Glacier Inspired Water Marbles

Hi lovelies,

I'm so excited about going on the glacier tomorrow!!! These were done before I went on this trip though, I scheduled them to be posted just around the same time, to share my excitement with you.


I started with a white base then added a thin layer of Ozotic 617, to add a light blue to the nails along with some sparkles. And sorry, I can't remember which polishes I used for the water marble...





Now off to bed, gotta get up early tomorrow ; )

Suicide Squad inspired nails

Hi lovelies,

Today I am sharing an exciting mani! Inspired by the movie Suicide Squad


And of course I can't paint my nails as well with my left hand : P


I started with Glam Polish Apple Mint, then sponged on random spots of FM Make Up Nail Lacquer Cornflower and OPI Need Sunglasses? and added some tiny dots of red acrylic paint.




After sealing the background with a clear topcoat, I painted the the characters on each nail using acrylic paint again. The first two characters I decided to do were Joker and Harley Quinn, Harley was my favourite from the movie, and I sure can't leave out her pudding.


My second favourite was Diablo, because his super cool power!!!




Let me know which character do you like the best ; )

Bananas

Hi lovelies,

Today I have a mani inspired by my foodie spirit for you, it inspired by this adorable banana shaped cookie and one of my favourite fruit, banana. I have always been a big fan of Spoon and Fork creations, they are all so cute! And when I heard that they are having a popup stall at the QVB market, I knew I had to visit. I bought both animal shaped ones and fruits shaped ones, and this one was my favourite, although they all taste the same.

 

For the nails, I started with China Glaze For Audrey, then painted the abstract bananas using acrylic paint. This muted turquoise goes really well with the bright yellow.

MUSIC featuring BM Musik City stamping plate

Hi lovelies,

Today I am sharing an interesting reverse stamping I have done recently.


For this mani, I started by preparing the reverse stamping decal by using the BM Lotus Mat, and at the mean time painting my nails white with Essie Blanc. The plate I used for the letters were BM-S320, after stamping them on the mat, I filled the letters with acrylic paint. Different colours were applied and overlapped of each other for the rainbow effect. 


I applied a very thin layer of clear base coat to the decals, and let dry before I lifted them up from the map and transfer to the nails.



Loving this mattified rainbow letters!


Made a horrible mistake thinking I could do five letter on different fingers and would still be able to tell the word though, my boyfriend is asking "What's U SIC?" as I'm typing up the post......


Maybe this is more clear.


This is the link for the plate I used for this mani.

Pokémon Nails

Hi lovelies,

Today I've got a mani inspired by the most trendy game at the moment, and one of my favourite cartoon when I was little!!! 

I went a little crazy about the exclamation mark, too excited, lol.


I've been looking out for all things Pokémon lately, hence this gigantic Poké ball donut. It's filled with Nutella, I'm gonna post a close-up foodie pic on my Instagram ; )



The polishes I used for each Pokémon were the following from the thumb to pinkie, Island Girl Big Island Volcano,  Face of Australia Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy, OPI Need Sunglasses? China Glaze Sunday Funday, Essie Turquoise & Caicos, OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Essie Fear or Desire and Zoya Arizona.


The faces were drawn with acrylic paint. Can you guess what Pokémons I drew? I'll leave the answers at the bottom of the post.




Almost too big too grab single handed : P


The Pokémons were Bulbasaur, Pikachu, Squirtle, Eevee and Charmander.

Bundle Monster Electro Glo Collection Part II

Hi lovelies,

Today I have another mani using the pastel stamping polishes from bundle monster, this one is street style : P I'm trying to create some graffitis using plate BM-XL207, which is a collaboration BM did with Madam Luck.


I used a black polish as my base and added the stampings using the following shades, Tranceland (mint), Jungle Mirage (neon yellow), Rave Babe (salmon), Mercury Bassline (periwinkle) and Kandi Spirit (pink).



Dry brush technique was then used to make them look grungy.



The stamping polishes are available from Bundle Monster both as individuals and in sets.

Bundle Monster Electro Glo Collection Part I

Hi lovelies,

I finally have time to sit down and type up some long overdue posts, this was supposed to be posted last month, review and nail art inspired by the Electric Pastel stamping polishes from Bundle Monster.

These were the six shades from the collection, I have swatched Tranceland, the mint polish, and used three of the polishes from this collection for the inspired nail art. There is also part II of the review, since I have done a second nail art with more shades from this collection.


This is two coats of Tranceland. Since these are stamping polishes, they are quite opaque, and of course on the thick side, not as easy to apply as the regular nail polishes. However I am willing to take the extra effort for some of the shades.



For the nail art, I used the periwinkle, lilac and mint shades, which were Mercury Bassline, Monarch Dream and Tranceland in order. I started with a white base, then stamped with stamping plate BM-S105, and finished with the same polish painting the tips in a triangle shape.




The final result is a bit like a reverse french tip.


The Eletro Glo Collection is available from Bundle Monster, and six shades are also available as individuals and in different sets.

Japanese Nail Wraps

Hi lovelies,

I'm back!! In this post, I would like to share with you, the nail wraps I got from a Japanese cosmetics store. I picked up the wraps with light themes, quite impressed with the quality of these, consider how cheap they were. 

 


There are a total of four sheets of nail wraps in a package, which cost only $5 (I think :D).


The instructions were in Japanese, however the pics explained everything pretty well.


Just need to be care that the wraps are super sticky and brittle once it's dried.




Loving how they came out, definitely one of the most worthy $5s I've ever spent, and I still have plenty of strips left for two more manis.
