Busy Girl Nails Fall 2013 Challenge Week 3: Golden OxBlood Chevrons

Oh wow! I didn't realize how much I would love this color! This rich oxblood red from Orly is called Smolder and is from their fall 2012 collection. I've combine it simply with gold chevron tips for an elegant and fall inspired design.


Let's just take a moment to gaze at the beauty of Orly Smolder, such rich colour in two coats.


Get the look:
1. Apply your two coats of Orly Smolder. Seal in with a fast drying top coat. This will make any mistakes with your acrylic paints easier for clean up.
2. Using a striper brush create a chevron tip using gold acrylic paint
3. Go over the chevron with a sparkling gold acrylic paint.
4. Smoothen with a fast drying top coat

I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

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…
