Anyway, I'm a nail art and nail polish fanatic... I'm fond of travelling, drawing, and handcrafting fashion accessories for my family and friends... I love gadgets... I'm also into digital photography and my favorite subject is my nail art designs, and of course my very cute, extremely photogenic, and genetically gifted kid. All comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to all those who will visit my blog... P.S. Thank you for taking time to visit my site, and appreciating my designs... but please (if ever you will use my photos for whatever purpose, please inform me first...).

Elegant chandelier nails + random nail art

 Hello nail art bloggers and welcome month of July!
Hope all of you are doing great! My today's post is from BORN PRETTY STORE. I really like reviewing nail art products, providing some infos about it..
Anyway, I received a blue rhinestone package from bornpretty. it contains 240 pcs, and it comes in different sizes, I actually like it because it is very elegant. The shade of the rhinestone is two toned depending on the light.. I love how it looks on nails..
On my nails, I put different sizes of blue rhinestones.

Bk 01
pueen 51 image plate

Another one is crackle leopard design rhinestone in different colors and shapes, circle and square.
You can use it with or without nail art. just put it on your nails because it already has its own design..

I really like it because before when I use a plastic pallet, the color remains and it's a bit messy. With this stainless holder, you can push the acrylic when it dries, or you can wash directly on the faucet...
One more thing, I used it also for swatching stamp It is very helpful because I have lots of plastic pallet and once I use and forget to clean them, they become messy. This stainless pallet is very handy..

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..

 P.S.
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:

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.

SECHE VITE "WONDERFULLY WITTY"
SECHE VITE "CLEVER & CONFIDENT"
 SECHE VITE "VERSATILE"
