Busy Girl Hitting The Beach

It's vacation time for me for the next 3 weeks and I always think of sun, sea and sand when it's my vacation. This year I will be heading away from that and instead crossing over the waters to Canada. So this fun, beach manicure will have to suffice this year while I go crazy shopping up the malls and taking in the beautiful landscape and sites in Toronto.

Beach Nails
To get these fun, beach nails here is what you will need:
  • Neutral: Off white or caramel color to represent the sand. I'm using China Glaze Classic Caramel
  • Light Blue: Color of the water. I'm using Sally Hansen Blizzard Blue
  • Dark Blue: Color of the water, to bring in more depth to the sea. I'm using Kleancolor Metallic Aqua
  • White: Foam of the water where the waves breaks on the shore. I'm using L.A Color Energy Source
  • Red: For the starfish. I'm using LA Colors Pop Art in Red.
  • Tools: Makeup sponge, painter's palette, top coat.


Tutorial:
  1. Start off with your base coat and then two coats of your neutral sandy base color. Allow to dry.
  2. Using the white polish apply to a makeup sponge and dab onto the nail bed. This will look like the froth of the waves. Apply in various patterns on each nail for a unique look.
  3. Using the light blue dab onto the nail lower than the white.
  4. Repeat step 3 using a darker blue but again a little lower than the lighter blue.
  5. Using a red stripper make little starfishes on the sand. Add a few white dots for dimension.
  6. Clean up and apply a top coat to seal in your design.

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.
