Tried and… Failed!

Video always look so easy!!! I tried to re-create the look from cutepolish video and it turn out totally failure!!

I need to practice more on how to use dental floss and have more patience in waiting for polish to dry!

Sorry that I have to beautify this pic SOOO MUCH cuz it’s a total nightmare without editing!!! LOLX! Let me show u cutepolish video once I have access on my PC.. Working a post on my iPhone has quite a bit of limitation.. >_<

Sorry! took me soo long to update this post! So here’s the video!!

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!!

20130506-230800.jpg

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!

20130506-230858.jpg

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*

20130506-231839.jpg

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!!!

20130506-232103.jpg

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!

20130506-232927.jpg

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

You can follow cutepolish from HERE (youtube) or HERE (facebook) for great nail art design!!!

UPDATE!! UPDATE!!

20130515-215551.jpg

Finally found time to upload ice cream nails on my fingers!! Yesh…. Yam! Taro! I love it!!! (& hate it at the same time~) it’s making me crave for ice cream with chocolate sauce & sprinkles!!!! Yam ice cream especially!! Argh…

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

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

Liquid Sand sings!

This is ….. my long awaited Mariah Carey Liquid Sand collection!!!! Application is quite tricky! you have to apply thick coat to bring out the sandy feel (IMO), else it will look ugly.20130129-225053.jpg

20130129-230150.jpg

Nice?? i kinda like it! OH btw, see my little pinkie?? That was applied kinda thin-ly thus the color is abit off..

20130129-230145.jpg

This is one coat.

Not very impressive one coat. hmm.. i thought its gonna be a disappointment,..

20130129-230201.jpg

Get Your Number (Index Finger): It’s a cool blue aqua blue marine blue?? Big & Small glitters, bits of holo glitz too! Very bling bling! This blue reminds me of Strepsils Cool thou.

Capture

Can’t Let Go (Middle Finger): Purplish Blue? i like this tone! I read review saying it has medium size hexagon glitter but i think probably cuz mine was a mini, i can’t seems to be able to “dig” out any medium hexagon glitter!!

20130129-230208.jpg

The Impossible (Ring Finger): PINK!! This is my 2nd favorite among the liquid sand collection! Tho it’s nothing too special but it just attracts me like its one of a kind! Like other L.S. collection, this one has glitters, holo glitters too!

Stay The Night (Little Finger): Black with pink glitter! i like this too!!! Man! this collection has too many beautiful colours!!

as you can see, with 2 coats, the “wow-ness” is definitely there…!!!

20130129-230216.jpg

Add a top coat… it’s give you another look!!

This CNY I’m definitely going for liquid sand nails!

Christmas Fingers!!

MERRY CHRISTMASSSS……………….belated!!

Few days back i bought a water decal from Qoo10! wow.. it was hell cheap!! only a dollar plus? definitely less than $2!!! Now it makes me wonder what’s the difference between this and those i bought from meimeisignature which is selling at S$3.50! I must be crazy to buy from meimei again if this works out fine!! I WAS sooo happy until i attempted to use it..

Other than cheap, this water decal is nothing good! WHY?? read on!

  • When two ends touched each other, its so difficult to make them apart!
  • This decal is not like thosel i bought from meimei whereby i can easily position it anywhere i want as long as my nails are wet! This cheap decal basically stick on once it touches your nails unless u dip your whole finger into the bowl/cup of water while positioning it!! (so dumb right!?) by then i think u might have crumpled fingers.
  • This decal will LAK SEK (color will run)! When u apply top coat over it, dun go over and over and over again, u will soon realise ur santa has shaved his beard!!!

By the time I’m done with my nails, i wasted 4-5 decals….. -_____-

Mei Mei !!! i was wrong about your decal! Though they are more costly, still affordable actually, but at least quality is guaranteed!!! i know every decal will be put in good use when i do my nails! Seriously I’m not gona buy decal from elsewhere but again!! Mei Mei Signature will be my only option for water decal!

20121230-001014.jpg

So these are my little red nails for Christmas! The Spy Who Loved Me from OPI Skyfall 007 collection! I kinda like this red!! very nice and cheery! It’s bright red with gold shimmers. I’m not sure if there are some % of red shimmer but it’s already enough to impress me!

Other than The Spy Who Loved Me, i also used A-England’s Merlin! Silver glitters, glitters with irregular shape i believe! it’s quite “opaque” considering it for a layering top coat. This is just one coat of Merlin with some touch up to the side of the nails..

20121230-001020.jpg

My poor santa with 2 strends is beard shaved! Lucky still able to touch up the red polish..

20121230-001026.jpg

*without flash*

20121230-001032.jpg

*without flash* Seche top coat never fails to make me happy!

20121230-001040.jpg

A closer view of the shimmer.. but probably a good camera can do a better job! hahahahaha!!

Have a good evening!

Skyfall 007

I’m Bond, James Bond! this is the signature line i always recall when anyone mention 007! But now…. i have new thing to link with 007! OPI latest collection Skyfall 007! The whole collection is pretty awesome!! But with my limit cash flow, i decided to just get the few that i think is LOVE at first sight for mi!

And so.. i brought home the skyfall 007 mini set and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service!20121104-205116.jpg20121104-205155.jpg

Colours in the mini set are namely: (from left to right)

HL D07 Golden Eye (Gold)

HL D08 The Spy Who Loved Me (Red)

HL D18 The World Is Not Enough (Rosy Silver)

HL D17 Live And Let Die (Green)

20121104-205400.jpg20121104-205351.jpg

Pretty??? Still can’t tell?? Continue to read then..

20121104-210029.jpg

So here.. i tried all colors i have with just one coat! My opinion on this ONE coat..?

HL D16 On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (Thumb): Wow cool!!! almost loved it immediately!!  so y i did not? Cuz its kinda sheer at first coat and i prefer opaque colour! but the colour is definately amazing!

It’s a bling bling greyish blue and with just one coat u can see the shimmers in it. Yellow (Gold?).. Blue.. Green.. Purplish Pink.. and did i see a lil teeny weeny bit of orangy!??  IMO, i feel that the shimmer in it is a lil similar to OPI Simmer & Shimmer – just that Simmer & Shimmer is glitters instead of shimmer?? hmm… 2 – 3 coats and u are good to go with the opaque coverage!

HL D07 Golden Eye (Index Finger): A Gold Glitter with a hint of red! it’s a very sheer color!! can hardly see the gold but i think it will be a nice if i decided to go light. Other than that, you prolly can consider to keep it as top coat?? well.. i don’t know..

HL D08 The Spy Who Loved Me (Middle Finger): Amazing RED!! This is my another love at first sight!! This! i really fall in love with it.. i think i just can’t resist RED!! LOL!

This red is a daring red! bright red!! dangerous red!!! Amazing Red with a lil of gold shimmer enhancing its beauty! Ooh-la-la!

HL D18 The World Is Not Enough (Ring Finger): A similar concept as On Her Majesty’s Secret Service but this one is more to purple colour~ Greyish Purple with pink/gold shimmer..

HL D17 Live And Let Die (Little Finger): Only 2 words for this.. oh no no! is 3 words! ..nope! not i love you! its.. Shimmering Blacken Green! SUPER OPAQUE~ one coat is all u need!!

20121104-210046.jpg

And now this is the 2 coats look of the polish, except Golden Eye (3 coats).

20121104-210053.jpg

Chances is that i might get the regular size of The Spy Who Loved Me!!!! <3<3<3

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!!

20121024-084714.jpg

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

20121024-084804.jpg

Hope you like my moo moo cow! 🙂

A-England Promo!!

I cant explain the happiness on my face when i see this “envelope”!!! I’m totally crazy~!!!!

Yes~!! It’s my A-England direct from UK!!!!! 2 weeks.. it took about 2 weeks to come to me~ These are the colors i grabbed during their biggest promo ever! Too bad if you had missed it!! But it’s definitely worth waiting for the next one!!!!

I did a quick job on my mom’s finger and… can u see something not right?? ok probably you cant… see my mom’s index and middle finger?? you would think both are Galahad ya?? NO! actually…. Only index is galahad!! Middle is OPI FLY~~ very similar.. BUT there’s still difference!!OPI Fly is a brighter green whereas A-England Galahad is creamer milker tone of green.. Fly would need 2 coats to go but Galahad is good to go in just 1 coat~!!

I’m really falling for A-England!!
