Blue Crelly and Multi Glitter Accent

Monday, July 24, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I booked an appointment at a hair salon this Wednesday for a hair cut so I'm excited for that. My hair isn't super long but its getting there so I can't wait to get it cut a bit shorter. I might be coloring my hair too but I'm still undecided. If I do get it colored, I'm only getting highlights just to start out with since I've never dyed my hair before. Anyways, let's see the nail art.

Blue Crelly and Multi Glitter Accent Nail Art

First, I used China Glaze Ray-diant on my ring and middle nail. Next, I used Black Dahlia Lacquer Heavenly Blue for the rest of the nails. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I was feeling a bit lazy this day so I just did a pretty simple manicure. Usually when I do my nails, I usually go for simple manicures like this though. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Partner

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your partner. I wasn't able to do this theme since I don't have a partner so instead, I'm just sharing a simple summer skittle manicure.

Summer Neon Skittle Nail Art

Starting with my pinky, I used American Apparel Neon Yellow, American Apparel Neon Orange, American Apparel Neon Coral, American Apparel Neon Green, and American Apparel Neon Blue. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I used all American Apparel neon polishes since I thought they would look fun together as a skittle manicure. I also don't don't wear a lot of neons o having all these bright colors on my nails was fun. What do you think?

Purple Holo with Blue Abstract Floral Stamping

Monday, July 17, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I've been wanting to do some traveling this year or early next year so I've been doing some basic planning and researching. But before I finalize anything, I have to get a passport first. I've never traveled any where before other than Victoria two times so hopefully I can travel to another country soon. Anyways, let's see the nail art.

Purple Holo with Blue Abstract Floral Stamping

First, I used Layla Hologram Effect Nail Polish 04 Ultra Violet on all the nails. Next, I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 9# with stamping plate BP-L052 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Lastly, I finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at stamping plate BP-L052. I really like how each design is so detailed and big. This stamping plate would definitely work for someone with either short or long nails too.

I was pretty pleased with how these turned out. I tried my best to get the image stamped as straight as I could on the nails and I think I did a pretty good job in the end. What do you think?

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #21 Pink Sprinkling

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a quick polish swatch to share today so let's get right into it.

Dearberry Today Nail Lacquer #21 Pink Sprinkling is a bright pinky red creme. I got this polish from purchasing a Memebox a while back in a color themed box. I love a good creme polish and this one was pretty great. The formula was good and the application was smooth. I like that the brush on the polish is the wider flat type too. If Dearberry was available to me more readily, I would totally pick up some more colors since I enjoy the colors I already own. This is two coats.

This color is also perfect to wear during the warmer season of Spring and Summer too. The color isn't all that unique but the great formula and application on it makes it a pretty great polish for me. What do you think?

Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Rio

Monday, July 10, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! The weather has been warm but its not too hot every day which is good. I had a nice birthday so thank you everyone for the well wishes. As I'm getting older, one of my main things I want to do is travel so I'm going to start planning a trip for next year at least. Anya's, let's see today's polish.

Nostalgic Nail Lacquer Rio has a mix of blue and purple hexagon glitters with small holographic grey glitters in a clear base. I really like the mix of colors and the two different sizes of hexagon glitters in this polish. I found the polish to be very clear base heavy so I really had to apply a thick coat to get a good glitter coverage on the nails. Over than that, application on it was good for me. I did use a little of the dabbing method to get some glitters placed where I wanted it to be on the nails though. This is two coats over Nicole by OPI Alex By The Books.

I love the look of this glitter polish but wished it wasn't so clear base heavy. I think I'll probably try sponging the glitter on next time to avoid the bubbling from happening too. What do you think?

June 2017 Product Empties

Thursday, July 6, 2017

Here's my product empties for June. I was sad to see some things go but overall, I was pretty happy with what I was able to empty out. Let's see the products and what I thought of them then.

June 2017 Product Empties

1. Hello Everybody Nature Holic Body Lotion - Milk
This was my daily body moisturizer that I was currently using these past few months. I really liked it a lot too. It didn't have much of a scent to it and it was very hydrating on my skin. I like the packaging of it and it lasted me quite a while too. This would be something I would repurchase.

2. LadyKin Broccoli Extract 90% Essence Toner
This was the toner I was currently using and I really liked it a lot. Its suppose to moisturize and sooth the skin while providing a whitening effect. I didn't notice much whitening happening but I did like how these toner made my skin feel. This toner absorbed really quickly into the skin and helped to prep my skin for the rest of my skincare routine. I would totally repurchase another bottle too.

3. amie Radiant Dawn Exfoliating Daily Wash
This was my morning cleanser that I was using. I really enjoyed it too. I won this product in a giveaway and was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked it. It has exfoliating beads in it so I felt like it was really giving my skin a thorough cleanse. Definitely a product I would consider purchasing.

4. Rosemoon Rich 53% Collagen Smart Balm
This was my morning moisturizer that I was using. I felt like kept the skin hydrated throughout the day when I had it on. Since I do have dry skin, I liked this cream quite a lot because. The scent is a faint fresh smell which I like too.

5. Neutrogena All-inOne Make-up Removing Cleansing Wipes
These are makeup wipes that removes all types of face, lip, and eye makeup. I don't wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis so I thought these did an okay job removing what makeup I have on. The cloths themselves weren't very moist so I found them a little on the dry side. Since it was on the dry side, I found myself having to really rub my skin to get the makeup off which I didn't like. Probably not something I would buy a full size of.

That's all for my product empties for June. I'm most sad to see the toner gone but hopefully after I used up all the other skincare products I have, I can purchase another bottle of it since I did really enjoy it. Let me know what you've emptied out this month too.

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Childhood

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your childhood. When I was younger, my favorite color was pink so I wanted to do an all pink manicure. Today is also my birthday! I don't have much planned for the day though since I have work but I have the next two days off so I might go shopping and treat myself to something. Anyways, let's see the manicure.

Pink Stripes Nail Art

I used Hard Candy Little Bo Pink on all the nails. I placed two pieces of 3mm striping tape from Born Pretty Store on each nail and painted OPI Pink Friday on top. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Before the polish fully dried, I peeled the striping tape off. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I've been really into stripes lately so I was very happy with how these nails turned out. I love the look of the thicker stripes by using some thicker strips of striping tape too. What do you think?

MisQs Kaya Nail Polish GR001

Monday, July 3, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I can't believe its already July and that the year is halfway over. Its actually my birthday tomorrow so I'm happy about that even though I'm getting older. I do have work on my birthday but after that, I have two days off which is great so I'm planning to go out to do some shopping. Anyways, let's see the polish I'm sharing today.

MisQs Kaya Nail Polish GR001 is a bright turquoise blue creme. I don't know why, but my pictures of it makes it look like a sky blue which it isn't. Its definitely a more true vibrant turquoise color in real life so I'm sorry that my pictures aren't really showing how the polish really looks like. I really like this color and I have worn this polish several times already too. From all the MisQs polishes that I have, this is probably one of my favorites from the brand. Formula and application was great on it as well. This is two coats.

I'm a big fan of this color so I'm happy to have it in my collection. I also love good creme polishes which this totally is. What do you think?

GlassesShop.com Eyeglasses Review

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a pair of sunglasses to review for you all that I received from GlassesShop.com. GlassesShop.com is an online prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses website that has a nice selection of eye wear at pretty affordable prices. Anyways, let's see the pair of sunglasses I'm reviewing today then.

GlassesShop.com Eyeglasses Review - Vancouver Aviator

Packaging 
When I received the sunglasses, it was shipped inside a small rectangle cardboard box. Inside, the sunglasses came in its own clear plastic case along with a coupon code for a discount off my next order from them. I like that the sunglasses case is clear since this allows me to see what is inside. There is also a nice star like pattern all over the case which makes it a bit more prettier. The case closes shut securely and I feel like the case will protect my sunglasses inside well when I have this in my bag or something. Inside the case is the sunglasses and a cloth to clean the lenses with. Overall, I'm happy with how everything was packaged and presented to me.

The Sunglasses
I choose a pair of sunglasses to review because since summer is here, I wanted some new sunglasses to wear. They offer a nice selection of sunglasses on their website so I had a hard time choosing one but I finally did after much thinking. The sunglasses I choose was the Vancouver Aviator and they retail for $34.95. I really like the look of these sunglasses and have never owned a pair of aviators too so I wanted to give them a try. The sunglasses itself was a lot lighter than I expected which I don't mind since they won't be heavy when I have them on. They fit me well and I really like how they look on me. I feel like the sunglasses was nicely made and the quality is good considering the price on them.

This was my first experience working with GlassesShop.com and I really enjoyed it. Their communication was quick and friendly and I received my sunglasses a little over a week which is fast considering it was shipped from China. The Vancouver Aviator sunglasses I received was nicely made and it was pretty stylish too. The pictures of my sunglasses on their website was pretty accurate to what I received in real life as well.

Final Thoughts
Overall, if your looking for some affordable eyeglasses online, I definitely recommend you to check out GlassesShop.com. They have a nice selection of eye wear for you to choose from and their prices are very reasonable too. Shipping time was pretty quick and their customer service was great.

Shimmery Red with Dark Blue Tribal Inspired Stamping

Monday, June 26, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! The weather for the past week and this week has been so hot. Yesterday in particular was probably one of the hottest days so far that it was a little hard to sleep at night. Hopefully, the summer will pass by fast for me since I'm not a fan of this hot weather but in the mean time let's see today's nail art.

Shimmery Red with Dark Blue Tribal Inspired Stamping Nail Art

I used Orly Emberstone on all the nails. I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 7# with stamping plate BP-L054 from Born Pretty Store. To stamp, I used a new Clear Silicone Stamper from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at stamping plate BP-L054 and the Clear Silicone Stamper. I'm liking all the designs included in stamping plate and the Clear Silicone Stamper will make it so much easier for me to pick up larger images too.

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Job

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your job. I'm currently working as a bakery assistant at a bakery. I decided to look through my stamping plates to try to find a bakery looking design so here's what I came up with.

Purple Bakery Inspired Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Funky Fingers Jawbreaker on all the nails. Next, I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 23# with stamping plate BP-L023 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Lastly, I finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I thought these turned out pretty cute. I wanted to try stamping over a crelly polish this time since I haven't done it in a while and I thought the result was good. The stamping is subtle which I don't really mind here. What do you think?

Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans

Monday, June 19, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I've been really liking the weather this past week since its been on the cooler side. For some reason, I've been feeling a lot more tired lately too but I think its because I'm working full time and only have two days off each week. Hopefully, my energy will get back up soon. Anyways, let's see the blue polish I'm sharing today.

Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans is a teal with a lighter green shimmer running through it. This color is so hard to describe but I think the lighter green shimmer in it makes it a little bit more unique over the normal shimmery teal polishes out there. The formula and application was great on this polish. I also like the brush on the Sephora by OPI polishes too since its on the wider side which makes application much more easier for me. This is two coats.

I really enjoy the look of this polish and I really should wear it on my nails more often. Its a nice color and I'm happy to own it. What do you think?

MisQs Kaya Nail Polish SP002

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a quick polish swatch to share today so let's see the color then.

MisQs Kaya Nail Polish SP002 is a bright peach creme. When I first saw this color, I knew I was really going to like it. On my nails, it definitely makes my hand look more tan than it really is. The formula was good but I did notice some patchy spots when applying the first coat. However, the second coat definitely smoothed everything out. I think this color would be perfect to wear during the warmer months of Spring and Summer. This is two coats.

I also think this polish would look really great as a pedicure color too. What do you think?

Red with Blue Glitter and White Faded Stamping

Monday, June 12, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! This weekend, my workplace had a karaoke night on Sunday. I didn't go to the last company outing but I was able to go to this one. I haven't really been to karaoke before so it was fun going to one and hearing others sing. Anyways, let's see today's nail art.

Red with Blue Glitter and White Faded Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Sephora by OPI I'm So Sari! on the ring, middle, and thumb nail. Next, I stamped with Milani White On The Spot with stamping plate BP-55 from Born Pretty Store. For the stamper, I used this new Born Pretty Christmas Nail Art Stamper. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. For the rest of the nails, I used Jessica Atomic Red. Finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at the Born Pretty Christmas Nail Art Stamper. After using this stamper for this manicure, I did find it hard to use. I did like the size of it though since it allows me to pick up larger images. The stampers I've used in the past have been more firm and less sticky than this one. I still need to practice using it because I found it very hard to pick up and transfer the image onto my nails as you can see in this manicure. Every time I tried to pick up the image, it would only partially get the design. I attempted multiple times and this was the best I could do.

I'm not too happy with how these turned out. I think I would have liked it a lot more if the stamping turned out better. I did try picking up the image with a more firmer stamper that I usually use afterwards and it picked up the design much better. If anyone has any tips on how to use this soft and sticky stamper, please let me know. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Zig Zags

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is zig zags. When I think of zig zags, I usually think of a chevron pattern so I went with that idea for the design on my nails. I have some chevron striping tape that I haven't used yet so I thought now would be a good time to try them out. Let's see the design then.

Golden Purple Chevron Nail Art

I used Essence Break Through on all the nails. I used chevron striping tape from Born Pretty Store and placed pieces on the ring and middle nail after making sure the base color was fully dried. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Then I applied OPI It's My Year on top and peeled off the tape. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I'm pretty happy with how the chevron design turned out. I chose to only have two of the nails with the chevron pattern on it since I didn't want my nails to be too busy with the design. What do you think?

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

Monday, June 5, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! The weather last week was so much cooler which made me so happy since I really don't like feeling hot. Anyways, I have a nice summer color to share today so let's see the polish.

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy is a bright sky blue with a subtle blue shimmer in it. This color is suppose to be a neon but I don't think it's that bright to be one. It does dry matte which neon polishes do. Seeing this color, it reminds me so much of pool water. In the swatch pictures, its appears much more lighter than it does in real life though. The formula was a little thin but it applied pretty well for me. If you want to lessen the amount of coats you have to apply, I suggest layering this polish over a white base polish. This is three coats with top coat.

Even though I'm not a huge fan of polishes having me to apply three coats, for this particular color I don't mind it. Its just so pretty on the nails and would be perfect on the nails when your lounging around by the pool too. What do you think?

May 2017 Product Empties

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Here's my product empties for May. I didn't empty out too much for this month but at least I did have a few products still to share with you all. Let's see the products and what I thought of them then.

May 2017 Product Empties

1. Pureplus Honey Bee Lip Treatment
This has been my night time lip care treatment that I've been using. I only use it at night right before I go to sleep because it has quite a thick sticky consistency to it. It was very moisturizing on my lips and I felt like it really helped to keep my lips soft when I'm sleeping. This small tube of it lasted me for quite a while too. I think there's still a little left but its really hard to squeeze out so I thought it was time to toss it out.

2. Onyx Professional Nail Polish Remover Strawberry Scent
I bought these since I wanted to try a nail polish remover other than pure acetone. It was just okay though. It took a longer time to remove my nail polish and the strawberry scent to it was kind of weird. I probably won't repurchase this again unless I really  have to.

3. Edén's Semilla Vitamin C Serum
I was sent this product for review purposes and I really ended up liking it a lot. I like how it made my skin appear more brighter in appearance whenever I used it. It felt cooling and pretty hydrating on the skin too. I do plan on purchasing a new bottle of it once I used up my other skincare products.

4. Edén's Semilla Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Like the Vitamin C Serum, I also really liked this product as well. It was more hydrating on the skin and it made my skin look more glowy whenever I used it. Its definitely a serum I will purchase a full size bottle too.

That's all for my product empties for May. I'm sad to see the two serums finished but I still have a lot of other things to go through before I can repurchase them again. Let me know what you've emptied this month too.

Teal Shimmer with Yellow Floral Pattern Stamping

Monday, May 29, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! Its really starting to heat up where I live. When I go to work, its cool but when I'm off work and going back home, its so humid with no wind. I'm not a huge fan of the hot weather but I checked the weather forecast and its suppose to cool down a bit this week. Anyways, let's see my blue manicure.

Teal Shimmer with Yellow Floral Pattern Stamping Nail Art

I used Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans on all the nails. I stamped with Ya Qin An 26 with stamping plate BP-27 from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

These turned out looking okay to me. I'm not in love with the floral image I used and I did stamp it on a little crooked on the nails too. What do you think?
