Hello lovelies,

 

It's the last day of the month and that means Nailvengers Assemble! nail art challenge! Joining me in the challenge will be Sammy (The Nailasaurus), Alice (One Nail To Rule Them All) and Allie (Brit Nails). Amelia (xAmeliax) won't be able to participate this month.

 

This month's theme is Gradient Nail Art. I'm already in kind of a Halloween mood so I did dark-tipped gradient that reminds me of zombie-ish theme.

Nailvengers Assemble! - Gradient Nail Art

 

For this manicure I have used Pandora's Polish, a brand new to me. It is part of PANDORA’S Makeup Box brand, a brainchild of Susan Kirsch. The creation of PANDORA’S Makeup Box was an extension of Susan’s love for people and makeup, as well as her understanding of her clients' needs and comfort with their everyday makeup routine.

I've been sent two shades to try - Chai Latte and Flanel. By themselves they are very chic and office-friendly and very nice for Autumn season. They both have very good and well-pigmented formula which means two coats were fully opaque. Both shades are available here.

 

I've decided to combine Chai Latte and Flanel into this gradient and then I took and inspiration from Boom Nails LDN and drawn just simple lines over it using Nails Supreme Nail Art Pen.

Hello lovelies,

I've realised that I haven't posted a single video tutorial last month! Let me make it up to you ;)

Today's nail art is a gradient I stamped over so it's nothing too complicated but I get asked for tutorials for simpler manicures so I did this one.

I have used OPI You’re So Vain-illa and Sorry I’m Fizzy Today for the gradient base. Then MoYou London PRO collection 14 XL and MoYou Nails black special nail polish for the stamping. My stamper is a soft silicone stamper from Winstonia Store.

 

I'm sure you've spotted that there are two different products with MoYou in them - they are two separate companies so don't confuse them. MoYou London has rectangular stamping plates, MoYou Nails has circular plates.

 

 

 

 

Simples, right? I hope you've enjoyed the tutorial and don't forget to let me know your thoughts in the comment. I'm wondering if I should skip showing products used and just list them in the description - what do you think about that?

 

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day! Lucie x
