Lacy Nails

So bored last night so I decided to use one of my favourite nail polish colour and add a lace design on top. I used the Sally Hansen nail art pen in white to draw the patterns. It looks like a felt tip pen. It is really good because when you make a mistake you can wipe it off and start again. After you are satisfied with your design all you have to do is seal it with a clear top coat. The base colour is China Glaze in the colour 'ForAudrey' which is like the Tiffany and Co. blue. 

To achieve this look I applied a base coat, then 2 coats of colour. 

For the lace look just draw two parallel line about half a centimetre from each other. Fill it in with scallops and then draw scallops on the outside edges of the line and colour the edges in. Seal with a clear top coat.

Make sure you have allowed adequate drying time between each coat of polish. Also make sure the colour coat has been dried for a while so it's easier to draw in the design. 

What do you guys think of this design?

A while ago I asked my friend from Japan to send me some Rohto Lycee eye drops because they are sold for inflated prices online :(

Here is what she sent me (thank you so much M)

Above: ViVi magazines, Rohto Lycee eye drops, starbucks tumbler <3, Japanese cosmetics

Below: (Clockwise) Shiseido "Perfect Whip" cleansing oil and cleansing foam - I haven't opened these yet as I haven't used up my current cleanser or cleansing oil, Candy Doll Lip gloss - this has a spatula applicator and can be used by itself or on top of lip concealer for a more nudy pink finish, Ettusais Lip essence - I think it's a moisturising lip gloss but I haven't opened it yet, CANMAKE "Four Shiny Eyes"  eyeshadow pallet in 09, CANMAKE "Cheek Gradation" blusher in 05, BI-TA-BU Volume Mascara (gold mascara tube), CANMAKE Gokunobi mascara - apparently this is meant to be a lengthening mascara and goes well with false lashes, Kiss Me Length and Curl Mascara - this was awarded Japans no.1 mascara and is quite inexpensive over there, Kiss Me Mascara Remover (light pink tube)

I will do a proper review on the products I haven't opened. I'm really tempted to open them but I already have 4 mascaras that are opened and 4 lip glosses opened. Make up should not be kept for a long time as bacteria can grow on the applicator…

Do you guys own any of these products?

Nude Nails

Today I had a one hour lecture =( had to travel for an hour to uni and then go back home. But afterwards instead of going home I decided to stop by my favourite nail supply store. They sell OPI for half the RRP there =)

I found the best nude nail polish there. It has a glossy opaque finish and suits my skin tone well.

Here I've applied a base coat to protect the nail bed and two coats of the colour

I've tried another one by sportsgirl but it had a pearly pink finish and didn't suit my skin

What do you guys think? Have you tried any of these?
