Showing posts with label grey

Hello lovelies,

 

I have decided that this whole week will be dedicated to A England and the new 'To Emily Bronte' collection. Every day I'll show you one of the new shades and there will be time for nail art and giveaway too so stay tuned!

 

About To Emily Bronte collection: 'The collection of 5 shades is dedicated to the author of the worldwide famous English gothic novel Wuthering Heights: translated in many languages, adapted in movies, theatres and TV series; and subject of famous poignant song by Kate Bush.'

 

Today I want to introduce you to Cathy, 'ghostly, eerie white grey holo with an illusory flash of blue the unhappy tormented female protagonist fluctuating as a ghost after her tragic and premature death'.

Cathy is gorgeous and elegant pale lavender grey with very fine holo and iridescent blue shimmer particles. I'm wearing two coats and no topcoat, the polish is still nicely glossy on its own. I found the formula to be little bit thicker than the rest of the collection which caused me to have few issues with application. If applied thinly, the polish can be a bit patchy as it dries fast. Therefore I had to start applying it thicker and that solved the problem. As you can see, the final look was great even without topcoat and nobody would probably guess I had some problems.

 

This thicker formula isn't usual for A England as almost every polish I've tried before was flawless. But all in all, nice polish that just needs a bit of a practice to use, that's all. Tomorrow I'll show you another shade from To Emily Bronte collection so stop by ;)

 

To Emily Bronte collection is available at A England website or from one of the international distributors.

 

Hope you've enjoyed the post and have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

So today I am joining a nail art challenge/link up after a long, long time! The theme is negative space to which I couldn't resist! Joining me in this challenge will be many talented nail bloggers to which I'll link at the end of this post so you can check their manicures too.

My negative space manicure is based on basic triangle shape and two different colours:

I don't do negative space very often because I don't like to show my naked nails much so I hope you like it ;)

 

The main role in this manicure is played by the new 'Ard As Nails* polishes! I finally got to try this British indie brand and I've used two shades - medium pink Gregory's Girl and grey creme Slated. They were well-pigmented so it was easy to work with them, I'll do a review later.

 

I've also used a striping tape, sellotape, nail art brush, OPI Natural Nail Base Coat and my trusty Seche Vite top coat.
