The Cool and Awesome Nail Art!

I’ve been bored during the holidays so meanwhile, to kill time, I decided to do some manicure using scotch tape!

It’s so simple and so cool! 

Of course, excluding the time spent on doing it, the end results is just WOW!

This is my right hand! Look at the heart shape on my thumb! SO CUTE!

Well, it’s pretty easy to learn how to do it, all you need is lots of plenty time and scotch tape or any sticky tape that you have and scissors! 

Just paint the base layer first, for me I painted my base glittery black! After which when the base coat is dried, just stick the scotch tape on your nail and paint the non-covered part with another colour of your choice! For me I had it painted blue!

When your nail is just dried, just remember to seal it off with a top coat! VOILA you’ve got beautiful nails like mine! Hehe 😀

Crafting In Progress!

It’s been quite a while since I did some arts & crafts which was my favourite hobby since young. So on this random day of my holidays, I have decided to do and learn to do some simple crafts as a birthday gift for my bff (best-friend-forever) since I owe her 18th birthday gift due to her A’Levels.

And, I’ve actually bought a simple brown wooden photo frame and some craft materials like ribbons, glitters and glue.

So, check out what I

ImageUsing the box of ribbons I’ve got, I tried to learn from a youtube video about making ribbon rose! It’s my first attempt, I can’t say that it’s perfect but, I guess it does look a little like rose, don’t it?

Image

And taddaaa!!!

Here’s the wooden frame that I bought! It’s quite amazing that it looks so girly and all “bling-ed” up!

So, I had actually use 2 colours of glitter, silver and ocean blue to create that ombre effect since it’s really popular nowadays. Also, I used the pearls and beads that I had when I bought for my jewellery making hobby as some of the decorative for the frame! Of course, I did the round polka dot sequins myself by using a ribbons and sewing it before glueing on a clay flower on top of it!

It looks really pretty under the light because it’s so glittery and bling like a diamond!

It really SPARKLES!!! ❤

However, I kind of feel that the frame was a little too amateur and childish and kiddy, till the next day, I’ve decided to give the frame a little re-vamp.

Here it is!

The final look!

I’ve actually plucked off those sequins and replace the empty spaces with seashells that were picked from Tanah Lot in Bali when I was on an exchange programme with my bff.

I guess it’s kind of good memories, and I was hoping that this frame would evoke memories of my bff and I when we were in Bali and thus, I turned this frame into a more ocean-inspired look with the blue ombre effect from the glitters which reveals the sea and seabed under the sun and all those pretty shells and beads that are on the glitters.

Don’t you love them?

I had to glue the sides with ribbon because the wooden frame which were painted brown when I bought them off the shelf, the brown paint actually came off when my UHU glue was on it. And worst off, the brown paint actually seep through some parts of the ribbon!!! GOSH~

Here’s how the frame actually look!

It’s a photo frame cum birthday card! 2-in-1! Isn’t it cooL?

I had insert a pink card as the “photo” with my well-wishes written on it. Of course, for privacy purposes, I had to blur those messages and I paste a really cute goofy sticker on it! CAUSE I LOVE CUTE THINGS! 😛

Image

Being really lazy to wrap up the photo frame, I attempted to do something really simple, starting off with making a nice blue bow. A really small one!

Image

You could see that I didn’t fully tear off the label of the box properly…

Still, I tried to adorn this birthday present with strips of wrapping paper and finishing it off with a petite blue bow! 

I guess it does looks good…

And, I attempted to go another rose using a different method!

So which rose do you think looks better?

The one on the top of my post or this one?
