Hello lovelies,

 

Today I have some nail art for you! I have seen a beautiful nail art tutorial from Tartofraises on how to create white one stroke roses and I had to try it! I love one stroke nail art but I'm not very good yet but practice makes perfect so I keep trying.

 

I have painted the white one stroke roses over beautiful SpaRitual Artisan using Nsi Secrets Prism Paints in Little White Lies and angled one stroke brush.

This was not an easy design to recreate and I did have a little practice beforehand on a piece of paper. It is not as delicate and perfect as Tartofraises' design but I still like it. Artisan made a gorgeous sparkly background.

 

SpaRitual Pause collection including Artisan is available at SpaRitual UK and  SpaRitual US  and at the usual outlets like salons and spas.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

 

Hello lovelies,

 

On Thursday 24th September, I have attended two events - Rituals event which I've written about HERE and Barry M event which I'll tell you a bit more about today.

 

Barry M is releasing new products for the Autumn/Winter 2015 season and they've prepared a special spooky event for bloggers and vloggers. The event was held at the London Bridge Experience, a dungeon full of dark corners, spooky figurines and scary stuff. The whole event was kinda dark and spooky so you won't see many pictures from the evening - yes, it was that dark! I found it a bit hard to take decent pictures of the new products but luckily we got a generous goody bag so I took new pictures for you.

There were few things going on at the event apart from showcase of new products. Anyone could get their nails painted with the new Midnight Gelly shades by NAILS BY METS team led by Metta Francis, an award winning manicurist (yes, I'm a fan!). Barry M didn't forget the music either, there was a DJ playing throughout the evening.

 

The food and deserts were carried around by what I think were London Experience employees with scary zombie-like makeup. I think I would be really terrified if I'd met them somewhere at night :D

  • Super Natural Palette - Eyeshadow palette with natural shades with a range of finishes. This palette is similar to Naked palettes but a good budget replacement (£6.49)

 

  • Light Me Up Liquid Highlighter - liquid highlighter that can be applied all over the face/added to moisturiser for a natural glow or as a regular highlighter. It has a very fine gold-beige shimmer and it creates a soft sheen on skin. It is available in Superdrug for £4.99 and will be available in Boots from 30th September.
 
  • Get Up & Glow Palette - A palette with powder bronzer, two blushers (peach and coral) and two highlighters. I like this one a lot because it has everything I need in one place. It is a Boots exclusive and will be available for £6.49 from 30th September.

 

  • Pout 'N' About Palette - Lip gloss palette with five shades including pink, coral, red and berry shades. This palette is available in Superdrug for £6.49 and will be available in Boots as well.

 

  • Midnight Gelly Nail Paint - last but not least, the nail polishes! These are four new off-black shades. They are very dark, blackened shades of green, purple, red and blue. They are available in Superdrug for £3.99 and will be available in Boots as well at the end of September.

 

I'm working on swatching the ne Midnight Gelly shades so you can expect them soon. Hope you've enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more!

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
