Ulta3 Nail Art inspired by The Illustrated Nail and Chalkboard Nails

Hey all!

Since I am on a nail art kick I figured I would show you some photos that I have been sitting on for some time now.

I did these after I was contacted by the PR group behind Ulta3 nail polish but it has been months since any one has heard anything further from them about whatever it was they wanted to do so I figured I would share these as I am still quite proud of them! A lot of the polishes used where Ulta3 as a requirement.

First up, I recreated a design I saw on The Illustrated Nail's tumblr page, a wonderful black and white design with a framed tip that she had done for a photoshoot.

I used Ulta3 Black Satin, Lily White and Savvy Grey for the gradient, Ulta3 Stop The Press and China Glaze Fairy Dust for the glitter and Ulta3 Black Satin again for the tips. I really really want to redo this mani again if I can get the length back, they looked so amazingly striking!

Lastly I really wanted to give the grungy distressed nail art that Chalkboard Nails did on her Youtube page a shot.

I used Ulta3 Lily White for the base and did the design using Ulta3 Black Satin, Spring Break, Illamasqua Nurture and Collide. I love this distressed look, definitely need to do it again!

Hope you enjoyed this older post!
