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!

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 Β£8 for international shipping. I think Models Own charges more on their website (Β£20) so its kinda almost impossible to own more Models Own because of their hefty shipping! 😦

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜₯

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 πŸ˜€

Cupcake Sprinkles Nail Design

Another cupcake design which might be really common around blogs lately. I realized I love doing my designs way past midnight and then waking up in the morning with pretty nails, lol! But then usually they don’t last long because this design is too girly and cute for me (my nails are bare now, btw)

These are not my best… I’m only using a toothpick and a dotting tool. I really need to start using my acrylic paint because it’s starting to collect dust at the corner of my table -_-

Photobucket

Haha I’m not listing down all the polishes used, just look over at the tags! I hope I did list them all down!

MAC Quite Cute Spring 2011 Collection: Nail Lacquers Swatches, Comparisons & Review

Photobucket

I wasn’t even expecting MAC’s Spring 2011 collection at my local MAC counter so early! 3 days ago, I popped by Tangs Plaza and was surprised that the whole collection was on display. So as usual, I got sucked into buying all the nail polishes. Pastels are one of my weakness in nail polishes and since these are limited edition, it was a perfect excuse to buy them!

From left: Ice Cream Cake, Little Girl Type, Mischievous Mint

I was kinda disappointed because this is a Quite Cute collection but the packaging wasn’t cute. I’d treasure my polishes even more if the packaging was even more ‘loud’ like maybe a pastel graffiti design! Anyway… let’s get on to the swatches!

Ice Cream Cake is a blue-based pastel pink, my favourite! Very pretty, reminds me of Barbie and cotton candy! The shade is not that unique but I couldn’t find a similar shade in my stash. It is kinda like a cross between OPI Sparrow Me The Drama and OPI Shorts Story.

Little Girl Type is a blue-based pale pastel lavender. I’m not sure what I am going to associate this colour with but… the name of this polish is W.E.I.R.D. Little Girl Type?? What does that even mean? It’ll be creepy if men started saying ‘little girls are my type’ hahaha! OPI Rumples Wigglin’ is pretty similar except that it has a slightly darker tone.
(sorry, typo in the swatch picture!!)

Mischievous Mint is a pale pastel mint. Again, I can’t think of anything that is cute and minty at the same time… maybe a mint ice cream?? A polish similar to this would be China Glaze Re-fresh Mint but the latter seems to be much lighter in comparison! Mischievous Mint is leaning more to jade green than a minty colour as compared to Re-fresh Mint!

Overall, these shades aren’t that unique but I think Ice Cream Cake deserves the attention in this collection because there is no close dupes! The brushes really suck in all of these, hence the messy swatches! I deeply apologise for that but the brush bristles were at fault too! Some of the bristles are sprayed out in different directions so it was kinda hard to do a decent swatch. The formula of these were alright, very thick, creamy and pigmented. All of my swatches are two coats, no top coat.

I hope this was helpful! πŸ™‚

(I need to get more polish remover, I’m running out of them yikes!)

I’m on a roll

Opps I seem to be crazy about nail polishes recently! Another haul πŸ™‚

Delayed Lush Haul! Why is it delayed? Watch my video~ πŸ˜€
