It was my sister's birthday earlier this month. I miss her a lot because she lives very far away from me and we don't get to see each other very often. I think the last time I saw her in person was 2 years ago!

She's been following my website and sending me emails with comments on which nail colour she likes best. *hint**hint* So this year, I've decided to send her a set of nails for her birthday.

Nail Polish Used: OPI - Royal Rajah Ruby


 To get the correct nail tip size for my sister, I've asked her to use a soft measuring tape to measure the width of her nail bed. I didn't realise she's got such a small nail bed! 



 
 

 

 

By the way, I've just bought a new table lamp! It's super sleek and bright. Totally in love with it hehe :)

Thank you Danielle. My sister told me that she really like them. Just so happens she's got 2 weddings to attend. She'll put those nails to good use :). Yes I got your *hint* too hehe. Let me know if you need a set done. I'll do it for gladly ;). It's gradually getting cooler yay! I welcome cooler days minus the storm. What we had on Monday was so scary. I was shopping on Friday and saw a sales lady with a huge bruise on her arm. That's from getting hit by the hail! I also saw many cars badly damaged. I am so glad I had the day off. If not my car would have been damaged from parking at the park n ride.

Hi Jin, Hope you are well! Enjoying the cooler weather? I've been envying your nail display (top two pictures). Where did you buy them from? My husband and I also found a air-brush kit in Bunnings but the compressors are HUGE. Do you know where to get small compressors? My husband wants it to paint his Hulk models and I want to have a go at airbrushing on false nails ;)

Hey Danielle, I have been well. Just a little but tired today because I had a major insomia problem the last couple if days. I've just completed a new set of nails on Monday which was quite a major project. I've not had time to take photos of it under natural lights. I don't have time in the mornings and it's dark by the time I reach home.

What a coincidence, I am also looking around for an air brush. I've been saving up for either this or an electric nail drill. They are so expensive! As for the air brush, I've been mainly looking at online nail supplier shops, but have not found a good one yet. Will let you know when I do so. The compressors I found do look pretty big as well. They look like boxes and would take up 1/4 of my small table!

Have a look at this link http://www.airbasemakeup.com/products.php?id=16
I've been wanting to try this airbase make up. The home air brush and compressor set they sell looks very small and cute. I am not sure if it can be used as a nail air brush or not?

Haha just realised this morning that I have not answered all your questions. The nail display is actually not a 'display'. The are actually tiny hooks attached to a board. I got them from Bunnings. I used blue tag to attach the nail tips on the hooks. I totally love the weather!

Hi Jin

Hope you are sleeping well now and I'll look forward to your post when you are able to take pictures of your next set of nails!

Thank you for your help! I'll have a look at Bunnings for them and I'll definitely check out that website too! Thanks so much for answering me! Hope you are having a lovely long weekend!!

xx
