Hello lovelies,

 

So I wondered what it would look like if I was to put all six ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies that I reviewed yesterday, together. What came out of it could only be called Multichrome Flakie Madness! I combined ILNP Gaia, Phoenix, Success, Electric Carnival, Luna and Supernova with black polish. Let's have a look at the nails:

Here's how you can recreate this design:

 

  1. Apply two coats of white polish (Zoya Purity)
  2. Use make up sponge to sponge on different flakies more densely. Seal the nails with Seche Vite topcoat so you can use tape.
  3. Once the topcoat dried properly apply strips of tape and make sure the edges adhered to the nail properly
  4. Paint over the whole nail with black polish (A England Camelot)
  5. Remove the tape strips immediately
  6. Seal the nails with topcoat

That is flakie madness indeed! When the nails were just full of flakies I didn't like it that much but once I added the black parts it enhanced the different colours and made it look so much better.

 

ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies Collection will be available at www.ilnp.com for $12.50 per bottle once they re-stock.

 

Have a nice day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I think this is one of those posts you've been waiting for (at least I hope ;)! I have swatches of 6 new ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies and the rest will be coming later (although I just received them so be patient with me).

 

ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies collection consists of 13 polishes in total and each has different flakies in them. They are truly stunning and each is unique in its own way.

These are all absolutely stunning and I'm just losing words when I look at them. I haven't seen such beautiful polishes in a while. Each shade is unique in its own way and yes, you totally need some Ultra Chrome flakies in your life! My top picks from these six are Supernova and Electric Carnival because it's a rainbow in a bottle.

 

All of these flakie polishes have exactly the same formula so I will just summarize it here. They applied very nicely and they lay flat on the nails so there is no rough surface. With a coat of topcoat you'll have a smooth finish. They dried fast and glossy. The flakies are in a clear base and the bottle is packed so you get a nice amount of them on the brush. In my opinion they are best layered over a polish because it takes 3-4 coats to get full opacity (although I don't doubt it would look spectacular). You can also layer different shades to get multi-coloured mix of flakies which gives you a lot of new options to try!

 

"Every 12ml bottle is created by hand, with love, in the USA. Each bottle of nail polish includes a stainless steel ball for easier mixing, a rubberized cap for better gripping, and a wide brush for easier application. All ILNP nail polishes are 3-Free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate."

 

ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies Collection is available at www.ilnp.com for $12.50 per bottle but it's out of stock at the moment so I would suggest to subscribe to their mailing to get notification of restocks and offers.

 

I hope you've enjoyed this visual feast as much as me ;) Have a nice weekend everyone! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

Yes it's true, Winter is almost here and it looks like it's going to be a cold one here in UK. I'm already 'armed' with lots of warm jumpers and chic red winter coat and I have quite a few Wintery manicures coming. I'm not really feeling Christmas this year and I really lack some inspiration and unique ideas so I don't think there will be any Christmas designs, sorry. I just really like to do something new rather than repeat somebody else's ideas.

The manicure I'll show you today is very cute one and I created it specifically to go with my pink jumper I wore for Nailartists UK meet up. I met so many lovely ladies that day in London and each one of them had super cute manicure on! But about it later on...

I'm ready for you, Winter! + a mini report from a blogger meet up in London

So I started this manicure with three coats of Zoya Dot on all fingers but my ring fingers. Three coats because the polish was quite sheer and patchy :( I prepped the ring finger nails with OPI Peel Off Base coat because later on I painted them with the mind-blowing Cirque Mirror Mirror (back in stock early January).

 

On some nails I combined Dot and Mirror Mirror into shiny metallic gradient which I absolutely loved! I stamped the remaining nails with a subtle pattern from the MoYou London Festive 03 plate. I think those are like simple poinsettia flowers but I'm not sure. I've seen this pattern on jumpers and it just works so well and evokes Winter to me.

 

And then there was the meet up...

There were 10 of us at the meet up with couple of ladies coming later. It was so great to meet other bloggers and to get to know them a bit - who am I talking about? Well you'll probably know them by their IG usernames, they were @nailsbynemo, @nailsbydaniellet, @tillynailart, @falguni_nails, @enamelled, @charsnails, @lacqueredlondon, @cassgooner, @polishedbymaria. These are great and talented ladies so check them out!

 

We've been lucky to have Nailc Inc sponsoring our meet up so we've had little goodie bags waiting for us with a glitter polish in Snowflake and the new Kale base and top coats. Thank you Nails Inc ;)

 

That's all from me today, don't forget to check out my past posts if you haven't already and have a good day!
