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. 



You basically just need an opaque black polish; here I'm using Nabi Cosmetics Black which has a really thick formula and is opaque in one coat. Next you sponge on a bright blue colour from the tips to halfway up the nail bed to form your gradient.



Stay tuned for Day 11: Polks Dot 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 Gradient Nails!
XOXO

  4. I am totally in love with this look! You use a small sponge to get the blue part on??? I have got to try this--I paint my nails every week---I'm a nail polish junkie. Just ordered from Avon a black nail polish that when it's still wet, you dip the tips in a little pot of silver glitter, let it dry then put on one layer clear top coat. Can't wait to try it out!!

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.
