Hello lovelies,

 

Italian brand KIKO has released a new collection called Daring Game and the collection also includes six nail polishes. The nail polishes are called 'Poker Nail Lacquer' and each has a square white lid with dice-style dots on the top. The collection itself is inspired by 'the smart, quick-witted and beautiful Bond Girls'.

 

Today's nail art features three KIKO shades and I've decided to do gradient stripe design...

I have used three shades from the Daring Game collection - 01 Prestigious Taupe, 02 Irresistible Orchid and 04 Intuition Wine. Unfortunately KIKO doesn't name their polishes on the bottles, they only have numbers. I found these names on their website.

 

I've painted the stripes with striper and long detailing brush so they are not all perfect. It also took ages to finish so I don't think I'll be doing this anytime soon again!

"The exciting game of seduction begins. Luxurious and sophisticated atmospheres reflect the style of those who have the courage to gamble on their own beauty: an elegant queen of hearts who is sure of herself. The colours are vivid and full-bodied, the trump card for bold make-up. Light and shadow alternate to enhance the features, correct shapes and give maximum emphasis to femininity and character."

 

KIKO Daring Game collection is available online at www.kikocosmetics.com and in KIKO stores since mid-August 2014.

 

So what do you think? Would you wear this stripy gradient nail art? Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I think it's time for some nail art ;) This time I was inspired by Marta from Chit Chat Nails and her glitter placement & stamping manicures. I purchased a lace stamping plate from MoYou London from their Bridal collection and I had to try it straight away!

I have used two coats of OPI Sorry I’m Fizzy Today, MoYou London Bridal collection, plate 07, white stamping polish and pearl hex glittter.

 

The stamping didn't stamp properly on my thumb but the rest looks quite nice I think. I am yet to try some stamper priming but I couldn't be bothered tbh. I'm also becoming a fan of using glitters instead of classic dots, it looks quite cool!

 

What do you think? Lucie x
