Bumble Bee Nails

0

Buzz buzz... how cute is this set of bumble bee nails?? I love doing these colorful animal nails!


For the base, I used a black and a bright yellow polish.



Once the base had completely dried, I put some tape on the 4th finger nail to do the stripes.


Then I painted the black polish over it and then removed the tape right away. There we have the stripes!



On the 3rd finger nail, I painted a half moon on the tip with the black polish. Then I used a dotting tool to paint on the eyes and antennae, and we are done!



Products used:
Black Striper - Color Club

0

This month's bag is a black studded vegan leather one and I really like this slightly edgy style! I will definitely put this in my purse as a makeup bag!

What I got this month:



Pixi by Petra - Beauty Blush Duo in Peach Honey - 4.5 g
I really like this product! Despite the name "blush", I think it is more like a highlighter. Both sides swatch so creamy and the color payoff is intense! The pink side is more metallic and the golden side is more natural. I am glad I got this!



Smashbox - Photo Finish Radiance Primer - 7.1 ml
Smashbox is known for their primers and this one does all the good stuff the original one does plus it adds glow!  I am excited to try this. It claims that it can also be worn on top of makeup as a highlighter but I don't think the effect is intense enough for that.



Luxie Beauty - Angled Shading Eye Brush - 207
I have a few of the Luxie brushes and they are pretty good. This one is no exceptions. It is soft and fluffy and feels good to the touch. I will sure use this to apply eye shadows!



E Nature - Birch Juice Hydro Sleeping Pack - 13 ml
I love using Korean sleeping packs as face cream at night as they are mostly very hydrating! This one contains Birch tree sap and I have never tried any skincare with that! It is supposed to be very hydrating and we shall see the results! I am excited to try this.

Hanalei - Papaya Enzyme Powder Cleanser - 5 x 1 g 
I don't usually use cleansing powder as they can be a hassle and a mess. This one uses all natural ingredients and the powder also acts like a gentle scrub for the face. It claims that it won't leave the face feeling tight afterwards and it is suitable for sensitive skin. Let's see how this perform.

I love painting fruits manicure because they are just too colorful and fun! Here's an easy kiwi nails to cheer you up!


For the base, you can use any shades of green.



Then I painted a half circle with a white polish on the tips of the nails.



After these layers have dried, I painted some black dots along the seams of the two polishes and faded them out with smaller dots towards the green end. That's all!

Orange Pond Dotticure

0

Here's an interesting looking jelly pond dotticure! It was done with multiple layers. The key for this manicure is to use a jelly (not opaque) nail polish. Let's start!


I first painted some white polka dots in different sizes as the first layer. Then I painted a jelly orange polish over it. 



I then repeated these steps sandwiching the white dots and the jelly polish. This will show the different depths of the polka dots. Cool right?


Polishes Used:
White - OPI
Orange - Julep
