French Manicure Acrylic Nails

Hi guys! I know I'm way behind my blog post schedule due to unforeseen incidences. To make it up to you, I'll be sharing with you today the classic french manicure but what's different about this is its done with acrylic nails instead of the natural nail. 

After 5 days of searching and studying about acrylic nails, I was finally able to buy my own set. I was supposed to be taught by a nail professional but then time didn't allow it. I was in a hurry to get home then and the place where I bought my kit was a bit far from my place so I wasn't able to revisit it again for the tutorial. 

Happily after 3 hours of working on it, I was able to do my nails. Wipee!

What I think you should know about acrylic nails and its process...

Orange Nail Polish and Orange for Colds

Hey there! I'm back. Hopefully I'm not too late for my Thursday post, it's almost midnight here in the Philippines. I'm here to share with you another nail polish swatch from Body Raves line.

Now you might be wondering why I picked the color orange. Well, its because I wanted to match the nail polish color with how my day went by.

Waking up today was a really bad start. I caught an awful cold and I was slightly feverish but I still had to go to school because of some important requirements which I have to attend to. When I got home from school around 4pm, I immediately rested and dozed off. I found myself waking up hungry for oranges and thought that it will also be good for me and my cold.

So here's the orange nail polish swatch from Body Rave.

I ate a bunch of oranges and while thinking of a blog post to write about...

Hologram Nails

Hi guys! Have you ever heard of hologram nail polish?
I'm here to share with you another line of nail polish from Faceshop. I recently found out about this "Hologram" nail polish which I bought around 4 days ago and I was able to try it last night only. Well, it came out really good and I found it easy to apply on the nails.

The secret behind hologram nail polish...

My Blog Post Schedule

Hey guys! I've decided to inform you about my blog post schedule. Now that topics and daily requirements in college are getting more demanding, I'll probably won't have time to blog everyday.

I'll be posting twice a week every Tuesday and Thursday and if possible I'll be posting at most thrice a week. If I miss a post, I will probably publish it on a Saturday or a Sunday to make up for the day that I missed blogging.

That's all. Have a good night everyone! :)

Purple Spotted Cow Print

I have great news guys! The memory card which I lost last night, finally showed up. [I still believe that a supernatural being was behind it. Yikes!] As mentioned in my previous post, I already turned my room upside down to look for the memory card but awhile ago as I was getting my camera, because I wanted to check the battery compartment, the memory card dropped out of who-knows-where. [By the way, my camera isn't the one where the battery and the memory card is in the same compartment. Freaky, that it literally just fell out from sky?] I'm so happy now that I got the pictures back.

More stamping nail art tips and tricks for you! :D

If you guys were able to see my previous post, I inserted a sneak peek picture for this nail art which I took via my phone. Now you'll be able to see the nail art clearer. Wipee!

Ever wondered if there was an alternative for cracking nail polishes?

Well here it is!

Yellow Mellow

Hi guys! This is a "substitute" post for today. I did this nail art first then made another one because I wasn't satisfied by the look. But as I was about to post the pictures and transfer it from my memory card to my laptop, BAM!

I lost the memory card which I clearly remembered was placed on my bed. I'm suspecting there's a supernatural thing going on here. :)) HAHA. Hopefully not. Scaryyyyy! I tried looking for it everywhere but I gave up after an hour. I even asked my Nanay to help me look for it but we still couldn't find it. I am hoping that tomorrow it shows up out of nowhere. I'm so frustrated because that memory card contains all the pictures I took from my second nail art creation.

If it doesn't show up tomorrow ;((
I'll just try to make another one.

Oh well, maybe it's not meant to be posted for tonight.

If you like squares and other geometric shapes, then you'll be fond of this nail art .

Want to see more pictures of this?

9/11 Tribute Nail Art

Most of the nail art I have created are usually just an aesthetic design for the nails but now I've decided to make it more worthy of publishing. The primary reason for this nail art is to give tribute in remembrance of  those men, women, children, police, firemen and others who have lost their lives to the 9/11 terrorist attack which most of us might have already forgotten.

I received this baller from my older cousin (Ate Karla) in awareness of the 9/11 event. My grandma (Nanay Celly) who was also with her during their visit, told me about how the 9/11 memorial museum was filled with grief and mourning. My brother who was able to visit it last year couldn't help but cry just seeing the letters written  in post-its of children (post-its were formed that of the Statue of Liberty) to their parents they've lost. If I am to visit USA again, I'll be sure to visit the 9/11 memorial museum.

Here are more pictures of the baller and how I did the nail art...

Pink Paint & Pink Coach Signature Ipad Case

Hello! I just came home from school and today has been half good and half bad. To relieve my stress due to school work and other things, I decided to paint my nails pink and it turned out like this...

Pink has been my favorite color from the time when that Power Rangers TV Show became a hit because my favorite character there, Kimberly, was in pink. HAHA. I embraced the loud pink color ever since. And I think that "embrace" is an understatement as to how I love the color pink. If you are a close friend of mine, you would know that almost all of my stuff are pink except for my everyday casual clothing. My room, my iPhone bumper, bedsheet, pillow, comforter, teddy bear, file cases are only a few examples out of the many things I own that are in pink.

Now, I'd like to share with you guys some of my pink colored stuff that arrived from USA.

Starting Over, Again (How To Start Blogging)

Hey guys! I don’t even know where to start. After weeks of imagining, days of reading, hours of dreaming and seconds of talking about non-sense, I can’t believe I am now writing my first blog post. At first, I was thinking whether to import the blog posts from my older blog (Designer Tips by Angela) or to start off fresh but I decided to choose the latter.

Instead of jumping right into the numerous things I can tell you about nail art, which I will be talking mostly about given that this, is partly 80% a nail art blog, I figured I might as well start with how I conceptualized and built this blog from the start.

And of course, give full credit to those blog authors who have helped my way through all the successful customization process.

So how did I really do it?
