Simple Tribal Nails


Even though I’ve never been one to go with the flow, I seem to be following trends lately. Nail inspired by tribal prints are absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t help but try to do this for myself. Would you care to join me? Here are some pretty simple steps. Feel free to change up the colours. I have been in love with these two metallic shades.
Step one: Apply base coat if using a dark shade. I applied China Glaze’s Strong adhesion base coat followed by two coats of Orly’s Stone Cold. 
Step two: Using another color of your choice, apply a strip of that colour down the middle. I choose L.A. Girl metallic nail colour in Antique gold. Quick tip, make sure your base colour and this second strip colour are contrasting ones for that pop. At this point I wanted to stop since my two colours were stunning on their own! But let’s move forward. 
Step three: Draw black lines to the edges of where the two colours meet each other. Try the Sally Hansen nail art pen in black if you have shaky hands like me. 
Step four: Finish you design by drawing zig zag lines within the two black lines and add dots within each triangle. You’re done!
Wasn’t that super easy? I can see myself trying out more variations with different colours and lines. Following trends can be fun! Give it a try!
Happy Tribal Nails!

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
