Well, this is my diary. And it's about my nails. :D

Ahh I am getting more and more in love with flakies now! I originally intended to only layer #58 over black (hate #58, I thought it was ugly but over black it's a whole different story!) when I recalled seeing flaky layered over ANOTHER flaky somewhere on the web and decided to add on #38! Next thing I know, I'm adding on #53 as well! Not too sure how I feel about the manicure at first but I know I don't hate it.. friend loved it and I wanted to test the new b/c t/c combi so I left this on for 3 days.. this was day 3 when I took these photos hence the tip wear!

Do you love flakies, and if so, how many do you own? :D

I love mints.

I love mints. I love mints. I love mints.

I. Love. Mints.

And this comes is a super pretty rose bottle! It also has golden shimmer! :D
Absolutely gorgeous, it is a shame that it's pretty sheer though! I did two coats and as you can see from the above pictures you can see VNL (visible nail line -if you do not already know- yay you learnt something new!) I could probably try layering, but I wouldn't mind adding more layers for this pretty!

You have seen this a thousand times over on other nail blogs.
And here it is again. I absolutely love this. It's such a gorgeous polish- tiny blue and gold glitter mixed altogether in clear base- it's pretty awesome. I fell in love with this and am in love with this more than the kind-of-overrated Mad As A Hatter. I never really liked MAAH in the beginning, I thought it was kind of ugly and never understood why so many people are crazy over it. I sold away my mini and for some reason decided to give it another try, so I got my lovely friend in the States- the lovely Gia, who found it to send me one. I can say I don't dislike it now, and am going to give it a few more tries before I decide on whether it's keep or purge!

NOTD: Angelica

I admit it- I'm pretty bad at naming things. Frankens, NOTDs.. except dogs. I think I have like over a dozen dog names in my head.

So anyway, I've been obsessed with fimo bits lately.. I just got a friend to bought a whole bunch on eBay for me! (cos' they do not ship to Singapore, boo!)
I've decided to add these hearts to my manicure to make it more prettier and interesting, together with some pearl stones.

For this manicure I used Steady as She Rose and Golden Rainbow, both by OPI!
Steady as She Rose is making its way to my top 10 favorite nail lacquers! It applies so smoothly and agh, I just love the color! ♥

Swatch Folder: China Glaze He's Going in Circles

China Glaze He's Going in Circles from Kaleidoscope Collection:

I'm feeling meh about this polish, but since it was only $2, I picked it up.

In shade.

Bottle pics:

This is much different from the polishes from the OMG collection.. while the polishes from the OMG collex are super linear holos, these are rather scattered and only more obvious in the sunlight. Not much love from me here (since I am not a super green lover anyway), maybe I shall try it out one more time before it goes to another good home!

Swatch Folder: OPI Movin' Out over WnW Black

OPI Movin' Out: duochrome goodness.
It's very sheer though, so it's best to layer over another darker color to enhance it's natural beauty.

NOTD: Elianto Indigo Shine + Nfu Oh #037






Pretty butterfly ring~ :D


Under LED light:




I don't know what else to say but it's like magic to me on my nails.
Which coincidentally, I caught Harry Potter today! :D

Swatch Folder: Elianto Night Glitters

Today I bring you Elianto Night Glitters.
I picked this up the other day at a nail salon for only $0.50!
I thought it looks pretty cool in the bottle when I picked it up, but I never thought I would fall in love with the color!

What a beauty! Dark olive green with sparkles.. ~~** hmm.

Bottle pics:

Please let me know are you drooling yet (or not). Hee.

NOTD: OPI Rosy Reflection + Be Mine, You're Fine

image from http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6024/5951174422_8290d7bba1_z.jpg

Let's just say pink foil and I don't really get along, but I supposed I am keeping Rosy Reflection just to be part of my OPI Reflecting Glitters collection. I only have one more (Disco Ball Sparkle) to find to complete it! Also, those little hearts are a little annoying to get on my nails. *pouts*
And check out my cute little Hello Kitty fimo! <3 it!

NOTD: OPI DS Exclusive

Hi y'all!

Today NOTD is OPI DS Exclusive. I was lucky to find this and a few other discontinued shades and Designer Series polishes (hello DS Glamour!) at two different nail salons a few days ago. My wallet hurt, and I think I have to force myself to go on a no-buy for a few months! I hauled a lot this week, too much and the most I have ever gotten in a week.
This polish... applies like a dream. Very distracting.. so distracting that I almost knock into another cyclist yesterday. Dangerous! I shall try to photograph this tomorrow if there is sun, gloomy rainy day today! Have a good day!

Past NOTD: Smitten With Mittens

Absolutely adore this shade, and the name!
I had no idea what happen to the pinky nail, but I had this manicure for a few days before I photographed it!

Past NOTD: Zoya Faye

I'll just let the picture do the talking for this one.

Past NOTD: China Glaze Broken Hearted + OPI Symphony in Gold

One of my favorite past manicures:

I was so delighted that I managed to find a bottle at Vibe after scouring the internet and drugstore for pink crack after seeing it on Scrangie (of course).
I should try this over grey some time soon! :)

Past NOTD: Revlon Not So Blueberry

Revlon Not so Blueberry: It's scented! It's purple!
I remember sniffing my fingers here and there throughout the day! I got kind of sick of the smell at the end of the day but I still can't stop sniffing my fingers. I hope that doesn't become a habit!

Past NOTD: OPI Damone Roberts 1968

I am very thankful I managed to get this polish in a swap last year!
I recall falling head over heels with it after seeing it on ALU's marble design, and so glad to found it on the swap list of a sweetheart whom I swapped with before! :)


I've received a number of compliments when I wore this!
Actually almost sold this on eBay when I was lacking funds, so glad I didn't!
As quote by Damone Roberts "It is not your typical mint green. It has a little touch of gray in it and a little touch of brown" Yup, it really is different than other mint greens I have, and I absolutely love this shade. It is going to be in my stash for a very long time!!
