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!

What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush. I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
