Jewelled fingers mani

Hi guys
Today's mani inspiration was from the amazing nailed it she had done this mani quite long ago when I didn't even begin blogging but it's simplistic beauty really stole my heart.
So here's my version.

I used OPI Samoan sand as my base and used the smallest dotting tool for the black pearls and studs both from Konad.

For those who are wondering I've posed against a lamp stand while in my hotel room in Singapore :)

Here's a bonus shot
Hope you guys liked my effort.

Swatch and review of OPI Panda-monium Pink with barbie inspired floral mani

Hello lovlies,
Hope you doing great. Today I have a swatch of the lovely OPI Panda-monium Pink. This polish I swear looks like a dream. You can see for yourself below, it is two coats without top coat in natural sunlight.

As you can see its a lovely baby pink and as smooth as butter. It gave me an almost even coverage in two coats but I can see a few steaks,  guess they would be fine in three thin coats or two thick coats. For a lovely collage you can check out my Instagram. Overall I'd recommend this color for every pink lover and those who like muted shades. 

Now for the nail art that I did on this. 

I freehanded the design using my little art brush and layered the flowers a bit. I guess I achieved what I was looking for. This reminds me of the prints on most barbie products and hence the name. I topped off the design with China Glaze fairy dust to add that extra pizzas to it. 😍💅

Watermelon mani again but improved

Hi guys
I'm so overwhelmed with all the love you've been showering on me and my blog. All the ideas, suggestions, criticism all is highly appreciated. I take each one of them very seriously and therefore wheni decided to test how far I've come as an artist I recreated this watermelon mani.

I used the same colours as before which you can see here 
I know I can do a better job maybe in future but as of now I'm really content with how far I've come.
Here's a little comparison of both the current and previous manis.
 Once again thanks for stopping by. :)

Watercolour effect poppies

Hi everyone
I don't know what it is but lately I'm literally obsessed with floral mani. I just can't have enough of it maybe because I feel my free handing skills have improved great deal and so I'm on the lookout for floral manis all the time.
My biggest source of inspiration these days is Instagram and that is where I found this amazing mani by Lucy from lucysstash she's even got a video tutorial you should check it out.

I used OPI Samoan Sand as the base and used acetone to thin down OPI Where Did Suzi's Mango and Toucan Do It If You Try,  to make the poppies.
I couldn't really think of much with the leaves and honestly doing watercolour effect with polish is very tiring cos it dries before you can bat an eyelid.
Anyways I'll try with acrylic colours next.
