Hello lovelies,

 

It hasn't been that long since my piCture pOlish collaboration shade Dragonfly has been released and of course I had to try and do some dragonfly nail art with it. It didn't came out as I imagined but I still want to share it with you. I wanted to incorporate different mediums into this design so you'll see nail polish, rhinestones, foil and acrylic paint.

So yeah, that's my try of an alternative dragonfly :) I have used piCture pOlish Dragonfly as a base colour, nail foil glue and holo silver nail foil, black acrylic paint and Dance Legend polishes from the multichrome Chameleon range. I think I've used Knight, Boo and Wazowski. And lastly, I have used silver crystals that I got from Light In The Box - they are very sparkly and are a great value.

 

You can find a review & swatches of Dragonfly in the sun HERE.

 

You can purchase your bottle of piCture pOlish Dragonfly directly at www.picturepolish.com.au or at one of the international stockists: http://picturepolish.com.au/network. For the UK customers, the shops that will carry Dragonfly are Rainbow Connection and Sally Magpies.

 

If you already own Dragonfly, please share with me your manicures through #lucysstash I'd love to see them!

 

Have a great weekend ahead! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I haven't done purely matte & glossy nail art for a while so I simply must change that! Lovely people from Rimmel have sent me their Velvet Matte polishes so today I'll show you one of them. Velvet Matte collection has five shades in total.

 

Sumptuous Red is dark purple with a nice matte finish. The shade itself is very pretty although I really can't decide whether it's red or blue-based - what do you think? I applied two coats for perfect coverage and of course - no topcoat to keep that matte finish. It applied nicely but don't forget to let each coat dry properly to avoid patches.

I love the look of matte & glossy manicures so it was a no-brainer for me to do one. I opted for a dotted half moon style using only topcoat and dotting tool.

Very simple yet effective, isn't it? You can also do this by painting your nails with regular glossy finish, then use matte topcoat (Rimmel has one too) and then use topcoat and paint the dots. You will achieve almost or maybe even the same result.

 

The Rimmel Velvet Matte polishes are available at your local drugstore and supermarket that carries Rimmel products. In the UK they are for sure in Superdrug, Boots, Feelunique, Very.co.uk, Tesco, Asda and others.

 

Thank you for visiting and have a lovely day! Lucie x
