Domo-Kun pocket mirror

Here is a pocket mirror featuring Domo-Kun. Yes, I know I have a lot of posts about him but he is just too cute!

I know the pictures don't really capture the process it took into making this, but I "got so in to it" while I was making it at times, that I would forget to take pictures.

Valentines' Day Inspired Manicure

This is manicure I did for Valentines' day. I know the integrity of the manicure is bit worn out as I had been wearing them for a week before I took this photo. It is something simple and not too complicated.

I used a swatch from OPI's Hong Kong collection, Meet Me on the Star Ferry. It is a purple shimmer, absolutely stunning. Not to mention my favorite as well! I applied two layers on to the tips for optimum color. Then I applied another two coats from Essie's Cool Lots. It is an extremely sheer peach nude color.

I usually free hand the designs on my nails but I was feeling quite lazy that day. Since my sister is into scrap booking, I took one of her heart shaped paper stampers and punched out a small heart. The paper I used was somewhat thick and sturdy so I applied some water to soften it. While my nails were still wet from the Cool Lots coat, I applied the heart punch out. As it dried, I applied top coat and especially on the thumb to reinforce the heart.

Thanks to my muse, Asami for inspiring this design! :)

Officially Established

Yes, I painstakingly (not really) moved all my blog posts from wordpress to my new blog here. Not like I had a lot of posts to begin with anyway!

Please be aware, that it's still in the works, but I'm through with the anticipation because I want to start posting some of the random crap I've been working on and doing. Class is about to start in 10 minutes so I have to keep this post short.
