Nail Challenge Day 21: Inspired by a Colour

I love being in the Caribbean with the bright colours everywhere all year round. For this challenge however I was inspired by the beautiful season of Fall that we don't really experience here. It just so happens that I got a few colours from the Orly Fired Up Fall 2012 collection and they did a tutorial on their facebook page that fueled this design.

So I first started by applying one coat of China Glaze Kalahari Kiss from the Safari collection. Next I apply random blob of a gold polish (Milani Gold Lame), cherry red (Orly Smolder), orange (China Glaze Cross Iron 360) and also the cream colour polish (China Glaze Kalahari Kiss). Next you just swirl the wet colours into each other using the tip of a dotting tool to create your swirls.




Stay tuned for Day 22: Inspired by a Song 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 Coloring!
XOXO

I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
