I've always wanted to get 3D nails done but I don't know of anywhere that does it in Seattle. While I was in San Francisco over the weekend I learned that you can get them done at Angelic Pretty every Sunday! As if they had to make my first AP shop experience any better!
I got something a little subdued opting for only four 3D bows total. I was afraid it may be hard to do anything with them but in reality, I barely notice them.
The process involved dipping my nails in a pot of glitter (the girl had about 15+ glitter colors to choose from!) and sealing it with a UV gel. I was going to do full glitter nails but decided last minute on half french.
The bows were formed using a tiny brush to mold little blobs of colored acrylic right on my nails and were decorated with some tiny glue on rhinestones!
Silly me, I assumed there were only 20 or so designs she could do but when I arrived I was handed a stack of nail art magazines to pick from! Turns out if you can dream it up, you can get it done!
The nails are $30 plus more per design per nail. I payed $30 plus $3 for each bow.
If you live in the bay area call Angelic Pretty on Kearny and book an appointment! You'll have the best nails on the block!

    Sooo when I come see SF I should 1. meet you and 2. get my nails did! I love how you did frenchies with glitter. Those bows don't look like they'd snag at all.
