Latest Nail polish additions to my collection:

OPI We’ll Always have paris (suede), OPI Pink before you leap and OPI Blushingham Palace. The BNB polish is a pink glitter liner.

Pink before you leap is a glitterly light pink (with blueish flecks) while Blushingham Palace is a gorgeous coral pink.

Now on to my NOTW

China Glaze Candie (from the glitter collection) Made a mistake by applying this over my normal base coat. This is a rather sheer colour and to achieve the colour in the bottle I painted 5-6 coats, followed by 2 thick coats of Seche Vite top coat. I forsee that this will be difficult to remove but for the time being, just enjoying my nails. Since its such a thick coat of nail polish it *kinda* looks like i have acrylic nails on lol.


SInce I’ve added alot of nail polishes recently, I decided to take pics of my entire collection

Bases + nail mask

Top coats









A grand total of 78 bottles….a lot but you never feel that its enough. I would say that the most used would be my glittery reds and vampy purples. Most of my collection (OPI/China Glaze/Orly) were bought online from 8ty8beauty.com or transdesign.com. Very few were bought locally except for the Etude House polishes. Yes I am a polish snob so the bulk of my collection are salon brands. I’m lazy to label all the polishes in the pics individually, but do give me a shout if you’re keen to identify a particular polish 🙂

These are my xmas nails, not very elaborate as I have an external meeting tomorrow and I have to look professional.

This is very glittery, deep green shimmer, after 3 coats. 2 coats are fine but that’s just me. This is easy to apply, took a little longer to dry though. Nothing says xmas like this shade of green!

Apologies for MIA over the apst few weeks, basically I spent time online shopping and basically Christmas came early for me as all my orders arrived:

Another nails of the day, I realised that I can’t use NOTW cos this is the 2nd set I’ve had on my nails today (the first being OPI Lincoln Park At Midnight) which is similiar except for the red-microglitter

I really liked this when I tried it on in the shop, so I had to get it. It’s a vampy shade, dark purple with red micro-glitter. I had a little problems with the application as it was a little watery, so ended up with 3 coats so that it would look opaque. Other than that, it is a nice colour. Since the red glitters are pretty fine,you won’t see it as much if you apply it on your toes (it looked like I had painted my toes a brownish-shade) so I’d rec it for fingers only

I think I went slightly nail polish crazy this week, 4 different colours withn 7 days. And one last thing, since the lighting in my home sucks, I bought a reading lamp for use when I paint my nails. Of course I had to buy the Hello Kitty reading lamp, although my dad asked as I was waiting at the cashier ‘why do you need a hello kitty lamp’. Hello pinkness!

As you can see, I’m really loving my Etude House Petit Darling nail polishes (only $2.50 each). While it can be difficult to apply nail polish with smaller bottles, I haven’t noticed any difference with these and the larger bottles which retail for $7.90. These are a cheap bargain for me, especially since I am going through a creme finish phase that is easily satisfied by these. Do note that I am a vampy polish sorta girl, think dark reds, purples etc.

EH Petit Darling nails BR 301

I just bought this colour yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to see how it looked like on my nails. It does look slighty more red-toned irl. I had a little trouble with the consistency of this one though, it was slightly watery so I had to paint 3 coats for it to look even. I like stores which are sincere in selling you the product (think nail polish removers and cotton pads), plus did I mention the free fluffy pen with any purchase 😉

This is random but the Sephora brand nail polish remover doesn’t remove nail polish that easily. I went swatch crazy at Sephora Ion (thus why my previous nail polish was removed so quickly after less than a week) and had a difficult time removing my old nail polish. It also seemed really greasy as well. I am still planning my transdesign order as there are so many new polishes to collect.
Mascara reviews coming up: Bourjois Volume Clubbing (Ultra Black) vs Fairy Drops (available in Watson’s now for $24.90) vs Majolica Majorca Lashes My Lashes Extend Elegantly (I’ve just found out that this has been discontinued, so I’m really disappointed as it was one mascara I was pretty happy with)
