Moroccan Nail Art with The Lacquer Lab Marrakech Collection



I was looking for a Morrocan inspired design to create with The Lacquer Lab's Marrakech collection, and the Quatrefoil technique caught my eye so I decided to give it a go! I've also got swatches of the whole collection!

At first glance, this technique looks difficult, but it's really not! Just a little time consuming if it's your first go (this was most certainly my first go and it took quite a while!) but the end result is really pretty and all you need is a dotting tool or two. I must admit though, it looks better in real life...the camera zoom doesn't really do it any favours. I'm not sure who first came up with this, but I used this tutorial from Christabell Nails to help me along.

I used two colours from The Lacquer Lab Marrakech Collection - Karma Sutra and Rock the Kasbah.


Now for the swatches of the Marrakech Collection! Rock the Kasbah is a dusty orange creme which reminds me of a sunset. The formula is great, as I've come to expect from The Lacquer Lab! I used 2 coats


Karma Sutra is a hot raspberry red creme. 2 coats


Souk & The City is a light brown creme with red undertones. 2 coats


Snake Charmer is a beautiful glossy blue creme. 2 coats


Lastly, Fountain of Youth is a grey-green jelly base with gold glitter. It's quite sheer so you'll need around 4 thin coats, but the result is a lovely glimmering jelly sandwich!



I'm a big fan of these shades, I think I might like them even more than the Miami polishes! 

My picks: Fountain of Youth and Rock the Kasbah

Availability

The Marrakech Collection is available only from thelacquerlab.com, priced £7 a bottle or £29 for the full collection of 5 bottles.

  2. I love the design! Would you maybe know of a stamping plate with a similar design? I'm sure I wouldn't be able to freehand this.

  9. Site et application qui permet de trouver un taxi ou une agence a proximité geolocalisé en Algérie, Maroc et Tunisie.

    une application destinée à faciliter la localisation et réservation d’un taxi se trouvant dans une même zone que le client qui parfois a du mal à le localiser alors qu’il se trouve à moins d’un bloc de sa position.
    Taxi-Diali, comme son nom l’indique clairement, c’est une application bien adaptée à tout téléphone mobile fonctionnant sous le système Android. Une fois téléchargée dans chaque portable, du client et du chauffeur de taxi, elle permet à ce dernier d’être facilement repéré par son client qui cherche patiemment un taxi.
    Bien sur, pour le client dès que l’application lui signale la présence d’un taxi ou plusieurs dans la même zone où il se trouve, il aura toute la latitude de choisir et de faire appel à celui qui lui convient le mieux puisque toutes les coordonnées du taxi sont affichées dans son écran. Lorsque le client valide son choix pour tel taxi , le chauffeur du dit taxi peut également identifier la position de l’appelant grâce à la géolocalisation intégrée dans l’application et rappliquer directement à sa position sans qu’il ne lui la donne.
    Taxi Diali est un service gratuit qui permet de faire gagner beaucoup de temps et épargner des attentes indéterminées à tous ceux qui sont en déplacement dans une grande ville ou tout simplement à ceux qui veulent pour une raison ou une autre
