Konad - Henna on nails

I have just started practising on my Konad set and Bundle Monster 21pcs plates. This is so exiciting. I'm inspired to stamp my nails as nicely as Chloe. I painted my nails with OPI 18K Ginza Gold, and did my Konad stamping with Mecca Boadicea. Doesn't it looks like Henna on nails? I think normal nail polish is easier to stamp than Konad Special Polish. The special polish dries too rapidly. Let me try a few more times before I conclude.

Modern French Manicure

I haven't master painting the french white tips, hence decided to do a easier version of the French Manicure, which seems more modern and funky.

I painted a layer nude colour, pasted Scotch Tape and painted a layer of CH Nail #035. It's a pale greenish silvery glitters. I'm wondering if I should paste some nail stickers to enhance it.

I've decided to add some floral...

Nails - Pop Pinky

I was looking through my collection of nail polishes and decided to paint my nails PINK! I chose 3 shades that I think matches well and did the Scotch Tape Mani again. I loved the combination.

I skipped base coat and applied 2 layers of Relvon #140 Blushed.

Then I sticked the Scotch Tape and applied a layer of The Face Shop - PP405.

Once it's totally dried, I sticked the Scotch Tape again and painted a layer of The Face Shop, FACE & it - K16D1. I sticked a simple sticker on the middle finger to enhance the sweet look.

The finished look with a thin layer of top coat.

Nails - CH Nail + Bourjois 1 Seconde

I am very inspired after reading Chloe's blog about her nail designs. I have decided to try out her Scotch Tape Manis technique. Recently I bought a few bottles of nail polish from a pushcart at Liang Court Level 1. It is not the usual brands, but "CH Nail", which I guess is from China. CH Nail is insanely pigmented and easy to apply, and the whole range are glittery colours.

This is a single coat of CH Nail, Colour 047, applied on OPI base coat.

I think I am going to leave it like this, a single coat without any top coat to test the durability. I like this shade. It's like brown-grey-blackish glitters, quite unique!

I think this shade may be rather harsh on my hands, hence I decided to do the Scotch Tape Manis with CH Nail Colour #042. I applied 2 coats of Bourjois #2602, a fine shimmery light pink and then did the Scotch Tape Manis with CH Nail Colour 042. I love how the combination looks.


Lovely! This is very suitable for work. I am wondering if I should apply top coat, maybe I should leave it as it is to test the durability as well. I love the different texture of these 2 polishes, CH nail is matte and glittery, but Bourjois is smooth and shiny.

The two products that I used for this set of nails: CH Nail Colour #042 and Bourjois 1 Seconde #2602

I am going to follow Chloe's blog for her easy and pretty DIY nails!
