Chevron Negative Space Nails

Hi lovelies,

Last week I received two gorgeous PP shades along with a set a nail vinyls from my lovely friend, Nil. And on the same day I saw these gorgeous negative space nails on @mrslochness, so these happened, hehe.

Eerie is a lilac purple scattered holo, the holo particles are almost like glass flecks, a really soft and delicate shade. The formula was good, this is one coat of Eerie over the nail vinyls and naked nails, I'll try to swatch this on its own soon.



I'm totally in love with the mattified version!!!



Eerie is available from piCture pOlish and their international stockist, for girls in China, Nil Nails is the one to go ; )

Glam Polish Frankenslime 2014 and Snoopy the Witch

Hi lovelies,

I just finished moving to a new apartment today!! And to make it up for not posting lately, I have two not-to-miss Glam Polishes for you XD They are the 2014 Halloween limited shades, really unique, let's see them for yourself.

Snoopy The Witch (LE) is a clear based glitter topper with a mixture of purple, black, white and orange, circle, square, star and hexagon glitter. I used it one coat over Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, the glitters spreaded easily and evenly on the nails and no fishing required. The Snoopy witch was painted on with acrylic paint, and the base's Zoya Arizona






Frankenslime 2014 (LE) was the shades I was really excited about!! A green crelly holo with small neon green and purple glitter, it got my attention straight away. Shown is three thin coats on its own, could have done it with two thicker coats, nice smooth formula! Again the Frankenstein portrait was painted with acrylic paint ; )






Do these go with the Halloween costume you picked out this year? Or are you gonna pick up something that matches them ; )

The polishes will be available for preorder on Sep 17th from Glam Polish bigcartel store with Australian and US shipping.

Pastels, Rainbows and Holos

Hi lovelies,

I've been quite busy for the last couple of days, but luckily still managed to do some nail art for the week. It's just a simple gradient with pretty holo topcoat, but the colorful nails really cheered me up from all those depressing studying : D

The polishes I used were OPI Pink Friday, Need Sunglasses? Face of Australia Once on a Blue Moon and OPI A Grape Fit! in the order of cuticle to tips; and finished with a thin coat of Gloss 'n Sparkle Spectraflair Topcoat. It's kind of like a double rainbow, haha.




Hope this will brighten up your days too : ) xx

Starrily Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive Party Time! Siloso Beach Trio

Hi lovelies,

As promised, more Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive shades! Today we have the Party Time! Siloso Beach Trio by Starrily, which includes a fun shape glitter topper, a gold holo glitterbomb and a strong linear holo. Let's check out the swatches!

Songs of The Sea is a rainbow glitter topper in all kinds of shapes you can ever imagine, stars, hearts, flowers, rings... I applied it one dabbing coat over Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather, no fishing was required except for the rings, which I only only got one out, it's on the top corner of my index finger.




Merlion's Dream is a glitterbomb of gold glitters in various shapes and sizes in clear holo base, I used it one coat over black, stunning!! This polish reminds me of the some romantic lines from Game of Thrones "You're the moon of my life" "my sun and stars".




Pink Flip Flops is a Baby pink jelly linear holo, the holo effect was really strong but the down side of it was it's really sheer, it took four coats for the swatches shown, still slightly visible nail line in shade.




The polishes are available from Mei Mei's Signatures both individually and as a set with international shipping.

Mermaid Nails

Hi lovelies,

It's been awhile since the last time I've done a freehanded nail art, and I decided to do one when I received my Merboy Straps Skater Dress from Black Milk Clothing last week. The dress was absolutely stunning, and I was super excited when I was doing these matching nails!! So glad that they came out so perfect, it took me quite a long time though, seriously considering getting a scale print stamping plate now, lol


I started with Emily de Molly Indigo Flow as my base, then dabbed random spots of Glam Polish You're Mean One Mr. Grinch! (exclusive to the Dec 2013 What's In-die Box?) over it with a sponge and went over them with Glam Polish Hanauma Bay (exclusive to Mei Mei's Signatures, swatches here). Then I painted the scale pattern with black acrylic paint over the holographic shimmering base.




Soooo in LOVE!!!


P.s. I won't be able to do all 31 day of the challenge ; ( but I still I would like to participate as much I can...

Frozen Nails featuring Glam Polish Fixer Upper

Hi lovelies,

How's everyone's weekend? Mine was quite busy, rushing through assignment deadlines and moving to our new apartment, lol. I hope these sparkly nails with cheer you up like it did to me : )

I started with a multichrome holo base, which is one coat of Glam Polish Fixer Upper over black; then added a coat of Glam Polish Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo over three of the nails, and stamped the other two with a silver holo shade using Easy Nail Art Stamp A20. The stamp allows polishes to be layered over each other, here are some video tutorials explaining how the stamp works; the two polishes I used for stamping here are Essie No Place Like Chrome and Color Club Harp On It.

I absolutely loved how the snowflakes looked over the dark color shifting holo background, just like a beautiful snowy night!





The two Glam Polishes I used for this mani are both from their latest collection, You're too Old to be Young, and you can find their individual swatches in my previous reviews, here and here.

Unzipped Pastel Nails

Hi lovelies,

I've been wanting to try those zippers for ages, and I'm so glad I got these as review products from Born Pretty Store! Since I've seen so many jeans mani(which are super cool btw) created with them before, I thought I might try something different, something sweet XD

I chose a minty base a creamy off white to go with the gold zippers, the pastel colors remind me a lot of macarons, hehe. The watercolor like minty background was done with four different nail polishes using the sponging method, the polishes used were OPI Damone Roberts, 1968, Essie Turquoise & Caicos, Smooth Sailing and Rock the Boat; and the cream color was OPI My Vampire is Buff.


I planned where the water decals will go beforehand, and applied the cream polish to fit them; a little trimming of the decals was needed.



Mattified version! Awww, I love them!


Here's a direct link for the zippers, don't forget to use the coupon(BAHQ10) for a 10% discount ; )
