Illamasqua Geist from the Paranormal collection was used for the base of nails. This is a clear UV Topcoat polish that glows under UV light. The polish has a blue/pink tinge to it and gives a lovely pink glow to the nails. It dries to a high shine leaving a gel like look to the nails.
Illamasqua Scorch is a highly opaque pure white creme polish that dries to a glossy finish. A striping brush was used to paint the curved outline shape from the cuticle and across the tips. This was then filled in using the nail polish application brush. Two coats were applied to middle finger before applying vertical stripes.
Illamasqua Boosh is a highly opaque black creme polish making it ideal for nail art. This was applied with a striping brush to outline the curved shape on nails and for the stripes on tips.
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat gives nails a nice smooth finish with a high shine and does not smudge nail art.
