2. Cotton Pad
3. Tweezers

5. Tiny Brush
6. Bling blings
7. Basecoat, top coat
8. 2 colour of your choice in matte
9. the same 2 colours but in shimmer.


Before the plastic surgery


You can make your own nail polish corrector by following the steps above!
You can use it to rub off nail polish that is on your skin which is very near the nail.
I am no manicurist ok.... I am doing this the guerilla style just by using my inner artist's common sense!!

After making your nail polish corrector. Buff your nails. First sand them so that your nails are smooth, after that shine them up!

You will get a healthy shine at the end of the buff something like this.


Paint on a coat of base coat on your nails. This is to make sure your nail polish stays on for as long as it can! (I think)

Paint your nails white or the lighter colour if you are using other colors.
Don't worry if your edges aren't clean, you can use the nail polish corrector to clean them up at the end!
Wait for them to dry.


Using the small brush, get the red/darker colour and dab from the bottom slowing moving up!
You will get a gradient effect like above.
Sorry la, I don't have an airbrush thingie.. so I made do with brush dabbing. Works what. hehe.


At the end, you get something like this. Wait for them to dry.


Now use the white shimmer and apply on the white area only.


Then use the pink shimmer and apply on the red area. Paint a little over the white area to blend the 2 colours together.

Pick up a big diamond and stick it on your nails after applying Top Coat on the back of the diamond as the glue.
Use the tweezers for easy application.

After you are done, you will get something like this.

Now, stick on the smaller diamonds.
First, paint your nail with the top coat. Its impossible to pick them up with the tweezer so use the toothpick, dip it in the top coat.
Use the toothpick to pick up the diamond and stick them on your nail.
Work on one nail at a time.

You will get something like this.

Now use the nail polish corrector and rub off all the nail polish that is on your finger skin. Clean up all the nail edges.


Finish off by applying 2 coats of top coat on your nails!
Remember to apply more on the bling bling area!


Tada!! So shiny!!!


Now I look like some rich girl. Good. I am going to play mahjong now. pfeh.

For the first time, I suceeded in giving myself a nice nail art.
