Pinktacular manicure!

It is fast approaching the end of October and I came to the realisation that I still have so many pinks I want to feature for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, especially the China Glaze Fight Like a Woman polishes I hauled! I have a busy week coming up (exam time!! *cries*) so there was going to be no way I could feature all the polishes individually by Sunday. Then I saw this lovely “super pink” mani by Katrina from Katrina's blog and I just knew I had to try it. It is so pretty and kawaii! I got my 1st Nail Up! mag the other week and have been meaning to try out a look like this but never got around to it. I took some inspiration also from WAH nails as they are the experts of this style and they are just so so cool. Here’s my "pinktacular manicure"!

My attempt at a WAH nails pose! =p

It took longer than I expected because I didn’t know what I wanted to do! I should have been preparing for my exam instead but oh well =p

The main polishes I used for this mani:


From L - R:
China Glaze Endurance - a gorgeous pinky/red jelly with glass flecks through it.
China Glaze Encouragement - a baby pink with silver shimmer through it. Very subtle, classy and oh so pretty!
China Glaze Empowerment - candy pink creme which is a little streaky to apply so I’d recommend thin coats.
BYS Pink with a Punch - a super bright pink that is so pigmented that only 1 coat is needed – awesome.
Ulta 3 Party Shoes - which is a gorgeous hot pink from Ulta 3’s latest range I believe. I absolutely love pinks like this!
Visee RO 602 - a pretty red and silver glitter!


Left hand:
Thumb: 2 coats of China Glaze Endurance with silver and pink rhinestones and heart dazzlings.

Index finger: 2 coats of China Glaze Encouragement with Visee RO 602 red glitter applied on the top half of the nail. I kept stuffing this nail up and in the end I went with a lazy persons gradient haha. I’ll definitely be trying out a proper gradient mani soon! Even though this nail gave me the most trouble I ended up liking it the most.

Middle finger: 1 coat of BYS Pink with a Punch with pink rhinestones. My 1st attempt at half moons! It wasn’t actually as difficult as I thought it would be which is nice. Plus the rhinestones helped cover up the dodgy edge!

Ring finger: 2 coats of China Glaze Empowerment and Kiss nail art striper in white to apply diagonal stripes.

Pinky: Ulta 3 Party Shoes applied on the tip and Kiss nail art striper in silver glitter applied on the smile line.


Right hand:
Pinky: 2 coats of Ulta 3 Party Shoes with Kiss nail art striper in black for the vertical stripes.

Ring finger: 2 coats of China Glaze Endurance with CM Nail Art gold glitter striper applied for the (rather dodgy) half moon.

Middle finger: 2 coats of China Glaze Encouragement with a thick stripe of BYS Pink with a Punch down the middle and silver rhinestones.

Index finger: 2 coats of China Glaze Empowerment with Pink Fin floral nail sticker.

Thumb: 1 coat of BYS Pink with a Punch applied to the tip with Kiss nail art striper in white and silver glitter applied to the smile line.

    @Annkiins: That design really grew on me as the days went by! It reminded me of candy too.

    @Donna: My workmates loved it but think I'm insane for spending so much time on my nails haha. Yeah bling nails are awesome!! The Japanese do nails like no other seriously.

  18. @Katrina: Lol thanks Katrina! I really really love your super pink mani =D

    @Just Cake Girl & Gaby: Thank you so much ladies!

    @KarenD: I had no idea what to name this mani so my sis came up with the name hehe. I really liked the candy stripes after a while myself!

  19. @rins: You can never go wrong with a coloured french tip I think , especially if it includes glitter!

    @Monika: Yes I know you love pinks! =) I have more pink polishes than any other colour hehe. I really liked doing the different designs so I think I'll be doing more in the future!

    @nikki: You are very kind Nikki! I think you will really like Encouragement, it's such a pretty polish.

  21. Loving it! It's so awesomely girly. My fave is the diagonal stripe nail. The gold half-moon nail kind of looks like a strawberry to me with a gold stem :B

  22. I'm not the hugest fan of pink but I swear, all the bloggers doing pink for BCA are converting me!

    I really adore how each nail is so incredibly unique but there's still a sense of unity in the design; nothing looks out of place.

    Hard to pick a favourite but I think I like the designs on both your index fingers the most.

  23. @Angela: That is becoming my favourite design too. I will definitely be doing it again! Your description of the half moon with gold glitter is lovely, I won't think of it as a fail anymore =p

    @Danielle: I'm glad we could convert you to pink Danielle! It is one of my favourite colors along with purple. That was what I was aiming for so it's lovely to hear that you think that!

  24. oh this is so pink and wonderful ♥ You're so creative! :)

  25. Absolutely gorgeous and unique!
    Terri, xoxo
