KKcenterhk products & Halloween manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you the products I received from KKcenterhk and also a Halloween 
manicure I created using on of their image plates. 
There are three different image plates I got- m40 (the equivalent for m22 Konad palte), 
B115 and B23 (the equivalent for m33 Konad palte) - and also a stamper and a scrapper. 
The designs work perfectly well for stamping and the price of each image plate is $5.05.
They carry a wide range of products which they ship internationally. 

I created my manicure using B115 image plate. I painted my nails two coats of Illamasqua 
-Gamma except my ring finger, on which I applied Illamasqua -Faux Pas. After stamping 
the designs, I applied a clear top coat. What do you think?

Go Pink Wednesday - Houndstooth manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you my fourth 'Go Pink Wednesday' manicure. As you might now,
'Go Pink Wednesday' series were created in order to make people aware breast cancer. 
You can see my previous designs by clicking on their titles: Butterfly wings (October 3rd),
Ribbon manicure (October 10th) and Pink zebra nails (October 17th).  

For today's manicure, I used m63 Konad plate to create the design. I started with two coats
of Miss Sporty Lasting Colour -Vintage and then I stamped over the design using Oriflame 
-Silver Lining. As you can see, this nail polish works great for stamping. Then I took a 
thin brush and created a diagonal line with the pink nail polish. Finally, I painted another
coat of pink bellow the previously created line. I finished with a clear top coat. 
What do you think?

Sponge crackled manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you a manicure I created using a technique I haven't used until now,
crackled manicure done with a sponge. I started with two coats of Flormar -MG05, 
then I applied the Black Crackling Nail Polish from Born Pretty on a sponge and
tapped over the nail. I cleared the mess on my cuticles using a brush and acetone.
 Finally, I applied a clear top coat. This is the result. What do you think?

Go Pink Wednesday -Pink zebra nails

Hi,
Today I'll show you my white and pink animal print nail art for this Wednesday.
I started with a coat of Born Pretty -Matt Dull White and then, using a sponge, I
made some pink lines either on the middle of the nails, or on their extremities. For this 
step I used Sinful Colors -Cream Pink. Then, using Stripe Rite -Black, I created 
the zebra print. I did this freehand. In order that I got the lines thicker at the margin
and thinner at the center, I had to apply more pressure on the brush when I painted
 the margin and less and less pressure as I went to the center. I finished with a
clear top coat. What do you think?

Sprayed nails TUTORIAL (Autumn Design)

Hi,
Today I'll show you a new technique for an original, cute manicure. 
1. Paint your nails two coats of any nail polish you like. I used Glitter Gal -Skater Girl Green. 
You can see its swatch here
2. Take a perfume sample bottle that has an atomizer and one or two different nail polishes 
to spray over the base colour. 
3. Poor the nail polish in the perfume sample bottle so as to fill about a quarter of it.
4. Apply some scotch tape on your cuticles for protection.
5. Spray the nail polish on the nails. 
6*. If you want to spray another colour, poor a small quantity of acetone in the perfume 
sample bottle and clean it using an ear stick. Repeat steps 3-5. 
The nail polishes I used for spraying are Sinful Colors -Rich in heart and Illamasqua -Gamma.
7. After it is all done, apply a clear top coat to protect your design and add a beautiful shine.
What do you think? Are you going to try it?

Glitter Gal -Skater Girl Green

Hi,
Today I'll show you the swatch for a nail polish from new Glitter Gal's Neon Collection.
It is called Skater Girl Green and you can see two coats applied in the pictures. It is a 
very beautiful, shiny, light green shade. Applied in a single coat, it is more like a
translucent shade, but two coat fully covers the nail. The brush is very easy to handle.
You can but it online at glittergal.com.au for $14.95

Sinful Colors -Dream on over the white base colour. I finished with the Konad 
Special Top Coat. What do you think?

Blue animal print manicure

Hi,
Today I'll show you a manicure I did using m57 Konad plate. I started with two coats
of Astor #070 on all my nails except the thumb and ring finger, for which I used Matt Dull White 
from Born Pretty. Then I stamped the zebra design on the blue nails and the leopard print on
the others. After sticking the whole design on the stamper, I cleaned the surplus with my nail
and so I got that diagonal print. I filled in the black prints using the blue nail polish and I
finished with a clear top coat. What do you think?

Go Pink Wednesday -Butterfly wings

Hi,
Today I'll show you a manicure I've done before, only using different colours. 
You can see the previous one here. For this one I decided to use pink, as it is October
and the month when extra attention is paid to breast cancer. I started with two coats of
Picture Polish -Hot and then I stamped the design from A07 image plate, using Konad 
-Special White. I stuck some sparkling silver sequins from a brand called Truth of isis.
 I finished with a clear top coat. What do you think?
