Merry Christmas Plaids!

Alrights! Here it is, the 12th of 12 Christmas Nails Series! I hope you have all been enjoying the looks so far. Here with me is a classic Christmas Plaids design. I was very much inspired by Vicky from The Nail Artiste in her Christmas Plaids and Cute Doggie post! So yeap, I had to attempt one myself. And what's better than to end the whole series with the very Merry Christmas Plaids? ;)

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Hi everyone! I have here the 11th of 12 Christmas Nails Series. And its inspired by the very song titled "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" the one particularly sung by Dean Martin. I love this song. One of my favourites for Christmas, like a classic. Always puts me into Christmas mood anytime! And despite its title, this song makes me all fuzzy and warm just by listening to it. My favourite stanza in this song is:

When we finally kiss good night
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'd be warm

Sigh Its a really cute Christmas song in my opinion. Hahaha! I sure do wish malls these days would play more of these good old songs.

O Holy Night, The Stars Are Brightly Shining!

Heya! For my 10th Christmas Nail look, I've actually done this much much earlier, but I was saving it till my bestie opens her present. Wouldn't want to ruin any surprises :) 

This look is really simple. It was originally an 'experiment' to see how the effect would be and I ended up falling in love with the combo and got another one for my dear dear friend. And they were so lovely together and reminded me of the song, O Holy Night. (I'm not saying my nails look holy, but they were real pretty) :P Haha!! But, before I show you the final look, I thought I'd show you just how beautiful the colour is on its own.

Oh, Yellows and Greens?

Morning! I'd  be posting up a 3 more posts later in the day, in order to complete my 12 Christmas Nail Series. Haha! I totally wasn't in time for before Christmas. Hmm, I should include time management in my New Year's Resolutions. =P

So here's another Chevron design (yes, kinda hooked to it) and this were inspired by what I wore on Christmas Day. I've been addicted to muddy yellow/dirty yellow colours ever since I saw it on OPI Germany Collection, Don't Talk Bach to me. Haha! So, since I've taken a liking in that colour, I couldn't help but got myself a cardigan of similar colour. I really liked it! It was rather hard thinking what tank top to go with it. I thought of orange/coral/red, but they didn't quite match up to the "dirtiness" of the knitted cardigan. How about teals? Too striking. I was panicky for a moment wondering if I should have gone for last minute shopping. I thought for awhile, which tank top I have that I've not worn? Ahh! A Christmas green tank top! Perfect combo! And a brown slack to match the tops. Since I really enjoyed what I wore on Christmas, I thought of putting them down on my nails.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hello everyone! I'm a little late, okay, about two day's late. Still, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!! How was your Christmas? I certainly had such a wonderful time bonding with family and friends and tons of fun opening presents! I've finally found time to post these nails that I've did for Christmas! I do love them so much!  I do however, have a little story behind the design. I was suppose to stay up and decorate the tree together with my brother. Unfortunately, I was too exhausted and accidentally dozed off on the couch! *yikes*. So when I woke up which was about 3 am in the morning, I was kinda sadden to see the tree already decorated  - oh, don't get me wrong! He did a fabulous job! I was just sad, cause I dozed off after promising I'd decorate it with him. So yeah, my poor brother. But you know, though I was a little sad, I couldn't help but sabotage the tree a little bit. I remember seeing this beautiful medium light blue bows that I had wanted to include before I went into shut down mode. =P The theme was Forestry Green and Brown/Orange. So now you know how the blue ribbon sabotaged the whole theme XD

Red On Teal Christmas

Hello all! This marks the 7th of 12 Christmas Nails Series, and I have 7 more days till Christmas arrives! I wonder if I can make it =/ Hahaha! 

I really do think ribbons are one of girls' best friend - accessory. It could be dainty, sophisticated, fun, sweet or weird or smart just by styling them differently. And, somehow or rather it has got into my mind that I'd dislike having ribbons on my nails because... doesn't seem to suit me. I'm not the sweet kind....Yeah, ribbons on nails always give me the sweet-girl feeling. Never had the thought of putting ribbon on my nails occur to me until I saw this very very artfully fun Beautiful Knee High Boot Socks

Glamorous Christmas

Hello!! I have here today the 6th look of 12 Christmas Nails Series (half more to go!) that I thought would be great for Christmas Eve Parties! So, for this look, I wanted to have a sparkling black base that I thought would go lovely together with black or purple dinner Christmas dress. Unfortunately, my holographic black is officially unusable. But I do have great toppers that has gorgeous shimmers! Also, this is my first ever successful tape manicure (haha!).

I Wanna Wish You A Merry Christmas!

Erm, a bit too early? ;P

Hey all! This is the fifth installation of 12 Christmas Nails Series and what I have here is skittle Christmas Nails which was a recreation of these gorgeously made Edible Christmas Cupcake Toppers which I've come across in Etsy. Well, I hadn't quite come up with a title suitable for this look but a trip to the mall landed me with this title. Since it's nearing Christmas, needless to say Christmas Songs were playing throughout the mall and among the songs that played was Feliz Navidad. I came home, ready to blog. Looking at my mani, nothing else came into mind except the words from the song - I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas~ 

Lacqueerisa: A Very Merry Christmas!

Peppermint Candy Canes

Hello again! Though this post actually kinda links with my previous posts, I've decided to keep it less messy and do a separate one. I've been waiting to do this nail art! Its inspired by Red and White striped Peppermint Candy Canes! And this marks the fourth of the 12 Christmas Nails Series in my list!

Lacqueerisa: Peppermint Candy Canes
You know, I really think Red and White is one of the classic theme for Christmas aside from the classic Green, Red and Gold/Yellow combinations - the kind of Christmas themes I'd never get tired of. I have planned and intended to achieve this look by water marbling technique. Thought I'd go ahead, give myself the super boost to attempt it. Sure, I tried but it was a total disaster! The colours won't even spread properly on the water. *Frustrated* Have you ever had moments when you just need to get that image that you've imagined in your mind out of your head? Well, this is one of those moments.

Lacqueerisa: Peppermint Candy Canes
Since marbling just won't work for me, I figured I'd just draw them on. Of course, the effect is not as nice as marbled, but the best I could do since I really need to get the image out. Haha!! Deciding how to place the curves was tough but I do like the idea of drawing the curves because it has much lesser clean ups to deal with. LOL!! 

Lacqueerisa: Peppermint Candy Canes
I debated awhile if I should have the glitters top over the design or sandwich in between and finally decided they look better below the red lines. For this look, I've used 3 coats of Tip Top French Manicure White and 1 coat of F4 Polish Peppermint Stix. Drew the curvy stripes with a small nail art brush using Revlon Red and Revlon Pretty in Papaya. Seal everything with 2 coats of Seche Vite Top Coat. 

Lacqueerisa: Peppermint Candy Canes
Dang, I wish I had Candy Canes to pose with in these pictures! Time to get those candy canes!! Anyway, I hope you enjoy these Peppermint Candy Canes inspired nails! Seeing these really got me craving for peppermint candy canes! 

Erm, Happy Peppermint Candy Cane Monday! Hope none of you are having Monday Blues! See ya all in next post. ;)

F4 Polish Peppermint Stix!

Hello!! Today I'm very excited to share about a prize that I've won in a giveaway held by F4 Polish at their facebook page. It was a giveaway held to celebrate the mark of their 1,000 fans like on their facebook page.  I was really looking forward to receive this, because I got to choose any polish of my choice and get it at JUMBO size :D I've chosen one from their Christmas Collection which is Peppermint Stix! I chose it because everywhere I went, I've only been seeing Red & White and Peppermints! The name is so catchy too! Plus, I really wanted a red and white glitter, this is just perfect! Thank you again to Jenn, Lacey and Lexy, the ladies behind F4 Polish for this wonderful prize!

Ho-Ho-Ho Christmas Nails!

Hello once again! I know I'm late again. So here's the 3rd Christmas nails of the 12 Christmas Nails Series! It was rather impromptu, as I only know in one of my series I wanted to attempt what I defined as Urban Christmas tree. I only had a rough idea in my mind and I've not been slacking exactly, but been pacing around trying to put the idea together so I can finally show something decent here.

Vintage Christmas

Hey all! This is the 2nd NOTD for Christmas of my 12 Christmas Nail Design series. And though I've called it Vintage Christmas, its really a mix between vintage and retro. This design was inspired by this Retro Christmas Card I saw in Etsy (view it here) but the colours are really vintage.

Yay! My first Indie!

Edited Note: Shimmer Polish has informed me that the labeling was wrong, this is not Nicole, but Eva. Which is a good - this means its available at her shop in etsy (here) if you wish to purchase :) Therefore, in the following pictures, please ignore the label ;D
_____ ____________________________________________________ ______

Hello everyone! A few weeks ago Shimmer Polish had a little giveaway to 8 winners to celebrate her milestone upon reaching 1,600 likes on facebook. What joy it was, when I saw my name being announced as one of the 8 lucky winners! Omgosh! Totally didn't see that coming! What a wonderful surprise! :D And just a couple of days ago I've finally received this goodie! - yay!

A Touch of Blue

Good Afternoon! How are all of you feeling today? It is Monday and its exactly 36 days before Christmas arrives! I'm getting pretty excited, are you? From today onward, I'd be posting Christmas themed nails on every three days. Hopefully, I'd manage and be on time to post them but there's going to be so much to prepare for the season, while I'm excited to do this, I'm afraid of not being able to keep track (haha!). But at the end of it all, I do hope to be able to finish all 12 Christmas Themed Nails before Christmas comes knocking at my door! ;P

My Revlon Stash So Far...

Hello! It's been sometime, I know. Sorry about the lack of updates. Was busy getting these swatches done. I figured its by time I show you my stash of Revlons that I've owned and accumulated over the years.

Revlon - Midnight Affair
Revlon - Midnight Affair
Revlon Midnight Affair - The name says it all! This is my go-to blue. It is my kind of ideal navy blue to wear. When I look at this colour, I couldn't shake off the image of pairing this nail polish to a dark blue navy velvet outfit. But weather in Malaysia is just too hot to wear any velvet clothes. =P Anyway, last Wednesday (14 November), was World Diabetes Day and I looked through my stash and realised I lacked of stunning blues, I've sport this blue to show my support for this awareness. Right, who doesn't know about diabetes? We've all heard about it over and over. But have we taken the necessary steps to prevent diabetes? So, let's all reduce our sugar intakes for a better future! The colour is gorgeously pigmented, good to go with two coats.

Happy Diwali!

To all my readers who are celebrating Diwali,


And I have with me today, are nails inspired by Henna designs! I've always find Henna designs such a beautiful decoration on hands and feet. Its pretty unfortunate I've not the chance to try on my hand yet. Needless to say, I'd love to! My sister had the privilege to try one at her workplace and the lady did such a stunning job! I really like the simple yet beautiful design, so I thought I'd translate that onto my nails! ;)

Can you guess the flower?

Hello fellow readers! I do apologise for not posting much lately, been having a little battle of inspiration and execution. =P Anyway, I've finally come up with a decent NOTD to share, and it's inspired by one of my favourite flower - can you guess what it is?

Oh, look! Butterfly~

Hello Readers! Here with me today, is a nail art that's been playing in my head for the past few weeks and I've finally sat down and get it done yesterday. (haha!) Inspired by one of God's magnificent creature; butterfly! So, off I went searching for ideas and what did I find? Too many beautiful butterflies! I was so inspired, ideas rushed in like running water! It took me awhile to finally decide on Richmond Birdwing Butterfly as the inspiration. But there were so many that I wanted to do! So, I guess you could expect to see more of butterfly inspired nail art on my blog in times to come! ;)

They Kinda Look Like Tomato

'they kinda look like tomato', says my brother. - haha!

Hello dear readers! Today's nails were actually just inspired by colours. Although I had initially wanted to do something entirely different but it didn't turn out well. So, while I was removing the failed nail art to do a new one, I saw how pretty the red bleed into the green on the cotton pad and decided to achieve that look.

Abstract Pebbles

Good Morning Everyone! Today's nails is a fulfillment of a previously promised attempt for another mustard & grey inspired nail art. I really love the combination of yellow/mustard with greys. I think they are just fabulous together! Aside from loving this palette, I've enjoyed looking at pebbles arranged in a framed of photo or picture showcasing a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. So today's nails, is pretty straight forward. I decided to do abstract pebbles.

One of my favourite food!

it's Dinner time! And I'm definitely craving for some pumpkin goodness! Perhaps tomorrow? Heya All!! 

Its near Halloween and dear Pumpkins are EVERYWHERE! Hahahaha!! It's just weird how Malaysians seems to be celebrating everything! ;) So while I'm not one who celebrates Halloween, I'm sure one who celebrates the goodness of Pumpkins! Pumpkin soups, pumpkin dishes, steamed pumpkins....*drools* So my nails today are well, Pumpkin inspired! When one has an orange as fabulous as Mango Tango, there's no use resisting pumpkins on nails! (i'm overusing the word 'pumpkins' lols)

The nail designs are inspired by Robin Moses' Pumpkin Patch. I liked that she made use of the different shapes of pumpkins. Hehehe. And I got the idea of utilizing flakies as 'lights' from Vicky of The Nail Artiste. They are both such amazing talented artist!

Blues, Teals & Everything Nice!

Heya all! This nail look is inspired by The Swatchaholic in her post dedicated for Mary and her mom, Voola. Well, I do not know who Mary is, nor who Voola is but I do know the pain of loosing the people you love and have a soft spot for anyone who has lost their love ones before. With that said, I'm dedicating this to both of them too ♥

The All Different Spots

Hello fellow readers! How was your weekend? Hope you had a blast if not a relaxing one! I'd be sharing with you about different spots today. Sure, you might ask "err, aren't these all the same kind?" well, yes. But hey, look a little deeper. There's hardly any alike one another. Each one of them uniquely different. I'm sure most of us can relate to this. No matter how similar we are to each other, there's going to be something that makes us different. (I do give exceptions to identical twins). And this makes the world a better place - oh you know, there's variety so we won't get too bored with one another. 

Ahaha! nah,while that's true (somewhat) I don't intend on talking about heavy (seemingly heavy) topic. I like my blog to be light hearted and cheery. To tell you the truth, today's nails were something done out of randomness. I was wondering what to do on my nails and grabbed two bottles of polish which turns one had a big brush, the other a very narrow brush. Painted a good two coats of base colour and using the narrow brush to dot on the spots. Of course I did wonder if I should do a uniform one, and went "bah, why should these spots be so confined? There you go free movements for all of you! But in a certain confined space". I couldn't help it. I love them so much that I only want them to remain on my nails and within the closed walls of the nails.

Ohh, I do luv denim (2)

A very Chilly Day to you all :D I'm so glad today's a really chilly day. You can say I'm one who prefers chilly weather than hot ones - if you haven't guessed the reason, its because I get to yearn for Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Love that drink! Its just too bad drinks like this isn't so available around. Though I yearn them, I can't quite feed the craving. Let's just hope there's plenty when December comes :) 

To continue my love for denims, I have another denim nails to show. Can't put a good painted navy base to waste now, can I? ;P So for this Bleached Denim II look, I've used Saran/cling wrap technique.Topping off with a matte top coat (unfortunately, you can see brush drags there) I honestly hadn't quite notice the dragging until I viewed the pictures on computer. =/

So how do you think they turn out? I love the thumb the best. It was the first one done and the one with the best denim looking outcome. I dot on two antique silver on the denim to create buttons but... yeah you could see that they were too close together. I did like the effect achieve on the ring finger which  is why I decided to just let it be and improve on future tries. Well, at the very least, now I know what don't work. :)

Ohh, I do Luv Denim! ♥

Good morning all of you! Let's see a show of hands of all those who share the same love for denims! *raises both hands* lol. Okay, about a week ago another gift prize from Tip Top Nails South Africa arrived on my doorstep! And there's a lot of goodies in it - what a sweet surprise! I'd talk more about it in the coming days. This is going to be quite a long post... hahaha!

Let's Get Scribbling!

Good Morning Readers! It's been awhile since my last post. So, I've been blessed to receive more gifts from Tip Top Nails South Africa (Website here) (Facebook page here) and that's all thanks to God and their generosity! And to show my gratefulness, I'd be featuring nail art using their nail polishes for the coming days (hopefully I won't get ideas blockage! lol). Look forward to it! ;)

Today starts off with the three wonderful creme colours I've got from my first winning :D Oh the joy!! If you've missed it, I've swatches are here. I've been wanting to do this for quite some time but have yet to be able to come up with a design that's suitable then. And you know how idea blockage can be so frustrating! Somehow the thought of 'No ideas? Just get scribbling till something comes up!' sprung up in my head and that's exactly the idea I went with.

I did kept to a certain rule set by myself when doing these, red to be always (from your view on screen) left side and the blue to be on the right. I find it fun to set a limit and see how we'd push it. I guess this is why many nail bloggers (including myself) had fun doing nail art challenges. ;)

And that's all for now. See you tomorrow! :P

Gradients On A Beautiful Cloudy Morning

Hello Readers! Sorry for the lack of updates. Was on a few days holiday and I've just finally found time to post this gradient nails I did on my short holiday. The colours are inspired by the colours of the outfit I put together--unfortunately, I didn't have much time to photograph, I didn't take any pictures of my outfit though (ah, pity). And on one of the days during my holiday, we went to the beach. Its been quite sometime since I last been to one. It was early and the weather was so good. Not too hot, not even cold. Just nice. And while I was busying myself photographing the beautiful scenery by the beach, I took the chance to photograph the gradient nails.

Woops, miss a little bit of clean ups there. Hopefully, the excuse that these were done under low lighting is acceptable :P And here's a quick view of the beach :

Ahahah, I couldn't resist putting up a picture of the waves 'crawling' onto the shore. Such a cute sight! I really had a great time at the beach there. Played Frisbee for the first time! But of course, nothing like the real game. Just a simple beginner's sort of play. It was really simple, but fun! It was a really beautiful morning we were early, and had the beach all to ourselves! Nothing's better than having a whole huge space to run about freely X) 

And that concludes my post for today. Hope you readers have enjoy the simple gradient NOTD. Can't believe weekend is already here! Have a great weekend!

Going Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness!

Hello everyone! October's the month for Breast Cancer Awareness and to show my support, I'd be showing you a simple NOTD. I really wanted to create something soft and subtle to portray the delicate beauty in ladies. I thought about the beautiful soft feather manicure I've been seeing around for the past few months but decided against that. And so I went with gradient borders. Cause I really like the idea of slightly coloured edges around the nails.

Now, who likes Cupcakes? I sure do!

Good Saturday Morning y'all!! Its a really lovely morning over here. Hope yours is just as lovely, or better! Today's notd is inspired by Cupcakes - somewhat. Well, this NOTD wasn't originally made for cupcakes. It was actually inspired by digital black and white noises. Carrying the noises inspiration with me, I went ahead stippling on my holographic black polish and they ended up looking like McFlurry Oreo. I paused and stared at it for quite awhile. No matter how I look at it, they don't look anything like digital black and white noises. The longer I stared, the more it look like Oreo. So, I go "what the heck, I'd just make this Oreo inspired!". Then, I recalled I wanted to do a cupcake inspired manicure in conjunction of "Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer" event. Well, don't you think Oreo Cupcakes sounds absolutely mouth watering? ;)

Mint Jeans Pocket

Hello all~ So I've finally got my pictures taken, edited and now, they are ready to be shown!! So today's NOTD is inspired by a really beautiful mint jeans shorts I saw on etsy. I was anxious actually, unsure if I could really carry out the idea that spring to my head when I saw the shorts. Its nothing too complicated though, just wanted to create pocket jeans look on my nails (which would somewhat be dashed border/framed nails?). And.... I'm satisfied with the results! Nah, I REALLY LOVE THIS! :D I think its great to wear this nail look on days when you want nail art on your nails but don't want them 'loud'.

And here are the nail polishes used and the faithful toothpick :

Bloop - (name unknown) Its a shimmery white with subtle pink undertones.

By the way, is there any matte top coat that you know of that has a big brush? I find it hard to give a smooth application of matte top coat on my thumb's nail. =/
