Manicure Monday: 7th April 2014

We are back with Manicure Monday to bring to you some of our favourite nail art looks and manicures shared with us on social media. We love seeing all your looks so please keep sharing them with us! Details about how to share your images can be found later on in this post.


The first look we love comes from the very talented Kierra at BattyLacquer on Instagram. Here Kierra used our Nail Varnish in DWS to create the grey base on her nails. We love how Kierra paired DWS with the super neat detailing and sparkly gems to create this look!

Another look we have been loving was shared with us by Nail_loopy on Instagram. She used Nail Varnish in Nomad, to create the green base within her ombre effect and topped off the nail with Nail Varnish in Swarm. We love this nail art and all wish we could do an ombre effect as effectively as this!

Nail Loopy also used our Nail Varnish in Swarm to literally create a swarm…of bees! This ingenious design includes one nail with a beautiful beehive design on it. We’re buzzing with excitement over this one.


The fourth look is this amazing nail art from Lucy’s Stash! We love how Lucy used our Shattered Star Nail Varnish in Fire Rose and Marquise to create this stripy look! We think this look is perfect to add a pop of colour and shimmer to your nails this spring!



Finally, we have a seasonal design from Margaret at M_a_tom on Instagram who is seeing rain clouds forming over Brisbane, Australia. She is ready with her nails pained with our Nail Varnish in Raindrops complemented by Throb, Force (we recommend Cameo as Force has now been discontinued), Kink and Jo’Mina.

Happy Nail Art-ing, Sam xx
