After much hair pulling, I've finally managed to upload and modify a new blog template. It still needs a little more final adjustments but I do like the end result. Hope you'll like it too.

As previously mentioned I was meant to continue with my wedding theme, however I was so tired of light pastel colours, therefore I've decided to try a new technique.

I don't know what's the official name of this technique but I'll call it the Water Swirl Technique for now. I've seen this done several times before but have not try it personally. You'll have to use 2 different nail colours and drop them in one after another into a container of water. Wait for each colour to spread out before dropping the next colour. Use an orange stick to swirl the colour into your desired pattern and dip your finger nails flat down onto the surface of the water. Do this slowly or else you'll end up with bubbles. With your finger still submerged in the water, use the orange stick and remove any remaining nail polish floating on the surface of the water. Slowly lift your finger out of the water and allow to dry slightly. Use a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover to clean up nail colours around your finger. Viola, you'll end up with some very interesting swirly patterens! I was up till 4 am doing this. It's fun but very messy at the same time. Not to mention the amount of nail polish wasted. However, I do like the look of it.
