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!

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!
