Back to Nature: A Polish Days Challenge

Hello beautiful! I'm a huge sucker for the outdoors, the bright sunshine and blue skies with the gorgeous tropical flowers all around me. For today's post I got inspiration from some beautiful roses in my garden and also incorporated one of the Avant Garden China Glaze collection colours for a double taste of garden beauty.



The base colour is called Fade into Hue, a periwinkle colour from the Avant Garden collection. The formula was a bit thicker than usual but the same two coats was enough to give the desired opacity.


The actual design used acrylic paints to create the green stems and leaves and pink flowers. Acrylic paints are a bit easy to work with than regular polish.




And here are the beautiful roses that inspired this design. Small and cute! Now head on down to see the other Nature inspired posts in today's Polish Days Challenge!

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

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
