This weekend I had planned to post about the Models Own Hypergels which I bought over a week ago. However, I just can't get them to work! I've tried multiple times now, and am getting frustrated. They just don't dry on me! I was going to try again tonight but then I couldn't be bothered, and instead wanted to use my very pretty and lovely Barry M Silk polishes.
I decided to try a quilted nails look, in a skittle! I paired each Silk up with a similar coloured creme, so here we have Blossom, with Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, Heather with Rimmel Pro Ultra Violet, Meadow with China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On, and Mist with Blueberry Ice Cream.
This is how I did it. Lots of striping tape and a steady hand. I've seen this idea on a few blogs recently, but the best tutorial I've seen is by The PolishAholic.
And these are the results! I'm SO chuffed with these! I'm really pleased with how they came out. I like the contrast between the matte Silk underneath and the glossy creme, and I like the raised pattern.
I'm really excited about this design! I'm thinking there are so many ways it could work - highly contrasting colours like black and red, or black and white, or the same colour but matte & shiny, or with a really shiny holo polish underneath, or with a gradient underneath...
What do you think?
