Hello! Today I have my nail art look for May's 'Lost City' MeeBox to share. If you missed my intial unboxing and swatches, you can find that post here. When I think 'Lost City', the first thing I think is of tribal patterns, which goes perfectly with the House of Wonderland decals we recieved. I centered my mani on those, and came up with this look. Read on to see how I did it!
I started off with a base of Cuccio 'Pier Pressure'. As mentioned in my swatch post, this is a great nude on me, and being a neutral it is perfect for nail art. Below is three coats and topcoat.
I then had a play with the House of Wonderland MeeBox exclusive 'Lost City' decals. I cut out my desired sections, softened them in water for around 10 seconds, peeled them off the backing, and gently placed them onto my nails. These are fairly delicate so I would suggest being careful.
As a final touch, I then added some details using Annika (by The Edge Nails) 'Blue Lagoon'. I did mentioned in my swatch post that this stains slightly, but I had no issues when using it over a base colour. Using some (very fiddly!) striping tape, I added various stripes onto each nail.
What do you think? I wasn't sure on these at first, but they really grew on me! A lovely cashier at Tesco even stopped me to mention how much she liked them which I really appreciated. I also chose not to topcoat them in the end as I think the slightly rougher look fit the theme.
