Hello lovelies,

It's nail art time! This time I wanted to do something really simple but elegant so I chose that classic look of ruffian manicure. What is not classic are the colours I picked. Bronze and copper colours are really 'IN' right now and All That Jazz Living In Luxury ticks all the boxes for me. And it wouldn't be a ruffian design without another, contrasting colour. I picked blue-green Own It also from All That Jazz.

I start with two coats of Own It - paint whole nail and as close to the cuticle as you can. Once the polish is dry apply Living in Luxury in the same way only don't push the polish as much towards the cuticle and leave a bit of Own It peaking out. I think I've left around 1-1,5 millimetres.
Topcoat and you're done!

 

Own It reviewed here, Living In Luxury reviewed here. I found an old bead necklace from Primark that I've had forever that went quite well with the manicure ;) What do you think?

 

All That Jazz polishes are available at Nail Harmony UK website and at All That Jazz UK website (turn your sound down, they have a loud video on home page that every time almost gives me cardiac arrest...thank me later lol ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

Here's the deal - I wanted to share this collection with you but at the moment I have almost no free time so I had to do skittle swatches otherwise I would never get to doing full swatches for you. I hope it will still give you some idea of the colours.

 

They all have almost the same formula that applied easily but was a bit runny and watery. That's where the thin brush comes in very handy because it makes it easier to control where the polish is applied. I needed three coats for each polish except for the Lilac Icing. Lilac Icing had a bit better pigmentation than the rest. They all dried smooth, glossy and fast. I've applied topcoat as well. For some reason I have expected them to have matte finish which I would have absolutely loved.

In the next part of this post I'll show you the skittle manicure with stamping over it.

 

I wanted to stick with Models Own polishes so I've used Chrome Gold from the Colour Chrome Collection to stamp with. I've also used Über Chic stamping plate 2-01 with stars and chevrons, Creative stamper and G&G HK Girl topcoat.

Pastels are very safe collection for spring and I'm sure we'll see some more from other brands as well. I like the shades but I was a bit disappointed that they weren't fully opaque in two coats. I also like the frosted glass bottles, it's a nice change from the ordinary bottle.

 

Models Own Icing polishes will retail for £4.99 each at www.modelsownit.com from 6th March, in Models Own UK Bottleshops from 7th March and in Superdrug stores nationwide from 11th March.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
