If I have FOTDs from the past >>read post here<< I definitely have NOTDs from the past.
I used to be nail salon addict, it’s like I am having my nails done every two weeks. Due to financial constraints I need to slash down my regular trip to the salon. Beside le bf is not a fan of my neon green polishes. (I love eye catching nail polishes and nail art)
I can clean my own nails but I am not really talented in putting nail polish. I get frustrated every time there’s an uneven application.
I even got myself a nail art machine but using it was such an epic fail. Now it’s inside the box looking for someone who will use it more often than I do.
Now I only get my nails done if I will be attending special occasions. There’s no nail salon near our area, I need to go to SM Calamba to look for a decent salon.
Yesterday, GirlStuff forever sent me these.
It’s like my love for nail polish rekindled in just a sec. Since my sister is good at this I will let her paint my nails.
I am so excited to showcase them all to you. I shall make a separate introduction about GirlStuff early next week so you will see.
Meanwhile I grabbed some old photos of my nails.
Any purple and platinum catches my eyes. I like having neat nails for work. If I am not mistaken this was done at Nail-a-holics in SM Megamall.
If I am feeling a little edgy I ask the manicurist to do some nail art. Here she made me a tiger stripes. She used Touch of Tan here by Caronia and then a random black polish.
When I wore this nails all the people in our meeting got distracted. They told me that I have cute nails. haha
I had my nails done and I wanted to try the nail art machine I bought, but the polish included in the machine was too rubbery. So I ended up doing some random designs on my nails – abstract is the right word. I am also testing the Aperture setting of my camera that time.
Much worst, I paired it with cracked nails for my toes. haha
The reason I don’t wear much nail polish now is because they chip off easily.
I was afraid to wear this pussy red nails because I thought it will make my hands darker than its original skin tone but it looked good.
And for my most recent nails, March 16, 2013 I played safe by using a matte metallic polish.
I am happy that I have taken a photograph of my nails. Now I am thinking if I will do this again, I really can’t do it on my own hands. LOL
I salute all the girls like Aya of codenameaya.com for doing a wonderful job for their nails.
Who does your nails? Do you suck at DIY manicures like me?
