followthatway Shortened my nails and did a quick fix with @polishedbykpt's "Underneath The Milky Way" This color went on like a dream and it's so different from any other polishes I own! I love how the holo is so scattered so that it doesn't overpower the dark royal purple shade and yet the entire combination just sparkles like a gem I'm wearing this on both hands to see how long it will last on me Don't forget, you can get this polish from @beautysofly! \\ I now have 3 more available slots for my Chinese New Year nail appointments (on the 12th Feb and 17th Feb). Student pricing and discount is now available. Please email me (address in profile) if you're interested! Open in Singapore only! That's all for tonight! Thank You for Reading! 3d

followthatway It's time for another round of Q&A! The last time I did this was 24 weeks ago wow anyway, ask me your burning questions about anything, from drawing florals to watching too many tv shows I've been getting a ton of questions here and there so it'll be much easier if I can answer them here lalala haha! As usual, I will try my very very very best to answer each and every one honestly and to the best of my ability! (or if you have nothing to ask, just smile and let me pretend that I'm talking to myself ) Thank You for Reading! 2w
  •   jas_shunyii Can I use gel colour to draw the floral ? Never try it before (: 2d
  •   breesloves Where a the best Pl lace to buy nail polish that works best with water marbling? 2d
  •   tiahniam What kind of base coat and top coat do you use? The ones I use isn't great @followthatway 2d
  •   followthatway @jas_shunyii I have not tried that yet as well! 23h
  •   followthatway @breesloves a nailpolish store 23h
  •   followthatway @tiahniam @glistenandglow1 top coat and Seche Vite base coat 23h
  •   tiahniam Thank you! Lol I'm sorry I didn't realize that you've been asked that question A LOT. I usually look through all the comments but I've been wanting to ask cause not a lot of great nail artists would answer that cause I used to do nails before and some reason my nails wouldn't peel or chip as easy. Now I'm getting back into it it does that a lot but I did read one question and the tip you said was something about thinner or one coat of each polish and it makes sense lol. Thank you again! 18h
  •   tiahniam Ooh and one more thing lol (sorry) is it any acrylic paint you can use like say from a Walmart or something? And would it be better to draw with acrylic paint or nail polish? I've seen that you said to use foil to slow down the drying time but I've always wanted to do floral but it gets so hard lol. I see that you say you usually mostly use acrylic. @followthatway thank you 18h

followthatway You requested, I deliver... Yet another 15 seconds video process for florals using nail polish! The light pink base is @mintpolishhq's "I Do". For the roses, I used @opi_products's "Manicurist of Seville", @essiepolish's "Beach Party" and @orlynails's "White Out". I used @stylishnailartshop's Pure Color Glamour for the brush. // on a Fall Out Boy craze as usual because there's nothing to not love about them. This song is "The Kids Aren't Alright". You need to listen. Okay that's all for tonight! Thank you for reading and have a lovely day ahead! 2w

followthatway Good Morning! First day of the new semester here (totes not prepared) but of course I'm always prepared to do floral/rose nails (oh the priorities HAH) The light pink base is @mintpolishhq's "I Do". Also, get ready for this: the roses are done purely with nail polishes (except for the leaves)!!! I used @opi_products's "Manicurist of Seville", an Essie polish that I momentarily forgot the name of, and @orlynails's "White Out" for the roses. (This is just to show that you can achieve a rather similar effect for roses if you decide to use nail polish rather than acrylic paint!) ️ Okay that's all for now! Let me know if you want to see a video process for this because I know I post way too many floral videos As usual, Thank You so much for Reading, and have a lovely week ahead! 2w

followthatway It's 31st December 2014 here and I cannot believe this is my last post for 2014! The year has gone by like a whiz! What better way to finish 2014 with a good old set of floral nails that I've grown to love and have a true passion for this year? For the light pink base, I used @opi_products's "I Theodora You". I used @stylishnailartshop's Pure Color Glamour brush with acrylic paint for the florals. Lovely rose gold chevron ring is from @armcandy_fashion. ️ And I'm holding @yslbeauty rouge volupte in no. 3 oh, don't forget to tell me what you'd like to see more from me in 2015! I've already got so many nail designs planned (yes they're not all just florals )! See you all in 2015! Once again, have a Wonderful day ahead and Thank You for Reading! 4w

followthatway PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT CONTENT! Hey everybody! My Bangkok trip over the weekend was amazing and filled with darn good food! Anyway, I was really reluctant to post this post (because of its sheer, I emphasise, sheer use of the word "a$$hole" and I know I have younger followers here so I try my very best but I contemplated for a while and I still decided to share this because you gotta admit, it totally spices up a simple set of black&white nails (plus I'm really happy with this design, and if I'm happy, I'm good to go!) the base design is inspired by @pshiiit_polish, and for the water nail decals, they were kindly sent to me by @lavitaebella1986, and they specialize in tons of vintage nail decals. I love how easy it was for me to just smack these little thingies on and flaunt them to practically everyone in my vicinity HAHA! The bat ring (which you can't really see in this shot but I'll post another one later) is from @lightinthebox!
I'm so sorry for the lack of videos lately. Somehow all the software around me just keeps crashing and I need to figure it out so thank you for your patience and thank YOU for READING this really long caption

followthatway It's the morning and I survived a night without sleep with my crazy friends watching the VS Fashion Show 2013&2014 + many many episodes of Big Bang Theory So before Christmas actually comes in 2 days' time, here's a really christmassy design using tons of glitter and stamping plates (yes I used them I need an award hahaha)! I used @madam_glam's "Moonlight" as my emerald forest green base then topped it with @daily_charme's "Eleuthera". Then I used @bornprettystore's stamping plate in W-22 and Bundle Monster's BM-319 for the snowflakes! Finished with @glistenandglow1's HK Girl top coat and it's all done! The lovely daisy ring is from @blackandwhiteboutique! Wow okay this was long but I hope you really like this as I really am quite proud of myself for using stamps (I'm usually a spectacular failure at that hahaha!) thank you all so much for reading! Always sending y'all much love and joy! 1mon
