Hello lovelies,

 

Today is the Day 4 of the Nail Art Fashion Week and we take inspiration from fashion trends. There have been lots of plaids and patterned pieces among the Fashion Week collections but I came across a dress that perfectly demonstrated a single awesome trend - the colour-blocking! I knew instantly that I want to recreate it on my nails.

 

The dress I chose is from Hiromichi Nakano and it was inspired by the 60's, the era of Twiggy :) Hiromichi Nakano introduced this collection at the Tokyo Fashion Week. You can read more about it here.

So that's my nails and the inspiration. They remind me of candies for some reason and I like how bright they looked on me.

 

This was a very simple design to do. I've started to paint sections with two coat of each colour - Models Own Banana Split, Models Own Paradise Pink and Zoya Lillian. I've used either the nail polish brush or smaller nail art brush. Then I've painted the black lines with Color Club Black striper polish (use STASH15 for 15% discount). Finally, I've sealed the design with Seche Vite topcoat and later added a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat.

 

Here's how the manicure looks glossy ;)

Which is it this time? Matte or glossy? I still prefer the matte version, it's so much more unique. Here you can check my previous NAFW manicures:

Hello lovelies,

 

I've just realized that I've never shown you the manicure I wore to the Professional Beauty exhibition back in February. I think it's worth showing (I got some nice compliments on them ;) so let's have a look!

I've used mostly All That Jazz products starting with Base Line base coat. Then I've applied two coats of Barfly Blues nail polish and Metallic filigree stickers on accent nails. For this particular manicure I've chosen the Rose Buds pattern in gold colour. These stickers are pre-cut to different nail sizes so I've just picked the ones that fit the best. It's better to choose slightly bigger one and cut it one stuck to the nail. All That Jazz also newly sells full strips of these filigree stickers so you can cut out stripes, shapes or anything you want.

 

I've also added a mixture of crystals, beads and metallic items as additional accents and then topped it all with All That Jazz Top Note top coat. When working with the filigree stickers, I would recommend applying two coats of topcoat to get more even finish and longer wear. I did just one coat because I knew I will wear this look just for couple of days.

Every time I use these metallic stickers my nails feel 'million bucks' and I think I prefer the gold ones over all the other colours..although rose gold comes pretty close! Anyway that's all from me today.

 

Enjoy your evening everyone and see you soon! Lucie x
