On-Trend: Purple Nails with Metallic Stars Nail Art!

 Nails Inc. Gel Effect Polish in Bond Street

For the metal stars nail art I used [L to R]:
Essie Licorice; Essie Luxeffects in Set In Stones; Topshop Nails in Glimmer

Hey Beauty Lovers! As you probably have noticed I have had a bit of a nail art overload recently... I really got into it, and even made an order on Amazon, so I'm waiting for a few fun nail art things to be delivered in the next week or so, so take it as a warning... more nail art looks are to come!! Purple is going to be one of the biggest colour trends this year. As a base colour I'm wearing two coats of Nails Inc. Gel Effect Polish in Bond Street, which is a very winter-appropriate cream deep purple. I have been absolutely obsessed with this nail range, as you may have noticed. 

For the metallic nail art I randomly painted small stars on the two accent nails. Starting with Topshop Nails in Glimmer, which is a beautiful antique gold, I applied one coat with a fine artists brush. For more definition I then took an even finer artists brush and placed thin lines in the centre of the stars using Essie Licorice, it's a super opaque cream black. And to finish off the look I applied big glitters from Essie Set In Stones in the middle of the stars and then the fine remaining glitters all around the stars to create that sparkly effect. And that's it!
