Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Swirly Sweets

Oh I have a bad sweet tooth. I eat everything from chocolates and candy to cakes and cookies. The best part about it is that they don't add a lot of weight to the waistline (just yet). For today's nail art design I am taking inspiration from candy and those awesome swirls found in peppermints and other hard sweets as well as those huge lollipops. 


For this design I used an assortment of bright colors for the bases: 
Maybelline Navy Narcissist (blue), Orly La Vida Loca (pink), China Glaze Igniting love (red). The swirls themselves were handpainted on using white acrylic paint and my #3 striper brush from BornPrettyStore. 



Stay tuned for the 8th design in this challenge: Studs

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.
