Secret Ingredient


How is everyone doing? I have heard a lot of people using eyeshadows or micas in their nail art or frankens. This is my first time using an eyeshadow for any nail art so I wanted to keep the use of eyeshadow to the minimal. I really like how this mani turned out. The eyeshadow looks so smooth, it seems like I have applied golden nail polish. I hope you guys give it a try too as the process is very easy.

For this, I applied one coat of Zoya Sabrina. On the tips, I applied Best Glue Ever which I thinned down with water to almost 30-40% as it is easy to apply when thinned down. After the glue dried (it becomes transparent) I applied the L.A. Colors bronze eyeshadow with the help of the fan brush. I light rubbed the eyeshadow on the glue to get the smooth finish. Then, I applied fimo flower on my accent nail and drew some leaves using Holly Green acrylic paint. 

The products I used. You can also check the items used list at the bottom of the page.

Items used:
