So Christmas is over, as in Christmas Day! But the festivities are still on as we head towards the New Year 2014! So let's start the celebrations with more nail art. Today's design takes on the idea of streamers and confetti that usually show up at such parties.
Snow is falling! Not here but somewhere around the world. Over here is sunny sunshine with a few scattered showers. I remember my first encounter with snow which was last year in Chicago. Just a few minutes of snow had me excited, jumping around and taking pictures to remember the moment. My nail art today is alot less cold and much easier for me to have fun in the snow.
Playing dress up whether it be on yourself, your home or your nails, is always fun! Today's nail art is simply a cute little Santa face for the accent nail accompanied by Christmas hats. It's very simple to do for yourself. Let me show you how :)
HO HO HO! Merry Christmas! Oh how I love this time of the year! And who doesn't like receiving present? I'm like a kid on Christmas morning :) Today I'll show you how to give yourself (or others) more Christmas presents via nail art!
Happy Hanukkah! Israel is a Holy Land. The symbolic colors of white and blue are noted in their flag along with the Star of David or Shield of David. The Jewish prayer book, Siddur uses the term Shield of David as a title of the God of Israel. Today's nail art is simple but incorporates these elements in the design!
It's always good to stop and remember all the things we are thankful for. I've been really blessed with a wonderful family, circles of friends, good job and amazing talents from God. While we do not celebrate Thanksgiving here in the Caribbean as a holiday, we can still have fun with their nail art, after all we still have turkeys. Gobble, gobble!
Falling leaves are everywhere! Well not in this part of the world but my family and friends living in colder regions have me envious of the colorful falling leaves and brightly colored trees in their recent pictures! So I thought why not recreate them on what else but my own little world of ten small nails.
Welcome back beautiful! It's so amazing that you are here to celebrate with me this achievement of obtaining two years in the world of blogging. It has been a tremendous experience along the way. I've made some new friends and strengthen my bonds with old ones. I've tried new products that have become staples in my daily makeup kit. I've found new blogs and shopping places where I can share my beauty finds with you. And how I've improved in my nail art techniques! Amazing!
Bling Baby! Today's nail style is simple and elegant, perfect for that Christmas cocktail party especially when you're in a rush! Applying rhinestones to cover an entire accent nail can be time consuming so that's where this blinged out baby comes in.
Today I'm putting aside my girly pinks and going a little edgy; made super easy by this gorgeous black lace piece from BornPrettyStore. My nail art to compliment this is simple using the typical black from Gothic looks, incorporating a touch of the lace pattern in the accent nail with just a touch of red to add a dash of romance.
Hello. My name is Bellezza Bee and I am a Coffee Addict! If there ever was a group for coffee rehab, then I would probably be in it. I love COFFEE! All kinds, brands and flavours. Lately I've even been interesting in coffee creamers and coffee mugs with my favorite being Maxwell House's French Vanilla! Yum Yum. Today's design is my tribute to my latest addiction.
How do you like your pumpkins? It's a favorite amongst my family and boyfriend so I recently started learning with my mom's help how to cook it. But today's "Pumpkin Patch" is certainly one I can cook up on the spot!
I love pink! Yes I'm a pink nail polish addict. Since I was a child, pink was my favourite colour and now my nieces seem to love pink also. So this simple manicure is dedicated to my love for all things pink and remains us again that in this month of October, pink is also symbolic of our support for Breast Cancer Awareness. So wear your pink manis proudly :)
Oh wow! I didn't realize how much I would love this color! This rich oxblood red from Orly is called Smolder and is from their fall 2012 collection. I've combine it simply with gold chevron tips for an elegant and fall inspired design.
Wow, another week has flown by so quickly and so I'm here again with week 2 of my Fall 2013 challenge hosted by Busy Girl Nails. Pink is my second favorite nail color next to purple and Orly La Vida Loca is such a classic color; a vibrant bright pink that is sure to brighten up your day.
I'm back safely on my home soil and had an amazing time on my vacation. Canada is such a huge land mass with endless possibilities for fun, shopping and relaxation. I recommend doing a Toronto city pass which allows you access to 5 major attractions; Toronto Zoo, CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum, Casa Loma and Ontario Science Center. Be sure to take your comfy walking shoes because your feet will need them! As for the beauty part of my vacation, well there was so much to see, so many new brands for me to experience and so many beauty destinations to explore. Join me as I share part of my amazing trip with you.
Sun! Yup I've got it! Almost 365 days a year for me has some sunshine; some days more than others. But for me I love it and enjoy it as much as I can; with sunscreen of course! And what could be more sunshine-like than a vibrant yellow nail polish such as Sunny Days from Rimmel London :)
I'm super excited to share with you a wonderful invention from EyeChi that is making its debut on the blog today. How would you feel about taking your nail art and its techniques and applying them on your eye wear? EyeChi makes this possible through their interchangeable EyeNailed It! Manicure'able slides for sunglasses which you can custom design just like your nail art.
Bright, bold, and beautiful! This is how I feel about anything neon and today's nail art look really stunned me, my family, my friends with how bold and eye dazzling this design turned out. These small yet neon bright studs from BornPrettyStore were enough to light up the room...I mean black polish...under UV lighting.
I continue to be inspired from the colours, prints and textures of the original designs seen on the catwalks of NYFW Spring 2014 collections. Today's nail art draws from a floral print by Peter Som. I love the contrast of the print with a solid color. Orange is a trendy color as of late and my latest design takes on a richer hue which complements my darker skintone.
I'm continuing on with my nail art inspired from NYFW Spring 2014 collections and today's muse is a beautiful print dress from Rebecca Minkoff's collection that flows as the model sashayed down the runway. This fun print is definitely a little number I would wear for a weekend date :)
Hello beautiful! Do you remember my last set of fashion week inspired nail art? Fashion remains one of my many sources of inspiration for nail art. I am always overwhelmed by the designs, colors and fabric. Today's design is inspired by Carmen Marc Valvo and the collection produced for New York Fashion Week Spring 2014. This piece is modern yet edgy with the complementary hair cut and style pulling the entire look together. Here is my take of this gorgeous dress represented in my nail art.
I'm happily making my way to using all the new brands of nail polish from my recent vacation haul in Canada. Today these two brands: Pure Ice and It's So Easy are making their blog debut in one manicure featuring neon stripes.
I'm enjoying my first Essie polish from The Twill of It Fall 2013 collection. This baby I picked up at Trade Secrets Canada while on vacation. I'm pairing it with some gorgeous dried flowers from BornPrettyStore for a simple yet artistic look.
Hello gorgeous! I'm back with my nail art after a long vacation. I feel renewed and inspired by my travels to Toronto so expect more nail art posts soon! Today is a simple, juicy design inspired by one of my favorite fruits, the watermelon!
Line and Define! Do you have a flair for the dramatic cat eye? Yes I do! Today's post gives you a step by step tutorial of how I complete a basic eyeliner routine and turn it up a notch into a dramatic, arabic inspired cat eye.
This Busy Girl is having a blast on her vacation but always makes time for her nails. It's week 8 of the Busy Girl Nails summer nail challenge as well as the last design for this challenge. It was indeed super fun. Watercolor nails are really easy and indeed a perfect DIY nail art. Here's my version with added bows for a 3D look.
Hello beautiful! Well it's week 7 of the Busy Girl Nails summer challenge and today I'm wearing my heart on my nails. I was inspired by a youtube video from the earlier days of Cutepolish; this is my recreation of her design :)
It's vacation time for me for the next 3 weeks and I always think of sun, sea and sand when it's my vacation. This year I will be heading away from that and instead crossing over the waters to Canada. So this fun, beach manicure will have to suffice this year while I go crazy shopping up the malls and taking in the beautiful landscape and sites in Toronto.
Hello beautiful! Today's post highlights some amazing nail art products from BornPrettyStore. As a nail enthusiast sometimes polish alone is just not enough. Here are some of my favorite products that make my nail art fun!
Do you like cupcakes or cake in general? Oh I have a big sweet tooth! I recently attended a bridal shower for my cousin and we had these super yummy cupcakes that my nieces and I made for this event. They were so fun to make and eat, and the sprinkles were so colorful that they inspired me to do this fun design. It is a really easy DIY nail art design.
Lippies galore today. I'm super excited to show you some new shades of lipsticks from Sacha Cosmetics and their Matte Me line. As far back as I can remember, I adored red lipstick and this seemed to be the color of choice for both my mom and grandmom! I've since branched out into loving more colours but always seem to go back to my reds, so it was awesome to find some gorgeous reds in this new line. Let's begin with this epic lipstick review!
Hello beautiful! I've always been a huge fan of the mix and match manicures although I find myself always going back to the standard look with an accent nail. Today's design is another challenge for the Busy Girl Nails summer challenge (Hashtag: #busygirlnails). Here's is my week 5 design for Mix Match.
Oh my goodness, this week has been super busy and so fitting of the Busy Girl Nails Summer challenge (Hashtag: #busygirlnails). For this week's challenge its all about the gradient, which is my most favorite nail art technique.
Hola chicas! This one is for all you girly girls out there who love to see the sparkles. Bling in everything. When I was younger I yearned for a be-dazzler to just add rhinestones to everything. Well needless to say I didn't get one but today I can get my bling on nevertheless with these gorgeous, bling-tastic items from Mont Bleu.
What goes best with the summer time than the neon brights of nail polish? Today's nail look incorporate bright bold colours that are perfect for the summer time at the beach or on vacation. Do you dare to be bold? :)
It's summertime beautiful! Well it's been very hot over here in the Caribbean and one of my favorite things to do is to watch the gorgeous colours of the sunset especially if I am in Tobago on vacation. I am always inspired by the rich, vibrant sunset colours and today's look translates this into makeup.
Somewhere over the rainbow! Way up high! Oh how I love rainbows! Today's design combines rainbows with dots with gradients in nail art for a simple yet stunning look for the summer time or just about any time you want a rainbow to brighten up your day :)
Hello beautiful! I'm back today with some glittery goodness in the form of another Busy Girl Summer nail challenge for this week. I'm calling mine Exploding glitter sky since this reminds me so much of fireworks with all burst of colors in the sky just using glitter instead.
