How do you beat the summer heat Filipino style? ICE CANDY!!! My niece made a batch and I couldn’t be more happier! Nom nom nom!!
The camera did not satisfy the real color of this polish. It is Blue Green! Candy color polish! :)
Minox DCC 5 MegaPixel camera has turned a year! I got it delivered at my fiance’s place and he brought it over for christmas in 2010. Everybody notices the little critter when it is hanging around my neck. Its like a pendant only supersized. :D
And because I don’t feel right when my nail polish is chipped, I had to apply a new polish. This polish is - believe it or not - a one coater!! :) some korean nail polish named Nail Up which claims to be an “Enviromental Polish”. Good consistency and brush is decent. Awesome. Im going back to get more!! :) 150php only for a bottle! Now I feel bad ordering some 16 shades of China Glaze. I wish I knew of this sooner!!
Ring finger on last week’s color! :)
I recently saw a blog about matte polish sold locally so I headed to the shop to get some. I only knew about the matte top coat from China Glaze or Orly, etc.. to make the polish look matte or matte polish made in the US. I never knew we had them here (Given that I was out of the country for 9 months, I was hella clueless!)
I went to Etude House to get the matte polish for 98php but most of the colors were sold out so I managed to get a purple/muddy color (but I liked) it from the deck and went to get falsies (for an upcoming wedding event) and paid on the spot!
I applied it on before going out with my friend to finish up the program for her sister’s wedding, since I was waiting for them to pick me up, I decided to put this polish since I heard it dries fast. It did work! It was dry in more or less 10 minutes!
And now for the comments:
Formula: it is pretty good! Didn’t give me any problems applying the polish. I thought it was going to be clumpy but not at all! I had two coats on both hands.
Brush: I am not really particular with brushes so it works for me. Wide brushes are awesome but I can work with what it has :)
First impression: hated it. It looked bumpy and muddy and dull. Hated it.
After a while: I LOVED IT. Bumpyness subsided and looked flat on my nails. It looks so low profile and you had to look to notice it. Awesome.
I also kindda figured out why my cracked polish dried out grayish. I had top coat on my bluegreen polish when I applied it on top of it and It may be the cause. I applied the cracked polish to my ring finger without top coat after the base color and it dried as black and as I expected it to be.
Cheap awesome nail polishes! WIN!
I am trying out this black cracking polish I bought yesterday from Nail Up in Trinoma and put it on top of my current polish just coz I will change my polish in a few days anyway! They sell korean nail polishes at affordable rates (This cracking bottle was just 120Php. Ha!)
I got a hot pink glittery polish which I will be trying on this week and this black cracking polish.
And now for the comments:
I love the brush and the formula BUT! when it was drying up, it was grayish on some of the parts and looked like it dried too fast and had that blurry finish which I think made it look gray. If you look at the photo, its not entirely black on the whole nail which made me a little uneasy about it but I can manage. Im still going to use it and its still a steal for 120Php Im either going to say its black or gray LOL.
My week old polish and its second look! Bwaha!
I do my own nails. I have my base coat, my nail polishes and my newly discovered top coat that beats Seche Vite in my opinion. I recently acquired a trick to make them look nicer by not over flowing the polish onto my cuticles (which I do not remove.. I just moisturize them lol. I shall be pushing it next time for a cleaner look) and I am pleased with the result! My left and right hand looks equally awesome. Aaaah. The wonders of YouTube Tutorials ;)
(We even have a Master List care of Oyang Bwaha! Good job! LOL)
Love my college buddies forever! <3
Beef Salpicao Paella (Yum!!) from Casa Goñi at Mercato Centrale and Choco Milk Tea with Egg Pudding from Serenitea. Friday night grub with college buddies! :)
Mochi. I LOVE MOCHI!! I got this from Mercato Centrale and absolutely wanted to peel the outer layer and throw the ice cream out. LOL. Its a good combination but I can survive with the Mochi alone. Where the hell can I get Mochi? Help!! LOL
