See That Red!

Hello! Here's to wishing you a beautiful start to a wonderful weekend! 

Well, I don't know about you but my eyes always falls on red and white combination. There's something about these two being together that proves to be a beautiful combination and contrast. Very eye-catching! From the moment I set eyes on this beautiful photo (second picture from the left) captured by Matt Clayton, I felt so inspired! I really wanted red doors on my nails! Hahaha!! As if those doors weren't enough to motivate me, I saw this amazing square frame nail art by the very talented Candice from Mr. Candiipants. That was it. The inspiration was literally screaming to be out! ;)

Out of Frame

Hello! :) It finally rained yesterday and haze has cleared up quite a lot. Praise God for that! Today I'd be showing you a nail art I did last week and wore over the weekend. It is inspired by this photo. I love the setting of the photo as well as the colours and the atmosphere it gives - a little bit industrial and a little bit mysterious.

1st Year Bloggiversary!

Hello Everyone! I almost missed my first year bloggiversary (actually I did. The blog went live on 21st June 2012..I kept thinking it was 29th...) Fortunately, today coincides with the date of my first post of NOTD. Anyway, as the month of June approached, I have been wondering what I should write or what I should post. It's rather unfortunate that until now, I still do not know for sure what I'd be talking about. I thought of maybe a 'then and now thingy' or could I talk about how 'far' I've come?

Nail Stylure BE101

Hello! I wanted to post up new manicure today, but darn hot weather and haze has caused my mani to bubbled up. I thought I'd show it anyway, but.... nah. The bubbles totally ruins the manicure. Thankfully though, I've got this swatched up the other day. So while I redo my mani in faint hopes that it'd be better, here's something to fill up the blog. Hahaha! 

Some of you may know that I have been wanting to get OPI My Vampire is Buff or Zoya Jacqueline for I love me some nice yellowish off white polish as base for nail arts. But I'm not willing to pay the price. I thought I was, but every time when I see OPI's the price just...turns me off. And my little search in hope for dupes started. However, I wasn't looking for any brand dupes, specific ones with okay formulas. I was hoping Etude House would have some, but sadly, there weren't one. Ah, I thought of It's Skin brand as I've not tried their milk/creme formulas. I didn't have my hopes high though, knowing that every time when I'm on the look for certain shades, they always prove to be unavailable. Much to my delight, It's Skin BE101 came close enough.

Mod Squares

Delightful Afternoon to all of you here! Today's inspiration comes from this lovely picture which features very simple design elements yet so stylish. I wish I could have incorporated the thinner lines in the design but my black polish, brushes and hand isn't co-operating. So I have here a simpler design featuring only two colours.

Little Poppies

Good afternoon to you! It's been a week since my last update (sorry!) but I have yet another inspiration found on etsy! This is the picture I was inspired by. I thought the poppies looks really lovely! 

Lacqueerisa: Little Poppies

I have been wanting to do a poppy inspired nail art but have always been procrastinating. With the help of the inspiration, I finally got it done. Haha!

Lacqueerisa: Little Poppies

This is a very simple nail art. I started off with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as base. Using a striping brush, I drew the stems of the flowers. Then I proceed with dotting flowers and leaves with dotting tool. For the index, thumb and pinky, I used the brush from the black polish to do an irregular french tip - mimicking the look of the scarf.

In general, I think poppy flowers are very beautiful. I love the name actually. Hahahaha! Very catchy indeed! Anyway, that is it for today. I hope you like them. And hopefully I'd be able to get at least another post up this week. Hahaha! 

Nail polishes used:
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • Naga 2 Way Art Pen (Black striper)
  • Revlon - Revlon Red
  • Revlon - Pretty In Papaya
  • Etude House - GR605
  • Etude House - Ultra Green

Mix 'n Match 'Em!

Happy Monday everyone! As promised, here is the NOTD for today! It's inspired by this picture I saw from Etsy Finds. I love how they have staged their products and the beautiful mix of different elements in the photo which makes the photo absolutely arty and eye catching.

One Bumble Bee

It's Saturday! Good Morning! 

I hope your weekend is starting great! Today's NOTD is inspired by this picture I saw on pinterest. I felt like doing something yellow inspired and stumbled on that picture on pinterest. I'm not too sure why, but there's something about the black dotted ribbon that captures my attention so. Hahaha!
