I do love me some simple looking nails and lately, I have been obsessed with the Baby Boomer Nails. They basically look like your natural nails just better! Who wouldn’t love that?
I do my Baby Boomer Nails with Gel polish but you can easily use normal nail polish. All you need is a base coat, a white polish, a pinkish nude, a top coat and most importantly a sponge.
Striplac – Twin Coat, Striplac – Babyboomer White, Striplac – Babyboomer Pink
All my gel polishes are from Alessandro. Their strip lac collection is amazing, you basically apply their gel polish just like normal nail varnish – the difference is only to cure it under a LED-lamp. The manicure lasts you about 2 weeks and after that, you can peel the gel off or if it still sticks to your nails soak it off with some acetone.
But now, let’s start with the tutorial for our Baby Boomer Nails.
2. Time to apply your base coat. Be careful not to touch any skin. If you do so, you can easily get rid of it with a wooden stick or toothpick – don’t use any wipes as you wanna avoid getting any fuss stuck in your gel. Then cure it under the lamp for 1 min.
If you, like me, have a slightly milky white you wanna repeat this step to get a more white looking tip.
5. All that is left to do, is to add the top coat and another 60 sec under the LED-lamp and you are done!
I’m not gonna lie, it does take you anything from 30 min to an hour to create the Baby Boomer Nails but once you are done they are ready to use! No drying time, no worries about smudging or anything else – you are good to go.
It’s such a nice manicure and it doesn’t matter if you have short nails or long ones. It looks good on all of them. I choose to do a gel manicure simply because they last ages and give my nails some extra strength! And if you apply and take them off correctly you don’t damage your natural nails at all! In the first pic are my nails just after I removed my last gel manicure and as you can see they look just fine and healthy.
