NOTD : First Time with Black Nails

Hey lovelies!

It's been a while since I posted an NOTD of my own. I usually just used nail polishes that I have blogged before and I've been very lazy to do any nail art.

But just recently, as I was browsing at Watsons, I realized that I haven't worn any black polishes before... well, I did use some black ones on some nail arts before to create some of the details but... I think those weren't even nail polishes but acrylic paints. Lol

So I bought this pretty little thing from Essence...

Essence Nail Colour 3 in Ticket to the Show

I also used a nail art polish in white on some of my nails.

I was trying to create some roses on the ones with white polish but obviously I failed. I didn't use any reference and the brush was hard for me to control. Oh well. I just say their abstract when people ask me what the prints are. :P

I used the dark shade on all the nails and applied the other shade (those with gold glitters) on selected nails.

I took this photo after 4 days of wearing the polishes so some are already starting to chip off. 

I can't say that what I did is really pretty but it's quite wearable. It still looks feminine. The reason I'm not attracted to black polish is that it looks so... sad. I mean I like black... most of my clothes are black because it is so classy and it makes me look 5 pounds lighter. Haha! But plain black nails are just not so attractive for me. They make my nails look smaller and it reminds me too much of themes like heavy rock, emos and the like (I'm not saying I'm against those or anything, it's just that I am not into any of those), so I tried to mix things up a bit so that my NOTD would sync with what I like. :)

And I guess that's all for this NOTD post. I'll just share with you this watercolor painting I did just because I was bored one night.

I did use some colored pencils in some areas like the guy's coat because I got lazy to get my watercolor again. Haha! 

And by the way, any of you watched the series finale of How I Met Your Mother? Thoughts? Would definitely want to hear them because Liz and I are fans of the show. :D



  1. I love the nail art, and your painting/drawing is amazing! I wish I have that talent. Haha. :)

    1. Thanks Juvy! I still need to practice though. :D

  2. nice drawing! I don't watch that show but I'm a super fan of the "The Big Bang Theory" wahehehe

    1. Thanks, Hollie! I love The Big Bang Theory too! :D

  3. The roses on the thumb are actually pwede na :P This is a good idea. But I'm thinking lace might also "girlie" it up and be easier to do :D

    1. Ooooh! Love the suggestion! Maybe I'll try one sometime soon. :D
