Asian Inspired Nail Art


In a previous post, I said that I would try some nail art on top of Color Club -Untamed Luxury nail polish. Well...

Here it is :)

I stamped random designs from plates A52 & A58 using kleancolor - Metallic Yellow. It is not very visible in the picture. I used the stamp to add some dimension and hint of gold to the nail art. After that, I put on nail stickers with white flower and gold design.

I went to class with this nail art and some of my classmates loved this design and told me my nails looked Asian inspired.

What do you think about this nail art?

*For those wondering about my giveaway winners...I will announce them this Monday, Feb. 27. Stay Tuned ;)

Color Club - Untamed Luxury

Hello Dear Readers!

Today I want to show you swatches from another nail polish I bought in a blog sale, Untamed Luxury by Color Club.

Anastacia from My MakeUp Mania, asked me for a swatch of this nail polish. I thought it would take longer to fulfill this request, but this time. I decided to wear a nail polish color that I never worn before. Yes, it is the first time for me to wear a teal, blue-green color.

Pictures can be enlarged

This nail polish was a little bit thick and this made it difficult to apply. As you can see, it dries matte with a gritty, sand paper texture...

but topcoat did the magic and gave it shine and took out the grittiness.

A close up picture.

I will do some nail art on top of this nail color ;)

Sally Hansen - Blush Diamond Holographic


I want to show you swatches of one of the nail polishes I bought in a blog sale I posted earlier.
I was able to get two bottles of Sally Hansen Nail Prisms in Blush Diamond. The bottles are slightly used but I don't mind because it is such a gorgeous dusty pink holo.

 Pictures can be enlarged.

It took two coats to achieve this opacity.

Look the holographic shine in the bottle:

An extra pic.

Do you own any of the holos from Sally Hansen Nail Prisms?

♥Thank you for reading♥

Blog Sale Nail Polish Haul

Hello dears!

I have been into shopping for nail polish from blog sales recently because I have not had time to go out shopping.

What I like about blog sales is that I can find brand name nail polishes at very affordable prices. Some nail polishes are brand new, swatches or used for a manicure or two but I don't really care as long as the condition is described accordingly. I'm very happy with these purchases, the blogger I bought from were very nice and some including extra gifts.

Here is what I have bought from different sellers during these past weeks:

From left to right: Color Club- Tru Passion, Untamed Luxury and Worth the Risque. China Glaze - Custom Kicks, It's Poppin', Tinsel and Zombie Zest.

Zoya - Astra, Kristen, Gigi and Luna. Orly - Pixie Dust, Prince Charming, Mirror Mirror and Rage.

Icing - Golden Rule, Cosmetic Arts - unnamed bottle, Funky Fingers - unnamed bottle, SH Nail Prisms - Blush Diamond (x2), Ruby Diamond. OPI Nic's Sticks - Silverella (x2)

Milani - Enchantment, Garnet Gems, Fairy tale, OPI - You Don't Know Jacques, Wet n' Wild - Gray's Anatomy, Sally Hansen - Rockstar Pink, Maybelline - Pie in the Sky, Savvy - Prince Ala Charm.

I also bought a big bottle of Solar Oil to pamper my nails.

I hope you had a nice weekend!

Versatile Blogger Award + Nail Polish Tag

Hello dear readers!

I was awarded with the Versatile Blogger Award and the Nail Polish Tag. I think the idea of giving awards or tags is a great one. It is good way of getting to know fellow bloggers.

7 random facts about me:
1. I love cats. My love for cats started when a street cat left her newborn male kitten on my door. She looked at me straight in the eyes as if saying "I want you to take care of my baby". I took care of this kitten and let the mom enter my home to feed her baby.
2. I'm a university student majoring in Spanish. One of my dreams would be teaching Spanish in Japan.
3. Besides Japan, San Francisco, California is my dream place to live. I think it is a very artistic city.
4. I love to stay up late at night. I don't know why. I always find more things to do at night than during the day.
5. I love watching Japanese dorama (soap opera).
6. I cut my nails short in August of last year and I have not cut them since then. Currently, my nails are an average of 2.7cm long.
