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!
XOXO

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

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.
