Hello lovelies,

I'm excited to show you a preview of the new Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection! I've pre-ordered it and it came extra fast. I've paid £20 in total because I've bought the whole set.

I didn't have time to do full swatches so I'll show you at least skittles as who knows when I'll be able to swatch them...

Lucy's Stash - Models Own Fruit Pastel Collection

They are all pastel shades which resemble the last year's Ice cream collection quite a lot but shades differ a bit. What's new though is that each polish is scented. These are the shades and their scents:
Blue - Blueberry Muffin
Purple - Grape Juice
Pink - Strawberry Tart
Yellow - Banana Split
Green - Apple Pie

I couldn't smell the scents while painting but they didn't stink much. After the nail polish dried properly the polish started to smell very nice, almost no chemical smell. They also got a cute stickers at their caps and when you scratch the cap it smells as well. The smell of the cap is stronger than how the nail polish smells in the end.

The formula of these was good application-wise. I needed two thicker coats for the coverage in the pictures. If you are used to applying thin coats then you'll need three.

Hello lovelies,

today is a special day - not only I have published my Spring giveaway but I also want to show you my first stab on galaxy nails. I try not to do what everybody else does and I wasn't very keen on doing galaxy nails for a long time because there were already so many beautiful manicures that I couldn't possibly compare to. Well I gave it a try and this is the result....

I have used 2 coats of WingDust Space Cadet* (black holo polish with bigger glitter in it) as a base. Then I've used makeup sponge and China Glaze Dance Baby, OPI Alpine Snow, China Glaze Urban-Night and China Glaze Man Hunt for the galaxy nail art.

Please don't forget that I have entered a nail art competition and I would be endlessly grateful is you would vote for me. Simply 'Like' the following photo on FB (You can also like the Nail World page, they share lots of nail art):  http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=385731414858181&set;=a.381245008640155.1073741825.328289467269043&type;=3&theater;  THANK YOU!
