Hello lovelies,

 

Today's nail art and tutorial have been waiting in my 'Unpublished' folder since summer last year and I finally got to editing it. I really like this floral pattern and I've already used it once in this holo manicure. It is easy to do as it's just one type of petal and it looks so elegant!

I have used Dazzle Dry Passion Purple (reviewed here) as a base colour and white acrylic paint for the flowers. The last picture shows the manicure with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Lights holographic glitter topper but no topcoat so it's a bit gritty...I don't know what I was thinking lol.

 

Here's how to create this manicure:

 

 

 

So I hope you liked the post and tutorial and don't forget to tag me if you recreate it, I love seeing your manicures ;)

Hello lovelies,

I'm still experimenting with the Shattered Stars polishes from the new Illamasqua Glamore collection and today I have a studded gradient design. I've heard that the Illamasqua girls were doing gradients with the polishes at the Illamasqua blogger event. I didn't see them but I got inspired by the idea and created this...

I have used Illamasqua Trilliant as a base colour and then using the nail polish brush with just a bit of polish I painted on the gradient tips using Marquise. As the last step I've applied studs from Born Pretty Store (you can use LUHH10 discount code).

 

If you've missed a review of the new Illamasqua polishes, check it out here. I've also done another textured nail art with Marquise here.

 

So what do you think? Do you like the combination of texture, gradient and studs? How else would you wear the Illamasqua Shattered Stars trio?

 

Have a lovely day x
