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!

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! 

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
