This is the second Yardley Quick Dry (Limited Summer Edition) polish that I bought. You can see the Summer Sun swatch here. This range of Yardley Quick Dry polishes, as far as I know, was only released in South Africa. I got it on sale, so I assume that it’s from last season. I still like it though (and, who can resist a sale??).
I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend! I’ve had a very relaxing and restful one.
Here is my design for the “Gothic” theme. I’m not sure if it’s really Gothic, but I tried! I used a Modi deep red that I had from Korea (number 68 – my Korean is quite rusty, but I think it’s called “Riding Hood”). I left some of the nail natural. I also went a bit gem-crazy. It’s nice to go over the top once in a while 🙂
I hope you all like! Remember to check out the other bloggers participating in this challenge. Click on the InLinkz link below to see what the others have done.
I did this manicure today and I’m still deciding if I like it or not. What do you think? I thought it was kind of eye catching and different, so I decided to enter it as my second picture in Mommy Loves Nail Polish’s awesome Facebook contest, you can check out all the pics on her Facebook page.
About 80% of my polishes are in a box on their way back to South Africa right now, so I’ve got really limited colours to work with. I bought this blue about 2 days ago (just what I need a few days before leaving the country – more luggage!). But I couldn’t resist, it was less than $1, it’s a brand called Organic Farm and not bad for the price! This is a lumo deep blue. Then I stamped on top of it with Konad M83 and added some red gems. Hot or not? I’m still undecided.
I really enjoyed taking this mani out on the town today. It was bright and the perfect nail art to have for the day I had. My boyfriend and I went to a theme park, Lotte World in Seoul. It was a lot of fun! I went on my first roller coaster and screamed my lungs out! I wish I had a photo of me on the ride, it would have been priceless! But here’s a photo of Lotte World anyway 🙂
These are the last few days of vacation, so I’ve been trying to relax and do as little as possible – hence the lack of posts lately. Sorry about that, but I will get back into the swing of things soon 🙂
Here is a very simple manicure. I did a lilac undercoat (an unnamed polish from The Face Shop) and I used a white 2-way nail art brush/pen to make the stripes. I used to be so scared of doing lines freehand, but these long brushes for nail art are super handy. It’s so easy to do lines now, although they aren’t perfect, they look fine 🙂 Then I added some nail gems to the pinky.
I like how it turned out 🙂 I hope you all like it..
This is my first post since Christmas 🙂 I hope everyone had a happy Christmas day 🙂 I got an amazing camera from my boyfriend for Christmas, so I’m really excited to learn how to use it and use it for my blog. Also maybe dabble in some other photography 🙂
I did a gradient with a tape pattern and a jewel accent nail. I used a random purple and Holika Holika peach combination for the gradient. I cut scotch tape into triangles for the tape design. This is the result.. I hope you like it 🙂
Wow! 24 manicures in 24 days.. and now it’s Christmas 🙂 What a wonderful end to a fun and entertaining challenge.
I wanted to do something simple and elegant for Christmas, so I re-created the simple Christmas tree manicure. Here is a link to a picture tutorial from Girls Hue. But this mani has been really popular this year so I’m sure you’ve seen it.
Here it is 🙂 Merry Christmas everyone!
This last picture is my mani out and about 🙂 It has a pretty sparkle in the light 🙂
The theme for Day 6 is “White”. I found it a bit hard because I didn’t know how to make white exciting. So I decided to do a “lace”-inspired manicure. I used some inspiration from Google – Here is the blog I used for inspiration. She used mainly stamps, and because of my mental block against stamping, I decided to do it purely by hand.
I used a purple The Face Shop for an undercoat and I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On” for the finer work. I used a dotting tool and a nail art paint brush. Also, I added some jewels, just for the bling factor. I don’t think it’s really true to the theme of the day because the white is quite minimal.. but I love it!
Not to ramble on.. so, here it is. What do you think?
Today I spent an extremely relaxed day at my friend’s house in Seoul, Korea. I’m coming down with flu, so we stayed indoors and ate nice food. I did my friend’s nails… 🙂
I used a pink Modi (Korean brand from Aritaum), Sally Hansen Xtream Wear “White On”, Sally Hansen Xtream Wear “Flirt”, black nail art pen and silver nail art jewels. What do you think? I hope you like it 🙂 – More importantly, I hope my friend likes it, because it’s on her nails right now 🙂
