CND Shellac Nail Art - Strawberry Smoothie & Glitter Fade

I was just looking through my nail photos as I've created a 'CND Shellac Swatches' page (see the tabs at the top of my homepage) and found this manicure that I did for my sister a few weeks back.

She gets acrylics done (by a salon - not me) on a regular basis (I'm not a fan - natural nails is more my thing) but only plain ones, so she asked me to do a Shellac manicure over the top for her. She loves all my Gosh Nail glitter pots but was really drawn to the Jade Green and Topaz Lavender, so she decided to team them with Shellac Strawberry Smoothie.

I painted all her nails with the Strawberry Smoothie (2 coats) then made two separate glitter pastes out of Shellac Zillionaire and the two Gosh Nail glitters. I created a 'glitter fade' on each nail using the green and then swapped to the lilac for her ring finger. And finally to finish off, we added two diamanté to the thumb in matching green and lilac.

What do you think? Are you a fan of acrylic nail extensions?
