Peter Som Spring 2014 NYFW Inspired Nail Art: Orange Floral

I continue to be inspired from the colours, prints and textures of the original designs seen on the catwalks of NYFW Spring 2014 collections. Today's nail art draws from a floral print by Peter Som. I love the contrast of the print with a solid color. Orange is a trendy color as of late and my latest design takes on a richer hue which complements my darker skintone. 



Get the look:
1. Paint all your nails two coats of a rich, black nail polish like Nabi black. Leave out your accent nail.
2. Using white acrylic paint, do big white abstract flowers on the black base. 
3. Sheer out the white with water or mix a little of a soft orange acrylic paint into the white to make it offwhite. Dab this color around the edges of your big white flowers to soften the harsh edges and to give your flowers some dimension.
4. Add a small orange dot to the middle of your design and tinier dots around this center dot. (Note: the original piece uses more of a pink/ red colour but I choose orange)
5. Seal in with a fast drying top coat. I'm using my beloved Seche Vite.
6. Using three coats of Sally Hansen Moonlight Dance for your accent nail. Allow to dry fully and seal in with a top coat.


Did you notice my nails are now oval instead of square? I'm enjoying a change for the moment :)

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!
