Hello lovelies,

I can't stop inspiration nor time so I just went with it. I had a sudden urge to create more Easter eggs and I thought it would be such a shame not to share it with you. These are the last, I PROMISE! Then it will go back to nails ;)

After I finished the dotted eggs, I had an idea to use the alcohol inks that I bought for marble nail art and I loved the effect! You can combine any colours you want or even use one colour and just do different shades of it. After the marbling it felt like there's something missing so I painted cracks, dots and precious stone patterns on the eggs to give them that extra spark.

And of course I filmed the whole process for you so you can see how exactly I did all three of them!

 

 

 

 

 

I LOVE various crafts and if I had more time I would do a lot more. What did you think of this tutorial? Liked it? Disliked it? Either way let me know, I love reading all your comments and when I can I respond.

 

Have a happy rest of Easter Monday/Seder (if you celebrate it) and see you soon! Lucie x

 

EDIT: I meant to post this midday but the video took staggering 8,5 hours(!!!) to upload. I'm no quitter so I'm posting it anyway ;p

Hello lovelies,

 

Today I have a stamped metallic nails for you and a cute silver bracelet to complement it. I have been playing with the Models Own Colour Chrome collection and this is one of my experiments.

This look is very easy to achieve, here's a step-by-step:

 

  1. Paint the nails with two coats of Models Own Chrome Gold
  2. Paint latex around nails to avoid lengthy clean up or use sticky tape if you don't have latex. I have used Simply Peel latex barrier
  3. Using make up sponge, sponge on Models Own Chrome Silver. You can either sponge just silver or you can paint stripes of gold and silver on the sponge and sponge them on the whole nail together. The second method get more blended look
  4. Stamping - using MoYou London Fashionista plate 12 and white stamping polish, stamp on your chosen pattern
  5. Remove the latex barrier
  6. Do any additional clean up with brush and acetone
  7. Apply topcoat on all nails

 

This design went perfectly with my stainless steel & crystals Edblad bracelet:

Interesting piece, isn't it? I've discovered Edblad jewellery only recently when kind people from Chriselli.com offered to send me couple of pieces. I find them very unique and modern and quite strong and durable (definitely not a flimsy cheap piece of metal). I also like the crystals incorporated into the steel, they make it look much girlier ;) This particular bracelet is currently available here for £35. What do you think of this bracelet? Do you like contemporary pieces of jewellery or do you prefer more classic look?

 

Have a lovely day everyone! Lucie x
