Flower Power

I have some extra time to paint nails so here's another nail art for you. 

I used FUN (Fab Ur Nails) 15 image plate for the stamped flowers. Using my DIY jellies, I colored them to achieve a leadlight look. 

I also used some dried flowers from Born Pretty Store. I wonder if there's a technique in using these flowers. I really had difficulty putting them in place. Any suggestions?

Here's a close up shot of the flowers. What do you think? :)

The dried flowers came in a pack of 12. I love that they came in different colors. However, I did not like the fact that they are so fragile. The flowers easily came off of their stem. If you're using dried flowers, remember to handle them with care!  

You can order your own set from Born Pretty Store. Don't forget to use my discount code 'BRH10' for a 10% off your purchase. :) 

Here's another shot of the nail art.

That's it for this post! Thanks for reading! :)

Alice in Wonderland - White Rabbit

Hi! If you've read my previous post, then you know that I am joining MoYou London's nail art challenge. The theme for this week is 'White Rabbit'. I definitely had a hard time coming up with a good design. Sadly, I don't have a clock image which would be perfect for the time-conscious rabbit. I just used what I had and tried to give justice to the white rabbit. The color combination is inspired by the white rabbit's costume. :)

Plates used:
MoYou London Princess 09
MoYou London Fairytale 04

Polishes used:
Maybelline Color Show Sweet Sunshine
Maybelline Color Show Keep up the Flame
Maybelline Color Show Silver Gleam
Maybelline Color Show Blueberry Ice
MoYou London Baby Blue 
Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat

Here are some close-up shots: 

That's it for this post! Thank you for reading! :)

Alice in Wonderland - Queen of Hearts

Hi. I'm really sorry for the long hiatus. I didn't have the inspiration to do my nails for the previous weeks. Hopefully, I am back to blogging for good unless my subjects go crazy again. Haha.

MoYou London had a free shipping offer which ended on Friday. I decided not to purchase any plates but during the last minute, I went on a shopping spree. Can't wait for my new plates to arrive!

If you are following them on Instagram (@moyou_london) then you already know about their nail art contest for this month. One has to post 1 nail art per week depending on the Alice in Wonderland character of that week. This week's theme is Queen of Hearts. I had to go through my plates many times just to find the right image that would represent the Red Queen. Here's my take on it.

For index, middle and ring finger, I used L'oreal Macaron Noisette as my base. I stamped it with MoYou London Suki 07. I then applied my straight nail stencils and painted the sides with China Glaze Poinsettia. Using a thin brush, I applied Maybelline Gold's Night Out on the sides.

For my thumb and pinky finger, I used Barry M Matt White as my base then stamped it with MoYou London Princess 09. With my red OPI Sheer Tints, I colored the roses with leadlight technique. The sheer tint looks red in the bottle but in real life, it's actually more pink and violet than red. :( Maybe I should just make my own jellies for leadlight.

This nail art is inspired by this dress that I found on Google.

Here are some close-up shots.

That's it for this post! Thank you for reading! :)
