Hello lovelies,

Long time no see! I've been so swamped with swatching and editing that I had no time to write new post! Today is one of those days when it's getting dark around 4:30pm which is soo depressing and I can't take daylight photos and it sucks! The manicure I'll show you now was luckily photographed few weeks ago and I managed to get some decent light and I love how the photos came out! There's A LOT of them because I just couldn't bring myself to narrowing them down more and I hope you'll love them too ;)

So let's have a look...

Oh how I love this red! I've previously shown you this gorgeous polish in a review and it's of course HJ Manicure Red Wine! This polish is beautifully glossy and it has a hint of jelly formula but it's fully opaque in two coats. It perfectly matched the gerbera flower I've had so I couldn't help myself and pair them up.

 

And the gold stickers you ask? They are All That Jazz Metallic Filigree Stickers in a CROSS pattern. Guys, these stickers are awesome! I've bought loads at the Olympia Beauty exhibition in London back in October and next time I'll buy more next time. These are quite thin and only the pattern peels off so there is no clear backing in between the gold lines. This made it fit beautifully on the nail without creasing or folding. I never use stickers because they just generally suck and are not suitable for my super curved nails but I love these! These should be sealed with two coats of topcoat which I agree with. I've used just one coat to get a bit of a 3D effect but you can achieve nice and smooth surface.

 

Also what I find great is the price - one set of 10 stickers will only cost you £1.79 and even less at an exhibition where they usually give some extra discount. If you'd like to check them out, check out All That Jazz website.

I hope I didn't bore you with the overload of pictures but....pretty :D I'll definitely be doing some more manicures with the stickers as they were super easy to use and they look stunning, don't you think?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

It's that time of the month again when I'm joining Paint All The Nails group of bloggers to do a nail art challenge. This month's theme is dry brush...easy peasy! Dry brush is a very simple and begginer technique where by removing almost all the polish from the brush you can create a distressed or brush-stroke look. It does not require any special tools and it is incredibly easy and versatile, you only need a nail polish brush.

 

I've decided to do my manicure using polishes from the A England To Emily Bronte collection. I've used Cathy as a base, then did the dry brush technique with Wuthering Heights, Spirit Of The Moors and Let Me In. I finished up with a coat of my trusty Seche Vite topcoat and few metal studs.
