Born Pretty Store Nail Art Studs

image

So I finally had the chance to update my blog! Hurrah! With all the work with the business, long drives to and from the province, plus I have a new furbaby, and not to mention the bad weather doing all sorts of crap with my internet connection. So, yeah.

Any who! Allison of Born Pretty Store sent me some items about some weeks ago, and I’d be sharing some nail artsy I made with them. I also included a quick tutorial on how I applied them.

First up, a wheel of gold, silver, and black studs in different sizes. You can see more after the jump! 🙂

image

Today I’ll be sharing random swatches of two Revlon nail polish from my untrieds, and I have a crazy ton of them. I don’t even know why I keep buying more when I have two storage boxes crammed with pretties, practically begging me to swatch them already. 😀

Today I have another polish collection to share with you, “Hope & Freedom Fest” collection by Orly. Consists of 2 cremes, 2 shimmers, and 2 jelly glitters.

My First Attempt At Painting Characters

image

So as the title post says, this is my first attempt at painting a characters mani. I don’t know what has gotten into me that I decided to torture myself with the task. Lol Oh I remember, I was so pissed with everyone in our house that I decided to lock myself up in the room and (What else!) do my nails of course. Like a therapy? Haha. Okay, moving on…

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.

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
