Weekend Nails:Checkered Pastel

I can't believe that 2011 is over & done with!
Is it already 2012?

Anyway, i'll be posting my last weekend nail for this year. I have only a couple of nail art tutorials for the past couple of months & i apologize for that. I don't even have a Christmas nail art. So here is to hoping that i will be able to make up for not being able to do nail arts for you.

I saw this design on the Nail Up! magazine for the year 2012. I was drawn with how cheery & fun this design looks like so i thought that i would recreate it for you,ladies. I hope that with this colorful nail art, the new year will bring forth good luck to all of us!

You can tweak this design with your choice of color. I just think that pastel colors are so adorable!
It's also your choice if you are going to do a freehand drawing of ribbon or anything to add a charm, or maybe just use a decal. I just stamped a ribbon on it.

Things needed:

  • base/top coat
  • your choice of colors (acrylics or polishes)
  • brushes (detailing & liner brush)
  • glitter polish
  • nail stamps (or decals)
  • star glittered polish (optional)

Click the pic for a bigger image...

1. Apply your base coat & choose a white base color so that the colors will pop.
2. Make a checkered pattern using a light colored acrylic to serve as a guide. Make sure that they are equal because the lines at the sides would be your guide for the shape of your lunula.
3. Apply additional lines like so to make it equal.
4. When you fill in the squares, start with the lighter color, in this case i started with yellow....
5. Then pink... You can play with the color application in the pattern if you want to. You can just add random colors too!
6. Green for additional coolness & playfulness!
7. Blue to bring in a strong & bold color.. but it should still be a pastel blue.
8. With your choice of color (pink in my case), carefully draw a curve to make the ends meet to finish the lunula.
9. Fill that space up with your color.
10. You can do an additional color application to make everything look neat before you start lining the edges.
11. Using a glitter polish, outline the lines to make the checkered pattern more flirty!
12. I applied 3 stars at the middle using the stars that i have on my glitter polish.
13. To finish it off, i stamped in a cute ribbon at the lunula to give it an extra cute factor!
14. Don't forget to top it off with a top coat!

Time to admire your cute nails!~

I love this design. I have received lots of compliment with this design!
I'm sure that you will too!
I would love to see your version of this nail art too!

Hope you all will have a good start for the year 2012.
I thank you all for the blog support that i received. I hope that you will continue supporting my blog for a long time.

Hope you all will have a prosperous new year!~
Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!

Week 7 giveaway winners~

How was your Christmas celebration,hunnies?
I hope that it was a very memorable one.

Sorry i was late in announcing the winners of our week 7 giveaway. I have had a very busy holiday preparations that i am hardly online at all!

Holiday is not yet really over since we still have new year's eve & also the new year celebration.

Let's get down to business....
Winner 1: Aida Villanueva
For me, fabulous looking nails can complete one's look, some women don't go shy in spending monies on manicures that will leave their nails looking enviable. Here are some tips to have a fab looking nails: 

1. Your nails are true reflection of what you eat. Eating fast foods will in no way make your nails healthy and strong.

2. Hand lotions help to moisturize the hands and strenghthen the nails, so be sure to use them after your hands have been in water.

3. Ensure that you do not use nails or blades to remove nail polish this will do a lot of damage to the nails.

4. You can put your nail polish in the freezer so as to keep the nail polish smooth and perfect for the next use.

5. An inexpensive and quick way to fix dry or brittle nails is to use petroleum jelly. Ensure that you carry a small jar everywhere, massaging it into your cuticles and nails as you deem fit.

6. While filing nails, begin with the sides and brush towards the center, using light stroked in the samae direction. Please try as much as possible to avoid filing nails back and forth, it weakens or break the nails.

7. To get glossy and gleaming shine, rub olive oil over nails.

8. Ensure while cleaning the nails, you remove all traces of nail polish.

That's it! You will have a fab looking nail especially this Christmas.

Thanks for all the wonderful tips,hun.
I hope that it will help you all.

When you file & buff your nails (especially buffing!) do it in one directions, don't go back & forth because that it is one of the cause why nails become brittle. I have had lots of girls ask me why their nails break easily & when i ask them if they buff their nails, they will say yes. Try to buff your nails only when necessary. Buffing could weaken your nails especially if you do it back & forth,ok?

Moisturizing your cuticles/nail bed will prevent hang nails so make sure you moisturize it by using oil. I like using cuticle oils but feel free to use your preferred oil. Almond oil is good, so is olive & vitamin e!

Though i just have to say that there is one tip here that i personally don't advise... that is in putting your polish on the fridge :(

I'll make a separate post on this 'tip' one time but i really will not suggest anyone to store their polish on the fridge. Just keep it in a cool, dry place, making sure that you turn the bottle on different sides every once in a while.

Winner 2: Donna Jane Ramos Marcuap

‎I know I don't need to make my comment long , just simple :)

S-assy NAILS ! 

1) You don't have to be an expert to give your nails that eye catching definition that makes a difference, all you need is a little bit of skill, time and practice, and soon you'll definitely be able to achieve a salon-style manicure that will receive admiration from all of your friends .
2) Nail polish has become a must have of the season, but if your nail polish gets chipped, your manicure will look disastrous. Carry your nail polish with you and repair any nail polish chips in time so that you always have lovely and flawless looking nails.

~to get rid of #2 better have hbc nail polish products! :D

Thanks for that fab answer,sweetie!
I have to say that i was drawn to your creativeness so i am doubly glad that when i clicked randomizer you were picked!

Congrats to the winners!
Please wait for the email on how to claim your prizes.

Thanks for joining!

Christmas haul~

Can you believe that it's only a couple more hours before Christmas?!
Time flies...  really flies!

I just want to post my Christmas gifts that i got for myself.
Why did i buy gifts for myself?

It's because these would be the last items that i'll be getting for myself. I promised myself that unless i completed my Make-up Artist kit, i will not buy anything for myself that's why i went all out & gave in to the items that i have been dying to get.

So my "project mua kit" will start next year... actually, that's also saying that it will start now, except for the things that i really do need i won't be buying any personal make-up items for the time being. I would have to get all the Graftobian palettes if i want to have good quality cosmetics & they are not cheap. haha!

Anyway, on we go with my small haul. You all know that i try to only buy & use products that are budget-friendly but since this is going to be my last purchase for the meantime so i decided to splurge a little. hehe

A very handy yet captivating eyeshadow palette & my most coveted finishing powder!

I have always wanted to try the MAC cool liquid powder ever since it was first released in the Venomous Villain Collection but i wasn't able to buy it back then & i really really regret not getting it because i love anything that has cooling sensation!

I'm so glad that due to public demand MAC made it as a part of their permanent line! w00t w00t!
Sugoi!!! Awesome!!!

I had to ask a friend to buy this for me in Singapore because it's quite expensive here in the Philippines. Hey, it's the most expensive time of the year & i have to save up every centavo. haha!

She even gave me some MAC pamphlets!
I love that it has pro tips written on it.

I always love MAC's packaging.
It's so simple yet sleek!

Thanks so much, hun!
You made my christmas a really enjoyable one. I shrieked when i opened the package! Thanks for the glue remover too!

I have been searching high & low for this Daiso glue remover here & it's so dang difficult to find!
Love you, sweetie!
Thanks again!

Then the Sun Palette Horizon by YSL is THE palette that i have wanted ever since just because i love bright shadows (though i don't do eye make-up tut nowadays) & this palette just screams color!!!!!

Housed in a really cute brown velvet pouch with the sponge applicator nestled in the tiny pocket, it is just so luxurious!

Don't you think the colors are just dee-vine?!
My heart skipped a bit when i swatched it.

It looks so pretty i'm really so hesitant on swatching it for fear of destroying the pattern.. haha!
But my fingers are too big for this adorable palette, i ended up messing a stripe on the teal shadow. It's ok because if i didn't i might end up not using it.

I was lucky enough to order this palette at since this was a limited edition so when i saw that it was available i didn't hesitate clicking the buy now button because it screamed at me to take it home!

This has been sitting on my "kikay kit" ever since i got it & i L-O-V-E it!
I'm so happy that i was able to snag it!

I think i still have a couple of things that i haven't shared with you guys but that'll keep until the next posts... nothing major though. hehe. Wish me luck on the "personal make-up ban" that i have promised myself. I know that mostly when you make a promise that's when temptations really sets in,right?

I'll be very busy tomorrow because it's Christmas Eve already. I figure so you'll be,right?
I just hope that you'll have a very happy Christmas celebration!

Have a happy holidays, peeps!

Week 7:Nailicious! (CLOSED)

Week 7 already!
It's almost Christmas, hunnies!!!
What are your Christmas plans?

You all know that i love making nail arts so i'm quite excited for this week's giveaway. It's all about your nails!

Tips and toes transformed with colours. A week of pampered nails is coming your way.
Do you know that in ancient Egypt, women used nail colour to signify social order with shades of red at the top? Queen Nefertiti, the wife of King Akhenaton, coloured her fingernails and toenails ruby red;Cleopatra favored crimson. Women of lower rank who coloured their nails were permitted only pale colours. (Wikipedia)
Want a perfect mani-pedi experience? Here are 5 tips from HBC:
1.    Remove traces of old polish with a nail polish remover.
2. Soak nails in warm, soapy water then add a few drops of essential oil like lavender or peppermint.
3.    Clip tips straight across and gently push cuticles back (resist the urge to trim them). Use a sharp nipper to cut hang nails, and lightly lift away dirt under the nail bed using an orange stick.
4.    File nails to leave edges smooth after clipping. Apply lotion and spray nail surfaces with rubbing alcohol to disinfect and prep them for polish. Wipe dry.
5.    Apply your choice of lacquer starting from the base of the nail brushing outwards. Use a cotton swab or a cotton-covered stick dipped in nail polish remover to remove excess polish on the sides. Finish with a coat of clear polish.
Women of today are so lucky to experiment with whatever nail colour they want, so give your nails the love they deserve with subtle to vibrant hues enriched with Vitamins C and E like San San nail polishes. Take 5 of these for yourself when you answer this week’s question:
What’s your secret to fab-looking nails? Happy Beautiful Christmas!
Same rules apply: (numbers 5-8 are just for additional entry but it's not required)
  1. Just answer the question that is posted. (required)
  2. Follow my blog. (required)
  3. You have to LIKE HBC's facebook page . Make a post about this giveaway on your facebook. Make sure you tag HBC & On Beauty Stuff & What Else's so that we can see it. (required)

Week 6 giveaway winners~

Here are the week 6 winners.

Winner 1: Riza J. Llarena

I feel flawless whenever I Exfoliate my skin because it removes the dead skin cells that can make my skin appear dull and without glow. I use a scrub designed for exfoliation, once or twice a week then after exfoliating I apply moisturizer.Another thing is I’m not going to sleep with my makeup on. Lastly,I feel most flawless when I drink plenty of water.I try to drink at least eight glasses of fluids every day because water hydrates my skin and keeps it free of toxin and improves the elasticity of my skin, making it glow and flawless. I also avoid stress because it will not help me achieve a flawless skin. It can only make my skin appear dull.Getting enough sleep is next to water, probably the best thing I can do for my skin!

I love this tip.
Exfoliation is something that most people don't think is essential but it is. It could brighten up your skin instantly & the skin really feel different after the process.
Too much exfoliation is bad though so don't over exfoliate,ok?

I myself drink lots of water. I try to drink at least 12 glasses of water not just eight.

Winner 2:  Thea Plete

I feel flawless after I finish my facial routine at night. You know that I love your blog coz we have the same skin problems. I dislike the heat from the sun. It makes my pores go overdrive in producing oil. At night, it feels cool and I feel flawless after I clean my face. 

Congrats, sweetie!
It's hard to have oily skin,ne?
Thanks for the blog support!

Just wait for the email from HBC on how to claim your prizes.

Have a great week!

Just to let you know that i have added some things on my blogsale.

Happy shopping!
Jaa ne~!

Peel-off polish... yay or nay?

A question to my pinay readers...
are you aware that we have peel-off polish here in the philippines?
I'm sure 90% of you will say "really?"... haha!

I have actually checked Honeybee's website before because i guess as a nail art lover/polish lover the novelty of owning something unique is so great.

I'm glad i did not let my impulse take over me at that time because little did i know that it is available here!

Presenting the Allue Fairy Tale Collection!

According to HBC:
Allue is the first complete & dependable brand of affordable, high-quality products that are mildly formulated to suit the delicate neds of tweens ages 8-15, who are in the advent of many beautiful first experiences. Its products range from scents, make-up, skincare, hair & make-up accessories.
The packaging for the Allue line is so girly & cute! Perfect for tweens. I think this line is old already but people are just not aware of it.

Compare to regular polishes, the scent of this line is definitely different. It's not the 'bad' type of different,ok? It is actually a 'good' type of different. It smells nice. It's because it's not solvent-based.

It doesn't have Butyl & ethyl Acetate. It also doesn't contain the 3 toxic ingredients which are DBP (dibutyl pthalate, Formaldehyde & Toulene. That's why the main marketing point of peel-off polish is that it's safe because it doesn't contain any of those ingredients.

Since it smells nice i can even apply this on an air-conditioned room without worrying about the awful smell that regular polish leaves behind! I can't apply regular polish on my room just because i hate the smell. ugh!

It can be easily peeled off...

You can easily change the color of your polish without using polish remover!
What i like about this too is that it dries fast! I like fast dry formulas because i don't have the patience to wait for my nails to dry because i'm a busy lady. This one is definitely something for ladies-on-the-go.

Now, let's go to the swatch...
I like the shade names, it's so girly too!

First is the Portia Pastel which has this glitters with milky pink base on the bottle but dries clear on the nails.

I'm sorry for my swatch because i'm not able to capture the beauty of the glitters. The glitters emit an iridescent sheen that looks really pretty! I love this shade! Highly recommended!

Then next would be the Moira Magenta which is a very cute barbie pink. I don't think it's magenta though... is it? It's a nice pastel  pink with an iridescent sheen so it doesn't look flat.

How cute is that color?!
Me likey a lot!!! My second favorite!

Then Fiona Fuchsia. It looks fuchsia on the nails but not on the bottle. Maybe it looks more magenta-ish on the bottle. Anyway, magenta & fuchsia is basically almost the same,ne? The main difference is their undertone because magenta is purple while fuchsia is pink but in this case i would digress it by saying that it really looks fuchsia on the nails.

Same with Moira Magenta, it is also iridescent. I like this added iridescent on the shades because it makes them more interesting.

Then last is the Laura Lavender.
My least favorite of the bunch. I like the color, you'll even see the obvious iridescence on the bottle.
But why do i not like it? Simple...

It's streaky...
I don't like seeing those obvious streak marks from the brush as you apply. Though i have to say that it doesn't look as bad when it dries but somehow it miffed me. haha!

I think this line is really nice.
Not including the fact that it is just sold for Php 25 each (less than a dollar), it is definitely something for polish lovers to try.

Though i have a little problem with it.
I find it weird that it applies like a butter but it dries with an uneven finish if you apply it alone. It's like it is about to crack...

Applying a base coat will definitely help give it an even finish. I don't have a problem with Portia Pastel because as what i said, it dries clear so all will be left will be the glitters but i'm having that problem with Moira Magenta & Fiona Fuchsia. More so on Fiona Fuchsia. I can't seem to get it right.

I'm not sure if it's just me though.
So for those who have tried this line, can you tell me if you have the same problem that i encountered?

But that won't deter me from liking this collection.
Just because they are unique! They are a delight for a polish collector plus it's really cheap! It's only Php25 (less than a dollar) each!

I'll just make an update later on how it fares but im still saying that i am liking this collection!
So,what do you think?
Yay or Nay?

Hope y'all have a great Sunday!

Weekend Nails:Rose Patterned nails

Just a short post...

Here is the tutorial for the nail art that i had on my last post.

I have to say that it's not really that difficult to do. It will just require you a steady hand & the thinnest detailing brush that you can get your hands on.

I used acrylic as my medium in this nail art.
I used a dotting tool that has a fine tip & a sable detailing brush.

Click the pic for a larger image...

1. Add a uniformed dots as a background.
2. Do swirls to form as roses.
3. Using a C/V shape pattern, a darker shade of the same color of your swirl at the bottom to act as the sepal.
4. Add stems & leaves with your green color.
5. Put dots in the middle of the flower as the bud.
6. Finish it off with blings if you want to.

Just some notes to remember when i did this tutorial.
I just remembered to add dots on the middle of the roses right after i put on the rhinestones so you'll see how messy it looks already when i put the dots.

Also, i used white acrylic as my base color here since i just did 1 nail for the tutorial so you'll see that it cracked when i applied top coat because it was still a bit wet when i finished it. 

It's better to use polish on dots because it would give you a better looking dots. since the consistency of polish is thick, it will produce a dot, as opposed to acrylic. You'll see how haphazard my dots are. Anyway, it's not like the dots are the point of this look. It just a background pattern, but if you want it to look perfect, then use polish when making dots.

I think it's better to have the stems in just 1 direction unlike how i did it the first time. Having the stem in just 1 direction will give it a better look. I just don't like to do my nails over again, but just trust me in on this. hehe

I used faux pearls as an added bling. It's ok to not apply it if you don't have it.

There ya go!
Do tell me when you have tried this nail art,ok?
I would love to see how you did it too

Simbang gabi will start tomorrow!
How fast time flies! Can you believe that Christmas is already next week?

Hope you all are enjoying your day!

what have i been doing?

I haven't been that active in blogging lately & let me tell you that i am really feeling guilty. I am just so thankful that you have still been checking my blog even if i don't update regularly. I'll make it up to you by letting you know about things that have been going on with me for the past couple of weeks.

I don't even know where to start...?
Uhhhhmmm... i guess i'll start with the recent update.

I haven't really done a lot of nail art post lately because i have been so busy & my nails are like the last thing that on my mind. But luckily, last weekend i was able to do a nail art (finally!) & here is my current mani.

I'll make a tutorial on this design within this week. And no, this is not a decal, i did this freehand so i'm sure you can also do this. I'll take single tutorial pictures right after this post. hehe

Then some things/thoughts that i want to share....
I have bought this finishing powder & let me tell you that i love love love this finishing powder!

I'll make a separate post about this but i love how this photographs really really well!
I'm sure you know what side has make-up on,right?

I decided to just do half of my face because i want to really see the difference. Oh, i use San San's Matte Liquid foundation underneath & i am liking it too! It almost looks natural on me,right?

This is how it looks on broad daylight.
I know that the color of my face looks different with my neck because my neck is actually darker but since this is just a test, i didn't bother applying it on my neck. i also didn't apply any concealer & i'm glad that this combo was able to hide my small imperfections quite nicely.

In depth review after a couple more weeks.

Then i finally succumb to the call of the brush guard...

I have been really curious about this one but let me tell you that i don't think that it really a must for me. It just makes drying of brushes really long! I guess that this is better for storage but not really for drying. Anyway, that's just my opinion.

Then last week, i was really surprised when the mailman dropped by in the evening to make a delivery!
It came from my very revered "ate"!

I wasn't really expecting anything & i was really shocked when the mailman dropped a big box on my arms. I haven't really got any packages from Japan yet but now i know that it would be delivered straight to my house so another door has opened for me.

Napajapan, i'm gonna be your future customer! hahaha

Anyway, i was so surprised with everything that i got!

Everything is an eye candy!
*looks straight at Kamenashi Kazuya*
I can't believe that they are mine!
Oh, of course i shared it with my brothers but seeing everything is just so unbelievable!
I have been singing "Run for you" ever since i got this!

Since i am already talking about this, i'll go over the Nail Up! magazine.
I only have soft copies of japanese nail art magazines from nail up, nail max & nail venus so owning one is definitely exhilarating!

Here are a couple of sample shots...

Will you all just look at the details of this nail design?

She even included the top coat that i have been searching for ever since!

Arigatou, onee-sama!
It's not a mistake that i choose '-sama' as the honorific to call you because i really look up to you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Since we are already on the topic of nails, i'll just tell you all that i won 7th place on our group's nail art contest. Yay! So happy!!!!
(pictures taken from my facebook account)

I also attended our anniversary party where the awarding happened. It was a very memorable day!
I love my FUN group!

Did you know that you can do very detailed nail art design using a nail art fountain pen?

I tried it & it was so easy to use! I made the rose design at left part.

Another thing that was added on my things-i-wanna-own.
My list is endless!!!

Last thing that i wanna share, i have been looking for a good pair of flats that would fit my big feet & i'm really glad that i was able to find one that fits my feet snugly & comfortably.

Presenting my KIMI flats!

I bought mine at the Noel Bazaar for only Php 580 (i think?) for 2 pairs! How awesome is that?!

I'm just bummed out that Kimi is not available everywhere.

Do you know where Kimi is available?
I would love to own a few more pairs.

Well, i think this post is already too long. hahaha!
Just to let you know that i am still alive & i always read your comments.
Thanks for the blog support, sweeties!
Make sure you join my Week 6 giveaway,ok?

Hope you all are having a great day!

HBC Giveaway Week 6:If you got it,flaunt it! (CLOSED)

The holiday season is almost here... just a couple more days. I can already feel the excitement in the air!
Have you done your shopping?

To be able to achieve a perfect look, foundation is really the key. Even if i don't really use foundation that much i know how important it is & why it is a must to have foundation on your kit.

I just said that i don't really apply foundation every time i go out but it doesn't mean i don't keep foundations on my kit. It's really a must to achieve a good flawless finish. So even if you don't have the perfect skin, you would still be able to flaunt it as long as you got the perfect shade for you.

This week's giveaway will give you a chance to be able to try out their mousse foundations. I haven't tried their mousse ones yet, but let me tell you that i like their liquid foundations. I bought 2 shades last weekend & i am liking it so far!

I'll do a review after a couple more weeks. But if i like their liquid ones, then most likely this would also be a good foundation!

Flawless skin that’s soft to the touch. A week of timeless beauty unfolds.
Cindy Crawford once said, “foundation is the most individualized makeup you wear.” Aside from foundation being your face’s BFF, it also adds color to your skin and shields it from the drying sun, wind and air conditioning.
Determine your foundation shade in natural light by sampling a swatch along your jawline. If it blends in perfectly without any strange-looking streaks, you’ve found your match.
