Turtle or tortoise?
hope you're all well! I've been naughty and bought some HEX Nail Jewellery but thanks to the low price of the charms it wasn't a big dent in my budget ;)
For this manicure I have used Zoya Giovanna (reviewed here), Zoya Kerry, make up sponge, striping tape and HEX charm Turtle no.2.
I started with two coats of Zoya Giovanna and topcoat. Once the topcoat dried I have applied striping tape in two diagonal directions creating the mesh/diamond shape. Then I used a makeup sponge and dabbed Zoya Kerry over the striping tape creating a gradient. Once I was happy with the amount of gold I removed the striping tape and repeated the process on the next nail. As a final step I applied topcoat and placed the turtle charm on the ring finger.
You can get Zoya polishes at Zoya.com if you live in US. In UK you can get them at Amazon, Amarya or on Ebay. But I'm sure there are more places online that sell Zoya.
HEX charms are sold at their official website.
Have a lovely day!
