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'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

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
