BusyGirlNails Winter Nail Art Challenge Week 3: Glitter Heart

I've literally been quite the Busy Girl this week and I can finally get my Glitter challenge done for week 3 of the BusyGirlNails winter challenge. What says "I love you" more than glitter, well to a nail lover anyway :) 



Nail  Art Tutorial:
1. Apply your base coat and then 3 coats of Nicole by OPI in Rainbow in the S-Kylie. Do this for all your nails except your accent nail.
2. For the accent nail, apply two coats of OPI Italian Love Affair and allow to dry fully. Apply a top coat to speed up the drying time. 
3. Using tape, cut out a heart shape to fit on your accent nail. Take off some of the stickiness so that the tape just barely adheres to the nail but without taking off the polish underneath when it is removed.
4. Place the tape in the middle of the accent nail and then fill in the heart cut out with your glitter polish. Move around the glitter so it fills in the shape. 
5. Remove the tape immediately to reveal your glitter heart shape underneath.
6. For some definition, use pink acrylic paint to highlight your heart. Seal in with your favorite top coat.



Stay tuned for the week 4 challenge: Blue!

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.
