Howto: Caviar Nails.

image

Wazzup!!? :> ONLY A FEW MORE DAYS BEFORE AON and I still don’t have a ticket. But I have my outfit and nails ready hohoho. Please don’t run out of tickets pls. pls.

Today’s Howto is the simplest and easiest nail art design I’ve ever tried <3 It’s super simple and so quick to do! You’ll just need to prepare a base nail color, nail caviar (you could buy these at Beauty Kingdom) and a top coat.

  • Base Color: Revlon Top Speed in 047 Essence.
  • Nail Caviar: Beauty Kingdom.
  • Top Coat: Caronia Fast-Dry Top Coat.

image

First step is to pick a base color. Apply it to nails and then~

Revlon: Colorstay, Glitter Polish, & Top Speed Nail Enamels.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! <3333 Today’s review deals with nail enamels! <3 I got these pretty polishes from my aunt residing in Osaka, Japan. Arigatou gozaimasu!!! <3

image

I love the variation of the polish bundle that my aunt gave hihi <3

image

The first polish I’d love to share is the Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in 060 Cafe Pink.

image

Japanese~ <3 Would love to learn how to read these in the future!!!

image

The brush is flat and a bit tapered at the corners. Definitely helps spread the polish more evenly.

image

The consistency is just right, not too thick and not too fluid.

Howto: Sablay Nail Art.

The feeling after recognition rites~ ahhhh it still hasn’t sunk in yet. Everything’s a bit floaty floaty kekeke~ I can’t even remember walking on the stage :)) but I do remember my response to our Department Chair when we shook hands. She said, “Congratulations.” And I said, “Congratulations to you too.ommmoooo :))))) 

Well tomorrow’s our University Graduation, so maybe then I’ll feel feelings :) So for now, I’m going to share my Sablay Nail Art~ <3

Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen. Great for French Manicures. Yes, a pen! Which dispenses nail polish <3 COOL @.@

Sally Hansen gives us a lot of colors to choose from. But because of my bias towards anything pink, choosing the 09 Neon Pink was a no-brainer. <3

HowTo: THE HUNGER GAMES Inspired Nail Art!~

image

If it were up to me, I would try to forget the Hunger Games entirely. Never speak of them again. Pretend they were nothing but a bad dream…

-Katniss Everdeen, Catching Fire.

image

OMO <3333 I AM SOOOOOOO HAPPY THAT I GOT TO WATCH CATCHING FIRE with mah friends last Friday <3 It was so awesome!!! <333 Plus the new cast <3 The arena!!! ahhhh!!!!! Everything was so great, but I just wanted more arena scenes~ kekekeke (oh no I feel like President Snow XD)

image

And because the story never left me (and I hope it will never will!) I got inspired to do a quick and easy The Hunger Games inspired nail art <3

image

You’ll need: A gold polish (Deborah Lippmann Nefertiti), a black shimmering polish (Sally Hansen Midnight in NY), a hot red polish (Tony Moly TR16), a clear top coat (Caress Clear Coat), toothpicks, a plastic surface and sponges!

Ignite the sparks in three, two…

image

Start off by applying a black shimmering polish, this one from Sally Hansen has really subtle sparkles that will enhance the flame that we will make later on :)

image

THE RING~ bam bam baammmm~ Draw on a circle with the gold polish and a toothpick. I drew on the circle first before the Mockingjay cause it’ll serve as my basis on where to draw the wings, the arrow and such~ Once your happy with your ring, draw on the silhouette of the Mockingjay (good for you if you could be more detailed by drawing on its feathers!).
