Glam and Glits released a line of Ink gel art polishes, which are the first that I’ve heard of. Each bottle has a long, thin nail art brush that enables you to create artistic designs. I created the freehand nail art below using four colors: Black, Charm (teal blue), and Blaze (orange) and Chrome (silver glitter). I applied these over a white base of Ink Glacier. The art brushes were very easy to use, and the colors of the creme polishes were highly pigmented so in most cases only one coat of polish was needed. I was also impressed with how distinct the lines are with these because most gel polishes tend to spread out and not allow for crisp lines. The only polish I was a little disappointed in was Chrome because the glitter didn’t seem very dense and I couldn’t get a solid streak of glitter off of the brush, so I just used that one as an accent over top of the other colors. The polishes all cured nicely and I didn’t experience any wrinkling even if the polish was applied a little thick. These polishes cure in LED and UV lamps, and there are over 30 different colors available. Head on over to the Glam and Glits site to check them out!
I practiced some freehand designs on a color wheel before attempting a design on my nails. I’m very impressed with how easy they were to use. The colors seen in the background below from left to right are: Sin (red), Chrome, White, Black, Blaze and Charm.
