Today's post will be two-fold as it will have nail art AND review of polish. I've been recently sent some products from the brand SEVENTEEN to try. SEVENTEEN is Boots' own brand and is increasingly bringing trendy products. You might have already seen their Define & Contour sculpting duo in my December Favourites. I've also played around with their polishes and because they've got a great formula I've decided to feature them too.
First up is a manicure that was quite simple to do yet it looks very striking to me thanks to the gold sticker. I have started with two coats of SEVENTEEN Garnet, then I've free-hand painted a diagonal line with SEVENTEEN Sapphire and filled in the tip of the nail. When it all dried I've used gold chain stickers from IZ Beauty Of London - DECO iT. DECO iT stickers were gifted to me at the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards 2014 and they were very simple to use. Just stick them on, gently pat them down to make them stick properly and become translucent and seal with topcoat!
Garnet - dark vampy red with crelly formula (cross between jelly and creme). You know I love vampy colours, especially when they are purple or red and this one was spot on for me. It applied very easily and two coats were opaque as you will see in the pictures. Garnet dried smoothly with very glossy finish. It's a very nice polish and an excellent value for money. Garnet and Sapphire shades are from their Gel Colour line for £3.99 per polish or £3 when purchased on current offer 2 for £6.
Please excuse the lower photo quality, the daylight was really bad that day but it still shows the colour much better than photos in lightbox (the nail art pics taken in lightbox and you can see the difference).
I hope you've enjoyed today's post! Lucie x
