Neon Yellow Green Minimal Line Nail Art | NOTD

It’s time for…. a NOTD post! Fall is almost here in 20 something days and, of course, we need a neon coloured nail art to complete the season before welcoming the warm brown, orange season! When it comes to neon colours, I really like to use black as an accent colour. The black brings out the brightness of the colour and it also makes a really nice defined contrast between both shades.

NOTD Sephora VIB Gold Paint | Youtube Tutorial

It’s time for a new video! This is the blog’s very first nail tutorial! We hope you enjoy the tutorial, if you did, please give a thumbs up. It will mean a lot to us! So what triggered us to make this tutorial? Back in September 2015, Marika and I went to the Sephora’s VIB sale event. When you make a purchase, they give you a reusable tote bag with their black and white stripe with gold paint dripping from the top.

June Birthstone Beauty: Pearl | #NOTD

Oh hell yas! Finally June but also it means half a year has gone by and summer is passing in 2 months. – Well at least in Canada! But it’s ok, most important part is we just have to enjoy every single day of it with a good cocktail in our hands! June has 3 stones, pearl, moonstone and Alexandrite. Boy, that Alexandrite though.. prett-eh! Not quite sure why it has 3 for the month, probably because it’s a month in the middle of the year or because pearl is not really considered as a gem? Anyways, I like all 3 of them! For this month’s NOTD, I got inspired by the pearl. When I think of pearl, I just sense this very feminine, girly, sophisticated, soft vibe from this. So this nail art features a girly matte baby ombre pink quilted leather pattern and with black 3D bow and rose gold sparkle as accent nail. This is my very first time trying quilted leather matte nail, so it’s not as perfect and symmetric, but …

Emerald nail art for May Birthstone Beauty

May Birthstone Beauty: Emerald | #NOTD

When I think of May’s birthstone colour, emerald, the first thing that comes to my mind is a magical forest. With lots of fairy lights, magical animals and mysterious spirits. The magical forest also leads to a painting. I got no idea why, but I just associated to it. Maybe because a painting is one of the ways to bring our imagination to life. Ah, you see, magical forest > imagination > painting? Yes, I know you get what I mean 😉

March Birthstone Beauty | Aquamarine #NOTD

Hello guys! Wow it’s already March, time sure flies! So this month’s birthstone is the aquamarine. The turquoise colour is my favourite colour besides purple. This colour is just so pretty. When I look at it, it just absorbs my attention and it’s so meditating and soothing. Do you have a colour that makes you feel like that?? It’s as if the colour is trying to seduce you and make you fall in love with it. Alright.. going a bit sidetrack here but it’s just that I love the colour aquamarine/turquoise so much! How do you feel about your favourite colour? Anyways, back to this month’s NOTD! If you say the word aquamarine, it makes me think of a mermaid; a mermaid’s tale. Probably because when I was young I watched the movie Aquamarine. A beautiful mermaid with a very pretty aqua-coloured tail! The movie was good 😉 So, yes, this NOTD! I got inspired by a mermaid’s tail. Shiny, simple, delicate and the beautiful sparkly sand of the shore!

#NOTD: Bikini Summer Nail Art

This nail art is inspired by this year’s Bikini Village swimsuit! As I walked by Bikini Village’s store at my local shopping centre, the bikini on the display caught my attention. The vibrant colour and the black stroke attracted me a lot and I thought it would be nice to recreate this look on the nails.

#NOTD: Gold & White Arrow Nail Art

I’ve been obsessed with the white and gold colour combination ever since I became a Blackjack (that’s how 2ne1 calls their fans) back in 2009. Their rapper, CL, is my idol and I picked up this colour combination from her. White and gold are one of the colour combination that is in trend this year. The white gives a sophisticated and clean look; the gold adds a high-class and attitude feel to it. That’s the equation: white + gold = classy badass (just like CL ) ! ❤
