So I definitely was worried about this challenge but what a surprised this turned out to be. See how I overcame my stamping dilemma, discovering some tips and tricks to make stamping my new best friend :)

Nail Challenge Day 13: Cheer yourself

I've been called the Gradient Queen before :) I love doing gradients and have done quite a few using the regular method of polish and sponges but seeing a revamped version using stripper brush polishes puts a fun twist to my favorite manicure :)

Nail Challenge Day 12: Tape Mani

Stripper tape anyone? I was lucky enough to stumble upon stripper tape at a recent nail trade show and decided to use this for what else but a tape manicure :) It is pretty easy to use just make sure you have a sharp scissors at hand to cut clean edges.

Makeup Bee Pink Butterfly

Hello Beautiful! Well it's springtime in some parts of the world and I am joining in the fun with a springtime manicure inspired by bright bold colours of flowers and butterflies. My nail design today is all handpainted using a base of polish and nail art with acrylic paints. This look is also special to me since it's my MakeupBee entry into their first nail art competition being hosted by the Nail Art Society.

Lines and shapes comes to mind when I think geometric. The use of thin lines from the stripper brush polishes are quite handy for these designs. Here's my Geometric squares and rectangles nail art :)

Dancing the Samba

The Samba is a Brazilian dance that is lively and fun filled with rhythm dancing alongside Samba music. I'm in such a dancing mood with my new hair streaked with golden goodness and bright eye colours.

Nail Challenge Day 9: Golden Chic Saran Wrap

It's amazing how simple techniques like this one; the saran wrap can produce simply stunning designs. All you need is at least two contrasting colours and some saran wrap of course. For my Golden Chi Saran Wrap nails I'm using a chocolate brown with golden shimmer called Midtown Magic from China Glaze and Gold Plated from L.A.Girl Metal polish line.

Oh how I love flakies! Chunks of gold embedded in a clear base. It has the power to transform just a regular coloured polish into something special.
