Cute D.I.Y Dripping Nails Tutorial

Merry Christmas everyone! ;)

Just a quick post today! Since my dripping nails drew a bit of attention, I wanted to show you how you can re-create it without any tools whatsoever.

So basically you'd need to select two colours; one as a base, and the other to create dripping tips.

Here I'm using Rimmel's Mocha Fever which is a gorgeous rich colour with tiny flecks of glitter embedded to give it an extra dimension, and Rimmel's London Clours as my "snow/vanilla" drips.

Step 1: Start with your base colour.
This is how it looks with two coats of Mocha Fever.

Step 2: Using your second lacquer, draw downwards (to the tip of your nails) on either sides of the nail. Best to have drips of varying heights and always start from 1/3 or 1/4 from the tip of your nails.

Step 3: Connect the drips by going over the tips of your nails. Don't worry if it's messy. It's supposed to look that way.

Finish with a top coat and you're done! ;)

I hope everyone's having a great safe Christmas.
Spotted this cute car yesterday!! :3

Happy holidays!!

Aussie Blogger Kris Kringle ♥

So I participated in an Aussie Kris Kringle for bloggers recently. At first I was kicking myself because I always get a little stressed when I have to get something for someone I don't really know, but after going through my Kris Kringle's blog, I kinda had an idea of the things to get her :3

I will reveal to you who I got at the end of this blog entry ;)

Anyway!! My Kris Kringle arrived a couple days ago and I found that it was the awesome Jen from QuestJen!!

I felt like she really made a lot of effort into putting my pressie together.I got some nail items; lace nail deco and a nail polish, plus an eyeliner, makeup palette (I know right!!) and a L'occitane hand cream sample.

I even got a card from her!! I didn't send one to mine +___+
Jen wrote such sweet things in the card, made me feel warm and fuzzy inside :)

I was so pleasantly surprised to find a makeup palette inside. Very useable colours! Love it!

So sparkly and pigmented! I used it immediately!

To create this!
Looks so yummy huh??

I loveeeee nail lace designs! Thank you so much!!

I got such great items that I felt ashamed of the things I purchased for my chosen kris kringle, Teresa from [clicky here to pop over and have a look see ;)].
Fortunately for me, she seemed to like the items :)

In all, it was a very good experience because I had never participated in blogger activities/events. It was good fun and I'm glad to be introduced to new bloggers.

Can't wait for next year!!! :D
