Hello lovelies,

 

How are you all doing? It's already March and it got me thinking? What about all those New Year's resolutions? A big portion of resolutions revolves around weight loss and exercise and exercise is an inspiration of today's nails.

 

Bundle Monster has released a set of exercise-themed stamping plates last year (reviewed here) and I've done another manicure with them :) This time I've combined the Bundle Monster designs with a colourful background achieved with Morgan Taylor Chrome collection polishes.

I've started with Models Own Chrome Turquoise, a blue metallic polish. Then I've painted brush lines and strokes with Morgan Taylor Sunset Yellow Appliqué, Ultra Marine Appliqué and Royal Appliqué so that they overlap each other in places.

Next, I wanted to protect my skin before stamping so I've painted Bundle Monster Poli-Peel latex barrier around my nails. Then I've stamped over the colourful background with Bundle Monster Work It! plates BM-XL172 and BM-XL172 and sealed the nails with Seche Vite topcoat. 

 

So that's my exercise-themed manicure! What do you think? Let me know in the comments...

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

Today I want to share with you a tutorial that I've created a year ago but never published it. It is from a time when I was creating nail art designs with Bio Seaweed Gel polishes and as I was playing with different marbling techniques, I've noticed that the colours kind of seep into each other. I started to play with the colours a bit more and the final result looked like Jack Frost painted frost on the nail! I loved it and I wanted to recreate this on my nails and wear it :)

I've used Bio Seaweed Gel in Twilight #142 and Snow White #101 for the nail art, Bio Seaweed Gel No Sanding Base and Diamond Shine Top and rounded flat brush from my local art supplies store (#6 Daler-Rowney System 3, SY67 Filbert brush).

And here's how you can do this simple nail design yourself! If you do try it then please tag me as an inspiration, I'd love to see your nails :)

 

 

So what do you think? I really like this effect. It looks simple yet interesting and I haven't seen it before so that makes it even more attractive to me! Let me know in the comments ;)

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
