Picture Polish - Douceur // Geometric Nail Art

Hi everyone! On the blog today, we have a collaboration shade from Picture Polish called Douceur. Douceur was created in 2013 with Ophelie also known as Tartofraises. She's a French blogger, YouTuber and published author - she's amazing! I've been a subscriber to her channel for years now, and I'm so fascinated by her extremely advanced one-stroke techniques! She also does beginner's nail art tutorials :)

The inspiration for this beautiful nail polish came from Ophelie's love of all things sweet and jelly. Douceur means sweetness in French! It's a muted light pink jelly with 2 sizes of hex glitter in magenta and mulberry. It's enriched with the signature Picture Polish scatter-holo, and dries slightly textured on the nail. When you apply top coat, it'll even out the surface and be super to smooth to the touch. For this mani I used 2 coats of polish, and it covered my nails completely! I truly adore this cute, sweet and really delicious-looking thing! To me it kind of resembles yummy ice cream ;) Buying info below the photos :)

    1. It really is! And besides just being perfect for all year round wear, I find it's extraordinarily fitting for Spring :)

  2. Hvordan har du lavet de tykke striber? Striping tape eller almindelig tape eller hur?

    1. Hihihi sorry! <333 Jeg glemte at svare dig, fordi jeg startede at researche tyk striping tape :)

      Fandt ud af at Born Pretty Store har noget de kalder 'fancy striping tape', som fåes i 2 størrelser: http://www.bornprettystore.com/fancy-white-stripe-tape-roll-nail-edge-guide-tips-stickers-12cm-width-p-6617.html

      Jeg har en rabatkode du kan bruge, hvis du vil, så du får 10% af prisen: LSJ61

      Hvis du er lidt ligeglad med om striberne bliver helt lige, kan du bare gøre som mig ;)

      Jeg brugte almindelig tape, bare klippet i tyndere striber, placerede dem strategisk og malede over dem med hvid lak - så fjernede jeg bare tapen med pincet med det samme, og voila :)

      Håber det kunne hjælpe :)

    1. Hi dear :) I’d love to do a tutorial at some point, but right now I can just give you a quick description of what I did :)

      I already wore a cute glitter polish, fully dry. After cutting regular scotch tape into more narrow strips, I placed them in the desired pattern of my choice. Then I painted on top of them with white polish, and immediately after, I removed the pieces of tape with a tweezer :) Then I finished off with a thick top coat and yeah, that’s it :)

      If you’re worried about cutting perfect strips of tape, you can actually get wide striping tape at Born Pretty Store :) 

      It comes in two sizes: http://www.bornprettystore.com/fancy-white-stripe-tape-roll-nail-edge-guide-tips-stickers-12cm-width-p-6617.html#sthash.2PLl7abv.dpuf

      Actually I have a discount code you can use - if you want :) This will give you 10% off: LSJ61

      I hope it helps :)
