"Haunted House"

This was my entry to the halloween nail art contest at Nailnation Fun Polish and Talk.
I wanted to post this here so that you will know how to make it. 
It is just easy to do.
So here goes...

This are the materials that I used...
Top coat by "Klik"
Mango by "Caress"
Sapphire by "My Polish"
Fairy dust by "Posh nails"
Black Stripper by "LM Taiwan"
and Yellow 2 way Nail Pen

I painted base coat by "Caronia" on my nails the most important part...
Trivia: You must put base coat first before doing any painting or designing on your nails to protect them... coloreless nail polishes are alot less toxic than colored nail polishes because they are colorless... The brighter the or the darker the color of your nail polish the higher the toxin... So to prevent your nails from toxin and to make it stronger use base coat...

Then I painted my nails in sapphire. I put 2 coats of it on my nails.

Put it evenly for nice results.

Then I painted the mango on half of my nails making it as a tip. Then I dabbed on it to make it look faded.


And added the fairy dust on my entire nails.

 Using my black stripper I added an uneven black tip, it must look spiky so that it will look like shadows.

Then I added all the details of my haunted house design.. Starting with the leaning tree on my thumb and point finger. Next was the shadow of a building and the bat on my pinky, then the full moon and more buildings on my ring finger and lastly my house.. I first outlined the frame and detailed it and added the yellow on the middle to make it look like it was lighted inside.

So there you are its simple right? I encourage you to try it. You can use any polish you like and you can also adjust them to your liking... Enjoy!!!

"Dotted Rainbow"

Dotts.... The first idea that came to my mind when I started my very first nail art design.

Dotts... I think it was the easiest design but when I stated it, it gave me a hard time thinking of how to make them cute...

Then I saw a rainbow and I used it as  an inspiration...
(Sorry about the pictures if they are blurred they are my first, and I was using my phone then)
I used my favorite colors here and I don't have any dotting tools yet so I just used some toothpick... I cut the pointed end for the big dots and used the pointed ones for the small dots.

Then I had my very first design... 
This is where I stated my designs... from this design i got inspired learning more...

*more to come*

"Palawan" My Adopted Hometown

It has been 15 years since I came to this beautiful place and haven't left it since...
I first came here when I was 12 years old and having been raised in the city I hated the provincial way of living here. Everything from fashion to movies were late in coming here. I missed the noise, traffic and pollution that was used to in Manila. So I swore to myself never in my entire life will I return to this place. 

Then after 5 years I found myself on board a ship going here and taking a summer vacation. Then suddenly my father surprised me of the news that I will continue my studies here in this place that I hated when I was a kid. I felt like all my dreams shuttered. then I went to college and met the man that I never realized that I will marry someday. I never Imagined that I will get married here and stay here for the rest of my life. Here in this place where I hated the most because of its provincial lifestyle. Here where I will raise my kids and probably where I will die.

Here in "Palawan" where my dreams shattered is where I built new ones. This is where I started to hope again. 

Here where you can find the famous Underground River (Subterranian River)

Where you can find beautiful beaches that can match famous and beautiful beaches around the world. Here we don't experience earthquakes, typhoons, pollution and anywhere you go you will see trees and flowers everywhere. 

I'll tell you a secret... yes I've lived here for 15 years, but I will never exchange that 15 years with the 17 years that I've stayed in Manila . I've finally realized that I love living here in Palawan. That yes my dreams shattered but I found my true happiness here in Palawan and here is where I'll stay.


Please watch out for my nail art designs which I will be posting here...
