Flower Fields


So did you like my tribal nails? Or maybe you preferred my pink pastel ones?  Well if not give me another chance with my flower fields nails. Inspired by my nieces again! At only 8 years old, Abi is very creative and she constantly wants to do more designs with me on the weekend. We bond over these things. Did I mention she loves pink? A girl after my own heart! She insisted my next nail design had to have pink and since I have been into plants lately, well here’s what we did. 
It’s a very simple design and if you want to try it, stay tuned!

Step 1: Use a sheer blue colour as your base coat. This represents the soft sky. I used Sinful Colors Swedish Blue. You can also use a more opaque sky blue. 
Step 2: Use a dark green stripper polish to paint in your grassy fields. Simple freehand strokes will do find. No need to be perfect but alternate the strips in direction and height for a more natural grassy field. 
Step 3: Using a nail dotter and an opaque pink polish like OPI’s Pink Friday, make dots to random ends of the grass.  
Step 4: Using the dotting tool make 4 or 5 dots around the initial dot to form your flowers. You don’t have to make many flowers. Leave some as just one dot to represent buds. Add a sheer white in the middle of your flowers just for some definition. Add your favourite top coat (Seche Vite for me) and we’re all done! 
Happy Flower Fields!
XOXO

  6. WOW. They look amazing! I just don't have a steady enough hand to do nail art like this. I never have quite been the most artistic one either, I'm much better at admiring from afar! ;-)

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!

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
