New Year 2014 Nail Art

Happy New Years my beloved bees! I'm so glad you have joined me for the start of the new year with more wonderful nail art, beauty reviews and makeup looks to share with you. Here the simple yet stunning nail design that was with me when the clock struck midnight into 2014!


I started off this look with 2 coats of L.A Girl cosmetics Color Pop nail polish in Lovely. This is a rich creme lilac based pink shade which is opaque with the 2 coats.


I first used black acrylic paint to write the words on each nail. The writing is slanted so it fits on the nail bed but leaves room at the tips for the glitter. Also using the acrylic paints, draw a curved line from one side of the nail starting from about half way up the nail and then moving down to create a slanted french tip shape.


Using L.A Girl Glitter Addict nail polish in Provocative apply to a sponge allowing for a few minutes for the clear base to sink in and then sponge onto the tips in the blank space you just created with the black. This polish has fuchsia hexagon and glitter pieces. Repeat until you get the intense glitter look at the tips.
Using a toothpick or dotting tool, pick out the larger hexagon pieces and apply along the black line created earlier. 
Complete the manicure with a thick coat of Seche Vite.


So here's to you having a wonderful and yet another new year with me. I have lots more wonderful nail designs, tutorials and techniques to share with you. Grazie!


Happy New Year 2014!

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!
