my very first Femme Fatale Nail Polish! :D

the boy knew that i had been eyeing these bad boys for weeks now. and when they had a reopening sale he surprised me with them. feel very spoilt and... hysterical about trying them!

This one is Gilded Rose. one of three of the Valentines Day collection. 2 dabbed coats swatched over OPI Barefoot In Barcelona. no fishing required for the glitters.. with the exception of the stars. even with one coat it was a glitter bomb.. but for the sake of being over the top with everything ( :P ) i decided to do two.. plus, this way the glitter shows much more

can't wait to share the remaining 5 that i have in the next couple of weeks (if there's anyone reading this at all ♥)

here kitty kitty

for the record... just because you put a pink bow on something that looks like a cat... doesn't make it Hello Kitty... xD

i truly don't know what i was thinking when i did this manicure.. i wanted to have a light color base because it felt a little more summery... but i don't know where to begin if i had to explain how i came up with this inspiration hahahahaha..

i used Ciate Strawberry Milkshake... (mind you was a complete nightmare to apply.. it was thick.. but it left lots of streak marks and in the picture there's about 3 coats of it) OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips for the bow. SinfulColors Snow Me White for the cat. BYS Black Satin for the eyes and whiskers and BYS Lucky Ducky for the nose.

needless to say this manicure didn't stay on for very long hahahaha. i didn't even bother trying my right hand. can only imagine what kind of a shit show that would have been :D

something asian...

these suckers were probably one of the hardest nailarts i've ever done. as simple as it looks i really don't know these nail artists do such perfect dots and all the same size mind you! i've heard of tricks as using a tooth pick or a tiny dotting tool... or the obvious to.. practice makes perfect.. yeah no.. my hand spasms were unforgiving once again...

for this manicure i used BYS Lucky Ducky and Baby Lets Cruise for the base colors. and BYS Black Satin and SinfulColors Snow Me White for the pandas.

if anyone has.. some kind of trick... or... way to make the dots look even and less tragic looking please don't hesitate to teach this noob... because i just can't seem to get the hang of it.

hope everyone had a great weekend!

this has to be one of my most favourite nailarts i've ever done.

something fruity...

my poor attempt at watermelon nail art :P

i used.. Laced Up by China Glaze. Roller Coaster by BYS. Snow Me White by SinfulColors. and Black Satin by BYS.

for fun and games.. i had the boy do my right hand.. cause i randomly had massive hand spasms and felt like i had parkinsons...

as you can see.. it did not end well... hahahahhaha i think i might as well have done it myself even with the hand spasms xD

food and nails.. those are a few of my favorite things...

nails of the day :)

i used Smooth Sailing by Essie and Out Of This World by SinfulColors

Kaylen's 3rd Birthday :D

hahahaha.. this was the best picture i could take of her... if her face was pointed at the camera.. her eyes would be else where.. or her hands or body were moving..  such a fidgter

and her adorable baby brother Kegan

(i don't know what's with parents and naming their kids something-gan lately.. whether it be Hayden, Kegan, Tayden, Aeden, etc...)

--i thought we were going to be at the party forever.. we were there from 1030 in the morning and didn't get home till about 1600... kids were running around screaming their heads off playing in the play pen.. and the crowd was needless to say all married with children.. absolutely no eye candy.. (hahahaha there wasn't even a single mom there)

i finally got to use my new BRTC BBcream! i absolutely loved the texture it gave my face.. only thing is.. it's a very light shade for my skin during the summer.. needless to say i am very glad i bought this and will be using it for a while to come.

i want to look like the pretty girl in the magazine

another scorcher 42 degrees today.. spent the entire morning making cantaloupe ice cream and baking a manhattan cheesecake for Jin's official birthday tomorrow..

thought i'd have some sylvie time and painted my nails seeing as my black gradient nails were already starting to chip.. and seriously.. glitter polish... absolute nightmare to remove... every time i have to go and remove it.. i always tell myself.. never again... yet low and behold.. what do i do the next time i decide to paint my nails?! more glitter...

fortunately not so much this manicure...

--half way through this manicure i was so regretting having not used magic tape for the sides of my fingers realising it'd take a good 10-15 minutes or so just cleaning the sides up.

for this manicure i used.. Lucky Ducky from BYS. Sweetpea from Astralis. Easy Going from SinfulColors and Speck-tacular from Australis for the holographic glitter top coat.

seeing as my first trial of these nailart gems was a fail.. i thought i'd be stubborn and try again.. but something tells me they won't last till my second shower hahahha

after i had finished painting my nails.. i hear a knock on the door...

BEST CARE PACKAGE EVER! my very first nail mail from my dear friend Ely who lives in Atlanta, Georgia! i've been absolutely itching to try out the new polishes i received.. but seeing as i literally JUST finished painting my nails and they've barely dried.. i'm trying to hold out :P

a couple months ago.. i did a post about BBcream.. and i had tried the Garnier BBcream.. when i had first used it.. it looked pretty.. but my skin felt really irritable and itchy afterwards.. someone had told me that it was because my skin was dry.. so try to lather up on moisturiser before applying the BBcream.. i tried this 2 maybe 3 more times.. and it didn't really help my cause and still made my skin feel itchy. not to mention it didn't match my skin tone and ended up making me look like i had a reddish tint on my face... so i did some research and youtube stalking.. and came across a BRTC BBcream.. apparently it's one of the most widely sold BBcreams in korea.. so of course...

woahoo* i'm going to look just like the pretty korean pop girls now! all i need is to cut my eyes... glue me on some fake eye lashes and lose about 20 pounds and i'm straight! hahahaha... obviously need more work than that.. but i'm very excited to try it tonight when i finally get to go on my traditional tight ass tuesdays waffle date night :D

refried beans and glitter.. what?

nails inspired by Darcy :)

i ordered nail art gems online over a month and a half ago and they finally arrived this morning so i thought i'd give them a try!

usually you'd be able to stick them on using clear polish.. but to my dismay they fell off after i showered... i'm thinking nail glue is the way to go.. so that they stay on a little longer...

so this is what's left after i patched up the holes with glitter :)

Pancho's Mexican Restaurant. celebrating Jin's birthday

oh how i've missed you spanish food :D

spot me some pink

my fingers look like i just fingered Barbie...

--i really don't know how people get their dots to be in such perfect unison.. i obviously still need a lot of practice..

OPI - Kiss Me On My Tulips
OPI - Pedal Faster Suzi
Sinful Colors - Easy Going
Butter London - Lovely Jubbly

got an amazing package in the mail today...

awesome mail from my sister from another mister in sydney ♥
i was absolutely hysterical when i tore open the wrapping.. and so excited when i finally found out what it was.. because they're almost impossible to find in this junk ass country and most stores online don't ship to australia.. not to mention rage from about 30 bucks a pop... but now.. i don't wan't to use it because i'm scared it'd run out.. ugh.. hahaha.. will probably save it for a super special occasion ^_^

welcoming the new year

Ginger Night Club :)

--it was about 38 degrees that night. and it took me about 45 minutes to get my face ready.. and it melted off in about 15 minutes after getting to the club.. not to mention my curls were pretty much nonexistent by the time i got home =="

hope everyone had an epic start to the new year! :D
