NYFW: Hand Laid Stones (Inspired by Libertine)

I've been really enjoying finding inspiration from the catwalk for my latest nail art designs. This one is very simple but the overall effect is quite stunning that I was left wondering how I didn't think of this one myself. If you are a DIY person then stick around to see how I did my version of this manicure seen during NYFW by Libertine.


Get the look:
1. Apply your base coat and two coats of a neutral polish such as China Glaze Kalahari Kiss or Classic Caramel. Allow to dry fully.
2. Using an assortment of sizes, shapes and colours for nail art gems, apply to the nail bed near the cuticle area and then down the side of the nail bed all the way to the tip. Use tiny amounts of clear polish to anchor your gems into position.
3. Seal and lock the gems in with a clear top coat.


Isn't this super simple? I used many colours for this design but you can also try sticking to a theme of colours or even one colour gems for yours. The possibilities are endless.



XoXo

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!
