Morenike's Bridal Makeover

Lagos, January 17th 2015.


Morenike reached out to me last year, we finally met last week for her trial and I loved working with her. Not only because she was super chill even after a flat tyre in the middle of third mainland bridge (my greatest fear in the world btw) made me late but also because she got excited when I broke out the glitter.

For her champagne and red aso-oke outfit for her traditional Yoruba wedding, she wanted neutral sparkly eyes and a bright red lip...Mission accomplished don't you think?

NOTD: Iridescent Bling In Nude Nail Art

To ring in the new year I wanted shiny nails but instead of turning to my growing glitter collection, I reached for nude polish and crystals to create something more subtle.

Above I'm wearing 2 coats of Inglot Matte Nail Enamel in #715 topped with Orly top coat to give the matte nail polish a glossy finish. On my ring finger I topped the Inglot nail polish with 2 coats of Pure Ice glitter polish in Spit Fire.
Then with nail glue I added large iridescent crystals from Amazing shine* to the cuticle area of each nail (except the ring finger) and on my index finger I created a triangular shape with the iridescent crystals* in 3 sizes.

Et voila!


I'm loving the way these turned out. Think they would make nice bridal nails too, for girls like me that like a little extra shine ;-)



Would you rock these?

Afia's Traditional Wedding

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I'm kicking off the new year with some of the amazing jobs I did last year. One of my favs was working with Afia for her traditional wedding in Accra, Ghana.

On boxing day I set off for my first ever trip to Ghana for my darling Afia. She has been a client of mine for a while now, we started of as just client and makeup artist but now I can proudly call her a good friend or as she puts it a sister (I have fallen in love with her mum too).

For her traditional wedding she wanted a simple look nothing out of the ordinary. All attempts to get her to try something more or even a bigger gele were a bust LOL. So gave her what she wanted a clean fresh look. She loved it and so did we.
