Inspired by Carmen Marc Valvo for NYFW Spring 2014: Black & White Stripe Out

Hello beautiful! Do you remember my last set of fashion week inspired nail art? Fashion remains one of my many sources of inspiration for nail art. I am always overwhelmed by the designs, colors and fabric. Today's design is inspired by Carmen Marc Valvo and the collection produced for New York Fashion Week Spring 2014. This piece is modern yet edgy with the complementary hair cut and style pulling the entire look together. Here is my take of this gorgeous dress represented in my nail art. 

Dress Source
Tutorial:
  1. Apply two coats of a white polish: L.A Colors Energy Source
  2. Take the sharpness off this white by using one coat of an off white sheer polish: Sally Hansen Polar Bare. The bright white provides the opaque base but the off white takes the edge off the color. 
  3. Using black acrylic paint and a small detailing brush, draw horizontal lines to mimic the design on the dress. Add smaller vertical lines. 
  4. For the accent nail, use the collar of the dress as your inspiration
  5. Complete with a top coat to smoothen out your design and add a matte finish: NYC Matte Me Crazy.

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
