The Beauty Buffs - Royal Blue

April 09, 2014

Hello ladies! Today I have a new post from The Beauty Buffs series (see my previous post in this series here). This week theme was Royal Blue and it was a great opportunity for me to use one of my recent favorite additions to the collection. Apparently the Royal Blue color has various definitions, I thought that using two colors could be a nice solution for this theme's nail art.
So here's my Royal Blue nail art for The Beauty Buffs challenge, keep reading to learn how I created this design.



For this Royal Blue nail art I used two blue shades by CHIC; Soul Mate (283) - a deep dark blue and Catwalk (264) a lighter blue. I created a gradient with these two colors using a simple makeup sponge.
I added some silver holo glitter over the gradient to give the design a bit of sparkle, using GK 734 A - a fine silver holographic glitter in various sizes in a clear base.
For the stamping design I used Nailz Craze NC02 stamping plate (this swirly design is probably my favorite from my plates since I used it sooo many times already, never get tired of this one!) with Konad's white stamping polish, topping it with PUPA's Gel Top Coat (which has a great wide brush that helps to prevent smearing oכ stamped designs and adds a beautiful gloss).



That was a pretty easy and fun design to create, I really loved how this Royal Blue nail art turned out and I would love to hear what you think. Hope you enjoyed this post and liked my nail art.
I would love to know what in your eyes is the perfect Royal Blue color of nail polish, be don't be shy and leave a comment below!
