I found out that my boyfriend actually read my blog yesterday! We've been dating for 6 months now and we're going to celebrate tonight with all you can eat sushi and bbq muaahhah :D
Also I tried to do my own acrylic nails for the first time today! I was surprised because it turned out NOT UGLY. It's not the best and certainly not something I would pay for but as a total newb with no experience before I think I did alright. I made the mistake of using a clear powder because for some reason I assumed that pink meant barbie pink but instead it was full on clear. The process was fairly simple and all I did was follow the instructions of the booklet. I'll try to post a full entry on how to do your own acrylic nails at home some other time. Sorry about the dirty nails..
I practiced on my index, middle and ring fingers. I couldn't be bothered to do all 10. Look at how clear the tip is!
My fingers are VERY small and not all the nail tips fit my hands so it was hard to size. Instead I chose to sculpt the nails and used a form.
The finished fingers! Please excuse the ugly looking ring finger. I filed off a lot by accident and it turned out very lumpy :(
My Colour of the Hour was China Glaze's Grape Juice from the Summer Days collection. This swatch was 3 coats.
Anyways I'll be back with a few more nail art samples. I've been hit with a creative bug lately so I hope I can make something out of it :)
PS. This is my new setup for my little nail area. What do you guys think? It's still a bit messy but I'm trying to organize everything by product..
Talk to you later!
