I’ve just introduced the new Akzentz Luxio range but I’m sure many of you have yet to try Gelish as well, right?
Gel manicures are the rage now as it has zero dry time, so there’s no smudge or chip, stays shiny, lasts up to 3 weeks(or more)! That’s great news for people who love their nail art(like me) and want them to last as long as possible!
Well, if you have, here’s a chance to win Felicious Nails Cash Vouchers for redeeming a set of gel manicure with art*!!!!
*Gelish manicure is $30, so you get $20 worth of art! If you choose Akzentz manicure, you’ll have top-up for the art.
What are the prizes?
There are 5 prizes to be given away:
Grand prize: $50 Felicious Nails Cash Voucher

Introducing Akzentz Luxio…
The 100% gel polish!!!! No solvents=healthy nails! No more drying of the nail bed!
I currently have 24 colors. That’s all that’s available in Singapore now, looking forward to the Spring colors that are launching in March.
Pardon me for the many pictures. I own an IPhone 4, not the 4S, and I don’t have a digital camera, so bear with me for the pictures-I just want you to have a clearer view of the swatches. The fabulous nudes, gorgeous pinks, reds, purple and one shimmer blue. I was awed repeatedly while swatching!
Great news for those with weak, dry nails, Luxio is100% gel, the perfect match for nails that need recovering from dryness/weakness!
I’m currently wearing Vixen, a deep vampiry purple! And i’m loving the shine! Luxio has much higher shine than Gelish I would say!
These 24 colors will be available for HOUSE-CALL SERVICES ONLY! Sorry! Exclusive for now!
Luxio will be available for services at Ying’s place, at $65-single color manicure(no promotional rate of $50). Colors to be pre-selected I will only bring the color you need.)
I’m testing the polish but I am sure it will perform very well as Akzentz is known for high quality gel products! (My manicurist in a quality salon I used to visit before I was a nail technician myself, used the full range of Akzentz color and traditional gel, I had very lasting extensions then because of Akzentz.)
Why would you need Luxio?
Gelish and other gel polishes contain solvents which may dry nail up with frequent continued wear. This is where Luxio comes in, you can wear Luxio once every few months in place of Gelish to prevent nails from drying out!
Want to give the luxurious Akzentz Luxio a try? It’s $60 a set, promotional price at $50.
Notice on Price: Cost of Luxio is much higher than Gelish. The top and base coat is about 2X the price of Gelish’s, color coat costs more too. Unfortunately I am unable to use this with Gelish base and top coat as it defeats the aim of using a 100% gel polish-the full system is stronger, hence the ability to protect.)
Besides the cost, the application requires more effort and an increased level of skill as it isn’t the same viscosity as Gelish.
*Enquiry of discounts will not be entertained. Nail p***** chain charges Gelish at $121, removal at $25. Please feel free to visit them if you feel more comfortable with the setting and price.
Another challenge I loved!
WanYan wanted a similar design to the Boarding School design from Ying’s blog.
She didn’t want the king and queen and opted for horizontal stripes instead. They looked a little plain so I suggested adding studs to each line(inspired by Micheal Jackson’s famous military/band costume).
Here’s the outcome:
You can see by the number of pictures how much I love this set! ❤
*All art done with Gelish!
Sindy requested for a set of color block nails in this design(again from Copythatcopycat):
Unfortunately I didn’t have chrome/foil colored gel polish, so we had to settle on Sheek White instead.
I found the design really classical, here’s my black and white version:
Gelish design done on pre-existing extensions done elsewhere. I did a little fill and reshaping where needed.
What do you think?
The pictures say it all-rose garden, the subtle, demure look:
Ever since Ying brought back those awesome stickers from Japan, customers have been asking for it. This customer knew she wanted the gorgeous roses but left the design to me.
She wanted one simple flower on each thumb on a simplified background of Ying’s nail art design, so she picked Gelish Make a Difference to match Gelish Forever Beauty. I love it!
I am so glad I am able to attend the Beauty Asia trade show with my mentor Ying and fellow nail enthusiast Shona!
The first day of the trade show I got these:
Then I left and couldn’t soon stop thinking about the Gelish 18g as it was at an irresistible price. I convinced my sweet boyfriend to loan me the money for the items I deemed “compulsory” to buy and promised to be on a spending ban from today onwards.
And here’s my loots:
After spending that much, i definitely had to think of how to fill in the deep hole I dug.
So here are some items i’d like to put on sale-I really need to start earning back to repay the bank loan, pretty please?
Item 1: “Better” 12W LED lamp $80
Item 2: Artistic Color Gloss 30W LED lamp $400
Original price $450 from supplier
Less than 3 months old
Same built as Gelish 6g LED lamp except in gorgeous black shimmer
Cure time is 10, 20 and 30 seconds also with sensor.
Great for someone who wants a professional lamp.
Both items are self-collect only unless you want to pay extra for shipping a bulky item. No negotiation please, need the money for loan repayment. Thank you for your understanding.

Haggling will not be entertained.
This set of nails belongs to a sweet lady who wanted something “toned-down”, not that loud and eye-catching as she has an appointment that requires that.
Way before I was done with the previous client, she picked out this design, which originally had gold round flakes at the dots. We wanted to bring the loud and glam down a notch so we chose to use similar colors from the abstract french design instead.
Here’s the outcome:
I found that the dots in 4s make them look like abstract oriental prints/flowers of the past, don’t they?
The usual nail posts aside, my poor baby Fluffy has to be hospitalized for two days for observation and IV drip as he puked for two days. Please pray for his safe and healthy return with me please?
I was going to do my Lush Cosmetics hand and nail product reviews but I couldn’t stop thinking of this set of nail art I did for Angel. I know this isn’t anything out of this world but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ribbons.
Angel came for her first Gelish manicure ever, it’s also nails she wanted for her birthday. She knew she wanted sparrows but didn’t know what else to mix them with. We discussed and decided on hearts and ribbons.
Here’s the result:
And these, my favorite of the entire set, Ribbon frames:
I honestly wished my left hand could draw these ribbons for my right. Sigh. Gonna practice using the left hand more so that I can have gorgeous freehand nail art on myself.
Signing off ladies! Goodnight!
