Today is going to be a.. shenanigans post!
What do you mean shenanigans post? Well.. it'll be a little polish related i promise, but also about some new products that i've been using and random things that i've been up to. So.. let's begin...!

A couple weeks ago before i started my nailventure i got into korean dramas.. and i shamelessly admit i am so not over them! Before i left perth i had my other half download Love Rain for me because the website that i used to stream korean dramas from shut down.. yes i was quite devastated and seriously.. i've watched this series over 14 times easily! It's absolutely adorable! It's set in the seventies and the present day, telling a heartrending love story over two generations.

It's love at first sight when Seo In-ha (Jang Keun-suk) and Kim Yoon-hee (Im Yoona) meet as shy university students in the seventies. It takes time for the hesitant pair to finally voice their feelings, but circumstances beyond their control send them down different paths. In 2012, In-ha (Jung Jin-young) is now unhappily married to Baek Hye-jung, one of Yoon-hee's former best friends. He has never gotten over his first love, and when he runs into Yoon-hee (Lee Mi-sook) after so many years, the two reconcile and look forward to making up for lost time.
In-ha's son Seo Joon (Jang Keun-suk) is a photographer, and he bumps into Yoon-hee's daughter Jung Ha-na (Im Yoona) by chance. Unlike her mother, Ha-na is a cheerful and vivacious girl, and though they initially find each other troublesome, even as they argue, they can't help but be drawn to each other. Gradually their feelings develop, and Joon and Ha-na fall in love.
Unaware that their children are dating each other, In-ha and Yoon-hee announce that they are getting married, which will make Joon and Ha-na step-siblings. As both couples deal with the shock, Joon and Ha-na struggle with sacrificing their love for their parents' long-aborted happiness.

Seriously, if you haven't seen it, get to your nearest computer and download it! Especially if you're into korean dramas and you for some reason haven't seen this yet!

In midst of my korean obsession i've researched their beauty secrets! It's obscene what flawless skin they have! It's so clear and smoothe! 
Of course they have a whole routine and list of products that they used but one thing i found interesting was the paper face masks that they use, so i thought i'd give it a go!

I saw this in a korean beauty store in Town Hall and thought I'd try it. I have very dry and sensitive skin so i opted for something hydrating. This bad boy was not cheap. for $6 AUD you get the one mask and it comes with a serum that you apply after cleansing and before you put the mask on. The application was really easy and it felt really soothing to the skin.. i'll keep at it for a few more weeks before deciding how much i like it.

Now to the polish related part..!

TAADAA* Smudged polish's TURDLINGS! 3 thin coats with a matte top coat! I know i had a swatch of these quite recently, but i loved it so much i just wanted to wear it again. Hopefully they'll last me for the next few days.. i have a handful of assignments coming up and due in the next few weeks so i hope to find time to polish. 

Oh.. so we finally booked my Singapore flight! I leave October 17th and come back the 24th. Still a little.. nervous about the whole trip and still worrying about having a mental breakdown when i get there, but i can do this! Good memories! New memories! *fighting!*
