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!

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

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!

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!

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

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!! 😀

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..

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

Gift Wrap

Saturday morning.. Just return home from my dental appointment! (it’s now Sunday night tho…!) I decided to do a quick pedi!

Base coat is a must have thing! Hmm I use my Sally Hanson base coat I got from my previous BellaBox, May box i think.. & for the base color, I chose CG’s High Hope.. Wanted to do some art but due to time constraint… I decided to keep it simple!

20120624-185518.jpg

This aint some fanciful design but I like the idea I have initially.. I wanted it to be sth like a gift wrapper!

20120624-185559.jpg

Eh.. But somehow, seems like i’m lacking a lil ‘luck’?? Dono where to start my stroke, I decided to edit my idea.. Shall try out my INM holographic top coat & my new stripe tape!

20120624-185543.jpg

This holo top coat isn’t very holo w juz one coat.. U need at least 2 coat to be able to see bits of shims.. IMO, I feel that CG Golden Enchantment might be better?

Juz moments before I decided to seal my art w my seche top coat, I decided to add glitters along/between my 2 stripe tape!

20120624-185551.jpg

Oh well.. At least the final product is not something I dislike..

20120624-225911.jpg

Looking at my toe, it just reminds mi of the follow type of ribbon.

4 casualties..

Too Too Hot… High Hope… I’m His Coral-Friend… Red Lights Ahead.. Where?

Tempted to compare!

I have 4 similar colours…!!! Am I crazy for this tone or wat!?!! Hahahaha..! Coincidence purchase la!! It’s only when I brought home my CG high hopes thn I realize this amazing finding!

20120228-234833.jpg

Well.. Since I have them, I decided to do a simple comparison! Not too complex as im not a professional nail blogger anyway.. Chey~~ hahaha! (pardon mi! I muz be slpy! Blogging at the hour is a struggle! *yawn*) I took photos of my nails aft applying the every coat..

Names of the polish had been indicated in the photo so I will not be introducing them again.. You can do a google search if you would like to have more details..

Well, applying all these first coat made mi falls in love with Essie almost immediately! It’s so solid ! I think 1 coat is more than enuff! The red looks young and cheery but not childish!! U wun look like one “ah lian” when wearing Too Too Hot! Hahahaha!! (Now I know y Essie is so hot!) Love this new babe!! 2nd in my favorite list is OPI’s latest Holland Collection, Red Lights Ahead… Where?!! Din expect to like this colour tho… I think the color is very very close to Too Too Hot!! Putting both together I would say TTH is a sweeter tone of red (probably not too obvious in my pic) while RLH is more to bright red? And both have a teeni weeni touch of deep orange.. That makes both.. Orangie red.. The common term ppl use to describe this kinda red I guess would be “coral red”…

(Gona turn in now… Shall cont tmr!!!!! Stay tune!! Lol!)

China Glaze High Hope is also another color that got mi so excited to the extend of walking back to the stall to grab one after I see my sis applying it!!!! The eye catching orangie hot pink is definitely a no-regret buy for mi!!! 1 coat is good as well!!!

As compared to these 3, I’m His Coral-Friend seems to hv lose out a bit here.. The lacquer is much ‘thinner’ than the others.. As u can see, juz one coat ain’t enuff; nail tip is still visible.. But it sure is a multipurpose color. LOL! Y I say that?? Cuz its color look so gentle yet so bright.. It seems to be able to bring out that lil naughtiness under your gentle character! Lolx!

What u see above is after applying the 2nd coat.. What do u think??? Not much a diff for Too Too Hot, High Hope & Red Lights Ahead… Where? .. But for Coral-Friend, I believe u now can see that it’s slight thicker and nail tip not that obvious now..

Think I’m gona do Essie Too Too Hot some day soooooon!!
