Non Dominant Hand Nail Art: Angry Birds during Christmas

Non Dominant Hand Nail Art: Angry Birds during a White Christmas

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

www.nailpolishcanada.com

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.

不好意思! 我一段時間沒有公佈在這個博客上…希望你們可以原諒我!我最近生病了- 這是一個非常可怕的病,因為我浪費了很多時間支持這一個問題!bù hǎo yì si! wǒ yī duàn shí jiān méi yǒu gōng bù zài zhè ge bó kè shàng… xī wàng nǐ men kě yǐ yuán liàng wǒ! wǒ zuì jìn shēng bìng le – zhè shì yī gè fēi cháng kě pà de bìng, yīn wèi wǒ làng fèi le hěn duō shí jiān zhī chí zhè yī ge wèn tí!你有猜到我的病是什麼嗎?我不停的畫美甲design在我的指甲上!如果你們正在使用Instagram, 快加入我的帳戶:nǐ yǒu cāi dào wǒ de bìng shì shén me ma? wǒ bù tíng de huà měi jiǎ design zài wǒ de zhǐ jiǎ shàng! rú guǒ nǐ men zhèng zài shǐ yòng Instagram, kuài jiā rù wǒ de zhàng hù:www.instagram.com/themisspw

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!

Holographic Polka Dots

DSC04535 DSC04538

This shows my (lack of) left hand manicuring skills using Orly’s “Iron Butterfly” from their Metal Chic Collection.The consistency of this polish is pretty smooth, but as with all special effect polishes, it dried very quickly – leaving little time for me to maneuver the brush and get a clean application. I will need to practice how to make the left hand manicure cleaner with more practice. Overall, the pigmentation is really good for this polish, and it has beautiful staying power!I was able to add Color Club’s “Miss Bliss” from the new 2013 Halo Hues collection about five minutes after applying Iron Butterfly.

If you don’t have the Color Club Halo Hues… GO GET THEM!!! I have been looking at these online from Enospring – this is a great website and they have the best price for Color Club Halo Hues and the shipping is super fast to any American State!).

So far, I have gotten my hands on Miss Bliss, Cherubic and Cosmic Fate. I will have Harp On It and Eternal Beauty coming soon, but I want them ALLLLL!!!

這是我第一次使用ORLY牌子的 “磨砂” 或 “麂皮” 的指甲油。我覺得還蠻好用的,但是這種指甲油會很快就乾所以比較不容易均勻塗在指甲上。

zhè shì wǒ dì yī cì shǐ yòng ORLY pái zi de”mó shā” huò “jǐ pí” de zhǐ jiǎ yóu. wǒ jué de hái mán hǎo yòng de, dànshì zhè zhǒng zhǐ jiǎ yóu huì hěn kuài jiù gān suǒyǐ bǐ jiào bù  róng yì jūn yún tú zài zhǐ jiǎ shàng.

我目前最最最愛的指甲油是 “Holographic” 效果 (Google Translate跟我說這個holographic effect 是 “全息” 但是我不能確定對不對…”)。Color Club的 2012 和 2013 年 的 “Halo Hues” 彙集是市場上最好的! 如果你有出國一定要找這個牌子的指甲油!我是在 Enospring 買的,讓後請我認識的人幫我帶回來。

wǒ mù qián zuì zuì zuì ‘ài de zhǐ jiǎ yóu shì “Holographic” xiào guǒ (Google Translate gēn wǒ shuō zhè ge holographic effect shì “quán xí” dàn shì wǒ bù néng què dìng duì bù duì…”). Color Club de 2012 hé 2013 nián de”Halo Hues” huì jí shì shì chǎng shàng zuì hǎo de! rú guǒ nǐ yǒu chū guó yī dìng yào zhǎo zhè ge pái zi de zhǐ jiǎ yóu!

Hand Placed Glitter

Angry Bird

Orly “Au Champagne” with hand placed red hexagonal glitter and Sephora Brand Top Coat x 2 (or x3)

This manicure was inspired by some photos I saw online of some really amazing work. One blog you can check out is http://www.polishallthenails.com – she has so much patience and creativity! (Click on the “Hand Placed Glitter” label on the right sidebar to see all of her gorgeous hand-placed glitter  work documented online!).I’ve also been obsessed with Nail Art via Pinterest, and a board that is full of really beautiful hand placed glitter nail art can be found at http://pinterest.com/aretheydryyet/manis-2-try-glitter-placement/

This type of manicure using large glitter pieces is *really* hard to remove and time consuming, but the results are pretty cool. If you’d like to see a tutorial let me know!

(All products were purchased by me)

 

這是一個很費時間的設計… 但是我覺得最終結果還滿好看的!我沒想到可以把便宜的亮片放在指甲上,導致一個有趣的設計.zhè shì yīgè hěn fèi shí jiān de shè jì… dàn shì wǒ jué de zuì zhōng jié guǒ hái mǎn hǎo kàn de! Wǒ méi xiǎng dào kěyǐ bǎ pián yi de liàng piàn fàng zài zhǐ jiǎ shàng, dǎo zhì yī gè yǒu qù de shè jì.
