Burberry Inspired Nail Art Using Inkk Nail Lacquers

Burberry Inspired Nail Art Using Inkk Nail Lacquers

Today’s Monday manicure is a Burberry Inspired Nail Art using Inkk Nail Lacquers. I like the Burberry print, but would never purchase from the company. They are not cruelty free as they sell their beauty products in China! In addition, they use real fur, etc.. Fortunately, you can do your own Burberry Inspired Nail Art using Inkk Nail Lacquers! Inkk is cruelty free, vegan, and five-free (of harmful chemicals). And, seriously, the Inkk Nail Lacquers are dirt cheap compared to anything that you might be (sadly) tempted to purchase from Burberry!

The gorgeous, large bottles hold 18ml of polish, and are made in the USA. Go to the Inkk website and you will see that you can make a custom nail lacquer. In addition, you can purchase one from the House of Inkk Collection. The two shades used in the Burberry Inspired Nail Art are Francesca, and another that I previously reviewed, Snow Shadow. Snow Shadow is from House of Inkk’s Winter Arctic Collection. The Winter Arctic Collection is limited edition, so it’s only available until December 16th, or until supplies last.

Please note that I only used a top coat on my one nail (ring finger) for the Burberry Inspired Nail Art. My other nails are without a top coat, and you can see just how glossy the Inkk Francesca is! No matter what the conditions, the polish is gorgeous and easy to apply.  Yes, I did apply a top coat after the photos, so I would have so many more days without having to touch up my nails!

Here’s some good advice to remember whether you’re doing the Burberry Inspired Nail Art, or simply applying Inkk Polish. It’s from Harper’s Bazaar, 2015: “The main culprit behind chips and peels,” according to manicurist Deborah Lippmann, “is rushed, heavy-handed application. You absolutely must let each layer—base coat, first polish application, second polish application and top coat—dry completely before doing the next,” she says. “The solvents in the polish need no less than two minutes to evaporate and if you actually watch the nail for that period,” explains Lippmann, “you’ll see it go from having a really wet look to a dried-down, glassy look that means the solvents are gone. When you paint on your next coat before the layer before is fully dry, you get peeling in sheets,” she says. Part two of the problem is too-thick application: “You want each layer to be very thin—it’s okay if the first coat is streaky, you’ll cover that the next time.” 
So, I have to just add that my experience with Inkk Nail Lacquers is that the first coat is never streaky. Ever.

For the photo above, I wrapped my black scarf around my fingers, because with the temperature outside reading 22°F, I decided to take this inside and simulate real life conditions!
If you haven’t tried any of the Inkk Lacquers, now is the time! The Winter Arctic Collection is discounted, and is limited edition.

Inkk Snow Shadow Review and Photos

Inkk Snow Shadow

Inkk Snow Shadow and Winter Charcoal are two of the five new nail polish shades I received from the House of Inkk’s new Winter Arctic Collection.  Ashley Morgan, the Creator and President of Inkk will have them available for purchase later this week.

I asked Ashley a lot of questions about the Winter Arctic Collection because–in addition to the fact that I love it – I was really fascinated with her color choice, and the whole process. As a nail polish lover, I’m sure you’ll be interested in learning what Ashley said, and the photos she shared. 

  1. How did you decide on which five shades to use for your Winter Arctic Collection?
  2. Will you be adding to the collection?

“I wanted to capture the feeling of winter, arctic and chill and steer away from traditional Holiday colors like red, green, orange.  I used Pinterest to find pictures that had this feel to it. I downloaded the pictures I liked the feel of and used the Inkk website, Create Tab, to pull colors from the pictures. This is the same way anyone can make custom colors. I wanted to have a variety of light/dark and choose colors that represent winter as well as wear well with other colors (for fashion).

Below are two examples of pictures inside Inkk website choosing the colors. You can see the grey, aqua, blues in each.

And yes, I will probably add some warmer shades, think winter sunset, sunrise and northern lights.”

There are so many reasons that I love Inkk Nail Lacquers, and highly recommend it. First, you don’t have to worry about animal cruelty because they are a cruelty free nail polish brand. If you’re vegan, you’ll also be able to enjoy the polish, as there are no animal derived ingredients!  There is also the fact that they are five-free, which means that you’re not worrying about the chemicals Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor. 

Finally, there is no excuse to use another polish that is not cruelty free and vegan, because the quality is superb. Sometimes people will get excited about the pretty packaging of a nail polish–regardless of either the quality of the product or the fact that the company is listed as one that tests on animals! With Inkk, you’ll have the highest quality product and a beautiful product, including the mailer and the box in which the polish is packaged.

I’ll do another post showing you more of Winter Charcoal, which is a dark grey shade. Inkk Snow Shadow is a light, pale grey shade. I labeled the photo below so you would see that both Inkk Snow Shadow and Winter Charcoal are easy to apply and needed only one to two coats for full  opaqueness. Ashley also sent an Inkk Matte Top Coat for me to play with, and I used that as well.

 

So you’ll get a better understanding of the variety of shades and looks you can achieve, I have labeled what I used.
