Nail Challenge Day 1: Red T&T Flag Nails

And were off! Day One of the Nail Challenge begins with red nails and how appropriate for me at this time since Trinidad and Tobago celebrated its 50th Independence Day just yesterday! My version of red nails is symbolic of the colours and pattern of the national flag.



It's really simple to achieve too! I used my favourite red polish, China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I can't tell you how many times I've used this colour before. It's really the best red I've found to date. 


You just need two coats of this red. Allow to dry properly and then bring out your dotting tool. Apply two rows of white dots that sandwiches a row of black dots. This is the symbolism of the national flag but with a twist in that it is not in straight lines but semicircles. 





I loved these so much I even entered them into a local nail art competition being put on by Wonderful World which is where I get most of my polishes anyway! 

Stay tuned for Day two: Orange Nails and be sure to stop by Jayne's blog Cosmetic Proof and Traci's blog DrinkCitra to see what gorgeous designs they also created for this challenge! 


Happy Red Nails!
XOXO

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.
