Hello lovelies,

 

Hope you're all well and looking forward to the holidays! I feel like I've been slacking with posting lately but on the other hand I'm preparing quite a few tutorials for this blog and for Lucy's Stash PRO!

 

For today's post I've prepared another gold foil nail art so I hope you'll like it.

I've started with two coats of Color Club Apple Of My Eye. Then I've used a fluffy brush to apply foil glue in random streaks. I wanted to achieve uneven and broken up look. Once the glue dried and was completely clear I pressed the gold foil on the nail. Then I've sealed the foil with Dance Legend AquaGenetic.

 

Lastly, I've put on nails some cute rose nail charms from The Sparkly Shop! Laura, the owner of the shop is a fellow nail blogger and very dear to me and she has offered an exclusive discount to you, my readers! Use code LUCY15 for 15% discount. The Sparkly Shop has all the different glitters for glitter placement, nail charms and more, a heaven for nail addicts :D

Color Club Apple Of My Eye* is a stunning red-based berry purple, I absolutely adore these colours! It looks vampy and beautiful by itself and I really liked it on my nails. The formula was easy to apply but the pigmentation was a bit lower. I've applied two thicker coats but three would be even better. Apple Of My Eye is a part of the new Made In New York collection.

 

Color Club polishes are available at their website and pretty much everywhere in drug stores and online so I'm sure you won't have troubles finding them.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I've just realised that I never shown you proper swatches of the gorgeous new releases for Barry M Silk Collection in darker autumnal colours. There were three new colours added to the Silk Collection and all three have smooth satin finish.

 

Barry M Silk Collection for A/W 2014 - Poppy, Orchid & Forest - Review & Swatches

 

 

Poppy - berry magenta with satin matte finish. Poppy has gorgeous warm colour with very fine sparkle that is muted by the satin finish but comes to life if worn with topcoat. It applied very nicely and is well-pigmented. I've applied two regular coats and no topcoat.

Orchid - rich, blue-based purple with satin matte finish. Orchid is beautifully vivid and stunning purple. The formula was easy to work with and nice to apply and this shade was also well-pigmented and opaque in two coats. The finish wasn't streaky at all and I'm not wearing topcoat.

Forest - blue teal with satin matte finish. I would probably expect Forest to be more green than blue but despite the name the colour itself is very nice teal. It also has this subtle shimmer to it. It applied nicely and two coats were fully opaque. I'm not wearing topcoat.

This range is meant to be worn matte - either without topcoat or topped with matte topcoat to prolong the manicure. BUT they also look stunning with topcoat. These polishes have fine shimmer to it that completely transforms the polish when you add topcoat. I really like how well-pigmented they all are, they will be great for nail art, in fact I've already done one nail art with them here.

 

Barry M Silk collection and the rest of the range is available at Barry M website, in Boots and Superdrug stores.

 

Have a lovely day and stay polished! Lucie x
