Last night I finally had the opportunity to meet and hang out with fellow beauty blogger, Marta of Chit Chat Nails. For those of you who haven't had a chance to read her posts, Marta is an amazingly creative nail artist whose nail of the day posts put others to shame. Luckily for me, Marta was sweet enough to agree to do my nails for the World AIDS Day event I am going to in Toronto tomorrow.
To start, Marta used two coats of Sally Hansen's Whirlwind White', a thick creamy white polish as the base for my manicure. Next, using Zoya's 'Sooki' (a bright red polish) and Konad Plate m65, Marta stamped red roses all over my nails (it was my first time seeing a nail stamp in action!). To add a bit of glitter to the nails, Marta used Color Club's 'Red Glitter' and a dotting tool to make little dots around the roses. Finally, Marta, who claimed she wasn't good at freehand art (ya right!), drew a red ribbon (the AIDS symbol) on my ring fingers using a nail brush and Zoya's 'Sooki'.
I am in love with the manicure, and so happy that Marta not only lives in my city, but is willing to do my nails any time I want. Thank you so much Marta!
I'm really excited for the event tomorrow and can't wait to tell you all about it. In the meantime, be sure to follow me on twitter for updates and pictures from the event.
