fimo flower

hello, girls! i've got something new for you today:fimo flowers!
this is what you will need:

first, as always apply base coat and 1-2 coats of pink(or every color of your choice):

after that, you have to take a thin brush red polish and finely add strokes starting above the base of the nail, so that it creates a fading effect:

now, take a thin brush polish with gold sparkles and do the same think.

it's time for the fimo flowers. take pink and blue flowers and gentle add them to the corners of the nails, making sure to press them so they won't fall.

add silver sparkles on the tip of the nails, round the flower for a better grip. and that's all! hope you like it!

how to: apply rhinestones

hi! i'm gonna teach you how to apply rhinestones. after you have done your manicure and you feel it's kind of boring, you can always add some spice:add rhinestones! at first apply some base coat on the nail, choose what kind of rhinestones you like.take a wet q-tip with whom you lift the rhinestones and place them on the right spot. the q-tip being wet helps you to have more control over what you are lifting up, and you can apply a little bit of pressure on the rhinestone so it will adhere better. add heavy top coat and you're done!  

pink & purple request

hi! this was a request by my sister-in-law Gaby. she wanted something pink and with rhinestones. so..this is it!

i've applied base coat, one thick coat of pink and draw 3 heavy lines with purple, then quickly with a toothpick mixed the two color, going in zig-zag! i applied some small blue rhinestones on the tip and a light blue flower on the middle of the nail. at the end, i've applied 2 coats of top coat, just to make sure that the rhinestones won't fall of! hope you like it . enjoy:*

how to do a hygienic manicure

in a previous post i've mentioned that you should do a hygienic manicure at least once a week. today i'm gonna show you how to do it. the first think you have to do is clean your nails if you have any nail polish on them .

you have to use an acetone free enamel remover. i'm using AVON's "nail experts enamel remover acetone free". it's really good.

after that, you have to use a scrub to massage your hands & nails. i'm using AVON's "rough skin remover", to exfoliate and to remove any dead skin.

then, in a bowl of warm water add some oils or some bubble bath and soak your hands for 5-8 min.

dry your hands with a cloth, and clip your nails if necessary.

push your cuticles with a special tool, you can find them at any nail supply store. since you have soaked your nails, this step will be much easier to do.

file and buff your nails, using a nail buffer.

use a cuticle oil, or simply some olive oil to massage your cuticles so they are hydrated and you don't have that ugly dead skin that sometimes is soring.

the last step is applying a base coat. you always have to have base coat on your nails, even if you're not wearing any nail polish, always put base coat. mine is from CORAL, it has calcium and UV filter, it protects the nail from breakage. you can choose whatever works best for you and your nails.

and there you have, healthy looking nails.after you are done don't forget the hand & nail cream with vitamin E, calcium and glycerine.

purple nails!!!!!!

hi! i've purchase a new nail polish, it's purple and i've done a purple design, of course!!!! start with base coat , 1-2 coats of purple(or any color of your choice).

then you take a white nail polish(a matte one, just like the one for french manicure)and draw two lines in the corner of the nail, it doesn't have to be perfect, then draw another two lines with pink.

take a glittery nail polish and a thin tip brush and start dragging your nail polish towards the very corner of the nail so that it drags all colors.

if you want to, you can add some rhinestones, i chose some blue ones, but this is optional. here's how everything should look like.

hope you like it. let me know if you try it out, or if you have any questions! bizou:*

hello! spring has finally arrived and all the creatures are coming to life. so i've created butterflies!!!!!yey.....! start with base coat and 1-2 coats of a bright pink!

then apply 1-2 coats of sparkle.

take a piece of blotting paper and blot some white polish, with a pen make 2-3 dots one next to the other and on the other side make other 2-3 dots. with a toothpick drag from the middle of every dot towards the center, and in the center place another white dot. make 2-3 dots on the outside if you want to . add top coat and enjoy!!!


hi, girl! today i've tried to do a "swirl" design. apply base coat, one thick coat of pink, than quickly draw black lines like a "+" then two others in between, take a toothpick and from the center start making circles, so that you drag the nailpolish and make a swirl effect. add top coat and that's all! bizou:*

smile! it confuses people

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In seventy-seven and sixty-nine revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn't play guitar
Not everybody drove a car
When music really mattered and when radio was king
When accountants didn't have control
And the media couldn't buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn't know everything

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In seventy-seven and sixty-nine revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When pop stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when god saved the queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
My mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In seventy-seven and sixty-nine revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs
And playing games meant kick arounds
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In seventy-seven and sixty-nine revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
I was born too late into a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

stamping nail art

hi, girls! i wanna show you today a different type of nail art:stamping!
start with base coat,1-2 cots of a bold color(i chose orange) . then the fun begins. you need special stamping tools for this.

you have a special blade with different patterns on it, i chose to do a flower. apply black polish on the design like in the picture.

then, with an eraser , take all of the excess nail polish.

with a special stamp, go over your design and apply it on your finger nail.

and you're done! apply top coat and some rhinestones if you like.

tiger print

hello girls! this is a super easy design. all you need is a base coat, red & black nail polish and a thin brush. apply your base coat and 1-2 coats of red. then, with your thin brush draw thin black lines starting from the outside of the nail towards the inside. don't draw the lines facing each other, but "to complete themselves". it's better if you practice a few strokes on a piece of paper, then on your nails, just to get a steady hand. let me know if you try it out. bizou:*
