Guest Post from Lakeisha at ‘Refined & Polished’

Good afternoon readers! I have a lovely guest post today from a blogger I originally found out about via Facebook! Lakeisha has always had fantastic manicures and wowsa stunning nails! In addition, she always responds to her readers (whether on Facebook, twitter or IG) which is rare and special trait in the blogging world. Will you just look at this stunning color combination she came up with in this tape mani?!

Hi dolls! I am KayJay from Refined & Polished and it is my pleasure to guest post today for the readers of Luxe Beauty Forever. Bridget is one of the first nail bloggers I interacted with when I joined Instagram, so it is great to be here today. Bridget’s mani are always classic and chic, so I wanted to do something in line with her style. I started with two coats of Essie Armed & Ready, a gorgeous olive green with brown undertones that is filled with copper shimmer. The formula flowed easily and minimal clean up was needed. After Armed & Ready was dry, I created a simple striping design using striping tape and Zoya Ziv, which was inspired by this look.



I adore the way this turned out! Ziv compliments Armed & Ready perfectly. This look is fun, yet sophisticated because of the color combination. It was so fun trying to come up with something that I thought Bridget would like, so I hope I succeeded. Many thanks for allowing me to share my nails with you all!

Thank you so much Lakeisha for doing this amazing guest post! You can find Lakeisha’s stunning nails on Facebook here, via her blog ‘Refined & Polished’, twitter here, and her InstraGram name is @RefinedandPolished. Until next time…
