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.  

From Left to Right: Pure Fire, Copper and Dazzle

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise! 

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
