Ikat Diamond X

Hello there you wonderful people!! Ok my less procrastinating thing isn't working out so hot, but that's the thing with resolutions, you can't expect them to be immediate and I don't. But I'll actually have to work on this one, a lot. I like this X, very dramatic, it's obviously not really. But I like how much you can do with ikats, and they look great and are so easy to do.

See dat X, it's v fun. I really like the colour combination here, and the bar glitter all peaking through is pretty cool (unless you hate bar glitter, then it's not pretty cool for you). I was worried about proportioning here, but it all worked out in the end. Hallelujah for my black pen!!

I got my white polish and did a rough diamond, then got the brush of whatever colour of polish I was using and did a diamond blob over the white and finally I did some spikiness with the black pen. Sorted.

Base: OPI - My Current Crush and Barry M - Tinsel Town
White: Barry M - Matt White
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Purple: Illamasqua - Jo'Mina
Pink: Madame Milly - Pink (no name)
Teal: Barry M - Guava
Green: Rimmel - Block Your Green!

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day!! :)


  1. Great ikat! I also really like the bar glitter here, it adds something extra to the design :)

    1. Thank you!!! I like bar glitter adding that something extra, good way of putting it :) to be perfectly I actually quite like bar glitter unlike what seems to be everyone else :)

  2. This is really beautiful! I love how Tinsel Town peeks through, kinda reminds me of flashing lights!
