Nail Art: Naruto

Yay! New nail art. :) I used to be a fan of Naruto until I missed a lot of chapters in the manga and episodes in the anime. When that happened, I stopped reading and watching. I just asked my friends about it. Today, I decided to make a Naruto nail art. I originally planned to have chibis for the 6 fake nails but after doing Sakura, I got tired so I just improvised. 

Close-up picture of the designs :)
L to R: Naruto's eyes in Shippuden, Sharingan, Konoha symbol

If you can see here, my beige paint kind of messed up Naruto's face. Since the paint is a bit old, it's no longer of good quality. I still don't want to throw it away since I could still use it for practices like this. Good news is my mom will buy me a new set of acrylic paint tomorrow. Yay! :)

Let me know what you think of this nail art.

Nail Art: Nightmare Before Christmas

Hey everyone. Here's a new nail art. I still did it on false nails because I had to cut my nails short for my clinical duty. *sniff* Today, I decided to make a nail art of Nightmare Before Christmas. Sad to say I haven't seen the movie. One of my friends told me that I should watch it but I'm to lazy. Haha. Anyway, here's the nail art.

Instead of the usual one nail is to one face nail art, I decided to try to make a nail art of one whole image. The birds are kind of off but I just painted them. 

Thanks for reading. Let me know what you think.

Nail art: One Piece

Hello there! :) I'm here again with another nail art. I just finished doing this. I started last night but I was so tired to finish it because I had hospital duty yesterday morning. I decided to finish it when I woke up. This is for those manga fans especially the fans of One Piece. I'm not really a fan but my boyfriend keeps on mentioning it. He then challenged me to make a nail art of it. I know it's a bit messy. I'm still learning how to use acrylic paint. 
I bought the fake nails yesterday at the mall. It was really cheap compared to the ones I see on the internet so I bought it. When I went home and I decided to use it, I noticed that the set was good for 6 nails. Haha. Anyway, I just decided to use it for practice purposes. 

So here are the photos of my One Piece nail art. :)

Acrylic paint is really good for nail arts. It's easier to blend. It's ability to dry fast is both an advantage and disadvantage. Because it dries fast, there is lesser chance of smudging. However, the paint on your palette dries fast too. In order to avoid that, I just spray water on the paint to prevent it from drying.

I hope you liked it. :)

Nail art: Phineas and Ferb

I was itching to do a Phineas and Ferb nail art but I still didn't want to erase my MIB 3 nail art. I decided to do it on false nails. So here I painted Phineas, Ferb and their sister Candace. Candace didn't turn out good. (T . T) I need more practice.

Let me know what you think. o(^▽^)o

Nail Art: Men in Black 3

Annyeong~! This is just a short post about my new nail art. Since the movie MIB:3 is coming up, I figured I'd do a nail art of it. I didn't put much effort on this. Will is actually really ugly. Lol. I don't know how to do his mustache. Tsk tsk. Anyway, I hope you like my new nail art. :D

Nail Art: Dark Shadows

I have finally decided to remove my 2NE1 nail art since it was already chipping off. *sniff* Anyway, while I was searching the internet, I found a nail art done by Miss Rina Alcantara and I decided to make my own Dark Shadows nail art. I haven't seen the movie, though. I might just download it when it's available on the internet. Pirate. Rawr. 

This is the finished product. Sorry about the eyes. I put too much pressure on the strokes. *cries*

This is what I did first. I painted my nails black and white on the middle finger.
I drew Johnny Depp's face on the middle finger. Sorry again about the eyes. :(

Using the sponging method, I added red gradient at the bottom. It's not really that noticeable though. I need to buy a new red nail polish. I then added silver glitters above the red part. After which, I applied top coat to make it shine. :)

New hobby: Papercrafting

I found a new pastime aside from doing my nails and decoden. It's papercrafting. It's actually quite easy if you just use the pre-made layouts. I download the layouts from Cubeecraft, print them, cut them and just fold them correctly. If you are bored, I suggest you do papercrafting. :) Here are some of the things I made:

This is a gray Iron Man. I wanted to make the red one but we still didn't have colored ink. :( Good thing they have a layout for this.

Of course, Hello Kitty should always be present. :) I asked my mom this morning to buy colored ink and when she came back, I immediately printed this and started cutting and folding. I know she has a square head but I still don't know how to make those papercrafts with spherical heads and very detailed hair.

This ghost is actually the first papercraft I made. He just looks funny, plus as I've said, we still didn't have colored ink yesterday. Nevertheless, I still find him cute. 

Iron Man VS Hello Kitty? Haha. I wonder how it would turn out. :)

Let me know how your papercraft turned out. :)

Nail art tutorial: Guinea Pig

I'm going to make a tutorial on how to make a guinea pig nail art. I didn't use my own nails, instead I used fake nails. :) I still don't want to remove my 2NE1 nail art. Let's begin with the tutorial. 

The first step is to apply base coat. It's always important to protect your nails from staining. You don't want to have yellow nails.
The next step is to make a triangle. You can first make the outline then fill in the space. It doesn't have to  be a perfect triangle. You can also make the lines a bit curvy so the edges would not look sharp.

Using an orange nail polish, color the half of the triangle as shown above. Don't let it reach the base of the triangle.

With your dotting tool and a black nail polish, create two big circles which will serve as your guinea pig's eyes.

Still with your dotting tool and a white nail polish, create a smaller dot inside the black one.

For the nose, you will need a dotting tool and a light pink polish to make an oval. Use a small or thin brush to create two (2) curves for the mouth as shown above.

For the ears, you will need a dotting tool and your orange nail polish. You first create a big circle and beneath it, you make a smaller circle. The ears are somewhat heart shaped without the pointy end. Using a thin brush or a toothpick, line   the edges of the image you have created. Don't forget to put the whiskers! :)

I thought the eyes were a bit blank so I put a smaller dot inside the white dot. Now you have your guinea pig! :)

I hope you liked my tutorial. :)

Nail Art: 2NE1

I just finished doing my nails. :) After doing my nails in honor of Big bang, I thought that I should also do my nails in honor of my favorite girl group, 2NE1. 
Thumb: CL
Index: BOM
Middle: DARA

I was able to attend their concert when they were here in the Philippines and it was amazing. Although it was very short, I enjoyed every second of it. I just couldn't believe that I was actually watching them dance and sing live. :) I hope they return to the Philippines with Big bang. :)

Anyway, I hope you liked it. :)

Nail art: Hello Kitty

Yay! Another Hello Kitty post. :) I decided to paint Hello Kitty. For me, she's the easiest looking character but the most difficult to draw. One mistake and she doesn't look like HK anymore. :( Not really sure if I did her justice with this. The ribbons are a bit messy (sorry for that). I didn't want to paint HK on all my nails so I just painted her ribbon. Lazy me. 

Hope you like it! :)

Second Decoden Project: iPhone Case

I was already bored with my iPhone case so I decided to change its appearance. I used artificial whipped cream and other cute things I could find at home. The bears are from my old hair ties. The letters, on the other hand, are from my bracelet. I just removed them and decided to use them as decorations.

I hope you like my second decoden. :)

Drawing fail

I tried to draw Will Vandom. She's the leader of WITCH, a group of 5 girls with powers. I collected all issues released here in the Philippines until they stopped producing it. :( I was really a fan. I wanted my own heart of kandrakar. XD Anyway, forgive my ugly drawing. :( I just wanted to share it. ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

Nail Art: BIGBANG!

This is my new nail art. I'm an avid fan of BIGBANG, a K-pop group. I decided to do my nails in honor of them. :) 

Thumb: G-dragon
Index finger: Daesung with black hair
Middle finger: Taeyang
Ring finger: Seungri
Pinky: TOP 

I'm so sorry I won't be able to make a tutorial for this. These were free-handed. :( If I could find an easier way to do them, I'd make a tutorial.

This is my nail dryer. My boyfriend gave it to me 2 days ago. :) He spoils me.
