For this week's edition of the weekly nail art challenge (WNAC) I co-host on Instagram along with Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of MissBellaTracey, the theme is Glitz n Glam and the prompt is Quilted! Somewhat of a departure from my usual order of things (wtf is quilting anyways), but in the end a gradient worked itself into the mani somehow, as with some shimmer and holo glitter soooooo... that's the Glitz part?
I watched Tartofraises' amazing French witchcraft magic 3D quilted nails video for immediate inspiration and pretty much just drooled and then cried cause I had no idea what was happening even though I speak French. I looked for North American ways of achieving this look and the next best thing was found in a video by Kelli Marissa - dental floss, who knew those actually had a use!
