NYFW: Blue Bursts (Inspired by Carolina Herrera design)

Hola! I'm continuing on with my New York Fashion Week Inspired nail art designs and this one was inspired by a long flowing gown from Carolina Herrera. Just looking at this photo I could see the movement in the gown and could picture it dancing on the runway. I admired the bright blue bursts of colour that just popped on the white fabric.


Get the look:
1. Apply your base coat and two coats of an opaque white like China Glaze White on White.
2. Using a very fine tip of a dotting tool or toothpick, apply a row of dot coming straight down the center of each nail. This would represent the buttons on the dress. Use a bright blue colour such as L.A.Girl Blueberry Fizz
3. Next apply bigger dots of blue onto the nail bed in random areas. Before the dots dry take a toothpick and lightly stroke the colour outwards creating spikes around the circles.
4. Apply a top coat to seal in your design!


And that's it! Hope you enjoyed, stay tuned for more fashion week inspired designs.

XOXO

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! 

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
