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!

Hello Everyone!

Today's story begins with another story.

I love Mr Men and Little Miss stories! Don't you?? Of course you do! =D
I've been trying to find the whole collection but of course when I finally find one it's super duper extremely over my budget. =( 
I WILL OWN YOU ONE DAY! 


So here's today's mani featuring Little Miss Bad, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr Bump & Mr Happy! 

Seriously want a thinner brush...I'm too scared to trim it myself >< Been trying to source nice detailing brushes. Do let me know if you guys know anywhere with good ones. =)

That's it for this post! 
Cheers! ^^

Stamping Fever!

Elo Elo!
I've been super into konad recently and my current fav is Bundle Monster's 'Create Your Own' Collection 2013 (CYO 2013).

Yeah! So those are the plates included in the collection. Who says that freestyle is the only way to go!
I used to be so against using konad since the first time I used it and it turned out to fugly! >< 

But after getting slightly better I wanna find more ways to create manis with them! 

Here are some of the mani I did with the CYO 2013. 




Really like the binary code mani! I really want proper konad polishes now tho. The normal nail polish doesn't stick as much and sometimes ends up super light.

Definitely going to try out more designs and never forgetting to do some freestyle! Venturing out into another style of nail art soon!

That's it for now!
Cheers! ^^

The Lazy Blogger

Hey guys!
I seriously have nothing to say anymore...
I have been away from blogging for nearly half a year now...
I can't really say I was busy since I did have my bored moments here and then where I was able to blog...

ANYWAY! ENOUGH WITH THE SAD! 

HERE'S AN UPDATE ON ME!

If you guys follow me on instagram @chronosz (do note that this is my personal account and is not nails only), then you'll know that I have finally graduated with a Bachelor in Media from RMIT University! ^^


Whoopie! It was a bit hectic near the end of 2013. Went on a graduation trip to Tasmania, went back to Malaysia for my birthday, flew back to Melbourne for a roadtrip from Sydney to Melbourne with my parents and boyfriend, GRADUATED! and flew back the next day for good!

Yup! That was such a rush and I came back to a reunion dinner at that! So here I am 5 months into 2014 working a desk job! >< 

I've finally gotten used to work I know it took damn long and blogging again. Well not blogging doesn't mean I haven't been painting my nails! ^^

Here's my first mani back! Painted this for my grandfather's 82nd Birthday Party last Saturday.



Polishes are OPI Bubble Bath and NDLacquers Lovers in Lourve. 
Isn't the glitter oh so pretty! 

Natali from NDLacquers mixes such pretty colours! Her newest collection is glowy blacklight polishes! So awesome!!! 

Check them out on her website http://www.ndlacquers.com/

That's it for the memory lane post! See you guys! 

Cheers!

NDLacquers - A Night in Cannes Swatch

Elo elo!
I've got another NDLaquers swatch for you and if you've read the previous post then you'll know what you're in for!

Say hello to 'A Night in Cannes'.


A Night in Cannes is a turquoise jelly polish with aqua and maroon flakes! I fell in love the moment I saw the swatch!
The colour in the photos above are achieved with 4-5 layers. Since it's a jelly polish, it is super sheer but the glitter makes it opaque so remember to spread the glitter evenly for a nice opaque shade. 

Can't wait for Natali to make more! 
Check out her etsy shop!

Till next time!
Cheers!

NDLacquers - Lovers in Louvre Swatch

Hello all!
I was supposed to post all my Halloween manis for the rest of the challenge but I couldn't help myself from posting this first! XD

NDLacquers is an indie brand run by Natali D'Abbraccio. She just released her first collection 'Viva La France'. From that collection I got 2 polishes; A Night in Cannes and Lovers in Louvre. 

Lovers in Louvre is a clear base polish chock full of glitter! XD 
It is super duper pretty!!
Check out the photos!  

Base: 2 layers of OPI Alpine Snow
This is 1 layer of Lovers in Louvre.

This is 2 layers. 

Closest macro I could take with my digital camera.

Lovers in Louvre is filled with colourful micro glitters plus chunks of black, red, blue and silver hexagonal glitters of different sizes. 

With glitter, comes great responsibility! XD
I prefer 2 layers as if has more coverage over the nail but be warned!, it is a bit messy and it'll make your nail super fat XD That's how i feel! Hahaha!

This has just become one of my favorite glitter polishes!
Thanks Natali!

If you want to purchase any of her polishes please visit her etsy shop at NDLacquers.

Cheers!
^^
