Christmas Candy Canes Nail Art

I have a big sweet tooth and some of my favorites around the holidays are candy canes and peppermints! Of course I can gobble down a big bag of chocolates too but today I'm sticking with my candy :)


I love the fact that my favorite top coat Seche Vite also has a line of nail polishes simply called Seche Nail Lacquer. For today's nail art I'm using two coats of a luscious Christmas red called Signature.



I was so in love with this color that I wore this alone for my Christmas party! It's so festive. 
Now onto the nail art, I simply used white acrylic paint and a fine liner brush to create candy stripes across the nail beds. I did it in various thickness and spaced them out differently in each nail. I also add a bit of Folk Art extreme glitter acrylic paint in Hologram for a hint of sparkle.


Have you ever seen how candy canes are made? I've seen it on Unwrapped on the Food Network :)

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.

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

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
