On the prowl…

*Purchased By Me

Hey lovelies, Happy Tuesday! (:

Quick post today- this manicure was done quite sometime back but somehow I never posted it, so here’s its time to shine on the blog today. It’s a simple manicure really, done using Docile polishes, namely D217 & D218 as well as a black Uniball Signo gel pen.


I did the leopard print as an accent french tip(sort of french tip, considering I didn’t really leave it as a naked nail) using my gel pen over Docile 218, a gorgeous shimmery silver. The other nails were done using Docile 217, an almost gunmetal silver-grey polish.

All nails were around 2-3 coats if I recall correctly, and absolutely shimmered under the light. These photos were taken late at night as that was when I was doing my swatching…





31DC2013: Day 13-Animal Print

Hello there! Sorry for not posting yesterday as I out doing my project :/ For day 13 of the 31DC2013, the theme was Animal Print. At first I was planning to use my leopard print mani but after some thought, I decided to switch to a nemo fish print instead!

My mani was based on this picture, which is available on this website.


For this look, I used Zoya Thandie as my base colour and the white polish is from the brand sasatinnie. (which I purchased at sasa!) I then drew in the black lines with my 0.38 uniball signo pen.

This is the finished look!

OMD Challenge- Day 6: Neon

*Purchased By Me

Hey everyone! I’ll be out today with the bf so I’ve scheduled today’s post for the OMD Challenge. (: The theme is Neon so break out your sunglasses to shield those retinas from some searing bright nail art! 😀

Okay honestly, the only polish which I consider neon is butter LONDON Trout Pout… I definitely was limited in choices for today’s theme! So don’t worry, my photos aren’t blindingly bright. (:


I decided to pair this lovely bright coral/cantaloupe polish with China Glaze For Audrey. The two polishes really popped against each other! (: Also, when in doubt/lack of ideas of what to do…go for leopard print.

The black is done using a Uniball Signo gel pen, as usual! (:


I think my leopard prints ended up in a sort of funky giraffe/leopard mix though. Oh wells. The oddly-shaped spots are rather quirky and cute to me! ^^


I seldom wear neons on my nails as my eyes will really hurt to look at my fingers… but I definitely would love to wear this combination again, when I’m thinking of going bolder! 😀 I wonder whether this mani would pass off in university…


What do you guys think of this giraffe-leopard print? (:
