Coral Plaid - Mar 8, 2009

Inspired by Nail Up Magazine. I like this one a lot and I often got a lot of compliments on how cute it was. I should try one like this again...

♥ duration: 60 mins (probably...)

♥ colors/steps:
▪ Orly Bonder
▪ pearly cream color for base color (can't remember what it is.. will have to look)
▪ tip color: Orly Lola
▪ white stripes first, then black stripes surrounding white stripes
▪ gold glitter striperin between the black and white groupings
▪ silver glitter striper for a bit of flash along the manicure line.
▪ set with random pink and white gems and pearls of varying sizes along french manicure line. I opted not to do every fingernail with gems since it looks too heavy for me. So I just chose the ring fingers. All other fingers have silver glitter striper as substitute.

Jenny's Wedding - Oct 3, 2009

I did these ones for Jenny's wedding in San Diego. The whole family was there so it was a lot of fun :) I wore the brown dress I bought from Macy's and I painted my nails magenta! lol :D crazy me.

this is probably one of the most plain things I'd done with my nails in aAAAages.

♥ duration: 25 mins (b/c the gems took a little bit of time to line up properly

♥ colors/steps:

▪ Orly Bonder base coat
▪ 2 coats of OPI's Kinky in Helsinki
▪ 1 row of 5ss Swarovski rhinestones in Fuchsia
▪ 1 stripe of iridescent striper by Art Club
▪ 1 coat Seche Vite

halloween 2009

Yes, I know I picked unconventional Halloween colors. I went for Red instead of Orange. Sometimes pumpkins and bats can be cute, but I just wasn't feeling it. >.<

So I went for this. I normally don't wear just black. But I went for it! :D and yes, only my ring fingernails were red.

♥ duration: 20 mins

♥ colors/steps:
▪ Orly Bonder base coat
▪ black polish - Orly Liquid Vinyl
▪ red polish - OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress
▪ Art Club red glitter striper
▪ Kiss black striper
▪ 7ss Siam Swarovski rhinestones
▪ Seche Vite

pink scallops - Nov 4, 2009

Got the idea for this one out of a Nail Up Mag. It was made to be a light blue sky (base color) and white scalloping to look like clouds. It was cute. :D I was still in pink mode when I did this back in November. :P

♥ duration:
25 mins (really simple, really quick, and super cute)

♥ colors/steps:

Orly Bonder base coat, Essie Castaway (pink tips), Kiss white striper, stain glass style nail seals purchased through Rakuten, a nude polish from Orly (label came off) as the base to make my nails look clean, and Seche Vite for top coat.

Below are the steps I took:

girls party

I went to a 9 yr old's birthday party this weekend to do nails for her slumber party. the birthday girl's mom took the photos so I don't have them yet. It was good fun :D
