Born Pretty Stamping Plates and Nail Art

I got package with Born Pretty  image plates the other day and I really like all the designs. But I can already say that quite a few of the images are kind of small in comparison to other stamping plate brands. I will make stamping nail art with each plate and see how they really works. 

Have you got your BPS plates? How do you like them? Which one is your favourite?
I already have played with one image plate. I did pastel gradient background with butterfly print on top. 

HOW TO DIY THIS NAIL DESIGN:
1. Apply base coat to protect natural nails and provide smooth surface for following nail polish application. As always~
2. Apply basic white polish as main background to make pastel colors pop.
3. Randomly sponge pink, yellow, lilac and blue pastel polishes on top of each nail.
4. Apply a top coat (regular or shimmer it is up to you).
5. Stamp butterfly pattern from Born Pretty i.p. 07.
6. Apply colorful graffiti polish to the pinky and index finger.
7. Add a few neon studs to the cuticle line to create some color accent.
8. Seal everything with a good layer of top coat.
Hope you like this design and give it a try :)
Which plate should I use next?
Born Pretty image plate in #07 I used for this nail art. Click HERE to see more info about this product. Very detailed designs I should say and all of them graved very nicely! And it is slightly different then it showed on the web-store. Mine has 2 additional snowflakes on the sides. But so far I truely like this plate, it has beautiful designs also great for DIY stamping decals.

Cath Kidston Inspired Nail Art + Gift

Ever since I started writing in my diary/journal I always interested in all sorts of stationery things especialy washi tapes and paper. It was during that time I saw Cath Kidston designs and I immediately fell in love with all those flower patterns and soft colors. So, this week I decided to create something Cath Kidston inspired on my nails. 2D floral nail art using Oumaxi acrylic paints.
HOW TO GET THIS NAIL ART DONE:
1. Apply base coat to protect natural nails and provide smooth surface for nail polish application.
2. Apply pastel blue polish as main background color. I personaly looked for the polish with no glitters and any shimmer to it.
3. With nail art brush draw 6 red circles for the flowers. 
4. With thin detailed brush draw tiny white elements representing floral petals.
5. Draw small light green leaves. 
6. Randomly add light pink dots.
7. Seal everything with clear top coat to protect the design.
***To get all acrylic colors pop on top of blue polish mix each color with white paint***
Earlier this week I got perfume gift from a friend who recently had trip to Japan. It is CN №5 Pen Style Perfume. I really do like the concept of this perfume but the scent by itself isn't for me. It reminds me of an old lady style or some sort of soap smell I guess. But I am thankful for this souvenir anyways!
 Here is how it looks in open view.
Thats it for this week beauty update :) Hope you like it and thank you very much for taking time and stopping by~

Midnight Flower Nail Art

HeLLo everyone! Hope you all have a great weekend! Today I want to share the only nail art for this week which I just did. Instead of cleaning and washing I usually do every Sunday morning I sat down and changed my mani. 

HOW TO GET THIS NAIL ART DONE:
1. Apply base coat to protect natural nails and provide smooth surface for nail polish application.
2. Apply basic black polish to all of the nails and only on the half of the nail on middle and ring fingers. Just to create a simple accent.
3. Apply matte top coat for easier acrylic application.
4. To make acrylic colors pop on black polish mix them with white color. So did I, I mixed orange paint with white acrylic as well as yellow with white. 
5. With small flat nail art brush I made one-stroke technique to get those half-flowers done.
6. Added small gold hexgons in the center of each flower.
7. Randomly applied gold glitter polish.
8. Apply top coat to protect the design.
Thats it for this weekly beauty update. Hope you like this nail art and give it a try. 
Thank you very much for taking time and stopping by~

HaLLoween Mani + The Face Shop Haul

HeLLo everyone! Because it is October (Halloween Month) and also Walking Dead Season 5 starts (we will see the very first episode of this season at Monday night) I constantly see scary themed nails here and there. So I decided to make this SCARY PUMPKINS nails too :) We don't celebrate such holiday here in Korea but I still like doing Halloween nail art anyways~
Also during last week I was wearing this Skin Food polish in Dipssi Party  from their Party Tox Nail collection. I have 2 coats on. It has slightly sheer texture with a bunch of diffrent glitters to it. I love this aqua color so much, it is perfect in my eyes :) 
And I finally went out to The Face Shop store to re-stock some products I run out of. First of all I needed nail polish remover and make-up cleansing tissues. I also bought Lip & Eye waterproof make-up remover which is awesome especialy in comparison quality - price, Lovely Me:ex You & Face Blusher in Gold Glow and facial masks in Lemon and Blueberry. Cotton pads and bar soap set I got for free.
Thats it for the last week beauty update :) Hope you have a polished day! Thank you very much for taking time and stopping by~ 
'till next Sunday :)
