Oxblood, merlot, wine, burgundy, maroon… Whatever name you decide to call this deep red colour, it’s without a doubt it’s the colour of the season. From head to toe, we’re seeing these rich coloured clothes and accessories everywhere, and I still can’t get enough!

BeautyManicure Monday: Black Cat Nails with Syl and Sam

Hey ladies,

As soon as October rolls around, we get into a Hallowe’en mood. We’re already thinking up costumes and collecting new creepy decorations. This week we decided to do some cute black cat nails to get us in the mood, but this manicure can be done any time of year if you’re a kitty lover!
Here’s the look we’re going for:
What you’ll need:
- base coat colours (we used a rainbow of colours)
- black nail polish
- red and white polishes and a striper brush
Start with a few coats of your base colour. You can definitely pick a single colour, but we went for a rainbow look for fun!
Then take a solid black colour and brush on a half circle shape at the tip of your nail. This will be your cat’s head! Do the same on all of your nails
Then taking your striper brush, draw pointed ears on each head.
Then take your red and apply a tiny dot for a nose using a thin striper brush. You can also use a toothpick or small dotting tool. Do the same with the white polish to make dotted eyes. We didn’t show the step but you can also add a curly little tail with your black polish using your striping brush!
Top coat and you’re done! MEOW!

BeautyManicure Monday: Tribal Nails with Syl and Sam

Hey ladies, 
This week we’re going to show you how to get the stylish modern “tribal” pattern nails. They look really intricate and detailed but when broken down to some easy steps, you can totally get the look in no time!

Here’s what we’re going for:
What you’ll need:
- white base coat
- white striper
- three contrast colours, I used a teal, orange and yellow.
- a black nail art pen

Start with a few coats of your base colour and don’t worry if the coverage isn’t the greatest, it mostly gets covered anyway.

Next grab your contrast colours and do some random stripes across each nail.

Just keep the colours random and do a coouple of stripes per nail. Wait for these coats to dry completely before continuing!

Then take your nail art pen and draw outlines for each of your horizontal stripes that you drew.

And now the fun part! In between each set of lines, draw any repeated geometric pattern. Some patterns I drew were triangles, zig zags, polka dots and concentric circles. Continue with the rest of your nails and then top coat!

That’s it! Once it’s broken down into a few easy steps, those really intricate nails aren’t actually that difficult to do! They’re a bit time consuming but it’s worth it for the compliments you’ll get!
