Gel Mani: TarePanda(s)!

Good evening everyone!

I hope 2013 has been great (for the most parts) for all of you as we count down to the last day of 2013 today! We can’t thank you guys enough for the love and support from the day we opened till today, thank you!

I have a cute set to share today; tare panda as requested by the customer! She asked to pair them with stripes and a ribbon, in black and white to keep it clean!

May 2014 be an even better and blessed year for all of you! Happy New Year in advance!


Gel Mani: Hearts on Tips

Good afternoon everyone!

This customer found this design from the internet, and wanted to do it in black, white and red!
20131214-180611.jpg This is a simple design with a twist on the usual French tips! They’re now jagged, and has hearts in between the jagged tips! Such an interesting design!


Gel Mani: Sweet Ribbons

Hi everyone!

This is a super sweet set that my customer requested for – it’s modified from a reference picture she provided and we switched it up by changing the colours and adding the gold polka dots.




I love the sweet colours here and the interesting trio of ribbons (ok, technically one ribbon and two halves) lining the half moons. Such a great idea!


Gel Mani: Nordic Prints

Good morning everyone!

Christmas is here and everyone is getting their nails done.

Here’s a set of Christmas nails of Nordic Prints. This customer wanted Nordic prints with black and nude colours.


Here is a close-up picture of what I matched for her . I chose black and nude for the base , Nordic prints in black and some embellishments to match her request . Love this design so much!


Wishing everyone Merry Christmas!


Customisation: Nightmare… Just Before Christmas

Hi everyone!

This is the second customisation request I received this year for The Nightmare Before Christmas nails – the first set was done for Halloween, and now, for Christmas! I suppose it works well both ways, given Tim Burton’s style!

Everyone seems to love the silhouette of Jack (and sometimes Sally) against the moon…


Added some elements of Christmas – can you spot a subtle Christmas tree, a Santa hat, and some snowflakes?



A little surprise here – I spread out Jack Skellington over two nails… so cute when joined together!






Gel Mani: Christmas Prints

Hi everyone!

Ever since I did Georgina‘s Christmas nails, we’ve been getting requests for her design at The Nail Artelier! I must say that many people agree that Georgina (better known as sugarrandspice on Instagram) has really good taste!

This was the set that she posted on her Instagram:


And this is the set that I did for one customer who wanted the set without the snowglobe!


I was given free rein to freestyle the design, so I made all ten nails different.


Actually, this design was based on a Christmas print that Georgina sent me – I just took different parts of it, mixed it up and added snowflakes, and spread it out over different nails in different permutations.


Which is your favourite nail? Personally, I love the nails with reindeer and snowflakes!


Classic Pedi: Mr and Mrs

Hi guys!

Today I’m gonna share this art that I did with nail polish and acrylic paint!

The customer showed me a picture from Quieyelash’s instagram. (so design credits to them!)

I thought this was really cute ­čśÇ The original was done on a manicure, so I had to ┬áchange their hair to make it fit the big toe and not look so awkward!




Here’s a close look for the Missus! She has a pearl necklace too :p


And the Mister! Some moustache and a little bow tie! Super adorable!



Have a good day!


Gel Mani: Unicorns x Snowflakes

Hello everyone!

I am the latest member of Team TNA! This is my first time blogging, so I am still trying to get the hang of everything!

Everyone is still in the Christmas mood now, so here’s a set that a customer mixed and matched for the season!

Remember the fluffy unicorn from Despicable Me? The customer loves it, and decided to pair it with some simple French tips and snowflakes for Christmas.
20131214-175258.jpg Here’s a closer look at the unicorn on the thumb! Spot the two tiny unicorns on her ring finger too!
20131214-175315.jpg She also requested for a snowflake on the index finger. Here’s another photo!

Gel Mani: Beary Christmas!

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re not sick of seeing Christmas nails yet, because we still have tons to share! Today’s set was actually the first set of Christmas nails done at TNA this year!


The customer wanted a bear, reindeer and snowflakes… so I drew these! I also added in gold reindeer and snowflake charms that I bought in Tokyo in November – SO GLAD I bought them, because they turned out to be really pretty when embedded in gel!


Isn’t it interesting how she picked out a dark blue for her base? I usually get asked to use black as a base for dark Christmas nails, so this was a first for me I believe…
