Tie Dye Surprise Nails

Carnival is colour! It's heading closer to Carnival time here in Trinidad and Tobago so for me it's time to embrace its colour. While I am not a party goer, I appreciate the colours, costumes and creativity of our people at this time. These nails would be great to complement a colourful costume and are easy to do for yourself.


What you would need: Metallic nail transfer in any pattern of your choice, I'm using TieDye Surprise. Applicator, glue and top coat.  



First you would need to cut a length of your nail transfer into sizes to fit over your nail bed. This is the beauty of the nail transfer as oppose to precut strips. Here you can decide on the colours you want for each nail.
Next, apply the glue over each nail and allow to full dry. You should apply a base coat before applying the glue. The glue looks icy blue when wet and turns clear when fully dry.
Try to avoid touching the glue coat for maximum hold of your nail transfer. Simple press gently the cut strip over the nail bed and use the applicator to smoothen all over the nail to ensure all the pattern transfers to the nail bed. Lift off the plastic to reveal your lovely and easy manicure.
Here's my mom nails. She is my guinea pig for all my recent nail designs and adventures :)

 
And now my nails :D
Quick tip: If you miss a few spots, just do it again or apply a base colour underneath the glue so it appears like no spots are missing.
 
 

It's quick and easy. These nail transfers are available at Ambrosia Cosmetics and are found in other solid colours and patterns. Until my next colour manicure! See you soon!


Happy Tie Dye Surprises!

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.
