Aku membeli TSF top coat ini karen top coat lamaku sudah habis. Pertama kali pakai ini, rasanya agak2 dingin kalau terkena kulit. Teksturnya sangat cair. Lumayan cepat mengering, tapi nggak cepet sekali. Ini gambarnya ku ambil dari blog-ku yang http://nailartoftheday.blogspot.com, soalnya belum bikin watermark untuk yang blog ini, hehehe...






























Kesimpulan: yaaa lumayan lah dengan harga murce, cepat mengering.

Maybelline Cat Eyes Mascara

Akhirnya, setelah sekian lama ini produk muncul, jadi juga aku mencobanya, hahaha. Kesan pertama, packaging nya bagus. Setelah dibuka sisirnya lucu bentuknya, ngga seperti mascara biasanya. Saat dipakai kurang nyaman sih, agak2 clumpy, tapi setelah latian beberapa kali, mulai terbiasa. Aku mencoba untuk dipake saat tidur. Dan ternyataaa... besoknya pas bangun, mascaranya smudge dikittt banget. Aaaw, mantap lah mascara ini. Harganya juga lumayan murce, yaa standar maybelline lah, hanya 75 ribuan, aku membelinya di carrefour.
Membersihkan mascara ini agak2 sulit, kemarin ada korban sehelai bulmat ku rontok. Bener2 sabar n harus hati-hati nih.

































Kesimpulan: walaupun make nya agak2 tricky, tapi karena sangat waterproof, jadi tetep suka.

    Hawaiian Designs

    Hawaii reminds us of the glorious beaches and Hula dancers dressed in colorful flowers. This theme can also be applied to nail art designs. However, these designs are not very simple. These are suited for those who have a good hand at painting. If you have a skillful hand, you could paint beaches, waves, surfers and Hula dancers on the nails. For those of you who cannot manage to paint these complicated pictures, you could still bring Hawaii on your nails by painting bright flower rings and garlands of your finger nails. You could even paint figures of people in black and then adorn them with colorful flower tiaras and garlands.

    Animal Designs Nail Art

    Tiger, Zebra and Dalmatian designs are quite popular among the animal nail art designs. For the tiger skin nail design, apply a yellow acrylic basal coat. Apply it twice for a thicker and better finish. Then apply smudges of orange color on the nail at different areas. After it dries paint thick zig zag lines using black acrylic paint. The zig zag pattern should be thick at the base and tapering towards the other end. And the patterns must be in alternating fashion. Thich means, if one base is thick, the stripe next to it should be tapering and so on. For a Zebra design, you could do the same by applying white acrylic paint as the basal coat and then paint stripes of black. The stripes of Zebra are not like the Tiger, so paint thinner ones. Have some stripes in one direction and some in the other to make it look like Zebra stripes. You could even add some glitter to make it look more attractive. To create a Dalmatian design, just paint smudges of black paint on a white base.

    Marine Life Nail Art Designs

    For marine life designs, you would require blue acrylic paint and a bit of white acrylic paint for the base coat. Apply transparent varnish onto the blue sea-like coat and then paint tiny fish on the nails. Using green paint, you could draw thin weeds through which the fish are swimming around. A slight touch of a darker shade of green along with the green on the weeds, would give it natural look. A few pebbles can be painted at the base with brown and white paint. Apart from the fish design, you could even consider painting star fish and tiny seahorses on the nails. Whales and dolphins are other good options.

    Snow Nail Art Designs

    You need a shiny metallic shade of nail polish which would serve as the base coat. Take white acrylic paint and by using a thin brush paint a dot on the nail. From this dot, paint 8 lines or spikes, extending from the dot in a circular fashion. Where the spikes end, draw two more spikes, something like one spike branching into another. So you will have a snow flake. You can also paint half snowflakes on the edges of the nails, and to give it a more attractive look, you could also paint one of the snowflakes in blue. In case you do not have metallic nail polish, you could even use blue acrylic paint for the basal coat. However, you will have to use white paint for the snowflakes.
