Pinky and the Thumb

Pinky and the thumb are the two big challenges for me because one is too SMALL and the other is too BIG. Thus, more effort is needed. In order to conquer this obstacle of mine, I’ve decided to practise more.

For my left thumb, I decided to do a collage of fimo slices because there was once I saw a collage design and wanted to do it one day and tada…today is the day. Alas, it is not as easy as I thought it may seem especially the part where I needed to wait for the top coat to dry up before putting more fimo slices on. I was just being too impatient!

For my left pinky, I just did a simple design with a metalic butterfly decor.

Here are the result of today’s practise:

Done on: 28th May 2012

For the collage, I’ve used flowers, fruits, feather, leaf and butterfy fimos plus many layers of top coat (Oh gosh!) as for the pinky, the materials used:

  • Nail polish – Midnight blue, white & silver glitter
  • Nail decor – Golden metalic butterfly

I will try to redo a collage design in the future as I am not too satisfied with this one, in meantime, I will have to practise cutting up really thin slices.

I hope you all will enjoy this post.

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~ 

Simple Designs (Updated)

Done on: 16th May 2012

Simple nail art design for very very very (hmm…did I say very?)  short nail. Opps, that’s yours truly’s thumb (*blushing*). Since there are no extra tips for me to place many fimos on, I was thinking, what the heck, just work on the colours and tada… here it is…Colours used: Bright Red, Mustard Yellow and Pink Glitters….Fimo used: (1 each )5x5mm Strawberry and Orange design…Rhinestones used: (3 each) 2mm Red and Black

The following is a simple design for longer nails. I’ve used pink glitter nail polish for the background and midnight blue for the tip (then I put another thin layer of glitter over the midnight blue tips). Just a simple blue flower fimo (well we can also use other colour to contrast the blue tip, but in this case, I just wanted the flower to blend in) is used on each nail and 3-5 pcs of 2mm white rhinestones are used to create a 3D boundary between the nail tip and the rest of the nail. As these are my baby sister’s fingers, I am able to do the design on all 10 of her fingers. Hee~

Yesterday, I tried to practise putting on nail polish with my left hand, using the top coat and a glittering nail polish. It was quite tough as predicted and it was as if I could hear the dialogues between my both hands:

Sad Right HandRIGHT HAND: It’s sooooo unfair! I’ve made your nails so pretty and you can’t even draw a  a decent straight line on my nails. Boohoooo~  

LEFT HAND (not wanting to reveal her photo): …hmm…not really that pretty…

————————————————————————————————————————–

With the glitter pink polish still on my nail tips, I decided to do another simple design on my left thumb by adding another Mocha Mix polish and 1 dragonfly fimo.

Here’s the result:

Last but not least, my baby sister wanted me to try on one rainbow design on her nails and I will post it up if it is a successful one.

Until then…TTFN!
