I have a very special event to announce today. It has been killing me not to be able to share it with you on Twitter or Instagram as I usually do with sneak peeks of my upcoming posts...
I've teamed up with the amazing Illamasqua team to create a nail art, using 3 of their lacquers, and offer you all the possibility to WIN THEM!!!
Using Stagnate, a purple based taupe creme, Hemlock, a sheer nude with a strong green shimmer and Caress, a soft but highly pigmented baby blue creme, I came up with my first Tribal design ever.
To create this design, I first applied one coat of Hemlock on all of my nails and then used a very thin nail art brush to outline the areas that were meant to be covered with Stagnate. All I had left to do was fill them with Stagnate, quickly add Caress with a dotting tool and draw the Tribal pattern with black.
For the black lines, I could have used nail polish, acrylic paint or a nail art pen but I used a Posca pen.
Yes, you heard that right, a POSCA pen! I bought a good dozen of them early in July and they work so great and are so easy to work with that I've mainly been using them ever since. I will very soon post a tutorial on how to use them as well as a comparison between the different sizes they come in ;-)
And now, the rest of the pictures and the Competition!!!
I really love how all 3 shades complement each other, Stagnate is a really beautiful taupe, Caress a gorgeous baby blue and Hemlock truly outstanding with its taupe/nude base and strong green shimmer.
For you chance to win them all (worth £40.50!) just click on the image below and fill in the form on the Illamasqua website, how simple is that?
Good luck everyone! xx
