Hello! Wow it has been a long time since I have been here but I am pretty excited to get back into the mood of painting (after such a long hiatus in Europe). I am still in the midst of getting the hang of being back in school and living at home that painting my nails is such a huge luxury.
In the mean time though….
I have Lou’s awesome galaxy nails to share! She is truly the nail expert with such pretty nails all the time!:)
Till the next time!
I always wanted to do something inspired by those volume control levels you see on media players. One of the konad plates had this design which reminded me of that but the thing was I wanted the dots to be different colours so I couldn’t do it the konad way.
So I used some dotting tools Jan bought and did each row of dots in a different colour!

Tadah! Got some pretty good comments about this design so I was pretty happy with it🙂
So, Jan showed me this link http://thebeautydepartment.com/2012/04/sticky-situation/ where they paint on scotch tape to cut out little shapes and lines to paste on nails. Looked super cool so I decided to try it out! It is honestly, not as easy as it looks. It was so tedious painting the scotch tape, waiting for it to dry, cutting up the shapes and then getting them to stick without ruining your other nails. Also, the little pieces kept coming out and it was hard to cut it to the exact size so they would stick out here and there. I really have to get me more Seche Vite top coat, it is so hard to do these creative things without a quick dry.
Because I wasn’t really happy with the outcome and the colour combi, I ended up taking everything out. Ah well at least I tried it! Snapped a few shots before wiping them off tho😀
I think the next time I try this I will make sure I have a quick dry top coat on hand!
It’s been a long while but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped painting my nails! Of course with work and what not I barely have time to do my nails but I do indulge once in awhile, need to start looking for more inspiration. Anyway since I am the biggest procrastinator, these pics have been collecting dust in my bb. So here we go🙂
This one is from one of those days when I couldn’t decide which colour to use, so I decided to go crazy with the colours and mix different coloured bases and tips. Always solves the problem haha
Have a great week everyone!
Featuring a really pretty set of nails done by a fellow Erasmus friend here Gunda! Love love love it:)
Similar designs seen previously on this space: Makoke Nails! and Cupcakes.
Till the next time!:)
this was one of the first manicures that i’ve done for Auntie Fay, one of my “loyal customers” hahaha.
she’s really funky and isn’t afraid to use a variety of loud colours so i always have fun painting her nails.
i used konad for both the houndstooth print and the marbling design on her toenails.
i came up with this colour combi for a friend to match her pink bride’s maid’s dress.
used konad for the plaid design and finished off with a hot pink funky french.
i fell in love with the colour combi, i just had to do it on my own nails too!
looks really chic just in black and white too, but there’s just something about hot pink…!
