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 myteeefine.com [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

Day at the Caulfield Races


 I had such a great time with my colleagues at the Caulfield Races for a small Christmas event. Unfortunately at least half of the staff were not able to turn up due to commitments, but it didn't really matter as we all thoroughly enjoyed our time at the race course.






Due to respect for my colleagues' privacy, I am censoring their faces. Fortunately I managed to find some adorable photoshop brushes to mask their true identities with cuteness.


In the end I decided on the first dress cause it was such a beautiful bright colour! It was also much more elegant-looking than the other dress.




































































As some of you may know, the races are usually formal events where participants must adhere to a strict dress code. Women are highly encouraged to wear hats or fascinators.

We just stuck flowers into our hair but as you can see in the last photo on the right, one of my colleagues actually used a fascinator! :D

For most of us, it was our first time at the races so it was pretty exciting. We all tried to have a go at betting on some horses. I did win some but not enough to recover my losses; I think in all, I must have lost around $25 which isn't a lot! It's all for a bit of fun ;)

It was a great experience and certainly one of which I will not easily forget.


Hope everyone's had a good weekend too!! ♥
