Nail Challenge Day 25: Inspired by your Childhood

Hello beautiful! This manicure is taking me down memory lane to when I first remembered nail polish and how both my mom and grandmother loved red nail polish. Red was always the colour of choice and as a child for a while I believed that there was no other colour of polish. This design is dedicated to my maternal grandmother who in addition to loving red nail polish, also loved gold jewelry. Here I'm using the new Sacha Cosmetics Pure Jewels to add some gold to my design :)


Get the Look:
1. Paint your nails with two coats of the new Sacha Cosmetics nail polish in Scorching Hot. Allow to dry completely




2. Put a small quantity of Sacha Cosmetics Pure Jewels in Pure Fire in a painter's palette. Add a drop of clear polish and mix to a paste. Dab a makeup sponge into the mixture and then gently tap into the nail bed about 3/4 up from the nail tip.
3. Repeat set 2 using Pure Jewels in Pure Copper a bit lower down the nail tip ensuring it blends with Pure Fire.
4. Concentrate Pure Jewels in Pure Dazzle using step 2 at the nail tips and move to blend into the Pure Copper. 
5. Smoothen glitter gradient with a clear top coat.

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…
