    A complilation of my top fifteen favourites (and of course most popular)!!!!

    Okay, I spent some time looking at my nail work archives and picked fifteen (initially 10 but since i had too many, i had to raise it to 15) of my absolute favourites!! Some readers who are new to this blog might not have seen some of these works before (As i used to post on myspace.com) So here goes!!

    No.1
    I thought this set was very unique, I loved the ribbon and loved how had to figure out how to create it. The assorted flowers no less were really pretty and a pleasure to do.

    No.2
    If i had to name top ten most popular sets, this would definitely be the top of the list!!!
    I remember doing this set when I came back from Japan with a whole bunch of loot to play with. Of course eventually i created this! All the BLING!

    This was another really popular set, also another one of my favourites.
    The handpainted black lace chevron background with embossed roses and of course pretty shiny embellishments.

    This is a really pretty set, didn't put much embellishments but made the embossed flowers stand out on their own instead. I love the roses, mixed white and hot pink acrylic powder to achieve the shading on the flowers.

    HAHA. How can anyone who has seen this EVER forget this set?!

    Birthday cake for the birthday girl. Made the fruits, cake, chocolate from scratch. Believe it or not, she came back with the cake intact 3 weeks later.

    Ahhhh. The cushion roses. I can't remember how I came up with the idea of making cushions from acrylic powder. I must have seen something that inspired me.
    Roses were stuck on, purchased ready made. The rest of the flowers and ribbons, cushions were all handmade.

    This is a gorgeous, elegant set. Took a lot of time to do, but effort and time spent was well worth it.

    No.8
    This is a big favourite of mine!! I remember adjusting the colours on my airbrush to create the air-brushed rainbow tone on the background, creating the happy-faced sun, and the hibiscus flower up till today is one of my favourite flowers to do. I have created many variations of the hibiscus. :D

    Who can forget the reign of the dougnuts and cupcake and eclairs?!
    wahahaha.

    No. 10
    I just love this set to death. I always look at it and admire the roses, and the rose ribbon I created. I think I was a lot more creative in the past. Monotony has killed most of my brain cells.

    No.11
    The quintessential bridal set. French tips with floral blooms, crystal and pearl embellishments.

    Photobucket

    No. 12
    The crystal galore. Design was from the Nail Max X Pinky girls issue. I wore it for 2008 CNY. Rolled up acrylic roses, crystals, pearls, bullion beads, little satin ribbons. The design to date remains one of my most popular. And I have included the 'full' version on it below this 'french tip' version.

    Photobucket

    Full version.

    Now now, let Hello Kitty take over this crazy bling. Picked this favourite one of mine from the COUNTLESS sets of HK nails that i've done. This is a medley of designs i've done. The wall-paperish painted rose background, the frills, the 'pillow flowers' the giant heart. Very fitting for a HK design. Any Hello Kitty fan would be pleased.

    No.14
    The wall paper design. haha. Really popular set. Blue painted stripes and pink embossed roses.


    Photobucket

    Last but not least....

    No.15
    The vintage-y set i created with an assortment of pearls, crystals and ready made embellishments plus of course hand folded flowers.

    Two pics I have included, of the fingers and the thumbs.


    Photobucket

    The thumbs..

    Photobucket

    Oh I absolutely HAVE to include this one in a special spot. The 16th favourite. My head banner. The folded roses.
    I love it to bits, which obviously explains why I put it as my blog head.


    Photobucket

    I hope you have enjoyed this compilation of my top 15 (16) favourites, as much as I have enjoyed putting them together. Putting them together brought back many fond memories for me!

    Gotta run for appointment now!

    Peace out!

    Your friendly Nail Guru

    Bridal nails.

    If I don't remember wrongly, this design was picked from Nail Up complilation series. Beautiful bride with beautiful nails. :)

    Intricate rose bloom inlay.


    A pretty rose bloom inlay design. Rose blooms and leaves encapsulated with acrylic and gel top coat for added shine.

    Photobucket


    Photobucket

    This was my own design, with my custom-mix of pink glitter powder. Roses were quite difficult to do as to achieve this look, I had to 'volumise' the roses which in turn makes it difficult to prevent a thick acrylic nail.

    A really pretty look overall. Again, great for people who aren't used to the pop-up sort of nail art. Or those who can't have them for work.
    Easily covered up with a layer of polish.

    Bali!!!

    As promised, here are some pictures of my solo pilgrimage to bali, met up with friends, made new friends. Had a really good time.

    Kuta Beach

    That's me right there surfing yo.

    Photobucket

    On route to dreamland... with the boys following right behind me.

    Photobucket

    Trust me, totally regretted taking off my helmet. Was totally enjoying the sun and the breeze until we reached dreamland and I had to detangle my hair. Not fun I tell you.

    Photobucket

    Dreamland is a beautiful white sand beach that used to be a much longer stretch until commercialization came in to ruin it with a resort. Now its much smaller than it used to be, hawkers and peddlers on the beach no less, but still beautiful in my opinion nonetheless. :)

    Pro surfer waves. You can bet i wasn't involved with those waves. I TRIED to 'swim' or 'waddle' around in the water but all I got was knocked over by the strong current even though it was extremely shallow, and yes a full pouch of sand in my bikini. I was a walking sandbag.

    Assorted pics of trudging around Kuta and partying no less.

    I have an unbreakable bond with my muw here. We both survived a fire that broke out on my hostel toilet and we both could have perished in the toxic fumes. I didn't take any photos of the ruins as both of us were in complete shock. Imagine two girls sleeping soundly and waking up to find ourselves smothered by a thick blanket of smoke. She heroically put the fire out and here we are standing alive and well today.

    A toast to you muw!

    The yums.

    Toying around with my friend's cam. Will post photos I've taken with that camera IF i get it from her.

    The process of creating lovely inlay nails.

    I took the time to take some photos while in the process of creating inlay nails for my client. I did it since many people inquire about inlays and are never too sure what exactly they are. Basically it's acrylic extensions with encapsulated nail art within (be it glitter or emboss art). Essentially the art is done 'within' the nail instead of you being able to feel it on the surface of your nails. Great for people who aren't used to having stuff on top of their nails, or people who can't have too much art on their nails due to work (stewardesses etc). It's not easy since i had to do a step and stop to take a photo. Here goes anyway..

    Prepped nails for extensions..

    Photobucket

    The 'raw' form of acrylic extensions, in this case, inlays.

    Photobucket

    My work in it's raw unpolished form.

    Photobucket

    Done! Voila! Beautifully polished with a layer of gel topcoat. Extremely durable and you can paint a coat of polish over and remove as and when you like it.

    Was away in Bali.. Pics of that comin right up.
