Hi everyone, thanks for visiting and viewing my site... I created this blog for one particular reason... and that is "To express my affection for nail art design".. 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...). All my posts are my original designs. Each design takes a lot of time, effort, and thinking... I'm sure all those who are into these stuff knows what I'm saying... Thanks again... GOD BLESS...

"Democracy at its Best"

Hi to all! Today June 12,2010 we are celebrating our 112th independence day here in the Philippines! Congrats to our newly elected President Benigno Aquino III! Btw today's mani is very patriotic, I submitted it to weekly challenge of polishhoarderdisorder check her awesome blog, I love reading her blog cause there are lots of interesting things you will also like. I enjoy doing this mani, when you look at my previous post, this is the first mani I did.. But as you can see in the picture. I added some modifications.. In my thumbnail, I drew an image of the Philippine flag, in my index, middle and pinky fingernails I used sponged technique, then I drew the 3 star and a sun emblem,I was inspired by the rapper/singer Francis M. I knew everybody knows him, especially when you're here in the Philippines, and in my ring fingernail I applied white base coat, sponged it and drew a yellow ribbon which is the president-elects' symbol, and "Laban" which means "Fight" in English language.
Hope you like it! God Bless you all!
MABUHAY!

Explanation of the Flag
Each part of the Philippine flag has a specific meaning as follows:

The blue field stands for common unity and the noble desires of the Filipino people.
The white triangle with equal sides of the flag is symbolic of equality among men.
The white field stands for purity.
The sun stands for the gigantic strides that have been made by the Sons of the land on the road to progress and civilization.
The eight rays of the sun in the triangle represent the first eight united provinces that revolted for independence - Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga and Tarlac.
The three stars in the triangle stand for the three major geographical divisions of the country which are Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The red field symbolizes the eagerness of the Filipino people to shed blood in defense for their country
