It looks kinda uneven here & i know my stem is a little too thick! accident do happens.. haha!… but a top coat will do the trick to make it all even and smooth!

20130811-133328.jpg

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

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!

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.. (-___-)||

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… >_<

My Humble Bee

20120424-135118.jpg

Just like the title.. this two lil bees are my new friends..!! ain’t they cute? probably a little not so perfect.. but im sure practise practise practise will do the trick!

For this nail art, i used mainly China Glaze’s Happy Go Lucky and OPI’s Black Onyx.

Happy Go Lucky is a bright fresh looking yellow. The bright here is not luminous kinda bright so not too worry if it will be too attention seeking. If i were to be more precised, i think this yellow has a teeni weeni bit of orange tone as compared to a true yellow. Just a little! not too much.. As for Black Onyx, like the name, it’s just black polish! haha.. very solid black. just one coat and u can be done.

BASE:

Ok, first thing first.. paint ur nails w base coat (to protect them!) before you apply Happy Go Lucky! In the pic, i used 2 coats for all nails except my BIG toe (3 coats). Then let it dry..

ART:

Get you dotting tool and Black Onyx ready! we are gg to draw our humble bee now! I dot the flying trace on my big toe first (just 3 dots will do) then i continue using my dotting tool to draw an oval shape (bee’s body outline). Within the oval shape, stripe both ends and center with black (so that u will have a black head, a black buttock and a black stripe in the middle)! Now we’re done with the body.

Proceeding to draw the wings now.. Wings are much easier. just draw a letter “m” on the oval shape body and filled it with white polish using your dotting tool. Any white polish is fine, but u probably wouldn’t want it to be too sheer. For my case, i used China Glaze White On White. A very solid white. Other then the white wings, we will need to give our bee an EYE to see the world, to see whr it’s flying to.. So now, dot a white dot on the bee head. (u decide whr’s the head! Just make sure it’s flying in the right direction! HAHAHA!). Now, our humble bee’s body is completed!!

The flying trace.. we’ll just need to create the bee’s trace on our other toes.. u decide how u want your bee to fly.. Just use a dotting tool and black onyx and start dotting the trace..

FINAL:

Now that everything is completed, lets seal it up with a top coat! If you wish, you can also use a microshimmer glitter to beautify it before applying your top coat. i did it this way but the pic is not showing it very well.. LOL!

And.. TA-DAA~~ your humble bee is completed and done! If this post is too hard for u to digest, NO FEAR! Click HERE is see my previous post (video tutorial by cutepolish)..
