Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Denim Jean OOTD inspired with tutorial

What are you wearing today? Give me a chance and I will wear jeans or denim everyday! But I usually reserve it for Casual Fridays and Slouchy Saturdays :) Today's nail art post gives you a design inspired by my newest pair of dark denim jeans with a bonus of my tutorial to achieve the look yourself. 


I haven't seen anyone achieve the look of jeans nail art this way but if you know of anyone please let me know. Otherwise I would be super excited to show you a new way of achieving a denim like look nail art design. Let's begin.


1. Apply your base coat and two coats of L.A Girl Color Addict in Idol. Add one coat of L.A Colors color craze in Cobalt for just a hint of sparkle but this is optional. (Top left hand picture)
2. Using a piece of cloth with ribs in the fabric, apply a small amount of your white nail polish (I used China Glaze White on White) onto the cloth. Some of the polish will soak into the cloth. Just apply enough to cover a section for your nails but not have the cloth soaking wet with polish. Some trial and error maybe needed here. Next gently roll the cloth over your nail bed so that the white pattern transfers onto the blue base. 
3. Repeat step 2 just in the opposite grain direction but with blue polish instead of white to break up the first white pattern and create a seemingly interwoven pattern just like in your fabric. 
4. Seal in your design with your favorite top coat.




Stay tuned for the 10th design in this challenge: Recreation

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
