RWBY

Hello all!

I'm not really feeling the other Halloween manis so here's another anime inspired mani instead!

I've been meaning to watch this anime for some time now since my bf was talking about it. It's an English animation with awesome battle scenes and although each episode is only 15 minutes long, it's freaking awesome!

So, this desogn was inspired by the monsters in the anime called grimm. I couldn't really get a clear image of them from the anime so i asked mr. Google. 😁

I found illustrations of the grimm on deviant art. (Pic at the bottom of the post)

I think this is quite good work considering I'm still a noob at acrylic paint. Check it out!

See you guys nect time!
Cheers!

Casper The Friendly Ghost

Hey guys!

I finally painted the right theme for the right day! Today's theme is ghost and guess who I picked as my muse!

Casper the friendly ghost...(did you just sing that sentence?)

I got the proportions wrong again but I think this is my best work using acrylic paint thus far! 😆

Enjoy! Cheers!

Monsters, Bats & Anime

Hello all!

Halloween is drawing near and here I am behind on my nail art challenge...and also working overtime but enough about that!

So I have  recently completed watching seasons 1 and 2 of the anime, Rosario Vampire. There is still cute and funny bat that narrates the first season and I just thought that I had to paint it and as luck may have it that the challenge needed a monster XD

So here's Kou-chan the bat! (Photos at the bottom of the post)

The base is Australis Peek-a-boo which is a nice creme violet. The design was painted on with acrylic paint.

That's it for this week! Stay tunes for more!
Cheers!

Halloween Challenge

Elo all!

So this year I have decided to yet again join another Halloween Challenge! Although...I am a couple of posts late =S

Here are the manis for the first 2 days!

Day 1 - Pumpkins
Day 3 - Skulls & Bones
(Photos at the bottom of the post)

The pumpkin nail art is inspired by Eva @coewless (instagram) from Coewless Nail Polish Blog She does really mind blowing nail arts! Love her!

The skulls and bones design was something I've been waiting to try for a while now. The base is my favourite black polish from the Faceshop and the design is drawn with acrylic paint.

My HK Girl Top Coat became gooey so I used my Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat instead. There was some serious shrinkage going on but I'll leave that for another post.

That's it for this post!
Cheers!

Wedding Dinner Nails

Hey guys!

So...I went for my cousin's wedding last night and of course I wouldn't go with naked nails!

Matching my dress which was red with black lace around the waist, I went for a nice simple design using Bundle Monster stamping plates.

(Photo at the bottom of the post)

I used Faceshop's black polish to stamp on a rose design onto OPI Big Apple Red.

My bf decided to call this mani Roselle. 😂

I still had to 'paint-by-numbers' cause the black polish doesn't come out opaque after being stamped. All in all still pretty!

Hope you like it!
Cheers!

Fashion Inspired Dots

Hello!

There are a lot of nail artist out there that use fashion as an inspiration for nail art designs. One of my favorite  nail artists is Taryn from Miss LadyFinger. Go check her and her beautiful nail designs out.

For this post, I chose my new Fossil zip clutch which I adore! It's a really cute wallet in shade of coral with black polkadots on it. (Photos can be found at the bottom of the post)

I used Essie's Tart Deco for the base which has become one of my favorite coral polishes and my (cannot love without) black polish from The Faceshop for the dots.

This is also my first time using a lightbox. I read one of articles of NailIt mag and they had instructions on how to DIY your own lightbox. Don't get me wrong...I haven't built it yet. Just so happened that my bf had one and I was in the mood. 😛

It was pretty fun playing around with it. Hopefully I get to making one soon. Anyways...enjoy and see you next time.

Cheers!

Laval meets Nail Vinyls

Hi all!

I just downloaded the Blogger app on my phone is hopes that I blog more often. Especially since all the photoa are on my phone.

Today's post is a swatch of a UK brand - Laval. My parents recently returned from holiday and got me a few souvenirs! Among the colours, I found this shade really pretty! (Using the blogger app, all photos will be at the bottom of the post, sorry for the inconvenience)

Laval's Blue Lightning is a really sheer blue shimmer polish and when I say sheer I mean really sheer. Even with 3 - 4 coats, I could still see the base of my nails. Never the less, a beautiful colour it is.

After realising it's name, I took it upon myself to have a little fun with some of Teismom's nail vinyls.

Using the lightning vinyl and topping it off with a coat of Faceshop's black polish...blue lightning it became!

Oh the pun...ba dum tsst (do ignore my lame ness)

That's it for this post! Hopefully I get used to this app so I can blog better.

Cheers!
