I am here with a nail art tutorial slightly later in the week than normal, however I wanted to save myself for the launch of new sale lines online, so I could show you how I would use some of the nail varnishes in the sale to create a nail art look! This week I have created tartan nail art using Nail Varnish in Ruthless, Scorn and Spartan, which are all currently £5 online!
As always I have put together a step-by-step guide as to how I created the look, so lets jump into it…
Taking Nail Varnish in Ruthless, paint this all over the nails as your base colour. I chose to paint two coats onto my nails to create a really opaque base.
Next taking Scorn on a thin nail art brush add on horizontal and vertical lines, varying the thickness of the lines over the nail.
Next taking Spartan, again on a thin nail art tool, add one horizontal and one vertical line in the gaps.
If you wish to leave the nails as they are, in order to show the matte black of scorn skip this step, however I painted Top Coat over all my nails to give them a shine!
I hope you enjoyed this tartan nail art post! If you recreate this look yourself, or create any nail art using Illamasqua Nail Varnish be sure to share a picture with us! #Illamasqua on Instagram, @Illamasqua on Twitter or post a photo on our Facebook wall.
Happy nail art-ing! Sam xx
