Hello all!
Today's St. Patrick's Day and though I do not personally celebrate this day I am here to share a manicure with you!

I used Barry M "Waikiki" and Morgan Taylor "Gotta Have Hue" for this nail art. I was inspired by a quick Google image search on the web whereby I saw cute men in green. And so, I decided two paint on a green tux and a hat! I wonder if anyone actually will wear a suit in this color LOL!


And of course, how can we forget about the shamrock right? To accompany the look I did a simple dotticure on my pinky!

Hi there!

Today's prompt "swirls" immediately got me off doing a watermarble. I used OPI "We the Female" and "Pale to the Cheif". Watch this video to see how I did the swirl. I find that my middle nail was extraordinary!! I mean look at that! So I decided to do a macro shot to include all goodness.


...and viola, this is one of THE best manicures I've done in a long while! Doesn't this also remind you of candy cane? LOL

To be fair, I actually did a few trial runs before dipping my nail into the water. I wanted it to be as swirly as it can get just to be in line with the theme! Let me know what are your thoughts on this look! Is the design a bit too much or you're all for it?

Hi there friends! 

I am two days late on this prompt but I am surely catching up now!

Prior to this challenge I didn't know the Festival of Color, Holi. I had to do a Google search LOL! This is one of the reasons why I love challenges, I get to learn and know about new stuff!

So talking back about my manicure, here is my interpretation through a simple web search. I did a simple nail art. Using the below listed polishes, I blobbed on the different colors on a stamper and squished the colors together on the nail. 

I used these neon colors; China Glaze "Flip Flop Fantasy", China Glaze "Turned Up Turquoise", Orly "Beach Cruiser" and Shareyda "B10".


I ended up trying to go for the matte look because neons and matte looks great :D Let me know what you guys think of this manicure.

Hola!

Today I am posting my next manicure for the prompt for Clairestelle8March butterflies. I had on a rich purple holographic polish Cirque "Fascination Street" as the base and using Bundle Monster 718 "Butterfly Wishes" plate, I stamped on the butterfly designs. I used Konad's light purple stamping polish for the designs! Also, to spice things up a notch I placed some gold glitter pieces around the design.


I really really love the pattern on the butterfly wings, it's so elegant and pretty, don't you agree?? Here's a macro shot to justify just that!

Hello! It's March and I wanted to be more active in creating new nail art designs, and to do this I have decided to participate in #Clairestelle8March challenge! I am quite late on schedule but I am intent on finishing the challenge πŸ™‚


I used the MoYou London Suki 08 plate for this design. Sadly, MoYou London does not sell this plate anymore. But who knows, you might be able to find one on ebay! 

I started off with OPI "My Vampire is Buff" as the base color. It is the perfect beige. I wanted to add neon to this manicure, so I decided to use China Glaze "Flip Flop Fantasy" to begin with the first stamping. After which I stamped the same designs in black using Konad black stamping polish.


What I did was to align the black stamped image a bit off from the neon orange so that a bit of that brightness shows through. Here's a special macro shot of the middle nail design, which I loved the most out of all that I did πŸ˜›


I know my nails are super duper short, but I kept having issues with my nail breaking so I had to chop 'em off!

item was provided for honest review

Hello there! 

I am back with more stamping, this time around it is reverse stamping! Today I am using BP L052 stamping plate and also reviewing it.

Like all BornPrettyStore's stamping plate, they are really easy to use. The designs on this plate particularly caught my attention because of the detail of the design and the range of options to choose from! Here is what I managed to achieve πŸ˜„

Reverse stamping simply means that after picking up the stamp, I color in the spaces on the stamper itself. Here's a list of the nail polishes I used for coloring:

Yellow: OPI "I Just Can’t Cope-acabana"
Blue: Sally Hansen "Dive In"
Orange: China Glaze "Flip Flop Fantasy"
Light Pink: Essie "Fiji"
Green: Kure Bazaar "Carioca"
Red: Kure Bazaar "Juicy"
