Nail Challenge Day 11: Splatterific

How about a Splatterific design? Splattering paint is therapeutic and definitely fun for me despite the messy clean up.


Some clean up tips: 
1. Rub vaseline on the skin surrounding the nail bed, this makes any polish splattered there easier to remove.
2. Seal off the surrounding nail area with tape.
3. Do one nail at a time and clean up after each spill, wet polish is much easier to remove. 
4. Wear gloves on the hand you are not working on. This will be the hand to do the splattering and will get nail polish on it too :)

Get the Look:
1. Apply your base coat and two coats of L.A.Girl Metal polish in Obsidian. This is a black base with subtle silver sparkle.
2. Prep your work area, I used an old shoe box to contain any splatter. Gather your design polishes, an old toothbrush and a painter's palette.
3. Place some of your first colour into the painter's palette, dip your toothbrush into the colour so that it is covered with the paint but not dripping.
4.  Using your thumb finger, move along the bristles to allow the paint to splatter onto the nail bed.
5. Repeat with all your design colours. I'm using China Glaze Hanging in the Balance (blue), Def Defying (yellow green), Sunshine Pop (yellow), Beauty Within (pink). The Purple was created using the blue and pink. 


6. Seal in your final look with a shiny top coat.

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.
