Hello lovelies,

 

I'm back from a short holiday break in Czech Republic so I've been very quiet this week. In the light of this week's horrific attacks I wasn't going to post any more nails BUT I refuse to feel and act defeated, scared and depressed. I will not stop doing what I love and since some French ladies in the nail community already expressed that they do not wish to see 'Pray for Paris' nails I will respect that and post something neutral I've prepared last week before I left England. So I will not further modify this post and will post it as it was originally intended.

 

Today's manicure combines different textures and I've created it a while ago. Unfortunately it took me ages to edit the video tutorial so I couldn't show you just yet! But good news is - it's done now and there is a tutorial!

 

I have been trialling different texture nail art manicures in the past few months and this lavender manicure is the first one. At the time I still wore rounded nails on my right hand so to precede your questions - no, I did not change my nail shape completely ;)

Hello lovelies,

 

Whilst I'm preparing some bigger post for you, I want to share with you this older nail art manicure I did on my rounded nails at the time.

 

I have been playing with SpaRitual Autumn polishes from the Pause collection, namely Artisan and Modern Craftsman. I've decided to create stamping decals and a chic geometric design.

I have applied two coats of Artisan and then I had to create the decals. I have stamped the geometric pattern on a stamper and filled some parts with small brush and Modern Craftsman. Then I topcoated the decal and once it was dry I peeled it off and applied to the wet nail. The gold polish I've used for stamping is Hit The Bottle To have and to Gold, the stamping plate Pueen 103 from the 24M - Make Your Day set and stamper and scraper from B. Loves Plates.

 

Where to buy:

Sparitual: SpaRitual UK / SpaRitual US

Hit The Bottle: US & Canada, UK, Australia

Pueen stamping set: Pueen US

B. Loves Plates products: B. Loves Plates website

 

This manicure is from about a month and a half ago when I freshly filed nails on one of my hands into round shape...so don't worry, I didn't change my nail shape completely ;) What do you think about the manicure?

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie
