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

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!
