Californails #NailArtMar Day 11: Multi-Neon Brushstrokes

While the rest of the world is waiting for some sunshine and spring to happen, I'm all sunshine over here in the Caribbean. We wear bright colors all year round and I have a fondness for neon brights. Today's nail art challenge called for neons but instead of doing it for retina searing goodness I have toned it down with a black base.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Paint your nails two coats of L.A Girls Metal polish in Obsidian (black with shimmer). Allow to dry fully.
2. Using a fan brush and 4 neon colors of your choice (I used Claire's Neon minis), apply to the nail to form brushstrokes. 
3. Apply one color in one diagonal direction and then let the other color overall going in the other diagonal direction. 
4. Continue applying the colors over each other and repeat in case any color gets lost in the background.
5. Apply your favorite top coat.

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 I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
