Repainted my toes

I've been so busy with classes lately! Learning acrylics now and I got praises from my teacher! he he he. Since young, I've always had a thing with brushes and colours... I love the way the monomer reacts with the polymer and I have to use the brush to create the sculpture...

Okie, I think you're lost and don't understand what I'm talking about.

Now, pics on my own toes. Did them yesterday night. I love the flowers I drew! Got Japanese Sakura feeling....... (I love singlish. haha) and the flowers go very well with the nail polish! Using OPI - My private jet.

OPI - Black Cherry Chutney

Did a classic pedicure with a foot scrub plus 2 nail art on the big toes. This customer of mine prefers to have long long long long long toe nails. Unfortunately some of nails chipped and therefore I have to file it down slightly to make them equal in length. IMO, I still think they're long but she likes them this way. As long as she's happy. (:

I really like this colour! It's actually dark dark purple-ish shimmer-ish black-ish. Got it?

My toes

I did my own pedicure before I went Phuket. Holiday nails! Somehow I managed to make my own toes look retarded in the photo.... ha ha. Gold gold colour with black french with tiny polka dots! 2 photos below. I think the close up pic looks better. Can see details!

Ok I'll blog regularly... :)

Chocolate Mousse

Been busy with lessons ever since I'm back from Phuket. Especially since I'm learning acrylic now. Anyway, pics!

I applied cuticle oil and took the photo, this explains why the nails looked slighty matte. It's actually very shiny cos it's Seche's top coat! I love that top coat... quick dry and superb finishing.

A closer view. This lady has very nice nails and this colour compliments her fingers! Using OPI-Chocolate Mousse.

Handpainted Roses

I actually started off with painting the red for my assignment but decided to change another shade of red. Not wanting to waste the nail tips, I put what I learn into use and painted roses on it! I think this will be popular for CNY! ha ha ha. I'll try to create another set using greyish white as the nail colour and paint the roses black. I think it will have a different feeling altogether.

Leaving for Phuket with my ex colleagues in the morning! I'll be back next Monday, 18th Aug. Appointments resume when I'm back!

OPI - I only drink champagne + Chicago get a manicure!

I did 2 sets of nails today. One looks very champagne and I heart that colour! The other is more reddish purplish and it suits the person very much!

Click the pictures to enlarge!

OPI - Chicago get a manicure!
The picture is not really showing the actual colour. Close but not the exact shade. The colour is more like mixing purple and red together. But still, nice shade! I love all the colours with a tinge of red. Simple doggy footprints and dots as the nail art. Very cute hor? Ha.

OPI - I only drink champagne
This lady came to me with short fingernails and asked me to choose a nail colour + nail art for her. I chose this champagne colour cos it will compliment her short fingernails! You don't need to have long fingernails to have it painted! Short is nice too. Hand drawn the little black flowers to match the champagne colour. She's also a future makeup artist... thus she needs to have nice nails to hold the makeup brushes... ha ha.

More Nail Polishes!

I went to collect my nail polishes earlier from my cousin who is back from US. So many colours!! I spent so much time arranging the polishes on the shelve, painting the colours on fake tips (easier for customers to see), taking pics... It took me around 3 hours!

I took pictures of different views of my polishes.

The reds.....

ORLY's Sugar Coated Series. Pastel colours. Sweet sweet!

A picture of all my polishes! Happy happy happy happy happy happy super happy super happy!
