Hello lovelies! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend! I decided I wanted to do some more one stroke nail art today. I've only attempted this a few times and I just love the effect it gives, so pretty and girly!
Models own had a 50% off sale the other week to celebrate reaching 250,000 followers on Facebook. I couldn't resist ordering some of their polishes, two of which were part of their new HyperGel range. Now I have to admit I do not really understand the gel effect polishes all these brands are bringing out. To me it just looks how my normal cremes look with topcoat! But I fell in love with the colour of lilac sheen, it looks so delicate. I found the polish quite thick to apply and it took a while to dry but you can see it does give a glossy gel effect without topcoat. I did get some cracking after a couple of days wear which I haven't with any other of their polishes but I still think this was a bargain for £2.50 though and it makes a great base for nail art.
Before painting the one stroke flowers, I added a holographic topcoat from Iconic Effect, which actually reminds me I have a couple of their polishes I still need to swatch! They are a brilliant UK indie brand and their extreme holographic topcoat is very popular. I used oumaxi acrylic paint and a flat brush from Born pretty store for the one stroke flowers. I also added bits of silver acrylic paint using another of their brushes.
What do you think of the Models Own HyperGel range? I hope you enjoy my nail art for today :)
