With over 18 years experience in the nail industry, MODERN SALON Artist Connective Member Chloe Reed (@glamnailz210) has done her fair share of stunning nail art. So you can imagine her excitement when she discovers products that make creating unique designs easier, faster, or more fun.
Reed has experimented with all things gelish lately and has found that the brand’s extensive product and tool collection really opens the floodgates to what you can do on a small nail canvas. Speaking of nail polishes, Reed is particularly fond of using Gelish’s Soft gel tips in all different shapes perfect for practicing nail art, experimenting with new techniques and creating finished looks.
Check out some of Reed’s most creative looks with Gelish below, complete with video tutorials.
gold & chain
Reed starts this look with Gelish’s Gilded in Gold shade, emphasizing the richness of the gold with Gelish Chrome Stix in pink opal. She embellishes some of the nails with a stamped texture, some small gold chains and gems for a unique and stylish set. Perfect for sparkling Christmas parties!
Inspired by one of the textures on her stamp plate, Reed creates an ombre reptilian design with a beautiful 3D effect. Chrome Stix gives the base of the look an iridescent finish which makes the pattern really stand out when layered with matte and clear gel.
Ombre Chrome French
This is a take on the visually appealing optical illusion trend sweeping the nail world this year. Reed uses Chrome Stix to add chrome to specific areas, which helps her get that satisfying ombre.
