Halloween Nails That Are Not Scary

Halloween used to be one of my favorite time of the year because you got to dress up in crazy costumes with creepy makeup and no one would bat an eyelid. But as I got older and now that I have a 3 year old that practically sucks the life out of me. I just simply do not have that energy and enthusiasm left to partake in this once much relished tradition.

However, I’ve found a way that I could still continue to celebrate Halloween in my own way other than decorating the front door with the Halloween supplies I’d gotten from Dasio. Just check out these Halloween nails which I had found online while looking for some inspiration.

Liliya Hudyakova showed us how closely related art and fashion are when she made sketches of nature into dresses. One of the dresses which caught my eye was the one inspired by a pinkish purplish sunset at a beach.

[Gel Mani/Pedi Session Giveaway] Check Out My Chinese New Year Nails by Hausfernails

My previous sheep nails were melting away due to me slaving over the bouquets for Love U Beary Much and knowing that they probably won’t look good on Chinese New Year, I made another appointment with my trusty mobile manicurist, Ferlyn of Hausfernails. I also had a pampering nail mask treatment added to the usual gel manicure. Honestly, I must be living under a rock because I didn’t know that you even had masks for nails!

So here’s what happened. As you can see, my nails looked dry and brittle after the gel nail polish removal. I have this tendency to break my nails when they grow too long too :( Continue reading

[Review] Check Out My Whimsical Cute Nail Art By Mobile Manicurist – Hausfernails

If you are a busy person, like me, who can never seem to find the time to head down to a nail salon to get your nails done, then you are in luck. Have you ever heard of mobile manicurists in Singapore? Well, I’ve only heard of home-based manicurists but not of mobile ones. Besides, most nail salons in Singapore do not even make home visits. So imagine my delight when Hausfernails contacted me and offered to do a set of gel manicure with nail art for me.

Nothing beats having your nails done in the comforts of your own home and best of all, you pay a lower rate as compared to having them done in a nail salon. I felt like a Queen for the day!

To make it work, you would need a table that is near to a power socket for the nail lamp. I used a foldable table that measures 90 x 60cm. It was a perfect size for the whole setting.
