Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Revamped gel manicure

May 07, 2014 1 Comments

Hello everyone!

Remember the glitter gel manicure I showed you in my previous NOTD post?  Well it's been two weeks and as you can see in the photos below, now it doesn't look as good!

I don't want to remove it yet (I'm worried the process will damage my nails), so I decided to revamp it!

On my glitter nails, I used a Shimmery Burgundy nail polish to paint a v-shape over the gap between my cuticles and the gel.  I also applied two coats of  the same polish over the teal colour.  I sealed this manicure with one coat of top coat, as usual.

I really like the shimmery burgundy and gold colour combination!

With this revamped mani I hope I can put off removing the gel for at least a week, allowing my nail to grow a little longer.

Do you like my revamped gel mani?  Tell me in the comments below!

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Glitter gel manicure

April 23, 2014 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

My brother is getting married next Friday so I decided to get a manicure that compliments my dress.  I was worried my nails would break or chip at the last minute so I opted for a gel manicure.  

Gel manicure is a process that gives you an instant dry manicure that supposedly lasts for 14 chip-proof days.  It is applied in layers and each layer is sealed under a U.V. lamp.  

Scroll down for more... 

Although I am happy with my nails now, I’m a bit worried about eventually removing the gel.  It’s going to be a lot tougher to remove than a regular nail polish. 

To remove the gel you either need to soak your nails in pure acetone, which is VERY drying or FILE IT OFF!

I'll keep you posted!  In the meantime I would like to hear from you.  Who had gel nails before?  Would you consider getting them?  Leave a comment and let me know.

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Birthday confetti

May 30, 2013 3 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today is my 28th birthday and this is a special NOTD post! (tutorial below J)

These are the perfect nails for your birthday or any fun spring/summer event.


I started with a coat of white polish, the white will make the bright colours on top of it pop!  Then I used a dotting tool/head of a bobby pin dipped in the polish to create the confetti.  I used neon pink, orange and orange glitter.  To create some contrast and add some sparkle, I finished with a gold glitter top coat.

I love the end result!  I hope you like it too.

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): DIY glitter nail polish

February 28, 2012 4 Comments

Hello everyone!

As some of you might have notice (from my previous NOTD posts) I love glitter nail polish.  So today I decided I wanted to try and make my own customised glitter nail polish!

Glitter nail polish is easy to make yourself and you can customise it to your liking.

This is what my DIY glitter nail polish looks like:

If you would like to make your own glitter nail polish, keep reading!

Here's what you’ll need:
  • Glitter of your choice (I used a multicoloured glitter)
  • Clear nail polish
  • Paper funnel


Make a paper funnel.  Tip: If your clear polish is full, you should pour some out to make room for the glitter! Or wait until you've used up some of it.

Place the funnel over the nail polish bottle and pour in a little bit of glitter at a time.  Close the bottle and shake well.

 And voilà!  There you have it: DIY glitter nail polish!

 one coat

 two coats

This was my first tryAs you can see, the glitter colour dissolved in the clear nail polish giving it a purple tint

I actually like the way it turn out!  What do you think?

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Blue glitter on greenish base

February 16, 2012 0 Comments

Hello everyone! This is just a quick post to show you my NOTD.

So, this is what I’m wearing on my finger nails today.

First, I applied a layer of base coat and one coat of Egyptian Gold nail polish.

Then, I applied one coat of Blue glitter and a clear top coat.

I just purchased this Blue glitter nail polish and couldn’t wait to try it.  I like the way it looks on this greenish base colour.  What do you think?  

Hope you enjoyed this quick post!

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Valentine’s Day nail art

February 08, 2012 4 Comments
Hello everyone!  

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and although I don’t celebrate it, I thought it would be fun to decorate my nails for the occasion!

This is what my V-Day inspired nails look like!

Here's a step by step tutorial:

  •  Apply a base coat (to keep your polish from staining your nails) and let it dry completely

  • Now take small pieces of tape, and stick them where you do not want any red nail polish. 

  • Next, take your red nail polish and paint the tip of each fingernail.  Let this layer dry really well before removing the tape. 

  • Once the red polish is completely dry, remove the tape very slowly.

  • Now paint a small heart on each fingernail.  This is very easy; just draw a “V” shape!

  • Lastly, apply a clear top coat and you’re done.

Let me know if you like my V-Day inspired nails!  I would also like to know; what type of posts would you like to see on Skin Care Suggestions?
