Focusing On: CND Shellac in Art Basil

I know green shades may not be as popular as pinks and reds but the new CND Shellac colour in "Art Basil" is really a game changer.  It's the perfect shade of green with shimmer that reminds me a little of the discontinued Moonlight & Roses.

When I do these posts I literally grab a load of supplies and experiment, it's a lot of fun.  I was going to layer Art Basil over Digi-Teal but the moment I applied the layer of Art Basil I fell in love with the blue/green tone in, it's gorgeous and a slight alternative to Art Basil on its own so I gave up on the carving idea.  It's really a combination you need to try!
From left to right of the above photo is:

  • Art Basil with CND Shellac in Grapefruit Sparkle.
  • Art Basil with CND Shellac in Overtly Onyx over.  I used the Lecente G1 brush and a dotting tool to then carve out the design.
  • 'African Jade' foil bought online.
  • Art Basil over Digi-Teal (looks gorgeous in real life)
I hope you enjoyed this post.  I will be doing posts for ideas using all of the CND Art Vandal Collection, please make sure you're following my Facebook Page to keep up to date with my latest posts.  If you would like to see more Focusing On posts, click here.
