I've been playing around with the two new Illamasqua shades Nomad and Stance (reviewed separately here) and I've created a zig zag manicure. I really, really, really(!) liked the manicure and I'm kind of proud of it :) The colours create nice contrast and go well together. Stance over Nomad is not as vibrant fuchsia as when applied alone but in this case I don't mind. So how I did this manicure?
I've applied two coats of Nomad first. Then I've applied one coat of Seche Vite Topcoat to make it dry and hard fast. Then I've used paper tape stripes which I cut with hobby zig zag scissors. I painted the first nail with Stance and removed the paper tap straight after. Next I repeated this process with the rest of the nails and when the Stance dried properly I've applied one coat of Seche Vite topcoat.
