Hello dear followers and happy Monday! I generally don't hate Monday's, I just find them tiring. There are only 2 weeks of Summer left for my kids so I will probably be gathering up school supplies, a few new outfits and any other necessities that the kids might need for their first day back. I can't believe how fast the Summer has gone by! One thing that I do enjoy is the transition from Summer to Fall. My post today, featuring nail decorations from Lady Queen, shows 2 looks - one Summery and the other has an Autumn feel. This is my first time receiving items from Lady Queen. The selection in the online shop is very extensive - nail art, plates, decals, makeup and tools, accessories, hair, etc... I will let you know that shipping is international and isn't the speediest. So if you see something you want, and know you want it for a future occasion please order with plenty of time for it to arrive. The shop will let you know that it take 3-5 weeks for items to arrive. I also have a 15% off code of you to use, GCLC15. Now let's jump into this post!
This is the 5mm Multi Colored 3D Star Studs. I loved the neon colors and haven't seen anyone do nail art with this shape of studs before. I started with a simple neon pink and purple gradient. I then added stars to the middle where the colors blended, where the 2 colors meet. There are 6 colors in the wheel and plenty of stars to do several manis. The stars are a bit larger so you probably couldn't fit more than 4 or 5 on your nail, depending on your length. I was surprised that with their size the stars laid fairly flat, only my pinky had any edges sticking up. I applied a layer of topcoat to my gradient and then stuck the stars on with tweezers. They held on great and none popped off.
I also had the 5mm 3D Metallic Roses to try out. When I opened these I thought "WHOA these are HUGE!" And they are! They are very 3D and stick off your nails quite a bit but they look so pretty on my nails! I think that they would bother me for daily wear, but for a special occasion or just a night out they are fantastic! So this wheel came with 12 different matte-metallic shades of roses and the colors are great for any season. I went for a Fall look and picked some jewel tone roses. I used a shimmery/sparkly deep blue polish with an soft-shimmery nude accent nail. I applied the roses much like I did the neon stars. I put a layer of topcoat on my nails, then using tweezers I applied the roses to precisely where I wanted them. I would suggest nail glue if you plan to wear the roses for more than an hour or two because I don't think the topcoat will keep them on for long. These are nail decorations that will be easy to remove and re-use too.
