Speckle Nails


After lusting after the Illmasqua Speckled Nail Varnishes I decided to try and recreate my own version. Obviously they are nowhere near the same but well what can I say, I still rather like them.


























I used Barry M 'Mint Green' for my base and then Barry M 'Black' and 'Matt White' to create the dots. Whilst creating this design I found that putting in place different size dots gave this a much more speckled look; I really do like how it turned out, what do you think?

I would also just like to say thank you to all my recent followers and all the lovely comments I have received over the last two weeks; the support really does mean a lot to me.

Along with this I would also just like to add a reminder that Hellocotton will be going very shortly so if you do follow me through that platform would you like to follow me via some other method, I really do recommend Bloglovin; there are however alternative methods below.

P.S I'm also wearing my new ring from Dixi!

  3. They actually do look really good! I've been lusting after the speckled varnishes too, but never would have thought to recreate it in this way. I might give it a go! :) x

  6. Awh, I love your alternative! It's very cute and you can do way more color combos than with a set polish! :)

  11. These designs are super cute and easy for a cool chick look! Absolutely love it! I did a similar style in the Summer, using black and yellow nail varnishes from Avon. but I've never thought of using 3 colours and with such a great combination of colours either. Thank you very much, definetly trying this soon!
