Cute Thanksgiving Turkey Nail Art {Tutorial}



Hello lovely readers! Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner (Nov.27), I thought it's a good time to show you my take on Thanksgiving Turkey Nails. 

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who watch my videos. Your support means so much to me and I'm really grateful to have you as my awesome viewers. Thank you! ^-^ 

ps: I used acrylic paint because they are way easier to work with. And don't worry because they will be sealed/protected with a top coat at the end! If you don't have acrylic paint, feel free to use nail polishes 

Now move on to the tutorial, click below to watch!

Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Art (2014)



Hello lovelies! As you all may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which is a month to raise and support awareness of breast cancer and fight against this horrible disease. There are many ways you can do to raise awareness and contribute, for example: wear pink ribbons,  post/tweet through social media like facebook, twitter or instagram. You can also donate whatever you can to Breast Cancer Foundation, or purchase breast cancer related products to contribute. For example: OPI Pink of Heart,  Tweezerman Pink BCA Tweezer,  CLINIQUE BCA Pink lipstick, Sephora The Beauty of Giving Back Blush Palette and many many others... And most importantly, don't forget to do breast self-exams every month (more details on how to self-exam here) and/or mammogram screening from your physicians. 


This year, I wanted to do a simple Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Art, with pink and glitters for some sparkles. Click to watch how to create this design:


Products I used are quite simple, too. I use pink acrylic paint to draw the pink ribbon on my ring finger because it's easier to work with. But you can use nail polish instead if you don't have acrylic paint.

OPI Nail Envy 
Seche Vite Top Coat 
Nicole by OPI At Least I Pink So 
Sally Hansen Xtremewear Celeb City 
♥ Sinful Colors Diamonds are Forever 
Pink Acrylic Paint (optional) 
thin nail art brush 



Hope you like this post and design!
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

{Manicure Monday} Tutorial: EASY ♥ Refreshing Gradient Nails


Good evening everyone! In today's Manicure Monday post, I'd like to share with you a Refreshing Gradient (Ombre) Nail Tutorial....using acrylic paint! I love using acrylic paint for gradient because it's way easier to cleanup (with water) around the cuticles and it dries faster!! But if you don't have acrylic paint, you can use nail polishes... just use regular nail polish remover (I prefer non-acetone type) for clean-up instead of water. 

Click below for the tutorial!!! Hope you like it ^_^




Here is a list of items I used for this manicure:

OPI Nail Envy 
OPI Alpine Snow 
White Acrylic paint 
Mint Acrylic paint 
Makeup Sponges
Qtips & small brushes for cleanup
Sally Hansen xtremewear Celeb City 
Sinful Colors #1375 Diamonds are Forever
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top coat
