This week I thought I would incorporate our valentines collection nail varnish Throb into my nail art look. If you haven’t seen our Im The One Valentines collection yet go and take a look at our scarlet quartet! So as I said Nail Varnish in Throb is part of the collection and is by far my favourite Illamasqua red nail varnish as I love how Throb is a deep toned red. I created this heart nail art look which is great for valentines day so if you want to find out how I created it keep reading!
To begin I painted all nails in two layers of Loella. Loella is the perfect pink to use as a contrast to Throb and great for a valentines feel, however you could also use an alternative shade if you wish.
Next I took Throb on a dotting tool and created the outline of the heart and also a vertical line down the centre of the nail. This will act as a guide for filling in the nail to create the heart design.
Once I completed step two on all nails I took Throb, again on a dotting tool, and filled in the heart on one side of the nail, and also the surrounding area of the heart on the opposite side.
Finally after all nails have dried, paint a layer of top coat onto each nail. This will seal in the nail art and prevent your nails from chipping.
I hope you have enjoyed this nail art look. If you recreate this look yourselves or create any other nail art we would love to see! Share a picture with us through #Illamasqua, @Illamasqua on Twitter or post a photo on our Facebook Wall.
Happy Nail-Arting! Sam xx
