Hello lovelies,

Happy Easter if you're celebrating! I just wanted to let you know that there will be few changes in the next couple of weeks because I'm going on holiday so I won't be able to post as often. I have prepared lots of nail art and two new video tutorials so keep your eyes peeled ;)

Today I'd like to share with you a colour blocked ikat design that kind of reminds me of Easter eggs we used to do in primary school.

Hello lovelies,

 

I finally got to try nail stickers that make it incredibly easy to create zig-zag nail art. Some of you might call it chevron but I'm still undecided on what is the correct term :D Anyway - I have created 'Zig-Zag madness' manicure where I've combined zig zag pattern created with stickers but also one painted freehand.

I've used Stick Me Nails stickers that made the whole process very easy. I've intentionally spaced them out so the coloured parts would be wider but if you'd like the zig-zag pattern evenly spaced then you could apply a whole bit of stickers on the nail and then peel off every other stripe/sticker. However that seems to me like a bit of a waste so I didn't want to do that. They were pliable enough to bend around my nail and they aadhered nicely so i really have nothing to bad to say about them. A sheet 100 of these stickers is sold for $5 in Stick Me Nails Etsy store. Stick Me Nails are also on Instagram so follow them for all the news and offers!

 

I have also used two Renaissance Cosmetics polishes - Rosie Osie and Nightshade. They are both beautiful jelly-based polishes with shimmer and glitter in them and I have used just one coat in the pictures. Two coats would make the polishes darker and fully opaque. You can find Renaissance Cosmetics on Instagram and Facebook too and in case you didn't know, the creative soul behind this brand is talented Meghan aka Will Paint Nails For Food.

 

Hope you liked this manicure and will stop by tomorrow for more nails ;) Lucie x
