Hello lovelies,

 

Today's nails are a bit crazy but let's give them a chance! I have been playing around with the new Models Own Festival collection that is full of bright neon polishes. I also got some Pueen Vinyl Nail Stencil Set to try so I've used swirls from it to achieve today's look:

I have started with two coats of Models Own Green Fields and a coat of Seche Vite top coat. This helps to dry the polish faster so that I can use the stencils without ripping off the nail polish below (always allow around 10 minutes to dry).

 

Next I've placed the Pueen swirl stencils on nails exactly where I wanted them. Just before I painted each nail with coat of Models Own Purple Bandana, I've pressed the stencil on the nail again to make sure it's not peeling off anywhere. Straight after painting the nail I've removed the stencil as it helps with creating crisp lines. Once dry a bit I've sealed all nails with Seche Vite top coat.

 

And of course the pictures under UV light are my favourite (I finally got a replacement UV torch!). These polishes glow super bright! What do you think? Too crazy? I like crazy ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much, I'm in some kind of a block. I don't feel like doing anything nails or blogging, it's probably all the wedding stress setting in. I'll try to post more often but if I don't then you know why.

 

I think it's time for me to finally try the leadlighting technique. I know this is old news and I'm very much behind but I just had to try it. This is really my first attempt. It is not a massive fail but it could've looked better.

 

I was testing out the Dance Legend Top Aquarelle collection polishes. They are basically tinted polishes that can be mixed and layered and can create wonderful effects.

I started with two coats of Models Own Chrome Green, then I've stamped with Konad black stamping polish and Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate. Then I've used doting tool and Dance Legend Top Aquarelle in Levitan and Picasso to fill in the patterns.

 

This cool pattern reminded me of peacock feathers so it was one of the first I wanted to try. The Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate is huge and full of different patterns and images. I will definitely show you more soon!

 

Have a lovely Sunday! Lucie x
