Dry Brush Nail art with Londontown's Back With a Vengeance Collection

Press Sample

Londontown has come "Back With a Vengeance" for their latest fall collection, but don't let this release deceive you. The shades are more timeless and can easily be worn any time of year. This is a large part of allure of this collection for me, and I opted to put three of the four shades together for a fun nail art design. Let's check it out!

To create this look, I started off with Jane Austen, a lovely light pink toned lavender crème, as my base shade.

I then used the vibrant cobalt blue crème, Iconic, and dry brushed on top of my base. I then used Kissed By Rose Gold, a metallic rose gold shade, and again dry brushed in select locations on my nails. I sealed everything in with Gel Genius top coat and went on my way.

I really love the way this simple design turned out, and the colours play so beautifully together! I actually painted this look for my trip to Los Angeles for The Makeup Show, and between the show and my immediate trip right afterwards, I ended up wearing this look for a week and a half! During that time, I didn't have a single chip, and my nails looked just as nice when I got home and removed my polish as they did when I painted them the first day. Now that's what I call lasting power!

All three of these shades are currently available from the Londontown website for $16 each. If you're wanting a manicure that lasts a long time, I would strongly recommend their Gel Genius top coat as well. It's a little more spendy that other brands at $20 a bottle, but it's the best top coat I have used for long term wear.

I hope you've enjoyed today's post! Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
