Calm Spring Nail Tutorial

For the video click on the link below:

Sorry but after making a tutorial for this I don't think I want to do a step by step post on this tutorial.

For the base color I used Da Bush by Essie, a creamy light green with soft grey muted color. Swatch of Da Bush :

 I stamped using image plate m81 by Konad along with red Konad stamping polish. Final results without a glittery top coat:

Hope you liked the final results of my manicure.

Glittery Floral Nail Tutorial / Design

I did this design a while back but forgot to post it.

For the base color I used Road House Blues by OPI, a creamy dark blue color. As much as I love this color that's how hard it is to capture it on camera. Swatch:
Using flash:

Simple Stamping

Different people use different techniques to relax when they are stressed out. I usually do my nails to lower my stress level (which usually works); was hoping for the same today so I changed my manicure after 1 day but it didn't work I still have a terrible migraine.

For today's manicure I used You Hut or Mine by essie as my base color. It's a really pretty rose pink color with hint of shimmer. Swatch of Your Hut or Mine (with flash):
 Your Hut or Mine in sunlight (in real life the shimmer is more noticeable):
I wanted to try a different polish for stamping so I used Black Hole by Kleancolor. Black Hole is a maroon nail polish with hint of shimmer in it <= I think should have tried a darker color over rose pink but to make it pop out more. Anyways I stamped using konad plate m78 and the final result:

Hope you guys enjoyed my manicure for the day. I almost forgot to mention I found a store close to my house that sells Kleancolor nail polish for only $2, so honest truth for a polish that cost only $2 it stamped pretty well.

Simple stamping with BM-206

I don't know if it's just me or not but lately I've been going for light or either girly colors (I'm the type who usually avoids girly girls like pink and red). So for the next few weeks (up until my exams start) I might be posting some simple manicures.

For today's manicure I used Dove by Zoya as my base colour. Swatch of Dove by Zoya:

I stamped using Konad's pink polish (for stamping) with bundle monster image plate BM-206 (from the second set). Final result with flash:

 Without flash:
Hope you liked the final results.

Tribal nails using Konad m85

Swatch of very structured by essi:

Before stamping using konad plate m85, I applied Be Seen in Green by Maybelline and an off-white nail polish (to lighten the brown) using a cosmetic sponge. The final product:
Arghhh I've tried resizing and re-uploading the pictures in this post more than 3 times but they keep on changing directions on me so sorry about that.

Simple water decal

I did this manicure using water decal a while back (sometime early February to be more exact). I thought I'd share the design with you especially since I haven't done my nails since February (I’ve cut them down twice since then). I used Flyin' High by china glaze as a base color and applied flower and butterfly water decals on top. The water decals I used in this design, I bought them from ebay.
 Swatch of Flyin' high by China Glaze:

Final result for the manicure:

The final design kind of looked a bit fake so I added Be Seen in Green by Maybelline using a cosmetic sponge. The pictures didn't turn out that great (even though the design looked really pretty in person) because I forgot to change the light.

Hope you guys liked the design.
