Hello Kitty Nails

I got some Konad nail stamping stuffs awhile ago. Wanna do a Hello Kitty nail after seeing this video. Anyways, the nail plate was a pain to use. Have to practice before start applying onto your nail. The gurus made this nail stamping task so effortless. Oh well, here's my first try. Still room to improve to get all the images stamped to the nails.

  1. Base Coat: OPI
  2. Two coats of China Glaze Tempest
  3. Stamp Hello Kitty on to my nails using Konad Special Nail Polish. I got the GCOCL A02 plate somewhere on the internet. Painted the bows into red. I used the OPI Ohare & Nails Look Great! Wish I have yellow to paint her nose. :(
  4. Added a few nail stickers
  5. Top Coat: 2 coats of Seche Vite

Purple Nails

I was planning to paint a golden nail design but then I saw my purple nail polishes... so, I changed my mind. The above are the nail polishes I used to paint on my nails. After base coat (I use nailtiques nail protein), put a coat of light purple. Here I used Majolica Majorca VI 112.

 Then used OPI Do You Lilac It and painted mid way to the tip.
I then added China Glaze Spontaneous to the tip.

Because I wanted to diffuse the lines between each color, I used a sheer shimmery color from OPI called Dazzle Me.

Last thing to do was to put on a top coat, here I used Seche Vite Top Coat. Makes my nails last longer and shiny.

Light Pale Pinkish Nails

Occasionally some people would ask me where I got my nails done. It's all DIY coz I like to play with my nails. I used to just change the color, then gradually learned to draw some stuffs on it.

This nail looks simple yet elegant. I've used 5 nail polishes to complete the look.

  • Base Coat: OPI
  • 2nd coat all over the nail: Essie Mademoiselle
  • Paint half of the nail from the middle to the tip: OPI Princess Rule!
  • Another coat from the middle to the tip: Sinful Colors UFO
  • Add nail stickers
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite
