SensAsian Dessert Inspired Mani

Hi lovelies,

If you're following me on Instagram, you've probably seen these already. They are inspired by Katherine Sabbath's donuts and Black Star Pastry's Strawberry Watermelon Cake/ Cake Smash (collaboration with N2 Extreme Gelato), some of the best desserts in Sydney, and definitely my personal favorites XD And thanks to the SensAsian event held at Mojo by Luke Mangan, I got to have them all at once. 

For the nails I used Lime Crime Milky Ways as my base and stamped on the cute donuts from BM 308 on two on the nails; for the others I painted on some rose petals and pistachios which are usually on the strawberry watermelon cake, yum! 



Continue scrolling down, I got a big SURPRISE for you ; )



This is the sticky dark chocolate donut covered with white chocolate and decorated with a hazelnut chocolate mousse ball, you don't see anything in the middle?? yeh, I ate it before I could tooka  photo : P



This is the Harajuku burger cupcake by Katherine Sabbath.


The famous Strawberry Watermelon Cake!!!


Last but not least the Cake Smash by Black Star Pastry x N2 Extreme Gelato. Always match your nails with your food!


Thanks for reading! xx

Glam Polish Think Pink Trio (LE)

Hi lovelies,

Today I have a limited edition trio by Glam Polish to show you, it a set of three very unique and beautiful pink polishes. Wait till you see the very last polish ; )

Heart Breaker is a berry pink ultra holo with bronze glass flecks. I used three thin coats for these, easy breezy application. 





I felt like stamping when I had this polish on, mainly because the name. So I did it, shattered glass with CAUTION stripes using BM 421 and 608.


Its a Secret is an orchid pink holo with purple, blue glass flecks and pink/purple flakes. A pastel purple holo to me, really lovely! Three thin coats for the swatches here.




Crystal Couture has bright pink, orchid, silver & lavender holo glitter in a holographic base with purple glass flecks and strong pink shimmer. This one is my favorite! It's a holo/glitter bomb, what's not to like XD I used three thin coats for these, really easy to even out the glitters, it was almost opaque after the first two coats.

I didn't capture the pink shimmer very well in the photos, it is so strong in person!!




The Think Pink Trio will be released this Friday July 3rd 8pm EDT (USA) from www.glampolish.com.au with shipping to Australia, USA and France - shipping rates to USA are $3.50 USD for the first polish and an extra $1.00 for each additional polish.

Monroe Inspired Nails featuring Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate

Hi lovelies,

I've been wanting to do this for a long time, just didn't have the right tools... In fact, I have done a freehand Monroe painting last year on one of the polishes I swatched, but didn't post them, cause it was such a nail fail, lol. I'm really glad that I received this plate for review from Born Pretty Store.

I did some classy black and red half moons using Deborah Lippmann My Old Flame and Essie Licorice; and on my accent nail I applied Emily de Molly LE 03 as my base and stamped on the Monroe image from the plate. So in love with this mani!! And I think the nail shape I had complimented the design really well, I guess it's not so bad to break a nail sometimes.




I hope you enjoyed this mani as much as I did : )

The plate is available from Born Pretty Store for $5.99 each. Here is the direct link to it.

Glam Polish Mei Mei's Signature's Exclusive Sweet Duo I and II

Hi lovelies, 

I'm going to show you the second duo first, because it will be available from Mei Mei's Signatures tonight! Any one excited XD I know I am.

Berry Parfait is a pastel neon pink with violet glass flecks and rose shimmer. I'm so in love with this cute shade, so cheerful! Perfectly opaque with three thin coats. 




Lemon Meringue is pastel neon yellow with gold glass flecks and blue shimmer. I love the color, but it's just kinda of painful when have you paint more than three coats, I used FIVE for the swatches. It looks okay with four coats on the camera, but just not good enough for the eyes, so I added a very thin fifth coats.





The next two polishes were the first Sweet Duo, I didn't get a chance to post them when they were being launched, that's why I'm posting them together. They're now available on the site now, but who knows, they might show up again ; )

Apple Mint is a neon mint creme with aqua glass flecks and shimmer. lovely formula, I used three thin coats for the swatches.




Sweet Peach is a pastel neon coral with pink and gold glass flecks, the shade is more warm toned in person. This is definitely the color I would wear to the beach, shown in three coats.




Last but not least, some nail art with the Apple Mint and Sweet Peach, water marble of the polishes over white as accents.



Berry Parfait and Lemon Meringue are available from Moo Moo's Signature now! The last duo sold up almost immediately after the launch, so HURRY UP!

Bundle Monster Triangle Studs

Hi lovelies,

I realised I haven't posted mush nail art lately, I should probably start doing it regularly. The thing is I've been enjoying working out and paying a lot more attention on my body for the last few months, and I haven't find the balance between that and nails and everything else in my life. I'll try to push myself harder, and get more things done. It's not that I don't like painting my nails anymore, sometimes I'm just to tired to do anything after a workout, lol. 

--- my little confession ---

Back to today's topic, studs! Tiny gold triangle studs from Bundle Monster. I didn't have anything like this in my stash, so I was quite happy when I received them as review products. They are perfect to add that little extra sparkle for a mani, or they can be worn like glitter placements, they are so bumpy like the large ones. In fact, I think I'll do one soon.

Shown are placements of one stud on each nail over Moo Moo's Signatures Mossy, you can see the swatches here if you're interested.





You can purchase these studs from Bundle Monster in a pack of 100 for $3.99, direct link for the product is here.

Pretty Serious Stop! Collaborate and Listen NEW SHADES

Hi lovelies,

Today I have the swatches of the new collaboration shades from Pretty Serious for you, there are three polishes, designed by three very talented nail polish bloggers. I'll share more details with you below, now, let's see the photos ; )

Iktsuarpok is a medium grey creme jelly with silver glass fleck flakes. Designed by Hannah from Polly Polish. It was nicely formulated, and more opaque than I expected for a grey crelly, I only needed two thin coats for the swatches.




Kashmir is a dark red based purple jelly with golden and copper microflakes, colour shifting purple to blue glass fleck and red opal flakes. Designed by Christine from Serenity Nails. Very rich and elegant shade, shown is two thin coats with topcoat. The photos taken with flash don't do the polish justice at all, so I included a shaded pic for this, the red opal flakes are really stunning!





Herald of the Skeleton War is a blackened green jelly with iridescent blue flakes, golden green and purple microglitter and multi sized purple hex glitter. Designed by Scrangie from Scrangie.com. I used three coats for the swatches, the formula was on the thick side, made it a bit harder to apply than the other two.




The shades are now available from Pretty Serious for $9.95 each.
