Showing posts with label gold

Hello lovelies,

 

I've just realized that I've never shown you the manicure I wore to the Professional Beauty exhibition back in February. I think it's worth showing (I got some nice compliments on them ;) so let's have a look!

I've used mostly All That Jazz products starting with Base Line base coat. Then I've applied two coats of Barfly Blues nail polish and Metallic filigree stickers on accent nails. For this particular manicure I've chosen the Rose Buds pattern in gold colour. These stickers are pre-cut to different nail sizes so I've just picked the ones that fit the best. It's better to choose slightly bigger one and cut it one stuck to the nail. All That Jazz also newly sells full strips of these filigree stickers so you can cut out stripes, shapes or anything you want.

 

I've also added a mixture of crystals, beads and metallic items as additional accents and then topped it all with All That Jazz Top Note top coat. When working with the filigree stickers, I would recommend applying two coats of topcoat to get more even finish and longer wear. I did just one coat because I knew I will wear this look just for couple of days.

Every time I use these metallic stickers my nails feel 'million bucks' and I think I prefer the gold ones over all the other colours..although rose gold comes pretty close! Anyway that's all from me today.

 

Enjoy your evening everyone and see you soon! Lucie x

 

 

Hello lovelies,

 

Today I want to show you an absolutely gorgeous shade from piCture pOlish - Ornate. It's another one in a row of collaboration shades with bloggers and this creation comes from A Lacquered Affair.

 

I couldn't help myself and I paired this polish with some flowers again. I love photos with flowers, they make them look so much more special!

Ornate* is muted medium purple creme filled with bijou holo particles and gold and pink hex glitters. Ornate looks like a very 'busy' polish in the bottle but once it's on the nails it all matches together and it looks rich and luxurious. The formula was easy to apply and fully opaque in two coats. It dried fast but slightly gritty due to the glitter in the polish. I would recommend using thicker topcoat like Seche Vite or some gel finish topcoat.

What a stunning and original colour! I don't have any other like this in my nail polish collection so thank you piCture pOlish for letting me review this beauty!

 

The Rose Gold rings I'm wearing are from So Nailicious Boutique and I won them in a giveaway a while back. They are still available if you want to buy them. I'd also like to mention that by buying from small shops like these you support small businesses, families and also fellow bloggers and that's always better than supporting corporations, right? In no way I am sponsored or affiliated with So Nailicious Boutique other than winning one of their giveaways and purchasing from them in the past.

 

Hope you've enjoyed the post and photos and will let me know how you like piCture pOlish Ornate ;) Have a lovely day! Lucie x
