Nail Art: Parabola

Another Tool inspired manicure. This time by the songs Parabol and Parabola :D

It kinda looks like shooting stars... lol Sorry for the crappy photos, it's really hard to capture chrome/holo/silver all at the same time while the sun is setting :)

For this bundle of joy I used:
1. Two coats of OPI Black Onyx.

2. Used Devotion with a Konad tip design (will find out which when I get back home)

3. Used OPI's DS Shimmer over three quarters of the tip. I was going to use Sexagon instead but I tried both over blakc and Sexagon is much more dense.

4. Stamped little umbrellas on the right side of each nail. I was a little unhappy with some of the results as you could totally see that it was an umbrella... so...

5. Used that lovely swirly design right on the edge of my nails, covering the spikes of the umbrella!

6. Applied little stars with some top coat, then applied top coat over the whole nail n_n

And here is the awesome video of Parabola, the song doesn't start until 1:05 :D 


  1. I need a good black polish in my collection. The one I have isn't a "true black". It's kinda grayish-black. I think a black creme polish is in order.

    I am so jelly of all of the perfect konads I see in the nail blogosphere. Mine won't act right at all!

  2. Good Content.

    Today while I was surfing the Internet, I came across several interesting articles talking about UV nail lamps and how to use them with gel nail application. I also happened to visit this site Gel-Nails and found amazing variety of UV lamps in American and European style. Some of these lamps also have a timer and a digital display which I think is really cool. And what’s best above all is the super discount that you can get which is 50% and more also for most of the products.

    I guess this is a great offer to grab as there is free global shipping also over a minimum purchase order. So if you are looking out to save money after having spent on gel nails, then check out the great offers here. Maybe you may find much more than what you are looking for as I did.

  3. wow that's great!!! LOVE it! just like the tool mani - awesome :D

  4. WOW you get better and better each time! Still waiting for that 'Tool' tutorial :0)~
