Orange Floral

Danya is one my new customers! She loves my floral art and here it is in a different colour version! I think this is my first time doing it in orange!

Hope you guys aren’t bored with this nail design yet πŸ˜› I know I’ve posted it alot of times already!

Danya is a great joy to talk to! And she’s very prompt in making deposits and coming on time and also decisive on her nail design! (She actually planned to do Cookie Monster nail art but decided to go with the floral one because she had to attend a wedding in a couple of days!)

I’m not going to list the colours I’ve used, its quite alot so check out the tags at the bottom of the post!

Part 1: Nail Art Lesson!

Finally… a new module!!!! Advancing into NA1! These are my art works after 6 hours last Saturday… What’s missing is the zebra and leopard print ones which I’ve forgotten to take pictures of!

Omg and another assignment to complete for this module as well! Luckily it isn’t too difficult; just 10 tips with nail art πŸ˜€

I really liked how my checkered, cherries and ribbon design looked but I’m going to redo them for my assignment!

Oh… a demoralising thing happened the following morning! I bought 5 new Angel Pro gel polishes from my school and kept them in my bag when I got home. In the middle of the night, my bag dropped from the table (guess it was too heavy!) and one of my favourite pinks that I got broke…

Ah, I do remember my bag dropping during the night but I was too tired to care! I wish I did though, then I could possibly save that bottle by pouring the remains into another bottle. But it was too late in the morning when I found out! Only about 10% was left in the bottle, the rest got into the box in came with and smeared my other polishes too! >;:(

Photobucket

Guess I need to be careful next time :/ Another good reason to buy more polishes ^^

Vintage Wallpaper

I actually did Gelish for Huiyi but my UV lamp broke down after I did 2 coats for her nails so I had to remove everything for her and use a normal polish! I still feel so apologetic to her because she didn’t get what she originally wanted for CNY! 😦

Photobucket

She spotted this old nail art wheel of mine and she wanted the floral art that I’ve done for many times with white stripes at the background. I used OPI Rumple’s Wiggin’ as the base colour with Relvon Red and China Glaze White Out for the flowers, OPI Jade Is The New Black for the leaves! Did the accent nails on her ring and thumb!

Gel Mani: Abstract Accent Floral with Crystals

Did a house call for my boyfriend’s relatives last Friday night (Omg, sorry backtrack time!) and it was kinda fun! Did three people’s hands and feet and my back was aching the entire time because I was sitting on a stool and their coffee table was quite low, lol.

I didn’t take pictures of my bf’s aunts’ nails because they only did one colour; without any designs. One of them also did gelish and she chose Harmony Gelish Make A Difference; a really gorgeous dark pink I would say!

**sorry for the bad quality of photos; these are taken with my iPhone 4! Colours looked super washed out 😦

However, this post is going to be about my bf’s mum’s nails πŸ™‚ She allowed me to do whatever I wanted, as long as there’s floral nail art! I suggested using accent floral nail art with a different colour in the same spectrum. So we ended up using colours from the breast awareness set again! I used Harmony Gelish Take Action and Harmony Gelish Less Talk as bases and added Swarovski crystals of different sizes in ss10 and ss5 on each nail except the floral accent nails.

Her middle finger nail on her right hand broke and she was pretty upset about it because it doesn’t look complete with one short stubby nail!

Hehe next post will be on my last week’s gelish manicure~~ πŸ™‚

When Classic Meets Techno Nail Design

Hey guys!!! So I dug my old digital camera out and finally decided to put it to good use! My family abandoned that camera years ago because we got a DSLR. Because I’m such a noob, I’m still not familiar with the functions and this is the main reason why I’ve not used it for any of my nail swatches yet. The digital camera that I’ll be using from today onwards will be Panasonic DMC-FX10. It’s actually a really old model and it has only about 7 megapixels (I think). At least that is better than my current iPhone 4 that I’ve been using from the start to take pics of my nails. Amazing, isn’t it?

Anyway, let me know if this camera has an improvement to my swatches because if not, I will switch back to using my iPhone 4, lol. I like this digital camera much better because it can zoom in w/o making my pics blurry. But, it doesn’t really have that ‘bright’ factor that I always have in my swatches.

Okay…. back to nails. You should have noticed the weird title of this nail design and yes, I AM NOT THAT CREATIVE in naming all my nail designs πŸ˜› It gets harder and harder after every nail art post, trust me! I am inspired by ClaraH and here’s myΒ renditionΒ of it. πŸ™‚ I’m definitely going to redo this and this time without the accent glitter nails. Also, I think the leaves of my roses are so awkward!! I should have drawn a pair for a rose.

Photobucket

I am using Dior Blue Label as a base for my accent nails, topped with Barry M Blue Glitter. OMG… Barry M Blue Glitter is so densely packed, it is more of aΒ turquoiseΒ fine glitter in a clear base! I did a blue base underneath because I thought most glitter will be sparse and randomly spread out but this one is such a beautiful exception. LOVE! ❀

The base colour on my other nails is Barry M Strawberry Ice-cream, I apologise for the colour difference because no matter how I photograph it, the colour doesn’t show up! :/ It is actually a bubblegum pink.

Roses are drawn with acrylic paint. Other colours used will be listed under the tags section.

Polka Dot with Swirling Roses Nail Design

Hey all! I promised a nail art post so here it is πŸ˜‰ the sun was scorching hot this afternoon when I woke up so hence the super bright pics! ^^

Photobucket

I’m not a very original person so I can’t help it by doing another rose design! I did it by using a different technique and I have to say that it didn’t turn out well. :/ it doesn’t even look like roses anymore, just spots of blobby mess! I definitely need to find a super sharp and thin pointer that I can use for the swirling. My smallest dotting tool was still too big for this.

Polishes that I used are listed at the end of the post under tags. I used acrylic paint with the roses.

Photobucket

I think my right hand turned out better than my left!! The roses looked more proportionate lol.

I hope these designs of mine didn’t bore you to death. I am still experimenting! Haha, recently I learnt yet another technique to draw flowers so I’m gonna try it out very soon! Expect a nail art post this weekend or the next!

Have a lovely day ahead! ❀

Double Accent Blue Floral Nail Design

Hiya! Sorry for the late posting, I went to Universal Studios Singapore today and I’m so so so so tired right now!!! I think I walked for over 12 hours, and I’m really not kidding about that number. The weather is hot as usual, but luckily not a rainy one πŸ˜€ This is actually my second time there and this time I went because of my Dad’s company family event! We ended up walking away with the top prize of the treasure hunt of $100 vouchers because I’m just too smart at giving the correct answers, LOL! (self-praise here, I’m sorry!) Hehe, and we used the vouchers for our fab dinner at the Hard Rock Hotel! The food was meh and it was too overpriced. I think even Botak Jones’ Fish & Chips tasted much better.

Anyway, I’m not sure whether I’m the first to do a double accent nail design… but here it is!!!! πŸ˜€ I love doing floral designs so I decided to duplicate it in a different colour!

Photobucket

I used Essie Lapis Of Luxury on my middle and ring fingers and the rest with Essie Aruba Blue. I did 3 coats for all. Lapis Of Luxury is a beautiful cornflower blue, it isn’t pastel nor a bright; its somewhere in the middle. It is also a little bit streaky. After the second coat, it wasn’t even completely opaque yet. I worn this mani for about 10 hours before it chipped on my index finger :/

As usual, look over to the tags to find out what polishes I used! πŸ˜‰

We caught 2 Betty Boopers today! I like the second one better because she was so much more friendly! (I don’t like how the first BP is touching my dad’s chest, argh!) That’s my mum’s twin sister if you’re wondering who’s the extra lady, lol.

Woody Woodpecker! Look at my oily hair, you guys!

I certainly look like a tourist with that cap on. -_-

Alright so that’s about the photos that I wanna share! We didn’t take alot of photos because we’ve forgotten to bring our dslr :<

Have a lovely Sunday!!
