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

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. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
