Glam Polish Hypnotic Polish exclusive LE: Unforgettable Dream

Hi lovelies,

another day, another radiant polish  to share. This is a Hypnotic Polish exclusive Glam Polish, which is also a limited edition. It's a bright orchid with strong blue shimmer and glass flecks, such a bold shade. The formula was great, shown is two easy coats.

I couldn't help doing some nail art with this polish; simple tape mani using black, which makes the orchid look even brighter. 






This shade is only available from Hypnotic Polish with international shipping, for more information please follow their instagram and Facebook.

Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen! Collection Swatches and Review

Hi Lovelies,

Anyone's excited for today's post? I AM!!! I have the first trio from the Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen! Collection for you today, these gorgeous shades created by three of the most talented bloggers, let's check them out.

First we have Swatch and Learn by Mary from Swatch and Learn, a green polish packed with glass flecks that shift colors from copper to green then blue. This is the most beautiful green I've ever seen, and great formula too, two easy coats with topcoat. 


 I guess underwater shots were working very well for glass flecked jelly, but I liked this photo anyway : P


Two more photos shot in shade, more obvious color shifting here : ) but still you have to see it in person to really appreciate the beauty of this.



Next we have Undercover Mermaid by Michelle from Lab Muffin, a purpley taupe with green/blue iridescent glass flecks and flakies, lovely to look at from distance with a tiny surprise up close. Again amazing formula, this is three thin coats with topcoat, but two thicker coats would do the job too.




Last but not least, we have Stuck in the Middle by Kristy from The Polish Heaven, a bright raspberry jelly packed with blue iridescent glass flecks. Such a yummy and squishy shade, reminds me so much of fresh raspberries XD Shown below is two coats with topcoat.




These polishes are now available from Pretty Serious and selected retailers as a set and individually for $9.95 each.

P.s.  I used Pretty Serious Crystal Coat for the topcoat in these swatches, very smooth to apply and glossy, gonna get myself another bottle soon ; )

1888 Hotel Pyrmont, Sydney

Hi lovelies,

If you're following me on instagram you might know that I've been having so much fun lately, with the holiday and a totally relaxed night out at 1888 Hotel last night XD I have to thank all my sweet followers for last night! It was a promotional thing the hotel is doing with IG, you get a free stay if you have 10K or more followers on IG, more details are on 1888 Hotel website; and of course, in return I'm posting some fun photos I took during my stay : P

First, we have my "1888 Hotel" nail art. The base color was Face of Australia Once in a Blue Moon, and the letters and numbers were done with acrylic paint.


The room we stayed in, a king room. On the third floor, it was already the second highest floor of the hotel, very boutique indeed, and I loved every little things in the hotel.


This was very sweet : D


Day view


And night, we really enjoyed the artwork, especially the one on the right : P


We ended the stay with the most perfect way possible, breakfast in bed! And that's the ipad from the room next to the tray.


And just a few more pics of the nails.




Finished with my most comfortable hand post... xx

Seduced Hearts

Hi lovelies,

Today I'm showing you a mani created with one of my oldest untried polish (lol), Cult Nails Seduction.


Seduction is sheer purple jelly with a multi colored iridescent flakies, it was really sheer so I applied it two coats over OPI Vant to Bite My Neck? which is a perfect base for this.


Lovely color shifting effects.


This pic was taken in sun, the flakies are almost see through.


And of course underwater shots.


The image I used was from Messy Mansion plate MM-03, and stamped with Konad White.

What's In-die Box? June: 1 Year Anniversary Holo Box

What's In-die box had such a wonderful year, and to celebrate their first anniversary they had an all holo box for June, which was a must buy for me : P


Party in the Park by Powder Perfect is a darkened green holo, the effect is linear and very strong, and can be seen even in low direct light. I did two coats with topcoat here, and stamped MM02 over it with Color Club Harp on It.



Photos of Party in the Park on its own, two coats.




Peita's Polish Pink Bliz is a hot pink scattered holo, lovely formula and nice coverage in two coats.




Glam Polish Don't Make Me Blush is a red holo with glass flecks, the holo effect is somewhere in between scattered and linear, and it's quite strong. Again two coats with topcoat.




Queen of the Mermaids by Glittering Elements is another holo with glass flecks, the blue base is more jelly like though, it lets the flecks to shine through and adds more depth to the polish. It's like the ocean in a beautiful day! I applied two coats with topcoat here.




Lilypad Lacquer Violet Blaze is a deep purple holo with pink glass flecks, awww, this one is so pretty! The holo was super strong and linear, and the glass flecks add more sophistication to it. Two easy coats with topcoat.

Glittery Floral

Good morning. I'm back to Hong Kong for holiday, but don't worry about me disappearing again, I've saved a lot during the end of the semester : P cause I only had the time to paint them, and picking and editing photos usually takes forever...This is the nail art I'm really into lately, not much technique required, just nice polish combo. I used Chaos & Crocodiles Bunnies ♥ Line Dancing as my based and did tiny flowers with a dotting tool and Glam Polish I Guess That's Why They Call it Sin City. The iridescent glitter and holographic particles really stand out on the dark base, but Bunnies ♥ Line Dancing is not just an ordinary brown, please scroll down for the swatches.



Chaos & Crocodiles Bunnies ♥ Line Dancing is a shimmering brown polish with blue matte, holo and iridescent glitters. The color combination is kind of odd and turned out to be so beautiful! These were two coats with topcoat, lovely formula. If you would like to see the swatches of  I Guess That's Why They Call it Sin City, please check out this post.
