Hello lovelies,

Another month has passed (incredibly fast I must say) and it's time for another Paint All The Nails nail art challenge. This month we voted for watercolour theme so I'm sure there will be A LOT of beautiful manicures :) If you'd like to see them all, check out the link-up below or check #paintallthenailswatercolor on social media.

I haven't prepared a watercolour mani this month because it completely slipped my mind but I've had one older one that I could use, hence the square nails ;) So let's have a look at what I did this time...

I've reached for beautiful Morrocan-style pattern nail vinyls from Whats Up Nails* because I wanted to try the Sharpie and nail vinyls art after watching Simply Nailogical's tutorial.

 

I must admit that the manicure didn't go to plan and the Sharpie watercolour leaked underneath the stencil in few places (I didn't press it down enough). So I just did some nails with the stencil and some just plain. To do that I draw few lines with chosen colour of Sharpie on a piece of foil and then loaded a brush with a bit of alcohol and wiped the Sharpie off the foil. Then I put it randomly on the nail, added different colours and kept going in with alcohol and colours until I created a nice effect.

 

The base colour is Color Club French Tip, an opaque white creme nail polish (15% discount code STASH15 - not affiliate, just saving you £££s).

I was gutted when I peeled off the stencil and the inked leaked underneath but funny enough, I now like the final result and I hope you do too!

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

I finally finished editing my new nail art tutorial and I think you'll like it ;) I'm calling it Dreamy Mandala Nails because I've used soft and almost pastel-y colours and painted over them with mandala-like patterns.

On another note - it was my birthday yesterday! I've already had a pre-celebration with two of my girlfriends on Saturday where we went to a concert in London and had a great time! I also went lovely dinner with my husband so all in all, it was a lovely birthday. Next year, the BIG 30!

But back to nails - here's the finished look:

I instantly fell in love with these nails and wore them for 5 days. I don't know about you, but I could wear feminine and soft looks all the time. I do mix up the colours a lot but vampy colours or these soft looks are my favourites.

 

And here's the promised tutorial so you can recreate this look on yourself. The hand painted mandalas can be replaced by stamping, MoYou London has some pretty awesome mandala stamping plates.

 

 

 

I'm also wearing a Luna Pyxis 3 Lines adjustable midi ring I ordered a while ago :) It's a nice looking and fitting ring in silver colour and it costed $4.80

 

So what do you think? Will you try and do this design yourself? If so, I'd love to see it so tag me @lucysstash ♥

 

Have a lovely day and see you soon! Lucie x
