Easter Nails

Easter is coming so I decided to work on an Easter themed nails today!

I did something really simple with just a bunny and a couple of easter eggs.. as you know.. I'm not capable of doing really complicated nail art designs. =P

Anyway I decided to mattify this mani and I love it this way! You can't really see it now, but there's actually a bit of screw up with my bunny but the matte top coat covered it up. It'll probably get amplified if I used a normal top coat so I'm really glad that the matte top coat saved me! :)

We don't celebrate Easter here, but what do you think of my Easter nails? Did I capture the spirit of it? haha!

Polishes Used:
OPI Can't Find My Czechbook
OPI Pedal Faster Suzi!
OPI Jade Is The New Black
China Glaze Lemon Fizz

Sweet Nails!

I finally got my OPI Euro collection and OPI Oz The Great & Powerful collection two days ago so I decide to do a sweet nails with my new polishes!

I thought that the soft shades in Oz collection were just boring nude shades thus I was really pleasantly surprised when I noticed that they were jellies! I love OPI jellies so of course, I had to do a jelly sandwich!

For my first 3 fingers, I did a jelly sandwich using OPI I Theodora You and OPI The colorful glitters are just nicely muted by the light pink I Theodora You.. Isn't it just gorgeous?!

I had only wanted to do an accent nail on my ring finger but accidentally painted my pinkie as well.. So today I have a weird design of double accent nails. LOL

The design on my ring and pinkie finger is a design I saw from a Pinterest tutorial. It's supposed to be a triple heart design, but now when I look it.. I think it would have looked better if I painted it the other way round.. -.-"

That's all for today! What do you think of my sweet nails today?

Ruffian Nails!

Today I tried doing Ruffian nails design and it's surprisingly much easier than I expected!

I was super satisfied with the colours I chose for this manicure as well, which are OPI My Private Jet and OPI Gwen-ever. OPI Gwen-ever appeared too orange in the photo though.. It's much more coral in real life, but this is probably the first time my hands doesnt look too yellow in photo with an orange polish on. :)

The colours are contrasting and looked so sophisticated! In love with it~

I think I'm now very much encouraged by the success of this manicure.. Will be trying out more designs soon!

Dripping Ice Cream Nails!

I have been wanting to try dripping nail art for quite some time after seeing all the beautiful pictures and what I must say is.. It's really not as easy as it looks. :(

For the base, I used OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know? and stamped on the stripes to create the look of an ice cream cone, and painted on the 'ice cream' with some pastel colors. Maybe it's because my nail beds are really small? I had some trouble with trying to make drips of the right sizes.. And before I knew it.. All of my drips began to look the same! -.-"

I think I really need to work on improving my nail art skill.. getting super lazy!

Polishes Used:
OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know?
OPI Gargantuan Green Grape
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
China Glaze Electric Beat
China Glaze Dance Baby

Glam Nails!

Gave my nails a little glam today with a mixture of Leopard & Zebra prints, and an accent nail with China Glaze Glistening Snow.

Glistening Snow is a silver with holographic glitter polish that is meant to be used on it's own more than as a glitter top coat as it's too opaque. The formula and finish for this polish is the same as many others released by China Glaze such as - Hello Gorgeous (Pink), I'm Not Lion (Champagne), I Herd That (Copper).. This finish is really becoming one of my favourite! It's easy to apply and the bling is always just right. Love love!

For my animal prints, I sucks at doing Zebra, so I stamped on the zebra print on part of my nails with Bundle Monster plate BM-223 and free handed the leopard prints on. Overall I think I overdid the Zebra prints, but it looks okay from afar, so I'll just leave it as it is. You might have already noticed, I'm not so much of a perfectionist. =P

That's all for today, chaos!
