Ok the crooked lines totally gutted me. I don’t know how did chalkboard nails get her lines so straight!!! Well, hope I do better next time.
This mani reminds me so much of a local straits Chinese cake called kueh lapis. Can you see the resemblance?

Teal Tuesday – Braid

Standard

Hi sweets! It’s Teal Tuesday! Ok I am really early this week 🙂
The theme for this week is braid nails. Not exactly my favorite type of nail art and this is my first attempt. Excuse the wonky lines.
I used a combination of A-England’s Avalon (a wonderful deep purple), Barielle’s Island Breeze and Sally Hansen’s Dazzling Diamond.20120807-011335.jpg20120807-011329.jpg20120807-011324.jpg20120807-011318.jpg20120807-011313.jpg20120807-011306.jpg
To me braid nails are really tough. You need to have a good one coater else it will become pretty thick and hard to control. To make things worse, I got mixed up with the order and messed up a couple of times :p
What do you all think? Love this teal from Barielle and A-england. Excellent formulas and application!
