Hello lovelies,

 

I have another nail art challenge to stick to, a weekly ABC Challenge! This one is run by Emily from Nail Polish Society so if you'd like to find out more and join, visit her blog.

 

This week's letter is 'M' and I suspect I won't be the only one who will choose marble as their topic. This particular manicure of mine is water marble - my nemesis! I've tried it once before many years ago and it was a complete fail and since then I hated and admired the techniques. I wanted to try it again and since it wasn't a complete fail , I want to share it with you :)

I've done this manicure with Models Own Soft Pop collection so all of the colours are pastel neons. I've marbled over two coats of the pink Candyfloss.

 

I chose too shallow container to dip my nails into (it was Gu pudding glass pot) so I have couple of spots where I touched the bottom but other than that I was very pleased with the pattern and how it came out. I didn't want a single pattern on all nails so I just played around and did each nail differently.

 

I absolutely loved how these nails looked under UV light, so super glowy!

I liked my first successful watermarble but there's so much I still need to improve! How are your watermarbling skills? What do you think of this manicure? Let me know in the comments ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

 

 

Hello lovelies,

 

Another month has passed since the last Paint All The Nails nail art challenge (we did animal print nails) and this month's new theme is NEONS! I was trying to get into the festival mood (two festivals ahead of me - yay!) and the current Models Own Soft Pop collection was perfect for it. I opted for a subtle neon gradient and bold stamping. Let's have a look..

I started with two coats of Models Own Cosy Posy, a soft neon green. Then I've used a makeup sponge and sponged Lemon Popsicle on the tips to create a gradient. Once that was done and dry, I've decided to stamp some bright design over it. I reached for the Bundle Monster Festival plates BM-S304 and BM-S305 and Bundle Monster Electric Pink stamping polish. All three colours nicely contrasted and the result was this bright and playful festival mani!

 

And since they colours are neon they glow beautifully under UV light!

So what do you think? Too crazy to wear or a manicure worthy of a nail blogger? ;) I quite liked it even though I felt a bit juvenile :D

 

I will be going on holiday soon so I'm preparing a guest post line up for you, you can look forward to some cool nail art manis from my fellow nail bloggers. Stay tuned and have a lovely day! Lucie x
