Igniting Love for Valentine's Day

Hello Bellezza! Let's get the flames of love ignited and ready to go in time for Valentine's Day! Get this Hot Red Beauty with China Glaze's Igniting Love from their Cirque Du Soleil collection.


To get this simple and sweet Valentine's Day nail art, start off with a base coat to protect the natural nail from staining. Dark colours and reds have the tendency to stain the nails. Add two coats of your gorgeous orange based red crème colour to set the tone for your nail design.


The rest of this simple nail art design uses just two more colours; pink (Surreal Appeal; also from the Cirque Du Soleil collection) and a deeper red (Ruby Pumps). Both are colours associated with romance <3


The Hearts are all made using a dotting tool, you simply connect the dots in a heart shape form. You may sketch the outline first and then dot over the line but I did mine freehanded since I rather a more imperfect heart. The pink hearts and additional pink dots were created using China Glaze Surreal Appeal. Now just add a touch of red glitter by adding China Glaze's Ruby Pumps. Seal in your design with your favourite top coat and you're all done!


Happy Valentine'sDay!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

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…
