Creative Fantasy Dotticure

I have a strong love for purples! While the base colour China Glaze Creative Fantasy gave me application problems, there was no way I was wasting these 4 coats of this gorgeous rich purple crème colour.


To get the look, these were all the polishes used.


Tutorial:
Step 1: Start off with a base coat like Jordana Calcium Boost Basecoat. This is my current favourite which feels like a gel on your nails, give you well a calcium boost to strength weak nails and protects your nails from staining with the dark purple base colour.

Step 2: Apply 4 coats of China Glaze Creative Fantasy. This was the amount of coats I used to get the opacity and smoothen the base colour layer but go ahead and experiment with your own number of coats desired.


Step 3: Start off with a large dotting tool and a blue purple colour called China Glaze Bizarre Blurple. Apply large dots to the end of the nail tip.

Step 4: Use another purple colour but one lighter than your Blurple and apply some more large dots but just a little bit higher up the nail bed. I used China Glaze Spontanous.

Step 5:  Continue the gradient of dots now but add large and medium sized dots and a lighter polish. I used Sally Hansen Greige Gardens.

Step 6: Complete the gradient of dots with a small dotting tool and your lightest lilac colour. I used China Glaze Sweet Hook.

Step 7: Seal in your design with your favourite top coat.




Happy Purple Dotting!

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
