I bought these two colors on my trip to Malaysia during Chinese New Year and wanted to do some designs with it. This is quite easy.

I did this following the tutorial here.
Probably should just study, with my Prelims next week, but I'm so good at procrastinating. *Laugh out loud* This mani is a little hard to do, harder than the usual ones that I did, with so many layers. It looks easy, but.. it was kinda challenging. I do like the little white bows!
I used OPI Pink Friday, OPI Lincoln Park at Midnight. I drew the bows using nail pens.

I did this manicure after I saw a version of it on Nailside. I swear, she does the most wonderful things with her nails!! I'm just taking inspiration from her. She's really very very creative! And she has a ton of tutorials that you can easily follow. Anyway, her tutorial for the manicure is coming right up so you can watch out for it. She did the rabbit with acrylic paints but I did mine with polishes.
Nail polishes used: OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui, Essie Set In Stones, OPI In my Back Pocket, OPI Alpine Snow, and a nail art pen to draw the rabbit outline.
My package for fimo slices came today. I'm so happy! Too bad there isn't any ribbons. I shall get it through other ways then. This is from dhgate. It took 2weeks and 3 days to reach.
This is from www.bornprettystore.com. It took exactly 2 wks to reach. I'm going to have fun coming up with manicures for these accessories!

I was looking at all the blogs I was following a while ago and I found this mani on Nailside and I decided to do it. I do like the classic color combination, red and black. It does look vampy when you focus on the black parts, and when you look at the red portion, you'll see a heart instead. You can see the link here.
I didn't use tape but freehanded the black part.
Used: OPI Big Hair... Big Nails, CG Liquid Leather
In additional, I'm also did a silver cross mani a while back. I took inspiration from my friend, who did a similar one, and tweak it a bit. I think hers look better tho. She followed a tutorial on Youtube. Sorry for the messy paints on the side of my nails. I wanted to take photos before I took off the mani, and was lazy to clean up.
Used: OPI Step Right Up!, OPI Charged Up Cherry, Beadstreet T61, Black Nail Art Polish

I'm back with leopard prints again! I decided to do a silver base because I tried it out a while ago on a nail plate and it looks pretty so I decided to do a mani on it. I had on hot pink leopard prints so I went for a more daring change and chose pink and blue. I've decided that I love blue a lot. I used to think blue was too 'off' for nails, but now... blue is my 'go to' color now.
Colors used: Base MichelleT61.
Pink Leopard Prints: OPI Panda-monium Pink, OPI Charged Up Cherry
Blue Leopard Prints: CG First Mate, Essie Borrowed and Blue
And my 2nd Order came from Gmarket. I still haven't used all these fimo yet. But I'll... Soon. I'll placed a fimo nail art here again.
I think the steel beads are too small.. I took a pic here to show how tiny it is. It's so tiny I'm sure it'll fall off even if I stick it on my nail properly. So, now I've to decide what to do with it.
And I got caught up in the whole nail polish rings. I saw the Faber Castle DIY Ring kit on sale for about $7, I think, so I bought it. I painted these immediately!

Pink and yellow Ring: Michelle B46, B56

What do you think of the Rings?

This is Essie Lapis of Luxury, a really nice dusty grey-toned blue. This is three coats, application was perfect.
I took out my nail art pens and began to draw in the details..... Pink hearts and white strips and dots to fill in. I don't really do the same mani for all fingers because I like to accentuate them so that's what I did here.
This is a really simple one that beginners can do. Just grab your favourite nail polish for base coat, and your nail art pens and start decorating your nails!
I've been eyeing the $10.90 silver and gold polishes at Etude House. I really really like their shine but they are really really out of my budget this month, especially since I have my heart set on buying long maxi dresses. And with my Uni Prelims coming right up.. Let's just say I have a lot on my plate.. =(
Hope you guys enjoy this!

I did promised to put up a mani when I received my fimo slices! So here it is! I've wanted to add this the moment I saw the snowflakes, so my blue sponge glitter mani was just waiting for the arrival of the fimo!!
I only added the fimo slices, swarovski crystals, and silver art glitter to it. It reminds me of snow, which is an irony when I've NEVER seen snow before!! The whole mani is so glittery and so shiny that I kept staring at it and examining it! Of course the Aries glitter (Rainbow #80) helped a lot with its holographic glitter. But I think it's the details that make it so attractive to me!
I love fimo now! But I shudder to think of the horror when I remove this mani! All the glitters........ *Choke*

Hey, I've got good news!
Since I'm going to participate in this Giveaway, I figure I might as well put it up here so that you can enter too. Rebecca will be giving away freebies as part of a celebration for her Blog anniversary!! I'm dying to get the plates, especially when it's so hard to get nail art things in Singapore unless you want to ship it over.
I've attached the link rebeccalikesnails so do take a look!
This is a short post because I've got to get ready for school.. >.<

I've made these earrings a long time ago and have now decided to sell them online. I'm going to test the waters of online business so please pardon me and be extra patient with me. I love design and craft since I was young so my hands have always been busy. I tend to think of it as being creative. ^^
These earrings are selling at $6. Shipping fee is $2.50 to the rest of the world and $1.50 for Singapore address. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. There is only a pair of earrings available each. All rates are in US Dollar.
If you bought the two of them, a total of $10.50 will be charged. Shipping fee $3.
Redness on the Prowl
I named this earrings as such because they make me think of a lady wearing a red dress in a ballroom.
I bought the materials for these at a shop in Jurong Point which closed down a while ago. The red jewels are actually Swarovski crystals.
These beads are given to me from my aunt. They are actually part of a bracelet but I removed them and remade them into a pair of earrings. I love how the beads look antique and the awesome details on the flowers. They do remind me of a Victorian Lady, and that's how I named the earrings.

Something bad happened today! I wanted to do newspaper nails for very long but I just couldn't bear to buy the rubbing alcohol (selling at Guardian @ $4.50) when I will probably be using it once or twice! Then my mom told me I could redeem the PassionCard points and used it to pay for things you want to buy. And so I went to Guardian today, and bought it. Except that it was the wrong one! And all it does was erased my nails!! I thought at first I pressed too hard or my polish hasn't dried yet, so I put on Seche Vite Top Coat, yet it totally erased my polish, like a nail polish remover!!! I'm so shocked and disappointed!! Now what am I supposed to do with my bottle of Denatured Alcohol??
Anyway, back to the nail design, I thought of this when I was eating ice cream. For some reason, I really like to put food on my nails. I think they are super cute. However instead of the usual brown ice-cream cone, I put a grey background and dripping chocolate with green and blue sprinkles on it. I think I should practice on making the 'drips' more realistic.
When I showed my bf, he told me it look like some retro modern art instead. *Sigh
Still, I love it so much I wore it for 3 days before I took it off. I went to meet my old classmates with it on and they said it was beautiful! It always made me so happy to receive praises. ^^

Polishes used: OPI Skull and Glossbones, OPI Get on the Expresso Lane, Essie Turquoise and Caicos, Essie Lapis of Luxury
I bought 2 nail art pens at TheFaceShop today. It was selling at $5.80. I am so happy when I saw it, especially since there is a black pen! I have been looking for it for so long, and I didn't want to buy it online. Etude House used to sell them but the black ones ran out a long time ago so I only got the white and pink ones. So I got the Silver and Black ones today. I was also hesitating between buying their super shiny silver and gold polish. Since it costs $10.90, I had to put it back since it'll put a dent in my wallet. Such is the life of a poor university student.
