Guest Post from Francesco of IG @cesco1978

So, I found out about another guy with amazing nails via IG just a couple of days ago and HAD to feature him. His IG name is @cesco1978, you should check him out! Since Francesco doesn’t have a blog I know it’s not typical to feature a guest post but I really love his style so get ready for some stunning examples of his work!

Hello to all the Luxebeautyforever followers,

I’m really flattered to be the Bridget’s host today. My name is Francesco and I’m from Tuscany,Italy. I discovered my passion for nail polish and all things nail-art related about 1 1/2 years ago and since then my passion and dedication has been growing and growing a lot and now it has become one of the most important interests for me. I simply love it and it’s so much fun! I’ve always put lots of effort in my body care and even my hands deserve the same treatment. I’ve been taking care of my hands all by myself so far and I had a manicure at a saloon only once but it was a super wonderful experience and men who say that would never go to take a manicure…well they just don’t know on earth what they are missing…….I’ve been asked but i don’t have a personal blog like the guys who have been featured here before me; I can be found on instagram under the name ” cesco1978 ” and have also accounts of Facebook and Flickr where i started to share my new love. Now I’m sure y’all agree that Italy is a wonderful country for many reasons….but….it’s definitely not the case when it comes to nail polish! All our favorite brands are either American or Brazilian…but lately the situation’s improved a bit and I’m thrilled to say that one of our national brands ” Layla ” came out with one of the most amazing Holographic collections of the last years and here i present you some polishes of my ” Layla ” collection : Gold Idol, Flash Black and Ultra Violet.

These are all 3 coaters without any top coat and the application was super easy. These were my very first holo polishes and I remember as I was applyin’ them i was just in Awe!!!  I’ve been practicing also some simple nail art and here I’d like to show these two that came out pretty nice : first one is my Rainbow Crackle mani…a sort of mixed patch as a base layered with Opi black crackle polish and the second is my most recent manicure, a simple but pretty gradient made with two colours that blended nicely, a beautiful orange from Zoya called ” Paz “with Opi ” Ate Berries in the Canaries “.

I hope you like them and I’d like to thank again Bridget for having me here today. Ciao!!!!!!!

These mani’s are so awesome! I’m glad I found another guy (and from a different country no less) that paints his nails and does it so well. Make sure you follow @cesco1978 on InstaGram! This (for real this time) concludes ‘Guys Takeover Week’. Until next time…
