Hello lovelies,

 

Last week, I've had an interesting proposition from lovely people at Tangle Teezer. They've asked me if I'd like to create a nail art inspired by their Tangle Teezer hair brushes and tell you about a Twitter competition between Tangle Teezer and Little Ondine. I immediately said yes because I'm a huge fan of Tangle Teezer (TT) brushes and I haven't been using any others for the past 4 or so years.

 

Once I browsed the TT website to look for an inspiration, I came across their Salon Elite line full of colourful brushes. I've had an idea for fun, colourful and almost pop art stylised images so I tried to get as close as possible to my vision.

I've used two Tangle Teezers in the photos - Lemon Sherbet, a canary yellow and pastel pink and Blue Blush, bright blue and neon pink.

 

As for my nails, I wanted to match up the polishes as close to the TT colours as possible and then stick to the colour combinations on my nails. I also didn't want a busy design bt something very simple yet bold. This design was most likely done before but I didn't intentionally copy anyone and just played around :)

 

For my left hand I've used KIKO 295 Cerulean Blue, a bright blue nail polish and then I've used striper and painted the middle section with Models Own Pink Wellies, a neon pink polish. On my right hand, I've painted my nails with three coats of Accessorize Bubble Gum, a pink creme colour. The using striper again, I've painted the middle section with Rimmel 452 Chin up, Buttercup, a bright yellow creme. All sealed with Seche Vite topcoat which ultimately betrayed me at this instance and I had quite noticeable shrinkage after couple of hours :'(

 

Here's the rest of the photos I did for you with the help of my husband and keep reading for the details of the competition and how to join!

Hello lovelies,

 

First of all, I'm starting like an adjustment period for you where I'll be posting both my square and rounded nails depending on what I want to post so don't be suprised ;) Also I'm going on my late honeymoon (finally!) so in the next week and a half I probably won't be able to post much ;)

 

Anyway, it's time for ABC Challenge and my letter D is for DELICATE! You can read everything about the challenge in this post from Emily from Nail Polish Society, who is hosting it :)

 

I've tested a new to me nail art product - a Be Creative Nail Art Pen and created a delicate lace nails. Let's have a look:

I've used the new Barry M Boots exclusives Golden Sands and Beachy Keen as base polishes and I added topcoat. I wore the nails just plain for a day and next day I've decided to test my Be Creative Nail Art Pen. I've bought this pen some time last year and never really gotten around to use it and this was my first attempt on nails. First, I've lightly buffed the top half of my nails where I wanted the lace to be. This helps the paint to adhere better and apply more evenly. Then I dipped my pen into a Be Creative White acrylic paint and draw few squiggles on the paper first (as per instructions). Then I've drawn the lace and the result is above.

 

The pen is quite easy to work with once you get used to it. It is very different to painting with brushes but you can achieve thin lines and swirls much easier. The more pressure you put on the pen, the thicker the lines will be. I've had few 'teething' problems at the beginning where the pen didn't want to draw. I've visited Be Creative website and found out that my paint was too thick. Easy fix - I added more water to top up the pot and shaked. After that the pen started to work fine. I think I'll try and use the pen more often because it's yet another cool nail art tool and I just love making my life easier :) The pen is pretty inexpensive, selling for £8.10 at sambiddle.co.uk
