Classy & Girly

Hello all!

Today's mani is a classy border mani which in my opinion adds class and is also a bit girly at the same time. You can definitely wear this for all occasions be it casual or formal. 

While I'm at it, I shall review this nude polish from The Faceshop. I really like the colour but it took me 5 layers to get it opaque. It was also quite streaky. I do forgive these aspects because the colour is just what I wanted. 

I drew the borders with acrylic black paint then went on to stamp the design from Bundle Monster plate BM-407 on with Mundodeunas black stamping polish and filled in the gaps with black acrylic paint. Lastly, I topped it off with my favourite top coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl. 

That's it for this post!

Nail Biter's Corner #5 - Emergencies

Ello all!

So...I haven't done a Nail Biter's Corner in a while and I mean a LONG while.

I've been meaning to post this up since I realised this...trick? Not sure if it qualifies as a trick but here goes!

As usual, my nail chipped/broke while I was outside with friends. That was a major nail emergency and all I had in my handbag that was remotely useful was a nail clipper, a nail file and plasters.

Then it hit me! I always buy elastic plasters since I tend to move around a lot. So, what I did was cut a small piece of the elastic part and taped the break.

Make sure it covers the break and push some under it also, that way, even when you try to pick at it, it'll have no effect. Keep it on until you reach home where you can patch it up or carefully trim it.

That's it for this post!
If you've tried this out, let me know how it goes.

Love Birds

Hey peeps!

So I just posted a NOTD on instagram and thought "I better write this blog post before I get lazy!"

Yup! That's me...anyway...I haven't painted birds before me thinks...I wanted to do an owl mani that day but all the googled owls didn't appeal to me...Darn me for not screen shoting the nice owl mani!

Back to the point, I saw this wedding invitation on FB that my friend posted (was not his wedding) and thought "Well, that's cute! I should paint that!" So, I did with a little change in scenery of course hahaha

Here's the original.

And here's the mani!

Colours used:
Base coat - Essence Ultra Strong Nail Hardener
Base - Miss Ashleigh Experi-mint & Baby's Got The Blues Ombre (I did this ombre using a brush technique I saw @yagala do on insta...check her out! I think this technique blends better than sponge!)
Others - Acrylic Paint
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl

That's it for this post!

New Year?

Hey all!

So I haven't posted up my new year nails...well here they are!

I asked my bf what should I paint for new years and he said fireworks...

Urghhhh why why why fireworks! I seriously cannot handle fireworks because actual fireworks are so pretty so how are you going to get that onto a nail? I'm sure other nail artists have done it but it just doesn't work for me.

So this is what I ended up with on new years...

Disappointing...I know but there will definitely be a time when I will be happy painting fireworks!

Till then!
