Playboy Bunny

Hi all, Just a quick post for my Playboy Bunny NOTD, love my nails, and the length of it right now, I have so many plates I want to use.. Some of which are still unused and I haven't had the chance to use them. I think I should try to manage and do a nail art plate schedule so that I can use them.. :)
Anyway, I used massini slammin'red as a base coat, this is the most gorgeous and I should say bling bling nail polish that I have, the color really suits my skin tone and I like the holo glitters on it, thanks thriszha for this, I used playboy fauxnad i.p, b104 and b34 star design, I used white and lightpink special polish for stamping and tfs top coat..
Direct Sunlight

With Flash

Blurry Effect to show the holo glitters! (wow)

I will try some nail tip design again definitely... :)

Materials used:
bobbie "vodka on ice" for the base
Allue "Black night out" for the tip
And Flat square-gold

Tattooed On My Nails + Tutorial

Hi all, just want to share a simple tip with regards to nails, when me and my sister went to the mall yesterday, I was looking for nail art stuff that day because I lost my image plate code bm01 last week... Here's how the story went, when we were at the mall, I saw a nail sticker, then a body artificial tattoo... The first thing I remembered upon seeing those items is water decals. So I bought a few... I tried them as soon as I got home.. let me show you my finished product... :)
What do you think? Do you like it??

And a very simple tutorial...
1.Cut a piece of water tattoo that will fit to your nails.Remove the thin plastic.
2.Apply your desired base coat color that will match the tatz. it's either light or dark shade. Let dry.
3.Press the tattoo design on nails,
4.Put a small amount of water on top of paper tatz. dub and slide.
5.Use cotton balls to remove the excess. Let dry.
6.last but not the least, apply top coat. That's it. Nice and very simple. You don't have to spend much. It's easy and affordable you can do it yourself...
Hope you like it! God Bless you all!
