Please can someone tell me if the glimmer stick precision eyeliner is meant to twist up? I've just got my 1st one and I can't see how I'm supposed to use it when the current tip is worn down. Can anyone answer my daft question? Thanks in advance
Hi Beauty Connects!
Wedding season is officially here and with a certain high profile wedding this weekend I could not wait to get a glimpse of the bride's gown! What did you think?
It's 9 months now until my big day and I am still without a dress even after having tried lots on! I must admit some of them are so expensive for just one day! Has anyone got any advice?

Howdy ABC! Welcome to the latest instalment of easy peasy nail tutorials, this week it's all about the Dots! A doticure is a mani comprising of dots/spots, let your imagination go crazy with this style, there are no rules. I have a set of dotting tools which I got from Ebay, easily available for £1. A set usually comprises of 5 double ended tools with varying sizes of ball shaped ends. However, you don't need to use special dotting tools, you can use anything from a hair grip, toothpick, orange stick, expired ball point pen, a sewing pin, you get my drift. Before I apply dots, I always test the polish and dotting tool on a piece of paper to see how workable it is, ie consistency of the polish, how much pressure to apply etc. I always do a bit of a test on paper before applying to my nails. Dab a brush load of the polish onto a piece of paper that you want to dot with. With your dotting tool, dip into the polish which is on the paper and dot onto your nails. Sometimes you can get more than one dot from the polish on your tool. Dot quite quickly, ie don't hold the tool onto your nail as it'll dry and smudge. You might need a bit of practice just to get to grips with how to work with the polish and tool but it is very easy and a fairly fast method. Once you've done all the dots, let them dry before applying top coat. Applying top coat when the dots are wet will cause them to smear. Here are the two designs I'm going to show you. Red & Gold Doticure Base - Avon True Colour Naked Truth Dots - Avon Metallic Effects Gold & Avon Nailwear pro+ Grape Goddess I firstly applied the gold dots along the centre of my nails, then applied the red dots Blue Doticure Base - Avon Mark Rain Washed Dots - All Avon Mark - Just Beachy, So Jelly & Olive-It I used different sized dotting tools for each colour. I started off with the largest dotting tool and painted the green dots, then medium in blue, and filled in any gaps with the small in purple I hope you've enjoyed this week's challenge, please feel free to share any pics you have of your doticures Next Week - Gems Toodles!
