|It has definitely been a while since I have written in this blog!I am back with a vengeance because I have caught the nailart bug – if you have been following my Instagram account you will notice A LOT of nail art (and the occasional dog photo interspersed in my pictures).Today, I wanted to share with you my Angry Birds + Christmas + Snow nail art design. This is the first official appearance of my “Cinderella Hand”!I am right handed, and my left hand desperately lacks the fine motor skills and dexterity for drawing on such a tiny canvas using nail polish. So, I used a toothpick to draw the birds onto a Ziplock bag. I let the designs dry overnight and then peeled each bird off the bag and placed it onto my nails. I can show you a tutorial if anyone is interested in seeing that process in action (or if you got confused by my explanation).
I initially started out with just the birds on different coloured backgrounds, but because I attended a “friendsgiving” dinner and washed almost all of the dishes we used during the cooking/preparation process, my nails had some major tip wear. I decided to add some red santa hats and snow!
I have entered this design into the 2013 Holiday Nail Art Challenge hosted by
You can vote for me for the Week 1 Challenge, which has many talented nail bloggers showcasing designs that they drew for the Snow Theme.

今天，我想與大家分享我最近的設計之一… 憤怒鳥 + 聖誕節 ＋ 下雪! 我慣用手是我的右手， 但是我讓我的非慣用手為榜樣因為我用一個簡單的方法來畫出憤怒鳥的圖案。我下次可以示範給大家看！

|I was watching the video on YouTube (check out cutepolish’s YouTube Channel for fun designs!) and thought that I would give her #floraldoodle design a try.It was a little difficult to get the “doodles” to be as neat as hers and my sponging technique leaves a lot to be desired! I guess practice makes perfect… do you attempt nail art designs you find online? Or do you leave that to the “professionals”?I used Butter London “Fiver” as the base colour, as well as “Primrose Hill Picnic”, “Cheeky Chops” and “Jaffa” as the sponging colours. I really like the colour range offered by Butter London and the name/concept behind each of the polishes.
These polishes can get a bit expensive though… at $15.00USD a pop PLUS shipping and handling. I highly advise that you go to a store to see nail polish in person before you buy if at all possible… the cute names and swatches online may sway you to purchase a polish that you *thought* you wanted… but perhaps won’t impress you all that much once you open that long anticipated package.
You can check out the Butter London website for more details.
|我在YouTube上看到 cutepolish 的花花美甲設計。 我本來想會很簡單，但是出來的樣子有點不一樣…下一次，我會盡量更整齊的搽指甲油的！
