Complementing Squares

A BIG HELLO to all of you!! *Waves!!* I've been unable to post for awhile and I've missed sharing nail art and thoughts with you! I actually got them done by last Saturday, and believe me I was very eager to show you guys. Unfortunately, my computer has gotten so ill that it will not boot up to Windows anymore. *sigh!* No matter what I did, even command prompt isn't helping. During times like this, I wish I had a big brother to help me out. So, for the past few days I've been using my sister's laptop and all her other gadgets to feed my online needs (mwah mwah! Love you, Sis!). But, the laptop's screen has this weird blue/purplish tint to it. And a little too bright though I've set the brightness 0. Which has caused me to not wanna post from the laptop. I did a little googling about the issues, looks like it isn't an uncommon thing. Though I still don't know the proper way to solve the issue, I decided to "colour correct" the screen by using the calibrate colours function. It's still not colour accurate though, but hopefully the nails turn out to be alright and all.. haha!!

Shades of Triangles

Hey everyone! Today's nails are inspired by all the beautiful triangle pattern prints that's been around for quite sometime. I've been wanting to get try create those repetitive triangle patterns but didn't have the courage to do so. Every time the thought of doing it pops up, I simply brush/push it away with this very excuse that goes in my head : It's going to be tedious, you're going to lose patience. You're not going to get the lines straight anyway. 

Well, my usual brush, although at size 0, was still too thick to attempt such designs. But ever since I modified one of my old nylon brush, I don't see why not! So, I finally sat down and gave it a go.

Fresh Start!

Gooooood Morning! How is your first week of new year so far? Since we're still New Year-ing (or at least I am), I wanted to do a nail look that says somewhere along fresh or refreshing. Well, new year, new life, new everything! So I guess, nothing beats the feeling of starting out freeeessh! And I'm glad to say it was pretty much a success :)

Happy New Year, 2013!!!

Hellllllloooooooooo!!!! And as the title mentioned, Happy New Year everyone! Hope you're all having a blessed start! 

As promised, I'm here (and on time!) to show you all the New Year's Nails I've been pretty excited about. Actually, its New Year's Eves nails. Hahaha! So, usually on every New Year's Eve, I'd be attending  the Church's Watch Night Service and have my countdowns there. It's not really a party-party event. But rather a time to reflect back on God's blessings and how He has guide us throughout bitter moments and sweetest moments of the year. There is no doubt that last year was quite a roller-coaster ride and time literally flew by for most of us, if not all. And since things were really picking up towards the end of the year (and the influence of glittery madness around blogger world!) I can't help but feel all glittery for New Year's Eve!
