In this post and the next three posts, we will be sharing some photos (together with some beautiful and enlightening poems) taken during Lovable Mum’s visit to the Garden By The Bay in 2013.
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful,
for beauty is God’s handwriting.

Here are some quick updates for you lovely souls out there!!
Our Give-away Event Indicator
- I’ve just added some information at our Give-away Indicator. If you have been following our blog, we did mention that we will only start a give-away event for both our blogs (i.e. nail art decor for this blog and fashion accessory for the other blog) once the vote hit the first 100. So, do vote away if you are interested to participate in our future giveaway events.
Our Fimo Packing
- We’ve changed the featured pictures for our Medium Cut Mixed-Fruits Fimo in our shop because we would like our customers to see the actual packing of each fimo design. Have already taken the pictures of our fruit feather/thin cut fimo designs but I’ve yet to update them in our shop! I know, I have been procrastinating…. 😦
Our All-Year-Round Discount Coupon
- Please note that the all-year discount coupon is also applicable for our nail art decors. You can also help us with the coupon design, for more information, click the picture of our current coupon design to find out how. We are glad to be using a design sent to us by a lovely soul for the coupon on 27th January 2013, do keep a lookout for it.
Our Nail Art Design Posts
- Last but not least, you must be wondering (hmm…well, I’ll have to be positive and presume you all did wonder) where is the post for Part 2 of our ‘Nail Art Practice – Santa Style’ …? Don’t worry, I’ve not forgotten about it…and yes, I have been procrastinating and thus loosing my nail art mojo again…haiz~
Okay, that is it for our latest quick update.
Cheers & TTFN~
All cute and lovely pictures found in this post are downloaded from FreeDigitalPhotos.net
As I’ve mentioned before, I NEED MORE PRACTICE~ and so here I am trying to polish my nail art skill with more nail polishes…lol…hmm…did you get the joke??
Uhmm…I hope you do…
Okay, as you can see from the above picture, after doing the chubby Santa on my thumb nail, I decided to continue with another 2 more nails using different colours.
Why not all 5 nails you may ask?
The answer is simple, I became lazy…waiting for the NAIL POLISH TO DRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY~ 😦
In order to have more practices, I’ve decided to use the nail wheel so that I can do other stuff while waiting for the polish to dry.
Inspired by the Chubby Santa design, the basic idea is to have the inner shirt, the outer coat and the belt therefore I’ve painted the inner shirt and the outer coat for all the 18 nails using different colours.
I will then enhance the designs as accordingly using other polish colours or nail art decors. A belt (with different design) will be added in order to keep the style in this wheel uniform.
From the above picture, you can see that I’ve already done 2 nails with the white inner shirt and pink & blue glitter outer coats. The white polish surface is still very cakey but I decided to finish using it before buying new one.
Let’s have a closer look with the following two pictures:
For the first design, I’ve used the pink glitter polish as the outer coat. I have used the golden micro bead as the gold buttons of the shirt and our clear colour 3D acrylic ribbon nail art decor as the big belt buckle.
For the second design, you can see that the blue glitter outer coat is a longer one. I’ve outlined the side of the coat with another blue nail polish.
At the top part, we’ve used our rounded green rhinestones (dark green for the core and light green for the petals) as the flower pendant of a choker. The belt is a 2-colour belt slanting down to the side of the hip but I am not too satisfied with the belt because the buckle is not very visible (shall improve in this).
And so this conclude Part 1 of my Nail Art Practising, Santa Style.
Hope you all enjoy reading this post.
Cheers & TTFN~
Yes! On this yet another cloudy day in Singapore, I’ve managed to get my fingers dirty. Since Christmas is coming soon, I shall start with some festive nail designs.
I’ve gotten the above design from a YouTube video. They’ve applied the design on the index finger but I’ve used my thumb and thus mine is a Chubby Santa Claus…lol…
The quality of my white nail polish is not very good + my unpolished skill in nail arts, I did not manage to have a nice & smooth surface for white colour.
MORE PRACTICE NEEDED!!!
Next, we’ll have the Christmas trees…
I started sketching some Christmas trees on the envelope of my phone bill when I decided to do some tree designs.
Two very NOOB designs by yours truly
The first one is an outdoor Christmas tree and the white area at the bottom is..ah…hem…the snow…*gulp*…yes, the snow. The second one is an indoor Christmas tree.
I am pretty sure you all would not know they are actually Christmas trees if I’ve not describe them.
For the first design, I’ve used an acrylic star decor for the star above the tree and some golden micro beads to highlight the layers of the tree.
For the second design, I’ve used 2 cherry fimo slice as the mistletoe and the green rhinestones to outline the tree.
Last but not least, here’s an animation video of two penguins decorating their Christmas tree.
Hope you all enjoy reading this post.
Cheers & TTFN~
I wanted to do giveaway events, but I am not sure if anyone will be interested in them so I’ve decided to use a poll as an indication to know when to start a giveaway event.
Check out our side bar and you will see one new poll section – CNC GIVEAWAY EVENT INDICATOR.
We will organize a giveaway event whenever it hits a 100 ‘yes’ vote — when we received our 1st 100 ‘yes’ vote, we will start to organize a giveaway event and when it hits 200, we will organize another and so on.
So, if you, especially our lovely followers, are interested in taking part in our future giveaway events, remember to spare a little of your precious time to take part in our poll.
If you’ve just stumbled upon this humble site of ours, please do take part in our favourite fimo poll as well. Thank you in advance.
Last but not least, the butterfly n dragonfly fimo page is up and you can check them out under our fimo collection page menu.
All fimo designs are now available for sales and should you be interested in any of them, just click on the picture and you will be re-directed to our website.

Hope to see you all at our humble little store.
The internet is bursting with various different nail art techniques, but none quite mach up to these…
These are created by Alice Bartlett a computer coder from London. She made these mini landscapes from various peices of a model railway set.
Thinking they’d make intresting photos she set it up on one hand whilst taking photos with the other. After she was done she stuck the minitures around her house as little surprises for visitors.
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
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…
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…
Love it whenever I hear the nice post lady’s calling…an indication that my stuffs are here to stay!!!
My nail polish brushes and nail wheels arrived just two days ago, and in good condition. Happy~ However, I don’t have the time to do any nail design yet since I am still busy with other stuffs, so do be patient and still be with us, okay?
It seems that the poll section in the dash board is gone and I am not sure why, another bug perhaps? Anyway, please do take part in our poll (at the side bar) if you’ve already stumbled upon this humble blog of ours. Thank you!!
Today is Saturday and thanks to the caffeine in my morning coffee, I’ve managed to update our ‘Be with us’ page.
Please enjoy them.
Till then~ Cheers!!
Good afternoon everyone!!
Yep, that’s our lunch for today. Instant noodles for me and apples for my red-neck turtle of 23 years.
What about yours? No matter what you are having, we do hope you enjoy them. 🙂
Page Updates: Our Fimo Collections
How about Blush and Beauty? I see red and think of bright red lipstick on a beautiful lady and pink reminds me of a blushing young girl.
The above comment was left by shewhisperswords for our ‘Look! Pinking is blushing…” post, which I truly appreciated 🙂 and so I name this ‘Nail on Paper’ design using the suggested name.
Why is this a ‘Nail on Paper’ design since I did not really draw anything here?
I took the picture of my hand with the Mocha Mix nail polish while the polka dots, fimo slices and rhinestones were applied by using Photoshop editing with the pictures that I’ve taken for our fimo and rhinestones.
So, literally it is just a ‘paper’ nail art.
The pink polka dots represent the ‘blushing’ and the flowers and rhinestones represent the beauty and elegance of a female.
Of course, nail art designs are still best when they are applied on actual nails! I am still waiting for my brushes to arrive and hopefully I am able to post more actual nail designs in the near future. Perhaps, this can be an alternative when you simply just don’t feel like waiting for the nails to dry. Hehe~
Hope you all enjoy reading this.
