Inspired by Rebecca Minkoff for NYFW Spring 2014: Mustard Sashay

I'm continuing on with my nail art inspired from NYFW Spring 2014 collections and today's muse is a beautiful print dress from Rebecca Minkoff's collection that flows as the model sashayed down the runway. This fun print is definitely a little number I would wear for a weekend date :)

Dress Source
Tutorial:
  1. Start with an off white shade like Sally Hansen Polar Bare. I used 3 coats since it is a bit sheer.
  2. Using black acrylic paint and a stripper brush, draw about 4 vertical lines in the centre of the nails. They don't have to be perfect lines, so go ahead and add a bit of wiggle.
  3. Once those are dry, add two sets of horizontal lines to form a criss cross pattern
  4. For the accent nail, the vertical lines start off as diagonal lines that meet in the middle of the nail bed and continue vertically. Do one set of horizontal lines too for a criss cross pattern on this nail.
  5.  Using a mustard yellow acrylic paint and a fine detailing brush, add some yellow flowers and leaves to your design. With the tiniest bit of black dots for the middle.
  6. Add a shiny top coat: Essence Absolute Pure and voila!

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 I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
