I've just completed a new set of wedding nails for a friend's wedding in Malaysia. For the first time, my nail art is flying international to another country!

It took me 2 days to complete this as I wanted to make sure the paint is totally dry before proceeding with the 3D acrylic flowers. I've used 4 coats of OPI's Isn't It Romantic, as it looks quite sheer even after 3 coats.


What a pretty colour!


Added some sparkles...



Looks like it's been sugar coated :)


Added 3D Acrylic Flowers



Added pink and white pearls and silver bullions + lots of gel and top coat. Isn't it shiny?


 

 

 
Ready To Fly to Malaysia!

Wow, those are GORGEOUS! Really amazing work; I love this set! My sister wants me to send her a nail set, but I don't know what size nails to use for her.

Hi Asami, thank you so much! Luckily my friend came over to Perth last year and I managed to pick out the nail tips that fit her. You can ask your sister to use a soft measuring tape and wrap it around her fingers. Ask her to take down the width of each nail. That way you can have a rough idea what size nails to get her.

This is so gorgeous! Really fantastic job, your friend is going to have awesome nails for her wedding!

Thank you Kae! It took me quite a while to decide what colour combination to use for this set of nails. You should see my working paper. It's filled with different types of pink nail polish and sparkles! I like to draw on paper before I start on the nails.

Hi jo.frougal, thank you for following my blog! The bride told me she's kept the nail tips after the wedding and it's still in good condition. Thank you for the nice comments. It makes me really happy to be involved in such a happy occation!
