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.

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
