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".

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!
