A Disastrous Beginning…

If I am Homer Simpson, I should be crying out, “DOH!” when I did the first nail art on our newly bought nail wheels.

I know I’ve mentioned that I don’t have time at the moment to do any nail art, but my baby sis wanted to try them out and to make things interesting, we decided to have a mini competition, with our mum as the judge.

What we did is to choose a video tutorial from YouTube and compete each other by doing the same design.

The design we’ve chosen is

Nail Art Tutorial Black & White Butterfly Freehand Design for Short Nails at Home

The lady did the design using 3 methods for the butterfly, first with a butterfly decal, then the stamping method and lastly the freehand method.

Since we do not have any decal (which I am so ~ so ~  going to buy in the near future) and the stamping tools, we painted our butterflies using freehand (yep…using the newly bought nail polish brushes…hehe).

I guess from the title of this post, you ought to know the result…You are correct, it was…

D-I-S-A-S-T-R-O-U-S!!!! 

The one with the blue rhinestones is done by my baby sis and mine is the one with a purple rhinestone. As the main part is the butterfly, so I just cropped out the butterfly areas.

So, no winner for this round…*sob*…

No pretty nail arts for this post but do enjoy looking at the other factors in this picture, for example, the nice candles, pretty frames and two cute little skulls…hehehe…

Rainbow Nail Art

My baby sister saw this design at Youtube (http://youtu.be/SuRDDVVK7p0) and asked if I am able to do it. I decided to give it a try and here’s the result:

Done on: 26th May 2012

Instead of the colourful flower fimo used in the video, I’ve used white/blue flowers fimo on her right hand and violet butterfly fimo on her left hand.

If you are sharp enough, you can see that I’ve improvised the colour order for her left hand into a mirror image order (ok..ok, I admit I screwed up the colour order while doing that nail…but hey, it’s still nice, right? hee~).

ANYWAY…I guess the word ‘improvise’ sounded nicer than ‘screwing up’?  **blushing**

Okay, here are the materials used for this design:

  • Nail polish colours – White, yellow, bright orange, red, bright green, sky blue, bright blue & silver glitter
  • Fimo design: Flower & butterfly

So, until the next design upload, TTFN~
