Peaceful Moons

Hey everyone! I am finally back with a post 🙂 I decided to continue on with the 31dc2013 even though I am a few months late, but its better late than never right? Haha!

Well the theme for Day 18 was Half Moons and I decided to try out some Watercolour Nails. I found out about this method when Chalkboard Nails did it for Day 7 of the challenge and I loved the effect! To me it felt like a mystical and enthralling spell…

The tutorial can be found on Beautygeeks and after watching it, this is what I came up with!

I only used two colours for this look: Topshop Airplane and Zoya Kimber. I specifically chose this two as they blended well together to give the effect of peaceful waters.

31DC2013: Day 17

Hey there! Today being day 17 of the 31DC2013, it’s time for Glitter nails! 🙂 Since I have already done a glitter gradient, I thought it would be fun to do a mani with glitters of different shapes and sizes. So I went through my small polish stash and found four glitter polishes that could work together. They are Orly Embrace (index), Faceshop SL211 (accent), Funky Fingers Mermaid Lagoon (pinkie). Unfortunately, I don’t know the brand of the polish on my middle finger as I got it from a nail swap and there is no brand name on the bottle. However, it does state the name of the polish which is Blueberry Swirl! 🙂 I used topshop airplane as my base colour. After adding the glitters, I finished off with matte top coat from etude house and this is the finished look!

31DC2013: day 9-Rainbow Nails!!!

Hi everyone 🙂 Day 9 of the 31DC2013 means that it’s time for some Rainbow Nails! When I read the theme, I immediately knew I wanted to do a rainbow cake mani so I went in search of some pretty pictures as inspiration. Among the many, I found this picture by AnisBakery super cute and easy to recreate on nails, so here it is! You can also check out the picture on the original website here 🙂

I tried to recreate this image on my middle finger but somehow it ended up looking not like a slice of cake (sorry about that!) :/ As for my index finger, I did some slices of cake and filled the rest with rainbow coloured polka dots. For my ring finger, it has swirls and my pinkie has lines of the different colours of the rainbow 😀

This is my rainbow nails!!
