Hello lovelies,

 

I have a big announcement to make - my second blog Lucy's Stash PRO is live! It is available at http://lucysstashpro.com/ and apart from introductory post, I have published the first post which will tell you more about my 'nail tech studies' ;) That space will be dedicated to any professional products and 'client' nails so I won't bother YOU, nail polish lovers with acrylics and other stuff. However I will add a link to the menu for an easy access if you'll want to check it out!

 

The header of the blog features today's manicure - Neon Patterned Design for which I have used Color Club Look, Don’t Tusk and acrylic paint. The whole manicure took hours but I absolutely loved the result..matte and glossy!

And since neons beautifully glow under UV/black light, I had to take some pictures as well. LOVE IT!!!

I hope you love the nails as much as I do, I almost cried when I had to take them off :D

 

Don't forget to check out Lucy's Stash PRO and read about my nail school experience (psst, there are pictures of my first artificial nails too!). The blog is still very new so some minor changes might still be made but I just couldn't wait to share it with you!

 

Let me know your thoughts ;) Lucie x

 

 

Hello lovelies,

I've been doing quite a few floral manicures lately, haven't I? But..they are so pretty! This manicure came about because I purchased NSI Secrets acrylic paints (black and white) that are supposedly great for one stroke painting. Of course I wanted to test them so I did these basic one stroke flowers skittle manicure.

My verdict? The black paint is really well pigmented, actually so far the best pigmented black paint I own. The white is good as well but I still needed to go over the petals three times to have them fully opaque. I will be testing the white further in some different nail art techniques so this is not my final view ;)

 

I have used Barry M Miami as a base colour and then I've used NSI Secrets Prism Paints in Deep Secrets (black) and Little White Lies (white). Then I've used small dotting tool and rhinestones to finish the rest of the nails.

 

Would you like to see a video tutorial for this kind of one stroke flowers? Let me know!

 

Have a lovely day. Lucie x
