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

Hello lovelies,

Long time no see! I've been so swamped with swatching and editing that I had no time to write new post! Today is one of those days when it's getting dark around 4:30pm which is soo depressing and I can't take daylight photos and it sucks! The manicure I'll show you now was luckily photographed few weeks ago and I managed to get some decent light and I love how the photos came out! There's A LOT of them because I just couldn't bring myself to narrowing them down more and I hope you'll love them too ;)

So let's have a look...

Oh how I love this red! I've previously shown you this gorgeous polish in a review and it's of course HJ Manicure Red Wine! This polish is beautifully glossy and it has a hint of jelly formula but it's fully opaque in two coats. It perfectly matched the gerbera flower I've had so I couldn't help myself and pair them up.

 

And the gold stickers you ask? They are All That Jazz Metallic Filigree Stickers in a CROSS pattern. Guys, these stickers are awesome! I've bought loads at the Olympia Beauty exhibition in London back in October and next time I'll buy more next time. These are quite thin and only the pattern peels off so there is no clear backing in between the gold lines. This made it fit beautifully on the nail without creasing or folding. I never use stickers because they just generally suck and are not suitable for my super curved nails but I love these! These should be sealed with two coats of topcoat which I agree with. I've used just one coat to get a bit of a 3D effect but you can achieve nice and smooth surface.

 

Also what I find great is the price - one set of 10 stickers will only cost you £1.79 and even less at an exhibition where they usually give some extra discount. If you'd like to check them out, check out All That Jazz website.

I hope I didn't bore you with the overload of pictures but....pretty :D I'll definitely be doing some more manicures with the stickers as they were super easy to use and they look stunning, don't you think?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
