Manicure Monday: 13th October 2014

Hey everyone!

So another Monday is here and another Mani Monday post is too! Here at HQ we love seeing the nail designs that YOU create so share with us using #Illamasqua on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. If you need some inspiration to get you started on your nail-arting then look no further…

Kierra used Jo’mina and Nomad as a base for these nail wraps and we love how they look. If you’re feeling brave and want to try some free hand designing we’d suggest Precision Ink in Abyss for recreating the black lining details.

Jillian used firm fave Jo’mina for the base of this leopard print mani. For the fine glitter detailing and black outlines try Precision Inks in Wisdom and Abyss before sealing with a Top Coat.

Our newest shade, Melange, was selected for Danny‘s manicure. She used a gold shade for her swirl design, a great choice as it really complements the gold glitter in Melange. If you want to try this effect we’d suggest using Nail Varnish in Trillant.

Swarm was chosen to top some of Nail-Loopy’s nails this week. Recreate the bumble-bee looking stripes using Boosh and Gamma. Use a Top Coat on these nails to achieve a glossy finish like this one.

Have a great week,
