Lilac Petals

I think Lilac Sheen is my favourite Models Own hypergel polish, the colour is the perfect pastel shade. The hypergel formula makes the polish super shiny and long lasting, the only downside I've found is that it's quite thick. I'm not sure if it's just this colours or even my bottle, as I have other hypergels which are much easier to use.

The design on this mani was inspired by a floral outline pattern by Polished Elegance I saw on Instagram.  You know how much I love florals so I just had to give it a go! I practiced a bit on paper and even if you dont get it perfectly even the floral shape is really cute. I must admit though, using my Barry M nail art pen was a bit of a challenge as it's got a thick nib, I suspect I would have been more successful using a really thin brush. I mixed a couple of flower designs to make the mani a bit more interesting and added dots to bring it all together.

I love using pastels and white together as the designs turn out quite subtle and girly, perfect for spring! My favourite part of this design is that the flowers on the thumb and middle fingers look just like our namesake flower!

Which is your favourite hypergel shade?



  1. Love this look. Thanks for the inspiration... I will be trying this on myself. :)
