I haven’t done my nails for so long! Love this colour from Naked Nail kit called Urban Decay. All the colours in this set are such great colours.

Fluorescent Nails

13 Aug

Many people have been wearing the fluorescent nail polishes, most of the time on their toe nails, for summer so I thought I would try it myself.

Tip: apply white nail polish first before the fluorescent paint, this will make the polish look brighter.

I wanted to add a design over the fluorescent nails because I felt it was a bit much just on it’s own, the colour doesn’t look quite the same in the pictures. The yellow is more of a bright orange in person. The abstract flowers didn’t turn out quite how I wanted, but I still like it!

How to get this look:

  1. base coat (China Glaze)
  2. white polish (Essie – Blanc) – 2 layers
  3. fluorescent colour (China Glaze – Sun Worshiper) – 2 layers
  4. using a flat art brush, dip in a dark colour (China Glaze – First Mate) and then in the fluorescent colour you had used, make stroke in a swirling motion from outward from a central point
  5. using a thinner art brush, dip in the white and a bit of the original fluorescent colour, roughly brush on top of the pedal

 

Polishes (from left to right): First Mate (China Glaze), Sun Worshiper(China Glaze), Blanc (Essie), Top Coat (OPI), Fast Dry Top Coat (Seche Vite), Base Coat (China Glaze)

 

For my one hand, I tried the OPI and the other I tried the Seche Vite top coat. The store clerk had been raving about the Seche Vite Top Coat and how it gives a great shine to your nails, but I found that it wasn’t any different from the OPI in terms of the shine. The quality of the Seche Vite was better because my nails were a lot smoother, even with the design, but for the price of $10, I don’t think it is worth it. I am sure any other top coat would work just as well.

Cherry Blossoms

15 Apr

 

Springtime is upon us again with cherry blossom trees in bloom. I love walking down a street on a nice sunny day with a bunch of cherry blossom trees on either sides of the road. My favourite cherry blossoms are the light pinks ones, whenever I see these gorgeous blossoms they makes me smile and feel happy.  They brighten up my day. It is unfortunate that they are only in bloom for a short while, but I guess it’s what my boyfriend says, “that’s what makes cherry blossoms so special”.
