Nail Polish Rings!

I have something exciting to share today! This is really my latest most favourite thing now! Today I’m going to share about.. tadah! Nail Polish Rings!

Nail polish rings are essentially handmade rings made using glass cabochons and of course, nail polishes! They are really unique and the possibilities are endless!

I have wanted to make these jewelries for quite some time already but I couldnt get the materials I want locally so this project was delayed for quite a while. I also wanted to get a ring setting that will protect the nail polish as we all know, nail polish chips even with top coat so I really wanted to get a ring setting that seals everything in.

I cant wait to share what I have done so far! These patterns/designs are all thought up by me! All of them are layering polishes so far, using about 2-3 different polishes layered to create these effects. I really love them to bits!

This is my 1st polish ring, created based on criteria listed by my BFF! Glass is not glued yet so dont mind the empty space there.

Blurred to show the glitter awesome-ness~!

For this I wanted to create something Merry Midnight/Fowl Play like. The colour is actually more purple than blue in real life.

Like the galaxy~~~ <3!!

This is another one based on another of my BFF’s criteria, but there will be something more for her’s which I will not say what yet. Can you see the flakies in it?!

The white frost on the glass is just light reflected from the lamp. Not present in actual ring.

Blurred to show the burst of colors!

This 1.. I think I was inspired by some rings I saw online. haha! Photo doesnt do it justice!

Blurred to show.. Holo glitters! See! I told you the above photos doesnt do it justice!

For girls located in Singapore, these rings are currently been sold now on Polishalley.wordpress.com

Each ring is S$6 each including free normal postage. They are all 17mm in diameter and with copper ring setting & adjustable ring sizes! You might want to measure your finger and see if you can accept the size cos some people might find it too small.

These rings are splash-proof but not recommended for you wear in the shower or to swimming! 

I simply love make these.. definitely going to make more! Do you like them like I do?!

Inspired By A Movie (Day 23)

The movie that inspired my nails today is “Marley and Me” starred by Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston.

"Marley and Me" is a very heart warming and funny movie about a couple having the worst dog in the world, which is Marley, and the many funny things he did growing from a puppy to a full grown adult Labrador to finally when he passed away. The movie also covers how the couple’s life changed after having Marley, and with Owen’s and Jennifer’s excellent acting, this movie quickly became one of my favourite!

The base colour that I have chosen for this manicure is Milani 3D because Marley is a golden Labrador thus I thought a gold base would be perfect for this. For the paw paints, I used black acrylic paint and a medium sized dotting tool to dot 3 connecting dots together, and 4 small dots around it. It’s actually really easy!

If you have not watched this movie, I recommend you go and do it especially if you like dogs! I guarantee you’ll get a good laugh out of it!

Inspired By A Song (Day 22)
The song that I&#8217;m using for my inspiration is &#8216;The Climb&#8217; by Miley Cyrus! The lyrics goes like this:
There&#8217;s always gonna be another mountainI&#8217;m always gonna wanna make it moveAlways gonna be a uphill battleSometimes I&#8217;m gonna have to loseAin&#8217;t about how fast I get thereAin&#8217;t about what&#8217;s waiting on the other sideIt&#8217;s the climb
It&#8217;s quite a nice song actually. Liked it alot.
Based on the lyrics, I drew some mountains and a stick guy climbing the mountain. I know the nail art isn&#8217;t very logical cos the guy is like the size of half a mountain but hey.. let&#8217;s not care about the details. LOL
The red on my ring finger and pinkie is actually my red holo franken. I know it doesn&#8217;t look holo at all, because it disappeared under the top coat! I don&#8217;t know why! It&#8217;s holo in the bottle, it&#8217;s holo on my finger, and it just disappeared under the top coat! :(

The song that I’m using for my inspiration is ‘The Climb’ by Miley Cyrus! The lyrics goes like this:

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

It’s quite a nice song actually. Liked it alot.

Halloween Nails
A little break from my 31 days challenge cos it&#8217;s Halloween! Of course I must do a Halloween themed nails right? My Halloween nails is not too scary as I am a down-right coward.. LOL.. so no eyeballs &amp; dripping blood for me!
The base colour I have used today is 3D from Milani Holographic collection. I know I should use a orange base for my Halloween mani but as we can see from the last post, orange is not so suitable for my skin tone. This is so much prettier!
This is my first time using Milani polish and I am very satisfied with it! The brush is actually very similar to China Glaze&#8217;s so it&#8217;s very easy to use and application is great! As for colour wise, 3D is a yellowish-gold base shade with silvery shimmers that shines holographic under the light! I didnt manage to capture the holographic on the nails, but look at the bottle! A little bit of the holographic shimmer can be seen.
Nail art is stamped using a few monster bundle plates. Plate numbers are BM-224, BM-222, BM-209. No thumb pic cos I sort of screwed up on the thumb. 
Hope you enjoyed your Halloween this year!

Polish Alley is now online!

Just a little side track from my 31 days challenge, this post is about Polish Alley! My nail polish friend Kim & I have decided to start a small little blogshop (http://polishalley.wordpress.com) to sell nail polishes in Singapore at affordable prices! We are both crazy nail polish addicts and this would really be fun!

Currently we have some Kleancolor, Milani & LA Color Nail Art deco instocks, and we are also hosting sprees for OPI and China Glaze metal crackles capping at 30 bottles. We will also close the sprees at the end of every month as we want our customers to get their polishes asap and dont want to organize sprees that takes forever to close! 

We had been preparing this for quite some time and I’m really happy that it’s finally launched! Our polishes are all priced at affordable prices and we offer free normal postage for all items! Check us out http://polishalley.wordpress.com!

I have spent some time in designing the website, let me know if you like it! 

**BTW there isnt any new manicure post because I’m still wearing my metallic nails. I thought I wont like the manicure as much as it’s pretty common and nothing special, but I was wrong! I went to apply another thick coat of top coat after I posted the post below and I really really loved it! I totally cant bear to remove it & simply love staring at it under the light!
