Ombre Nails Tutorial

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

It's been more than a year since my last tutorial. Oopsy.

Decided to do this tutorial cause it's the end of the year (OMGWTFBBQ ALREADY?!) and I'm sure you guys will be swamped with loads of events/gatherings/celebrations and whatnots. So this super simple and super quick nail tutorial is for those who want pretty nails without paying for manicure. Not that we are cheap but it's always good to save money!

What I'm using for this tutorial:
  • Topshop Base/Top Coat
  • Face Shop Glitter Gold Polish
  • NARS Jungle Red Polish
  • Skin Food Base Coat

What you need for this tutorial:
  • Base & Top Coats
  • 2 Nail Polish (choose contrasting colours like Black/White or Purple/Silver)
  • Scissors
  • Sponge (can be kitchen or makeup sponge as long as the holes aren't too fine)
  • Cotton Buds
  • Nail Polish Remover
Step 1: Base Coat then Base Colour (one or two coats). The NARS polish wasn't really nice with just one coat so I applied two coats.

Step 2: Cut the sponge so that the width is about the same as your nails. If you're afraid that you might ruin your nails, do Step 2 before Step 1.

Step 3: When Base Colour is dry, apply Top Colour on the tip of the sponge, dab away the excess polish on a piece of unwanted paper/paper tissue (RECYCLE) then slowly dab the Top Colour starting from the tip of your nails and move inwards. You might want to experiment with the dabbing part first so that you can achieve the effect that you want. More or less ombre, up to you!

Step 4: Apply Top Coat after the polish is dry and remove excess polish on fingers with cotton buds and polish remover.

And that's all you need to do. SO EASY RIGHT?! Have fun painting your nails!



Cat Nip

Monday, October 29, 2012

So sorry for being away! I was rather busy with unimportant stuff like bazaars, halloween and yea you get the idea.

Anyhoos, wore this when I was out with Lenne and Maggus a couple days before my birthday for a super old school hang out day. The theme was cats, don't ask why cause I don't know too. Went for bowling, played Bishi Bashi and Para Para (we forced Mags to Para) at the arcade and caught a movie. It was already an awesome day and it became more awesome when they surprised me right after the movie with Sonia and Nat popping out of nowhere (actually from the toilet) with cupcakes! I was so touched, thank you gais. ;_;

On a sidenote, WE GOT THE 2NE1 CONCERT TICKETS! Whoop whoop!

Tank top, Topshop. Lenin with leather patch jacket, Cat ear cap, White pleather shorts & Symmetrical necklace, all from TB. Geometric cutout clutch, Zara. Booties, Sam Edelman Zoe.

Yeah.. So I got another pair of shoes. *guilty smile*

Went to the Pedder Warehouse Sale last weekend with Arissa and man it was like aunties snatching for the freshest fish in the wet market. We were there around 10-15mins after the door was opened to the preview guests and most of the good stuff were gone already. Sucks to have the same feet size as almost everyone else there. At the end of the day we still managed to get a pair each and we're both very happy with our shoes!

Got a pair of Chloé Tuscon Crisscross Wedges cause it's a very classic design and I love the soft leather.

Anyhoos, I'm giving away a pair of VIP invites to Digital Fashion Week OwnMuse SS13 Show on the 21st October 9pm! Sophie Sumner of ANTM Cycle 18 will be walking for this show! Just follow me on Instagram and tell me why I should give you that pair of VIP tickets! You have to comment under this photo on Instagram in order to qualify. Giveaway ends on 17th October 10pm!

Oh and don't forget that the Goodie Bag Giveaway ends this Wednesday at 10pm as well!
