A Pleasant Surprise

This is why…

A pleasant surprise from my sweetest baby sis!!!! She bought them during her lunch break. Had tried them on her nails and the top coat simply looked wonderful on her base-coated nails.

As I will be busy with the purchasing of our fashion accessories (x_x) during the next few days and also with the packing of the fimo slices meant for our next giveaway event (I am sorry that it is taking so long because much of the time was spent on revamping this blog and I need to revamp our fashion accessories blog as well), I will try to update at least our “Be with us” page.

Thank you for being with us!

Till then, TTFN~  

Childish Smile

As a name, what do you think about ‘Childish Smile’? 

(because pink is usually, but not always, a childish color)

:D 

Received a comment from CreatingADream for our “Look! Pinky is Blushing” post and decided to do a nail art using red and pink.

The system of my mobile phone was recently updated and I noticed there are some new features in the default camera app. So I took the photo using it and the result is quite satisfying. The bottom picture was the result after using its effect mode.

I’ve used a ribbon fimo and a love fimo to represent a female at two different stages of her life.

The ribbon fimo represents a little girl’s smile, which is by default, a childish sweet smile. The love fimo represents a lady’s smile whenever she felt being loved, a sweet and perhaps a little childish smile?

The above are just purely my own interpretation inspired by the given name.

Hope you enjoy them and till then,

BE WITH US PAGE: UPDATED

Look! Pinky is blushing…

During my younger days (yes, I am still young…hehe), I loved watching a cartoon show “Pinky and the Brain” and it was interesting to watch the little Brain trying to take over the world while staying inside a cage within a lab and yet how the clueless and insane one (yes, Pinky) sabotaging his plans time after time….funny…

So, if anyone out there who is secretly trying to take over the world, choose your partners well. Brain has no choice so he will just have to stick with Pinky. >_<

Okay, okay…before I tend to go off-topics, here’s another set of thin-cut fimo slices in pink and red:

Yep, finally I’ve managed to finish them. There should be 8 designs for the red colour but due to the 12-box template (I am just too LAZY to extend it) I’ve included them with the other two more colours. Due to this laziness act of mine, I am now facing a problem…

What problem? You may probably ask (I hope)…Well, I cannot come out with a good title for this 3-colour combination (URGHHHHH!!!!).

Fortunately, while I was cracking my brain very hard for a good title, another idea struck me!!

WHY NOT ORGANIZE A NAME GAME????

What do you think? Don’t mind leaving a comment here?

So, do look out for more details of this coming event in our future posts and your kind involvement will be much much appreciated.

MUAHKKK! MUAHKK!!

In the meantime,

Thank You For The Participation…

Woah~ our fruit fimo giveaway event has finally come to an end, with the 4th packet claimed by Denise, who is kind enough to spare her time to guess the colours of our next thin-cut fimo in our previous post (Fruit Fimo Giveaway Updates) and got it correct!

Happy~ Happy~ Happy~

I am so happy because our fimo slices are reaching to those who are new to fimo nail arts and we truly hope they will enjoy the fimo slices sent to them. ^_^

Another nice news that we would like to share with you all is…We have 200 followers !!!  (*sob*sob…tears of happiness)

To celebrate this happy occasion, we are going to organize another giveaway event very soon. So do check your reader/e-mail (if you happened to be following our blog) for this event soon.

I have to admit…the sorting of our pink and red thin-cut fimo is a little slower than expected due to some unforeseen circumstances but I’ve managed to finish sorting and packing them during this morning.

Hopefully I am able to post them up during the next few days. While sorting, I have 3 apple designs which I don’t really know what colours they should belong to.

Any ideas? Why not let us know?

Thank you very much for all the kind participation in our blog because we really do enjoy all the interactions we’ve had with you kind souls out there….MUAHKKKK!!!

Nail Patch/Sticker – When Time Is Simply Not Enough…

Latest promotion: Buy 2 get 1 free

You can visit http://list.qoo10.com.sg/g/405438334 for more details on purchasing this item.

Thank you.

————————————————————————————————————————-

When TIME is the ONLY thing that one cannot afford to waste, what will you do when your mind is still blank and your nails won’t say yes to only nail polish? (Angry Nail 1: I need designs!!!)

A good solution might be…to invent a time machine that can freeze time or simply just using…NAIL PATCH.

For those who are new to this item, nail patch is very similar to stickers (don’t we just love stickers? Even when I am already a full-grown adult..ha~and you thought I am going to say out my age?? nah…), the only difference is that they are meant to be on our nails and not on some sticker albums or the bed dashboard (hmmm…those ‘Chun Li’ stickers from streetfighters are still on mine…oh…how time flies… :P)

They come in all sort of designs so the only thing you need to do is to choose.

One of the advertisement gimmick lines for this product is “Get your nails done in just 5 minutes!” , well perhaps true for those really really really (did I already say ‘really’?) professional ones but definitely not for first-timers, unless you are really good at arts and crafts.

DON’T SULK YET!!

In order to prove that this is a user-friendly product, as a newbie myself (crossing my heart), I’ve taken the liberty to try out our Citrus Circles design on my baby sister. Here’s the result.

How is it?

Of course, 5 minutes is quite impossible but hey, I took only around 10 to 15 minutes, which is considered quite time-saving comparing to putting those fimos on. I am sure if I keep on trying, 5 minutes may be possible for me too. If you would like to share your experiences with us, don’t hesitate to leave your reply/comment for this post. My eyes are open to read all about them. Hee~

You can put on a layer of top coat on them after you’re done so that they can be more lasting.

Here are 3 of our favourites:

      

As two designs (Citrus Circus & Wild Fusion 2 ) are currently out of stock, there are 8 designs currently available at the moment.

  

Have a great day ahead!

Don’t be Blue, Stay Cute…

Blue is one of my favourite colours and thus I decided to try out two blue colours on my nails. Unfortunately, besides painting my nails blue (x3), my mood was painted blue as well.

It was the day I FINALLY realised why those previous few nail designs were getting small lumps after applying the top coat polish.

The reason is simple…

IT WAS ALREADY CONTAMINATED!!!!

URGHHHH!!!!

Did you see the ‘x3’?

Yes, it took me 3 tries….why?

BECAUSE MY TOP COAT WAS CONTAMINATED!!!!!

Sad…now, I’ve no more usable top coat polish BUT I am just tooooooooo lazy to go and get one.

Must get one soon….must get one soon…..

How ironic life can be sometimes, wanted a cute and simple design and yet, giving me blue moods because of it….anyway, here’s the outcome from this ironic learning experience:

Can you notice the uneven surface?  Trust me, that was the best I could with THE CONTAMINATED TOP COAT..(*sob*sob*).

No top coat polish applied to the other 4 nails since I was convinced that they looked nicer without it.

By the way, did you also notice two tiny round blobs? They used to be two sparkling light blue 2mm rhinestones but after 3 tries, they became two blobs (*sob*sob*)….poor rhinestones…don’t be sad…you still rock, even as a blob!!!

Material used:

  • Colour – Baby Blue, Blue & Silver glitter
  • Nail Art Decor – 1 thick-cut pink ribbon fimo and yes, two 2mm light blue rhinestones (*Sob*)

Please…do…enjoy…*gluped*….?

Fruity!! Fruity!! Fruity!!

As I was checking the poll for the preferred fimo designs, I noticed that nobody selects “fruit”. So, I took the liberty to search for some fruit nail  arts from the Pinterest and found some designs to share with you all. These designs belonged to their respective creators and hopefully I am able to upload another nail design using fruits fimo done by myself.Also, I’ve found some fashion accesories (from Pinterest) made out of fruit fimo and they are super cool! How I wish I can create those nice accessories in the near future..tsk…tsk…so many things to learn, so many things to practise, so many things to do….gosh…anyway, here’s the picture of the compliation and yes, they all belonged to their respective creator(s) (whom I really envy… ^_^).

If you like to read more of these compliation on other fimo nail designs, do let me know.

Last but not least, I decided to organise a giveaway event for our fruit fimo slices. I know we can easily purchase any fruit fimo canes on websites and they are really nothing new. However, as I have mentioned in one of the previous posts, all the fimo slices are cut, sorted, packed with all my heart, hoping to see more smiles than frowns on the faces of all our valued customers.

As a matter of fact, my sister told not to continue with this fimo merchandise and to concentrate on other nail art decorations instead since it is really an effort and time consuming task. But…but…I really do enjoy the entire process and whenever I would feel good whenever I am able to update my fimo catalogue.

There is a saying “No pain, No gain” right?

So, is the fruit fimo giveaway a good idea? Do let me know. If the response is positive, I shall save some of our fruit fimo slices (feather cut, thin cut and thick cut) for the giveaway and hopefully those who will receive the fimo slices are able to do a design and e-mail them to me so that I can upload them in the blog.

Well, let me know okay?

Here are the coming updates for the next few posts:

  • The last 12 designs for the feather cut fimo are finally ready and I am now doing the sorting and packing for the thin cut fimo. Since most designs for thin cut fimo are a repetitive of the the feather cut, I decided to sort them out in term of their colours so as to present you all with different views/perspective. Currently I’ve finished sorting out the green ones and will upload them together with the last 12 feather cut designs. If possible, I will try to sort and pack another colour, hopefully to upload them together.
  • I’ve done another nail art design using two type of blue colours and 1 thick-cut fimo during last week. Will upload the design up soon.
  • Possible fruit fimo giveaway? It is entirely up to you all to decide, so let me know whether it is feasible by leaving a comment for this post. Thank you in advance!!

In the meantime, do enjoy the pictures !!

A Very Simple Nail Art Design

I’ve mentioned earlier that my aunt came for a visit during two weeks ago and I did a simple nail design (well, simple is the only thing  I can do so far, lol) and I simply love glitter colours at this stage because the glitter colours are good for covering up the flaws on the uneven french tips (LOL). I know, I needed more practising…hehee…so, here’s the result:

I did alternate designs with a flower fimo + line dots on 3 fingers and only 2 simple rhinestones on 2 fingers so they won’t fall off easily due to all the washing and cooking in the later part of the day. The reason I chose red rhinestones was because her toe nails were already painted in red hehee…

  • Colours used: White, red, sliver glitter and pink glitter.
  • Fimo used: Orange Flower (6 pcs)
  • Rhinestone used: 2mm round red rhinestone (8 pcs)

Gotta get back to more fimo cutting and sorting.

Will upload more designs when they are ready, so do stay tuned for more…

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~
