Some products received for honest review
Top o’ the afternoon to you, my fantabulous readers! In the past I was sent some polishes from Alchemy Lacquers to review and I did, here and here. I always meant to go back later and do some nail art with them but life being what it is I didn’t get around to it. No time like the present, right? So this year I used them to create my St. Patrick’s Day themed nail art!
To start I needed to create the artistic part. I’m not super fantastic with freehand nail art, but I like to try my hand at it now and then. However, I do not trust myself to freehand directly on my nails. So what’s a girl to do? Why make decals of course!
I used my silicone mat to create two decals. To make a decal you start with a layer of clear polish that you allow to dry completely. Then you can stamp or paint your design onto that polish. Allow the art to dry then paint it over with another layer of clear polish or topcoat and allow to dry completely. Once it’s dry it should lift away easily. I then trimmed out my design with scissors.
The nail art I chose to do was a little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I used the Infinity Collection from Alchemy Lacquers to create the rainbow. I thought it turned out super cute and I 100% admit to being delightedly tickled with how well it came out.
Then I used last year’s St. Patrick’s Day limited edition (sorry it’s not available now, but, at least if you love it you can start searching for it on the secondary market!) from Alchemy Nails – Liquid Luck as my base.
First I used Vynails Celtic Knot vinyl decals on all but my ring fingers. Then I applied the painted decals I made to the ring fingers of each hand to finish the look.
I’m pretty pleased with the result. Let me know what you think down below. Oh and because I can never resist the flakies:
Now, you can still get Vynails nail vinyl decals and stencils and you can still get the Alchemy Lacquers Infinity collection. So, I will include stalker links below! As always, you can find me on Social Media and Bloglovin’ (so you don’t miss any of my ramblings!) by pushing the giant pink buttons to the right! Until next time my dearest readers may your days be filled with Glitter and Flakies!
