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!

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.
