Nail Challenge Day 8: Metallic Antique Gold Nails

I'm learning so much from these nail challenges; like the fact that I love polka dots and don't have much metallic colours. Oh and by the way I love antique gold just like this colour from L.A.Girl. 



 In case you're wondering I distressed it a bit by adding touches of dark grey and true gold colours. The base antique gold looks like this.




I feel like it needed to look a bit more distressed so I will of course retry this again. What you do is start off with two coats of the Antique Gold. Next you take a grey colour, like L.A.Girl Disorder and wipe off as much polish from the brush as possible. Next apply in short strokes onto the antique gold so that it covers some portions of it. Repeat with a true gold colour. I used my favourite gold; Milani Gold Lame'.



Stay tuned for Day Nine: Rainbow 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 Metallic Nails!

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush. I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
