My first visit to CNA this year!~ :D They have a lot of new sparkly, fluffy, neon hair accessories and all things kyeopta!!! omo my kpop bling bling heart became happy :)
But because I was poor :))) I intentionally did not bring more than 200 pesos with me. And that move really saved me from buying more than what I need :> hihihihi~
NEED hahaha!!! BLACKJACK baby~ :D This name plate is just so pretty and cool like 2NE1~~ Please have a comeback soon!!! <3
Wazzupp!!!! :D :) Tonight’s nail art will be super easy and fuss free!! :D All you need are the polishes above and one tool^ :D
The Face Shop OR206, Nature Republic BE104 and Caronia Fast-Dry Top Coat and Etude House Nail Dot tool :)
I have to admit that The Face Shop really does the best nail polishes :) Quick to dry, very opaque and lasts really long! When I was in my first year of college I used to hoard The Face Shop polishes cause they were (and still are) just so good!! ^-^
AIGOOO!!! It’s so HOT!!!! Cool down with this fun and fresh and yummy nail art! :D :>
Start off by finding a very nice chocolatey dark brown polish :D :> The base looks yummilicious!~
I’m using BK Nail Polish Chocolate~ :> Favorite brown polish! :D
Now comes the FUN fudge part! :D :)
My Valentine’s Nail Art :)) kekeke~ Well, I had no Valentine’s date because Yoochun is still in Korea doing his thing :))))) All the single ladies~~ Now put yah hands up! (>,<)/
Erika’s Weather Forecast: Museums are so cool!!! Do visit RCBC Museum at Makati!!!! <3333 omo the awesomeness~~~~ your fifty peso entrance fee will be soooo worth it!!!
ZOMBIES!!!! Shoot them in the head, until they’re dead! I got inspired by a recent movie I watched :>
Well, if you haven’t heard of it yet, Warm Bodies is a very very funny zombie movie :D Made me and my friends laugh throughout the movie!!! The movie actually made me feel good afterwards! Feels great to be kicking and living!
^The lead actress looks a lot like Kirsten Stewart!
It was rated PG13, so it was the perfect rating for me :))))) Nothing gross!!! <333 They had a lot of action scenes! Which made me feel like I was playing Left 4 Dead (^.^)/// The scenes where more thrilling and exciting than horrifying :D The only thing that was creepy in the movie was the 2 zombie children (o.o)
Lavender~ <3 I was supposed to get the Rose Oil right? But then I was drawn to the scent of lavender :) It’s so calming and just perfect!
Oh and my grandma was the one who introduced me to lavender scented stuff which I really loved! She used to give me those lavender scented lotions from Marks & Spencers and she also gave us lavender oil to apply before sleeping!
It has a rich aromatic scent that relives stress and anxiety :> Just smelling it makes me so relaxed and calm afterwards :)
My “carrot” nails :> kekeke!!!! I am wrong with the way the green leaves fall XD I will redo!!!!
My inspiration :» Carrot Fantasy <3333 waha it’s so addicting @.@ My next mostly played game after Star Maker! If you have exams… DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT :))
Good morning!!! <3 Today I’ll be showing you how to do the Sponge Nail Art Technique! I previously posted a finished nail look^ here and some of you guys requested for a tutorial :D So here you go ヽ(^。^)丿
Gather all these things: A normal sponge, Petroleum Jelly, A plastic container (one that you can place nail polish on) or a paper sheet, Nail Colors, Scissors and Face Mask Brush.
Using the Face Mask Brush, get some petroleum Jelly and apply some on all of the sides of nails.
This will serve as protection! And you’ll have the easiest time removing excess nail polish and it also will help dry polish faster!!!!
Getting the sponge, cut it according to your nail shape.
The length should look like this :D So you would have grip when you use it.
The colors I’m using are Nature Republic PK204 & Bobbie Gaze I DO. Get the darker color on the upper half and the lighter color at the bottom for a gradient tip. You can do the opposite if you want ;D
Instead of using watusi, sinturon ni hudas and other firecrackers this new year, paint nails with something that gives the same effect, Bang Bang Boom! Another Galactic polish from Bobbie! :D I’ve used and LOVED <3 their Solar Burst one which I used for both my Christmas 2011 and 2012 nail arts :> And now another <3 called Supernova!
I have a good reason why I bought this! :)) It’s because I commuted home one day and my money was all big bills~ I am afraid to pay bills when riding the tricycle cause one time the tricycle driver scolded me @.@ so yes, now I pay coins or smaller bills when riding the tricycle. “Barya lang po sa whole day.”
The applicator and handle is small but I didn’t had a hard time applying the polish :D It’s round but the polish is made of good awesome quality so application was easy!
It comes in a small glass bottle that can never be broken XD I have dropped this for several times and it still hasn’t shattered into pieces :))
Yummy cupcake!!! <3 Do you know that this is from Whatta Tops? It’s their Christmas Edition!! <333 Same yummy Whatta Top taste with added ‘nips’ sprinkles :> nom nom~
I am so addicted to Whatta Tops~ like if you would give me a Whatta Top birthday cake then I will be super happy :»
The way they make the whole cupcake is awesome!!!! <333 Plus the filling inside ~.~ will make you eat one after the other… seriously…
You could get Whatta Top cupcakes at groceries and any sari-sari store nationwide! XD I think a box of 6 costs around 50 pesos!!! @.@ :> I LOVE WHATTA TOPS!!!!
And yes, this nail polish has a connection to the cupcake :) XD They are both chocolaty! ;) Ate abee and I bought this at the UP Christmas Bazaar at the Bahay ng Alumni last friday~~ :) We were killing time roaming around the booths waiting for the Lantern Parade to start ^^ when we saw this!!!
Personally, I think the booths last friday were, meh~ Nothing so special unlike last year when I got so much things from the bazaar. We got this polish at Ichigoshoppe’s booth :> The only booth where we purchased something XD The lady manning the booth was good at sales talking XD she said that the nail polish will smell like chocolate after application!!!!! like WOW!!~
Christmas is soooo near!!!~ I can see lights everywhere! And Christmas songs are continuously played in malls!!~ Cheers! So tonight I’ll be teaching a very easy fool proof nail art tutorial! ;D
Products used: Caress in Appealing Red, Bobbie in Solar Burst, Etude House GR605 VVIP, Bobbie in Pure White and Etude House Nail Dotter Tool. Chose the polishes because they give a nice opaque finish without applying too much! <3
I am really happy with this Bobbie Premium in Snow White! Usually I have a hard time applying white polish because streaks are so visible, not with this one!~
Apply 2 coats of white polish!~ This will serve as base…
With the nail dot tool, apply random sizes of red dots on nails!~
Christmas Nails!!!! <333 December is here!!! And the weather is getting colder :> eeeppp!!~ <333 Bling Bling nails XD

I wanted to try one because the thought of it is cool XD~ So one time while roaming around SM Marikina’s department store… my sister and I saw this!!!

The brush is flat which makes the required single application so easy!
And I would not be able to see him!!! @.@ Aigoo~~~ Do you know how it feels when your ultimate k-idol crush bias is in your country and you would not be able to see him?? :«< omo omo my heart was hurting ~,~ I wished I cut classes earlier XD :)))) haha I will just google fan girl stories~~ Aisshh #.# Will just see him, when I go to Korea??? kekeke~ Lee Min Ho!!!
Anyway, I actually started accepting that fact since enrollment XD When I saw that I had a Friday class that fits right smack to Lee Min Ho’s Benchsetter Fun Meet timeslot! :«« And since I’m a noob at CAD I thought to myself “I should never miss a class!!!”
And to get my mind off Lee Min Ho~~ I did my nails XD :))) BLING IT OUT GIRL~ :))))
Ahhh was delightfully happy when I was done~ (but I still kept thinking about how Lee Min Ho huhuhu @.@)
HELLO!!!<333 Presenting my current favorite nail polish brand!!! :» Caress! I just love a cheap and quality find! (well who doesn’t?? kekeke)
Made in the Philippines! Woot woot!~
It has a tiny yet proportionally designed handle that also enables you much control~
Even though this one is not the flat type of brush it also spreads color well~ :D
The consistency is also amazing! Ahh not too liquid~y. There is no strong scent when opened (Just when you put it close to your nose, you’ll smell those plastic balloons XD)
