Nails x 3.5 + Blog Award s2!

Just sharing with you all some painted nails I've done for the couple of weeks. You can see how much my nails have grown during these past weeks because I like wearing the same coloured nails for a long time rather than always changing it up because I don't like removing the polishes with acetone. Such a big dilemma, I want to do different nail designs but I don't want to use nail polish remover them -_- how does that work? Do any of you know any other type of nail polish remover that are less harmful or even something natural?

Anyways let me start with one of my favourite!, A nude colour by REVLON called Gray Suede

Revlon-Gray Suede (3 coats)

Added some dots to one of the corners of my nails to change up the look in just a few minutes =]

China Glaze - Sexy in the City

This was done by one of my gf because we were bored, that's why I have no idea what colours/brands she used. I loved it when she helped me file my nails to get a better squared tip than my nails in the first picture above.

So my nails have grown a lot and every time I have long nails I would do a French manicure. Usually with the typical white or pearly colour but this time I've decided to do something different =]. I simply painted these on free handed (I didn't use tape or other helping equipments but feel free too if you want a more even and clean design)

Love this colour. China Glaze Agent Lavender. Applied one coat only!

One coat looks nice in real life but if you look at my nails under the light you can see that the polish isn't 100% opaque but I'm ok with that because under normal lighting it looks opaque and smooth =]

The colour should look a little bit more purple than baby blue, it's just that my camera won't pick up the true colour..sry!

As you can see, I'm a very simple girl. All the designs I made are simple, easy and quick to do. You can really see the deference between the designs my friend made and what I made =P. Let me know if you'd like to see more simple nail designs and which nail above did u like most? =P

7 Things About Myself (This one is so hard as I've already made a few posts in the past talking about myself lol, but anyway, here we goo......)

Congrats on the award! And I love all your nail designs - they're all so pretty. The Revlon polish is such a pretty nude. I really like the V shaped tips as well; it's very hard for me to grow out my nails long enough for that though :(

Haze said...

You do look a bit Filipina :)I am definitely darker than you, even more so now after spending the weekend in the sun. LOL@ your sun tan lines! Enjoy them, you will miss them when it gets cold.

I didn't end up going to the parade this year. I did go last year and it was a lot of fun especially since I went with some gay friends. Post some pics up if you went :)

Jeanie said...

Joey said...

Such pretty nails! I think simple ones are the best. It's so wearable for everyday wear. Although I do admire people who can do really elaborate patterns.

Congratz on the award!
I find it interesting how you eat lemon with salt! Dyou mean like how we would eat an orange, but instead you slice a lemon up an dip it in salt? Isn't it sour??

Pop Champagne said...

thanks for the blog award! I did the 7 things a while ago but I'll see if I can think of 7 more new things!!

btw so cool that you and your gf does each others nails, I just suck at nails in general so always looking for help when it comes to it haha

Congrats on the award Alx! ;D The added blue dots are simple but look soooooo good. But dang, you have some talent with precision with the lavender nails. I'd probably opt for the tape. (: Pretty lilac color!!!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you've done
a great job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.

Exceptional Blog!
