VicCopycat 2013 - Chalkboard Nails' 70s Crochet Chic

Happy new year lovelies!!

Today I have one more special edition of VicCopycat. It's VicCopycat 2013 and here I recreate my most favourite manicure of 2013. It's sooo darn hard to choose one favourite among all those purr-fect manicures in 2013. But finally I decided to pick one of Chalkboard Nails' manicures to be recreated. 

I really really really love these colors together!

VicCopycat - The Nailasaurus' Festive Floral Nail Art

Hello lovelies!

I know I'm a bit late for VicCopycat of this week. Well, it's kinda hectic here with all my uni assignments and VicCopycat isn't a post that can be scheduled weeks before. It's based on my weekly favourite manicures so I have to do it weekly too. But don't worry, my Christmas break will start this Monday! Yaaaaay!! So without further do, here's VicCopycat for this week. I decided to recreate a really gorgeous festive floral nail art created by Sammy of The Nailasaurus.

Instead of using white base like what Sammy did, I chose to use a warmer colour. I used OPI My Vampire is Buff which is my favourite!

VicCopycat - Lucy's Stash' Floral Stamping Nail Art

Hi everyone!

It's weekend already! Time for VicCopycat again! This week VicCopycat is featuring Floral Stamping Nailart by Lucy's Stash. Wait, stamping? Vic does stamping? No no no, I didn't stamp the floral pattern on my nails like what Lucy did. Well, I don't have that kind of floral pattern on my one and only stamping plate after all (Yup, I still only have one plate!) So again, like what I did in my VicCopycat - Chalkboard Nails Squeaky Toy Nail Art, I freehanded the floral pattern. 

And yes, it almost made my eyes crossed! But it's worth it!

Crumpet's Nail Tarts 33 DC Day 33 - Freestyle/Recreate

33 DC #crumpetsnailtarts Day 33 - Freestyle/Recreate

 I didn't stamp the honeycombs on my ring finger like what Sarah did, just because I don't have any honeycombs stamp. Well, to be exact I only have one plate (and it's floral themed) because I don't really like stamping nail art. So I freehanded the honeycombs.

VicCopycat - Work/Play/Polish's Guest Post at Beauty Judy (and BPS review)

*Products were provided for honest review

Hi everyone!

I hope you had (or going to have) a beautiful weekend! For today's VicCopycat, I decided to recreate Work/Play/Polish's guest post at Beauty Judy. As Leslie (of WPP) said, the origin of this double diagonal French design is actually from Victoria of Manicurator. But I chose to recreate Leslie's version with matte and glossy touch.

So here it is!

VicCopycat - Wondrously Polished's Reciprocal Gradient

Hello everyone! 

From today, I'm starting a new... ummm... what should I call it? Series? Feature? 
Well, dududuuuum!!

I really had so much fun recreating some oh-so-adorable manicures on some nail art challenges I took part before. Not just admiring their works, I really love recreating those ah-mazing designs on my nails. It's really challenging for me to do the same artwork as they did (and then mocking my own work comparing to theirs). So I decided to continue doing the "my version" of my favourite manicures in this feature. Hopefully I could do this every once a week, inspired by my weekly most favourite manicure done by other blogger, youtuber, or IGer. 

So now let's just start this brand new series!
