Aztec craze

Aztec designs are very popular among my customers, next to floral! A reference provided by a customer as seen here, and here are my versions, slightly modified and different color schemes chosen by customers! 

This customer requested for a pale purple base color, which I used China Glaze Sweet Hook. She also requested for black/white color scheme alternating with pastel color scheme! This manicure took me some time due to the precision, and all 10 nails had different variations to them. 

Her nails are not particularly long, but I managed to squeeze and adjust accordingly and make modifications along the way. Overall, I am quite happy with the final look, but the lines can be more crisp and precise I guess! 

This other customer requested to alternate aztec design with ribbons, a feminine rocker feel in a way? I used OPI Mermaid's Tears as the base color for the aztec nails, and China Glaze Dance Baby for the ribbon nails. Her nails were rather long and I could work on a slightly more complicated design on them! Both the nails on her index fingers broke, explaining the short nails ): 

Aztec is still a trend now, and looks like it will stay for quite a while! I look forward to doing more of them in future!

Love Paris?

Hello everyone, I'm back! After a grueling month of exams and studying, I'm finally free! (for now)
So yay, I'm gonna be back FULL FORCE to make your nails pretty!

So I had 2 customers who chose the Paris Eiffel Tower design that was on Mynt's nailwheel, and I tried my best to replicate the design. I promise I will do a better mock up soon!

This is a very sweet combination, classic pink, white and black, which goes very nicely together! A very simple Eiffel Tower design here, along with simple lace and polka dot designs on the rest of the nails! I think the pink and white stripes makes them look like a wallpaper design, I would love to have a wall with such decals! 

This is a funkier version, with a mix requested by the customer! This customer always like to have a variety of designs on her nails, no exception this time round! With a light blue background this time, there is a mix of simple aztec, dots and lines, and rainbow with a star on the thumb! I think the whole combination is very funky and cheerful, fitting for her personality! 

I will be blogging more often, so do check back, and if you haven't, do like my Facebook Page to be notified of any latest updates! (:
