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!

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.
