Making Nail Art Easy.....

Hi all.. last week i was just surfing on Internet, to spend my precious time.. But suddenly there came a gallery of nail arts.. my conscious pricked me.. and i was in the urge of doing one in my nails too.. I took my nail polishes(there was a whole lot of unused ones), my thin paint brush, fabric paint and nail enamel(the clear one). And then was thinking about, how am i gonna do my (so called) art, brighter, or at least give an outline.. was thinking really hard for sometime(as i didn't have a black or darker shade of nail enamel).. Then a bright idea struck me, went to my dressing table picked up my bright idea, and started with my NAIL ART..
Ya.. It was my Black eyeliner which i used to draw the outline.. it was really easy to handle.. Try it and i bet, you only never rely on any other thing to do your outlines..
Now coming to the easy steps to make your own nail art(wish you all do better than me, i did this with the very urge, as if that was my last day on earth).. Gather all you necessary items.. have an idea of the design you are planning to draw.. start with the background colour you wish.. you may even start without any base colour.. your natural nail colour would be great with dark colours.. Then with a thin paint brush apply the design,with fabric paints or nail enamel, on one of your nail(need not be too much of details), so that if you aren't satisfied with the design you can very well change it.. Then do the details with black eyeliner .. you may even stick small stones or pearls to decorate it.. after few mins apply a coat of the clear nail enamel(maybe 2 coats if you need it..) And there's your nail dazzlingly ready to the party.. Come on Rock it, your way.. Happy sharing :)

What a day!

What a day was it? Today i wouldn't say it was a very great day but it was good due to some small & cute things.. what do i start with? right from the fact that i wasn't waiting for the green light in any signal today morning, and had super fun in class, the class got over soon(though not the fun), had a nice nap, tried the "pav masala" after a long craving for it(and had to skip my dinner as it was toooo heavy).. and ya how could i forget that i saw the "sun"(the real hot sun) after a long time( maybe a week was a little long), the pity(mighty) fellow, who had been cursed so long for doing his duty, very sincerely, was on a leave for some time.. but only after his proxy(the rain) came in on his absence, we started loving him.. Today after a long leave, i was able to see him.. feel him.. and that made me tell "what a day was it?".. though not a great day, it was a simple pleasent day:)

My first try in pencil sketch!

This is my first try in pencil sketch.. Though done by literally copying from a pencil sketch which was in ET paper, it gave me great confidence in trying a portrait in coming days... It was done on the day when we got a day off due to Late.Mr.YSR(C.M Andrapradesh) passing away.. And so tried the portrait of the late C.M.. come on that holiday was coz of him right? (with all due respct to him ) One of such kind a holiday spent very usefully(a very rare event), apart from doing other useful things like watching TV, Chatting, etc.. lol:)

Soap Flowers

Hi all.. Here's my first post for you all.. Now I'm gonna share with you all, about how to do flowers with soaps.. Here goes the things you will need to do the soap flowers;

*Finely grated soap

*Cornflour or Maida(all purpose flour)

*Paints or food colours

*Thin flexible wire

*Green floral tape

*Some brushes & PVA glue

Now lets start to prepare the basic dough with which we are gonna do the flowers..

Take some amount of finely grated soap(anyone, but let it be dry) and take the equal amount (or 2:1 ratio depending on the moist of the soap) of flour, and mix them both with little PVA glue till you get a non sticky dough.. If your grated soap is little wet due to the texture reduce the amount of glue and adjust with the grated soap and flour.. add the glue stage by stage to get the required result.. Remember the dough should be non sticky to your hands.. Now that's the dough which can be used to do several things.. one such thing is these flowers.. (You could add the food colours or paints to the dough now or paint that later when the final product dries up..)

The next step is to take a thin flexible wire and cover or wind it with the green floral tape. Take a small ball from the dough and make it tear shaped, and press gently to form the petal.

Take the petal and wrap it around the wire.. continue the process and place the petals around the center.. make it into a desired flower or rose shaped flower and do the calyx too.. allow it to dry, when satisfied..

When completely dried, paint it in the desired colours (this step can be avoided if the colour is mixed with the dough) and give another layer of green tape for the stem.. And there is your hand made soap flower.. continue to do more and arrange them in your flower vase or any way as you wish..

Have fun making these flowers.. catch you all soon.. bye.. have a good day ahead..
