Nail Challenge Day 19: Purple Galaxy

Enter my Purple Galaxy! I love using purples of any kind for a nail design and since I already did my first galaxy nails using blue as the base I thought it only appropriate to try purple instead for this one. 


Woot! Woot! So there are so many polishes I used to achieve this effect! Ok I'm exaggerating, just 5 polishes and some white acrylic paint. I first started off with two coats of China Glaze Smoke and Ashes which was from their Hunger Games collection. It's basically a really dark forest green with sparkle that comes off as almost black.


Next I sponged on a lilac colour called China Glaze Sweet Hook from their Electropop collection. Start sponging whereever you want but keep it small. Next around the edges of Sweet Hook I sponged on a darker purple colour called China Glaze Spontaneous. Repeat sponging around Spontaneous with a blue shade called China Glaze Frostbite. Complete the look with a thin coat of Sinful Colors I Miss you (a purple glitter) all over the nail followed by some small white acrylic dots and then lastly your favourite top coat.



 
Stay tuned for Day 20: Watermarbled 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 Purple Galaxy!

  5. I like how it looks with purple. It's a nice little twist, instead of the same old blue.

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. 

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.
