NYFW: Graffiti Nails (Inspired by CND/ Creatures of the Wind)

Hello beautiful! I'm continuing on with the latest nail trends and fashion inspired nail art from New York Fashion Week 2013. I was really amazing by this simple yet stunning and artistic nail art design developed by CND for the Creatures of the Wind fall 2013 collection.

This CND designed manicure was inspired by urban art from the 80's. It's like graffiti nails. It's really simple to do for yourself. Here's how I created mine.



Get the look:
1. Start off with a base coat and a neutral base colour like NYX Cosmetics The Taupe. I used two coats for an opaque finish.
2. Choose complimentary colours for your graffiti. You want pops of colour. For precise lines, use either stripper brushes or nail art pens to create zig zag lines to the nail. Stick to the left side of the nail bed.
The lines should be in different colours and should overlap for more depth of the design. I used Sally Hansen nail art pen in Blue and Black, L.A.Colors Art Deco in Sapphire and Red.
3. Allow to dry properly and then seal in your design with a top coat!



 
Hope you enjoyed!
Happy Graffiti!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
