Hello lovelies,

Let's do something simple today! I've been playing with some Nicole by OPI polishes and I thought I would do the Floating French design again but with more similar colours so it looks subtle. The colours I chose are still bright and fun!

I have applied a coat of Nicole by OPI Leapink For Joy first and then I've painted the Floating French using The Coral Of The Story. I've used thin nail art brush with longer bristles to outline the shape and then filled it out with brush or nail polish brush.

 

Both shade, Leapink For Joy and The Coral Of The Story are part of the Seize The Summer collection that's out right now.

 

Here is a tutorial for this nail art style I've done earlier:

 

 


I like that this design is very simple to do and yet it can look chic and like from a catwalk. What do you think? Would you wear it?

 

Nicole by OPI polishes are available at various outlets in US, Superdrug (UK), Feelunique (UK), Nail Polish Direct (UK) and others.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I've recently bought Dance Legend AQUA genetic which is supposed to be a base coat for holographic polishes BUT I know that it can be used as topcoat over nail foils! So obviously I've had to try it straight away...

 

I went with a very simple abstract design where I've layered four nail foil colours over Models Own Gumballs.

I'm quite happy with the look, these abstract and colourful mixes look very cool and there isn't easier mani to do with foils than this one. The Dance Legend AQUA genetic (I bought mine at Rainbow Connection) worked brilliant as a topcoat. It didn't crinkle the foils nor did it stripped the colour. I am yet to try some other holo bases like FNUG and Picture Polish but I'm already over the moon that this one works perfectly! If you would like to see some nail foil tutorials, I've done one here and some here.
