First Bloom

Hi all, last Sunday, me and my family went out, guess what? I bought some nail stuff.. some of them are my lemmings like etude house and acrylic paint, I also bought some stuff from ebay.. Btw, here's my NOTD, my first try using acrylic paint.. Do you like it? I named it "First Bloom", love the outcome of my design, the color of it is very lively.. I used acrylic paint as base coat,and drew a flower on the corner tip of my nails, then I added some dots.. and last I used wet n' wild Black Magic as top coat... everytime I look at it, it feels like I'm in a garden filled with flowers. Look how pretty the flower is.. I like them! Hope you also will.. ^.^

Vintage Flower NOTD + Color It Red NailArt Contest

Hi all! It's a wonderful sunny Saturday! We woke up early this morning, went over to my parents' house, then just drove around all morning... I was inspired by the nice view, I felt relaxed and comfortable. Here's the mani I made, vintage flower, I love the color of this, usually I'm into abstract design, but now I'm inlove with this vintage flower I made. I also noticed that my nails grew in length faster, it's only been a month since I cut it down.. Anyway, hope you like my NOTD! Have a great weekend! God Bless!

And here's my entry for Rina Alcantara "COLOR IT RED" nail art contest you can choose 3 of your fav entry.. You can also vote for me if you like.. thanks so much in advance..
CLICK HERE to vote...

I enjoyed doing my entry, eventhough it took a lot of time to make, I got my idea from traditional chinese dress... while I was browsing the net, I stumbled upon a picture of early chinese community which gave me that certain idea.. The chinese character in the middle of my nail means "happiness"..
My second entry is "Chameleon Ring" inspired design..
Hope you like them!
