As you might know, I am easily getting bored on one style in overall. It does not matter where it is.

I just feel bored on the same style for long time in hair, fashion and beauty. That is why I keep changing my nail design by myself with my own taste. I have just got into it since I started self nail art and I think it is getting progressed.

To talk about my taste, I used to love to have long nails with coffin or almond shape. But recently, I got a lot of things to do with hands like house chore, helping family fix house and typing fast. It was quite hard for me to maintain the long nails as I wished.

Besides, in the meantime, I have gradually found attractive points of short nails!

Strips of various colors are useful for creating geometric designs . This is useful when drawing a straight line or when making a French nail. And if you don’t want to, you don’t have to take it off again. 

You can also use a sticker or masking tape instead of a strip. When drawing a geometric design, it helps to mark areas that need to be polished and not. 

4. Thin brush

  • If you want to draw a lined design, you can use a brush with a strong hair. Apply nail polish to the brush several times. It will easily sprite.

  • If you want to create a watercolor feel, use a straw. Apply nail polish to the end of the straw and blow the other end of the straw with your mouth. Then the manicure will spread naturally. It will be really amazing.

  • To create a gradient, you need a sponge. Apply the nail polish of the desired color evenly to the sponge, then tap the sponge on the nail. Repeat until the desired design is achieved.

I feel like it has been a while since I posted the latest post of self nail art. Well, Let’s say I have been busy to take care of my nails thinking of what should be the next for new nails. I was dealing with tough real life that I have been carrying on.

However, I think I have done things which must be done, so I am finally able to think about my own beauty with new nails.

A sudden idea for the new nails was ‘transparency’. I thought it would be cool to try transparent nails with glitter so it can make little bit of holographic effect.

Below Instagram photo is what I got inspired by for this time. Look at that gorgeous shimmering holographic transparent nail design!


Uh-Oh, But sadly, I could not do just like the design, because I did not have right nail sticker foil of holographic design. What I only have is 3 kinds of glitters. So, I had to choose one of those which seems similar with the holographic color the most.

Take a look the result that I have tried to reach any similar looks for that! Of course, as I mentioned on previous post, I tool coffin ballerina shape for new nails.

  • Gel UV LED Lamp
  • Nail Glitter
  • Top and Base Gel Coat
  • Nail Decor Stone Set & Tweezer
  • Nail file
  • Gel Nail Polish Cleaner or Nail Remover Acetone
  • Some Cotton Pads or Tissue


Well, for me doing those nails, I am not fully satisfied with its result. I am going to be improved on skills and nail materials and try it again with the perfectly right materials for holographic transparent nails.

Yet, I do love all the nails that I have done so far and my lovely hobby which is always bringing pretty outcomes for better and I-Feel-Pretty mood.

Until the next nail design, Cheers!

BEAUTY NAILS – Self Nail Art Of The Week 6 – Rosy Baby Boomer Style with Poly Gel

Image result for self nail gif
from GIPHY

Hello gorgeous people, Welcome to my beauty post!

I am finally done with my new nails with poly gel kit that I ordered from Amazon.

Yesterday was my birthday, by the way, however, I could not do anything special outside of home. You know, all because of Coronavirus crisis. So, I had to find something interesting to do at home. Luckily, I got my package on the day! I was on nail job right after getting the kit in exciting mood.

Related Post

As I told you on previous post, I am done with trying baby boomer nails with poly gel products.

Ta-daa, Those are what I got for new nails! I took a picture of its box and materials inside. I wrote what kind of materials it has on below photo.

8 Colors of poly gel, 1 base coat, 1 top coat gel, guide nail tips, 2 glitters, builder gel cleanser, 2 in 1 tool for spatula and gel brush, 1 nail file

It was the very first time for me to try poly gel, so I was quite worried about doing it in a right way. But as soon as I started doing the nails, I realized it is that that hard to do it by yourself. Poly gel is sticky indeed, but it is not too hard to manage it with builder gel cleanser liquid.

The products that I got from Amazon has 8 colors, pink, white, cover pink, light pink, clear, milk white, tea rose and clear pink.


I chose ‘tea rose’ for bottom and ‘white’ for top of nails for the baby boomer. Too pinkish is not my taste at all, so i just hoped that the color is turning into as I expect after being cured by my UV lamp.

See below pictures of nails, those are the results of my self nail with poly gel for the first time!

I thought that tea rose color should be like rose ones, but I do not think this can be called tea rose color. It seems more like baby pink color.


You might catch it, but the area around my finger nails are not that in good status, therefore, there is a limit to file or organize up to get it clean to get the best quality which makes me sad. This is because of my bad habit to bite nails and the area nearby.

Also, I leave the nails as it has matte surface. I usually prefer matte type looks when it is compared to glossy looks. But in any sooner, I will put top coat on the nails for protection of coloring at least!

Next time, I am going to use different color like MLBB for bottom color of baby boomer style.

Beauty Nails – The Main Reason Why Poly Gel Is Better Than Acrylic


Hi guys, I came with news of my nail life!

The thing is, I just ordered poly gel nails kit from Amazon last night. It will be delivered in 2 days. I am more than just excited. I wanted to try new things with new technics for my self nail life.

Above products are what I ordered from Amazon with the price around 36 EUR. It was hard to finally choose after comparing other products.

I was skeptical of having nail extension with gel products, because I have already done that but was not so satisfied with not long lasting time and easy breaks. However, I got news from nail community that poly gel can be compared with acrylic nails.

What is Poly Gel Anyway?

PolyGel is a breakthrough nail enhancement that can be applied as an overlay or used to sculpt a full set of nails. The enhancement formula delivers strong, flexible, feather light nails that nail technicians and clients can count on. Once applied, PolyGel is astonishingly light on clients and stronger than hard gels.


Why is Poly Gel Better Than Acrylic Nails?

Poly gel is not normal and typical gel nail products but has the strongest durability among the products. Like, Acrylic Types! Some people call it acrylic gel because of that.

Unlike hard gel, PolyGel is not self-leveling, but stays where you place it; unlike acrylic, it doesn’t harden until it’s cured in an LED or UV lamp. PolyGel is more flexible than acrylic, stronger than hard gel, and lighter than both.


What is more about good things of poly gel is that it can be proud of its durability with less smells compared to acrylic nails. If there are people who have already done with acrylic nails, you will definitely know what I am talking about. The process of the acrylic nails gives you headache with stinky chemical smells, right?

Image result for polygel nail gif

Well, You do not have to worry about that part with poly gel nails. Because it almost has no bad smells that you are concerned about when you do it. That is also why I chose to try this products.

I will keep posted about reviews of the poly gel products after I am done with self nail art. I think I am going to do baby boomer nails, but I will see.


Stay tuned, reviews and a result of self nail with poly gel will be uploaded next week!

Beauty – Have You Heard Of Baby Boomer Nails a.k.a French Fade? Where Is The Name From?

Image result for self nail ombre
Image from pinterest

People who favor a more classic nail look, rather than the ridiculous fluffy and face nail trends that have been sweeping Instagram, may want to get baby boomer nails once in life.

Baby boomer nails are all the rage in France and Germany. According to Pinterest’s 2018 Global Beauty Report, pins of this particular nail design are up 100%. And if you just asked yourself, “What the heck are baby boomer nails and why are Europeans loving it?”

You’re not the only one, we’ve got the same questions.

What are baby boomer nails?

If you’re someone who favours a more classic nail look, rather than the over the top nail trends that have been sweeping Instagram as of late (remember jelly nails?), you’ll be pleased to know this latest nail trend offers the perfect blend of minimal nail art and timeless style.

Also known as French ombré or French fade, the Baby Boomer nail trend is basically a new take on the classic French manicure. While the traditional French mani features a light pink base with defined, contrasting tips, baby boomer nails blend the pink and white together, creating a seamless, gradient effect.

A twist on the classic French tips, baby boomer nails are white a pink frosted nails and have the same white tips as a French manicure but with a more gradual fade from pink to white.

Some people add a bit of glitter for a sparkly twist.


The acrylic design can be shaped into a point, squared off or rounded depending on personal preference.

Why are they called and ‘baby boomer nails’?


The name ‘Baby Boomer‘ is confusing because when we think of Baby Boomers, we think of our moms and grandmas. Well, the name comes from the classic look that many older women have worn for a long time, but really it’s a modified version of what we know as the ‘French manicure. 

According to nail artist Jade Tang, who spoke to Refinery29, the trend was named after the post-WWII generation because it evolved from the classic French manicure and dates back to around the 1940s. During that time (the baby boomer years), it was popular to paint your nails in shades of white and pink.

So for reasons that seem obvious this is why the frosted ombre pink and white nail trend was named because of the era the polish colors were most popular.


BEAUTY NAILS – Self Nail Art of The Week 5 – Gray Marble Mood with Ombre Gradient Design


Hello guys, Welcome back to my post series of self nail art of the week!

This week, I wanted to try something different from simple coloring or typical decorating beads. I have been thinking what design should be the best for me to satisfy myself for what I eventually want.

Self Nail Post Series

And yes, I finally decided to try gradient nails by myself at home. It can be also called ombre nails.

Ombré nails (just like ombré hair) are a type of manicure in which a color gradient is created. A light color on the top of the nail gradually blends into a darker color toward the tip.

Image result for self nail gif

Actually, I have wanted to try french ombre nails as below, but I could not do so, sadly, because I did not have the right nail polish color for that.

Image result for self nail ombre
Image from pinterest

So I have to create new Ombre gradient design for doing new nails thinking about limited nail polish color I have at the moment. If I couldn’t get warm moody french ombre gradient style, I wanted to go for cold dark base color as its background. I chose dark gray one for it.

And this time, for shaping nail artificial tips, I chose medium length coffin ail shape. If you would like to check other pretty nail shapes, Click here.


Anyway, It was my very first time to try gradient ombre nails at home by myself. So, the result does not seem perfect and professional. How does it look anyway?

It took quite a while compared to other self nail that I have done before. I had to search good information for beginners how to do gradient ombre nails. For checking related tutorials, Click here, wikihow for reading or Youtube for watching.

I thought for a second about adding up some points with beads and so on on this design, but I just decided to leave like this for now.

Simple but Impressive and Chic design is always the best for me when it comes to nail art.

Next time, I am definitely going to try nude tone color french ombre gradient nail. Guys, Stay focused on my Posts!

Hey Beauties Welcome to my post of pretty self-nail.

I guess 2 days ago, I got new self nail with black color for this week. I left my nail with nothing on it few weeks before this. Well, that was my plan, as my nails kind of got damaged from doing self nails much often. But I couldn’t leave those as they are. You Know Why?

I have a bad habit biting my nails. Sadly, I can’t really fix the habit which is out of control. I got it from my youth, so It is quite hard to fix in a second. Doing nails is not only for being pretty but also for preventing myself from biting those. I am thinking of it as Kill two birds with one stone.

A week ago, I changed my hair color from black to blonde, I want to have a remarkable opposite color of it. I thought combination of black and matt light blonde would look perfect, so I decided nail color for Black.

Enjoy what I have got as the outcome for little bit shiny, simple but chic black nails.


For its shape, I chose almond as usual. Ballerina tpe is still too far for me to try on as I have to do house work by myself every day, sadly. About other various nail shapes, check my previous post about this!

Next time, I am thinking about trying fancy type with glitter and crystals on. Keep paying your attention on my trying!

BEAUTY ADVICE – 5 Struggles You Better Know Before Getting Long Nails


Hello guys, I hope you have a chill and peaceful Sunday.

I am usually thinking about nails, most of the time, and I am trying to deal with an interesting topic that I want to share.

“I don’t do drama, I do nails!”

I used to do long long nails few months before. Like, other nail-lovers. So far, Nail is LIFE to me. However, It costs too much a lot on daily life to simply embrace. Well, I would say it was quite hard time to maintain beautiful nails.

gif, fashion, and makeup 이미지

If you need to work and even do house chore by your won without helpers, you better know about problems in advance that you would have as soon as you get long nails.

1.Hard to Type Right

Image result for shoe lace long nails gif
Image result for shoe lace long nails gif

For me, I have a job in the office which means that I usually do my job typing for reports and communications. Some say that it is not problem at all to type with long nails. But think about this, every sound whenever you type with your nails would be kind of annoying to others. Besides, you will get much typo than when you are without those. That is another bothering part, indeed.

2.Quite Impossible to Open Can by your own nail

Image result for open can

It is quite awkward when you can’t even open a can by your own on a first date at restaurant. It is even worse there is no one around you to help. Or you could be type of person who can’t easily ask for help to strangers. Do not try too much to make it done by your long nail, it would be just broken if you think about it easily.


3.Awkward when you press any button

Step 3: Enter your PIN

This part is the most embarrassing moment that I even had because of long nails. Showing off your brand new nails to public could be cool. But things are different when you buy grocery at supermarket. To be specifically, If you prefer using card not cash, that is the epic point that I am talking about. The moment when you have to press your pin code into card reader but you can’t easily press it right because of length of nails…Believe me, that is not pleasant at all.

4.Not free when you fix your shoe lace

Image result for shoe lace nails gif

With long nails, your would not feel free whenever you have to fix your shoe lace or even pull your pants up. Of course, you can do those, but what I mean is that It would take longer time than usual. I mean, Long Long time. Imagine that this keeps going every day even when you have to hurry for some reason. That sucks.

5. Bother Yourself to Wash Hair

Image result for annoying washing hair gif

Yes, You have used your tip of nails and fingers when you wash your hair. But you will have to forget to do it like usual if you decide to get long nails. At the first time , you would feel awkward when you wash your hair only with tip of fingers. You have to stretch your all finger like straight at all time to wash your hair properly. Be noted that you can’t bend your finger like when you have short nails. If you do that any case, you would break your beautiful long nails or have a damage on your scalp.

BEAUTY-NAILS – Self Nail Art of The Week 3 – Bling Bling Metallic Blue


Hello guys, I am back again with my new nails of the week!

Series Of The Post
BEAUTY – NAILS – DIY -Self Nail Art of the week – 셀프 네일
BEAUTY – NAILS – Self Nail Art of The Week 2 – White And Shiny Style

I have been into blue colors for weeks, so I thought It would be perfect to have it this week. Ta-Daa, See those nails that I did. This time, It is not so basic style with simple color only. I would call it Style of Metallic Blue and with beads and metallic light blue with pattern of line and shape.

How does it look? 🙂

To confess you, there is a secret on the nail. I did not do those nails by myself with whole designing and stuff. Those are ready-made nail tips. There are lots of nail tips products in the world with various beautiful design. But I am only using one brand that I have been using so far. Name of the products is Dashing Diva. For me, I bought lots of those from Korea. But I think its headquarter is in the State.

Anyway, the way how to do it is more than simple. This product already contains strong sticker for nail uses backside of each nail. Therefore, you peel off those stickers and simply apply on your real nails. But, as a person who is much interested in trying as many ready made nail tips as possible, I got some lesson from my experience.


Stickers would be better for caring your real nails from attaching and detaching than nail super glue. But, sadly, I prefer longer lasting of nail tips than much caring of real nails. Therefore, I would say, just use nail glue for nail tips even though there is already sticker on nail tips. For Long Lasting.

For people who might wonder where to get those products of Dashing Diva, It is sadly hard to get it offline easily. To get it in Germany or in Europe, I think Amazon is just the best and the easiest way for you. You can simply check and click below pictures what kind of models Amazon does have for Dashing Diva. Sadly, Amazon only has a few kind of model that Dashing Diva is producing. That makes me sad, honestly.

They do have pedi-set as well for your information.

BEAUTY – PEOPLE – Jenny Bui Is Not Just Cardi B’s Nail Artist

Hello, I hope you have a beautiful day. Welcome back to my newly uploaded Post!

This time, I brought a post related to Beauty Nails that you might want to know about. But it would be not only about Nail designs or any Beauty Tips of how to make your nails look better, but about a person who is already famous of her ability famous in Nails Beauty Industry.

Jenny Bui at her Nail Salon

Today’s heroine is Jenny Bui who is best known as the mastermind behind Cardi B’s now iconic fingernails.


She has hand-crafted each one of Cardi B’s signature stiletto jeweled nail looks, However, before she launched her nail business with a shop in New York City, Bui grew up in poverty in Cambodia, fled the Khmer Rouge genocide, and started a family and a new life for herself in the U.S. Here I am going share you how she overcame unimaginable hardship to be the “Queen of Bling.”

Bui was born in Cambodia in the late 1970s to a father who was a cook and a mother who was a soda street vendor. She had eight siblings. Their lives turned upside down after the Khmer Rouge took over when she was only 5 years old. “I [had] no shelter, nothing. I just lived in the air and [rain]. We don’t have shoe, we don’t have clothes to wear. We don’t have toothbrush and we don’t have nothing to eat,” Bui said. She fled to Thailand at the age of eight and was separated from some of her family members. Bui recalled how the Thai government dropped them on a mountain that was covered with bombs that when “you walk, you step wrong spot, you die.”


Bui also recalled how people fought and died for water. She said they had no water to drink at the time and it was so scarce that when someone found water, they would steal it.

Bui immigrated to Canada as a teenager but moved to the Bronx when she turned 22. At 25, she started studying cosmetology. She worked on her own nails but they did not look good at first. Her lack of experience left some of Bui’s customers dissatisfied that they would resort to shouting racial slurs at her. Despite the struggle, she pushed on to reach her goals.

Most of us would never be able to encounter kinds of tragedies Bui and her family suffered over the years, and Bui herself has a hard time talking about her past without tearing up.


Still, she hasn’t let those events behind her ability to press on and keep building up her business, a mindset that ultimately led to her close working relationship with Cardi B. She has also won various awards for her works, including the Nail Artist Influencer of the Year award at the prestigious 2019 American Influencer Awards, and her popularity keeps growing, as no need to doubt.

Now, no need to emphasize more, Everyone who is nail-lover is eager to have an appointment with Jenny Bui to get her nails. Beauty Bloggers and Youtubers are videotaping it as a v-log or an interview as below contents.

To get to the main point of this post about Jenny Bui,
she is a wealth of inspiration when it comes to learning how to make your own way.

Let’s learn 3 important lessons worth thinking about from what she has been through and achieved.


1. Be Stubborn of what you do and Keep in that way.
After opening a second shop in Harlem, Bui endured aggressive racism. Customers would insult her then-shaky English by hurling racial slurs at her and telling her to go back to China. Many times they would try to leave without paying. They often succeeded. Bui kept getting up for work every day regardless.

2. Get your own remarkable style.
Bui discovered her signature style: the crystal-encrusted nails that have earned her the nickname “The Queen of Bling.” Originally inspired by a Japanese nail magazine, Bui’s work soon drew the attention of “Love & Hip Hop” star Yandy Smith, who helped her set up an Instagram account that now boasts almost 1 million followers.

3. Stay humble and hardworking no matter what.
Cardi B took Bui with her on the road to fame, but that hasn’t interfered with Bui’s dedication to hard work, persistence, and focusing on others. If anything, her newfound success and dealings with celebrities have strengthened those principles in her life.

BEAUTY – NAILS – Self Nail Art of The Week 2 – White And Shiny Style

Hello, I hope you have a good weekend!

I am back with another self nails contents that I have actually done this week.
I kind of wanted to do white colored nails in a while so I decided to go for that one.

With pure and pain white color, little bit of glitter would be not so bad.
So I put shiny glitter on each index finger as a point. How does it look? It is only obviously captured on the first photo, sadly.


If you are a beginner of self nail world, You can check out my previous post which would be helpful for building up your skills!

For the nail art, as I have been doing it by myself more then 3 years, It took one and a half hour to make it done.

For beginners, you have to keep in mind that it might take more than 3 hours. Therefore, please try it on your long free time like weekend.

Time is usually being taken by filing artificial nail tips. When filing, you have to decide which type of nail shape you would like to have in advance. If you have no idea what kind of nail shape exists, refer to here so you learn it easily. My shape on this post is “Almond”.

BEAUTY – NAILS – DIY -Self Nail Art of the week – 셀프 네일

For massive luck in 2020, I got my new nails done!
But, for your information, I always do my nails by myself. You know, There is many reasons why I do it.

Glitter, shiny with silver color !

Photo can’t really take this beauty enough !

First of all, most of the time, I am very picky whenever I take services in Beauty / Fashion area.
I am not usually satisfied with all the outcome after hair salon, or example. When I do all by myself, I do not need to feel guilty of spending money for bad results. and Also, I can learn and enjoy processing of being done.

새해 2020년 를 맞이하여(핑계) 취미로 하는 셀프 네일을 하여 보았다.

나같은 경우는 미용실이나 패션 뷰티 쪽 서비스를 받으면 대부분 전혀 만족 스럽지가 않다.
그래서 스스로 나를 꾸미는 것 (머리 자르기, 염색하기, 셀프 네일하기 등)은 아마 고등학교 졸업 이후로 계속 해온 것 같다. 비싼 돈 내고 결과가 원망스러운 것 보다는 저렴하게 망하는게 낫지 않는가, 하는 생각이다. 사실 결과란 게 늘 자기 만족에 있어서 평균 이상은 했던 거 같아 ‘셀프’ 를 오히려 즐기고 있다.

*Examples that I have done for self-nail DIY 🙂
