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.

Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush. I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
