Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Fireworks!!

July 04, 2012 2 Comments

Hello everyone! 

Today is the 4th of July and on this day displays of fireworks take place across the U.S.  I am Maltese and my country is renowned for its fireworks.  We have fireworks displays all summer during our village “festa”, and this is what inspired this NOTD post!

The above pictures were taken before I applied a top coat.

I just love fireworks, don’t you?  Happy 4th of July, U.S.! J 

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): “Endless Summer”

June 16, 2012 0 Comments

Hello everyone!  Are any of you football (soccer) fans? 

If you are, you certainly know that the UEFA EURO 2012 is taking place.  I'm not a fan, although I am rooting for Spain (as always) and France too – Allez les Blues!

Anyway, yesterday’s winners; France and England inspired this NOTD post.

inspired by the flag of France
This is more subtle and definitely more wearable than having a flag on each finger nail!  ;)

inspired by the flag of England
You can draw this on your ring finger and/or your thumb.  Or you can even draw ten little flags if you like!

"Endless Summer" by Oceana is the official song for the UEFA EURO 2012.  Enjoy... 

Do you like the song?

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?

Nails Of The Day (NOTD): Neon, polka dots and glitter?!

February 02, 2012 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today I wasn’t sure how I was going to do my nails, so I combined three of my favourite looks in one. 

A bright neon colour, polka dots and glitter!

First I applied a single coat of base coat, and then I applied one coat of Tangerine nail polish.

Next, I dipped the rounded ends of a bobby pin in the Red nail polish and painted three dots in the middle of each nail. (You don’t need a professional dotting tool for this design.)

Then, I applied a coat of Silver and Red glitter nail polish.  And finally, I sealed with a coat of top coat.

I think the combination of bright neon colour, polka dots and glitter looks quite good.  What do you think?  I hope you enjoyed this post.
