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! πŸ˜€

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

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 πŸ™‚

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!

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:

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 πŸ™‚ 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 andΒ affordability. I think I’m going back to purchase more πŸ˜€

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!

OPI Ogre The Top Blue V.S. Elianto Dodger Blue

Hello πŸ™‚ Today I have for you another comparison! Last weekend I went to a flea at Iluma and picked up a few OPI’s from Smoochiezz/HazelΒ and Ogre The Top Blue was one of them! When I reached home, I find the shade rather familiar and found out that I have a similar blue in my stash! Swatches are 2 coats with SV top coat.

In terms of colour, Ogre The Top Blue is a little bit darker and muted than Dodger Blue. Β In terms of opacity, there is a big difference. OTTB was opaque in one coat whole DB was abit streaky and slightly sheer but with 2 coats, the problem was solved. Even though both of them are not dupes, I think you can do away with the other if you own either one of these. But in my opinion for the price of the polish, I’d recommend Elianto because it is much more affordable and I don’t have any problems with the brand’s polish in terms of application and formula. However, I still prefer OPI because of the Pro-wide brush πŸ™‚
