ABC Challenge: C is for Colourful China Glaze Crackle Nails

What another challenge? I must be nuts or just a huge nail polish addict right? I'll take the latter please! I thought this was a brilliant challenge and didn't want to miss out on this one so here I am taking part in the ABC challenge. For more information on this challenge please visit the Llama Nails on Facebook. This week the letter is C. My C stands for Colourful, China Glaze, Crackle Nails with a tutorial in case you're interested to create this design for yourself. 



Here's a look at all the China Glaze polishes used to create this design.


So first you want to start off with the Strong adhesion base coat to prevent the nails from staining and then one opaque coat of Liquid Leather.


Next you want to add Platinum Pieces, a silver crackle to parts of the black base coat like this. 


Now repeat using another colour: Glam-More, a fuchsia pink crackle.


You see a pattern here right? Repeat with another colour. Here is Oxidised Aqua crackle.


And now for my final colour to complete any open black space: add a purple crackle called Fault Line.


Clean up any mistakes and add your Fast Forward top coat to bring on the shine! 



Now feel free to express yourself in terms of how many colours used and how big your patches of crackle colour used. I would love for you to head on over to Gorgeois to see her gorgeous Shatter Mosaic which is where I got this idea from.

 
Happy C- Challenge!
XOXO

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!
