Hello lovelies,

 

I finally got to try nail stickers that make it incredibly easy to create zig-zag nail art. Some of you might call it chevron but I'm still undecided on what is the correct term :D Anyway - I have created 'Zig-Zag madness' manicure where I've combined zig zag pattern created with stickers but also one painted freehand.

I've used Stick Me Nails stickers that made the whole process very easy. I've intentionally spaced them out so the coloured parts would be wider but if you'd like the zig-zag pattern evenly spaced then you could apply a whole bit of stickers on the nail and then peel off every other stripe/sticker. However that seems to me like a bit of a waste so I didn't want to do that. They were pliable enough to bend around my nail and they aadhered nicely so i really have nothing to bad to say about them. A sheet 100 of these stickers is sold for $5 in Stick Me Nails Etsy store. Stick Me Nails are also on Instagram so follow them for all the news and offers!

 

I have also used two Renaissance Cosmetics polishes - Rosie Osie and Nightshade. They are both beautiful jelly-based polishes with shimmer and glitter in them and I have used just one coat in the pictures. Two coats would make the polishes darker and fully opaque. You can find Renaissance Cosmetics on Instagram and Facebook too and in case you didn't know, the creative soul behind this brand is talented Meghan aka Will Paint Nails For Food.

 

Hope you liked this manicure and will stop by tomorrow for more nails ;) Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I've done one more nail art design with Illamasqua Shattered Stars polishes from the Glamore collection so this is a great time to publish it since I'm still running the Illamasqua GIVEAWAY! The giveaway ends on Sunday so you have few last days to enter.

 

I opted for a simple alternate stripe pattern using Illamasqua Marquise and Fire Rose and black acrylic paint.

I couln't help myself and put on a coat of topcoat as well so the picture above shows how different the whole manicure looks with topcoat :) I really like both versions though..

 

Anyways, don't forget to enter the Illamasqua giveaway and if you'd like to purchase these polishes, you can do so here.

 

Have a lovely day! x
