Hello lovelies,

I finally finished editing my new nail art tutorial and I think you'll like it ;) I'm calling it Dreamy Mandala Nails because I've used soft and almost pastel-y colours and painted over them with mandala-like patterns.

On another note - it was my birthday yesterday! I've already had a pre-celebration with two of my girlfriends on Saturday where we went to a concert in London and had a great time! I also went lovely dinner with my husband so all in all, it was a lovely birthday. Next year, the BIG 30!

But back to nails - here's the finished look:

I instantly fell in love with these nails and wore them for 5 days. I don't know about you, but I could wear feminine and soft looks all the time. I do mix up the colours a lot but vampy colours or these soft looks are my favourites.

 

And here's the promised tutorial so you can recreate this look on yourself. The hand painted mandalas can be replaced by stamping, MoYou London has some pretty awesome mandala stamping plates.

 

 

 

I'm also wearing a Luna Pyxis 3 Lines adjustable midi ring I ordered a while ago :) It's a nice looking and fitting ring in silver colour and it costed $4.80

 

So what do you think? Will you try and do this design yourself? If so, I'd love to see it so tag me @lucysstash ♥

 

Have a lovely day and see you soon! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I was going through my folder with manicures and it occured to me that I have A LOT of manicures that I never got to share with you! There are swatches and nail art designs and I though it would be a shame if they never got to be seen. So here is the first lot of nail art looks that I never shared:

 

1. Ledlighting & Stamping Nail Art

I've used Dance Legend All Or Nothing for base and then black stamping polish, Pueen Lace Blossom stamping plate and Dance Legend Aquarelle polishes in Picasso, Dali, Rafael, Sisley.

Those were just 10 out of many nail art manicures that I never published. Sometimes I had too much content and not enough time to write and publish the blog post or I didn't like the final look for some reason. As you can see, some of these manicures are crappy and not so great but they are few years old and it's nice to track my own progress in nail art.

 

What do you think? Which nail art mani do you like best?

 

It's also that time of the year again when blog awards accept nominations. It would mean the world to me if you'd fill out a short form and nominated my blog lucysstash.com for Best Beauty Influencer category in the Cosmopolitan Influencer Awards! Thank you so much x

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x
