Hello lovelies,

 

Don't you just wish the summer would last forever? Sunny days spent at the beach, warm sunsets and blooming flowers everywhere! That's just my dream and I can keep dreaming because I live in Britain after all... So at least I can create pretty flowers on my nails :)

 

I've decided to decorate Illamasqua Melange with vintage style roses. I have used Illamasqua Melange, OPI Red Hot Rio, OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Chic From Ears To Tail and Barry M Cardamom.

I'm also wearing a beautiful midi ring by Astrid & Miyu in the pictures. It's called Gold Crystal Floating Heart Midi Ring* and it is the perfect size to fit above my knuckles. Midi Rings are usually too big for me as I have slim fingers but this one fits nicely.

 

The ring is very delicate and feels like good quality product as opposed to some very cheap rings I bought before. The crystals fit perfectly, none of them are loose and this ring also comes in rose gold and silver colour.

 

It is made of gold plated brass and it's nickel free. If you would like to find out more and see some other Astrid & Miyu rings, visit their website.

You might have noticed that my pictures have changed a bit. Well I have a new camera which I'm currently testing so the pictures are mix from my new and old camera. I hope you like them and I hope you've enjoyed today's post.

 

Also, my dear friend Ruth has entered me into a birthday contest and I could win a pretty watch. The competition is on Facebook and as always with FB competitions, the most likes win. So if you would like to help me to get an awesome watch for my bday then please like comment from Ruth Knall in this picture: https://www.facebook.com/Watches2U/photos/a.234279439925292.65920.183000838386486/866629470023616/?type=1&comment_id=866639626689267&offset=0&total_comments=45  Thank you so much! xxx

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
