Lucy started her blog in February 2010 and is now ranks as one of the top UK nail bloggers. High quality photography, original nail art designs (often painted free hand!) and an ambitious posting schedule, (5-6 times a week!) all of which make her blog a stand out. Once you’ve dropped by the site, you’ll become addicted to Lucy’s Stash.
Today Lucy is sharing her nail art secrets with us!
Well I’ve been painting my nails since my early teens and it stuck with me till today. I see nails as a blank canvas and I can make it mine and original….and I looove nail polishes! Different colours and finishes, there’s always something new and exciting in the nail polish world! Lately it’s all the indie brands ;)
Nail care product you can’t live without?
I can’t pick just one so I’ll tell you my three favourite products – Barielle Nail Strengthening Cream, Lush Lemony Flutter and pure Almond oil.
The best nail care tip?
Use hand cream and cuticle oils/creams as often as you can! I like to put a generous amount of products on my hands just before I go to sleep. Don’t forget to put on beauty gloves so you don’t mess up your bed sheets ;)
