Hello lovelies,

 

I'm back with the Shattered Glass Nails! It's a huge hit worldwide and this time I wanted to replicate the clean nude look. I'm loving this trend so much and I have a lot more coming!

 

Since the first manicure earlier this week, I have done some research into the pearlescent cellophane and where to get it. It's really not that easy to find the exact thing but I managed to dig out some UK sources for you:

So that's the final look! I have used OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, OPI Don't Burst My Bubble, Pearlescent/opalescent cellophane (links above) and Seche Vite top coat.

 

I've prepared a tutorial on this (super simple) technique and how to recreate this exact look:

 

 

 

 

 

I would really appreciate if you could leave me some feedback on how to improve my video tutorials. I know I'll never be as fantastic and quirky like Christine aka Simply Nailogical but I feel there's still room for improvement.

 

What's your take on this shattered glass look? Like or dislike? Let me know ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the cellophane pieces are very prone to peeling off within a day so definitely use two coat of top coat. They would last much better in gel polish.

 

Hello lovelies,

 

Whilst I'm preparing some bigger post for you, I want to share with you this older nail art manicure I did on my rounded nails at the time.

 

I have been playing with SpaRitual Autumn polishes from the Pause collection, namely Artisan and Modern Craftsman. I've decided to create stamping decals and a chic geometric design.

I have applied two coats of Artisan and then I had to create the decals. I have stamped the geometric pattern on a stamper and filled some parts with small brush and Modern Craftsman. Then I topcoated the decal and once it was dry I peeled it off and applied to the wet nail. The gold polish I've used for stamping is Hit The Bottle To have and to Gold, the stamping plate Pueen 103 from the 24M - Make Your Day set and stamper and scraper from B. Loves Plates.

 

Where to buy:

Sparitual: SpaRitual UK / SpaRitual US

Hit The Bottle: US & Canada, UK, Australia

Pueen stamping set: Pueen US

B. Loves Plates products: B. Loves Plates website

 

This manicure is from about a month and a half ago when I freshly filed nails on one of my hands into round shape...so don't worry, I didn't change my nail shape completely ;) What do you think about the manicure?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie
