Loki’s Nail Vinyls

A new line of nail vinyls and decals from Australian blogger Tara @lokislacquer

Nail vinyls are commonly used these days in nail art and we see a lot of the generic zigzags and straight vinyls.
Tara has decided to make some new and exciting styles that are not as widely available. She will also be making custom vinyls too and will have the option of colour choice.
I think this is a brilliant and unique idea!

Ulta3 Colour Game Collection Review & Nail Art

PicsArt_1402357596848

I only recently completed this collection a couple of weeks ago when I finally found Emerald Inten-City!

Now that I have them all I thought I’d do a little review and some nail art for you.

PSX_20140610_113357 Colours in the Colour Game Collection are as follows –

(Blue) Block It Out – A stunning bright blue with a beautiful eye-catching shimmer.

(Orange) Bright Me – A straight up in your face orange. This also has a beautiful shimmer.

(Green) Emerald Inten-City – A lovely emerald green. One of my favorite colours in the collection! Also has a slight shimmer.

(Pink) Tone It Up – This colour is just wonderful. It is a deep and bright

watermelon colour pink.

(Purple) Palette Play – The perfect purple. Not too bright and too dark. A very versatile purple.

I wanted to use all the colours in one nail art look.

I went for a half moon, striping tape mani.

□ Apply base coat. I used G&G Stuck on blu!

□ Apply a white base colour.

□ Apply fast drying topcoat to all nails. I used HK Girl Topcoat.

□ Once dry, apply a half moon nail vinyl. I used @teismom vinyls.

□ Apply four lines of striping tape making 5 even spaces.

□ Fill each of the spaces with different colours.

□ Immediately remove your striping tape and nail vinyls. Make sure you do this when the polish is still wet to achieve clean lines.

□ Clean up any excess polish on or around the cuticle.

□ Wait for the colours to dry a bit before applying topcoat to avoid smudging.

It looks like lollies!

I started out with two coats of white for a base on all nails.

I then free handed an anchor in red with a small nail art brush. Was a bit tricky as i tend to be shaky when free handing!

I then used Teismom nail vinyls for the stripes.I love those things!

I had to lay the blue on pretty thick so it was opaque enough to match my pointer (which had 3 coats).

I put two coats of red on my pinky and left my thumb white.

All topped with G&G HK Girl Topcoat!

All in all a fairly simple yet good looking mani.
