Gel Mani: Royal Blood

Hello everyone! I named this set of manicure Royal Blood because I’ve always thought purple is associated with the royal family because purple is a rather sophisticated colour! And… purple is also my favourite ^^

I used Artistic Colour Gloss Fly on the rest of my nails and Artistic Colour Gloss Muse on my accent nails. Muse is a rather funny colour. It’s a light pinkish purple in the bottle but after it cures, it changes it’s colour to a pale greenish lilac. Sounds weird but it’s true! It’s kinda like Princess Tiara from Hand & Harmony which I also own! Lol I ought to slap myself cuz I bought two colours that are almost identical, sigh! I added crystals and a large pearl bead which is unfortunately off-center -.-

Also, I realised that my pinky nail grows the fastest after doing gelish on myself so many times. Weird…

OPI Princesses Rule! & Nubar Black Polka Dot

Hello all! My nails look totally horrible in camera 😦 They don’t really look that bad actually… T-T I am still moisturizing my hands with cuticle oil and hand cream so I hope all that dryness gets better!

Photobucket

I’m back to polish again and I have Nubar Black Polka Dot layered over OPI Princesses Rule! I love how PR is a girly colour but yet it teams up well with BPD 🙂

Hope you all are having a good day! 🙂 I’m addicted to Temple Run, who is?

OPI A-Taupe The Space Needle

I just trolled Youtube on my favourite nail art gurus and I have a few nail art designs that I wanna try out!!!!!! 😀 Can’t wait to get my paint out and start doing nail art again 🙂 I removed my gelish manicure of about 6 days and I couldn’t wait to get my nails painted again!

Yesterday was such a close shave! I almost dropped my UV lamp but my pinkie saved it and it broke -.- looks like my left hand will be disappearing for awhile :/

OPI A-Taupe The Space Needle, 2 coats. Hmm, I have no idea how to describe this. It kinda looks like fresh mud though, the one that dries up under my shoes after a rainy day. It’s like a yellow-toned olive. (I’m not even sure whether such colour exists.) I really dislike the name of this one. What does it even mean?? Can someone decipher it for me please? :/

To be honest with you, I’m disappointed at what OPI has in store for us for Fall. So many repeated colours and only a few gems in that collection, namely this one and Uh-Oh Roll Down The Window.

I’ve already worn this colour thrice as a full mani! So that kinda says how much I like this weird colour, lol!

Glitter Bomb Zebra Print Nail Design

Good afternoon, ladies and maybe some gentleman! ^^ Tonight’s my cousin’s wedding dinner and I thought I might do something funky with my nails!

This is the source of my inspiration, Nail Up! from the July issue! Look at the price on that set of nails, 9760 Yen!!!! That’s like close to SGD$158 just for this set. So overpriced! So today I am going to teach you how to do this set for so much less! 🙂

Photobucket

1. So the first step is to choose your glitters to work with! You don’t really have the follow the glitters I used, you can totally make it your own by using what you have. I’ve used Barry M Green Glitter, Barry M Blue Glitter, Barry M Red Glitter, OPI Excuse Moi!, Nubar Petunia Sparkles.

2. Decide on how you want your glitters to be placed, make sure that they’re kinda random and all over the place. Do 2 coats of them. I kinda left a tiny gap between my cuticle area and my nails, just like the inspiration picture.

3. After your glitters are dry, I put a coat of China Glaze Shooting Stars just to blend in the colours together. Add a top coat to make it smooth before the nail art.

4. Draw black stripes using a thin brush or a nail art striper.

5. Add rhinestones and a top coat and TA-DAH you’re done!

This is super shiny in real life!!!

Two Toned Blue Leopard Print Design

Hey guys, sorry for missing in action for a few days! I was down with the flu and I didn’t feel like posting :/ I am also busy with schoolwork, mostly tutorials! Projects are on their way and I guess I’ll be real busy soon again!

Anyway, because I felt like I owe you readers some interesting read, I did my favourite nail art; leopard print! ^^

Photobucket

As usual, the names of the nail polishes are avaliable at the bottom of the post, at the tags section!

P.S. My 50 subscriber giveaway is ending this week!!!!! Do send in your entries by 5th November at 10PM local time! I will be giving away 9 polishes! 😀

Barry M Bright Purple & OPI Divine Swine

It seems like it will take at least 2 more months before my nails on my left looks pretty decent. 😡 I just chipped my pointer finger at the side and now it looks distorted :/

Anyway, my classmates and I took part in a captain ball competition organised by my school and we won!!!!!! We played 5 games with 5 other teams and we won every match! OMG HOW AWESOME ARE WE??? Hahahaha, I wasn’t expecting it though because all we wanted was to have fun! We won $250 worth of vouchers yayyyyy!!!

Photobucket

So my NOTD was something bright and in your face! I layered OPI Divine Swine over Barry M Bright Purple. I’d never ever put glitter on my bare nails unless it was very dense. And I can’t explain how much I love the OPI Muppets collection! I’m only expressing my love for the glitter side because the reds wasn’t that exciting.

OPI Divine Swine has large silver hexagon glitter with small purple glitter in a clear base. I like that the large hexagon glitter was a silver instead of a matching purple! Barry M Bright Purple was such a complement to that glitter! The colours matches so perfectly!

I actually zonked out when I reached home and slept for 4 hours straight! I never knew that playing 5 games of captain ball straight can tire me out so badly! It’s almost 1AM now and I have to get up at 7.30AM later for class. Looks like I won’t get anymore sleep tonight T-T

China Glaze Skyscraper

AH! Finally, a new post!!! Today’s my last day of working full-time at Milly’s since I’m starting school on Monday but I’ll still be there every Friday and Saturday! 😀 Tonight’s finally the night that I can pamper myself by doing a full manicure and also work on my selling post! 🙂

Photobucket

China Glaze Skyscraper is an indigo jelly with silver glitter. Very pretty but the removal part sucks big time though, I felt like my nails are about to break at the force I’m releasing. My nails are rather weak now after removing my gelish and two of my nails broke. Now my right hand is looking good but my left hand isn’t! (I wish it was the other way round cus I only take photo of my nails on my left!!)
