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!

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.
