Happy Valentine’s Day :)

Photo 2013-02-14 8 22 36 PM

I know it’s a bit late for those of us in Korea, but “Happy Valentine’s Day”! I hope you all had a lovely day.

This is all you need for this manicure:

  • White polish (I used white Holika Holika)
  • Konad red stamping polish
  • Konad plate m83
  • Matte top coat (I used Holika Holika again)

I added some gems, which I immediately picked off. So I wouldn’t suggest putting those on 🙂

I got lots of chocolates and candy from my students at school. It also happened to be my last day of teaching in Korea, so it was an emotional day.

Time for a cute, daisy manicure

I’m happy with this, it looks so cute and simple. I used a nude under coat (Holika Holika) then I used a dotting tool to make cute little flowers. I put some diamante jewels on the pinky as an accent. That’s it. Simple, cute, easy… 🙂 I hope you like it!

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?

Gradient blast

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 🙂

Autumn colours :)

All around Seoul at the moment are the most beautiful autumn trees. The bright yellows are such a beautiful colour.This is the road outside the school where I work.

The whole time I was away I couldn’t wait to get home and do a fall manicure. So.. here is my attempt 🙂

Image

I used a nail art brush to make little leaves. I tried to make it subtle and used lots of different colours to give it depth. However, I wasn’t crazy about the end result. I used Skin Food, Konad and Holika Holika (Korean brands). Here are the polishes I used.

I’m happy I tried it out, but it’s not my favourite mani. I can’t wait to keep trying new things 🙂 What do you think?

Weekend away party nails :)

So, I’m going to the beach this weekend 🙂 We’re leaving tonight.. So I thought I would do something fun with my nails seeing as I can’t change them until Monday! It’s going to be very hard for a nail addict not to be able to change my nails..

Again, most of the polishes I used are only found in Korea. I used Missha, Skin Food, Aritaum and a Holika Holika matte top coat (ring finger) nail polishes. I also used scotch tape (for the middle finger, which I messed up a little) and nail tape for the pinky. What do you think?  I hope you like it 🙂

Here are some of the polishes I used. I used a matte top coat to create the french manicure effect on my ring finger.
