Nail Art: ‘Pretty in Pink’ Wedding

Pretty in Pink Nail top

At my friend’s wedding that took place last week, I had the opportunity to paint the bride’s nails. Her request was 1) pink 2) simple 3) pretty; she liked the nails (big relief!) but unfortunately, I didn’t have enough time to take photos. So I decided to recreate the design on my nails today.

Two more days for my friend’s wedding, and today nothing holds me back; I’m going to put all ‘it’s time to party’ spirit on to my nails. I’m going to wear a simple black dress, so my bright nails with lots of sparkles won’t crash with the dress (relieved sigh). Read More

Double French with a Twist 2

Happy Friday everyone! I have been secretly collecting grey polishes for the past month or so; and today, I chose two of them for double French manicure. And since the polishes I chose were a bit ‘dull’ if painted in ordinary French manicure way, I gave it a bit of a twist. Read More

Hello lovelies! Today’s tutorial will show you how to make gradation nails using glitter powder.

Nail Art: Sparkly Royal Wedding 1

Yes, one more day to the Royal Wedding! Am I excited? Heck, yes! It’s been nearly eight years since I started to live in the UK, and I think it’s going to be one of the most ‘thank God I’m in the UK’ moments. So, in order to properly get the feel of the special day, I’ve done bling-bling nail art fit for the Royal Wedding. Read More

Nail Art: Matte Gray & Beige

Nail Art: Matte Gray & Beige top

I love nails with lots of sparkles, all shiny and glossy. But today, I felt like having matte-finish nails because… I don’t know, they look soft, retro and contemporary at the same time. I’ve added some rhinestones (because I cannot not) but they still look simple and pretty, I hope. If you don’t have a matte-finish top coat, I assure you that it’d be a great investment because you can enjoy your nail polish twice as much! Read More

Making Ribbon with Metal Balls

This tutorial will show you how to create a ribbon motif using metal balls. I know, these balls are tiny; be extra careful not to knock the container over because that’ll be a serious disaster (don’t ask me why I know this)! Read More

Nail Art: White & Gold Double French Manicure

Nail Art: White & Gold Double French Manicure 1

I love simple French manicure, and I also love doing it double. Double French manicure have classy cuteness as the original one, and you can also have lots of fun by experimenting different combinations of colours. Don’t panic if the lines get wonky or smudged, as you can cover it up by adding thin lines with a liner or putting rhinestones. Read More
