If you have yet to lay eyes on our Speckled Nail Varnishes then we are here to show you how you can go from ‘nail zero’ to ‘nail hero’ in a matter of minutes. Launched in January of 2013, these polishes were part of our I’mperfection Collection which celebrates your perfect imperfections;

“So show off your freckles. Make beauty spots more beautiful.
Shine a light on your birthmarks. And be proud of your scars.
Because life isn’t about finding yourself, life is about
celebrating who you really are.”

Each Nail Varnish contains a mix of small and large flecks of black glitter which mimic the appearance of freckled skin and the fragile shells of eggs. With five shades to choose from, there is a shade for all, take a look below for suggestions on how to wear these shades and gather some Easter inspiration!

– Do I still need a top coat?

Yes you can seal with a Top Coat to aid durability and increase shine. We also recommend using a base coat to even the surface of nails before applying.

– My nails are short, will it suit me?

Absolutely! This is great for short nails as nail art can often be hard to do on a smaller space, our speckled nail varnishes give the appearance of nail art without the fuss.

– What else can I do with these polishes?

Check out below some designs for inspiration!
