Lime Crime Inspired Nails

June 19, 2013

Today's nail art is inspired by the fabulous Lime Crime purple lipstick with the silver unicorn imprint.
I actually came across this idea on Instagram, originally made by @vixen_nails, and once I saw this I knew I had to recreate this design.
I actually borrowed this gorgeous lipstick from a fellow polish friend, who I must thank once again for her help, and also a huge thanks to vixen_nails for the inspiration for this nail art.

I wanted to recreate the design and make it as close to the original product as I could. I was happy to discover that one of my recent purchase, China Glaze That's Shore Bright was a great fit for this nail art, and that my Nailz Craze NC02 stamping plate was just perfect with it's unicorn and stars designs.
I was surprised to discover that in real life, the polish I used was the exact same color as the lipstick, what a perfect match!
To create this simple yet gorgeous design I applied two coats of China Glaze That's Shore Bright and stamped over it with Essie No Place Like Chrome (I preferred to use a solid silver rather than a holographic color, which I felt wouldn't give me the perfect coverage). Then sealed the design with one coat of Poshe.

I was really happy with the final look of this design, it was super easy to execute and it resembled so much to the inspiration, so for me this was a success!
Would love to hear what you think about my Lime Crime inspired design ;)

  5. It's so perfect! It must have taken alot of time and effort!

  6. Love it very cool

  7. While I'm not a fan of the Lime Crime brand (love unicorns, but not their stuff) I have to say that this is SO well done. It really is an exact match! If only it was possible to stamp with holo silver polish, but I agree on that turning out too sheer, and probably drying too fast for stamping. =P
    I'd definitely wear this manicure, just with a different base color... I don't need to start accumulating nail stamping stuff, though! ...But if I did I'd want the plates in your store; they are so perfectly me!

  8. Amazing! You are so creative!
