Fall Nails: Saran Wrap

Hi! I am so happy that my exams are finally over. It's already sembreak season for me. Haha. Two more days until I go home to my hometown -- Davao. I won't be able to bring with me my whole nail polish collection (because that would be crazy) but I'll still try to post some nail arts over the break. I will be bringing some plates so might as well use them, right?

This is a bit late for fall but I had this idea since last month. I just had a lot of things to read so I wasn't able to create it. 

For this nail art, I used saran wrap technique for my base and stamped it with MoYou London Pro 04. I then topped it with GirlStuff Forever Magic Matte.

I used different colors of polishes - red, yellow, orange and brown. Here are some close-up shots.

I didn't notice until I was already editing the photos that I did a bad clean-up for my index finger. :( I already used up my Liquid Palisade, hence, the mess. I can't wait for my new tube of Liquid Palisade to arrive.  

My matte topcoat smudged the stamping. :( Booo. I've only been using my trusted SV to top my stamping. But for this nail art, I wanted it to be matte. It just destroyed it. It's not very obvious in real life but I am very meticulous with my nail art so I notice the flaws. Haha. 

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

Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Art

Hi. As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Being in the medical field, I definitely support this campaign. 

For this nail art, I used Nature Republic in Lavender Pink and Bench Paintbox Italian Plum. For the glitters, I used OMG Candy Crash. I then did a freehand of a pink ribbon, which is the international symbol of the campaign. I finished it with GirlStuff Matte Topcoat. 

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

Bloody Heart with Heart Nail Stencils + tutorial

I was supposed to post this nail art last week but my internet connection wasn't cooperating. :( But I think this nail art is very appropriate for my 3rd long exams. We are now studying the diseases of the heart, red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells. T_T I really can't wait for our sembreak! 

Going back, my base for this nail art is Bobbie Fruitty Smoothie. It is a cream polish with neon hex glitters. I had to use 3 coats because it was a bit on the sheer side. 

I applied my hearts nail stencils and sponged a red polish over it. For my ring finger, I used my straight nail stencils to create the triangle. I finished it with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Here is a close-up shot. 

Here is my photo collage tutorial for this nail art:

That's it for this post! :) I still need to study for tomorrow's exam which is Neurology. :|
Thank you for reading!
