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.

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. 

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.
