Tribal nails!

Something that I have always wanted to do - tribal nail art :D
I have always wanted to do tribal nail art but didn't because I was afraid that they wouldn't turn out nice or that it'll look exceptionally messy.

But to my amazement, they turned out just perfect!
I used a white polish as the base and everything else was simply acrylic paint.

Ozotic 505

Months ago, I came across this term "nail polish jewellery" and I was stunned by the absolute beauty of it and how versatile nail polish can be.
So I knew I had to get my hands on some nail polish jewellery for myself.
&what better way than to do it DIY? :D

So I got on to Etsy, &ordered myself some cabochons and ring settings!
In this post, you get to see Ozotic 505 in a 18 x 25 ring and it is gorgeous.
Ozotic 505 is such a pretty polish, I succumbed to having just her on my nails because she is a real beauty.

Polish Days Jelly Sandwich

Today I have for you, Polish Days!
I came across Polish Days from Lacquered Affair's twitter, she was tweeting about this and I thought it seem like a fun idea so I went to google it :D
Then I came across Polly Polish's site on Polish Days. So I thought I would give it a try!

Besides, the theme was Jelly Sandwich(something I have been wanting to do, so double yay!)
&it's my first time doing a themed mani with the polish community(everyone will publish their post simultaneously on 3rd July-scheduled timing), I have this unexplainable excitement going through me as I type this :3

For this Jelly Sandwich, I had OPI's Don't Touch My Tutu and Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday.
Loving this typical creamy-rainbow-jelly-sandwich :D
Look at how shimmery this sandwich!

More delicious pictures after the break(:

I love you, with all my heart.

I am sorry for the loooong hiatus.
Have been procrastinating about blogging, resulting in accumulated over 300nail photos I have to edit.

But I will try to get my act together and get the posts up and running again!
Today, I have Megan Miller's Giada Pink and All The Glitters' Hole Hearted.

It's every girls' dream to be a Mermaid.

I think it's every girls' dream to be a Mermaid.
Or at least it's mine.
Of all the Disney Princess', Ariel the Mermaid was always my favorite.
She had long wavy red hair and she's a mermaid, two of which I think are super cool.

Today I have Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream.
&To be honest, I cannot find a name that's more apt than this.

fishtail braid, BUT ON YOUR NAILS.

Fishtail braid was quite the trend couple of months ago, and it still is pretty popular right now!
The reason as to why it was so popular because unlike the conventional braid, fishtail only requires 2 sections of the hair instead of 3.
Plus, it looks really different and pretty!
But did you know there are 2 ways to tie your fishtail?

Tadah! One goes up, and the other one goes down. (I'm loving the one on the right side better!)
Personally I feel that fishtail braids should be messy. The messier, the better :D
But if you have short hair or still cannot master the tying of fishtails, fret not.
Incorporate the look of fishtail braids on to your nails!
PS. The picture above, that's my hair. So it's credited to me :3


So the idea is to have 3 different colors, and paint them accordingly as you see above.
Feel free to play around with the colors and like tying a fishtail, you decide if you want it to go up or down(:
Unless you're a nail art pro or have steady hands in painting straight lines, feel free to draw them on free hand.
But if you're a klutz like me, use the tape method! (Click on image to enlarge)

thebeautydepartment (I absolutely love their site) has done a plaid nail art with the help of sticky tapes.
Which makes everything so much easier!
Imagine having the fishtail mani on both your hands, piece of cake ♥
Click here to read to their original post :D

So there you have it, the lovely fishtail braid.
To be honest, I've yet to do this mani on my nails before but I'd like to see you do it!
Do leave a comment below with your fishtail mani so I can have a look at it(:

And, does anyone have any idea why how the fishtail braid got its name?
I really don't think fish tails look anything like that.

Across the Universe. Let's go!

Naked nails with Deborah Lippmann Across The Universe.
One of my first very Deborah Lippmann(s), which I bought with Mermaid's Dream and Lara's Theme.

The pictures do not do justice to the polish at all. AT ALL.
It was really gorgeous in the bottle, and it looks even better on the nail.
I had only Across The Universe on my nails, didn't layer her on any polish because I wanted to see how she fares alone.

Note: This is a boyfriend approved nail polish.
My boyfriend likes the nail arts that I occasionally come up with, but he never praises a certain shade of polish.
But this time, it's different.
He said that I should just wear Across The Universe every chance I get and he even wanted to get me 2 extra bottles of her, just because!
