Showing posts with label nail art

Hello lovelies,

 

I finally managed to edit my nail pictures from the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards Ceremony so I can finally show you. I wore black bodycon dress with white filigree print so I wanted to do matching nails.

 

I probably wouldn't be able to paint the pattern freehand on my other hand so I've decided to do stamping instead. I have used Cirque Memento Mori, Essence white stamping polish and MoYou London Tourist Colection 07 (XL) stamping plate.

The night was fun and I got lots of compliments on my nails so I was very happy they came out like that.

 

What do you think? Do you match your nails to your clothes?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

 

Hi everyone,

 

Today's post is dedicated to Emily aka Very Emily. She's going through a very tough time and various nail bloggers have decided to do this 'Hugs for Emily' post to show her support and recreate one of her manicures. When I found out about this I knew I wanted to join and send some positive energy Emily's way. I love her blog and manicures so choosing to recreate just one was really hard.

 

I'm recreating her entry into this year's Picture Polish Blog fest with few modifications. The design is a chevron manicure (zig-zag design?) using Nail Vinyls so that's what I've used as well...

For this design I have used Cirque Dear Dahlia and Midsummer Night from the Kontiki Collection (reviewed here), Nail Vinyls chevron stickers and Nsi Prims Paints acrylic paint in Little White Lies.

 

And here is a picture tutorial I've prepared for you:

This is how the design looked mid-step before painting the white nail art...

So that's all from me today. Please send happy thoughts to Emily or visit her blog and leave her some nice comment. Sometimes we all need a little emotional support and I love how the nail community can be a great support! If you would like to see more Hugs for Emily posts, search for #hugsforemily.

 

Have a good day! Lucie x
