ANNYEONG HASEYO!!!!!!! Finally </3 after months of being inactive here I’m baaaackkk!!! kekeke~ <3 And my blog just turned 4 last Oct. 16 <3 I thank all the lovely people who still visited my blog even though it was lacking in posts ~(@_@)~ And to the brands who still stood by my inactive~ness for months! KAMSA HAMNIDA!!!

Speaking of turning 4… I heard that Born Pretty Store is also having their 4th year anniversary!! Happy 4 years!

image

Born Pretty Store was set up 4 years ago. Their product range expanded over the years and from just selling nail art tools they started selling cosmetics and accessories too!

The website bornprettystore.com has gained thousands upon thousands of registered customers from all over the world, leading up to millions of sales per month. We offer world wide free shipping and have already shipped to more than 150 countries including United Sates, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Russia, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, Korean, etc.

The original inspiration of the name born pretty store comes from proverb “each woman is born pretty”. Combining the aim of providing beauty items to the female, we incorporated it into the name “born pretty”store. Bornprettystore is a store intended to provide each ordinary female, whoever they are, wherever they come from, with the latest fashion items of nail art, make up and outfit, helping them find the best way to dress up, which ultimately push outside their potential beauty to the fullest.

image

I was given the freedom to choose from their super wide range of nail tools and accessories <3 OMO I LOVE browsing through their website which is oozing with nail~spirations <3

image

After moments of deciphering on which ones to get~ <3 I finally decided and a few days later the international package arrived~ I had to go pick it up still at the Philippine Post Office ~,~ but the bottom line is the package arrived quickly (^,^)/

image

I got the Gold & Silver 3D Steel Ball Nail Art Glitter Bead Decoration <3 SO PRETTY <3 Luuurve it! 

image

They call these steel ball nail art glitter bead decoration but I call these nail caviar <3 hohoho cause it’s shorter and easier to recall! Remember my Caviar Nail tutorial? Same thing <3

image

The second item I got is their 350pcs 2mm Round Square Mix Stud Rhinestones Nail Art Decoration w/box. I am a super fan of nail stud rhinestones because it makes your nails look super edgy, or classy, or stylish!

image

Their gold color is just divine! <3 Looks like real gold to me! AND the great thing is that these do not loose their color upon applying a top coat <3

I’ve created 5 different looks with these and I do believe that they definitely made my nails look extra wonderful kekeke~

HowTo: THE HUNGER GAMES Inspired Nail Art!~

image

If it were up to me, I would try to forget the Hunger Games entirely. Never speak of them again. Pretend they were nothing but a bad dream…

-Katniss Everdeen, Catching Fire.

image

OMO <3333 I AM SOOOOOOO HAPPY THAT I GOT TO WATCH CATCHING FIRE with mah friends last Friday <3 It was so awesome!!! <333 Plus the new cast <3 The arena!!! ahhhh!!!!! Everything was so great, but I just wanted more arena scenes~ kekekeke (oh no I feel like President Snow XD)

image

And because the story never left me (and I hope it will never will!) I got inspired to do a quick and easy The Hunger Games inspired nail art <3

image

You’ll need: A gold polish (Deborah Lippmann Nefertiti), a black shimmering polish (Sally Hansen Midnight in NY), a hot red polish (Tony Moly TR16), a clear top coat (Caress Clear Coat), toothpicks, a plastic surface and sponges!

Ignite the sparks in three, two…

image

Start off by applying a black shimmering polish, this one from Sally Hansen has really subtle sparkles that will enhance the flame that we will make later on :)

image

THE RING~ bam bam baammmm~ Draw on a circle with the gold polish and a toothpick. I drew on the circle first before the Mockingjay cause it’ll serve as my basis on where to draw the wings, the arrow and such~ Once your happy with your ring, draw on the silhouette of the Mockingjay (good for you if you could be more detailed by drawing on its feathers!).

Etude House: Bling in the Sea Magical Kiss!~

image

Annyeong haseyo mermaids! It’s scorching hot this afternoon @.@ So this line is perfect for this hot hot September day!

Etude House is always creating lines that will tickle any little girl’s heart! Make that any one who is young at heart! And they recently came up with a collection that is derived from fairy tales. Introducing Bling in the Sea, a sparkling, arcane story of a Little Mermaid under the sea.

image

A little mermaid lived in an arcane sea-world and while she was looking around the shore, she fell in love with a prince at the first sight.

The little mermaid visited Ursula, sea-witch, to ask her for help and Ursula said “ I’ll give you this bright jewel box filled with the twinkling of the sea, but the twinkling will burst like a bubble after 3 days and will spread out in the world.”

 The little mermaid adorned herself with sparkling and the prince fell in love eventually.

On the third day, the little mermaid generously spread all the sweet and happy things that she could get from the sparkling and shared it with everyone in the world.

Now, ETUDE introduces the dazzling sparkle to public.

image

A little mermaid-inspired sparkling love story under the sea.

image

The Bling in the Sea collection consists of eye, face and lip makes and as well as a nail polish collection. What’s special about the Bling in the Sea Sparkling Nails is that these are limited edition!

image

{Feature:}

  1. Fancy Glitter Nail Polishes- It shines and sparkles with plenty of glitters that reflects lights, and each color has different color, size, and texture of glitter so it shows different result.
  2. Non-chip, long-lasting effect- Sparkling nail color maintained much longer with stronger adhesion of base so it is not chipped easily even in the water .
  3. The best ratio of glitter and color base- The best  ratio makes it possible to apply color base cleanly and apply glitter softly.

image

image

The shape of the polish bottle is pretty plain, but good thing they adorned it with pretty prints like this! :D
