Hello lovelies,

I've realised that I haven't posted a single video tutorial last month! Let me make it up to you ;)

Today's nail art is a gradient I stamped over so it's nothing too complicated but I get asked for tutorials for simpler manicures so I did this one.

I have used OPI You’re So Vain-illa and Sorry I’m Fizzy Today for the gradient base. Then MoYou London PRO collection 14 XL and MoYou Nails black special nail polish for the stamping. My stamper is a soft silicone stamper from Winstonia Store.

 

I'm sure you've spotted that there are two different products with MoYou in them - they are two separate companies so don't confuse them. MoYou London has rectangular stamping plates, MoYou Nails has circular plates.

 

 

 

 

Simples, right? I hope you've enjoyed the tutorial and don't forget to let me know your thoughts in the comment. I'm wondering if I should skip showing products used and just list them in the description - what do you think about that?

 

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day! Lucie x

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
