Hello lovelies,

 

How are you all today? I'm struggling a bit with being inspired and with writing new posts but otherwise I'm good. I blame all the pre-wedding stress with planning and the pressure of it all! Any advice?

 

Sooo... today's manicure is one of my older ones I did a while ago and never managed to publish it. I was playing with the Zoya matte polishes and took a partial inspiration from dotted aboriginal art...

I have used Zoya Harlow, Savita, Dovima and Purity for this manicure. I've decided not to keep the matte finish and I topcoated the nails with Seche Vite to get nice and smooth finish instead. Also these polishes have a subtle shimmer that looks very nice with glossy topcoat. All painted freehand with a small nail art brush and dotting tool.

 

What do you think of this manicure?

 

Have a lovely day everyone! Lucie x

 

Hello lovelies,

 

When I was swatching A England The Blessed Damozel (reviewed here) I couldn't just leave it alone so I've created a stamped nail art over it. Silver seemed a perfect match and A England Excalibur stamps beautifully. I have used a baroque-like pattern from Uber Chic 1-03 plate to stamp the design. Then I've layered one coat of Merlin over The Blessed Damozel on the rest of the nails.

 

Frosted! with A England The Blessed Damozel, Excalibur & Merlin

I think that the photos came out beautifully and I love how good the purple looks with metallic silver. It was incredibly hard to narrow it down to the photos you've just seen, I started with a shortlist of approximately 20 photos! What do you think?

 

You can purchase all A England polishes featured directly at A England website or from one of the international distributors.

 

Hope you've enjoyed the post and I hope to see you soon! Lucie x
