For the abstract colour blend design, I used Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #25 (blue), #10 (green), #146 (ochre yellow) and #23 (hot pink), then added … Continue reading »
This was a unique customisation request – the customer showed me pictures of a kind of cat… Super fierce-looking actually, but it was certainly interesting! It was wearing a helmet and had one odd eye… So she asked for it to be drawn on her thumbs and we went for simple striped French tips to … Continue reading »

I love this lace design! It’s relatively quick and easy compared to the usual lattice lace designs I do, yet it looks fresh and pretty! This is based on some designs I saw in my Japanese nail magazines, albeit with a modified colour scheme. Interestingly, part of it also involves the use of a flat … Continue reading »
This is a toned down version of a crazy design Jiamin picked out from an issue of Nail Venus… I converted some of the embossed art into flat freehand art and also modified the colour scheme to make it LESS outrageous (the original had a few more loud colours in addition to these colours). I … Continue reading »

At each stage of the learning … Continue reading »

She asked for a variety of heart designs that she got from elsewhere (a nail salon in Hong Kong called Nail Me… I think) and this was the result. Colours used: Gelish Desert Sands, Angel Pro Gelly … Continue reading »
I’ve loved the stocking effect ever since I saw it in the March issue of Nail Up! Magazine – basically it involves using a very sheer, translucent black and then layering art over it, such as adding polka dots or lace designs, so that it looks like patterned stockings. So gorgeous! I used Gelish Tassles … Continue reading »
Mei Jun showed me this design and we did it in red since it was CNY! Speaking of CNY, this was the very last set I did in the CNY period and yes, all the designs I’ve been posting were all done during CNY! I only take pictures of new designs to blog about (so … Continue reading »
I really love how delicate this set looks! Bee Fang showed me a picture from Girls Pic and the original colour (if I remember correctly) was white, but that was too bridal, so I suggested a pale blue instead. Well, it still looks pretty bridal, but it’s so soft and pretty! I used Gelish Desert … Continue reading »

Simple but bling bridal pedi! This was done with Gelish Desert Sands as the base, then Gelish Water Field for the tips before adding tons of embellishments and lace stickers!
Miyake opted for a matching mani (her pedi was also done in red and nude with leopard prints) but went for a gorgeous darker red this time! The red is Angel Pro Gelly Polish in #1, and the leopard prints were done with #32 (mustard) and #141 (dark brown). For the glitter accent nail, I … Continue reading »
