Not only did I trip on the way out and ruined my newly painted toenails, I also got nasty cuts in almost 10 fingers that it was impossible to play the piano without grimacing. Yes, it was that baaaad. Apparently, the manicurist got carried away removing some cuticle that she also included a teeny weeny part of the dermis. Major OUCH.  So to save myself from this kind of pain and money (nail art costs 500pesos = roughly $10), I decided to just do it myself. Here goes nothing! hihi! :) Cebu Fashion Bloggers, Cebu Bloggers, fashion bloggers, food bloggers, beauty blogger, cebu beauty blogger, lifestyle bloggers, asian blogger, cebu, philippines, social influencer, online influencer, philippine bloggers, philippine fashion bloggers, toni pino-oca, Cebu Fashion Bloggers network, Nail Art Challenge, Rustans Nail Art Challenge, Nail Art Tutorial, DIY

You can also stick pretty gems to your nails with the use of clear polish (this doesn't ruin your enamel unlike the nail art glue) Apply top coat (clear or with glitters) for the finishing touch.

  11. Toni :) These are great! I'm not good in applying nail polish (even the most basic, promise).

    I've read your comment. I just want to say I'm truly touched. It wasn't easy blogging about it but I had to (for myself). Just a big heart-felt thank you.
