Inspired by Illamasqua

Surely you all have seen the video of Illamasqua on Human Funda-mehndi nail art. Somehow unconsciously I got my inspiration from it and decided to partly recreat it, adjusting to my nail shape and the polishes I have in my stash.





Since I don't own any Illamasqua polishes *sigh*, I used Essie Greenport as a base and Wet'nWild Buffy The Violet Slayer for the dots.

For those still wondering what I am talking about here's the video:

    1. Спасибо :) Да, на меня прямо-таки обрушилось весеннее настроение, я красила ногти тремя зелеными подряд. Гринпорт мне очень нравится, несмотря на то, что у меня миллион бирюзовых и мятных - этот для меня особенный :)

  6. I was thinking about making something like this, but instead of dots I was planning to use octagonal glitter.
    I really like your idea and you always have perfect nails!

    Have a nice day!

    1. Thanks! You are right, although I loved the initial version of Illamasqua, I had to modify it to suit my squared shape. The one they are showing is perfect for almond-shaped nails though.

    1. Oh, thank you! It's because I fail to make proper "swatches with bottles" :)
