Have some ice cream?

Heeelloooo! Today, I’m so excited to share with you a cute polish that was inspired by Cutepolish!

Do you prefer to view the video first!!? i think the video is very clear and she made steps so simple to achieve!!

So after watching her video, i started to dig out all my tools and colours! This time round, i used only 1 nail polish colour and the rest are nail paint (is this the term used??)! I nearly forgot i’d bought this nail paint quite some time back in 2012! So, now we can start!!

Like what was advised, a based coat is a must to protect your nails! after base coat, i applied OPI’s Sparrow me The Drama (Pirates of the Caribbean Collection)! This is the lightest pink i have in my stash!

Ain’t that bad.. still looks like my strawberry ice cream after my matt top coat! Got my matt top coat from Etude House (it was about S$10 i think..) Just a reasonable coat and you can see you ice cream foaming! LOL~ BTW, does top coat affects the colour? Because i feels that this pink looks lighter after i applied my matt top coat. It looks much darker in the bottle.. *ponder*

So with my nail paint, i start to dot the chocolate sauce like how cute polish does it! Not that bad.. this nail paint are pretty opaque and dries quite fast..! Although my chocolate sauce ain’t very good looking but i think my sprinkles looks worst! hahahaha!!!

But with the top coat, A GOOD TOP COAT, it looks much better now! At least the chocolate sauce looks more like a chocolate sauce now – tho the sprinkles din look any better! hahaha!

Looking from far, i think it’s great!!! hahahahaha!! Try to do your chocolate sauce today and start admiring them!

Hope u guys like my taro ice cream too!! 😀

Moo Moo Moootivation!

Mooooo~~~ Finally a nail art post!!

Been wanting to do up a nail art post but haven’t really got time for one.. Too busy at work and too tired to concentrate on painting a good one!

It’s always good to look around for inspiration! And happen so that I saw this cow art on YouTube and Instagram! So I decide to combine both into one and do it my way!!!

Below is the one i saw on Instagram – by posh_n_sparkle. I’m not too sure if it is 100% by her because “rumour” has it that she steals other’s pic.. quite a few of her pic actually belongs to another person and mostly by @youngwildandpolished!! Shall share with you more about this next time.

Below is what i found on YouTube.. A cow nail art by Creativenailart! You can visit her BLOG to see MORE tooooo!

Both are so nice right?? Well after “studing” both, i did a SMALL revision of it and came up with my own Moo Moo Art!

Below polish i used!

So first of all…… Base coat! The base coat I use here is by Seche! Ridge filling base coat.. It gives a sheer pearl white appearance.. Sorry that I din get to picture it but u can try “visualizing” it with below pic..! Hee!!

For base color, I choose A-England’s Morgan Le Fay instead of regular white polish because i wanted one atas (In Singlish, atas means “high class” – the word is derived from the malay word meaning “upstairs”) cow! Hahahaha!! I used about 3-4 coats to cover up my nail tip (line). Above pic is prolly only 2 coats – can’t remember.. =X i mentioned earlier about ridge filling base coat? It looks similar to Morgan Le Fay but minus off the bling bling look..)

Next, the cow patch!! This is easier then leopard prints IMO! I just grabbed my dotting tool & black onyx and started drawing the patches..!

But do note that, unlike leopard or zebra, cow prints are more of big irregular “round” patch. If u din paint it as “round” patch, your cow might turn out looking like something else…. erm, don’t get it?? Nevermind, see below pic and tell me, which one looks more like a cow prints???

i think the left side one looks more like cow! LOL, ok, i know i know.. enough of cow prints debates… !!!..

So here’s my completed patch..

20121024-084721.jpg

Satisfied! Shall proceed with my moo moo face!!

20121024-084731.jpg

For my moo moo face, i used OPI’s Sparrow Me The Drama. Draw the head of a heart, BIG HEAD and put 2 long dots with ur dotting tool as its nostril! remember to dot ur moo moo eyes!!

If you like, you can add small prints on its head too…

20121024-084742.jpg

And now… I’m done with my left hand…! and right hand??

20121024-084752.jpg

No sweat toooo! just that took a wrong dotting tool and my cow got bigger eyes on my right hand.. =X

Hope you like my moo moo cow! 🙂

Mid Night

i can’t believe im blogging now! but.. yes i am..

Just did my toe nails.. finally removed my not very leopard prings’ leopard prings! oh well.. haha! still need MORE IMPROVEMENT!! i think i will need a real dotting tool SOON! and i think i found a little interest here.. hee!

For this “not-so-leopard-prings” print, i had used L.A.Girl Matte Red (NL544) as base color, The Face Shop Gold lacquer (can’t recall the number) as the spot and an ‘unknow’ thin brush black lacquer as spot outline.. Dun ask mi how i get the print.. as u can see… its not very successful yet! i think u can try it out urself and u mite do btr!! ^__^ In case u are wondering y my matte color is so shinning, i used top coat! hahah! i used a matte red is not because i want a matter finish! but because tt’s the only RED i have at tt moment! lolx!

Anyway, had bid goodbye to my leopard prings!! now say HI to my Crackle Toe!! This is much simpler!! Had used 2 base color here… OPI’s Planks A Lot (NL P16) and Sparrow Me The drama (NL P15), both are POC series! And of cuz MAIN STAR is my Crackle Overcoat (02-Vintage Violet) from Sally Hansen! As my Crackle Overcoat is purple, so i decided to paint my big toe in PINK so that it can contrast my Crackle color! did it went well?? I think S.H.’s crackle Overcoat is still not available here.. or at least i have yet to seen one.. color not bad ya~?
