Hello 2014!

Hi guys!!

I am back.
Yes, it's a little late for a 'hello 2014' post, seeing that we're almost a week into the new year. But I always think better late than never! :p
It feels like forever since I've done an actual nail art, I felt like I'm making my first nail art post. No worries though, I'll warm up to it and get my creative juice running again.
Today I had no specific idea of what I wanted to do, only picked the colors I want to use. Then I decided to try and practice my free hand roses again. I'm kind of terrible in free handed floral, so it's definitely something I need to improve this year.

I used China Glaze Pinkie Promise as the base, and made a sponged gradient on my middle & ring nails with  China Glaze Gothic Lolita. I used the same color for the roses, and used CG Pinkie Promise and OPI Funky Dunkey for the swirls inside the roses. The leaves were made with Zoya Josie & OPI Jade Is The New Black
I stamped a butterfly from Pueen 39 using Color Club Harp On It & Over The Moon. I left my thumb plain because I really like Pinkie Promise on its own. Everything was sealed perfectly with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat.

If you're following me on instagram, I'm still unable to post anything because of my phone issue. I have a galaxy tab, the first one, but I haven't used it in ages and I'm android challenged. Still can't figure out how to update the software so it can support instagram.
Bye now! :)
