I’m actually not so good in painting my own nails so I was a little worried going to a nail event. But then, I must pick up the skill sooner or later right? So just treat this as a nail class la XD
|All the girls got so excited seeing so many nail colors!|
|From plain colors to neon color and bling bling, which is your favorite?|
Here’s a fun fact about China Glaze: Many people thought that China Glaze originated from China because of its name but it’s not! The reason why ‘China’ is in the brand name is because their nail lacquers contain China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish. So where does China Glaze originate from? China Glaze was actually founded in the U.S.A. 13 years ago.

In par with the technology development, China Glaze has came up with a revolutionary app called “China Glaze” which generates nail lacquer suggestions for you to match the color of your outfit. All you need to do is snap a photo of your outfit and the app will intelligently let you know which China Glaze nail lacquers are suitable to match your outfit! So handy! This app is currently available for iOS and Android phones.
Now, the main purpose of this nail soiree is to learn how to produce Ombre Nail Art. YAY! To be honest, I’ve never tried it even in nail salon before.

Step 1: File your nails and remove cuticles.

Step 2: Remove any trace of nail polish using Nail Polish Remover by Corine De Farme. Even if your nails are clean, you must also use nail polish remover to remove excess oil from your nails.
Step 3: Apply a coat of Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat to prevent nail lacquer pigments from staining your nail beds and ensure the color doesn’t chip so soon.
Step 4: Apply a coat of pearl nail lacquer onto nails as base color.
Step 5: You will need to cut out a piece of sponge; it can be bathroom sponge, foundation sponge, dish washing sponge (experience with different sponges to create unique texture). Pick 3 nail colors and apply them in streaks onto the sponge. Be more generous on the nail colors because you’ll need a lot for the color to transfer onto your nails.
|Step 5: Pick 3 nail colors and apply them in streaks onto the sponge|
Step 6: Press the sponge firmly onto your nails and move the sponge a little to the left and right for the color to be transferred to your nails evenly.

|I have a soft spot for bling bling stuff so I added Glistening Snow|
on the top part of my nails. They can cover imperfections too!
|Jeng jeng! Not bad for a first timer kan?|
I personally prefer the left hand one because the color looks more matching.
Well, I’ve never thought that my group’s nail art will the contest too! What a surprise! I guess hard selling helps cos we kept saying ours are the best and we’ll sure win LOL!! There’s some psychology tactic applied. Geddit? :p
