I used China Glaze’s shocking pink neon as a base and stamped it with bundle monster’s candies plate with liquid leather from Bundle Monster. For the accent nail I used Layla’s Caviar Effect Nail art from shoppe eclecticco she is having a 20% off store wide birthday sale! Quickly grab a bottle before it goes out of stock!
I heard about the use of the word caviar is trademarked so I will call this my candy mani. Looks a lot more like candy than caviar me thinks. What do you say?
Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you!

80s groove

Standard

Hi lovelies! Today I have a really interesting polish to show you. I used China Glaze’s Light As Air as a based and topped it with Candeo’s Zef.
Zef has matt chunky neon pink, cobalt blue squares and tiny flakes made out of black, pink and cobalt blue suspended in a clear base.

Surprisingly, the effect of this looks like splatters of paint, very 21 jump street graffiti style of the 80s. Application of this was pretty easy but need to work fast as it dries really fast.
What do you think of this? Groovy? ๐Ÿ™‚
Candeo is available from Llarowe.

What a problem child this is!!! Absolute nightmare. It was gloopy, really thick and generally hard to work with. The color is a lovely shimmering teal with holo hex suspended in a teal jelly base.

I did this freehand half moon and stuck some shimmer tiny sequins and a crystal in the middle for each finger. Very bling and princess-y.

Love how the effect came out. Shame about the formula though. What do you think?

Grasshopper concert nails

Standard

Hi there! TGIF!
Today I have for you M&Ms nails in glitter. A different color for each finger and with bling. I was simply so excited to get my order of the new collection of ATG that I can’t wait to try them out! I totally forgot that I had a grasshopper concert to go to today. And how can I not do a set of totally OTT nails match their OTT show? Heheh. For those who are not familiar with Asian pop, the grasshoppers are possibly the first techno/disco boy band in the late 80s early 90s. I remembered their very first appearance in Singapore when I was attending secondary school. I am a giant fan of Anita Mui (their mentor) and naturally I got to check them out as they were her back up dancers then. It’s amazing that till this day, their energy on stage is exactly the same! Really high and great dancing and singing skills. Love it.
Anyway this is the MV that inspired me to do this manicure.
Grasshopper’s high energy concert

So I figured bling is definitely in order for this occasion! Hehe
