Solar Flare Christmas Nails

Hello Bellezza! It's the holiday season and this is usually the busiest time of the year for me. So here is a simple but beautiful nail art design to get you out the door with some Christmas charm and bling on your nails.




Here are the steps I took to get this beautiful Christmas design.
1. Apply your favourite base coat to prevent staining from the red colour.
2. Apply two coats of NYC Broadway Burgundy Frost or any Christmas red of your choice. Allow to dry fully.
3. Using a sponge start from the tip of the nail and work your way about halfway up the nail bed sponging on a medium gold colour. I used Milani Gold Lame'.
4. On top of the medium gold, sponge on a sparkly, glitter gold such as Jordana Pop Art in Golden Artist.
5. Finish off the very tips with some chucky glitter polish. I used China Glaze Solar Flare.
6. Seal off your design and add some shine with a fast drying top coat. I used Sally Hansen Clear'd for Takeoff.



Happy Solar Flare!

XOXO

  2. Every time I try to sponge on polish it looks really messed up. Is there another way I could get the gradient?

    1. You can try using loose glitter or pigments instead of polish and apply over wet base coat polish using a nail art fan brush

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.
