My Sunset Bay!

Hi guys! Been a while since i last show you some cute toe nails design! I youtube’d some video and thought that this is pretty easy to do even though I might not have all the colours!

IMG_6036

Are you able to tell what color I’d used in this nail art? In this nail art, the only polish color I used was a white polish from China Glaze (white on white). The rest of the colors? Acrylic paint of course! Yellow… Orange… Red.. & Black!

To get this effect, all u need is a makeup sponge and use the sponging method to do it! I’ll include a video shortly at the end of the post where you can learn and DIY! My nail art was also inspired by the video from SimpleNailArtDesigns!

See! It’s beautiful! If i’m going holiday with this nail art, it would makes it PERFECT!! Beach~ Resort~ Sunset~ Ahhhhhh…. Why am I still sitting here?

So without further ado.. Here’s the video tutorial by SimpleNailArtDesigns!

P.S.: I’m still confuse why my Sally Hansen Sheer Pink looks more like sheer beige. (?_?)

Penguins on the run!

It’s a cooling evening and i decided to do something COOL! A cool penguin!! Sorry, i mean 5 cool penguins! I watched a few tutorial and decided to go with this..

It’s not VERY ALIKE but it’s some where there already! Below you’ll see that i did not go with the “all black” nail color.. I chose to paint my nails all different color so that i can have a variety of penguins!

20130811-133013.jpg

I picked out a few vibrant color from my stash and ….. tadaa~!

The Original – Black Onyx

The Lady – High Hope

The Gentleman – Secret Peri-Wink-Le

The Boy – Vert Chlorophylle

The Sunshine – Happy Go Lucky

20130811-132952.jpg

This is a really simple nail art.. you(I) just need MORE PRACTICE! Seeing this little cuties really makes my day but too much of them makes me feel eerie.. So many penguins looking at u… gosh!

20130811-133007.jpg

Btw, the orange beak and feet are achieve by using nail paint (orange + white).. Seriously, I think I really like using nail paint to draw! They are sooo easy to use and dry within a reasonable time!

20130811-133021.jpg

So after my drawing is done.. I seal them with a top coat like how the tutorial did… 20130811-133029.jpg

Cool penguins? I think i will do this again some day but with lesser penguin maybe?? hahaha!

This is a short post because i think what i need to say has been explained in the video! Check out SimpleNailArtDesigns on youtube for more cute nail art videos!!

Marbling my Nails! Yey-hooo!

After my bad nail day, today seems pretty alright~! Alright not because it’s a smooth day but because I managed to do something out of the worst… LOL!

Today i used a hot pink from OPI (You’re A Pisa Work).. I didn’t expect to fall so deeply in love with this color – probably it came at the right time! I was actually looking for a color that will goes well with black but i don’t want something too dark. What color goes well with black? LOTS! Red, pink, yellow, green, blue, purple… but i don’t want something too bright/striking at the same time.. (how contradicting, i know…) I think pink is good.. Not to strong yet very can bring out the lady in you! hahaha..

Now my problem is…. after looking through my stash… i don’t have the right pink that my mind has been thinking… It was all either too pastel or too red or contain shimmer.. 😦 Then i recall.. “I have a pressie that i had not use!!” and (ta-daaa!) I pull out my HOT PINK from my other drawer and what u see below is my PISA WORK! LOL! You’re A Pisa Work is a great purplish-hot pink! It’s opaque and strong and it’s PINK! yeahhh.. Best of all, it goes well with black! Okay, enough of color choosing!! It’s time for water marbling!!!!

I always hesitate to do water marble effect because it’s gonna be very messy and INDEED it is messy! (At the end of the post, i will share with you a youtube post where i get my inspiration from)

IMG_4299

Seee!! But it’s OK(!) because i had recently bought my OPI nail lacquer remover! It’s so powerful then a gentle wipe can clean up most of my mess already!! Value for money indeed!!

Now all clean and cool!

On the other hand… (impromptu) I did another color! instead of black, I used white! Using the same method, did my water marble again!

Doing water marble effect is easy but the only thing is that u can’t really control where it is going “break open”.. Effect is really random and not uniform. But again, maybe that’s the beauty of it..

So which one do you prefer? Black or white? (i personally prefer the black one~ ^__^)      IMG_4320

So here’s the video that got me inspired to do this…

(go to 0:54 to see how to achieve the stone marble effect)

Obviously my marble is much fatter than what cutepolish did but I STILL LOVE ‘EM!!! ❤ ❤

My First Velvet Nails!

GOOD DAY EVERYONE!!! I have a v v important thing to share!!!! Heee! I did my first ever velvet nail art!!

20130608-004845.jpg

Pretty?? Let me be proud just this once!! I think it’s pretty awesome!!!! HAHAHAHA!!! (The fact: definitely rooms for more improvement!)

I dun do tutorial video but this is so easy and u do not need video to be able to it! All u need is juz a base color (for my case, white), a primary colour (I chose turquoise green) and velvet powder!!! And prior to that, a good base & top coat is v important!!! Be sure to get them ready tooooo!

20130608-005002.jpg

So what I did here is just apply my base color to all nails! Then I use my dotting tool to dot some clear base coat into my nail plate after I’m done w the base color!

20130608-195143.jpg

Before ur base coat dries up, quickly sprinkle/pour some velvet powder over ur nails… Those area where u’re dot will now be occupied with the velvet powder..!!

A quick note, before dealing with your velvet powder remember to place a pcs of paper on the table (below your hand!!) You will realize it is a very important step! Hahaha!! Why? Because the “over-poured” velvet powder can then be put back into the container containing all your velvet!! No wastage!!

20130608-005016.jpg

20130608-005022.jpg

Nice?? I think they’re pretty awesome but a little too white ya?? Prolly next time I will use non-white as base color..

20130608-005038.jpg

20130608-005044.jpg

20130608-005051.jpg

Try it now!! Velvet powders are available at qoo10.sg at a very reasonable price! Let me share the link when I’m on PC!

C’ya soooon!!

Rainbow Polka Dotties!!

20130422-233223.jpg

TADAAAA~~~ my cutie lil toe nails!! Hahahahaha!! Finally i can do nail art on my left toe nail!!!! If you can see, the nail is (in fact) pretty much shorter and i think because its growing in a “out of shape” manner, it’s quite challenging to get it done nicely!!

20130422-233238.jpg

Choosing the colors! This is another headache! I cant decide which color to use.. To do a rainbow dotties? Or should i do a pink gradient dotties or blue? or maybe green??

Ahh.. and i finally decided to do a rainbow one because i think it will looks fun and cheery! OH and i must not forget one thing… This nail art was inspired by cutepolish youtube tutorial! It’s a very easy-to-understand tutorial and its really simple!!! You can watch the video HERE and start doing you rainbow dotties!! 😀

20130422-233247.jpg

Looks so 3D without top coat ya?? hahaha!!

20130422-233300.jpg

20130422-233313.jpg

Now this is with a top coat! Look so.. AMAZING! hahaha… But … the more i’m looking at it.. the more i feel like……

20130422-233320.jpg

I’m looking at a frog.. (-___-)||

20130422-233334.jpg

Inspired by..

Good Afternoon everybody!! How’s your Friday?? Today I woke up early and decided to try out a mani that I saw on a nail blog few days back..

20120707-140003.jpg

Ta-daaaa~~~ This is it! What do u think? I think it’s pretty wow! Hahahaa!! Bef I go into details on how to do it.. Let me ask one qn!!

Do u think this will be difficult to do??

20120707-140023.jpg

To be honest, this is a really simple nail art…! The only part that u’ll need to crack ur head about is…

“What color should I use….!!???”

Because u’ll need many colorssss that’s y u need to make sure the colors wun get tooo weird when u’re done!!

So these are the colors I chose.. Mainly China Glaze & OPI polish.. You can check our the colors (code) I used at the end of this post under “Label” or probably read on as I’ll still be naming them anyway..

20120707-140040.jpg

OPI Fly from Nicki Minaj collection as my base color! Of cuz u can go ahead with any colors u like..

Apply your base coat as usual! Nvr skip that!! Thn carry on w base color as per norm.. In here, I apply 2 coats so that it wun look to sheer..

Next, get ur dotting tool ready!! It’s time to dot dot dot dot dot..!

20120707-140047.jpg

Dap ur dotting tool to the color u wish to appear after your base color.. Well, I chose CG’s Happy Go Lucky! A bright cheery yellow.. Start dotting across ur lower nails and it should look similar to above pic..

20120707-140054.jpg

Get ur third color ready, mine was CG’s High Hope! Same thing, dot across ur nails semi over lapping ur 2nd color… Now it should look similar to above pic..

20120707-140108.jpg

Now for the forth color… Same technique.. Repeat till u reached almost the end..

20120707-140134.jpg

When u are at ur last color, dot it and “occupy” the remaining space w the same color.. For my case, I used back my base color FLY. This way it will make the primary color stands out and will not makes it too confusing.. Well at least that’s what I think..

20120707-140158.jpg

Also, while doing, u can either ignore the messy color that was out of ur nails or clean as u do.. Either way works.. But I would prefer to clean it as I do so that it wun be a tedious work when I need to clean up later where the polish are all dry & harden..

20120707-140209.jpg

This is the mess I made at the end of my DIY nail art session!! HAHAHA! Still consider clean I guess… >_<

It’s Decal Time Again!!

Hi all!! It’s decal time again! Im sure water decal is not sth new to u anymore!! I had previously posted 3 posts about my decal nails.. Now this is the latest one i’d just rec’d last night.. This art took mi slightly more time to complete as I’m not very good in painting my nails white!! So pardon my very jagged polish work but love the decal design!!!

20120531-095326.jpg

Make a guess what design it is this time…!?

*drumroll*

20120531-085345.jpg

Tada… My Chinese Painting decal from Mei Mei’s Signature!!!! Super happy with this design! And apparently it went out stock not long after I made my purchase.. thank goodness I din ponder another second else I wun get to have another favorite thing in my stash already!!!

20120531-085644.jpg

20120531-085651.jpg

Pardon, again, for my not very clear photos.. lighting wasnt good, hands shaking, iphone cam resolution wasnt goo enuff.. everything else but not about my fault..! hahahahah!! nah.. just couldnt seems to capture it in the right angle.. So had upload whatever angle i shot to share..

20120531-095240.jpg

(This pic look as if my hand is hvg a bad cramp!!! hahahahaha)

20120531-095233.jpg

I had trim and cut a bit on the decal cuz some parts are too long to fit onto my nails.. and among all, i really love the birdie~~  AIYA!! Should have take a pic of the original packaging to show u before it goes onto my nails.. tsk, ok! next time.. i still have some decal in stock..

Now this one is with flash.. so far do you like it?? I’m so loving it..

20120531-095311.jpg

20120531-095316.jpg

I think every girl out der who love to DIY, should try water decal..! only S$3.50 you can achieve Salon standard!! …. did i just say salon?? erm.. i meant .. shucks! wat do u call a place for mani/pedi??  well.. nvm.. i seriously think water decal is e greatest way to design our nails…! Fast, beautiful and efficient!! Even kids can easily do it but parental guidance pls! Because cutting and trimming is needed..

Well Well.. hope you guys like this design like i do too..  See u next time!
