NOTD: Flowers with Rimmel Purple Polish

by xin on November 2, 2009

Hello everyone! 😀 I hope all had a great weekend 🙂

I was back in hometown for dad’s birthday, all of us (mom, 2 sisters, cousin + me) all bought him a shirt each. LOL. Imagine his excitement! He loves to dress up nicely, and I can assure that his clothes are probably triple of mine.

Let’s see my last creation of NOTD 🙂

Rimmel purple polish (which claims to dry in 60 seconds). But to dry COMPLETELY, it took about 2 mins with one coating. Love the purple right? 😀

4 dots

Now, plain nails look a  little boring.

Let’s add some flower to it. I used a dotting tool and dip into pink polish and dot on my nail.

one hand

Then, use a needle to create the petal. Nikki is really good at this!


I continued to draw one more flower and took the gold glitters polish to dab along the nail.

Here’s is the complete hand!

You can actually draw the amount of flowers according to your preference or the size of your nailbed. See my pinky? My hand suddenly got too rough and dropped a huge dot on the nail. Hence the huge flower.  But it’s ok 🙂

If any of you has any suggestions for nail art for me, please enlighten 🙂

haha, today I learn how to make nicer flower petals. I didn’t know we can use the needle to make that pattern. Going to dot all my nails tonight. hehe.

oh so pretty! I don’t really like Rimmel nail polish though. I have one and it dries way too fast! makes the application or gritty and chunky since i’m such a noob :p
