Hello lovelies,

 

I'm so so happy that I can welcome Lindsey from Wondrously Polished here at Lucy's Stash! I absolutely love her creative designs and especially her floral print manis. Today's design is another stunner and Lindsey's blog definitely deserves a visit!

 

Hello, all! I'm Lindsey from Wondrously Polished and I'm incredibly honored and excited to get to guest post for the lovely and talented Lucie today! I know we're all missing her manis since she's on holiday, but hopefully you won't mind my stopping by and sharing a look in her stead :)

My mani today was a bit of a no brainer as I knew I wanted to paint a floral design. I love painting vintage inspired looks with a funky yet modern twist, so I knew I wanted to create something that incorporated those element. Floral print has come a long way since your mom's ugly sofa and I enjoy using updated color schemes to give new life to vintage inspired patterns.

For today's look, I stumbled upon a fantastic fabric print created by Elizabeth Olwen and knew I wanted to give it a shot almost immediately. I think her print is very indicative of the style of nail art I typically like to create so it felt very fitting for today's guest post.

For this look, I started with a base of OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls (aka, the best off-white around!) and used a teeny tiny trimmed detail brush to add the floral print. For any curious minds out there, the blue and orange are American Apparel's Mount Royal and Palm Springs, the teal is Essie's Ruffles & Feathers and the tan is an acrylic paint. I just love these shades together!

 

 

 

Thank you all so much for taking time to check out my post, and thanks again to Lucie for the opportunity! Feel free to check out my Facebook and Instagram pages to follow along with all my manis! Hope you all enjoyed this look and I'd love to hear what you think of it!

 

Happy Polishing :)

Have a nice day! Lucie x

 

Hello lovelies,

While I'm on holiday I've asked some of my favourite bloggers to guest post for me. Today I have here THE one and only Sammy aka The Nailasaurus! I don't think I have to introduce her, we all know her cute nubbins and great nail art! I've had the pleasure of meeting Sammy in person last year at the Cosmopolitan blog awards and she is as lovely as her blogging personality :) Let's have a look what she's prepared for us:

Hello Lucy’s Stash readers! For my guest post today, I wanted to create some nail art with two of my favourite elements – gradients and stamping – with a summery theme. I decided on a simple sugary gradient with a light sprinkling of stamping and I think the matte effect (which I added after, on a whim) makes it look even sweeter!

 

For the gradient, I painted on a base of pastel yellow which I got in-store at Tiger. I created the gradient by adding Nicole by OPI LeaPink for Joy in to the mix. There’s a tutorial for gradient nail art here.

 

The stamping is all from MoYou Plate Mother Nature 02 and I stamped using BK Matte White polish.

 

It’s all topped off with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl, then one coat of Rimmel Matte Finish.

Oh, I love Sammy's manicures so much! She always takes something simple but makes it look so awesome! Thank you so much Sammy for guest posting for me and I hope all of you have enjoyed it too :)
