Illamasqua Nail Varnish Competition Promo Ad Manicure

When Illamasqua held their Nail Varnish Competition early last year (the one where you could have your dream color made?), I saw their promo ad photo and couldn't help but adore the manicure featured in the ad. Here's the ad. (:

I thought it was cleverly simple yet beautiful. It's just a combination of strokes, but I thought it was wonderfully geometrical and loved the colorway. I told myself that one day I would have to try this manicure out myself... I don't why it took me over a year to finally take action! :P But alas... I finally did. For the colors, I really wanted to try the original ones featured in the ad, but to my dismay, I didn't have the colors really. So I settled for closest three colors that still matched. I ended up using all colors from OPI's Shrek Forever After collection, and I thought that was a pleasant coincidence. ^^

I ended up using five of the six colors in the collection: Fiercely Fiona, Funky Dunkey, Ogre-The-Top Blue, Rumple's Wiggin', and What's With The Cattitude?

Onto the manicure~ (:

Ta-da? Aha. Not my best work, but I think it turned out okay, at least. ^^; Here, I used Fiercely Fiona, Ogre-The-Top Blue, and Funky Dunkey. I ended up really like the design/effect, so I decided to try it second time! This time using some more colors from the Shrek Collection.

My second attempt! Here, I've tried it on shorter/square nails. :P I used Rumple's Wiggin', Fiercely Fiona, and What's With The Cattitude? I think I liked how it came out the second time better. ^^;~

What do you guys think of the design? I really like how it forms the little triangle in between. Hehe. Okay... that's all for now! (:
