If you’ve arrived here looking for Serenity Nails, well you’ve reached the right site! But, OMG, I’ve changed!
As with everything, the time to evolve has arrived (or is that just a Pokemon thing?).
No really, I am SO excited (and a bit nervous) to introduce to you my new name, Cured By Chris. And to top it off, if you haven’t noticed already, I have a whole, fancy new site to go along with my name change!
No, I haven’t begun producing hams, nor am I claiming to be able to heal your illness. What I do cure is gel! I guess I can try and cure some nail sadness too, maybe make those talons a little happier. We shall see!
For quite a long time now I have wanted to take my blog in some different directions. My focus has hugely been on Australian indie nail polish on here for almost three years, but I have always wanted to share more with you guys too, and this opportunity will offer me the freedom to do that! I’ll still have plenty of polish on here, lots of indies. I’ll also have the ability to show you lots of cool gel related tidbits (I am a nail tech after all), and something else I’m hugely passionate about, hand and nail care.
You’ll be able to catch some snippets of my life in here too. Just a flash every now and then. Some cool images of things I’m loving and whatnot.
In celebration of this momentous day, I’ve made some nails to match my site! And of course, they’re gel too. My product of choice, Bio Sculpture Gel, however any gel polish or nail polish is good for this look.
I’ve used a colour called Lilac Lullaby, a beautiful lilac creme. I decided to pair it with some chrome pigment on my middle finger and thumb. On Bio Sculpture, it doesn’t chrome up as much, especially when viewed in the sunlight, but it does produce a super shiny, awesome finish.
Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate my lavender plants which, despite being constantly blown around in the cold Winter winds, are managing to stay alive for me!
I wanted to try and be a little creative so I did some simple black stamping over the base of each nail. I used Uber Chic Beauty Collection 7-02 for this design.
I hope you’ll enjoy everything. It was a huge decision for me to do this, and then follow through and get to work on it. I can’t go any further without thanking my helpful voice of reason, Emily from Very Emily, who has been my advisor through this whole change.
So, you must tell me what you think! Do you like the new blog design? Are you excited to see new things on here and a fresh style to go with it? If you have any suggestions, let me know in the comment section below!
