Hello lovelies,

 

Ready for more Autumn colours? Well this is my take on Zoya Entice collection. The second half, Ignite will come soon. The Entice collection consists of 5 creme shade one slightly shimmery shade. They are a mixture of cool and warm shades and some of them will be great not only for Autumn but for Winter season too.

Nyssa - light brown creme. Nyssa is like a cross between milk chocolate and caramel. The formula was easy to apply but slightly less pigmented. I needed two thicker coats for good coverage. It dried fast and glossy.

Claire - dark burgundy creme. The colour is beautifully rich and smooth and I love the red undertone in it. The formula was good to apply, a bit streaky in the first coat but the second coat sorted everything out. It dried fast and glossy.

Margo - medium plum purple creme. It's a bit warmer than classic blue-based plum purple which makes it very appealing to me. It applied nicely and two coats provided full coverage. It also dried fast and glossy.

Veronica - red-based berry creme. I love this colour, so up my street! It's got great pigmentation so two thin coats were perfect. I didn't have any problems with application and it dried fast.

Geneviev - smoky grey creme with satin grey finish. I think Geneviev is kind of an ugly duckling of this collection. I wouldn't 'pick it out of a crowd' but it transforms into a very chic colour on nails. It dries very fast so I had to work fast to avoid patching. It's also slightly less pigmented so I needed two thick coats.

Ryan - navy blue creme. Another stunning shade I love! Ryan is rich, deep blue, absolutely perfect for those sailor summer designs. It applied very nicely and was also well pigmented. All I needed were two thin coats for full coverage.

Entice is a great collection full of colours perfect for the upcoming seasons. They all had pretty good formula - some a bit better than others. My absolute favourites must be Veronica and Ryan but the others are beautiful too.

 

This collection is available now directly from Zoya.com for $9 USD each, or $54 for the whole collection or at at The Nail & Beauty Link (UK) and at Nail Polish Direct (UK).

 

Stay tuned for the second half of the collection! Hope you've enjoy the swatches and have a lovely weekend. Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I finally got to try nail stickers that make it incredibly easy to create zig-zag nail art. Some of you might call it chevron but I'm still undecided on what is the correct term :D Anyway - I have created 'Zig-Zag madness' manicure where I've combined zig zag pattern created with stickers but also one painted freehand.

I've used Stick Me Nails stickers that made the whole process very easy. I've intentionally spaced them out so the coloured parts would be wider but if you'd like the zig-zag pattern evenly spaced then you could apply a whole bit of stickers on the nail and then peel off every other stripe/sticker. However that seems to me like a bit of a waste so I didn't want to do that. They were pliable enough to bend around my nail and they aadhered nicely so i really have nothing to bad to say about them. A sheet 100 of these stickers is sold for $5 in Stick Me Nails Etsy store. Stick Me Nails are also on Instagram so follow them for all the news and offers!

 

I have also used two Renaissance Cosmetics polishes - Rosie Osie and Nightshade. They are both beautiful jelly-based polishes with shimmer and glitter in them and I have used just one coat in the pictures. Two coats would make the polishes darker and fully opaque. You can find Renaissance Cosmetics on Instagram and Facebook too and in case you didn't know, the creative soul behind this brand is talented Meghan aka Will Paint Nails For Food.

 

Hope you liked this manicure and will stop by tomorrow for more nails ;) Lucie x
