is a website that offers women a platform upon which they can discuss all things beauty-related, where they can interact and express their opinions about beauty topics within a safe community of fellow beauty-lovers; where they can ask questions, write reviews and have discussions in the community chat.

They have now recently started doing Monthly Challenges, with fabulous prizes & last month;

I decided to take on their Nail Challenge. For this challenge there were 10 pre-determined themes and I will be sharing my interpretation (and creations) of them with you over the next couple of weeks 🙂

Theme no. 1 was: Red

For this look, I did 2 coats of bright red nail polish, and while the 2nd coat was still wet, I carefully ‘stuck on’ a piece of black lace, which I had previously cut to roughly the size of each nail.

Once the lace was securely in place on my nail, I used a small pair of sharp pointed scissors to ‘trim’ the lace to the exact size of each nail, and then applied a generous amount of clear top coat, to further secure the lace to my nails. This also ‘hardened the lace, making the look more durable.

Here are the products I used to create this look:

1.)   Sally Hansen‘s Double Duty Top & Base coat (clear)

2.)   No 67 (red glittery) nail polish from Ralo Cosmetics

3.)   Black lace bought at my favourite haberdashery shop

And for my lips:

4.)   Currant Souffle lipstick from Avroy Slain

5.)   Stay Glossy lipgloss by Rimmel London in Treasure Hunt
