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.

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

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
