Showing posts with label shimmer

Hello lovelies,

 

Today's post is about possibilities and the pearlescent cellophane that's rocking the nail world right now. The shattered glass look is very hot right now but have you thought about what else can be done with it? I've already tried half-moon manicure which worked well (coming soon).

 

Today I'll show you a different look where I've cut the cellophane into squares (or as close as I could get to a square shape) and then arranged it on the nails.

My head is buzzing with ideas about all the possibilities, shapes and sizes that can be done with the cellophane, this is just one of them! I have applied the cellophane squares over two coats of Models Own GlitterGel Starburst and then sealed them with two coats of topcoat.

 

You can buy different shades of the cellophane in Born Pretty Store which ships worldwide. You can also use my code LUHH10 for $10 off your order.

Starburst* is a charcoal black base with gold-green and blue sparkle. The formula was nice and not at all chunky like I would expect. It flowed nicely and application was so easy! I applied two coats which were fully opaque and quite glossy. I applied a coat of topcoat to get a lovely smooth finish.

The Models Own GlitterGel Starburst is a new colour and formula from the GlitterGel collection so I'll tell you a bit more about it. It contains five brand new sparkling glitter shades. All polishes have thicker and shiny HyperGel formula and the wide brush for easier application. They are described as party season collection so whether you'll wear them at Christmas party or New Year's, you'll be in!

 

The GlitterGel collection is out right now and available at www.modelsownit.com, in Bottleshops and in Superdrug.

 

Have a lovely day! Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

The week of A England continues and today I want to show you Wuthering Heights!

 

About To Emily Bronte collection: 'The collection of 5 shades is dedicated to the author of the worldwide famous English gothic novel Wuthering Heights: translated in many languages, adapted in movies, theatres and TV series; and subject of famous poignant song by Kate Bush.'

 

Wuthering Heights is a 'soft medium grey holo wrapping multiple reflections the setting of the novel: a dark, windy, stormy place'.

Wuthering Heights - medium grey with purple undertones and fine holographic dust. Wuthering Heights is very flattering and beautiful especial for the A/W season. The holo particles are very subtle and only appear in direct sunlight. The formula of this polish was typical 'flawless A England'. The colour applied so beautifully and easily and it was almost fully opaque in first coat. I ended up applying two coats and topcoat. It's a stunning polish with exceptional formula so well done to A England!

 

To Emily Bronte collection is available at A England website or from one of the international distributors.

 

Hope you've enjoyed the post and have a lovely day! Lucie x
