Work in Progress

This is my workstation – My lovely lappy, my wonderful ‘weapons’, an unopened package and…hmm…an unpaid bill…hehe

I’ve spent the entire morning taking photos and packing the checked products and now I’ve left with 1 more box to go before the rest arrive!

Happy~ Happy~ Happy~

I will always try to keep my workstation as neat as possible so that the motivation to move on is bigger. Although  it may be time consuming, I think it is much more effective for me.

Okay, gotta go get a quick shower and then I will  need to do the following:

  • Upload a post in our Fashion Accessories Blog
  • Read more blogs (this is supposed to be on-going…hehehe)
  • Make more tags for packing
  • Perform quality check for the products in the unopened package
  • Edit pictures (taken in the morning) for our online page (still in progress)

After finishing the above, I can move on to my fimo thingy~ till then~ do continue to be with us and have a great weekend ahead!

MUAHKKKK~

I Love Dragonflies…

…unless they come in the form of fimo canes or slices (>_<)!!!!

Why?

It is not that I don’t like or hate the real ones, I am just AFRAID to go near them.

How should I describe this mixed feeling…hmm…okay, let’s just put it this way.

A person with low tolerances for spicy food (i.e. yours truly) yet stubbornly wanted to include chilli in the food whenever she is being offered despite knowing she will have a hard time getting the food down her throat.

I really like spicy food but my tongue doesn’t… (>_<)

Now, do you get what I mean? 😦

NOW, LET’S GET BACK TO THE PURPOSE OF TODAY’S POST….

I’ve added a new category today, which is ‘Sharing’, for all the fimo nail designs that I want to share with you all. Therefore, all the nail art designs posted in this category belong to their respective owners/creators.

In order not to infringe any copyrights, I’ve taken the liberty to watermark the pictures so that if you think their designs are interesting, you can always visit their sites for more. This is what sharing is about. 🙂

Now, back to dragonflies. Why did I say I love them when I am so afraid of them?

Isn’t life filled with ironies? The truth is that I was really enjoying myself during the slicing all my dragonflies fimo canes. I like their shape designs and also the vibrant colours. Therefore, when I was going through the websites and spotted this dragonfly nail art, I wanted to share with you all.

I really love the colour of the dragonfly in this nail art, unfortunately I don’t have that in my inventory (*sob*) so will definitely look out for this colour in my next restocking.

I’ve also included 3 similar designs with different colours in the picture for your reference and I do hope you all will enjoy reading posts from this new category.

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*….?

Fallen Flower on Water…

My first toe nail art…hehe…frankly speaking, I thought it would be easier but IT IS NOT!!!!  p(-_-)q

Perhaps it is just me, LOL.

Nevertheless, I’ve only managed to apply my design on the big toe while the rest, I just finished them off with 3 light purple dots on each nail (may not be very visible in the picture) in order to match the purple flower fimo. As a matter of fact, I wanted to use a blue flower fimo but then the contrast between the fimo colour and the background colour will be very low.

Initially, I wanted to name it “Water Splash” but decided to change it to ‘Fallen Flower on Water’ since I thought it looks like fallen flower floating on water (been reading too many blogs on flowers…or am I just trying to console myself? :P)

What do you all see? No harm letting me know eh?

So, here’s the result of another of my unskilled nail art:

The upper picture was taken while my feet were still dry. When I was changing water for my red face turtle (of 23 years), water was running down my feet and when I look at the nails again, they looked kinda…hmmm…different? So I decided to take down another picture for comparsion purpose.

Okay, enough blabbering…here are the colours and materials I used for this design:

  • Silver glitter (background), white, baby blue & blue (water) and light purple (dots)
  • 1 purple fimo flower

Hope you are enjoy this humble design of yours truly.

Till then, TTFN~ 

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…

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!
