Rose Stickers Over Gold Checkered Mani

Love and hate mani.

HATE -- This is a disaster.  Look how my rapid dry top coat made my gold polish looked weird and bumpy!  I tried to fix it but it is still very visible on pictures.  Speaking of pictures, my camera died on me.. so those were from my phones. 

LOVE -- I love how sparkly it is, lol!  The nail stickers are cute... made me think of doing some valentine themed mani :)

Happy Friday!

Pink and Purple Wedding Mani

On Saturday, the 29th -- I will be attending a friend's wedding.  Their motif - from invitation, wedding souvenirs, decorations, bride's maid dress, etc are all pink and purple.  I am thinking of having coordinating mani as well :)

I'm experimenting and here are some ideas.
* on thumb and ring fingers - my first water marble. YAY!!! I like how it turned out on thumb but not the one on the ring finger.  I don't know why there were bubbles... sheeesshhh.. guess I need more practice!
* on pointer and middle fingers - I put rhinestones in red, pink and purple. 
* or should i just wear "Candy Pink" alone like the one on my pinky?

Which one is better? Or maybe I'll think of something else, lol.

Looks Like Christmas!

I've seen this kind of design in a lot of nail blogs and youtube videos.  Sorry, I wasn't able to name all of you... and I will not take the credit.  I thought the design is beautiful and pretty easy to make :)  Makes me think of Christmas... hmmm...

Excuse me for the excessive cuticle oils. My cuticles were sooooo dry!!! :'(

I started this mani with a gradient glitter nails with green/hint of yellow on a pearly white background/ base.  It was fun to do using sponge technique! 
And the planning stage pic LOL! I got bored in the office and drew what I'll do with my nails.  I planned to do some vines in green but when I finished the flowers, I thought of just leaving it just like that.  I also didn't follow what I have planned for for the thumb.   Happy Sunday! :)

I Suck At Stamping and My M&M's

Yes, I do.  I never posted any mani using stamping... Sigh!  :'(  I'm practicing now but I am thinking of doing free hand instead... oh well!  Should a new template inspire me?  :)

OK - now for the mani -- as much as I like doing my nails, I love eating sweets too! 

Happy weekend guys!

Cherry Blossoms on My Toes

OK - I've seen a lot of designs featuring cherry blossoms.  They are all pretty!  But I have not seen it done on toe nails.  Tried it and I think I failed.  It's soooo hard to do nail art on toes, blimey!  So I cheated using flower stickers... so I guess this is not cherry blossoms after all :(

(pardon my feet, I actually don't like them)

It sucks when stickers are rolling up!  I'll try to do better next time.

Two Pics from My Vault

Happy Sunday! Sharing to you two nail designs that I made during may absence... which one do you like? :)

This one I saw from Katrina's.  Of course I can never be as good as her so here's an attempt to perfect the dotted tips!

So here's another floral mani (hope you are not getting sick of florals!).  Flower stickers over somewhat dark grayish teal (I actually forgot which polish I used, I suck I know!) and Mode Cosmetic's Diamonte glitter polish.
