super long hiatus, I’m finally back! Today I will be reviewing a polish that is a little high-end – Butter London’s Henley Regatta. I got this quite some time ago and totally forgot about it until now.
พักหายไประยะยาว ในที่สุดก็กลับมาแล้วค่ะ วันนี้เราจะมารีวิวยาทาเล็บที่ค่อนข้างไฮเอนด์เล็กน้อย (ปกติที่เรารีวิวจะราคาไม่ค่อยสูงมากเท่าไหร่) – Butter London Henley Regatta สีนี้จริงๆ เราซื้อมาสักพักและลืมมันไปแล้วจนเมื่อไม่นานมานี้เพิ่งนึกขึ้นได้ว่า เฮ้ย เราก็มีอยู่นะ 555 Henley Regatta is a fusion of emerald green and teal glitter in clear base polish. The formula for this one was great, although three coats are needed for opacity. Here I applied three coats with no top coat. You can definitely use this for layering over darker colors. The teal glitter isn’t very noticeable, although when combined with the green, gives off beautiful sparkles.
Henley Regatta เป็นกลิตเตอร์สีเขียวมรกตกับสีฟ้าสว่างในเบสสีใสค่ะ น้ำยาดีเลยทีเดียว แต่ถ้าจะให้สีเข้มแบบนี้ต้องทาสามรอบค่ะ ในภาพบีทาสามรอบโดยไม่ทาท็อปโค้ท คิดว่าสีนี้ถ้าเอาไปทาทับสีเข้มๆ น่าจะสวยทีเดียว กลิตเตอร์สีฟ้าจะมองไม่ค่อยเห็นเท่าไหร่ แต่ช่วยเพิ่มมิติให้กับสีมากๆ เวลากระทบแสงจะสวยมากค่ะ The color is super vibrant and bold. I think this would look striking against pale skin! I also love how the color varies in intensity depending on the light. Under yellow light it looks a little matte, but outside it sparkles like a disco ball *heart eyes emoji*. I’m impressed with the dry time too. I only applied this color on one hand first, starting from the pinky to the thumb (sometimes I go in reverse order). It dries quickly to the point that I could start on my second coat on the pinky right away after I’m done with the thumb. So a thumbs up to Butter London for that! Onto some pic spam:
จะเห็นได้ว่าสีค่อนข้างสดเลยทีเดียว บีคิดว่าถ้าคนผิวขาวทาแล้วต้องเหมาะมากแน่นอน ชอบที่สีมันจะเปลี่ยนไปตามแสงค่ะ เวลาอยู่ในห้องไฟสีส้มๆ เหลืองๆ (แบบบีตอนนี้ 555) สีจะออกแมทๆ หน่อย แต่พอกระทบแสงข้างนอกจะประกายวิบวับเลยค่ะ ตอนทาแห้งไวด้วย สำหรับรีวิวเราทามือด้านซ้ายก่อน เริ่มจากนิ้วก้อยไปนิ้วโป้ง มันแห้งเร็วขนาดที่ว่าบีสามารถไปทานิ้วก้อยรอบสองทันทีที่ทารอบแรกตรงนิ้วโป้งเสร็จ (แต่ต้องทาบางๆ นะคะ) อันนี้ต้องขอยกนิ้วให้ Butter London เลย ดูภาพอื่นๆ กันค่ะ:
The color really does remind me of Essence Choose Me!, but I definitely prefer this one more. I don’t wear a lot of green but I do think this is definitely a wearable color.
สีอันนี้ทำให้นึกถึง Essence Choose Me! แต่ส่วนตัวชอบสีนี้มากกว่าค่ะ ตอนล้างจะไม่ทิ้งสีเขียวๆ รอบจมูกเล็บด้วย ส่วนตัวไม่ค่อยทาสีเขียวเท่าไหร่แต่คิดว่าสีนี้ทาได้ในชีวิตประจำวันค่ะ 🙂
Thanks for reading!
In today’s post I have for you guys Essie’s Pop Art Pink from Essie’s Spring Collection in 2010. My mom chose this color for me, so this polish is quite special. The first time I used it, I really hated this color. But I’m going to be gone from February 4 to 8th to Khao Lak for a school residential trip (that means no changing polish for 4 days!) and wanted a natural looking shade to wear, so I decided to give this polish another try. I rarely wear pink except for natural looking jelly/sheer ones, but this is one of my favorites. With one coat the color comes off as a natural looking jelly polish. With two or three coats, it turns to a milky-pink jelly color. The formula for this is okay. To apply it well with thin coats, you have to be quick because the polish drys very fast. With thick coats it works well just like regular polish. There are also some bubbling that occurred during dry time. The polish dries glossy, so I decided not to apply any topcoat. Here I have on two coats. After taking photos of these swatches I decided to add topcoat to the nails that had bubbles, and the bubbles disappeared. Weird, huh? Also, my pointy finger nail broke again, sorry. Please ignore it!
Overall, I really like this color! It’s pretty versatile too. You can wear it with one coat for a natural look, or two or three coats for it to be opaque. I think this polish is super girly and fun. What do you think?
Hi guys! Long time no post! It’s been a month! The reason why I haven’t been posting is because I’ve been really busy lately. Plus, one of my nails also broke, and I can’t be bothered to fix it so I was away from swatching for a while — but now I’m back!
Today I will be reviewing Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Real Nail Polish strips in Check It Out number 240. This is one of the goodies I bought from my trip to America (Btw I hope to go there again soon, I loved everything there!).
At first I didn’t really want to post this review because the photo quality isn’t that decent. I took these photos at around 7pm with room light. But there aren’t many reviews for this product and I miss posting here, so I hope you don’t mind. I’m also trying to improve how I add credits on my photos… so please bear with me.
The kit includes the following:
- 16 Nail Polish Strips
- Cuticle Stick
- Mini File and Buffer
- Detailed instructions of how to apply/use the product
This is my very first time with nail stickers/nail polish strips. I followed the instructions inside the package and this is what it turned out like:
Please note that these photos were taken after three days of wear. As you can see, there aren’t any major chips except around the cuticle and the nail’s free edge.
Application was relatively easy. As instructed in the instruction sheet, the first step into applying the strips is pushing your cuticles using the cuticle stick given in the kit. After that, we have to buff and smooth out the surface of your nail using the buffer (also included in the kit. I did not do this step btw). Then, to apply, select the best-fitting strip for each nail, then you have to peel the strip to remove its clear protective plastic cover and it’s backing paper. Place it above your nail plate and press it down using your fingers. After that remove excess nail strips by gently filing the free edge of the nail.
What I found a bit challenging in the process of applying this that the strips can stretch. The strips are also very sticky, therefore if you make mistakes and decide to pull it from the nail plate and re-apply, the strips can over-stretch. There are 16 strips given in the kit and I think they’ve done a really good job in making sure it will fit with all nail sizes. The instructions did not mention about topcoat, but I did apply a layer of Sally Hansen’s Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthening Top Coat over the strips. I later read on a forum post that we’re supposed to wait an hour before applying any topcoat, I don’t know for sure whether this is true, but what I did turned out just fine!
Overall I really liked how this mani turned out! The pattern is super eye-catching and I received lots of compliments from my friends. If I had a chance I would definitely repurchase these nail strips, and would like to try other patterns as well.

Some of you may want to know about the removal process. It is instructed in the kit to use nail polish remover to remove the strips. When I removed it, I was quite surprised that it removed in tiny bits:
Thank you so much for reading!
At my school, every student is separated into 4 houses: Hanuman, Erawan, Tosakan and Naga (similar to Harry Potter, haha!). I’m in Hanuman. Next Thursday is my school’s annual Sports Day event, and the color for Hanuman is orange. Because of that, to show spirit I decided to paint my nails orange!
Originally I decided to go with Zoya’s Lianne, which applied on really smooth and nicely, but the Seche Vite ruined the mani with the pull. Other orange polishes I currently own are: OPI’s In My Back Pocket, Skinfood PK205 and China Glaze Peachy Keen. I didn’t like any of those three, and thats when I noticed Copper Glitter.
Copper Glitter is a striper by L.A. Colors. (Yes, another mani using stripers — I think I might be a little bit obsessed!) Copper Glitter is a orange and copper glitter in a clear base polish.
Application was easy . This polish dried smooth and matte. Here I applied two coats of Copper Glitter and one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast topcoat for shine. They were super sparkly when it hit the lights and even with indoor lights! I can’t stop looking at my nails.
And heres a pic spam of the polish for you:

Today I have for you guys Essence’s Choose Me! I was given this through a nail mail swap from one of my nail mail buddy from Ireland.
Choose Me! contains silver and gold flecks within a blue-green sheer base. Indoors its a green color, but in sunlight it appears a bit blue. The formula was easy to apply and dry time was fast. I love the sparkle and the brush in my opinion, is easy to use.
This is my first time with Essence nail polish, and I am overall very impressed, both by the color and the bottle. I love how the bottle is small, but not too small. A downside to this polish though, is that they do stain your nails a tiny bit of green. However the stain can be removed with nail polish remover. I will definitely check out more of Essence’s polishes soon!
