One Love Nails By Aini 

OneLoveNails by Aini
I’m really happy for Aini who have finally opened her very own nail salon! I first knew Aini about three years ago when I was having my nails sponsored at her old place. She’s really good and skillful at her nail art designs that I don’t really do nail art outside unless it’s her. It is with the support of her regular customers that she took the first step of having her own place!  She’s like a friend to me and I’m so glad to see her fulfilling her dream.


Loving her cosy little space at Orchard Plaza. It feels just like home and I love the fact that she have curtains on so that customers can have privacy while doing nails. Plus she mainly go by appointments only so you won’t get people walking by and staring into the shop while you do your nails. And you can always enjoy a movie while getting your nails done! I stayed till the movie ended even though my nails are done way before. Haha. Her place is that cosy!

Gave her a color scheme and told her she can go free style. Aini knows the kind of nails I like and I love the outcome! Didn’t do extensions this time round as it’s not advisable to have long nails while doing makeup for others. Did I also mention that her rates are super affordable?

Nail Paint Design $25

3D Nail Art Design $45

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!

NOTW: Nail Foil Stickers

20130905-135637.jpg
Here’s my nails of the week! Got these nail foil stickers from *Scape flea at just $2! They were going at 3 for $5. So it’s less than $2! And a free nail file with purchase of 3 or more! Cheap thrill!!

20130905-135629.jpg
They are pretty easy to apply. You just have to find a size closest to your nail, stick it on as accurately as possible to your nail bed with the rounded side downward close to your cuticles. Then fold down excess and file off. You can choose to seal it off with a top coat so that it last longer.

I didn’t and by day 2, the stickers are peeling off. So best to sealed it up with top coat.

I won’t say they are lasting, maybe max 3-4 days depending on what you do with your hands. But good enough for something that’s $2. Will be great for the weekend if your work does not allow you to have fanciful nails!

XOXO,

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
