ko at 5:35 PM 3 comments Links to this post
New sets, mostly acrylic! I haven't done nails for quiet a long time and now that I'm getting appointments after appointments I am dead beat tired!! I know it doesn't seem like a lot of work but my eyes feel so dry and my back & shoulders are in so much pain. I feel so old now, and my friend joked that it was because I haven't done real labor for awhile. The results still leave me very happy!

Look!! it's hello kitty & my melody! :D (Sculptrue Nails/Acrylic)

It was my first time makng hello kitty, I never get Hello Kitty requested but finally this great customer gave me the chance. I thought Melody would be easier since I've done her plenty of times, but Melody was giving me a hard time with her eyes that day!!

Too bad I decided for this customer to fill up every finger since she had a special day... but if you look carefully there were seashells!!

This set was done on my coworker's hands.

The problem: She has odd hands/fingers, I've never met anyone where my forms don't stick on. Maybe it has something to do with her glands, and on top of that her finger nails flicked upwards. I'm practicing on her in case I get customers like her in the future. Not happy with the results, I need to practice on her more.

Initially we didn't think the pink was going to be that pink since I haven't used my new gel from bio sculpture yet

:) K. always makes me laugh!

I love her cause she just lets me do whatever I want. That blinged up finger was her idea not mine!! :) What are friends for??

This is usually how messy I am at the end of a nail appointment. I just keep putting stuff on the table and forgetting to cap everything. After the customer leaves, guess who helps me clean?? Not me of course!! :D hahaha

A random shot I took while in Downtown LA. Is graffiti art or vandalism? This is art.
