Nail Art Society – California Dreaming

Monday, 3 February 2014 - 9 Comments

I just got back today from a perfect weekend getaway with the boyfriend in The Ardennes! We had a lovely stay celebrating our 5th anniversary, enjoyed some beautiful sunny days and took some great pictures! Anyway, today I’m sharing my Nail Art Society California Dreaming look! This kit features a gorgeous Spring collection shade by Jessica cosmetics. Even though it’s not spring, it never hurts to dream, right?! That’s what this kit is all about!

The Nail Art Society California Dreaming kit includes:

  • Jessica nail polish in Tangerine Dreamz
  • 2 large 3D Japanese nail art bows
  • Joy Me self-adhesive rhinestones
  • Bag with 2mm nail art Pearls
  • Orange wood stick for easy application of the gems

The kit came in a really cute drawstring bag with the NAS logo printed on top. I really love details like that! It also included a card (created by yours truly) with a step-by-step tutorial, created by manicurist Sheila Monaus. Sheila also created the nail art featured in the Nail Art Society video accompanying this kit! There’s a super cute behind-the-scenes video too.

This is the look I created with the California Dreaming kit! It’s a very feminine and sparkly kit. I’m obsessed with the Japanese 3D bows! On my ring finger I added one of the Joy Me stickers. They are a little tricky to use, so make sure to grab some tweezers and gently push/slide the sticker off. On my pointer and pinkie I created a nude half moon with a pearl outline. Sparkly!

The Jessica nail polish in Tangerine Dreamz was part of the Summer 2012 Gelato Mio collection. A lovely pastel collection! I’m always so impressed with these Jessica shades. The formulas are a real pleasure to work with. This one was no exception. I used three thin coats for flawless coverage. I love how it’s a muted orange, perfect for all skin tones!
