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

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

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
