Orange themed nails!

Hello ladies! Today I have a set of Orange themed nails for you!

Orange themed nails

I had been doing a lot nail art designs with 1 nail accent and thought I'll try doing all different designs on each of my nails this time! What do you think?

I used a total of 3 Orange shades for this set of nail art.

Orange themed nails

Thumb + Pinky Fingers: China Glaze Sun Of a Peach
Index Ring Fingers:  China Glaze White On White & China Glaze Stoked To Be Soaked
Middle Finger: Color Club Orange Crush

Initially I only wanted to use 2 shades of Orange which are Sun Of A Peach and Orange Crush, before I realize that Sun Of A Peach is much too bright and doesn't match well with Orange Crush. So I thought I'll add in a medium shade and make it like an ombre towards the middle finger.

Here's a close-up on Color Club Orange Crush:

Color Club Orange Crush

Color Club Orange Crush is a mix of pale Orange, Pink and Yellow matte glitters in a clear base. The polish can be used on it's own or over a base color, but I think I prefer it on it's own like this cos it shows the color of the polish better. :)

Where to buy Nail Polish Online in Singapore

Hi Ladies, please excuse me for a short commercial break in between the nail art & swatch pictures. :)

I sometimes get the question of 'where I get my nail polishes' from some of my readers in Singapore & Malaysia, so I figured I'll answer this in a blog post and pin it somewhere. :)

Duo-color Tips

Duo-color Tips

Another set of french tips manicure today! I really love french tips because they look so clean & nice even when your nails grow out. :)

Today's nails was actually inspired by a stranger on the train. I was standing beside her and she had this design on her nails.. And the first  thought that flashed through my mind was.. this is actually easy enough for me to do.

So.. tadah! What do you think?

For my base, I used OPI Int’l Crime Caper which is a pearly white shimmer polish with purple flash. I think this polish would look really great over a dark base as well.

Here's a pic with a better view of the purple flash..

Duo-color Tips

As for the tips, I used 2 of the creme shades from the OPI Coca Cola collection - OPI You're So Vain-illa and OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today.

OPI You're So Vain-illa is a light beige creme polish, while OPI Sorry I'm Fizzy Today is a creamy light pink polish. Both shades had great formula and are both inspired by the Vanilla Coke.. which is probably why I keep wanting to pair the 2 of them together.

That's all for today! I'm actually doing my nails again while typing out this post.. I'm on a roll! Haha.. All I can say is the new camera is really motivating me to do my nails more often!

Look forward to my new post soon!

Ice Cream Nails with Color Club So Crumby

I have found a new motivation to paint my nails again. :)

I bought a DSLR camera recently, something much more professional than what I was using previously. Not that I'm actually a professional or anything at taking photos (I just used it on auto mode), but damn did the photo turned out gorgeous!

Check out my first nail photos taken using my new Canon DSLR!

Color Club So Crumby

Okay, I must admit that I'm not very good at this yet, so the close up isnt very clear. But it does look really good a little zoomed out like this right? Doesnt it look like those artsy tumblr photos? :)

For this manicure, I used So Crumby from the Color Club Limited Cookies & Cream collection - a light blue creme polish filled with tiny black glitters.

The polish did tend to get slightly thick quickly, but it's still manageable if you work fast. I managed to get this in 3 quick coats.

Another artsy photo! haha!

For those located in Singapore, the Color Club Cookie & Cream collection consisting of 6 delicious looking shades is now available at!
