Bulk Update…

I apologize for the lack of updates. Been so busy with school lately. But I promise I’ll keep updating as much as I can *bows* ขอโทษที่ไม่ได้เข้ามาอัพเดทเลยค่ะ ช่วงนี้ยุ่งอยู่กับการเรียน แต่สัญญาว่าจะพยายามเข้ามาอัพเดทเท่าที่สามารถทำได้ค่ะ *โค้ง*

While I was gone I did paint my nails and id a few nail arts, but I wasn’t able to take good quality images using my EOS camera. Sorry about the bad quality. 😦 ตลอดช่วงเวลาที่หาย(!)ไป เราก็ยังทาเล็บและทำเล็บอยู่ แต่ไม่ได้ถ่ายรูปคุณภาพดีๆ ด้วยกล้อง EOS ของเรา ขอโทษสำหรับคุณภาพรูปที่ไม่ค่อยดีนะคะ 😦

OPI’s Tomorrow Never Dies Swatches and Review

Hello! Today I have for you guys swatches of OPI’s Tomorrow Never Dies from OPI’s Holiday 2012 collection Skyfall. I decided to cut my nails on my left hand short because I started to think it was weird having nails on my left hand longer than the right hand. Haha.

Tomorrow Never Dies is a metallic dark blue-purple with blue and pink shimmers. The blue and pink shimmers are barely visible even with flash, but can be seen in the bottle. This polish can appear dark blue or purple depending on the light, which I absolutely LOVE!

I was glad I ordered this polish and have this in my stash. I was reluctant about ordering this polish at first but after reading WorkPlayPolish‘s post and a few other posts out there, I decided to order this. I think I’ve also discovered my love for metallic polish.

Below are bottle shots to show you the beautiful shimmers. It also shows how the color of the polish appears depending on the light.

Here I applied 2 coats with a layer of Seche Vite topcoat. I ran out of my Essie Good to Go and found Seche Vite in the store, so I decided to try Seche out. The polish was a bit runny and needs at least 2 coats to be opaque. Dry time was fast.

OPI Ski Teal We Drop Swatches and Review

When it comes to my choice of color for nail polish, I don’t usually wear dark colors, especially dark plums, reds, browns, etc. I don’t think it fits well with my skin color. However, a couple of days ago I literally have no idea which color to paint my nails, and I went for OPI’s Ski Teal We Drop:

Here I have applied 2 coats with a coat of Essie Good to Go topcoat. I really don’t know how to explain this color in words. The name suggest that its a teal color, but personally I think its a dark teal color, almost dark blue when it hits the lights. It looks navy/dark blue to almost black in the shade/indoors. The polish applied very nicely, no bubbling, and dry time was average.

I think I pretty much fell in love with this color. One of my favorites for sure! I just couldn’t stop staring at my nails. Yesterday I went outside for a family dinner, my mom saw my nails and she complimented its color. She never does that, so that means something.

As I’m writing this post, its October 31st, which is Halloween. Happy Halloween everyone! (:


Colorful Stripes & Stars Nails

As you can probably tell, I am very bad at coming up with names. I really don’t know what to call this design… I did these about a month ago. Saw this design from Nail Max! magazine. I really like how it turned out!

Since I couldn’t get a good photo for my entire hand, heres a picture of my thumb:

Sorry about the dry cuticles and the growth. 😦 I took this photo around 4-5 days after I painted them, and my nails grow super fast so theres a bit of growth when I took the photos. I used a brush and acrylic paint to paint the stars and stripes.

My nail polish order (Butter London Dodgy Barnett, All That Glitters Spottie Dottie Black and White) just arrived today too. When I have the mood (probably Thursday), I will probably post more swatches. 🙂


Sparkly Galaxy Nails!

Thought I’d post one of my favorite nail design I’ve ever done. I did this 14 weeks ago, so around May. I love the sparkle and how the colors blend in together! Every finger is different, too.

What do you think?
