Hello lovelies,

 

I'm very excited to show you today's nails. I've loved them so much I kept constantly looking at them and I've worn them for days! Firstly, let's take a look at the nails before I tell you more :)

 

Lucy's Stash: Gradient nail foil manicure feat. Born Pretty Store nail foils
 

So now you've seen them....aren't they gorgeous? Like colourful beetles on my nails!

I have used Born Pretty Store nail foils #21 and #24. They are gradient and there's quite a lot of them in each jar. BPS sells many different types of nail foils so you don't have to restrict yourself to the gradient ones. If you'll be shopping you can use my 10% discount code LUHH10.

The pictures were taken the next day as the pictures in light box hardly pictured the beauty of them. Because of the delay there are light cracks that appeared overnight. There's no tutorial this time but I plan to do one next time I use gradient nail foils.

 

Just one more thing - don't use regular topcoat on nail foils otherwise they will crinkle. Use water-based topcoat if you can get your hands on one. I'm currently testing one but it is not on sale yet so can't tell you more I'm afraid.

Hello lovelies,

I've got here more of the gorgeous Shimmer polishes! I've you've missed previous reviews, check them out here.

Alessandra - red, orange, green, turquoise and silver glitter in a lightly tinted red jelly. This one is truly great for layering but could be worn alone but you would probably need three coats. I've applied Alessandra over white and as you can see, the tinted base changed the colour to light pink. it applied very easily and there's plenty of glitter in the bottle. One coat provided very good amount of glitter. It dried fast and slightly gritty.

Carol - blue, copper, gold, silver holo and black in clear base. I have applied one coat of Carol over OPI Hands Off My Kielbasa!. The glitter pay-off is again very good and I didn't have to position the bigger glitters. It applied well and dried fast, it has good formula.

Melissa - gold, blue, red glitter in a clear base. Here I have applied one coat of Melissa over Clinique Grape Ice and A England Camelot. The change of the base colour nicely shows off the different glitter colours. The formula is the same as the other shades - easy to apply, fast drying and with plenty of glitter. Melissa would be easy to wear alone as well as the glitter is dense.

Rochelle - red, gold and holo glitter in a clear base. This polish reminds me tanned skin and holiday :) I've applied one coat over OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours! The glitter is dense and applies well. iit dries quite smooth but I always use topcoat.

Jasmine - turquoise, blue and gold glitter in a clear base. Gorgeous mixture of colours, it looks great layered over so many colours! Here I've layered it over a white nail polish (OPI Alpine Snow). It applied very easily and dried fast.
