Ever since, I am really in love with nail polishes that I hoard a lot of them in one go. Every week I change colors from plain colors to glitter to matte. I never get bored of nail polishes. I rather buy nail polishes than foundation or concealer. Come to think of it, should I consider this as my guilty pleasure?
I'm actually a plain-colored nails type of girl so, I rather have plain colored nails that have nail art or anything. But nowadays I'm wanting to go out of my comfort zone and do my own nail art. I've never been the best on controlling a nail polish brush so my nails are never ever perfect. So because of this, I thought that I should do nail art on myself for me to get better at doing my nails. I knew it would be hard work but, hard work doesn't hurt right?
I'm having a feeling that I should go with red nails this week. I saw plenty of girls wearing red the past week, and as a result, it inspired me to go red. I saw the Red Essence Colour & Go nail polish in my nail polish stack (it's odd that I can't find its name on the bottle) and it's perfect for a beginner on nail art like me because it's quick dry. I don't need to worry on waiting extra hours for the base nail polish to dry once I fail and do the design again. Meanwhile, for the gold nail polish, I thought that the gold shade from OMG named "Gold Digger" is a perfect partner for the red that I chose. I'm going on for a elegant-kind of look. And looking at the outcome right now... Yep it's elegant (and cute).

I had a hard time moving the brush around. Unlike doing the usual straight stroke which is now easy peasy for me, doing the heart shaped french tip on my ring finger is so hard to perfect. I think I repeated it 3 times before I got it right. Nail art is definitely hard work and focus. Good thing that the hours it took me to do this nail art is very much worth it. I ended up falling in love with it 100%. Hence, I'm looking forward next week for my new nail art design!
