Hey! Short post today, lots going on here. 🙂 This is Barefoot in Barcelona and I just made it a little more interesting with some black lace from Etude House.

Today my Glossy Box arrived, so did my swap with Julie from Short and Sweet in Texas! So I’ll have lots to blog about in the next few days! 🙂

I remember buying this colour because I wanted to broaden my colour spectrum. It wasn’t because I loved the shade or anything. But, now I see it and have worn it I really love this color and look. It’s subtle, and smooth, and warm, and I love it!

My Valentine’s Nails

2

Valentine’s day is tomorrow, I can’t wait! But not just because of V day, tomorrow is my last day of work! After 4 years teaching in Korea I will be done! I can’t really believe it, but I am excited and looking forward to the future.

Also, I can’t wait for tomorrow night, Greg and I are going to our favorite restaurant. We love steak and this place is super amazing and romantic. Bliss!

This is the manicure I’ve been wearing for the past few days. I’ve been too busy to get adventurous. It’s really simple. I used OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns and Etude House nail stickers, how lazy am I ?!! 🙂 3 4

Day 8 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Jewelery

1

I don’t know if it’s because I live in Korea or what but it’s so easy to find nail bling here! These cost less than a dollar and are in all the beauty stores. So, I gotta admit this manicure took about 10 mins to do! Yay for the easy ones! I got the stickers from Etude House. It’s a great chain of beauty stores they sell everything from make-up to nail art products all for really cheap.

The one bad thing about these jewel stickers was that they curled up at the ends. It was like they didn’t want to bend! I couldn’t get them to lay flat so I took them off after I photographed this mani. Anyone know how to get around that?

The base polish is Eclipse 103. 2 3 4

Gold Glitter Gradient

1

Yay for EASY nail art!Because let’s face it there are some evenings when I don’t want a manicure to take over an hour 🙂 I already posted about this great gradient kit from Etude house, that post covered the silver kit. Since Christmas seems to be the season for glitter polishes I thought a glitter gradient would give a simple manicure a nice twist and still be really fast to do. (are you getting I’m really pressed for time these days?! lol!)

What do you do when you want a pretty manicure but don’t have the time? Lemme know! I want your ideas haha!!

Moo-tastic

 

I would like to say that there was a logical reason I decided to paint my nails  in cow print, but no. Nope. No reason. Just me being silly one evening and having fun with nail art. 🙂

I love how it turned out! I’m having a joint birthday celebration with my fiance next weekend and the theme is black and white, I might do something with cow/zebra print for that night out 🙂

To get the cow print effect I used my dotting stick. I just kind of pushed the black polish around a little section of the nail until I was happy. It didn’t take long and it wasn’t hard. I also used a thin brush just to round the edges a little.

I like the idea of messing up an elegant french manicure and putting cow print all over it, it made me smile!

The pink is from Etude house. The white was bought at at local beauty store the brand is Prorance.

Gradation Nails 101

I have always found gradation nails hard to do. It sounds easy. You basically paint your nails one color then sponge another color halfway over your nail making it look like it blends in. Simple. Except whenever I try it I end up using too much polish and my nails look pockmarked from all the sponging. Not good. So I gave up on gradation nails. Until I found this beauty.

Literally gradation nails for dummys. 🙂 Yay! Here’s what’s inside. On the top of each cap they literally numbered the bottles in the order you should use them!! It’s foolproof (unless you can’t count).

Apart from this kit all you need is . . .

Apply the first polish over the whole nail, let it dry. Apply the second polish over the last third of the nail with the sponge. I painted the polish directly on the sponge so I wouldn’t waste it. Apply the third polish on the very tip of the nail with the sponge.

Here’s the result. What do you think of my gradation nails for beginners???

Prettyful Pink Mani

I’m not really a girly girl (says the girl who has a nail art blog and loves Taylor Swift) but I love how pretty these nails are! I think my favorite manicures have all been the beautiful ones, not the funky ones. Hmm.

Anyways, this manicure is one I did a while ago. I pulled it from the archives. This week has been cray cray at work and at home so I didn’t have time to get experimental with my polishes. That changes tonight (I’m excited!!).

For this mani I used Face It, (shown) Etude House, (light pink) and OPI Topcoat and I got the nail art jewels in Etude house. Those  brands will probably mean nothing to you unless you live in Korea, sorry!! I used scotch tape to get those lines. I had to wait until the first layer of polish was completely dry to use the tape. Then I put the tape down and painted the light pink over it, pulled it off and voila! I stuck the jewels down with topcoat.

Hope you like the mani. If it’s your first time stopping by the blog PUHLEASE give me feedback !!! I’d love to know what you think of the pictures and the writing.  Please be gentle!! 🙂
