Delicate Nail Art

Ever saw an eye-catching design that you just couldn’t get out of your head? If you haven’t joined the Beautylish community, you should… now! This nail design was inspired by a beautylish babe called Tereska H. Check here for her design.
I took the concept of her design and used red and pink colours in mine instead of her original blue and white. My pink swirls are also a bit tighter and packer more into my nails than hers, but you get the idea! 


It’s really simple to do! Just paint your nails with a base coat; I used China Glaze’s strong adhesion base coat before adding two coats of China Glaze Ruby Pumps (deep classic red with sparkle). To make clean up of the lines easier, add your top coat as well.
 
Next all you will need is a Sally Hansen nail art pen in a contrasting colour. I used light pink. Just add random swirls onto your nails. The points of the pens are really precise but in case of any mistake you can wipe away quickly since you have your top coat down as a protective barrier. All done!
 
Hope you enjoyed this really simple manicure and be sure to check out the beautylish website for some more inspiring designs!
Happy Delicate Designing!
XOXO

    1. Now that I think about it, didn't I meet you on Beautylish? lol. Yes you should try it, really simple. Oh forget to say you don't want to use too much of this product, try to get the swirls in one go instead of going over them multiple times since the polish tend to crack if you use too much!

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.
