Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday today!

Ok, I didn't go and paint the town (or the nails) red. Instead I had myself a really good meal with good friends. Spent some time on my own as well since I really needed some peace and solitude. And that included some much needed nail art time!
 
Well, at least it feels like its been a while since I had tried to do something decent!
 
Unfortunately, it's been rainy these past couple of days. So no bright sunlight pictures (which is a shame since I really, really liked this set of nails!)
 
 


 
 
Items used:
Sponged gradient in OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI and Moyou London Midnight Madness
Stamping Plate: Moyou London Bridal Collection 07
Stamping Polish: Moyou London Midnight Madness

Revlon Starry Pink

I actually had pictures of some swatches done from a while back. Just that I never got around to editing them for the blog. Well, at least not until the recent PH.

Happy 52nd Birthday Singapore!

Apologies! I've been tied up with quite a few things at work and with my renovations! My new place is coming along quite nicely even though there were a couple of delays here and there. I have to say though, it's been so busy for me that I don't even have time for my nails. A good friend even commented that it was the first time he's seen me without polish on!
 
But I just had to pull a fast one today! It's Singapore's 52nd birthday!
And so I just did a really quick stamp this morning in my beloved country's colours. In fact, so fast that I smudged a couple of them while top-coating. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of time to re-do so it's just make do!
 
 





Items used:
Base polish - Zoya Sooki
Stamping polish - Konad White
Stamping plate: Bundle Monster BM 021

Bliz Gradient








Ok, I was too lazy and decided on a quickie. It's just a quick dry-brushed on gradient (over the earlier Revlon Graceful) with a very aptly named Revlon polish called Blizzard Berry.
 
It looks better IRL than in the photos though.

Revlon Couple that I'm Not Breaking Up With

Ok, I admit. I was at fault. I was heartless. I thought about giving you up before really working it out. But I am remorseful now. I know how well you fit me now. I'm not breaking up with you anymore. Don't worry. You're going back into The Stash right this minute.
 
 







Graceful,
2 coats + HK Girl TC
 
Instead, maybe its this bottle of HK Girl that I need to break up with now...

Geometry Love

I've got to say, this is one set of nail stamping that I am SO COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH. (ahem, excuse the shouting).
 
It caught a lot of attention from other people around me too and colleagues were astounded to know that this one was easy-peasy to do,
 
"Yeah, it looks complicated and like it would take a lot of time. But this one is really easy! It's only stamping!"
*cue incredulous looks from colleagues*
 
 






Items used:
Base polish: OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI
Layered polish: Moyou London in Bahamas Punch, Cheeky Cactus and Electric Teal
Stamping polish: Konad Black
Stamping Plate: Uber Chic plate 2-01

Girly Bits Cu Blue

Here's yet another one that's been dug out from the depths of a long forgotten box:
 
 




 
 
Girly Bits Cu Blue,
3 coats + HK Girl TC.
 
Royal blue jelly with copper bits in them.
Because it was jelly, it was a little of a hassle to get the coat even. The third was definitely required.
