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!

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

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.
