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!

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!
