DIY: How To Make Colorful Stamping Polish

Hello, 

Today's post is not an usual post. You all know that I dont have my whole nail collection with me currently and that is why i have just black and white stamping polish and if you are stamping addict like me then you must agree that only black and white stamping polishes aren't enough. 

I thought why not franken some stamping polish with these two basic shades but my tattoo ink set is also packed with my nail stuff, so that wasn't an option either(see the tutorial for that  here in Beaching Nail's tutorial). 

So, i thought to try something which is available easily. First see the result here:

Watermarble with OPI Color Paints!!

Hello, 

I am very excited to share today's manicure. I am a big fan of watermarbling technique. It is little bit tricky but if you figure out what polishes and what kinda water works out for you than it is so much fun to do. I have done watermarble many times but i never tried it in hot and humid weather of India.

Before this attempt i tried couple of time with filtered water but it never worked out, finally i tried normal tap water and it worked. Here is my nail art

Fun Lacquer Million Dollar Dream and Twinkled T Paisley Cyclone Nail Vinyls

Hello,
Today’s manicure is featuring nail art products I fell in love with. I am not a glitter polish loving person.  I like wearing them once in a while but that’s like once in months, therefore I hardly buy glitter polishes now but when I saw FUN Lacquer Million Dollar Dream, I fell in love with it. This is without a doubt most gorgeous golden glitter polish ever. Fun Lacquer later released a holographic version too but I liked original one more. Here’s the manicure I did using Million Dollar Dream(MDD).

Nail That Technique Challenge "March" week 2- Scaled Gradient

Hi, 

This week's theme for Nail That Technique challenge is scaled gradient. First, i did scaled gradient with neon pink and neon purple, though it came out very well but it wasn't looking nice in picture, the neon purple was looking pink in photos so overall it look like a plain pink polish application. Anyway than i looked into my stash and saw two newly released picture polish bottle sitting in helmer. So, i used picture polish Karma(blogger collaboration shade with Sveta Sanders) and Cherish for this nail art.

Nail That Technique Challenge - Week 4: "Reverse Stamping"

Hello, 

I am little late in posting week four challenge manicure for Nail That Technique. The theme for last week was reverse stamping.  

Reverse stamping is also known as stamping decals. When this concept first came out there was two ways of doing it. first method is to stamp on a plastic bag and fill the image, apply top coat and when dries peel it like a decal. Second way is to stamp on stamper head itself and do the rest thing same as first method. Now there is one new way of doing it where you fill the image on stamper itself using nail polishes, when it get dries then you directly stamp it on the nail without applying any top coat on the filled image(unlike previous reverse stamping techniques). 

 For this manicure I used second and third method to see what is more convenient.  I chose tribal design to do reverse stamping and here is my manicure:

White Night Nails- I Love Nail Polish Supernova and Electric Carnival

Hello, 

Last Saturday Melbourne celebrated White Night. If you already dont know, white night is a cultural event which runs from 7pm to 7am(yeah that's right whole night) showing exceptional visual art, exhibitions, spectacular illuminations, music, theatre, special dining experiences, film, design and performances on display in venues and major cultural institutions right across the city centre. Living in city has its own advantages, one of them is you can be out as long as you want without worrying of traffic or crowd in public transport. We were out till 5 in the morning and only came back because i was feeling sleepy and it was still very crowded that time. 

Anyway, I did a nail art to wear for the occasion and here it is:

Nail That Technique Challenge Week 2 - Syrup Gradient: Nail Art and Tutorial

Hello, 

This week's challenge prompt is Syrup Gradient. Last year, I did a manicure with this technique(see here) and I loved how easy and non messy gradient technique it is. Moreover it requires no tool as the gradient effect is created using the nail polish brush itself.

 I first saw this technique on Chalkboard Nails and saw the tutorial on Rebecca Likes Nails. I did single color gradient previously and this time i decided to go with two colors. I loved how this manicure turned out. Have a look yourself: (go till the end of the post to check out video tutorial).
