Mine has been a little "eventful". First, my NailTek is getting way too gloopy to be used. Then, I realised that I ran out of cotton too.
All in all, my swatching plans have to be shelved temporarily and a shopping trip is in order. :(
In the meantime, I've decided to try my hand at some Valentine's Day mani!
I had thought to give V-day a miss because yours truly is still unattached. But after seeing some cute manis on my blogger feed, I've decided to indulge myself in nail art too! Who says I can only paint my nails for someone else, right? ;D
So, I was browsing pinterest for inspiration when I chanced upon this picture:
And so I came up with this mani:
|ahh! My thumb made a rare appearance!|
Because I really liked the name Lynnderella came up with for one of her polishes, I've decided to call this mani "Heart Strings" as well! Sorry Lynn! I hope you don't mind! ><
Polishes used: China Glaze Seaspray, China Glaze Fairy Dust, Sally Hansen Insta-dri Flashy Fuchsia, Clatty black and white.
Here's an Instagram with the balloon's string aligned:
And if you have been following me on twitter, you would have spotted me ranting about my lack of ambidexterity. Because I love this mani so much, I've bitten the bullet and attempted to replicate the design on my right:
|Eek! I can't even pose properly with my right!|
It may not be that obvious in the picture but the heart on my right hand is decidedly slanted with the pointy end, well, to the right. It looks less like a balloon, but it's still rather cute... right? LOL!
So, what do you think of this mani? :)
Hopefully I will have the time to try more v-day manis this week!
On a side note, I don't know if any of you've ever felt this way.
Everyday, as I read and comment on the nail blogs I'm following, I always wonder... why the heck am I so good at typing captcha "words"?! Ordinarily, I am a horrible touch-typer. My friends will know that my lecture notes are often ridden with typos. BUT I am surprisingly accurate when I type in the captcha words!
Blogger says, "Please prove you're not a robot."
Then I must be a weirdo. Ah wells. ;p
