Nail Challenge Day 9: Golden Chic Saran Wrap

It's amazing how simple techniques like this one; the saran wrap can produce simply stunning designs. All you need is at least two contrasting colours and some saran wrap of course. For my Golden Chi Saran Wrap nails I'm using a chocolate brown with golden shimmer called Midtown Magic from China Glaze and Gold Plated from L.A.Girl Metal polish line.


Get the look:
1. Apply your favourite base coat and two coats of your chocolate brown polish. Allow to dry properly.


2. Pour some of your gold polish into a painter's palette well. 
3. Using a piece of saran wrap, crumple it up to add some texture and then dab gentle into your gold polish well. Don't overload the saran wrap with polish, dab off any excess.
4. Now gently dab your saran wrap onto your base colour. 
5. Repeat until you are happy with your design and contrast of the two colours together. 
6. Seal in with a shiny top coat.

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. 

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.
