Flight of a Bumblebee

Danya wanted a simple design this time… a bee taking flight! This reminds me of a band song that I’ve played before (hence the title!) For music enthusiasts out there, I bet you know which song I’m referring to!!

The base colours is done with OPI What’s With The Cattitude and acrylic paint for the rest of the art!

Sorry about the colour contrast… my digital camera got wonky and I had to use my iPhone 4! :(

Adventure Time!

Danya gave me a very good challenge!! She’s a big fan of Adventure Time cartoons and she wanted Beemo (robot/game console), Princess Bubblegum (a princess, lol), Finn (the human with long blonde hair hidden in his suit), Jake (Finn’s transformation dog) and Ice King (he’s evil!)

Since I’ve no idea what is the cartoon all about, I searched about them on Google! The plot is quite interesting, I think I might watch it soon! :D

I referenced from Google pics and Chalkboard Nails take on them!

Photobucket

Okay I already forgotten what colours I used so here’s the list that I can remember… Btw some colours are mixed from acrylic paint :)

Beemo: OPI Mermaid’s Tears
Princess BubbleGum: Barry M Strawberry Ice-cream and OPI Indi-a Mood For Love
Finn: OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Ogre The Top Blue
Jake: China Glaze Papaya Punch
Ice King: OPI Alpine Snow, OPI What’s With The Cattitude

I’m pretty satisfied on how these turn out! Too cute for words! Especially Beemo and Ice King, alot of details!

Blue Lace Trimmings

Hwee Ping wanted something blue for her nails to match her dress for a wedding dinner! She ended up picking a lace trim design + floral on my nail art wheel!

I suggested only doing it on her thumbs and ring fingers and keep the rest simple!

Photobucket

I used OPI Dating A Royal and OPI What’s With The Cattitude and the rest if the art done with acrylic paint!

(I broke my OPI Dating A Royal after I was done with her mani D: It kinda flew off my desk, lol)

Self-study session: Slant Double French

Had self-study sessions last week and worked on Miao Xian!

I finally got OPI colours that is approved by the school for exams; what I’ve used is OPI Mod About You and OPI Big Apple Red. The pink was sooo streaky!!! I had to apply a thicker coat to cover the bald spots. But the problem is that it causes the entire nail to be too thick and I might have problems doing French later on :(

Miao Xian also requested for this design and show me a photo from the net:

And here’s what I did for her! I forgot to take pics and she kindly sent me :D I used OPI Ogre The Top Blue, OPI What’s With The Cattitude and OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees!

Zebra Attitude

This customer of mine; Chen Li has really long nail beds and nails!!!!! Sigh, I wish my nails were her length! Lengths like these are perfect for nail art and this is what she chose!

Before coming to my place, she told me she wanted zebra print but was unsure on what base colour to choose. Since she loves blue, I suggested using alternate base colours and alternate zebra print for that funky look!

Photobucket

She chose Essie Aruba Blue and OPI What’s With The Cattitude? as the base colours and the art was all done with striper brushes. I added the finishing touch by adding silver glitter along the spaces; I love how glitter glams up the look!

Last picture of the nails of both best friends! :D I love how they squealed a little when they left my place because they love their nails! Its times like these that I feel that going into nails is the best choice for me :’)

Rainbow Polka Dot Nail Design

Hello all! So I just want to share my rainbow mani with you! I did this design to one of my customers last week and I’m so in love with it that I’ve decided to do it today! At first I thought the whole skittles/rainbow mani was kinda childish but I changed my mind completely! The bright punch of colours really makes me happy just by looking at it! :D And the best part of this mani is that it never gets old!

As usual, names of all polishes used are at the tags section at the bottom of the post! ^^

Scallop Hem French Tip Nail Design

Hello guys!!! Omg I caught Johnny English today with my friends and it was so hilarious!!!!!! Especially when I have a cousin that looks just like Rowan Atkinson! I kid you not, really! So I was actually imagining those scenes in the movie as if my cousin was doing that, lol. Okay, I know I’m weird and not funny lol.

So today I have a nail design for you that was inspired by: Robinmosesnailart in Youtube!

I like her videos ALOT! She’s so cheerful and funny and she’s always laughing with her clients or herself in her videos! I did my own spin on that design so I hope you like it!

Anyone curious about that beautiful periwinkle shade that I used for my half french? That one is a new line by Beadstreet in Singapore called Michelle Nail Colour and its name is M32. I wish they did name their polishes, because their colours are really lovely! I got these at Cineleisure :) its 2 for $4! (I own 6 of them and I love love love them! Will feature each of them next week!)

The formula was really good! I had no streaking whatsoever and it was fully opaque in one coat! MARVELOUS! I am surprised, considering that this is a Singapore brand of nail polish. This definitely did not disappoint! Absolutely much better than The Face Shop in terms of quality and affordability. I think I’m going back to purchase more :D

Even though I am not loving the cheap silver nail caps, I do recommend this if you’re looking for affordable and yet quality nail polishes. I like nail polishes from Elianto too!

Dark Blue Floral Nail Design

Hello everyone! I’ve been loving my week so far… because I finally received my package of nail goodies from ASOS!!!! Woohoooooo it’s my first Barry M Nail Paints and Models Own and I love them!!! Unfortunately, ASOS has stopped shipping these to SG anymore and it makes me regret not buying more, lol.

Anyway I cannot stop raving about Barry M and Models Own! I did swatch all of them on my colour wheels and they’re surprisingly pigmented and creamy! Most of them are one-coaters which is kinda awesome! Well, at least I could still purchase Barry M from their website because its £8 for international shipping. I think Models Own charges more on their website (£20) so its kinda almost impossible to own more Models Own because of their hefty shipping! :(

Photobucket

So here we are… another floral design!! I know you might be probably sick with these already but I think they’re so cute and easy to do! I’m intending to play around with a variety of base colours for this type of design! I used Barry M Cobalt Blue for my base and its gorgeous!!!! It’s a beautiful cobalt blue (hence the name!) , it isn’t as bright or dark; just somewhere in the middle. I love the brushes as well, it is bigger than China Glazes and smaller than OPIs and they’re very easy to work with!

So I’ll be working tonight and tomorrow night at Clarke Quay from 6-11pm selling OPI nail polish! Prices start from $10-$14 so you might wanna come down and take a look! I’m not sure whether any CG are displayed so I’ll let you guys know on my twitter! Also I’m not sure where the booth will be because it’s a roadshow/bazaar thingy so keep a look out on my twitter for more updates! Let me know if you’re coming down, I’d love to meet you! ^^

Gumdrop Accent For Pink Wednesday!

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!

Photobucket

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
