Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism ZIG ZAG Nail Art manicure

Hello,

I've been playing around with the two new Illamasqua shades Nomad and Stance (reviewed separately here) and I've created a zig zag manicure. I really, really, really(!) liked the manicure and I'm kind of proud of it :) The colours create nice contrast and go well together. Stance over Nomad is not as vibrant fuchsia as when applied alone but in this case I don't mind.  So how I did this manicure?

I've applied two coats of Nomad first. Then I've applied one coat of Seche Vite Topcoat to make it dry and hard fast. Then I've used paper tape stripes which I cut with hobby zig zag scissors. I painted the first nail with Stance and removed the paper tap straight after. Next I repeated this process with the rest of the nails and when the Stance dried properly I've applied one coat of Seche Vite topcoat.

  6. Great art work. I am so loving these colors worn together. This release is far better worn together than as 2 separate polishes.

  10. Wonderful! If nail polishes stayed on my nails more than 3 days unbroken, I'd play with my manicure in such a delicate way, too! Clap my hands for your skills!

  15. I wish wish wish I could grow my nails like urs but unfortunately I was not genetically blessed so no matter what I do it doesn't help that much. So instead I get my nail fix drooling over urs. Love this design too much!
