NOTD – Watercolor Mani

I gave watercolor mani another try. Honestly, I didn’t really liked the outcome of my first attempt with it, which was the one I did for the mint theme of April nail art challenge.

Swatch – OMG Banana boat

image

Re-swatch of OMG (Oh My Golly) nail colors in Banana Boat.

Kind of really reminds me of banana, the fruit. Not the inflatable boat. I’ve ridden in one, and I hate it. Okay not really, but I hate the feeling of drowning it made me feel when I was thrown out of the boat. So anyway, this polish makes me want to get some ice cream and make a banana split. Yum!

So as promised, here’s a quick tutorial on how to do the “Watercolor” mani.

Okay, not my idea. I just saw it from @idreamoflacquer on Instagram, and thought I’d share it here on my blog by doing a tutorial of my own. 🙂

Mint – April Nail Art Challenge

image

I’m giving you the rare appearance of my dominant hand, a.k.a “Cinderella Hand”. Because at the time, I still don’t want to wipe off the one-stroke flowers I did.

So why Cinderella you might ask. Do you remember her? The girl with two evil step-sisters, and an even more evil step-mother. She’s the one who cleans their house, do all the laundry, cooks their food, feed the animals, but they treat her like crap. So basically, she does all the work but never given proper credit for it.

Same as the dominant hand with most, if not all, nail art ladies. Let’s just admit it shall we? It’s harder to paint our dominant hand using (of course) our non-dominant one, unless of course if you’re one of the lucky persons that you’re ambidextrous that is. And it’s even harder to take pictures coz of the awkward hand poses. It probably took me a million (okay not really, more like ten or so) pictures just to get two (not so) perfect photos to post. Am I the only one who does that? Tell me, please… lol

I used to show my right hand before. But I don’t know, I just stopped doing so.

Okay, moving on with this mani. 😀

Match OOTD – April Nail Art Challenge

image

Okaaay, so yeah, I’ve been away and hadn’t posted anything for ages. One, didn’t feel like talking (typing) much, and two, self issues. Or I think that’s just the same thing. So any who, I’m here now. 🙂 And I have more than a dozen (again) draft posts, in which I’ll be posting all today, or tomorrow, as best I could. But anyway I update my Instagram (almost) daily, probably coz I can just post there straight from my phone. So if you wanna find me there…

So let’s get started then. Here’s a mani I did for the April nail art challenge, matching OOTD (Outfit of the day). Though I was just staying home and my outfit was just tank top and shorts, so nothing really fab, I still managed to be inspired somehow by the shorts I was wearing. Lol
