Nail Art By Couture Nails

Many of you might have seen my nails designed by Aini from Couture Nails on instagram. I’m going to go through the designs I’ve done in for June!

20140708-134418-49458396.jpg The first design have a dark tone to it, a more goth feel which I love. The colors that are used are mainly black, red, white and gold. It’s a pretty classy set.

20140708-134417-49457675.jpg I like how Aini alternate the colors on both hands and if you realized, the checkered design on both hands are different too. Nail stickers and bling are also used in this set to glam up the whole design!

20140708-134420-49460605.jpg Always enjoy my pedicure session at Couture as they play movies at the sofa area. Different movie each week! I opted for a simple one color for my toes and added a ribbon on both big toes!

20140708-134419-49459047.jpgThe second set of nails I did in June are Little Twin Star Inspired! Don’t you love the color palette used in this set? The main color on both hands are different, with the same nail art.

20140708-134418-49458607.jpg Check out the hand drawn Kiki and Lala by Aini! So adorable! This is also why the main color of each hand is different, it follows the hair color of the character!

20140708-134418-49458753.jpg I really love how sweet this set is and I’ve gotten many comments on them! Notice that the blings on my ring fingers are star shaped?

20140708-134540-49540632.jpg Here’s a set of new nail art I noticed on my most recent visit! Crayon Shin chan and friends! Drawn by Aini too! If you love cartoon characters and wants them on your nails, Aini is the manicurist to look for! Of course, it will be good to give her a graphic reference.

They have a wide variety of normal nails and gelish colours!


Over at Couture Nails, they take great care in hygiene. For each new customer, they will use newly sanitized tools. Tools are stored in a special sterilized pouch after being sanitized. I am very sure they are the first nail salon that is having this practice.

Couture Nails is also my new sponsor for Manicure and Pedicure services. The nail artist there are capable to reproduce almost all designs requested as long as they have the supplies. I strongly recommend my nail artist, Aini who was also my previous manicurist. 🙂

Here’s the designs that she did for me on my first visit! Dotted floral matched with hot pink polish on the toes. toesfloral

I did acrylic extensions on my nails as they were quite short, followed by gelish nail art. I showed her a design and gave her the free reign to improvise the design. And this is the outcome which I really love. There’s the flowers I wanted, with my favourite pastel colours and there’s also bling and ribbons!

National Day Nails by Beauty Recipe

Hi all!! Jessie kindly sponsored me for a manicure plus pedicure session at her lovely nail salon, The Beauty Recipe. So I gladly went to get myself pampered. Hee!

National Day is arriving soon and so Jessie had the idea of painting the flag on the finger nails!


Now I’ve the flag on my fingers, I’m all ready to celebrate National Day! Hee!



I was also shown a really delicate design that Jessie intend to have it drawn on my toes and I was skeptical cause my toe nails are really ugly and short that I normally just ignore them. 😛

I must say I was wow-ed by the end results! The manicurist Jessie had at her salon was indeed skillful! Look at my toes!


You can see that it’s really short but she managed to draw out the delicate designs!


Check out how tiny my other toe nails are! But she still managed to draw a flower on each! My toes have never been so nice before! Haha!

Nails by Envy: Kuroi Neko

Did kawaii nails at Envy this time round! Black cat on a sweet pink best!

I was surfing the net one day and spotted this design so I screen shot it on my iphone reminding myself to do this when I head to Envy next time. You know all not every manicurist can create the design you want? But Envy do not disappoint!

Aini, my manicurist will always draw what I want and even modify the design to be better! The wordings are not included in the original design I showed her! The other hand says “Kitty Cat” instead of “Meow”. XD
