Hello lovelies,

 

Firstly I have to say this - I FINALLY OWN CONNECT THE DOTS!!! If you've been interested in nail polish for years you will know that Lynnderella's Connect The Dots was one of the first, maybe even the first indie black and white glitter topper and 'everybody' wanted it. I wasn't as lucky in restocks and I wasn't able to get it but now I finally own it!

 

I have used BE Creative Make Up Clouds and Magma to create a monochrome gradient base. Then I layered one coat of Lynnderella Connect The Dots over it. One coat was all I needed because the bottle is loaded with glitter in different shapes and sizes. The clear base also has glass iridescent particles giving the topper some sparkle. The glitter dried fast but a bit uneven so I applied a coat of Seche Vite to get smooth surface.

This was also the first time I was trying out BE Creative Make Up polishes. They come in quite a specific and unusual bottle shape that to me evokes hourglass. The cap is made out of matte plastic and has white branding on it. I like the matte cap as it gives it elegant look. The polishes were good to work with so I will be showing you some more later. BE Creative Make Up polishes are currently available in stores in Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary and Malaysia and Germany (check locations here). Hopefully they will be available in the UK soon if they are not yet and I will inform you as soon as I know more.

 

As for the Lynnderella Connect The Dots - I'm so happy to have it. I do have many other black and white glitter toppers that I have collected over the years but CTD is still unique to my collection. Lynnderella polishes are available at their online store and eBay store. You can also check out the latest colours on their blog.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

Hope you're all well! I'm currently all busy preparing new posts and I have so many new things to show you, weekend can't come soon enough!

 

Today I want to show you a Bejewelled Gradient Manicure I've done a while ago with Models Own polishes. I wanted to achieve a textured finish so I have used Models Own Dancing Queen from Mirrorball collection which is a glitter polish. I applied it to the tips and created a gradient effect. The base polish is Models Own Paradise Garage from the Disco Pants collection.

Sparkly, huh? I would probably need at least two coats of topcoat if I was to wear this look but I wanted it rough and textured on purpose to show of that fabulous glitter!

 

Models Own polishes are available at at Models Own website, at Models Own Bottle shops and selected Boots stores.

 

Have a lovely day and stay polished! Lucie x
