24: Coloured 3D nail art

Hi Everybody!.. (Hi Dr. Nick!..)

Gosh I am such a loser haha. Did any of you get that Dr. Nick joke up there? Aaanyways :D I wanted to post a super post today but for some reason I'm having so much trouble uploading my pictures! Boo Blogger! So I guess I'll just post whatever I can for you. I used my colour acrylic powders today and gosh they were super fun! I made 4-5 things but honestly I'm not so good at coordinating with colours so I had to scrap some :p Today was also the first time I used my heart and star shaped punchers yay! I bought these a while ago and now I have finally used them. They're so convenient and easy to use. Now on with the photooos..

Here are the punchers I was talking about! The pink is a 1/4" heart. The yellow is 1/4" star. And the red is 1/8" heart. They make the end results so nice and pretty :D

All I did was apply the acrylic on tin foil and once it dried I removed the acrylic. Once you have the thin "sheet" of dried acrylic just slip it in the puncher and wahla! Pink heart!

This one is the 1/4" star. I know this is cheating but sometimes I want to just get it done quickly and it's sooooo hard to sculpt a star lol. I've failed millions of times.

This was my first try at coloured 3D nail art. I'm quite happy with the shape of this flower and I love how nice the leaves turned out :D

This was my sorry attempt at a butterfly lol. I tried to put eyes onto it's face but one of them fell off :(

I really wanted to use the red colour in the kit and I had just used white from the butterfly so I decided to make a candy cane. Yuuum. Since it's wintertime here in Sydney I thought it would be fun to make it a Christmas in July theme.

Can't forget the Christmas tree! I used my star puncher to make the Christmas tree star topper :)

Well I guess the Blogger problem is fixed now so until next time! I will see you all very soon!



  1. Oh I don't think the butterfly was a sorry attempt at all!! It's SO cute!!
    You're getting so good at the 3D stuff :) I'm rubbish at things like that!
    Can't wait to see some more!

  2. How cute is that butterfly! You're getting better and better :D

  4. Hi Millie!

    You are just too too kind! The butterfly is missing an eye lol. I'm trying really hard practicing cause my friend's birthday is coming up and I'm going to do her nails :D We'll see how that goes! I'll definitely update you guys xx

  5. Hi Kae Kae!

    Thank you so much for such a nice compliment *blushes* I loveee butterflies. Although I do think the previous butterfly I made (the one with rhinestones) looked a bit better. This one was a bit sloppy cause I had a hard time controlling the consistancy. But thanks anyways xx

  6. Hi Danielle!
