Hey guys! So this is what I came up with for this week’s Pink Wednesday! Sorry I posted this a little late because I wasn’t home till midnight! :P
Cute ladybugs for summer! Instead of the usual red, I did it in pink to fit today’s theme. I actually googled to see whether pink ladybugs exist and they do! YAY! OPI Shanghai Shimmer is the base for this one and its gorgeous~ it is a mauve pink with lime green shimmer in it. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Again, my pics suck because the fab shimmer doesn’t show :( Hover to the tags so see what other polishes I used!
This was fairly simple to do, I just have to keep dotting :) I got the idea from cutepolish’s tutorial!
Hello lovelies! It’s Wednesday again! I can’t believe that time passes by so quickly. I’m currently in the middle of my exam and I have two more papers to go! I seriously cannot wait till Friday!! I’m gonna take out all my nail art tools and accessories and start doing a proper nail art design :)
Anyway, yesterday morning my pet hamster; Random passed away. :( we buried him near a tree beside our house. Sometimes I come home thinking that he will still be there but in actual fact, he isn’t anymore. I am missing him and I miss the times where I shout his name out loud and jolt him from his sleep :’(
Okay, back to polish!! On Wednesdays we wear pink and I picked OPI I’m Indi-A Mood For Love. It does sounds like I’m In A Mood For Love. I love the word pun!!!! Thumbs up for OPI for the wackiest names. I giggled to myself once I figured out the hidden meaning, lol!
OPI I’m Indi-A Mood For Love is a beautiful dark pink with a touch of magenta in it. I love this one. Its looks cool on my skin tone and I really like it!
As the title suggests, I did an gumdrop accent nail on my ring finger with lots of random dots of different colours! They really look like candies and I thought of gumdrops! Okay… now they look more like those Willy Wonka Gobstoppers, haha! I drew a white heart (in case you can’t tell…) and decorated the borders with gold beads. I was debating on whether to choose silver beads or gold ones and I’m glad I went with the gold. Gold complements white much better :D
Here’s my lefty:
Please refer to the tags for polishes used if you’re interested! I’ll finish up doing any requests/tutorials hopefully by this weekend! <3
Hello everyone!!! It’s a rainy day in Singapore this afternoon and luckily I took pics of my mani yesterday where it was bright and sunny, yay!
I have another leopard design again because I think that it is the easiest to do after dots. Haha! Forgive me for the countless leopard designs, unless you can give me an great idea for my next one! ^^
I have a little tip for yellowish finger nails! Because I did a side-swipe on my index, middle and ring fingers, I didn’t want the yellowish tint of my fingernails to show (eek!!). So I did a coat of Seche Rose on my nails and then use Essie Tangerine to do a side-swipe. It definitely helps in hiding the yellowish tint, and giving it a healthy glow! Now nobody will know that you actually have yellow-orangey nails underneath a lovely mani :)
I came across a nail blog (sorry, I’ve forgotten whose is it!) and she described it as ‘a dot within a dot’. I think that was pretty cute! She also included a picture tutorial. I ended up doing the ‘dot within a dot’ design on my pinkie and thumb. A very bizarre combination of leopard prints and abstract nail art but hey, I make it work didn’t it? :P
LOBSTER HANDS ALERT!!!!! LOL. I fail at taking photos of my right hand :/
Anyway, My cuticles look so alive now! I went bareless last night and slapped on lots of Lush Lemony Flutter and pushed my cuticles back and TA-DAHHHHHHH clean and moisturized cuticles! I’m still left with quite alot of that stuff and its expiring this coming December :( how I wish good stuff last forever… hehe!
My boyfriend got me a hoodie from Uniqlo yesterday ;) The material is so stretchy, smooth and soft and I love it! Hehe it’s also the first time he bought clothes for me so I’M SOOO HAPPY!!! I’m going to bring that hoodie to Tioman for diving tonight, in case it’s chilly over there! Don’t worry, I still have posts scheduled for the weekend for you!! ^^
This nail design is inspired by a Youtube nail tutorial by a really awesome nail guru, Raquel :) I really love her designs and her tutorials are so easy to follow! Her nails doesn’t get stained even when she does her nails all the time. I’m jealous! And her nails are so long and strong too! I can never grow my nails that long :/
Anyway, here’s her video on how to do it!
I changed the color of the border into silver instead because I think there’s too much bronze/brown/gold on the design so the silver glitter would stand out better. I only did 2 colour blocks with prints instead of doing all three. Again, I think there’s too much leopard print going on so I omitted doing it on the bronze section.
And here’s my left hand for the curious people, hahaha!
Okay the only bad thing about going to diving is that I’ll be back with peeling and broken nails :(
Hey guys, its a lovely Sunday! No rain and the air isn’t that humid ;) I wanted to buy Chanel’s Morning Rose a few days back but it was OOS! :( Singaporean readers, let me know if you manage to find Morning Rose ok??
Weekends are always great for creative nail designs! I always have the inspiration to do something at night haha. I’ve been wanting to do a half-moon mani and a leopard print for ages!!! So I decided to combine the two together and this is the result! I like how the seafoam blue-grey compliments the gold :) Also, I think I need to get bigger rhinestones of a better quality because I’m kinda sick of the one I own. I did the half-moon freehand so it might look abit lopsided :/ I should have used the reinforcement rings idea to do a half-moon mani!
China Glaze Sea Spray
OPI Hot & Spicy
Art Deco Gold Glitter
Amuse Nail Art Pen – Black
Art Club Nail Art Lacquer – Black
Anyway, I’m lovin’ leopard prints these days and I’m going to experiment with more leopard print designs! I like the fact that they’re so effortless to do but yet gorgeous!
