NOTD: Flowers in Red

Hi everyone! How was your previous week? I bet a lot of you are now back in the office after a long vacation. Unlike others who went out of town on those long days, I spent mine discreetly at home. Locked inside my room and was just reflecting on what happened in my life. There was a little drama (of course) but I came out refreshed and rejuvenated. Seems like I went off the beach as well. You, what's your share of story? ^_^

Cheers to another week now that Christ was reborn. Anyway, here's another Manicure Monday I have for you guys and gals.


This NOTD was just finished an hour ago and there you'll see the marks of an imperfect design. Obviously, the flower design were not pasted properly. I was thinking of erasing it again and start with the whole process but hey, who cares. I find it nice and cool anyway. I think my reflection taught me to appreciate perfect and imperfect things in life. ^.~
 

This was done with the help of a nail stamping kit from Born Pretty Store. I had mine last year and haven't used it. Good thing I started Manicure Monday and it reminded me that I have other stuff that are hiding inside my storage box.

Also, I got the chance to take some photos of each step unlike my last Manicure Monday. Here it goes.


































STEPS:
1. Paint your base coat then paint your desired color. I chose the Regular Copper Red from Caress.
2. Choose what design you want from the metal plate then cover it with a lighter color. I used Etude House Light Pink CPK001. 
3. Use the scraper tool to remove the excess polish.
4. Then use the stamp to get the desired design.
5. Transfer it to your finger. Repeat steps 1-4 again on each finger.
6. Dainty nails! ♥



I had a hard time making each nail perfect because it's my first time to use the tool. I hope I'll get used to it more. I actually tried other designs but some are difficult to be pulled off. Lucky this flower behaves well.

Excuse the dim photos since it's already dark when I finished this notd. I hope someone still likes it anyway. What can you say? Hope you can share your thoughts. xoxo.

    1. kinda.. but i think it's easier if you are already sanay with the tool. I'm still a noob. :)

  5. Cute flowers. I also have a set of nail coloring and nail art things but I'm too scared to try them so I'll bring them in a salon and have the manicurist apply on me.

  6. Oh! So this is how you use that tool! I saw that once in a bazaar and I was so unsure if it really works. Now because I read your post I'm definitely gonna buy one soon ;)
