Hello lovelies,

 

I got some more Rococo Nail Apparel polishes to review and I've decided to show you two shades that would actually look really nice together in a nail art.

 

I actually like thike this brand because the attention to detail is great. The boxes are super pretty (I love boudoir-style prints), bottles are chic and polishes have good formula.

Metal Jacket - cool-toned brown metallic with silver metallic particles. Rococo describes this finish as molten lava which I haven't heard of before but how cool is it to say 'I have molten lava finish on my nail!?'

 

The formula was great - the polish was almost one-coater but I did apply two thin coats in the end to ensure perfect coverage. It applied easily but because of the metallic finish I had to pay attention to brush strokes to avoid streaks. The polish dried fast.

Lab Nude 8.8 - caramel-beige creme with peachy undertones. I don't really wear beige colours unless I need some neutral and office-friendly polish so I don't think I appreciate this colour as much as I could. It has good but slightly runny formula that applied well and all I needed were two thin coats - the pigmentation is very good. It dried fast and smooth.

I've used the Superbase Treatment Basecoat and Supergloss Topcoat with these polishes again (both reviewed here). Their packaging has a gold print instead of the regular pink one which makes it feel even more luxurious to me.

So that were two more shades I wanted to show you. The only problem I've had was with the brush. It has slightly slanted tip so I wasn't a big fan of that. Otherwise as I said in the beginning, I love the packaging. If you've missed previous reviews of Rococo Nail Apparel, check them out here.

 

Rococo Nail Apparel polishes are available at Lookfantastic, SpaceNK and Feelunique.

Hello lovelies,

 

I finally got to try nail stickers that make it incredibly easy to create zig-zag nail art. Some of you might call it chevron but I'm still undecided on what is the correct term :D Anyway - I have created 'Zig-Zag madness' manicure where I've combined zig zag pattern created with stickers but also one painted freehand.

I've used Stick Me Nails stickers that made the whole process very easy. I've intentionally spaced them out so the coloured parts would be wider but if you'd like the zig-zag pattern evenly spaced then you could apply a whole bit of stickers on the nail and then peel off every other stripe/sticker. However that seems to me like a bit of a waste so I didn't want to do that. They were pliable enough to bend around my nail and they aadhered nicely so i really have nothing to bad to say about them. A sheet 100 of these stickers is sold for $5 in Stick Me Nails Etsy store. Stick Me Nails are also on Instagram so follow them for all the news and offers!

 

I have also used two Renaissance Cosmetics polishes - Rosie Osie and Nightshade. They are both beautiful jelly-based polishes with shimmer and glitter in them and I have used just one coat in the pictures. Two coats would make the polishes darker and fully opaque. You can find Renaissance Cosmetics on Instagram and Facebook too and in case you didn't know, the creative soul behind this brand is talented Meghan aka Will Paint Nails For Food.

 

Hope you liked this manicure and will stop by tomorrow for more nails ;) Lucie x
