Busy Girl Nails Fall 2013 Challenge Week 4: Pumpkin Patch

How do you like your pumpkins? It's a favorite amongst my family and boyfriend so I recently started learning with my mom's help how to cook it. But today's "Pumpkin Patch" is certainly one I can cook up on the spot! 


Get the look:
1. Start off with two coats of a rich orange colour like Orly Flicker. This is from the Fall 2012 collection. Apply a fast drying top coat to lock in this colour.


2. Using KleanColor Mandarin Burst (a neon yellow orange color) either use the brush from the bottle or a small nail art brush to apply cut out of this polish on top of your orange base color. 
3. Repeat in other shapes using another orange color. I used a medium tone orange acrylic paint.
4. Using a black stripper brush polish outline the shapes where the colors meet.

NB: You can stop here if you like by adding a top coat; this will be a color block design.


5. To complete your patchwork, using the same black stripper brush polish, add small stitches to the first set of black lines created.
6. Seal in your design with a fast drying top coat like Seche Vite.

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. 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 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.
