Hello lovelies,

 

Today I have a stamped metallic nails for you and a cute silver bracelet to complement it. I have been playing with the Models Own Colour Chrome collection and this is one of my experiments.

This look is very easy to achieve, here's a step-by-step:

 

  1. Paint the nails with two coats of Models Own Chrome Gold
  2. Paint latex around nails to avoid lengthy clean up or use sticky tape if you don't have latex. I have used Simply Peel latex barrier
  3. Using make up sponge, sponge on Models Own Chrome Silver. You can either sponge just silver or you can paint stripes of gold and silver on the sponge and sponge them on the whole nail together. The second method get more blended look
  4. Stamping - using MoYou London Fashionista plate 12 and white stamping polish, stamp on your chosen pattern
  5. Remove the latex barrier
  6. Do any additional clean up with brush and acetone
  7. Apply topcoat on all nails

 

This design went perfectly with my stainless steel & crystals Edblad bracelet:

Interesting piece, isn't it? I've discovered Edblad jewellery only recently when kind people from Chriselli.com offered to send me couple of pieces. I find them very unique and modern and quite strong and durable (definitely not a flimsy cheap piece of metal). I also like the crystals incorporated into the steel, they make it look much girlier ;) This particular bracelet is currently available here for £35. What do you think of this bracelet? Do you like contemporary pieces of jewellery or do you prefer more classic look?

 

Have a lovely day everyone! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

It's nail art time! This time I wanted to do something really simple but elegant so I chose that classic look of ruffian manicure. What is not classic are the colours I picked. Bronze and copper colours are really 'IN' right now and All That Jazz Living In Luxury ticks all the boxes for me. And it wouldn't be a ruffian design without another, contrasting colour. I picked blue-green Own It also from All That Jazz.

I start with two coats of Own It - paint whole nail and as close to the cuticle as you can. Once the polish is dry apply Living in Luxury in the same way only don't push the polish as much towards the cuticle and leave a bit of Own It peaking out. I think I've left around 1-1,5 millimetres.
Topcoat and you're done!

 

Own It reviewed here, Living In Luxury reviewed here. I found an old bead necklace from Primark that I've had forever that went quite well with the manicure ;) What do you think?

 

All That Jazz polishes are available at Nail Harmony UK website and at All That Jazz UK website (turn your sound down, they have a loud video on home page that every time almost gives me cardiac arrest...thank me later lol ;)

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
