Burnt pink stamping manicure

This is one from the archives 🙂 Its a relatively simple manicure, but I decided to spice it up with a Holika Holika matte top coat. I also added the french tip gloss top coat for contrast. I used a Konad silver stamping polish and the m67 stamping plate.

To be honest, I’m not crazy about this colour (and just as well because I couldn’t tell you what it’s called because it’s all in Korean). It’s a burnt pink colour from Missha. I really liked it in the bottle, but the more I saw it on my nails the more it reminded me of a granny manicure. I love the pics though, so I had to share it. Maybe you will like it, what do you think?

Day 16 – Inspired by a song

Ok.. I’ve been struggling to keep up with these posts – AND it’s the most difficult section of topics. I decided to do Jingle Bells (I know that Polish Alcoholic did the same topic, and did an awesome job, which I was horrified to see, I’ve been terrified of going up against such a great blog in this challenge with the same topic) but I thought about it for ages and I couldn’t think of anything else. I figured it’s better to get it done than nothing at all.

I used a Skin Food mustard colour and a Face Shop yellow. I also used a Sally Hansen “White On”. I popped on a bow sticker for good measure too.

I promise that I will be more creative soon (tomorrow is the last day of work). I will be more creative and put some more time into this challenge for the future.. but for now.. here it is:

Here is yesterday’s post – I fell asleep before posting it last night. I found a very pretty micro glitter from Skin Food and some cute bow stickers. Simple and it looks nice 🙂 I hope you like it!

Day 6 – White

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?

My friend’s mani

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 🙂

I love my toes

Here’s a quick Sunday night post about my pedicure (please excuse the chubby feet, let’s just say I could never be a foot model). I don’t often do my toes, so I wanted to so something awesome and striking. I found a great tutorial on “bow and stripes” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CesllaZ6WV8. I did it almost exactly the same, except I used tape for the stripes (safer than freehand). I really love the result! Also, it’s my first O.P.I experience, so I had a lot of fun!

I used O.P.I “Wooden shoe like to know?”, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear “White on”, Organic Farm pink and an O.P.I top coat.

Don’t worry, I won’t have lots of feet pics on this blog. I hope you like the pedi. What do you think?
