Born Pretty Store Nail Art Studs

image

So I finally had the chance to update my blog! Hurrah! With all the work with the business, long drives to and from the province, plus I have a new furbaby, and not to mention the bad weather doing all sorts of crap with my internet connection. So, yeah.

Any who! Allison of Born Pretty Store sent me some items about some weeks ago, and I’d be sharing some nail artsy I made with them. I also included a quick tutorial on how I applied them.

First up, a wheel of gold, silver, and black studs in different sizes. You can see more after the jump! 🙂

Today I’ll be sharing random swatches of two Revlon nail polish from my untrieds, and I have a crazy ton of them. I don’t even know why I keep buying more when I have two storage boxes crammed with pretties, practically begging me to swatch them already. 😀

The Face Shop – Yogurt Nails Collection

image

Oh, haiii. I’m here again. I have here another collection to share to you. This is the “Yogurt Nails” collection from The Face Shop. I originally got the yellow one first for P185, more or less $4. One look at it, and I fell in love! So of course I have to get the whole collection, good thing the TFS store near my place restocked their polishes so I got the other bottles. And get this, I got them at P150 a piece. I think the ladies at the store got the prices mixed up on my earlier purchase coz apparently they charged me more than they should have. The outlet I’m pertaining to is at Robinson’s Galleria.

Anyway, here are the swatches now. Enjoy! 🙂

I’m back!!

image

Well, okay, not really. But at least I’m here now. Everything’s still not okay, but will get there, eventually…

Anyhow, in case I didn’t tell you (which I think I really didn’t), I finally caved in and made a Facebook page not long ago. Well, it’s still under construction, and not as updated as my Instagram page, but I’m trying.

So pop by and say hey! Feel free to like/follow either/both account/s. I’d appreciate it.

As for here, I have some draft posts which I’ll be posting later today or, haha, whenever I get the “talking vibe” again.

So, again, thank you for sticking around!

Floral – May Nail Art Challenge

image

My take on the theme floral for May nail art challenge. Fun and easy flower nail art, all I used was the polish brush itself. Well, except for the black stripes that is. This mani was inspired by @jamylyn_nails on IG. 🙂

I gave watercolor mani another try. Honestly, I didn’t really liked the outcome of my first attempt with it, which was the one I did for the mint theme of April nail art challenge.

Swatch – OMG Banana boat

image

Re-swatch of OMG (Oh My Golly) nail colors in Banana Boat.

Kind of really reminds me of banana, the fruit. Not the inflatable boat. I’ve ridden in one, and I hate it. Okay not really, but I hate the feeling of drowning it made me feel when I was thrown out of the boat. So anyway, this polish makes me want to get some ice cream and make a banana split. Yum!

Match OOTD – April Nail Art Challenge

image

Okaaay, so yeah, I’ve been away and hadn’t posted anything for ages. One, didn’t feel like talking (typing) much, and two, self issues. Or I think that’s just the same thing. So any who, I’m here now. 🙂 And I have more than a dozen (again) draft posts, in which I’ll be posting all today, or tomorrow, as best I could. But anyway I update my Instagram (almost) daily, probably coz I can just post there straight from my phone. So if you wanna find me there…

So let’s get started then. Here’s a mani I did for the April nail art challenge, matching OOTD (Outfit of the day). Though I was just staying home and my outfit was just tank top and shorts, so nothing really fab, I still managed to be inspired somehow by the shorts I was wearing. Lol
