Showing posts with label gradient

Hello lovelies,

As you can imagine I was cracking my brain as to what to do on my nails for my wedding. Today I want to show you a test manicure I did. Glitter gradient is simple yet so pretty and I wouldn't be ashamed to wear this as bridal nail art. However as you know I have chosen to go with stamped manicure in the end.

While I was wearing this test manicure there was a beautiful pink peony blooming in my mother-in-law's garden and it was the perfect fit!

I have used three coats of OPI I Theodora You because it's quite sheer. Then I've added the glitter to the base of the nail and spread it towards the middle, creating a gradient. The glitter polish is beautiful Shimmer Polish Alice.

 

I've previously created a glitter gradient tutorial so all you have to do is change the polishes ;)

 

 

 

 

Hope you've enoyed today's post even though it's a very simple design. Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

By now you probably have seen the new Barry M Sunset polishes swatched and reviewed on many other blogs so I want to show you the colours in nail art. For today's manicure I have picked Barry M You Drive Me Navy and The Way You Make Me Teal and combined them into a vertical gradient. That would never be enough for me so I've stamped a floral filigree design using Barry M Gold Foil, Creative Stamper and Pueen Lace Blossom stamping plate.

In this second part of the post I want to take a closer look at the Pueen Lace Blossom stamping plate. It is the second big plate that Pueen has released (the first one was the Fireworks Festival) and it's full of florals, lace but also some geometric patterns and for some reason, a Christmas tree(!). There are so many patterns that I adore, especially the florals and lace and the places where flowers meet the geometric patterns! The plate is well made and I've tested almost every inch of it and all patterns worked well and are nicely etched. The only place that I had to try stamp twice was a delicate lace but in the end it worked fine. The first thing I always do with new plates is to remove the (blue) protective foil. Never forget to remove it otherwise your plate won't work.

 

"This plate measures 7"x9.5" (18x24cm) with sanded edges and backing for easy, comfortable handling and a protective nylon screen. This image plate is made from high grade stainless steel and backing to prevent scratching during storage."

Another great plate from Pueen that I will enjoy using in the future :) It is currently available on their website for $18.99.
