Hello lovelies,

 

I'm back from a short holiday break in Czech Republic so I've been very quiet this week. In the light of this week's horrific attacks I wasn't going to post any more nails BUT I refuse to feel and act defeated, scared and depressed. I will not stop doing what I love and since some French ladies in the nail community already expressed that they do not wish to see 'Pray for Paris' nails I will respect that and post something neutral I've prepared last week before I left England. So I will not further modify this post and will post it as it was originally intended.

 

Today's manicure combines different textures and I've created it a while ago. Unfortunately it took me ages to edit the video tutorial so I couldn't show you just yet! But good news is - it's done now and there is a tutorial!

 

I have been trialling different texture nail art manicures in the past few months and this lavender manicure is the first one. At the time I still wore rounded nails on my right hand so to precede your questions - no, I did not change my nail shape completely ;)

I really like this experiment and I can't wait to show you more of these manicures! Hope you've enjoyed the tutorial :)

Hello lovelies,

 

Today's post is about possibilities and the pearlescent cellophane that's rocking the nail world right now. The shattered glass look is very hot right now but have you thought about what else can be done with it? I've already tried half-moon manicure which worked well (coming soon).

 

Today I'll show you a different look where I've cut the cellophane into squares (or as close as I could get to a square shape) and then arranged it on the nails.

My head is buzzing with ideas about all the possibilities, shapes and sizes that can be done with the cellophane, this is just one of them! I have applied the cellophane squares over two coats of Models Own GlitterGel Starburst and then sealed them with two coats of topcoat.

 

You can buy different shades of the cellophane in Born Pretty Store which ships worldwide. You can also use my code LUHH10 for $10 off your order.

Starburst* is a charcoal black base with gold-green and blue sparkle. The formula was nice and not at all chunky like I would expect. It flowed nicely and application was so easy! I applied two coats which were fully opaque and quite glossy. I applied a coat of topcoat to get a lovely smooth finish.

The Models Own GlitterGel Starburst is a new colour and formula from the GlitterGel collection so I'll tell you a bit more about it. It contains five brand new sparkling glitter shades. All polishes have thicker and shiny HyperGel formula and the wide brush for easier application. They are described as party season collection so whether you'll wear them at Christmas party or New Year's, you'll be in!

 

The GlitterGel collection is out right now and available at www.modelsownit.com, in Bottleshops and in Superdrug.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
