Happy May, dear readers! I can’t believe that it’s already May – it feels like I just had my Christmas dinner last month!

For this week’s nail art, I’m using the same handmade decal technique which I introduced in previous posts (triangle tutorial here and zigzag tutorial here), but with an extra help from a new crafty tool I brought back from Japan. Read More

Yes, I am on my journey home (12-hour-flight is waiting for me…), but as I promised you yesterday, here I am with the tutorial :)

The title says ‘tricolour gradient nails’, but I’m still not sure what I should call this nail art. I wanted to call it marble (it does look like marble, right?), but if I say ‘marble nail art’, I thought that you would imagine ‘water marble’ design. Any idea what it’s called? Anyone? Read More

Happy Monday, lovelies! Today’s tutorial will show you how to create zigzag nail art in an easy way.

I’ve been dying to try zigzag designs like Missoni’s textiles or chevron, but I always failed perfecting the design because… well, my hands were too shaky. So, if you are not too confident about your hand-painting skill like me, this tutorial is perfect for you :) Read More

Are you good at hand drawing? Well, I’m not, and that means that I usually rely heavily on masking tapes when painting patterns on my nails. OK, I love using masking tapes, but… sometimes it drives me CRAZY (you know, all the cutting and the extra drying time?). There has to be another way, I thought.

And… yap, I finally got it. I no longer have to worry about my shaky hands! I love myself. Can I say it again? OK, maybe not. So, let’s get cracking on! Read More

I don’t know about where you live, but it feels like the spring is million years away here in Brighton. It’s not only the bitter coldness but also the endless grey sky that make me crave for sunny (or at least, not rainy) spring… So, today’s nail art is kind of a mixture of spring and winter colours; the polishes I used here are my latest favourites, and hopefully they’re going to cheer me up!
