Nail Challenge Day 15: Watercolor Wallpaper

Soft, pastel shades for Spring comes to mind with my latest nail challenge design and thoughts of watercolours.


Get the Look:
1. Apply a caramel colour base like China Glaze Classic Caramel.



2. Pour a drop of your colour into a painter's palette. Using an art brush, dip your brush into some acetone and then into your drop of nail polish. Lightly tap the colour onto the nail bed in random areas. 
3. Repeat this process using different colours to achieve a soft watercolour effect. Colours used in this design are: NYX Algae (seafoam green), China Glaze Hanging in the Balance (medium bright blue), Liquid Leather (black), Bend Over Backwards (red). 
4. If you want a more blended effect, simple use a clean brush dipped lightly into acetone and just dab over the parts you want to soften out.
5. Seal in your design with your favourite 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

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
