Hi all! Belated happy hearts day everyone! ♥♥♥ Hope you had a lovely valentine, as for me I'm very very happy.. ☻ Anyway, Summer is fast approching here in the Philippines... It's very hot here nowadays. For summer nails, I made a simple mani using dried flowers. If you wish to buy some of them, Born Pretty have lots of nail art stuff including dried flowers. I love dried flowers so much. It looks like a lil'garden on my nails. I got the idea of hot air balloon from thriszha, I remember she made a manicure using this image plate last year. I also used konad m57 i.p. cloud design. It reminds me of the Disney movie "Up", my son love that movie so much that he used to watch it every night before going to sleep. He likes Kevin the big bird and the kid named Russell was so cute!
I like the finished product, it's really meant for summer.. Hope you like it too! God Bless you all!!

Lucky 6

Hi all, 4 days to go before vday! That is also our wedding anniversary! We're celebrating our 6th year as husband and wife.. I really love him so much..For me everyday is special when we're together.. My mani has something to do with our anniversary. I'm not chinese but I love this design very much. One of my fb friend told me that the real meaning of this design in chinese language is "happy, best wishes, and lucky". Sometimes it is used on wedding invitations.. I didn't add that much layering stamp to see the real character of the nail polish.
1st, I applied black with holographic glits n.p as base coat,
Then I used red holo glits on one side, and sally hansen hidden treasure on the other side. I sponged white n.p on the center, and I stamped it with h19 i.p. I used dark red s.p for stamping..Hope you like it! ☻
Btw, I won on nail art express. Thanks to all those who voted for me.
I also received a gift which came from Bless, I really like them all. Thank you very much sis! ♥

Hello Kitty Nails + Random NOTD

HI ALL!! I know many of you guys like hello kitty! Who doesn't'?! I love hello kitty.. Eversince I was in high school I've been collecting hello kitty stickers.. She's super cute right!? hehehe... I looked at my collection this morning and suddenly, an idea sparked in my head, a hello kitty inspired nail design.. I used to have a hello kitty bookmark that looks like the nail design that I made! Btw, I drew a hello kitty on the tip of my nails, using a very thin brush which came from Bornprettystore. I love that brush because it is very firm and the stroke is very accurate, making my freehand drawing hassle free... I don't have any problem using it... I also used m60 konad image plate, china glaze "lemon fizz" and china glaze "sugar high". Then I added a glittery top coat... It's very cute... Love my thumb nails...
