Revlon: Colorstay, Glitter Polish, & Top Speed Nail Enamels.

image

Annyeong haseyo!!! <3333 Today’s review deals with nail enamels! <3 I got these pretty polishes from my aunt residing in Osaka, Japan. Arigatou gozaimasu!!! <3

image

I love the variation of the polish bundle that my aunt gave hihi <3

image

The first polish I’d love to share is the Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in 060 Cafe Pink.

image

Japanese~ <3 Would love to learn how to read these in the future!!!

image

The brush is flat and a bit tapered at the corners. Definitely helps spread the polish more evenly.

image

The consistency is just right, not too thick and not too fluid.

Apply two coats of The Face Shop BL 606.

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

Ever dreamed of being a part of royalty? Being inside the lavish Palace of Versailles and living a splendid life. Well now you could translate the Queen Marie-Antoinette style onto your nails!

image

I just remembered that I did a plate rendering of the Hall of Mirrors or La Grande Galerie in French, which served as a passageway and meeting place inside the palace. It’s the biggest room in the Palace of Versailles. The arched mirrors on the left reflected the beautiful Park located on the right!

image

{Marie Antoinette’s Sense of Style:} Rich Satin fabric, silk floral embroidery, ribbon appliques, spangles and glass stones. Fabulous fabulous! Never goes out of style!

*It’s like I’m reviewing my history classes XD

image

The box really shouts out a princess feel don’t you think? :> It epitomizes the glamorous girly style of Marie Antoinette!

I wish Etude House would make a print of this for nail stickers!

Girls, be the Princess!

BOBBIE: Glaze SUPERNOVA!~

image

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!

image

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.

image

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!

image

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 :))
