Secret Weapon and tutorial

Nah, its a secret weapon everyone has. But mine is a MODIFIED weapon and I shall tell you why.*evil laugh* But first, let me show you my base army: OPI base coat, that prepares everything before the war starts. I've not try any other base coat other than this so I cannot tell you which is the best. At least it works for me. As for the top coat, i think everyone would have to agree with me that Seche Vite is the holy grail of topcoat.

Now onto the "Commander": I hired him at a very cheap price, like a dollar or so from ebay and he works really hard for me (sometimes OT too!) LOL. This is the usual brush you see selling on ebay  except I kinda trim the hair abit to have even thinner stroke.

Comparing normal brush with my brush.

Note: I ONLY use nail polish for all my nail art because thats the reason why I buy nail polish: to use them =) And by mixing different nail polish to achieve the color I want, I sometimes accidentally "fraken" some interesting color and effect too!

Now the Gloomy Bear tutorial request by MaryBeth.

I usually do tutorial when people request for it even if only 1 person ask for it. So feel free to ask me if you are interested in it. =D

  13. Thank you for the tutorial and wow trimming the brush, such a simple yet effective idea <3

  14. Hey!... I'm starting on all this nail design stuff. How do you practice?. I see like you do all the nail art in "fake nails" first and later on you glue them on yours??... because I use to practice on my nails, but they are too tiny to practice :(
    And also if I paint my nails, I want the other hand painted too xD ahahaha but I can't do that, because I'm right handed and can't paint with left hand...you know.
    Hehehe, so, how do you manage to do it?. Your designs are really cool!.
