WnW Megalast 'I Red a Good Book' with Nail Art

This is just a quick post of free-handed nail art I did using 'I Red a Good Book' by WnW as a base. The swirls and dots were done with black and white acrylic paint respectively. I added some silver glitter from a nail art pen.
Enjoy :)

Week 21: Fruit Manicure

Juicy manicure ahead!
There is one thing I love about spring/summer and that is having delicious, ripe, and juicy fruits available locally! This manicure is a fruity one as you can see and I ventured using a small brush, acrylic paints and a bit of patience. I was proud enough when my mom thought I had used stickers! Oh, the base color is I Need a Refresh-Mint by WnW Megalast.
Una de las cosas que más disfruto de la temporada primavera/verano es tener disponibilidad de diferentes frutas de acuerdo a la temporada! Como pueden darse cuenta, las uñas de hoy son protagonizadas por frutas. Me dí la tarea de usar un pincel pequeño, pinturas acrílicas y un poco de paciencia. Me bastó cuando mi mamá creyó que había utilizado calcomanías/pegatinas! Por cierto, el color base que ven es WnW Megalast en el color I Need a Refresh-Mint.
 What is your favorite fruit?

Whimsical by Revlon

I had read and seen the hype originated by Revlon's Whimsical. I had not seen it at my local pharmacies or stores, so I just said to myself, "Carol, you don't need it". Well, I stopped by my local Rite Aid last week to see what deals they had and as I approached the Revlon nail stand, there it was, just among other few polishes I did not even care to see... Whimsical, my Whimsical. I had convinced myself I did not need it, but I could not resist how pretty it looked in addition to the fact that I only paid $2.50 (I think) for it. I applied 2 coats of it over white. I love it!
Había leído y visto la sensación que ocasionó el esmalte Whimsical de Revlon. No lo ví por ningún lado y entonces me convencí que no lo necesitaba. La semana pasada pasé a Rite Aid a ver que ofertas tenían y cuando me acerqué al estante de Revlon, allí estaba, entre un par de esmaltes que ni me detuve a mirar... Whimsical, el mío. A pesar que me había convencido que no lo necesitaba, no me pude resistir lo lindo que se veía además que solo pagué $2.50 por el. Lo apliqué sobre blanco en mis uñas cortas.

I Own a 'Flying Dragon'

Hello there, 
Why didn't I know that China Glaze's Flying Dragon (Neon) was so gorgeous?! My mom bought it for me (along with Lighthouse and Ruby Pumps) and I was in awe... A beautiful purple with small gold and blue glitter? Yes please. I was not completely thrilled once I applied it because the blue glitter was not too noticeable, but this made quite a vampy design. I stamped using SH Insta-Dri in Silver Sweep with BM-202.
Por qué no sabía que Flying Dragon (Neon) de China Glaze es hermoso? Mi mamá me lo compró (junto con Lighthouse y Ruby Pumps) y me quedé asombrada... Un morado hermoso con brillitos azules y dorados? Ven a mí! No me simpatizó una vez aplicado el hecho que los brillos azules no se notaban mucho, pero éste manicure era oscuro y lindo a la vez. Usé el platillo BM-202 junto con el esmalte SH Insta-Dri Silver Sweep.

Sally Hansen Gem Crush - Big Money Swatch

Hi there :)
This is a mani I wore a couple of days ago and it's another lazy glitter mani. I started with two coats of Sally Hansen in Lacey Lilac topped with two coats of Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Big Money. I have had this glitter polish for a while and I love it. I think there is so much glitter in it that it looks good over any color.
Hoy traigo otro manicure fácil con brillantina. Empecé con dos capas de Sally Hansen en el color Lacey Lilac y le apliqué dos capas de Big Money de la línea Sally Hansen Gem Crush. Ésta brillantina es muy linda y a mi gusto se ve muy bien sobre cualquier color.
