Black and White Nail Art

Whee.. did I mention that I love receiving parcels? XD It's like opening pressies! I absolutely love the feeling hahaha. and it's so addictive till.....

... this happens.  (._.) and these are just part of them for this month what turf.

Anyway, of all the parcels, the one that I'm most anticipated and interested with are these! 
Some pearls, tiny metal balls, laces, decorating stuffs made of soft clays, lacey nail stickers, some brushes etc... and a pair of falsies?! lol which I think is a free gift haha 

I got all the stuffs at quite a low price, compared to many sites that I've visited. The service is good too, it didn't took long for these to arrive even though they are sent from east m'sia. I initially wanted to get the acrylic nail art stuffs since I've always been drawing and decorating my nails and the pre-made ones are not really cheap and sometimes not even cute! what turf. So I thought it could be nice if I just buy the tools and make whatever things I want, like bunnies and rilakkuma haha! But I end up didn't buy them because after I read up some articles online; according to them, unprofessional use of it could lead to the risk of having weak, brittle nails, or worse, having allergic reaction to it. o.o I don't know how true is that, but it's better not risk. Save the troubles also haha, since the procedure seems really mafan. =3=

Done sorting them!

and Tadaa! This is my first nail art done using the tools! lol Inspired by Tsubasa's black and white nail art featured in the Nail Up! magazine. 

First I painted my nails by alternating the black and white nail polishes. I hardly buy dark colored nail polish so this is the darkest shade I have. Glittery black, which looks more like a grey color haha.

Then use a french manicure nail strip tape to paint the white color tip.  Newbie like me still have problem peeling the strip D: The paint came off a little haihs. 

For dotting part, I used the two-way nail art pen from Tony Moly which Vin-chan got for me as an omiyage. It's super useful! ♥
Alternatively you can use a dotting tool like the pink one shown above, which is also quite nice to use, provided that you have a stable hand lol :( 

Its quite messy but I like hahah! I'll be doing another one this weekend since exam is over! Whee! 
and it'll most probably be a girly themed one! ✿
