@essiepolish's "Sugar Daddy"
@chinaglazeofficial's "United"
@daily_charme "Lovelock" // this was totally inspired by @thenailboss hahaha I've been wanting to try this for a while now and I mustered the courage to do so! ️ It's a really simply red/pink glitter gradient with a cut out heart on the accent! "Lovelock" is an amazing glitter topper if you're looking for a red/pink one. The heart glitters require a bit of fishing though! Other than that, exceptional formula as usual // do check out @daily_charme for more stock details on "Lovelock" (do you guys want a video tutorial for this? let me know below!)

followthatway Always a sucker for purples, always. And florals, yes. And big fancy charms hahaha! This was done with @opi_products's "You're Such A Budapest" as a base, layered with @daily_charme's "Seine", a semi translucent baby blue purple jelly with pastel glitters, it's really something different I would recommend wearing this over a light purple base, or doing a jelly gradient on its own ️ The charm is from @daily_charme too and it just fits so perfectly with the colors! couldn't stop staring at my hand after I did this haha! And I poses with this fake flower wreath that's always hanging on my door do check our @daily_charme for stock details on the polish and charm! 6d

followthatway Good Thursday morning! I decided to skip all my lectures today (and miss out on seeing my eye candy omg ahahaha I did not just say that!) because I shall be a good student and finish up my final essay for tomorrow ️So here's something pink, concept inspired by @thenailboss 😎 Featuring @daily_charme's "Anatole" on my middle and pinky, it's a must-get pink/rose gold shade for everyone! The formula is so smooth and I reached opacity in 2-3 thin coats! ️ For my index I used @mintpolishhq's "I Do" with several rhinestones, and @chinaglazeofficial's "Wish On A Starfish" with a @daily_charme seashell charm on the accent! Love the simplicity of this! This photo was taken under direct sunlight and posed with the book Frances Burney's "Evelina" do visit @daily_charme for more stock details on the polish and charm! 2w

followthatway I'm back with one of my favourite indie lines @daily_charme, which never fails to give my mani that elegance that it requires the milky creme white is "Madeleine" from their Paris collection and I used about 2-3 thin coats, wonderful formula, tends to the thicker side and I added two gold stripes on my middle using @opi_products's "All Sparkly and Gold". Last but not least, I finally (FINALLY!!) have a chance to use @daily_charme's Diamond Triplet Charme on my accent nail, which makes this whole mani really clean and bridal and sophisticated and have I mentioned elegant? ️ Do follow @daily_charme for stock details on the polish and the charme! 2w

followthatway My 3rd (?) attempt in doing galaxy nails! I used a ton of polishes for this but namely, @bubblelinapolish's "It's Never Black & White" as the base because it already adds that extra dimension that a galaxy gives, and then I used a milky white jelly to do the white bits first (I find that this works really well rather than just putting white on directly first because you get to map out how you want the nebulas to look like without letting it look too overpoweringly white), then I added a stronger white, and used a dark purple for the dimension at the sides. To add an extra pop of color I used @nblacquer's "Dazzling Date" and then topped it with @squishynpolished's "Miss Piggy at the Disco!" Phew that was a mouthful! Oh and the gold star ring (and also the infinity ring on my middle) is from Mod4rnTrend.com (@jessicafang) 2mon

followthatway Pink glitter gradient using @essiepolish's "Beach Party" and @squishynpolished's "Positively Pink" (a lovely muted rose gold shade) as base, and @chinaglazeofficial's "Hello Gorgeous" + @squishynpolished's Strawberry Kof" (one of the best pink glitters I've ever used!) for the glitter! Check out @squishynpolished's page for more stock details! The lovely heart midi ring is from Mod4rnTrend.com (@jessicafang) || I'm really sorry for the lack of nail posts for the past week(s)! I'll be working on the swatches and nail art this coming week! Stay tuned and thanks for sticking around! 2mon

followthatway Another Valentine's Day mani! This time featuring silver rhinestones and puny roses - this one is really really simple and clean, probably because I (accidentally) made the roses too light I used @bubblelinapolish's "Naughty Nudey" as the base, and then did a random placement of rhinestones, and added several roses (as always, what is a vday mani without some roses HAHA!) The formula for @bubblelinapolish is amazing! I love that she came up with 4 different shades of nudes and each and everyone of it them is really flattering! This is one out of the 4 and it has a pink undertone to it do check out @bubblelinapolish's page for more information on stock details for this polish! 3mon

followthatway I always have this strange mentality that whenever school is going on crazy mode, I should do a full set of nails (meaning all 10 fingernails) and make sure I leave them alone until the crazy period tides over...hopefully that makes sense this one is inspired by the original (I think) Marc Jacobs mani design by @elleandish! I wanted something edgily feminine 😎 and so I used a gold-black color scheme. I'm holding @chinaglazeofficial's "I Herd That" which is also the color on my accent nail. For the rhinestones and micro caviar beads, I did a messily organized placement hahaha! Pardon the cloudy appearance of the rhinestones - I didn't really use nail glue here and I took this photo in a rush haha!️I think this one would be so nice for valentine's day - a shift from the usual pinks and reds! 3mon

followthatway I'm back with another really simple Valentine's Day design! ️ Okay I just love doing French designs nowadays because it's so clean and nice to look at I used @glampaintlacquer's Glam&Romance Valentine Day collection for this mani (a skittle design, in other words)! The nude shade is "Lingerie", the shade on my pinkie is "Rose" and then the one on my middle is "Champagne" 😙 I love love love this collection! It's such a simple trio and the color choices are really sweet and wearable throughout the year! Exceptional formula as always, Ashley! @glampaintlacquer was the first ever indie brand I ever swatched and reviewed for and I'm so happy that I still have the opportunity to do so, especially with such pretty colors and formula! Yay to indie brands! for more information, please visit @glampaintlacquer! 3mon

followthatway Happy 3rd day of Chinese New Year I honestly haven't been sporting anything on my nails probably because I'm really not in any particular mood to do something so festive and jolly on my nails and so...they're empty. But I have pictures lined up for you! So this is another glitter gradient I experimented with sponging. I used @emmajeancosmetics's "Blueberry Tart" for the base, "Mojitea" for the metallic blue and then a layer of "It's A Fairytale" (a glitter topper) on top. Do visit @emmajeancosmetics's for more stock information on the polishes used! 3mon

followthatway 28 RE-CREATION for Nail Art Jan! I did something similar to this a year ago when I first did a sponged silver tip French. this is the champagne version I used @emmajeancosmetics's "He Loves Me" for the beautiful champagne gradient tip (such wonderful formula to work with!) then topped it with a little bit of @opi_products's "Pirouette My Whistle", and the base color is "Glints Of Glinda"! I'm so sorry for my lack of posts! I've been busy reading for school and conducting nail services that my time is totally burnt away! I'll be doing more designs today so that they'll be up soon and just before vday! Thanks for sticking around! \\ please visit @emmajeancosmetics for more info on the polish I used! 3mon

followthatway I haven't been gradient-ing much nowadays and I'm feeling pretty much uninspired now HAHA anyway this is @nblacquer's "Queen of Love", a clear glitter topper with bar glitters and pinks and blue! I layered it over a gradient base of blue-purple-pink (using the face shop polishes) exceptional formula for this glitter topper! I only used one coat for this! Please visit @nblacquer for more information on stock details! 3mon

followthatway 25 MATCH OOTD for Nail Art Jan \\ inspired by my Uniqlo skort that I always wear because it's too comfortable the artist behind the print on the skort is too ingenious! I had a fairly hard time capturing the print but it looks somewhat like it! 😎 the base color is @nblacquer's "Black Hearts", a very smooth black-grey creme with pink flexes. For the floral prints I used basic colored nail polishes from The Face Shop and a very thin brush! Visit @nblacquer for more info on this polish stock 3mon

followthatway For the classic red lovers, this one will be a great option for CNY! ️ The sheer base is, as usual, @essiepolish's "Sugar Daddy". I used a total of 4 different @emmajeancosmetics polishes for this! For the classic red shade, I used "Mother's Garden", then topped it with a red glitter "Strawberry Shortcake", underlined the French with a thin layer of "Sweet as a Georgia Peach" and "Sweet Tea" (also glitter gradient-ed my accent nail with this)! Exceptional formula for all the polishes I used! They are scented and 5-free too! Please visit @emmajeancosmetics for more stock details on the polishes! 3mon

followthatway My final @prettypotspolish's picture! This is a jelly gradient of "Gatsby Party" mattified! I love this combo! It's not too black to tip over the edge of being all gothic/punk/emo (😎) and it contains just the right amount and colours of glitter! thank you so much Jalene for these lovely polishes! It has been such a pleasure experimenting with them! This polish is part of the "Cinematic" collection! For more information, please visit @prettypotspolish's page! 3mon

followthatway My first ever video tutorial!!! haha anyway this is a very abridged version on how I do glitter gradient nails, and since it's my first time, do pardon me! I used @emmajeancosmetics's "Blueberry Tart" as the light blue base, and "It's A Fairytale" as the glitter topper! ️ A nifty trick is to wipe down the handle of the brush into the bottle so that there won't be sudden excess buildup of glitter on the brush tip also, think of it as rain/snow falling! You want the glitter component to be most dense at the top (depending on whether you're doing reverse or normal glitter gradient) and then gradually feather it out by tilting your brush sideways. Lastly, don't forget to check your nail by rotating it side ways to see if the glitter polish you applied is too chunky or uneven. Then, apply top coat (not captured in video) and you're good to go! ️ I hope you guys found this helpful! I'll be glad to answer your questions if you have any! \\ opening music is Cassadee Pope's "Secondhand Love" // to purchase the polishes used, please visit @emmajeancosmetics for 5-free scented nail polishes 3mon
