Go Bridal with Gel Nails :D

Here's my Sis's nails for her bridal photoshoot in Sweden!

She requested for her all-time favorite french manicure...
And this time round, she finally decided to have some blings and 3D ribbons on!
(my Sis usually likes her nail designs to be very simple.. A total opposite from me! :D)

Did gel extensions for her but didn't have them too long cuz it's not easy for her to handle while travelling

3D ribbon that I have done with acrylics!
Sis LUV it!

I'm really happy with the way it turns out and I can't wait to do more...
Here's another pic of it:

Hope you like it too!

Flaunt it! -from Sis, from diva

My Sis got me these rub on adhesive strips from diva!
And of cuz, she chose LEOPARD Preeeeenzz for me!
They are very easy to use and goes on easily 
(provided your nails are clean!)

It comes with 16 precut strips...

And the original price was SGD 12... 
Glad my Sis got it at SGD 3!! WEE!

These are the instructions given.. Simple!

One nail done!

Remember to trim the strips to suit the width of your nails before rubbing them on.As for the excess length, you can file it off with a nail file.

DONE!








A point to note: it only last 1 to 2 days!!

I applied them on a Saturday evening and this is how my nails looked like on Monday evening:
Right hand- more damage cos I'm right-handed!

Left hand

Generally I'm happy with this product...
I find it useful, especially when you are in need pretty nails but might be too busy or tired to get yours done professionally!
Great for DIY!

Hope you get to try this product too...


Hugs,
Nat

Michelle's Gel Nails

Had my friend, Michelle, over at my place and I did gel extensions for her!

She wanted something simple and something that can easily match any outfit she wears (since she will be going on a vacation in USA for 2 months! *SHIOK*)...

So I came up with this!
It's a simple but very sweet design... Just like her! :D

Before:

After:

She's really happy with the outcome and wanted me to do her Sister's nails for her wedding this coming december!

I'm so excited and I can't wait!

Thanks for reading ♥ Nat

It's all about NAILS week!

Hello Babes!

I decided that this weeks posts will be all about nails!! 
I have been doing lots of nail designs and I've yet to have time to blog about them...

So for the whole of this week, I will be updating alot about NAILS... :D

Here's the first:
I did my own gel extensions and had a french tip design on...
Threw in some purple, blue and clear crystals to create a romantic touch!
Designed this for my Sis's wedding shoot but in the end,
she decided to go for something more classic.. (Pics coming up!)

I spent almost 8 hours on my nails because I had to do a finger at a time and it wasn't easy doing my own extensions on my right hand (since I'm right-handed!)
*Phew!*

Thanks for reading!

Gel Nails! -I finally Bought it & Did it!-

Wee... Bought a set of gel nail kit and had my sis to be my first model!!


Here's how her puny tiny nails looked like at first :)

Due to her laboratory-based work, she didn't want anything too over-the-top and she didn't want the gel extensions to be too long...


So this is what I did (on one hand!):
A classic french with glitters...


And on the other hand, I did a see through double glitter/ gradient design:


So... what do you think?

I'm going to do another set for my sis for her bridal photo-shoot. 
Next time round, extensions will definitely be longer, more blings and there might be even bows or hearts!! 


So stayed tuned for more!


I did my own nails too! Pictures coming up!!

A New FAV! Hot Eyelash Curler

Bought a EYECURL Hot Brush Eyelash Curler from SASA recently...
And I must say that I LOVE x3 this product!


The best thing I like about this product is that it's compact and can be stored away easily. I can bring this item around conveniently anywhere without worrying that I will break it like the normal eyelash curlers.

If you are wondering about the price, it's only SGD 15.20!!
It comes with a brush for cleaning the heating wire, a cap and a clear set of instructions.

I really recommend this because the heating element really makes the eyelashes curl fast and easy... Moreover you can use it on your lower lashes too!

Go grab them now!
Cheers,
Nat
