Konad VS Free-hand #2

Yay for the weekly konad VS free-hand challenge #2. And I picked......

Another amazing design from Art of Nail, thank you for letting me use your photos!! (Post) I fell in love with this design when i first saw it on her blog, she did a really good job on layering the design.

And my free-hand version of it......

Butterflies are definitely not my specialty. Took me quite awhile to draw them and clearly my drawing skill need some improvement. I didn't know my branches were so thick until i uploaded the photos. =(
But overall, this was quite a challenge!! What do you think?

Rainbow jigsaw puzzle

I almost gave up on these because it took too long to draw the puzzle, but since i already spent 20mins on one nail, might as well just finish it.The end result was acceptable until i put the top coat on. I almost cried because it smudged!!! Especially on the thumb nail. After 10mins of "repairing", this is the best i can do.

Not the best, but not the worst either. I had my fun and thats all it matters.

Nail art decal and Stylish blog award!

A couple weeks ago I found out that Viva la nails have a special privilege for blogger and youtuber where you can get a product sample pack including 3 nail art stickers and 3 nail art water decal. And all you have to do is provide them your blog link and pay for shipping!!! So you have a blog/youtube and would like to try some samples, check out

This is my first time using nail art water decal and when i saw this package in my mail, i was so eager to try it right away. This is one of the design I did using 2 different water decal. They are fast and easy to apply even though i had to go on youtube and look for the tutorial on how to apply. Overall, I love the results but the only problem is, how long would they last with a top coat. I guess i would have to wear it for a couple days to see the final result.

And, and and I was tagged by The Nailasaurus, Polish Obsessed, Miss Devious Diva, Viva Polish!, Necessary*nails, Polish Infatuated for the stylish blogger award!!! I recently did this tag already but still, thank you so much!!!

Dress inspiration nail art

I think Olivia Wilde is hot, especially in TRON with black hair and thick black eye liner. *hands down*

An inspiration from Olivia Wilde's dress on 2011 Golden Globe Award ceremony. I definitely love this dress, it looks elegant and nice on her.

Thank you for all the comments on my free-hand drawing from the previous post. I'm so touched even though i don't think i did a great job on that. For this week konad VS free-hand, ideas and comments are welcome!!!

Thank you Jenny from Polishology for letting me use her amazing photos!! I took this photo from one of her recent post here. She used Deborah Lippmann Waking Up In Vegas and I used Color Club Wild Orchid. And my free-hand version is...

This is nothing close to konad stamp!!! Unfortunately I didn't have much time to do the rest of the fingers but next time I would for sure. And I believe there is room for improvement and will try harder next time. Thank you so much again for the encouragement!!! <3

Thank you for all the lovely comments!!! I guess i would try doing nail art on my own nails from now on then. I would still do it on fake nails for more challenging design but would cut it shorter instead of long nails.

While doing these nails, I came up with an idea, a silly one. Since i still don't own a konad stamp, why don't I do a Konad VS free-hand nail art design challenge. Every week, i would replicate a konad design by doing it free-hand. The results would decide by all you lovely bloggers. What do you think of this idea?

Eventhough these took me awhile (like 2 hours) to finish, but I am really satisfied with the end result.

Nails of the day

I've had a lot of comments saying that I should do the nail art on my own nails instead of fake nails. Thats because my nails are not as "clean" compare to other bloggers and I have short stubby fingers. So please, let me know if you still prefer me to do it on fake nails or real nails. I would really appreciate that! >.<

This is just a real simple nail design using one of my favourite blue nail polish (Love & Beauty) and OPI DS Coronation.

Please tell me what you think about this! >.< Oh, for the last blog award post, I apologize if I did double tagged any of you.

L-O-V-E Valentine's Day nail #4

 Valentine's Day nail #4
I forgot to take a picture on my fingers but from here you can see the differences between two different lighting. I remember seeing the design on the thumb nail somewhere before but i can't recall where (I won't be suprise if it's in Ikea) but this is definitely one of my favourite valentines design. The marbling effect was hand-painted, not water marbling since it's too messy and I am still experimenting the technique. How do you like this??


Valentine's Day nail #3

 Valentine's Day nail #3

I had this inspiration from Lady Gaga music video Bad Romance where she wore a silver dress with a lot of crystals on. So i used OPI DS Coronation and light pink but the holographic doesn't really show on the photo.  =(

Ah, and don't forget today is the last day for my 1st giveaway. and the second giveaway is coming soon, maybe sometime this week or next week!! *wink* And for those of you who could't find the "enter" button and posted on the comment section instead, I've had entered you in the form so don't worry.
