Purple Dotted Gradient Nail Art Using Illamasqua And Color Club

Here is a purple dotted gradient rather than a gradient with dots…

I started with a couple of coats of Secret agent from Color Club, then starting with the darkest colour I added the dots, more at the base of my nail.

The black is Vamp Polish from Eyeko, the other purples are Baptiste and poke both from Illamasqua.

I finished it off with a coat of fast dry topcoat from color club, the color club top coat dried quickly but it’s not as shiny as Seche Vite and I have noticed that the polish chips quite a bit faster and tends to drag the polish a bit more :/


Glittery Galaxy Nails

Here is another first for me! Galaxy Nails! 😀

I used loads of nail polishes for this, I started with a base of Vamp Polish From Eyeko, then using a tiny bit of sponge I added a little bit of Blackened Bleu from Barielle shades and Alias from color club. Blackened Bleu is a lovely black jelly with dark blue and turquoise glitter, Alias is a dark blue jelly with purple duo-chrome glitter, it’s really pretty!

At this point it looked like a patchy gradient, after it had dried I added Gorgeous from sinfulcolors this polish is a bright turquoise metallic with a light gold sheen and secret agent from color club which is a light purple metallic polish. I put a drop of each polish next to each other onto an old plate and picked up both colours with my trusty bit of makeup sponge, and added a tiny bit to each nail.

when it was all dry I used Night Moves from Barielle shades for the stars, and the fine holo glitter is Sparkling silver from no.7

I finished it with a coat of fast dry topcoat from color club.

For this I used Stella from China Glaze, This polish is a dark metallic purple red, and Black from Barry m.

I started with one coat of Stella, then used a sponge to create the gradient, this took two coats, then I used one of the medium sized dotting tools to add the dots, I finished it off with some fast drying topcoat from Color club.

I did have a few issues with the brushes being different sizes, so next time I try this I’ll stick with one brand of polish!

I used Plate Moyou XL Suki Collection 06 and for the base colour I used Black from Barry M, The silvery teal colour that I used for the stamping is Masquerading from color club. Then I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite.

My bottle of Ghoulish Glow from china glaze arrived today! And I couldn’t wait to try it out!

the design for my nails is very similar to the Halloween nails I posted a couple of weeks ago… But with a lot more bats! 😀

For the base gradient I used Secret Agent which is a purple metallic and Masquerading which is a lovely silvery teal, both of these polishes are from color club. I then applied two coats of Ghoulish Glow, In the bottle the polish looks like a pale cream colour, luckily it didn’t affect the base colours too much, it just made them look a little foggy. I used Konad special polish in black for the stamping, then I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.
