21  COOKING / Dessert / Valentines day DIY # 2 : Homemade chocolates on: February 18, 2012 06:31:04 PM
Another cool thing that I did this year is hand made chocolate with my girl friends. We meet up the night before and kept the DIY chocolate session a total secret from our love ones. We got a couple blocks of pure chocolate ( dark and white ), a dozen large strawberries, 2 types of crushed nuts, coco powder & paper boxes for decorations. The materials we need are pretty simple and we end up chipping in only 7.3 dollars per person.

Hopefully you all have a wonderful and special Valentines day this year. If you wish to give you love one a memorable gifts for the future years, I have a DIY project ideas for you that will do the trick. I knew it because I made this for my husband and all he does at work is bragging about his unique handmade gifts.

I picked a very simple design pattern which only require 3 steps. Any entry level knitter will know these basic steps: the cast-on, the basic stitches and the cast-off/ bind-off method. My scarf is 38 stitches wide and I lost count of how many rows I did for this scarf. All I remember is I knit 6 hours every day for 7 days straight. It is like another full time job!

The Initials part:

Ooh I love your nails, what plate is the bow from? I was planning on getting it and then lost the number.

if anyone else is interested in these plates, then I recommend Konad Q1 plate Cool as it is just awesome.

I realized once you own a set of nail stamping kit, you are gonna love creating new nail style rather than going to the salon. It is way more fun to design something that matches your style without spending a ton of money and time. I am a true lover of this invention and i think it is defiantly worth the investment.

My post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/nail-art/stamp-lace-with-polka-dots-nails

I choose a thicker lace design so it is pretty outstanding since it take up a lot of space. If you only have the thin lace, you might want to double that up to achieve the result. After the lace is on, I added polka dot only to one side of the nail. ( I guess you can fill up the rest of the space but i didnt want to over do it, might try that next time).

For the thumb I did a barbie girl print with big polka dot bow on top to match the rest of my nail style. I love this girl print because there is no way that I can draw this, especially on my right hand. But look how easy and useful my stamping tools are in this situation. Money well spent!

A combination of lines in different colors, angles and directions can be super creative. Since I have so many ideas for line nail designs, I will draw different ones on each nail. A mix of gold and silver tip painter will be my primary choice for this pattern. You can also use a thin nail brush if you couldnt find the color you like in the tip painter nail polish.

29  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Nail Art Sticker Creation on: October 16, 2011 09:36:53 AM
I am sure you all heard or know about the super easy nail art stick that creates perfectly professional result. Today Im going to show you a tutorial about how to use them to achieve an elegant set of nails and what you should be aware of during or after the creation process.

My post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/nail-art/nail-art-sticker-creation-tips

The purpose of this tutorial is to share my personal experience about using nail sticker in nail design. This product is for lazy artists (like me) and also beginners. With the help of this genies product, we can now all do complicated design in literally minutes. Like this tutorial took only 5 minutes to complete and it cost less than a dollar for the sticker set.

You can easily purchase these nail art stickers in department store, make up shops and even drug store or supermarkets make up sections. Like a lot of tattoo sticker, they come in a great amount of selection in designs and styles. The cost for a set of stickers can range from $1-5. Definitely a much affordable choice compare to getting a basic manicure in a cheap nail salon.

I got a huge Konad stamp set for my birthday and am mad in love with it.  Do you have trouble using certain plates?  I have one that has a peacock an the Space Needle on it, and I can't get either of those to stamp.  Any suggestions?

did you peel the plastic protector off? coz i try using the stamps in the beginning and it doesn't work, turn out i forgot to peel the plastic.

if it still doesn't work you might have to order a new plate or just skip it. i guess some plates' image just wasn't deep enough to hold the polish. i have abt 30 plates so far and all of them work
