Hello lovelies,

 

There are few new products from SpaRitual that recently came out and that are worth showing to you - they are the Spring Collection Rhythm (today I'll show you Cycles) and Unveil Peel Off basecoat. Rhythm collection consists of six shades in total and I've already reviewed Pattern from the, you can check it out here.

 

Cycles is a muted creme shade that is quite light but not light enough to be called pastel colour. The formula was easy to apply but little bit watery. Despite that, I needed just two thicker coats for full coverage. The drying time was average and the polish dried glossy. I still applied topcoat though.

I was testing the new SpaRitual Unveil Peel Off basecoat together with Cycles. It is a bit different from the other peel off base coats like OPI because it dries matte and chalky but it works well. I have applied it under Cycles and Soul (gold holo glitter) just to test it with glitter as well. Pictures below show how it looks applied and how it looks when it's dry and ready for use. I've applied two coats on the index finger.

The Unveil Peel Off basecoat has a thin brush which I quite liked working with because it helped me not to flood my cuticles. It is quite important not to with peel off base coats otherwise when you do clean up it might cause early lifting and peeling off. Once I wore the manicure for full 24 hours I peeled the polish off. It might a bit hard to find some good edge to start peeling but I always find it easier to start at the free edge. I 'wrap' the free edge with the peel off base coat and then with polish and when I want to remove it I use the other end of a hoof stick (the plastic handle) and gently scrape the free edge. This opens up the sealed nail and the polish can be peeled off easily. I find this base coat worked well, peeled off in a single piece and didn't chip after few hours.

Have a nice day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I've taken few days off from blogging because there was extra work around wedding paperwork and you probably know how stressful, stubborn and stupid councils and governmental organisations can be! Hopefully all be sorted out soon :)

 

Today I want to show you brand new stamping plates that I got. They are called B. Loves Plates and they come from Poland. Creator Anna, who writes B for Beautiful Nails blog (www.b-for-beautiful-nails.com has created three different plates for start and asked me if I could share them with you.

 

I have B.01 - geometry is perfect and B.02 - flower power plates and cute rainbow-coloured scraper:

Each plate has 21 designs and the rainbow branded back and comes with the blue protective foil. The dimensions of the plates are 9,5cm x 14,5cm and the individual images measure 1.6cm x 2.0 cm. The images are nicely etched and all stamp well, so far I have tried with five different polishes and they all worked well. I also got a cute branded scraper and badge.

 

As I've mentioned earlier, I got two plates but Anna has designed three in total. The B.01 - geometry is perfect is full of geometric patterns, B.02 - flower power has beautiful floral images and the last one available is B.03 - mind blown which features optical illusion images. B. Loves Plates products are available in their Etsy store for £9.99/$15 per plate.

 

I've prepared a nail art for you using B. Loves Plates flower power plate:

For this manicure I have used Dance Legend no.1051 Enamel Glass as a base colour, B. loves plates B.02 flower power plate & Dance Legend Stylet from the Steel collection to stamp the floral pattern. Then I've used round glitter from Bundle Monster set to decorate three nails. The glitter wasn't bleeding colour and has a pretty pearl sheen to it. I also used gold caviar beads from Ebay.

 

That's all from me today, you all have a lovely day! Lucie
