Nail Challenge Day 21: Mystical Mermaid Merge

I've been crazy about gradient nails from the first time I've tried this DIY nail art design. So here I am again using a gradient design which essentially is nail colors merged into one color base and then to make this special I'm turning this into some mystical mermaid nails :) Would you like to see a tutorial?


Get the Look:
1. Apply two coats of Kleancolor Jazz Olive, a light shimmery green.
2. Pour some medium green like Kleancolor Metallic Green into a painter's palette. Take a sponge, dab it into the colour lightly and then onto the nail bed up to 2/3 the length. 
3. Repeat step 2 using a darker aqua green colour like Kleancolor Metallic Aqua to the nail tip, concentrating the colour right at the tip. 
4. Now that you have completely the mermaid base clean up any nail polish spills and apply a top coat to smoothen the green gradient. Next apply a few pink, purple and green hexagons to mimic the scales on the mermaid fin. 
5. Add some treasure! Just a few rhinestone and pearls to complete your mystical mermaid design :) 



Stay tuned for more nail challenge inspired nail art and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
