Hello lovelies,

 

Today's glitter gradient is a bit different from the ones I've done previously because I've used loose glitter! Lovely Franziska from Fanzis has send me a set of 10 glitters to play with and this is the first manicure I've done with them.

 

Fanzis is a Danish brand by Franziska Christensen who is nail technician herself and uses these glitters for her work. She has 25 different glitters and Appeal4 nail polish line to offer. There is also a nail gallery and blog on her site so it's worth a visit.

 

Let's have a look at my manicure:

I have used Dance Legend Enamel Glass #1049 as a base and dark grey holographic Fanzis glitter. The glitters don't have names, only numbers on the website so I'm not so sure about the number for this one as it's not on the pot. As a last step I've sealed the glitter with a coat of Seche Vite. It didn't make the nails completely smooth but either two coats of topcoat or patting down and flattening the glitter more would help. Glitter can be difficult to work with but once I got hang of I it was much easier.

 

Fanzis glitter is regular size, it's not very fine nor chunky as you can see in the next picture.

Set of 10 glitters comes in this cute branded plastic box and you can choose any selection of colour you want just like I did. Many of them have holographic effect and all are beautifully sparkly and each pot holds 10 grams of glitter.

 

EDIT: I have done a 'Glitter Porn' video showing all 10 glitters up close!

 

 

Franziska has offered a 3-week temporary 15% discount on all glitters so you can just shop as usual, no need to use any code. The glitters & polishes are available in the Fanzis store.

 

I'm off tomorrow to The Body Shop HQ for some special project so there will be no post tomorrow. Don't forget to enter my current giveaway if you haven't already and have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I've taken few days off from blogging because there was extra work around wedding paperwork and you probably know how stressful, stubborn and stupid councils and governmental organisations can be! Hopefully all be sorted out soon :)

 

Today I want to show you brand new stamping plates that I got. They are called B. Loves Plates and they come from Poland. Creator Anna, who writes B for Beautiful Nails blog (www.b-for-beautiful-nails.com has created three different plates for start and asked me if I could share them with you.

 

I have B.01 - geometry is perfect and B.02 - flower power plates and cute rainbow-coloured scraper:

Each plate has 21 designs and the rainbow branded back and comes with the blue protective foil. The dimensions of the plates are 9,5cm x 14,5cm and the individual images measure 1.6cm x 2.0 cm. The images are nicely etched and all stamp well, so far I have tried with five different polishes and they all worked well. I also got a cute branded scraper and badge.

 

As I've mentioned earlier, I got two plates but Anna has designed three in total. The B.01 - geometry is perfect is full of geometric patterns, B.02 - flower power has beautiful floral images and the last one available is B.03 - mind blown which features optical illusion images. B. Loves Plates products are available in their Etsy store for £9.99/$15 per plate.

 

I've prepared a nail art for you using B. Loves Plates flower power plate:

For this manicure I have used Dance Legend no.1051 Enamel Glass as a base colour, B. loves plates B.02 flower power plate & Dance Legend Stylet from the Steel collection to stamp the floral pattern. Then I've used round glitter from Bundle Monster set to decorate three nails. The glitter wasn't bleeding colour and has a pretty pearl sheen to it. I also used gold caviar beads from Ebay.

 

That's all from me today, you all have a lovely day! Lucie
