If you’re a fan on one of the Sayuri Nail Lacquer Facebook pages you may have seen some sneaky pics of their new line of products, Nail Transfers designed by Hungry Designs. Woohoo!! I have always loved the idea of using nail transfers for easy nail art (I am the laziest nail artist you’ll ever meet), but until now have never tried them. Blasphemy!
You’ve seen my work with Sayuri Nail Lacquer before (if not, you should check it out here), so let’s find out a little more about Hungry Designs. Hungry Designs is a Brisbane based business that specialises in making quirky, wearable art that features the original, hand drawn designs and illustrations by owner, Amanda Whitelaw. Take a look at some of Hungry Designs work by clicking right here.
This new product release from Sayuri Nail Lacquer sees funky nail transfers from Hungry Designs paired with a lovely neutral polish, Blank Canvas by Sayuri. Today, I’m showing you a couple of the transfers paired with Blank Canvas.
Blank Canvas has been designed as the perfect neutral base to use the transfers with. Of course, the transfers will work with any base, but Blank Canvas gives a clean, fresh look to your nails, perfect for the retro feel that is so hot right now. It’s great to use as a whole mani, and compatible with many other colours for use in nail art, or as a feature nail or two.
It is an extremely complimentary nude, not too pink, not too orange, not too white. I’d describe it as an almond nougat style colour with a whisper of a shimmer. Why I always have to reference food, I don’t know!
For the following photos I applied two coats, waiting well in between layers for it to dry. For my photos of just the base (below) I applied no top coat.
Blank Canvas can apply slightly thicker than some other polishes, purely due to the mica used to create a decent opaque nude polish. The consistency was not an issue to the application and did not bother me at all, and it levelled, slower than I’m used to, but still, it levelled well, leaving a lovely solid finish. Perfect for a two coater crème I’d say.
For this post I simply applied two hearts, and a ‘hello’ to my nails to just briefly show how the transfers look, and test them out.
Each packet of transfers come with a neat, easy to understand set of instructions on the back. Basically they apply just as you would water tattoos. Easy as!
I will have another post coming up later in the week showing some different looks I’ve created with both Sayuri’s Blank Canvas and their collaboration Nail Transfers.
Just as I write this, I’ve fallen in love with it all over again, and I’m going to do another look tonight because the combo of Blank Canvas and those funky transfers is just me right now!
