Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Valentine's Stripes

Oh Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I'm celebrating this year with red, pink and white with a dash of hearts in my nail art design. I recreated my Teal Stripe gradient nails for this fun and girly version.


To get this look:
1. Apply two coats of China Glaze Igniting Love and allow to dry fully.
2. Using white acrylic paint and a long striper brush apply loose stripes all along the nail bed reaching about 1/3 way up.
3. Repeat with a soft pink acrylic paint just stopping the stripes lower down.
4. Repeat again using a hot pink acrylic paint again stopping the stripes lower down that where the soft pink ended.
5. Add a touch of your red polish in stripes to the edges of your nails.
6. Allow to dry fully and then add some pink and white hearts over the stripes.
7. Complete with a generous amount of a fast drying top coat.

Stay tuned for the 11th and last design in this challenge: Silver

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!
