Twist The Knot

Finally it comes, the end of this year. So, what have you prepared for the new year eve? Hope you'll have a great great year ahead ;)

This time i'm gonna show you my new mani. I get the inspiration from pinterest anyway hehe. Such an adorable interlocking knots from finger to finger, very cuuute! I really like it since the first time i saw it. I also made my mani just like the examples that are already on pinterest's page, i use mint color and white, and black colors for the strap.

And these are my very own version of pasel-knotted-mani, please call my baby 'twist the knot' !

Mint - Jaded by Revlon | White - Alpine Snow by O.P.I. | Black line - Black dotting pen by FaceShop

And this is how i made my twisted knot mani :D

So easy, right? I'm pretty sure all of you can make it at home. Remember, you dont need to go to the nail-salon to make one like this. If you want to go to the salon ask for the complicated one, ok? hahahaha
You just need to try and practice..

Good luck and happy (early) new year, anyway! :D

I Wish You A Merry Christmas

Finally, Happy Xmas everyone! i've been waiting to post this, and how about you? Have you seen some of the teasers of this post on my Instagram feed and Path? If you havent it's okay because you can see it here :p

I especially made a christmas edition mani for you! And i really wish that you'll have a happy and merry christmas day *hugs and kisses!*
and how about you nails, have you all made your nails for the day? Have any problem with dont-have-any-inspiration thingy? So maybe this post will answer you problem ho ho ho

This time, i'll show you my two version of christmas-nails. You know, first i tried to make a red-xmas-nails. So i was only use OPI The Spy Who Love Me as the base colour and for the pattern i drew it with dotting pen from FaceShop. Actually it wasn't that bad, but i just dont think it's good enough :p
This is how my red xmas nails turned into a cute mani (i almost thought it was soooo damn good and dont want to change it ever ever again! hahaha)

What do you think? Good enough, huh? Noooo, just wait until you see my second attemp..
I make it more more colourful than the first one.
This time i also used OPI Alpine Snow as the base colour. And i also drew reindeer, snow man, snowflake, christmas three, and SANTA CLAUS! Favorite man ever, i always wonder if he does really exist in real life hahaha
Here how i did my nails for this xmas event and finally i satisfied with my job. You know it needs 3 hours to thought about the concept, what to drew on each nails, and the painting process itself. But i'm glad it turned out sooooo cute! I should thanks this christmas atmosphere that really bring me a really good idea for my mani :D

And voila! The face behind the nails, hahaha let me wish you happy christmas.. from Santa Lady! :p

And this time i was also wearing a pretty collection from Marie Antoinette's Window, i'm soooo in love with the dresses and their details. They're just so into the christmas' atmosphere, arent they? <3

And also if you realize, there're some pretty stuffs like the mini chalk board, you can find it here:

Okay, last but not least, here some close-up pictures of my xmas-mani..
So, are they help you enough to get some inspirations about what to do with your nails, lads?
Good luck then.. and happy christmas! :)

Can I Call You My Candies?

Hello! It's already 9 days to christmas right? but no, i'm not about to post my christmas nails yet. I'll post it about D-3 pr D-4 maybe.. so just wait :p

This time i wanna show you my and my cousin's latest mani, i'm using soooo many colours this time. You can call it kinda candy-like-mani (does the name make me look like a confuse-writer?) hahahaha
Anyway, my cousin's nails that just done by me yesterday. And because we were really in a hurry so i need a nail-dryer to make hers dried faster. This nail dryer i got from a lovely nail-art-kit shop named KimKim Shop. She has sucha pretty collections of nail art stuffs.. :D

First, here is it! My cousin's, Tissa, nails. I made it as sweet as candy. And i hope you wont get any trouble with your tummy and teeth after having this post because they're contain of many sweeties.. hahaha kidding

For the pattern on every nails i made dots, lace, line, and also the combination of it. Because her nails are sooooooo tiny so i'm using dotting pen from FaceShop to make it much neater.
You can see the nail-dryer is sooo cute! It's simply adorable so i just cant avoid not to buy one :p
It's so effective to dry your nails. You dont need to blow or fan it because the nail dryer itself works like a little fan.
And one more good thing about this kit, it's so cheap. i bought it for 45.000 rupiah or it's about US$ 5.. worthy, right? :D

And last but not least, i'll show you my candy mani. As always and just like what i did on Tissa's nails, i was using pastel colours. They are:

Sparkling Pink top coat by Etude - OPI Dulce de Leche - Revlon Lily - Peach by Etude - Baby Pink by FaceShop - Lemon Drop by FaceShop - Baby Blue by FaceShop and also White Dotting Pen by FaceShop

and by using these polishes and pen, i made two kind of mani. For my left hand, i made kinda 'rainbow' mani. Combining those colours and finishing touch by the dotting pen.
And to make the rainbow, i made it layer by layer so i also need the help of the naildryer so the polishes will dried faster so i can make the rainbow more quickly than if it's dried naturally.
Here how they look like..

And for my right hand nails, i made a simple glittering mani. I'm using different colour for the base coat on each nails and i covered it with the glittering top coat from Etude. And guess how's the result? Cuteeee! The sweetness almost kill me! hahaha
Here check em out:

I may say that the pinkish glittering top coat from Etude is one of must-have-item for all of you nail-lovers. Maybe if you have no time to make your nails, you can just use it and voila, it's done very pretty :)

Seduced by The Flirty Leopard

Recently i saw so many animal prints mani on others' blogs, google, instagram, and also pinterest. They did cows, pigs, giraffes, and most of them did leopaaards! Aww, I really love the last one. You know, who dont? Leopards print can be done with any colour as long as you put the print people will know that you just did it. For example, the Katy Mani that i just did last time, the leopard print i made on my nails done with pink and gleaming purple and it still look as leopard, isnt it? :D

So, this time, i'll make it one more time (i cant handle myself not to do it because so many people made it and the results are sooo pretty!) and this time i'm using my favorite pastel colours, lemon drop, lilac, mint, and of course pink..

My left nails done with lemon-drop from FaceShop and lilac colour from Revlon. And for the spots i made it with black dotting pen from FaceShop. It really helps me recently, so easy to apply and sticked welll with the other polishes.. here they are my left nails..

What do you think? umm my first impression after i saw my lilac-lemon coloured nails with those spots i just think that.. i need to try with another colour! hahaha

Umm wait, are you curious to see the step by step?
if you dont, could you please pretend to be a lil bit curious about it? because i already make the step by step hahahahaha
here is it, the step by step to make the spots, go go go!
i make it in 4 steps and you can see it from left to right :)

And these are all that you need to make it,
1. base colour (polish)
2. spots colour (polish)
3.  dotting tools or dotting pen to make the spot outline

So, i made my second attemp by making the more flirtatious than the first one.. with pink! and after choosing some colours to be combined with pink, i choose the adorable mint colour from Revlon..
and here they are! My right hand nails painted with pink and mint, and also.. dont forget the spots! Rawr!

Those are all the spot i got, how about yours? Do you have your own version of leopard prints mani?
It's gonna be fun to see the other versions of it! yeayy :D
