Art Galleries

Kudat

Visit to G Wonder Khayalan Home Art Gallery, it’s owned by a local Sabahan artist named Jainal Amambing, an award winning artist in domestic & international

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

It’s also known as The Ugliest Home Art Gallery in North Borneo by the artist owner himself

Hmm…Whyโ“โ‰๏ธ

Mr Jainal believes in finding art in imperfect things surrounding his life. So, he always love to portray the ugliest things from materials eg. The inner part of the Pokok Berlian, instead of the smooth tree trunk. To him, all things are art in different perspectives

Personally to SiennyLovesDrawing, this actually is a natural real look of an art gallery with the real art space of Mr Jainal to producing & exhibiting his art masterpieces & creative ideas

Absolutely an inspiring amazing gallery visit here. In fact, almost every corner in this home gallery is an instagrammable spot, highly recommended ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

DIY nail artย 

It was a lovely morning spending time with friends in a workshop to learn more about nail care & nail art!

As you know SiennyLovesDrawing loves manicure ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป & nail art ๐Ÿ˜

This is the Malaysia’s 1st DIY nail studio, with all nail care, nail polishes, tools & equipment ready for you to enjoy your own creativity in having your own DIY manicure & art done ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing’ favourite nail shape is oval ๐Ÿฅš

Hmm…perhaps will explore for other shapes then ๐Ÿ˜‰

SiennyLovesDrawing just realises there are so many different ways of filing nails…hmm…all these while she doesn’t really paid attention when she paid & enjoyed her me time at nail studio though

Ha…Ha…after her attendance to this workshop, she learns much more ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Yeah! Really love โค๏ธthis simple nail moisturiser to take care of nail bed especially ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

According to the nail expert, Ms. Dorothy to have beautiful nails not just the nail art ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿปdone externally, it requires consistent nail care & moisture to nail bed too

SiennyLovesDrawing learnt from the workshop that this overnight nail serum contains moisture & nutrient rich extracts for intense nail & cuticle restoration. This brush-on, luxurious formula, featuring a blend of black orchid, aรงai & algae actives & humectants, helps hydrate & rejuvenate severely dry/ weak nails. This lightweight, serum formula leaves nails ready for rest & repair, then to stronger, replenished & healthier looking nails & cuticles.

SiennyLovesDrawing sets to apply it every night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒbefore her sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ค as night nail spa since she loves manicure ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป

Very simple to apply this nail moisture named Moisture Rehab by Sally Hansen from USA

Just apply it on each nail bed, then massage it throughout. Love the mild fragrance of this Moisture Rehab

SiennyLovesDrawing also learnt how to do water decal as her nail art

It’s just so so simple & easy as shown in the collage of photos above

  1. Cut out the water decal sticker & soak into clear water ๐Ÿ’ฆ for about 2 seconds
  2. Remove the water decal from the sticker sheet
  3. Clip & then put on the water decal on your nail bed
  4. Adjust the position of the water decal on your nail bed
  5. Lastly, apply top coat on your nail with water decal to finish your nail art

SiennyLovesDrawing enjoys the simple & easy step by step in her DIY nail care & nail art.

Sharing her 7 steps of having her own DIY beautiful manicure ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป & nail art done from this workshop ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

Really enjoyable! Highly recommended by SiennyLovesDrawing!

She truly enjoyed & satisfied with her DIY nail art!
