The polishes featured in this teal holo gradient number are none other than ILNP holo's, including the darker teal 'Fall Semester' which is from their 2014 fall collection (stay tuned for swatches!). I painted on the random swirls with a Chinese sumi brush I got from Karen aka @sharingvu on Instagram. Check out this tutorial for my tips on how to get the best stroke results with these brushes (and most other brushes!).
In the spirit of being fancy like all them French nail bloggeuses, here's some more pics of my attempt at being fancy with all them props and stuff!
My sequin clothes from back in my cool days actually come in handy again! Hurray for recycled slutty sequined outfits!
And back to the usual order of photography pour moi:
How pretty is this turquoise holo glitter?!? Tracey from @missbellatracey made it especially for me cause I'm a turquoise and holo and glitter freak.
She made me this iridescent white one too!! Check out full swatches here.
ILNP Fall Semester (new 2014 fall collection), Rehab (2014 summer collection), and Music Box.
Spot both glitters!
