Pigment Nails

February 3, 2015

I loved these nails I did for Femme Fatale Fiends two weeks ago, so decided to share them here too. My first attempt at using pigment with nail polish and I was quite pleased with the look.

I have previously used pigments in gel to create different colours/shimmers and gradients, but never tried them with polish. On Instagram @oliviajade19 recently did some pigment nails, and that was what gave me the push to try them out.


I used Mirror Of Dawn, a golden highlighted blue toned silver holo polish by Femme Fatale Cosmetics on my pinkie and index fingers.

I then applied a black base, and used Legion and Shifting Sands, both eye pigments from Femme Fatale Cosmetics to create the feature nails.



Although the process was slightly messy, I adored these nails and look forward to doing more sometime soon.

If you’d like to know more about how to create pigment nails, I can do a step-by-step of how I created these, just let me know.

    Hi, Chris. My name is Christine, too, and I’d really like to know how you did this, and what you mean by ‘pigment’. Is this the coloured powder that you can use to make nail polishes with? I’d love a step-by-step tutorial if you would be so kind. Love your blog.
