Tutorial: Hand-painted Roses

I’m extremely happy with how these turned out! The nice thing about roses is that they don’t have to be absolutely perfect to look gorge! Here’s the final result:

I got the inspiration from Katy Perry. I absolutely love her nails, she always has such crazy designs. See the rose mani below (top left)?

Tutorial: Textured Marble Nails

I’ve been wanting to try these nails for a while. It’s a simple concept and I love how it turned out! It gives your nails such a lovely texture and it’s easy enough to do quickly. I wanted very earthy colours to imitate a stone/marble texture. Check out the photo tutorial if you want to try it yourself!

The polishes I used were:

  • Undercoat nude: Modi 43
  • Dark brown: OPI “Wooden Shoe Like to Know?”
  • Light brown/gold: Tip Top 919 “Iced Almond”

Polka dot and lace

I know this is off-topic (I am supposed to be posting a Halloween mani today), but I didn’t get a chance to do my Halloween mani last night. I’ll try do it asap 🙂

In the meantime, here is a fun little mani I did this week. I wore it to work, so it couldn’t be too outrageous. I used Tip Top Solar Flare for the base and Tip Top Cream Puff for the polka dots. I also added some lace stickers that I had lying around from Korea.

I really like it.. Hope you do too! 🙂
