Hello lovelies,

 

So today is my wedding day! I'm not online but I have scheduled this lovely post for you to enjoy. I don't think I have to introduce today's guest blogger, it's only Very Emily! Emily is a veteran blogger and we all know Emily's stunning photos and stamping nail art and today she prepared a beautiful bridal manicure.

 

 

Words can't explain what an honour it is to be guest posting for Lucie today! I've been reading and loving her blog for years. She never ceases to amaze me with her impeccable nail art and professionalism. When I got the chance to guest post for her I jumped at the chance!

 

Guest Post: Very Emily at Lucy's Stash!

 

 

So I'll be your host today on Lucy's Stash, my name is Emily and I've been blogging for over five years on my blog Very Emily. Since Lucie is getting married I wanted to do some wedding nail art but nothing too boring like a French manicure. I wanted to really glam it up!

For my manicure I used my favourite white polish, Cirque Colors Carpe Diem, a beautiful gold glitter from a Canadian indie, CANVAS Lacquer Bling It On. I also used some white pearls and gold steel balls, both from Born Pretty Store. Stamping plate MM56 from Messy Mansion and white stamping polish from Mundo De Unas (not pictured). Finally Super Chic Lacquer Marvel top coat.

I started with CANVAS Lacquer Bling It On as my base on all nails except my ring finger where I used Cirque Colors Carpe Diem as my base. On top of the gold glitter I stamped using the Messy Mansion MM56 plate and Mundo De Unas white, with my Creative Shop stamper. Then I blinged up my ring finger with a white pearl and four gold steel balls. Finished the look with glossy top coat, Super Chic Lacquer Marvel.

Hello lovelies,

 

Please give a warm welcome to Deborah from Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... blog! I've been following Deborah's work for years now because (she started blogging in the same year as me) and always enjoy her immaculate swatches and many indie brands she features. Today she has prepared a cool stamped manicure...

 

 

Hi everyone! My name is Deborah and I am one of the 2 bloggers from the nail polish blog Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... When Lucie asked for guest bloggers, I immediately jumped at the chance - she is one of my favorite bloggers so I am very proud and honored to be posting here today. Since she always does such nice nail art, I decided to create some of my own to share with you.

My look is created with stamping - I started with a nice and neutral base. The polish is from the Dance Legend Gel-Effect range and goes by number 1031. I cleaned up a bit and while it dried, I used the Dance Legend Pure Manicure cuticle protector. It's one of those latex barriers that you brush on and let dry. When you stamp your nails, you simply peel away the barrier when you are done and there isn't such a mess on your fingers!

 

I stamped using a plate from MoYou London, it's from the Hipster collection (plate 07). Isn't this cube design amazing? The stamping polish is a sample formula so I can't really tell anything about that, but I thought the shade of blue would look great against the pale creme base. It also picked up very nicely, without gaps or air bubbles.

 

To finish it off I used some topcoat and the result is this kinda retro looking stampicure! I hope you enjoy this look and maybe see you on my own blog sometime.

 

 

Thank you Deborah for this lovely post! It is indeed very retro-looking and I simply must get that stamping plate. You can follow Deborah's work at:
