Little Red Riding Hood Nail Art

I did this design ages ago. How could I possibly have forgotten about this. Well, little red is lacking a nose (noseless due to the lack of single haired brushes) but otherwise the design isn't half bad. She also looks too scared but, whatever. (Oh, but, how much more scared would she be, if she only knew how the story ends.)

Cyber Gothic Nail Art

I really suck at this posting thing. I have been doing acrylic nails like a madman for the last few days, the only reason I am taking time off and doing a blog post is that I have an acrylic brush stuck on the bottom of my dappen dish. You know how they say you should leave the brush in monomer for the night if it is too hard to use. Well like I told you, that didn't end too well. Anyone have any ideas?
Getting back on topic, here's the design

Rainbow Saran Wrap Mani

This is a review for round silver studs from KKCenterHk.

Gosh, I haven't used acrylics in ages. And thanks to that, my skills using them have dropped tremendously. Oh well. I have been doing a lot of acrylic designs in the past few days. But, as they're just for practice I probably won't be posting any. I have got like the cheapest acrylic powders you can find, could that effect the final result? Yeah, maybe. I messed up at least 4 or 5 bows. But I really like how the bows look on this mani.

Girly Skull Nail Art

This is a review for the striped bluesea from KKCenterHK.
I believe I have said this before, but I am a huge sucker for bows and skulls. And I have no idea why. I actually had these nails when I received the bluesea, originally the skull had a 2D bow, but I just thought the  3D bows would look even better on this mani. Just look how cute that flirty little skull is :).
And look how cutely packed the bows are in that miniature baggie. Aww. And who knew these cute thingies are called bluesea.

Rainbow Polka Dot Nail Art

This is a review for Born Pretty Store's multicolor rhinestones.
I really really love polka dots. The biggest problem with them is that they always come out different sized, no matter what tool you use. Luckily I found this product, with which I can have perfectly same sized dots. While it really is what it says, I mean round rhinestones, and there is nothing wrong with the product itself, I still had some problems using it. 
As you can see from the photo, I had quite a severe case of bubbling around the rhinestones. And I have no idea how to avoid that. It's really a shame since these are so cute in the box and were on the nail as well, before top coating. Does anyone have any advice?

Kuwait Inspired Nails

I did these for a competition a while ago. Which I got first place in. I got a 100 dollar gift certificate to Amazon. Probably the biggest prize I have ever gotten, even though like 40 percent of it went on shipping. Id just like to point out how moronic the amazon international shipping is. You don't get to see how much the shipping is until you check out, also only at check out you can find out if you actually can buy the product. Never shopping in amazon again. But, enough complaining, here is the design.
I'm not fully pleased with the city landscape. But, in my defence, again, I found out about the competition three hours before the closing time. However I do love how the translucent glitter looks in the sky.
