Hello lovelies,

 

Another month has passed since the last Paint All The Nails nail art challenge (we did animal print nails) and this month's new theme is NEONS! I was trying to get into the festival mood (two festivals ahead of me - yay!) and the current Models Own Soft Pop collection was perfect for it. I opted for a subtle neon gradient and bold stamping. Let's have a look..

I started with two coats of Models Own Cosy Posy, a soft neon green. Then I've used a makeup sponge and sponged Lemon Popsicle on the tips to create a gradient. Once that was done and dry, I've decided to stamp some bright design over it. I reached for the Bundle Monster Festival plates BM-S304 and BM-S305 and Bundle Monster Electric Pink stamping polish. All three colours nicely contrasted and the result was this bright and playful festival mani!

 

And since they colours are neon they glow beautifully under UV light!

So what do you think? Too crazy to wear or a manicure worthy of a nail blogger? ;) I quite liked it even though I felt a bit juvenile :D

 

I will be going on holiday soon so I'm preparing a guest post line up for you, you can look forward to some cool nail art manis from my fellow nail bloggers. Stay tuned and have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

Sorry for not being more active here, I'm currently preparing for holidays and work is very busy as well! At least I'm sticking I'm sticking to the ABC Challenge for now. I will have some very cool guest posts from other nail bloggers to show you during August so stay tuned ;)

This week's letter for the ABC Challenge is 'L' so I have painted lilies on my nails! It was a very laborious and time-consuming task but I absolutely love the result! I probably should have just stick to one or two nails to save some time (well, hours..) but what's done is done! Let's check out my lilies...

I went for those beautiful oriental lilies with pink colour and 'freckles'. In real life I'm not a huge fan of lilies because they stink to me and give me a bad hayfever but otherwise I admire those beautiful blooms. And having them on my nails is safe :)

 

I started with painted nails - I already had two coats of A England Kalinka on and I did a dry brush technique over it with A England Polovetsian Dances and Waltz Of The Flowers. Both polishes are from the latest A England Russian Soul collection. Then I painted the lilies from scratch with acrylic paints. Lastly, I've sealed the nail art with Sienna Byron Bay Lightning Top Coat.

 

So what do YOU think of this nail art and my hand painted lilies? :) Don't forget to check out manicures from other challenge participants and have a great weekend everyone! Lucie x
