Happy New Year! Year of the Snake Nails

Dear Readers,

I just finished my nail design for new year. 2013 is the year of the snake according to the Chinese calendar and I wanted to base my design on this. Chinese new year is going to be on February 10th, you still have time to do this nail art ;).

Here is what I came up with:
(pictures can be enlarged)

This is how I made this design:
-I started with a sheer beige nail polish as the base + 2 coats of OPI - Pirouette my Whistle
-I used Oumaxi dark green acrylic paint and painted the snake in a shape that resembles the 2013 numbers and the Happy New Year letters.
-Painted small lines and eyes on the snake using Oumaxi gold paint. I also painted the tongue with red paint from the same brand.
-Added floral nail stickers and a little bit of gold flake on the empty spaces and finished up with Out the Door top coat.

I love the outcome. It is the 1st time I use acrylic paint and I have to say that I love it, way better than using nail polish to draw on my nails. If I made a mistake, I can just scratch it off when dried or swipe it with a damp napkin. Also, my freehand nail art does not smudge when applying top coat!
I don't do freehand nail art often and I wanted to do something special for New Year.
I hope you like this nail art ;)

I wish all of  you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Let it Snow! - Christmas Nail Art

Hello, dear readers! Are you prepared for Christmas?

Here's the last Christmas nail art I did. This time, I used Color Club - Cold Metal as the base. I stamped snowflakes designs from XL K plate. To add more to this nail art, I applied matte white glitter one by one.
It's very simple but I really liked the end result.
Here are other Christmas nail art that I've done previously in case you would like to take a look... You still have time to do some cute nail art! (Click on the images to redirect you to the post)

That's it for today! I really wish all of you a Merry Christmas in the company of your loved ones. Take care!

Lovely Christmas Nail Art

Christmas is around the corner and I would like to show you the nail art that I will be wearing this time.

I called it Lovely Christmas because of the snowflakes... If you look closely, the bigger ones have hearts on them. Those snow flakes looks like a hybrid of Valentines and Christmas. I also thought that using red as the base would be a perfect match for the heart-snowflakes.

(Pictures can be enlarged)

For this nail art, I applied french tip guides on the moons of my nails and painted my nails red using Color Club Red - Velvet to give a half moon manicure. After that, I applied nail art stickers with snowflake and heart shapes. I also applied iridescent glitter from Kleancolor - Sugar coat to give an extra sparkle.

I hope you like this nail art as much as I do ;-) I will be posting another Christmas nail art soon.
