Hi everyone! I just got home, and I'm going to make this post for you guys hehehe :3
So today(technically yesterday cuz its past midnight now) was friday, and my friend, Maya, took me and another friend, Tiffany, out for dinner~ So, Maya came over first because Tiffany had work haha :P

Pretty Maya :D
And when Tiffany finally got off work, we went to pick her up and went to eat hehehe, and guess what we got? :D It's called Macaroon Party, yay so yummy! I absolutely LOVE macaroons, favorite type of snack ever, so I was very satisfied today (:
And after dinner, I suggested that we go wander around at Target so we can digest our food hahaha, and of course us being girls:
Camwhore heheheh :3
It was a fun night, and after I got home, I decided to show you guys my outfit because I promised to do Fashion Fridays!

 You guys are probably wondering what kind of weird pants I'm wearing hahaha, they're actually velvet leggings! And they feel soooo soft!
Velvet :D
 And some camwhore pictures here, mainly wanna showcase my ring heheheh, my boyfriend got me that for Valentines day, except... he got it in a size too big, and now it barely fits my middle finger haha.
Oh and, I wasn't wearing lashes today so... Small eyes >.<

Necklace and Shoes: You guys have seen these before haha, Forever 21.
Velvet Leggings: H&M from 2 years ago, but now a lot of stores sell them.
Okay, that's it for today! I'm going to catch up on some sleep now because I still have volunteer work to do tomorrow! Good night guys (:

Minty Goodness! Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and NYC Starry Silver Glitter + Outfit Pic~

Happy Tuesday everyone! :D It's my first day back at school... and... let's just say I fell asleep a couple of times hahah.
Anyway, over the 4-day weekend, I finally decided to paint my nails after letting them rest after Valentines. So here it is!
1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet, and one coat of NYC Starry Silver Glitter on accent nails.
 I love this shot :3 this green is as close to true color as I can capture it, although it can be quite a shapeshifter, going from very light to more yellow toned indoors. This is natural lighting.

And the next picture is artificial lighting before I stuck on the rhinestones, sorry about the messy cuticles haha, didn't clean up :P

With flash, I think this captures the glitter very well.
 The glitter I used is a mixture of small holo particles and slightly bigger iridescent glitter along with big bright blue hexagonal glitter and lavender glitter. The only complaint that I have though, is that the bigger colored hexagonal glitter is very sparse, so you have to fish it out of the bottle and manually place it on. The base color is Mint Sorbet, a very light mint green leaning pistachio, very opaque, love the formula of this. Below is one coat of it:

And here is a bottle shot with the names on the bottle. Mint Sorbet dries darker than bottle color, and Starry Silver Glitter is very sparse haha.

And here is the plate and design I used. I'm starting to feel that I'm the only one who still uses Konad haha, everyone else seemed to move onto brands like Cheeky and Red Angel and what not, but oh well :P

And one last photo, me being a camwhore as always :P I really love this green on my skintone heheh

Okay, that's the end of today's post! Talk to you guys soon~ And just a quick thank you to those who are recent followers, you make me so happy when I receive new comments and see my follower count go up (:

Hearts and Kisses, Valentines Day Nail Art :D

Hi everyone! :D I'm back with a nail polish post today, yay :3 I've been in quite a happy mood lately hehe, so I have a simple romantic mani to share today~
However, just take a note that the pink looks more true in the artificial lighting pics, natural lighting makes it too blue-ish.

This is natural lighting, do you guys prefer this or my artificial light? Color is inaccurate here...

Do you guys see how cloudy my rhinestone looks? Any ways to prevent this? ):

Love this finger the most hehe, kissies :-*

The pink I used is called Dance Baby by China Glaze and the white is Sally Hansen White On, which is very streaky... but typical for a pure white polish.
Here is everything at 1 coat, you can see how amazingly opaque Dance Baby is! :D

Okay, that concludes today's post! I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far :3 And, of course, thanks for reading (:
-Hugs and Kisses,

Pastel Saran Wrap Nails

Hi my little beauties! How are you guys doing? I'm in quite a dapper mood right now because I just submitted my resume, so I'm hoping I get the job! Until I get it, it's a secret for now :P 
But anyway, I have some saran wrap nails to show you guys today. I've been wanting to try this for so long, but honestly was too lazy to clean up haha. But the results I got this time were sooo pretty that I'm sure I'll be doing this more often!

See the shimmer in my ring finger? That's from my base color, Cinderella by Sinful Colors.

My favorite finger has to be my thumb, but right after I topcoated, I smudged it D: Can you see the weird mark on the tip haha?
Taken from my phone.
 So now that you see the beautiful results, let's reveal the process.
After I applied my 2 coats of Cinderella by Sinful Colors as a base, I went on to add blobs of a nameless lavender lilac, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet, and China Glaze Dance Baby

After dabbing all my nails with saran wrap, here is what my wrap looks like:

And here are what my nails look like (eek!): 

So that is the end of this post! Hope you guys had fun reading this, until next time my darlings :3

Color Club Winter Affair Duo: Gift of Sparkle and Anon Glitter Swatches and Review. Prizes of Jenni :3

Hi my sweethearts! Soooo, I have a really special post for you guys today! It's another giveaway prize from the lovely Jenni of I Relish Nail Polish. 2nd time! I'm one LUUUCKY girl :D I just wanna say thank you Jenni (:

So let me show you guys some swatches and then show the amazing packaging she used :3

In the below pictures, I have 2 coats of Gift of Sparkle and 1 coat of Glitter on my ring and thumb.
Artificial Lighting

Natural Lighting

Gift of Sparkle is a very dense and thick glitter polish consisting of dark purple, red, and sparse holo glitter suspended in a slighting plum tinted base.
This is one coat of Gift of Sparkle.
 And this Anonymous glitter is anonymous because Color Club's duos always dont have names.... And I couldn't find this glitter listed anywhere in the Winter Affair collection, but oh well, I forgive Color Club because its GORGEOUS. Seriously, I can't even describe it, it's like little hexagonal iridescent glitter that flashes from orange/light pink to teal/blue. OMG LOVE.

I think the bottle would give a better idea of the effect. SOOO PRETTY.

All in all, I love this duo! Although Gift of Sparkle is a bit thick, I think it's worth it because the glitter is so dense. And that holo! You all know I love holos :3 Hehehe, and the Iridescent glitter's formula is very nice too, nice amount of glitter for each coat, no need to fish or anything like that. And a plus? THEY'RE SOOOO SPARKLY.
Direct sunlight! Blurred to show you how sparkley it is!!!

Bottle shot :3
And now, let me amaze you with the adorable packaging! Along with bubblewrapping everything, she even wrapped the individual polishes with tissue! How considerate! Thanks Jenni :D


Hand written note! :3333
Jenni, you're such a sweetheart! I'm so glad to have made a friend like you through blogging. Honestly, that's the best part of blogging: being able to know so many amazing people and build bonds. Thank you guys so much! c:
Love, Christine.
