NAIL ART TUTORIAL: LAQA & CO.
We have both been doing a lot of travelling lately & naturally we always pack a couple (10+) polishes to keep us polished pretty wherever we are. From time to time, there is a causality & we now pack our polishes separately, but we have recently been introduced to a product that you can literally throw anywhere (customs approved!). LAQA & CO. Cosmetics has the perfect polish for someone on the go – a polish pen. Now, we have seen a few of these floating around drug stores & were a little on the sceptic side, but LAQA & CO. has restored our faith in polish pens! The pen was super easy to use & the application was great. Fun fact: Laqa & Co. has different artist design the packaging for each colour. Such a cool and interesting concept resulting in some amazing designs! (aka. inspiration for all nail art diy-ers)
Step 1: After applying a base coat, paint nail with LAQA & CO. polish pen in Pimpin’. We used about 3 coats for full coverage. We love pink shades, so this bright hot pink was right up our alley. It reminds us of a bright raspberry with a cool undertone.
Step 2: We really loved the base colour & wanted to make sure it stood out in the completed design, so we kept our accent colours classic black & white. Using a larger dotting tool begin 2 rows of large dots on an angle from the base, coming from the corner.
Step 4: Finish your last row, ending in the opposite corner from which you started. We used the tiniest dotting tool we had to fill in the last few rows. Don’t forget to seal in your design with a top coat!
