It’s that exciting time of year again, when Preciosa launch their latest innovations catalogue, introducing the new crystal products to the range. Not only have they dropped their stunning new colour ‘Blue Violet’, they’ve also made two popular colours, Indian Pink and Purple Velvet, available in nail art sizes ss5, ss7 & ss9. AND they’re now producing the pretty navette and baguette shapes in a tiny 4x2mm size too, also aimed at the nail art and beauty industry.
Introducing Blue Violet
This rich and vibrant blue shade is now available in sizes ss5 - ss34 in both the viva12 and Maxima range. So if you're a nail artist, costume designer, craft enthusiast or blinger looking for a new exciting colour to add to your repertoire, look no further than Blue Violet. This pretty new colour, which is a mix of blue and purple, comes in hotfix and non-hotfix so can be used for intricate designs in crystal nail art but also to decorate theatre costumes, drag & burlesque outfits or Irish dance dresses.
New smaller crystal shapes for nail art & embellishment
The introduction of a 4x2mm navette and baguette shape is perfect timing for nail artists, we’ve been waiting for dainty delicate crystal shapes from Preciosa and here they are! Available in Clear, AB, Jet and some shades of gold, these pretty flatback shapes for nail art will bring that extra special sparkly touch to your manicure. Crystal Parade ambassador and super talented nail artist Lisa Johnston shows how to incorporate a flatback shape into your nail art with this perfect floral set.
See how Preciosa have shown off the new Maxima Baguette on these fab ski goggles. It’s amazing how the addition of a few simple shapes can transform a boring accessory into a sparkling masterpiece! Here we can see the baguettes and navette shapes alongside some pretty crystal peardrops. For gluing on non-hotfix crystal shapes, we recommend Gem Tac glue – the best selling rhinestone adhesive.
Range extension for Indian Pink & Purple Velvet
As part of their ongoing break out into the nail art and beauty industry, Preciosa have started to manufacture some of their most popular rhinestone colours in smaller sizes SS5, SS7 and SS9, which are perfect for intricate and detailed crystal manicures. The two latest colours to be introduced are Indian Pink and Purple Velvet, as well as the AB coated versions. For applying rhinestones to nails, we always use Crystal Fix glue, this is ideal for both flatback and pointy back crystals.
