Caronia "Art of Dance" Collection

Hi guys! How was your holy week?
I'm very happy because I got to spend it with my family especially with my husband who is always busy with his work.
I received my caronia package a day before holy week and I wasn't able to write a blog post because of my busy schedule...
So here's what I received!! A Caronia "The Art of Dance" special collection. 
Included colors - Pique, Chasse and Glissade

I made a ballet shoes stamp for my accent nail (ring finger). I used fun 2 ( fab ur nails) image plate.

 Pique- a peach like color, very feminine and not so opaque, you have to apply 3 coats for full coverage but I really like its shade.
Chasse - my favorite in the collection. It's a perfect blue polish. It's opaque. only needs 2 coats for full coverage. Also Perfect for summer because of the bright blue color.
 Glissade- a cool green! I love this color. Also 2 coats for full coverage.

P.S. To all Filipina artists please support Caronia Philippines!

Childhood Memories

Hi girls!
It's a good thing to start your week with a blessing! Today is another blessed day! I've been sick for the past 2 weeks. and I thank God that I am well now. Thank you Lord for healing me!

I received a package from Born Pretty Store early last week. I really like the nail art plates they sent me. I made 2 versions of a manicure that I entitled "Childhood Memories". 
The first one being a daytime setting, and the other one a night setting. It reminds me of my childhood. Those days when my father would bring me to the carnival. My favorite ride is the carousel. I miss being a kid. But I'm very happy because I see my old self on my kids now...

Anyway, I used colorful studs ($ 4.59 USD)
And a plate ($ 1.99 USD). You can buy them and get

a 10% discount when you use my discount code "SZL91".

1pc Dot Poker Pattern Nail Art Stamp Template - QA29

400pcs 2mm Neon Round Stud Rhinestones Acrylic UV Gel Nail Art Decoration w/box

 I also made a summer watermelon design using QA50 watermelon image plate... I love bornpretty image plates because they are perfectly engraved and I rarely encounter any problem picking up the design... The neon stud is easy to use, and you can create different designs or patterns you like. 

Summer is fast approaching here in our country. End of school year and vacation starts this week.. I'm very happy because my son Jaem got the highest ranking in their class on the 4th and final grading period of the school year. he is the 1st on his class, so happy and we are really proud of him..

Cute Watermelon Nail Art Stamp Template - QA50

Last week, I also received the prize package that I won from Beauty Kingdom's "The Heat Is On" nail art contest...

Here's an updated mani that I made using seche vite "Wonderfully Witty" for stamping. I trimmed down my nails after I made the review on Bornpretty and I really like it!

Materials Used:
etude house bl 601
sponge technique
white studs
seche vite "wonderfully witty" for stamping

Here are the items that I received! a quick swatch of the items that I made. In my photo, I did 2 coats with no top coat. Shot in direct sunlight. I like Seche Vite polishes. They are very opaque and bold, and are also good for stamping. 


Hope you like them! God bless you all!!!
Happy Monday!

Hi guys, I'm excited and surprised! Guess what? I received the package from Simply Spoiled way earlier than what I'm expecting..yay!!! Thank you very much Savanna for a super fast shipping and for the very sweet note enclosed in the package... I'm so happy ... Btw, Here are the items included in the package.. L.A girl polka dot nail art collection (dizzy dots) including 3 L.A girl nail polish (4.5ml each), dotting tool in two different sizes ( that can create large and small dot patterns on nails ), 1 nail art pen (black) and some fimo canes..

Here's the first thing that came into my mind.. Not a typical dot pattern but a Neon Leopard. 
Here's the step by step tutorial (check out the pictures for reference).

1. I used white nail polish for my base coat. (I used white base coat because I'm going to stamp the la girls nail polish just look at the photo and the next step..) 2. Using the nail art protective film (the blue one in the picture), or you can just use any plastic sheet, I applied the l.a nail polish on the film horizontally... 3. I used a stamper to pick the 3 color polish 
4. And stamped it directly on nails.. 5. I used the nail art pen afterwards, I created an uneven square that looks like leopard prints.. 6. I used the dotting tool included in L.A Girls kit to fill the leopard design with colors ..
*For my accent nail design (leopard face) I made it using advanced stamping technique (image plate XXL H) Top coat from (seche vite)

Here's my neon leopard. Hope you like it!!

Kung Hei Fat Choi!!!

Hi guys,
This is my first post for 2014. Before January ends, I would like to thank BORN PRETTY STORE again.. I am blessed to be one of their affiliate.. I made a Golden Buddha mani using the stuff that I received from bornpretty store. In my ring finger (accent nail), I used QA 68 image plate for the buddha pattern design. And for the pointer, middle, and pinky I used konad m70 image plate for the background. I put a small frame-like design, and I fill it with red holo glitter polish to make a 3d stone.. I added some glitters and top coat. Here's the final outcome... I like the color I used..

1pc Nail Art Stamp Template Chinese Style Ancient Buddha Tathagata Pattern QA68 $1.99USD

50Pcs Hot-sell Circle Square Rosette Cross And Key 3D Nail Art Metal Sticker Decoration $2.99USD

For my second mani, I used 3d nail art stone decoration inspired by the marble tiles that I saw while browsing the internet.. I also made a black and white version with hello kitty accent.. Which one do you like better? the colorful one or the black and white?
