Hello lovelies,

 

So I'm off on holiday/wedding break and I have many guest posts from great bloggers prepared for you. Today I'd like to introduce you to a lovely Australian blogger Christine who runs blog called Serenity Nails. Christine does beautiful swatches but I've asked her to prepare some nail art for you guys and she came up with a 'Delicate Floral Meets Bold Monochrome'. Enjoy!

 

 

Heya! I’m so excited to be here and share one of my favourite nail looks with you! I love nail art, I love nail art even more when it’s easy to achieve!

 

Floral nail designs are always high on my list of beautiful looks. I love the whimsical and feminine nature of them, but for this mani I wanted to pair the floral with a contrasting bold to make a statement. I decided to add some monochrome stamping in a standout pattern to throw the mani into a place it never dreamed of.

I first did my floral pattern using Dance Legend Tatiana from their Binary range as my base. I then applied some MILV nail decals with the floral design on my nails.

 

I wanted a simple black and white monochrome look on my remaining nails, so using Cirque Carpe Diem as my base, I stamped using Cirque Memento Mori on top. The pattern I chose is from the Moyou ‘The Pro’ collection, plate 01.

I really enjoyed wearing this and thought it brought a bit of fun to a pretty and girly design.

 

 

What do you think of this edgy floral mani? Is it something you would wear?

I want to thank Lucie and you, her readers, for having me here today, it’s been an honour.

 

 

Thank you very much Christine for a great post and nail art inspiration! I would definitely wear this chic look :) If you don't already follow Serenity Nails, you can do so at the following social media...

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm so so happy that I can welcome Lindsey from Wondrously Polished here at Lucy's Stash! I absolutely love her creative designs and especially her floral print manis. Today's design is another stunner and Lindsey's blog definitely deserves a visit!

 

Hello, all! I'm Lindsey from Wondrously Polished and I'm incredibly honored and excited to get to guest post for the lovely and talented Lucie today! I know we're all missing her manis since she's on holiday, but hopefully you won't mind my stopping by and sharing a look in her stead :)

My mani today was a bit of a no brainer as I knew I wanted to paint a floral design. I love painting vintage inspired looks with a funky yet modern twist, so I knew I wanted to create something that incorporated those element. Floral print has come a long way since your mom's ugly sofa and I enjoy using updated color schemes to give new life to vintage inspired patterns.

For today's look, I stumbled upon a fantastic fabric print created by Elizabeth Olwen and knew I wanted to give it a shot almost immediately. I think her print is very indicative of the style of nail art I typically like to create so it felt very fitting for today's guest post.

For this look, I started with a base of OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls (aka, the best off-white around!) and used a teeny tiny trimmed detail brush to add the floral print. For any curious minds out there, the blue and orange are American Apparel's Mount Royal and Palm Springs, the teal is Essie's Ruffles & Feathers and the tan is an acrylic paint. I just love these shades together!

 

 

 

Thank you all so much for taking time to check out my post, and thanks again to Lucie for the opportunity! Feel free to check out my Facebook and Instagram pages to follow along with all my manis! Hope you all enjoyed this look and I'd love to hear what you think of it!

 

Happy Polishing :)
