NOTD: French Pink

Ive always had a soft spot for French Tips because of its simplicity. And so I decided to recreate the traditional one, and thus the French Pink nails!

Too girly? Or sparkly? Too much pink, I know. But its really a cute color combination. I used a glitter nail polish as the base and a hot pink nail polish for the tips.

Here are the things that I used: BK Nail Polish in Hot Pink which I got from Born Pretty Store and an OMG (Crystal Sand) Nail Polish in Quartz which I got from the local mall here.

This bottle of nail polish is pretty cheap and is of good quality too. The name of the shade is "quartz" which is a light pink shade with glitters.

If you are wondering why it is called Crystal Sand nail polish, I think it has something to do with the texture cos after application I felt that the nail polish has a rough texture similar to that of a sand paper. But no worries cos once you apply a top coat, the surface will be smooth ;)

This hot pink nail polish is actually an old bottle that I got from Born Pretty Store. I have been using this for quite some time and I think its been a year since I had this and the quality is quite impressive cos it hasn't fried up until now.

Unfortunately, the writings on the back is in Chinese or Korean so I cant really understand what it says, or what the actual name of this shade is.

Here are closer shots of the final result of my Hot Pink French Tip nails. I am really loving this style so I guess I'll be doing more of this combination. Its very fun and easy to do too.

I hope you like today's nail art!~ Have a nice day.

Autumn Acorn

I've always loved autumn. And even though we dont have that season here, I sometimes act and dress up like its fall. Haha. Okay, I'm not sure about the "act", but the dress up is true. And so while I was trying to browse for autumn fashion, I came up with the idea of doing an autumn-ish nail art.

What do you think? Does it suit the fall season? For me it does. The colors reminds me of acorns, or is that how it is called? I think I just heard of that "fruit" or what, but if I remember it right, its kinda similar to a nut, or was it a corn? Lol.

And also, I think its a great color combination, since we all fell in love with the ombre trend. I just used colors which are very in-nature, thus the dull or lifeless shades. Afterall, autumn is fall, which signals the start of being lifeless (for me thats how I see the turnabouts of the 4 seasons).

I'm just not good with lines, so please excuse the messy application and uneven nails.

All in all, what can you say about this nail art design? Is it a yay or a nay? I feel like my nail art designs are becoming simple these past times that I am able to do my nails. Hmmm. I guess I need an inspiration so that I can get back to my usual designs.
