Snake Nail Art featuring Faby Nail Laquer

Hey Everyone!

Happy Monday!

What I got for you today is a simple but fun nail art that I did for a collaboration with a group of fellow nail enthusiast in Instagram, here's my snake mani.

I actually did this nail art a few hours before the deadline, the process was quiet easy, I applied my base color, i used Faby Nail Lacquer, Never Disagree with Faby! for this mani, sponged some green chromes, then stamped some net like image over my base to give a snake skin like effect, the final touch is the snake charm on my accent nail, and voila! ;)

Oh and here's a swatch of Faby Nail Lacquer, Never Disagree with Faby! from the Faby Posh Collection, on my nails are two medium coats, love the formula! Not too thick nor too thin, and drying time is normal. Picture taken under natural light.
If this is the first time you heard/read about Faby, it's a new foreign brand that recently landed here in PH. What's awesome about Faby is that each lacquer is chip resistant, this mani lasted for 5 full days on my nails(except the charm) a lot of my mani chipped within the day or survived until the next day max! Another awesome fact about Faby Nail Lacquer is that it's BIG5 FREE meaning it dosn't have Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor, oh, last but not the least, Faby products are Cruelty Free and never tested on animals!

Faby offers over 175 gorgeous colors! I'll be featuring more here soon so stay tuned!
They also offer nail treatments and other essentials like Top coats(I really loved their basic top coat, see my recent insta post.) and Base coats.

Here's one last shot of my snake nail art!

And that's it for today!

The Great Stamping Fest

Hey Guys!

Happy Thursday! What I've for you today is a compilation of my recent stamping manis, I wanted to improve my stamping skills, so i tried doing different kinds of mani using different kinds of stamping technique.

I have 3 different stamped nail art to show you guys, so let's start!

First up is this basic stamping over a colorful gradient.
I used 5 different polishes for the gradient base, all are from Girl Stuff, the nude is called Sophia, the rest is the complete GirlStuff Rave Neon Collection.
The stamping plate that I used for this is BP-21 from Born Pretty Store.

Here's another shot.

2nd mani was created using the stamping decal technique. I used the complete Rave Collection from Chic Nail Color for this mani, may base color is called Backstage. What's great about the stamping decal technique is that you can alter the image to your liking, see what I did to my ring fingernail? I replaced one of the squares with a free handed heart.
Stamping plate that I used is BPL-009 from Born Pretty Store.

Here's another shot.

Last but not the least, is this super simple basic stamping using gold over a pretty purple base from Sally Hansen. The gold polish that I used is Bold Gold from Maybeline and the stamping plate is BPL-027 from Born Pretty Store.

And that's it for today!

Hope you guys liked it!

Guest Post: Gift Ideas a Nail Artist Will Rave About!

Hey guys!

Happy Monday! This is a post from my friend who owns and operates Gift Canyon, a gift-centric website. If you are having trouble looking for gift ideas, you can check that blog out!

Nail art had become so popular among the fashionably inclined teenage and young adult ladies. Those who can do nail art are very rare, though. A person must have both the ability to create colourful, flawless artwork on a very small canvass and the passion for caring for the nails of the hands and feet. Have a nail artist who create such tiny dazzling art on (hopefully, your) nails? Here are some gift ideas a nail artist will geek out at!

1. Nail Art Supplies

Nail polish, glitter and stick-on accents… A nail artist has so much talent and ideas that she cannot have too much of nail arts supplies for her crafts. The beauty of this gift idea is that even if you get a duplicate from her supplies kit, she will eventually run out and will use your gift!

2. Hand and Foot Salve

Good looking nails are nothing on rough and hard hands and feet. Kamay at paang magsasaka? Ew!!!

To help her maintain the surroundings of her art, you can also give her a nice smelling hand and foot salve. My favourite would be the hand and foot salve from Human Nature which smells amazing with its creamy, minty smell. It also takes care of calluses, making them easier to scrub off after just a few days of religious application.

3. Toe-Touch Spa Machine

You know the foot massage machines that manicurists use in salons? They are called toe-touch spa machines. Since a nail artist subjects her feet to stress while doing a lot of nail art, a quick foot massage will help rejuvenate the feet before any new nail polish application. It also keeps the skin of the feet looking nice, which is a big turn on for the boys!

4. A Trip to the Spa

Most ladies love getting pampered, so why not take her to a spa with you? After your spa date, she will have both Instagram-ready face and skin that will go well with her beautiful hands and feet! #nofilter for real!

Also, after the spa date, you can go to a nice dinner to cap the stress-busting night.

5. Create a Blog for Them

Getting them a self-hosted blog with their name as the domain is a nice idea. This will give her the avenue to express herself, communicate with people of the same interest and even earn from her hobby.

And that's it! I hope you liked Kit's post.
