Californails Nail Art January Challenge 2014: Teal Dot Gradient

Welcome my little beauty bees! I've really been enjoying this monthly challenge from Californails for January 2014 and today's post takes on a favorite nail art category for me: the gradient. Since I've already done a sponge gradient in my Las Vegas nails and a stripe gradient in my Teal Striper nails I decided to do a simple dot gradient to round out my gradient nails done already for this challenge.


Start off with two coats of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons and allow to dry fully. Next get two teal colors of your choice but one light and one dark. You also want two or three sizes of dotting tools. 
Start off with the largest dotter and the darker teal shade from the nail tips creating large dots. Make medium sizes one with this same shade in the middle of the nail and small ones going closer to the cuticles. Repeat with the lighter teal shade but overlapping the darker dots.


I used Butter London Henley Regatta for the darker teal shade and Kleancolor Catch Me for the lighter shade, all sealed off with a coat of Seche Vite. 

Oh and this design is also fitting for week one of the BusyGirlNails winter challenge: Teal. 

Stay tuned for the 7th design in this challenge: Sweets

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! 

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
