WHAT I’M WEARING: Sinead Bulley, The Nail Shack
By Sophie Nutt | 03 February 2019 | Feature, Tech Talk
We want to see what you’re wearing on your nails!
Sinead Bulley, of The Nail Shack, wears leopard print-filled stars against a navy hue for an on-trend winter glam look.
“I sculpted my nail extensions with Akzentz hard builder gel. Then, using Magpie Beauty Gel Colour in Midnight Sky, I applied two coats to all nails except my middle finger. On the middle finger, using Magpie Beauty’s Anastasia glitter mixed with some Give Me Strength to make a paste applied with a sorting tool to the nail. For the star I removed the tacky inhibition layer then used Oh! Sandy colour and detailer brush to create the star shape and base. Then, using colour Pip Squeak added leopard spots, before using Black Betty for the spot detail/edging. Finally, I mixed Rosetta chrome dust with Give Me Strength to make paste and outline the star. I made sure to flash cure in between each step, then full cure before top coating with Let It Shine.
“I actually bought a navy top that had a leopard print star on it, so that’s where I got my design idea from! As soon as I bought the top I was too excited to try it out and get it on my nails as soon as possible.
“I love how this design is quite simple to do but is really effective and striking. Also, I’m a sucker for anything leopard print! It’s gone down so well with clients, too.”
