The Beauty of Chaos

Hello dear followers! So I have decided that I won't leave this blog to die out after all. But instead I will be changing the theme from nail art to just art :)
So, here is a little something I created some time ago. I hope you like it!
It's oil and some acrylic paint on paper.

Singing Their Hearts Out

Loook at the cute singing froggies!! :)
This design features silver nail stickers from Born Pretty Store.

This is it. My my last post and review. after 168 posts and 2 years I bid farewell to all of my 341 followers. I can't believe I still have regular viewers. I love you guys, I really really do, each and every one of you, who have been with me during all of this time, it has truly been an amazing journey. Maybe one day I will continue writing this blog ans get back my passion for nails, or maybe make this an art blog (as is still adore painting)
But for now,

Comic Book Nails

So I got myself a squishy stamper form Born Pretty Store. It's pretty awesome. The biggest difference in performance it has when compared to a regular stamper, is that it easily covers the entire surface of the nail, leaving no gaps. And with my huge nails, gaping edges have been a problem in every design. I definitely am not going back to my old non-squishy konad stamper.

Pretty in Pink

Or perhaps more like crazy in pink.
The pearls and the big gemstone were sent for me by Born Pretty Store, and I am pathetically late with this post. This was originally meant as something valentines day-ish, but well, it's kind of too 8th of March for that now.

3D Rubber Ducky Nails

This is like the first post I've done in like half a month. Yeah, yeah, I'll burn in nail blogger hell. But like I've said I have been filling out a sketchbook. It is AWESOME. I haven't been so hooked on painting in ages.
There are just so many techniques and materials and ideas, and sooo little time. I mean I started painting on nails, paper is like a whole new world for me. I see all these nail artists that have like ten years of experience painting or graphic design or whatever, meanwhile I was still eating paste ten years ago. So i'm having kind of a experience gap that I'm trying to fill, and I don't plan to post more that three two times a month in the near future. Sorry. Please don't unfollow me :).
Anyway here is a cute little rubber ducky.

Superman To The Rescue

Yes, I know, I'm a horrible blogger. For my new years resolution I bought myself a 80 page sketchbook and promised myself that I will have it filled by may. So I have been really busy with the sketchbook and trying new techniques and materials. Also all my good nail brushes have worn out, so I don't have too much motivation to try to paint new nails. Anyway here's a design that some of you may have seen on pinterest already.
I used MoYou Artist plate 06. Is that even superman? Does that look like superman to you?? My knowledge of superheroes is pathetically limited.

Let it Snow

I have wanted to do a snow themed nail design since forever. I miss snow soo much. And here I am sitting under a palm tree with no hope for it. Sniff.
Are these cute or what. I mean look at the little white sparrow, awww. The stickers are from Born Pretty Store, I also used them in my late Christmas mani. I really really love the stickers, and you get so much of these :). However the white parts aren't completely opaque, as you can see from the snowman on my middle finger.

Rockabilly+ Princess Nails

This is a review for a set of water decals I got from Born Pretty Store. Unfortunately the decals are out of stock right now. I'll edit this post and add a link when they are back. Anyway, love them, easy to apply, vibrant colors etc.
And here's a hyper girly design using the decals. I did the background using the water color technique and stamped swirls from MoYou Princess 13 template on it.

Think Outside The Box- Destroy The Box and Splatter Paint it

This is a review for stamp shaped water decals from Born Pretty Store.
I got a Leonardo da Vinci calendar for Christmas, it's awesome. After hours of staring all the scetches in the calendar, this illegible handwriting water decal immediately made me think on him. So I did a mini black and white copy of one of da Vinci's paintings (it's The Virgin of The Rocks). Since the mani itself is black and white I splatter painted a fun colored background for it. I kind of overdid it, didn't I? O_O
 The website doesn't really give you the measurements (it should). So it's 5,7cm on the longer and 4,4cm on the shorter side. (cm to inch calculator). Anyway, I love these stickers you get so much for $1.99. However for my huge nails one stamp was big enough to cover 5 fingers, so these are more for accent nails. the bend very well leaving no or minimal wrinkling.
I used van Gogh paint for a da Vinci painting, I feel like I have just done a major art crime. Let's just hope da Vinci won't be haunting me any time soon.

Very Late Christmas Nails

Yeah-yeah, I know it's January and I am like a week and a half late, and I wasn't even planning on doing a Christmas nail design this year. But when inspiration knocks you've got to answer. So I was just fooling around with a soft stamping plate I got from KKCenterHk, I was planning on something lace-ish, it ended up looking like wrapping paper, so I decided to go for a Christmas theme.
This is my first mani using soft stamps.(it's the white flowers on red, you can't see well, but they are there) They really are nothing too special, not better nor worse than regular stamping. They are more expensive though, so I prefer metal stamps. But soft ones are a lot better for gifting.

Zodiac Nail Art

Yaay, it's a new year. And I have created a New Year-themed mani using a stamping template from KKCenterHk. I feel I have seen these designs somewhere, are they originally from a Konad template or something? Anyway, the template itself, feels thin and cheap, but I was surprised to learn that it stamped perfectly. And by perfectly, I mean better than Konad or Bundle Monster. Weird. 
I spent waay too much time on doing this. I did a galaxy print in the background, then I added zodiac signs and then added the stamp to the appropriate shape/sign whatever you call that, and then I added a thick coat of gel and kind of ruined it O_O.
