Polished: Etude House LUCIDarling Nail Polishes

Hello Nail Art Lovers!

I’m extremely busy right now with daily hangouts from my various group of friends. I’d probably get busier by September and don’t know when I’ll be able to post again. A few months back, I bought a lot of Etude House and The Face Shop Nail polishes. The colors are so unique that I opt ot make a swatch from each. Below are the swatches for the polishes in case you haven’t bought it yet. Also, I noticed that Etude Polishes have big thick brushes.

Minzy “I love you” MV

Hello Nail Art Lovers!

Shoutout to all the Blackjacks!

Recently, 2NE1 came back with another hit “I love You” single. Kpop idols are known from their beautiful nails aside from their fashionable hairstyles. I always saw 2NE1 wearing a black nail polish especially their leader CL. Aside from that, they mostly wear 3D Nail Arts or fake nails. Luckily, Minzy wore a simple nail art anybody could make. She wore a black and red nails with white 3D flowers.

I haven’t used acrylic powders or UV gels and stuff so I substitute it with a white nail polish. Click on the video to learn more. ^_^

Polished: Hotpink – The Face Shop PK105 Nail Polish

Hello Nail Art Lovers!

The 2nd polish I’ll present is one of my fave polishes in my collection. I love the color pink especially if it’s paired with purple. I find pink and purple the best ombre combination. This one is from The Face Shop, a holographic shimmery hotpink color. As I apply it on my nails, it shows a purple glossy with small pink-ish glitters texture.  I love how it reflects lights and shines…

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!

Wonder Girls’ Yenny Yellow and Black Inspired French Manicure

Wonder Girls Yenny

Wonder Girls’ Yenny

Hello Nail Art Lovers and Wonderfuls!

The nail art tutorial I posted today is inspired by Wonder Girl’s Yenny/Park Ye Eun. She’s one of the lead vocalist of famous Korean girl group Wonder Girls. Literally, I call myself a Wonderful, Wonder Girls fans since I never get to registered as an official member. I love Korean Pop music and every time I get a glimpse of Idol’s nails, I try my best to make it so that everyone out there can have it too!

Wonder Girls topped my list of favourite girl idol groups in Korea.  I subbed to their youtube channel to keep updated, watch their live performances and sing their songs. I got extremely excited the moment I saw Yenny sporting a yellow with a black French manicure. It’s the first nail art I had since I started to grow out my nails. I’ve been into accent nails the past months because of my short nails. The tutorial is easy so hope everyone can do it!

Video where I saw her with the nail art:

Polished: Shimmer Purple

Hello Nail Art Lovers!

Purple is my favorite color next to Pink. I bought this polish from The Face Shop years ago which I often wear. I wore this nail polish a couple of times because of the shimmer-y finish it produces. ^_^

Sorry for the blurry photos, I’m only using Olympus Camera.
