Trend Spotting: Illamasqua Rubber Finish Nail Varnish
Boca Babes LOVE nail news! The sudden revival of nail artistry has opened the door to an endless array of colors and finishes! Brace yourself once more for the not quite matte, not quite jelly, hybrid hype machine that is RUBBER varnish! Brought to you by Illamasqua (known for their super pigmented, high intensity color selections), the polishes retail for $14 at Sephora. Two coats is sufficient and top coat isn’t necessary since you want to keep the rubbery look of the finish in tact (just make sure to use a good base coat).
If you typically shy away from such bold trends, try incorporating the color on just one “accent” nail on each hand. A complimentary color on the rest of your nails will keep the look pulled together, with just a touch of trend that’s hip for ANY age.
End Of Summer Savings!!
Renew, revive, and RELAX with a deep conditioning treatment, Perfecting Plant Peel (effective, non aggressive exfoliation), and Gelish application for only $75 !
Don’t forget! We offer a full range of Gelish polishes, from neutrals to neons and everything in between! Come put a little magic in your manicure!
We’re so excited to incorporate our love for nail art with Gelish polishes! Using “Your So Sweet You’re Giving Me A Toothache” (candy pink creme), “Black Shadow” (black creme), and “Twinkle” (gold glitter), we created a tuxedo pattern and applied gold leaf. The edgy part of manicures today is the variation- each nail has its own look (pattern, texture, or color). By staying within the same color scheme, nails still look pulled together and of course, POLISHED.
