Nail Art Weekend: Semi-Precious Stone: Turquoise

Nope, I haven't forgotten about nail art weekend.
Just that I was out on a day trip across Singapore's borders,
and could only deal with the photos now.
 
Anyway, I decided to try a new technique yesterday.
Love the end result even though clean up was a major pain in the ass.
 
 
 
 
Polishes used are:
A-England Camelot,
A-England Galahad,
and OPI The Man with the Golden Gun.
 
I love how this reminds me of turquoise.
When I forget the pain of the clean-up,
I'm going to try a white and gold version.

Earth Hour 2014

Earth Hour is an event held worldwide,
and encourages individuals, households, businesses and communities
to pledge their commitment to the planet.
So remember to switch off your lights and turn off whatever appliances you can come 8:30 pm!
 
And in honour of Earth Hour,
my friend passed me back this bottle as she felt it was most apt:
 
 
 
 
1 coat OPI Lights of Emerald City over A-England Lancelot,
topped with HK Girl TC.

In Memory of C: Orange Butterfly

While searching for free images of orange ribbons the other day,
I chanced upon this image where the orange ribbon was set amidst a butterfly.
 
 
 
 
I think C would have loved this and so decided to set about replicating it:
 
 
 
 
Items used:
A-England Camelot,
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls,
Sally Hansen Nasturtium,
black and orange gel pens,
and gold studs

Yeah. She would have gotten a kick thinking about being a beautiful spirit.

In Memory of C: Nail Presents

During one those times when C was feeling better,
she went out to get me 2 bottles of Anna Sui polishes.
I was super touched when she gave them to me,
as even then, a trip out could easily tire her.
 
These 2 polishes were also used in the last set of nail art I managed to show her before she left us.
 
 
 
 
Anna Sui #103,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
Dark blue shimmer.
Unfortunately, the wear wasn't so good with this one.
 
 
 
 
I just had to wear the 2 polishes together,
so I did the thumb in the other colour.
Then, a few days later, I reversed the order.
 
 
 
 
Anna Sui #370,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
Pink crème.
 
 
 
 
I miss you dear.
