The lazy chevron

Hey there! I feel really shameful that it's been almost a year since my last post (again). Hope you're all well and dandy.

As you can tell from my extensive hibernation, I'm incredibly lazy. I've recently started doing my nail the super lazy way of painting them on a zip-lock bag first as a sticker. And as a mad chevron pattern fanatic, I just had to give this a go.

It turned out pretty well, minus the bubbles from the worst top coat ever. I regret buying this top coat so much that I don't even want to do a bad review for it. So just putting this out there, do NOT ever purchase the Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat. Worst. Top coat. Ever. Period.

Rant over, pretty nail art time!

I used Zoya in Anne as the base (my favourite namesake polish), and Revlon in Fuchsia Fever for the pre-painted pink chevron stripes, and a pair of pinking scissors.

Can you believe that I'm posing with my 1kg dumbbell weights. I've officially lost it.

Take care, y'all!

Review: Floral Water Decals

I hope everyone's having a fantastic festive season!

Born Pretty Store has been kind enough to send through another batch of their wonderful water decals for me to try out and of course, I said yes straight away since the last batch was so superb!

Click here for my tutorial of their last batch of water decals. I used the same method and made sure that I whacked on two layers of top coat this time for extra security.

I'm just going to jump straight into the photos since I have nothing but awesome things to say about these water decals. You should definitely check them out in the link below (and stock up because they're incredibly affordable). LINK :)

Although I have to say that the colours on the website are not accurate at all. They actually have this muted, warmer vintage look, which is much nicer in my opinion. Here are the photos!

I love these so much! They're so incredibly detailed and looks very delicate. I hope you guys like them too. Definitely check them out at Born Pretty Store via this link.

Use my discount code MUL91 too for 10% off!

Happy holidays!

Found my marbles

Hi again!

After yet another long hiatus, I am back with some water marbling.

Used OPI Happy Anniversary for the base because it is the most versatile base polish.
Then I layered that with drops of Nubar Pasadena Purple to create this wonderful psychedelic effect. Loving the swirls but hating the yellow lighting.

Happy painting, girls!

First taste of Butter London

Hello all! I am back! No more excuses now that my degree has finished. So be sure to check back for regular updates. Promise that I won't let you guys down! Heap more tutorials and nail art for you guys to indulge in :)

Now onto the actual content. Recently I bought my first few bottles of Butter London. I actually bought 7 bottles except one of them broke in transit so I was left with 6 and completely devastated. I wish companies would take better care when packaging them.
From left to right: Teddy Girl (pink), Crumpet (sand), Pimms (yellow), Squatter (green), Keks (blue), Giddy Kipper (purple)

Be sure to keep an eye out for them in my future posts. I can't wait to try them all out!

I have Squatter on my nails right now. I absolutely adore the colour. I love it to the point that I don't want to take them off. The photo makes it look a little fluorescent but it is actually much more muted in real life. It feels so fresh, perfect for Sydney's spring weather now that it has stopped thunderstorming.

I'm not quite sure how Butter London comes up with their names. But I like the wittiness. Hope you've enjoyed this colour too.

Until next time! ♥

I am apologising (yet again) for this long hiatus. I do have to confess that the reason is actually because I haven't been painting my nails. I feel so ashamed to not have been taking care of my finger tips, even neglecting to moisturise my cuticles.

This is just a quick update to thank you guys for still visiting me and keeping this little blog alive in spirit.

I painted my nails for my birthday dinner! Went a little over board because I missed doing my nails.

The base is Orly's Pure Porcelain. That's a sticker on my ring finger. I'm a cheater.

Hopefully I'll see you guys soon. Happy painting!
