Nail Challenge Day 31: Brush Strokes Recreation

Today's the final day of the nail challenge and it is a bittersweet moment for me! I totally enjoyed trying new techniques and seeing how my actual designs were created from my initial thoughts and ideas. Earlier on in the challenge I feel in love with Jayne's watercolor design; with it's simple color scheme but gorgeous effect.


During my attempt to recreate her design, for some strange reason the acetone refused to diffuse the nail color to soften the look on the base color. So I tried and tried and gave up on the watercolor effect, but instead I used her same color scheme of soft white base with blue and pink as brushstrokes instead of the watercolor. 

Colours used: Sacha Cosmetics Barefoot in the Sand (nude), China Glaze Beauty Within (pink) and Hanging in the Balance (blue)


Thank you for seeing me through my second nail challenge and don't forget to check out my challenge buddies. Stay tuned for more nail designs and other beauty adventures with me!

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!
