Flowers for the Trip

Still continuing from my trip to Malaysia.. this are my nails for the trip.. SOOOOOoooo Sorry about the sad sad nails.. my fingers are terribly dry.. and the polish remover didn't help. I never did adhere to a strict hydrating routine for my hands.. 

So, this is my mani. My background is done with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, In My Back Pocket, Did It On Em' and Charged Up Cherry. The flowers are China Glaze Flyin' High and Kalahari Kiss.

Holiday Trip to KL, Malaysia + Haul

I'll make it short..if my posts can get any shorter. Sometimes I feel like I'm using this space to post pictures and keep track of what I have done. Still..it's something I guess. 

Haul from various shops, including, TheFaceShop, Elianto, HolikaHolika. All 3 shops are from Korea. I saw plenty fake OPI there.. Too bad I didn't take a photo to put it here. 


My little sis hands.. This is done with TheFaceShop GR501, China Glaze Flyin' High and Lemon Fizz, OPI Pandamonium Pink. Note: I know her nails sucks and I didn't know why she cut her nails this way. It's too bad to be salvaged. 


My sis hands. I have 2 sisters. One 3 yrs younger than me, and the other 10 years younger. This is done with OPI Pandamonium Pink, Alpine Snow for the Background. The roses are Rainbow11 and OPI Charged Up Cherry. The leaves are Essie, Mojito Madness. 


These nails pleased my sisters to no end.. and my family as well. Lol.

Lord Of The Ring: One Ring

What with the buzz over The Hobbit, I thought I'd take this chance to do some nail art!! And I'm so pleased with myself. Haha. Lol. I pretty much spent the many hours drooling over my nails and stroking my own ego. 

I saw The Nailasaurus doing something like that so I guess that stuck with me. Well, can you fault me? I'm a HUGE fan of J.R.R. Tolkien. I've read the books many times and the new movie just put me in such a excited frenzy. I almost wish the movie never ends, that way I could stay in that world forever.

And, after watching The Hobbit, my bf and I did a marathon of Lord of the Rings last Saturday, of course. It's practically the thing to do. 


The gold is China Glaze Passion, an opaque gold that is extremely useful in going over the words to make it finer. The black is China Glaze Liquid Leather. 



What do you think?? I almost didn't want to do this because it was too challenging, but in the end, it was worth it! Took me two hours though, I think.

Sonnetarium After The Rain

My two bottles of Sonnetarium came from MeiMei'sSignature some time ago. I swatched it a while ago but did not have the time to put it here. So here it is. This is After the Rain. My other bottle is Peppermint Kiss. I hadn't swatch it yet. 

I put on 2 coats of OPI No Room For the Blues and 2 coats of After The Rain 




This last picture is blurred.. so sorry.. but u can still see the colored glitters and the white big/small/medium glitters in a medium blue base. 

Thanks for Dropping By!!

Winter Mani - SnowFlakes

This is my Winter mani. It was actually intended to be part of the Christmas designs.. but Christmas had gone by.. so this shall be a winter mani instead. My package from PrettynPolished came through so I grabbed one and slapped it on. The base is PnP The Young Hero, stamped over with China Glaze First Mate with a BM323. 



I'm rather pleased with this design so I went and did a collage.. -.- It feels rather kiddy. 


Thanks for Dropping BY!!!!!!!!

Reindeer and Snow!

Another Christmas Mani!! It's reindeer this time!! My background is OPI Alpine Snow, and the reindeer are  done with China Glaze Street Chic, and outlined with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I only painted one red nose, and that's with OPI The Spy who Loved Me. There's only one Rudolph after all!! 




Next, I did my sister's nails.. Sorry for the Lousy postures.. I tried my best and she tried her best, but.. the fingers refused to cooperate. I saw this tutorial from Kayla Shevonne and wanted to try them.. and my sister gladly obliged! 

I used OPI No Room for the Blues, Suzi says Fengshui, and China Glaze First Mate for the Blues, and OPI Alpine Snow for the white. 



Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Christmas: Dots and Stripes

Christmas IS Coming!!! Today's the second year anniversary of my relationship with my boyfriend.. So.. here's to wishing us forever and ever.. to ups and downs.. to laughter and tears.. and connected hearts. 


There's a ridge on my index finger but I filed it off after I realized how visible it is on photos. 

Done with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Wall as the background. I painted Rainbow 11 for the lines.. and a vary of greens for the dots from the Christmas trees. My index finger is OPI GoldenEye.

Green Zebra Stripes

I did zebra stripes some time ago, when I was trying OPI Green-wich Village. I painted the stripes on with a small brush with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I also painted a glitter topcoat from TheFaceShop to make it shine a little. My stripes were erratic though, but I'm rather fond of this.

Swatch: LushLacquer Party Rock

Can you tell that I'm trying to economize my swatches? I got so many new polishes so I basically matched new plain polish with glittered polish and wham.. more swatches! 

So this is Party Rock. This is easy to get the glitter out, as opposed to some of the LushLacquer polishes. I paired this with OPI Pedal Faster, Suzi! 

The pink is more accurate in the second picture than in the first picture. That's the best picture I got though.

Swatch: OPI Green-wich Village

On a side note: I've been eating tubs of popcorn. Like real homemade popcorn. It's healthier than chips that I'd been eating, so my boyfriend was willing to sponsor the popcorn. 

So, this OPI Green-wich Village looks brighter in real life than in the photos, but it really looks awesome in the photos and real life as well. This is 3 coats. I thought it was a jelly, but it is not. 




I got a load of PrettynPolished stuff. Terribly excited about it!! ^^

I'm pretty happy with the pictures for this swatch. Thanks for dropping by!!
