Nail Challenge Day 12: Side Stripes

Stripes! At one point I had a mean fear for these. I mean just the thought of doing them would make my hands super shaky and the stripes would always come out croaked. If you have those issues, then the nail art polishes with the stripper brushes may just come to your rescue.


I started off with a black base colour using Nabi Cosmetics Black. This seems to be my favourite black polish lately since its really thick and opaque in one coat. Next I just alternated 3 colours in a side stripe to create this candy like design. I used Jordana Pop Art in Golden Artist, Kiss Brush on nail art in White and L.A.Colors Art Deco in Rose. They all are stripper brushes but I do prefer the brush from the Jordana pop art the most. 



Stay tuned for Day 13: Animal Print 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 Striping!
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!
