Soft & Pretty Watercolors with Candy Sweet Bows

This Busy Girl is having a blast on her vacation but always makes time for her nails. It's week 8 of the Busy Girl Nails summer nail challenge as well as the last design for this challenge. It was indeed super fun. Watercolor nails are really easy and indeed a perfect DIY nail art. Here's my version with added bows for a 3D look.



What you will need:
  1. Neutral base color: I'm using Sacha Cosmetics Barefoot in the Sand.
  2. Pink: China Glaze Beauty Within
  3. Blue: Cailyn Cosmetics #818
  4. Purple: NYX Golden Lavender
  5. Tools: Top coat, Acetone, Acrylic bows (optional)


Tutorial:
  1. Paint your nails two coats of the cream base color. Allow to dry fully.
  2. Apply a top coat over the base color to protect it from erosion by the acetone.
  3. Apply a few drops of the purple color on random spots on one nail. Using a brush, dip into the acetone to soak the bristles lightly with the acetone. Wipe off any excess and then tap the acetone onto the drops of color. This will cause the color to fade softly. Repeat on all other nails.
  4. Repeat step 3 with the pink and blue colors. Go over each nail bed with the acetone until the colors fading into each other softly.
  5. Seal with a top coat.

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!
