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

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

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
