Momicure! Because sharing is caring! :)

Mom2 Mom1

 

When someone cooks, cleans, and does laundry for you it’s only fair to pay them back with a manicure every once in a while. Mom’s fav is a french manicure. For this look I used OPI Base Coat, Essie’s Sugar Daddy, Essie’s Blanc and Seche Vite top coat. I was quite happy with how it turned out (mom was too). 🙂

It’s weird painting someone else’s nails! It took me a while to get confident at it. It’s definitely not the same as doing your own. It’s good practice though! 🙂

Santa Claus Nails :)

I love Christmas!! 🙂 My nails are making me smile today. My birthday is Christmas day so it’s always been a really special day for me.

I googled Christmas nail art and a version of this manicure caught my eye. I swapped silver glittery polish for silver nail tape. You can check out that manicure here.

Bridal Manicure

1A

Next year on August first I am getting married! (yay!) 🙂 So, I’ve been thinking about what kind of manicure I should have for my wedding day. I’m still not sure what I want so I’m just experimenting with lots of different looks and styles. I’m pretty sure I will eventually decide on something really simple and elegant. When I googled bridal manicures I really didn’t like what I saw. I definitely don’t want a Kardashian inspired look!

This look is really simple. I used a Konad stamping plate m56. I wanted a nice delicate french manicure look. I like the lace effect, it’s pretty.

So, there will be many more bridal manicures over the next few months as I play around with different looks.  I’d appreciate any advice from nail art bloggers! What manicure did you rock on your wedding day? 1B 1C

Breast Cancer Awareness Manicure

October is breast cancer awareness month. I didn’t want to let the month end without creating a manicure inspired by this theme. I’m no expert on this topic so I’m not going to pretend I am. Here’s a link if you’re interested in what it’s all about. http://www.nbcam.org/

Here’s what I used for this manicure.

I had so much fun giving each nail a different look! I really love this manicure! My favorite nail is the red middle finger, so bling! 🙂

Which one is your favorite?

Floral French Tip Nail Transfers

When I bought these I assumed they were stickers and that it would be easy to put them on and file them off. Done in ten mins. Simple. But no. That is not what happened.

I opened them and FACEPALM realised they were transfers not stickers. So I went and got some water and started to out them on. This was my first time using transfer tips. NIGHTMARE!!

When you pull them out of the water and put them on your nail they don’t really stick and THEN you have to file off the excess. So what was happening was I was filing and the tip would start moving at the same time! Super frustrating! I ended up putting on the tip and sticking it down with topcoat then filing off the excess.

I was really annoyed and swore I would never use them again. I cursed a lot (my fiance can testify). But then, when I calmed down, I saw how pretty they looked, AND after two days they hadn’t chipped at all. That is some kind of record for me. So, I think I was a bit harsh and  maybe I will use these again. . . maybe.

Flower French Manicure!

I was in a colorful mood what can I say! I really wanted a bright multicolored manicure. Here’s what I used.

This is my flower wheel. I bought in at an online Korean store. I assumed that they were fake but actually these are real pressed flowers!

Cute aren’t they? 🙂

Here’s a close up of each of my nails.

Here’s today’s look  without the flowers.

Butterflies ‘n’ Bling

OK, where to start? This manicure is the result of me not being able to decide on a ‘look’ and instead trying to combine three different styles! Ever have one of those days where you just can’t decide what to do with your nails? Well, that was this manicure for me!

I started off with a golden glitter nail polish. It’s not a great brand to be honest. Face It is a Korean brand that I think tries to imitate the Body Shop. This polish NEVER seems to dry and chips easily. See bottom photo. I added butterflies to my thumb nail but quickly realized that wouldn’t work on all my nails so I changed to the OPI teal color.

Here’s what I used for this mani. I love love love the OPI ‘Fly’ it’s from the Nicki Minaj Spring 2012 collection. It’s PERFECT. Glides on the nail like a dream, great consistency and it’s so shiny even though it’s not a jelly polish. You could get away with one coat but I prefer two.

Here’s the original color!

 

What do you think of my mani?!!

Don’t Mess With Me Mani

These are my tough girl nails.

Here is what I used to create this manicure. As you’ve probably guessed by now I am a HUGE OPI fan!

I bought the nail art stickers in Japan. I was there recently and was really excited to buy some nail art supplies. Everything was really expensive but I still picked up some nice bits and pieces. (I’m sure these nail stickers can be bought ANYWHERE but since I live in Korea some times nail accessories can be hard to source)
