Nail art 30 Oktober 2010

Milani 3D Holographic Specialty Nail Lacquer - Hi Res

Dari beberapa kutek yang kubeli, yang pertama kucoba sebenarnya OPI Color So Hot It Berns, hanya saja cuma di 1 kuku, soalnya base coat ku sedang habis. Ketika aku membeli kutek TSF Nail vita base coat, baru aku berani menggunakan kutek di semua jari, dan kali ini aku menggunakan Milani 3D Holographic Specialty Nail Lacquer - Hi Res.
































Pertama kali aku memakai kutek ini, rasanya kutek ini tebal. Huahaha... mungkin karena banyak gliter2 nya. Saat memakainya 1 coat rasanya kurang (walau sudah mengcover seluruh kuku). Maka aku memakai 2 coat. Jika dilihat dari dekat, efek holo nya kurang begitu kelihatan, tapi kalau dari jauh, lumayan terlihat.

Secara keseluruhan aku suka dengan kutek Milani ini. Tapi kuas kuteknya aku rasa terlalu keciiiil jika dibandingkan dengan TSF dan OPI.
Warnanya aku rasa agak kurang cocok dengan warna kulitku, karena warna kulitku terang, maka kuteknya membuat efek kulit jadi pucat. Tapi nggak jadi masalah juga, karena efek holo nya baguuuus.

Kesimpulan : Efek holo-nya bagusss. Enak diliatnya :D

Recent Beauty Items Purchase

Halo, setelah lama tidak posting, aku kembali lagi, huehuehue... Ini beberapa kutek yang baru kubeli untuk melengkapi koleksiku.

Doing an at-home manicure instead allows you to paint your nails at your own pace and use your creativity over and over again. Try any or all of the manicure tips for at-home fingernail painting.


• Start with easy manicures like solid colors, alternating colors, or basic abstract designs like stripes going in different directions or even polka dots.
• Remove all old polish with nail polish remover and cotton balls.
• Start out with a basecoat for best results and to help strengthen fingernails.
• Paint coats of nail polish one at a time to allow your nails to dry completely.
• Find out the best colors of polish based on your nail bed or shape.
• Consider adding nail art decals, stickers, or tiny temporary tattoos for a creative touch.
• Think about trying something new, like 3D acrylic designs for your nails.
• Paint tiny nail designs using nail art brushes if desired.
• Add a clear topcoat to protect your at-home manicure and increase length of time that it should last.
• Try a glitter topcoat for added glitz and glamour.
• Wear dark nail polish colors on short nails.
• Try to do your own French manicures at home for special occasions or anytime you like.
• Keep practicing to improve your at-home manicure skills.

HALLOWEEN OOH LALA

Where do I begin to explain what's going on with all of these nails. Halloween is the time to just go super crazy on nails. Soooo there is a lot going on here. If any of you have questions on the specifics of what products I used etc... just send me an e-mail and I will do my best to respond.
This is mostly hand painting that I learned from a Young Nails class :)

The orange moons here are from dollarnailart.com. The purple is purple passion from artglitter.com

This is a set of nails that I did on a 10 year old for her Birthday. This is her very first set of acrylics and she knew exactly what she wanted!

Loving the swirl for Halloween.

On these nails I faded green, black and purple together. Love these colors for Halloween. I like how the spider pops on that green!

These are my sister-in-laws nails. I handpainted a gravestone and put her husbands (my brothers) initials on it. Heee heeee hee.

This is a cool effect I learned from Young Nails. I used black acrylic and then put "ice" glitter over the top. The way it reflects the light makes it look blue. Lovin it!

This is opi gel polish in black onyx with a coat of extra va ganza over the top. Had to add the 3d spider and web. SPOOKY!

This is a fimo clay witch on the ring fingers from kennickkreations.com. Also added the clay dots that I love from oaktreedollshouseminiatures.com

This is one of those sets of nails that I was dreaming about. It's weird a design or idea will get stuck in my head when I'm trying to fall asleep and I just have to get it out the next day or I go crazy.... Oh wait I already am crazy!

I'm just loving this design. Just a cute Halloween combination. The silver is one of my favorites from Young Nails. It is called Hologram. It works super good in a fade.
