Busy Girl Nails Fall 2013 Challenge: Week 1- Golden Streaks

Oh how I love a good nail challenge with good friends and new ones too! Today's design takes the theme for week 1 of the Busy Girl Nails fall 2013 nail art challenge: Antique Gold. 



Tutorial:
1. Start off with your base coat and then apply 3 coats of  L.A girl metal nail polish in Gold Plated. 


2. Using a variety of fall colours like orange (Orly Flicker),  oxblood red (Orly Smolder), plum (Orly Ingenue) and antique gold (L.A girl metal Antique Gold) add stripes of each of these colours to the center of the nail bed.
3. Allow the colors to overlap in some places and blend into each other at some points. 
4. Add a touch of glitter using folk art extreme glitter acrylic paint in gold. 
5. Seal in with a fast drying top coat (Seche Vite! My favorite)


Join in on this fall nail challenge by posting your nail designs on instagram or on your blog using the hashtag #BusyGirlNails and tagging the girls hosting this challenge: @drinkcitra, @BeautyByArielle, @fiercemakeupandnails, @mirandasmakeup and @marijonails :)

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…
