Fashion Inspired: Blue Mesh Nail Art

Hello beautiful! Today's nail art design is inspired by a recent Maybelline design done for a recent fashion event. Instead of looking at their nail art I took my inspiration straight from the dress instead and gave it my own twist by changing up the colour scheme to work with my skintone.

My Nail Art inspiration came from Maybelline and this picture they posted on their facebook page. The original design was done backstage at Bibhu Mohapatra.

Now for my design!

Get the Look:
1. Apply your favourite base coat and then three coats of a sheer pink polish like China Glaze Hopeful.
2. Using a blue stripper brush (like LA Colours Art Deco in Sapphire) apply one line that curves in and out. You want the outside curves to be lined up with the centre of the nail.
3. Repeat step two but in the opposite direction so that the curves touch each other.
4. Continue adding more curves lines until you form your mesh pattern.
5. For a more mesh look, you can fill in a little of the spaces in between where your lines meet
6. Allow to dry fully and seal in your design with a top coat.


So how do you like my version? I was really thrilled with this blue and soft pink version. More fashion inspired nail art coming up!

XoXo

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. 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…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
