IBS Las Vegas: Orly Gel FX with Trina Ngo

Trina Ngo is an educator for Orly Beauty and was the first place winner of the Soak-off Gel Manicure nail competition during the International Beauty Show Las Vegas. (She also placed third in the same competition at Premiere Orlando Beauty Show a week earlier.) She created the classic French design on my nail pictured above using Orly's Gel FX gel nail lacquer with colors White Tips and Rose-Colored Glasses. I have never before seen such thin application of a soak-off gel product. (The photo above was taken after a week of wear.) It has been well over a month since the show and the White Tips color blends in perfectly with my natural nail, there is no lifting, and I'm still amazed at how thinly she applied the two coats of product.

If my idea of design is too tame for you, here are a few more of Trina's more extravagant and colorful nail art designs using Orly's Gel FX nail lacquers.
