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!

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!
