Californails #NailArtMar Day 4: Vintage Purple Ombre

Purple is one of my favorite colors especially in nail polishes. Today's design takes inspiration from vintage flowers wrapped up in a lilac/ purple ombre background. Gradient nails are not to be confused for Ombre nails. Gradient is more of a design where one color transitions into another color or more while ombre is from light to dark. I guess in some ways you can have an integration of both.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Start off your ombre design using lilac and purple polishes: From light to dark; China Glaze Sweet Hook, Cailyn Cosmetics #834, NYX Cosmetics Golden Lavender, Wet N Wild Wild Card/ Invitation and Sinful Color Fig.
2. Allow to dry fully and add a top coat. Add a rhinestone to the top of each nail bed before the top coat dries.


The rest of the design was handpainted using purple (Apple Barrel Lavender), white, green (Apple Barrel Meadow green) acrylic paints with a Winstonia #00 paint brush and small dotting tool.

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.
