Day 22: Inspired by a Song

I was thinking of what will I do for this challenge when my father, who is a karaoke addict, sung one of his favorite song by Barry Manilow which is "I write the songs". So I decided to create a simple musical symbols design that musicians first do with every music they make. It all begin in a music sheet.

Day 15: Delicate Nails

I have been thinking what would I do in this challenge. I surf the net and peek into what others have done in their Delicate nails and I they used stamping as their method and sadly, I'm bad at stamping so I have come up with this, a simple french tip nails with gold accent and added a flower to style. :)

Day 14: Flower Nails

I was thinking of what medium will I use to do this design. I was thinking of stamping and glittery accent. But I stumbled upon my nail stickers before I get my hands on my stamping plates and realized that I haven't had any post or design using stickers. So I decided that I'll be using this stickers to my Day 14: Flower Nails challenge.

Day 8: Metallic Nails

Today will be a quickpost. This is my 8th day of the nail art challenge and it features Metallic Nails.

I was wondering what polish would I used to this challenge when I stumbled upon Caronia's Facebook page and saw their profile picture was their Bright Nights Collection and I remembered my Gold Rush. So I then applied my base coat and noticed that I haven't tried french nails in this challenge. So I applied the Gold Rush in a slanting style and added a black stripe to add dimension in the design.

Day 5: Blue Nails

♫♬When I'm feeling blue all I have to do is take a look at you..♫♬ Hi ladies! I hope you're not feeling blue today. But let me share something blue today because it's day 5: Blue Nails!!  Yay!

Blue is one of my favorite colors. I like its calming aura and cooling effect to my eyes. I even wear a blue gown on my debut. :) Oh those were the days. Let me share to you what I have found online about blue.

According to a site, blue is a natural color, from the blue of the sky, blue is a universal color. The cool, calming effect of blue makes time pass more quickly and it can help you sleep. Blue is a good color for bedrooms. However, too much blue could dampen spirits.

Put some blue in your life when you want:
  • calm and relaxation to counteract chaos or agitation
  • to open the flow of communication
  • to broaden your perspective in learning new information
  • solitude and peace

Day 4: Green Nails

This is the 4th day of my challenge and I must say, it really is a challenge to think and decide what style will I offer you everyday in the next days.

This day will be a Green Day Polish.

Let's talk Green, Wikipedia says the word green is closely related to the Old English verb growan, "to grow". It is used to describe plants or the ocean. Sometimes it can also describe someone who is inexperienced, jealous, or sick. In the United States of America, green is a slang term for money, among other things. Several colloquialisms have derived from these meanings, such as "green around the gills", a phrase used to describe a person who looks ill.

Put some green in your life when you want:
  • a new state of balance
  • feel a need for change or growth
  • freedom to pursue new ideas
  • protection from fears and anxieties connected with the demands of others

Day 3: Yellow Nails

The 3rd day challenge is all about Yellow Nails. And this is not about nail discoloration. :) 

According to a site, yellow is the most visible color, it is also the most attention-getting color. It is often described as cheery and warm. Yellow can also create feelings of frustration and anger. While it is considered a cheerful color, people are more likely to lose their tempers in yellow rooms and babies tend to cry more in yellow rooms.It's a relief that my room is in blue and white.. :))

Day 2: Orange Nails

Now we are  on to the second day of the challenge and today is Orange Nails! 

According to Wikipedia, the colour orange is named after the appearance of the ripe orange fruit.Before this word was introduced to the English-speaking world, the colour was referred to as ġeolurēad (yellow-red).

From Cure.com, Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange. It has been told that if a change of any kind is need in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights. Hmmm..sounds like a plan.

31-Day Nail Art Challenge

Since today is the last day of the month and tomorrow is a brand new start, I will be challenging myself with the 31-Day Nail Art Challenge. Perfect because the month of March has 31 days. Wheeww.. I hope I could do it.

I will be using all the available resources around me, local polishes^_^, stamps and acrylics.

My fellow nail art enthusiast did this with flying colors in the end. I hope I get the right inspiration in doing this. I'm a bit excited yet nervous to finish this and pile the images in one post. I think, from today and in the next 31 days, you will be reading a post or two from me. I hope you follow my journey.

Nail Art: The Travel Teller

Hello.. This time I am showing you the design I made for my sister. She is a nurse and currently reviewing for her IELTS Examination on May. She is staying at our house in Davao City. 
The design was for her blogger friend Olan. He is the author of a travel blog called The Travel Teller that showcases the most wonderful spots in our beloved country, the Philippines. His latest adventure was in Ilocos, a place me myself would love to visit. Click the link and you will surely see that it really is More Fun in the Philippines. ;)
The nail design was inspired by Olan's T-Shirt design. Just a simple footsteps design on the pinky, middle and index finger. Then the words I ♥ TRAVEL TELLER on the thumb and BE OLANIZE on the ring finger.

Family Day with my Little Girl

Hi! How are you today?  This post is about our Family Day Celebration last Saturday at my daughter's school. It was a perfect timing for me to spend quality time with my daughter because I was busy the past few weeks with my work and haven't had a bonding time with her in a while.
We left home at 8am to participate in the motorcade but to our surprise, the program is about to start when we arrive and the motorcade was over. Oh my! (Next time I'll ask for a Programme a day before!) So Jaja(my child) hurried to go back stage for they will sing the National Anthem.
This is our Official T-Shirt for the Grade One Team.
