Glitter Royal Blue Nails + How To: Remove Glitters

Hello Nail Art Lovers!

I’ve been invited to a wedding last month with a royal blue theme. Everyone’s requested to wear something that has a touch of royal blue. I was excited since I have couple of royal blue nail polishes. I want to wear something simple and matches the bold royal blue color so I came up with a glitter gradient effect. Simplicity is beauty.

Ombre nails is a summer trend that I don’t think would die out soon. Ombre nails are created through the gradient effect which can be done in two ways.  The first one is by sponge method where you dipped the sponge in the polish of your choice and slowly dub it on top of the existing polish on your nails of different color. The second one is simply using the nail art brush, gradually minimizing the area as you put in another coat. It’s doing the half of your nails, then 1/4th of your nails.

I’ll also be teaching or encouraging you rather to utilize the foil method in taking off glitters. Nothing is harder when it comes to nail art than removing hard-to-get glitters. Removing it with a regular nail polish remover might take you forever especially if it’s acetone free.

What is an acetone?

                Acetone is a clear, harsh-smelling and highly flammable liquid. It’s a solvent, capable of disintegrating even plastic. This explains why it works so quickly breaking apart and removing your nail polish. Isopropyl alcohol is typically used in the making of acetone. – more here

Nail Polish with acetone is stronger in chemicals and easily gets off the polishes on your nails. Non-acetone is an acid free nail polish remover. It is a safer acid free alternative than acetone to remove nail polish while being gentler on the cuticle. There’s no negative effect on nails if you’re going to use pure acetone. Using non-acetone takes a lot more time than using the pure-acetone.

Personally, I only use Pure-acetone nail polish removers. I’ve tried the non-acetone one and it barely takes off the polish on my nails without doing it a few more times. Plus, it’s time consuming and wastes a lot of cottons. A pure acetone nail polish remover takes off polish easily but when it comes to glitters it loses its purpose. When I used the Foil method, I realized how hassle free it is. I’ll just have to wait around 5 mins. and the glitters are gone!

Foil Method in Removing Glitters on Your Nails

Materials: Scissors, acetone, cotton, aluminum foil

Step 1: Cut 10 pieces of square sized aluminum foil that fits your entire nails.

Step 2: Soak the cotton in acetone and place it on top of your whole nails. Ensure that all sides are covered.

Step 3: Wrap the foil around your finger with the cotton still on top of your nails. Wait for 5 mins and remove it. (tighten foil wrapped around your fingers so the glitters would stick on the cotton)

Step 4: Wash your nails, then moisturize. Acetone dries out your nails so you need to moisturize it.

                In case there are still glitters left, I just rub them off with the remover. 98% of the glitters stick to the cotton so you need to clean it again. This method is not the quickest way but surely is the easiest way!

Fruity French Manicure

Hello Nail Art Lovers!

How are you doing guys?! It’s been a while since my last upload. I feel like a whole lot of years passed by since I uploaded my latest tutorial. Jobless, yeah and that’s what keeps me from moving and making tutorials. I’m so happy right now that my nails are long. I’m excited much to shoot more nail art tutorials. Nail Art is my passion, I may not update my channel or blogs a lot but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like making nail art. There are just unavoidable circumstances I need to take which is more important than this hobby. Hopefully, if I get the job I’m applying for, I’ll be posting my travel photos. Sounds great?..yeah.. I’m currently listening to Kpop songs way back in 2009-2010 while editing my nail art vids.. Meanwhile here’s the last video I filmed last year, (it’s better late than never!) before new ones will come up.

My Graduation Nails (Green and Yellow)

Hello everyone!

I’d like to share the nail art design I had when I graduated in College (Hotel and Restaurant Management) last March 2011.  My University’s primary colors are yellow and green. Basically, you can see yellow and green everywhere! and especially on school’s merchandise i.e. notebooks, ballpens, etc.  This is my alma mater, since kindergarten I haven’t been transferred to any school so I don’t have any idea what’s it like wearing another uniform.  Finally, I’ve reached the final stage of schooling and now it’s time to work!

Hope you’ll love this design! Thanks for watching! Have a great summer!

Black and White Heart Fimo French Tip

Hello Ladies!

So, I’m crazily in love with fimos and majority of the nail art designs I’m wearing consists of fimos. I had these Black and White Heart Fimo French Tip design weeks before my graduation day. I just love the black and white color of the heart so i made a design with it. This is another very simple nail design which I speedily made before going to bed. Fyi, I often have my nail art done at night so it has enough time to harden. Our actions are limited whenever we have our nails done so that’s why I usually do it before I go to sleep.

here’s my Black and White Heart Fimo French Tip. Hope You all like it and HAVE FUN!

Product Review: Bornprettystore [Fimo-brushes-stamp]

            I love Nail Art. I have a huge passion for it. At first I only look at Nail Art Tutorials on Youtube. Suddenly, I was inspired to make one nail art tutorial video. I always wear nail art in school and a lot of people have been asking me how did I make it. Their beautiful words inspired me to make a tutorial video and share it to everyone who loves nail art but don’t know how to make it. If you watch over my videos, you’ll see my progress in making nail art. I only have a few nail art tools so I gladly accepted the offer when bornprettystore asked me to make a review in some of their products!

 1. 100 Fimo canes

Red, White and Silver Nail Art [Christmas Series]

Hello there!

I’ll be making a christmas series nail art design for the coming weeks or until christmas is over.^_^. I got a lot of new ideas for christmas season and I hope i’ll be able to show it all to you amidst my busy schedule. I just got hired last week in one of the local hotels here and i had to work 9 hours a day, 6 days a week. 0_0. I really didn’t like the hotel but I got no choice, I have to have a practicum or else I won’t graduate. So yeah, i’m gonna be pretty busy for the next 4 months.

Anyways, here’s my first christmas nail art design. This video was pre recorded weeks ago before I cut my nails. (they’re short now! arrgghh!). I’ll also try to make a nail art for short nails, for the meantime enjoy this one!.. thanks a lot!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
