Cute simple polka-dot pattern nails version 2 tutorial


Hey there.

I am BACK!
With another nail version of the polka-dotted pattern. This look is slightly different to the usual polka dots as it is more dense. Click on this link if you want a makeshift dotting tool.



I decided on a white base so that my colourful dots will stand out. A word of caution if you decide to do the same, any imperfection will stick out like a sore thumb.

I have received a fair few compliments from friends and strangers alike. They were cute but also classy.
Most people have told me that liked the combination of green and purple, as well as the blue and purple (thumb and index finger respectively), but you can play around with what you have available.




I've added a quick tutorial guide in case you're interested in replicating this pattern.

 With a bit of practice, you'll get this.




I also tried it on a dark cherry red base, with pink and white dots. It reminded me of rocky road chocolates!


I personally prefer the dark base as I can get away with mistakes ;P


Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend!

Yays and a nay


Now, this is long overdue but I have to show them to you anyway. Yay for you!

These were items sent from my awesome twinno Yenny from Korea for my birthday (Yes, my birthday is in February...... but it's not her fault, I just keep procrastinating -__-").

 

The most awesome thing though has just got to be this cute cat cup!!


I squealed when I saw it! I love it sooooo much!!


Thank you so much twinno for the lovely gifts. They arrived after I had a terrible time at work and put a massive smile on my face. It reminded me that there are so many things in life to be thankful for and one of them are great friends like you.

I still stumbled upon more trouble at work but they seemed really small and petty now. I really needed the reality check.



One sucky thing did happen though. I dropped my phone in the sea while I was in Wilson's Promontory.
It still works but goes loopy at times :(


So now... I'm using Josh's old phone which is Sony's Walkman phone while I decide on a smartphone.

The dilemma is... I feel completely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of smartphones available to choose from. Also, I am constantly debating on whether to get an iphone, Android or Windows phone.

Decisions decisions....

Cute Penguin Nail Art

I saw this these penguin nail designs while back and promised myself to try it one day.

Well, the time has finally arrived and they were good fun to make and so uber cute!! ♥♥♥♥



It's so simple, just painted white over a base colour. Wait for it to dry (I didn't, as I was to eager to create the penguins and ended up with wonky eyes) and then proceed to dot eyes and slop on some orange.

You could go with a black base but personally, I think I prefer lighter colours as they are more pleasing to the eye.


I used Rimmel's Grey Matter as my base.


As you can see I made two kinds of penguins: a chubby baby and an adult one



Cute, no? ♥
