Birthday Nails, Drips

Hi lovelies,

Yesterday was my birthday, and these were the nails I did for the special day : D Inspired by my favorite cake artist Katherine Sabbath and her chocolate dripped cakes. These are lots of chocolate drips and extra sprinkles! 


The base I used was Zoya Wednesday, and the drips were Essie Absolutely Shore.


The glitter was Luminar Lacquer Sweet Disposition.


And on my thumb, I used Absolutely Shore as the base, dabbed on some glitters and stamped "MAKE A WISH" using MoYou Fesitive - 39. I hope that my year will be full of glitters and happiness.

Alice in the Wonderland

Hi lovelies,

Using the Alice in the Wonderland plate by MoYou I created this colorful quick mani. It was also partly inspired by the BlackMilk martini off the shoulder crop, the newest addition to my wardrobe, a total stunner ; ) Follow my Instagram (@erinzi)if you're interested.

The base I used was OPI My Vampire is Buff, the plate was Alice 01, and the stamping polishes were Revlon Amethyst, Sally Hansen Get Juiced, Wet n Wild Club Havana and China Glaze Sunday Funday.






The direct link for the plate is here.

Green and Gold Polka Dots

Hi lovelies,

These were the nails I wore on Australia Day, it was a last minute idea, so I didn't have time to type up the post on the day.


The base color I used was OPI Damone Roberts 1968, a vintage shade of minty sage-toned green. The dots was Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow, applied using a dotting tool.




It's not Australia Day without lamingtons. This is apple pie lamington from Zumbo : P And my nails was kind of inspired by it as well.


Have a nice weekend everyone!

Color of the Year 2016

Happy Australia Day!!

I have two manis to share with you guys today, using the colors of the year announced by Pantone, Rose Quartz and Serenity.


The closest thing to rose quartz I could find in my stash was Face of Australia I'll Take You to the Candy Shop, a pastel pink shimmer.


And to make it a perfect summer mani, I added some palm tree water decals; decals are from Born Pretty Store.




When I was looking for a serenity shade in the stash, I realised that I have quite a few similar polishes, is it an obsession?

This is Essie Bikini So Teeny.


The triangle patterns was created using strip tapes, for 'how to' please see this post.




I'm so in love with this design, simple and elegant.


Have a nice day everyone!

Nails inspired by Bikinis

Hi lovelies,

This is not my first time doing nails inspired by bikinis, however these are inspired by my first set of bikinis. I bought them a few years back, it's a miracle they still look so new, hehe. 


I applied the nail polish using the help of striping tape recreating the tartan pattern of the bikinis, the polishes I used are listed as the following: Essie Blanc, Cocktail Bling,  OPI Who the Shrek Are You? Illamasqua Spartan and China Glaze For Audrey and Sunday Funday, 





Some pics from last week at Bronte Beach Pool. I painted my nails for the day, I am starting to paint my nails according to occasions now ; )

Deborah Lippmann Fantastic Voyage

Hi lovelies,

Today I have and oldie but goodie to share with you. I did this mani for Christmas last year, and became really busy and forgot to post about it afterwards. I have a few manis stocked up now, so I decided to post them all gradually. 

This is just a simple glitter mani with stamping accents. I had a layer of Essie No Place Like Chrome underneath the glitters though, the glitters are then layered on using a makeup sponge, so the coverage was good but the nails wouldn't be too thick. 

Fantastic Voyage is a glitter bomb with sheer blue base, it has small silver holo hexes, and micro gold and blue holo hexes, like a disco ball on the nails.

On the accent I had a black base, and stamped No Place Like Chrome over it using BM-323.

Race Day Nails and Outfit

Hi lovelies,

These are the nails I was wearing yesterday for the first Chinese Festival of Racing at Randwick Turf Club, and my first ever race day ever. It was a lot of fun, the crowd, the excitement and the HORSES! We got there a too early, so we took tons of pre-racing photos, haha, I'm putting them at the end of the post.


I matched my nail color to my dress and fascinator, using essie Blanc and Turquoise & Caicos.



And that's my clutch, coral, in contrast with the turquoise.



Now of photos of me XD



Me and Hanna, my bff.



Have a nice Sunday everyone!

Grace-full Nail Polish Erin's Ocean

Hi lovelies,

Today I'm sharing one of the most special nail polish for me with you, this was from Theresa as a Christmas gift. She asked what would my dream polish be like, and I was really into water activities and still am, so I said "something like the ocean, sparkly and squishy". Erin's Ocean, Thesera named it, it is a beautiful blue jelly with gold/green micro flakies, I'm pretty sure the flakies are iridescent, cause the color changes slightly from different angles.





A shaded pic, the flakies are really sparkly in real life.


Here are the waves!! This is would be my kind of beach mani, simple yet stunning.



Thank you Theresa for making me this gorgeous polish!!
