Hello my lovely readers 🙂 How’s everything going?
Today I want to share with you how I do my semi permanent LV inspired nails at home for a very low price. It’s quite easy to do and they last up to three weeks.
For doing my nails I decided to purchase the items from Aliexpress. You have to be very careful with the items that you buy in Aliexpress, but I read several reviews and I didn’t find anything wrong with them. I bought this small lamp of 12W from Aliexpress, its price was only 3€. I bought it because it’s very small and I can keep it anywhere. There are also bigger ones, with more power, that will take less time to dry your nails.
First of all I took care of my cuticles. Then using rubbing alcohol and the microfiber cloth from the image below, I cleaned the surface of the nail. It’s important that you use a cloth or fabric that doesn’t leave any little hairs that could get stack on your nail, for example a cotton pad is not advisable.
Then using the buffer on the image, is this one that I also bought in Aliexpress for 33 cents, I buffed a bit the nails. You have to be very careful in this step, because if you buff too much your nails are going to suffer. This step is to remove any grease the surface of the nail may have, it’s better if you only do it in one way (either from left to right or the other way around). Then with a brush remove the dust and apply alcohol again. Make sure you don’t touch the nails surface with your fingers because it could also leave some grease.
Then I used this nail polish from Aliexpress in the shade 996, it’s price is less than 2€. This nailpolish is one step which means that you don’t have to use base or toapcoat if you don’t want to. I applied three thin layers of nail polish and cure each of the layers for one minute in the lamp. Remember to paint the edge of the nail and to not paint the cuticle.
To add a bit more if glam I decided to add some of this LV stickers that I bought in Aliexpress for 1€, they are in the style D040. It’s very easy to apply them if you use tweezers. Once they were on the nail I painted one layer of this basecoat, cured for one minute and one layer of this topcoat and also cure for one minute.
So this is the final result, I decided to keep them quite simple but you can create more fun designs. I love how this nails look and the price of all the items together is only 8€, so it’s really inexpensive if you want to do them at home.
Do you usually get your nails done? Have you ever tried the designer nails trend?
