Crumpet's Nail Challenge & Day 1: Black and White

Hello beautiful! I am embarking on my second nail challenge with my lovely blogger friends DrinkCitra and Cosmetic Proof and a newbie to the group Lost in Lacquer. I thoroughly enjoyed my first challenge which pushed me to improve on my nail designs and techniques. Starting from today and posting every 2 days, we will be painting our nails with the guidance of Crumpet's nail challenge.


So let's get this party started with my day one design; black and white. I decided to do a very simple design with these two colours incorporating them into a border like nail technique just using dots instead of lines. The effect is quite stunning in its simplicity.



I've always loved border nails but couldn't get the straight lines perfect so this is a really neat idea to get the same effect. For the black base I used an opaque black polish from Nabi, simply called Black and the white dots were added using China Glaze White on White and a nail dotting tool. Easy!

Stay tuned for more nail challenge inspired nail art and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies.

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.
