Shimmery Red with Dark Blue Tribal Inspired Stamping

Monday, June 26, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! The weather for the past week and this week has been so hot. Yesterday in particular was probably one of the hottest days so far that it was a little hard to sleep at night. Hopefully, the summer will pass by fast for me since I'm not a fan of this hot weather but in the mean time let's see today's nail art.

Shimmery Red with Dark Blue Tribal Inspired Stamping Nail Art

I used Orly Emberstone on all the nails. I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 7# with stamping plate BP-L054 from Born Pretty Store. To stamp, I used a new Clear Silicone Stamper from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at stamping plate BP-L054 and the Clear Silicone Stamper. I'm liking all the designs included in stamping plate and the Clear Silicone Stamper will make it so much easier for me to pick up larger images too.

I love how these turned out a lot. The stamping plate has some great designs I'm excited to use and the stamper is a great addition since I don't have any clear stampers of this particular size. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Your Job

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by your job. I'm currently working as a bakery assistant at a bakery. I decided to look through my stamping plates to try to find a bakery looking design so here's what I came up with.

Purple Bakery Inspired Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Funky Fingers Jawbreaker on all the nails. Next, I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish 23# with stamping plate BP-L023 from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. Lastly, I finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I thought these turned out pretty cute. I wanted to try stamping over a crelly polish this time since I haven't done it in a while and I thought the result was good. The stamping is subtle which I don't really mind here. What do you think?

Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans

Monday, June 19, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I've been really liking the weather this past week since its been on the cooler side. For some reason, I've been feeling a lot more tired lately too but I think its because I'm working full time and only have two days off each week. Hopefully, my energy will get back up soon. Anyways, let's see the blue polish I'm sharing today.

Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans is a teal with a lighter green shimmer running through it. This color is so hard to describe but I think the lighter green shimmer in it makes it a little bit more unique over the normal shimmery teal polishes out there. The formula and application was great on this polish. I also like the brush on the Sephora by OPI polishes too since its on the wider side which makes application much more easier for me. This is two coats.

I really enjoy the look of this polish and I really should wear it on my nails more often. Its a nice color and I'm happy to own it. What do you think?

MisQs Kaya Nail Polish SP002

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a quick polish swatch to share today so let's see the color then.

MisQs Kaya Nail Polish SP002 is a bright peach creme. When I first saw this color, I knew I was really going to like it. On my nails, it definitely makes my hand look more tan than it really is. The formula was good but I did notice some patchy spots when applying the first coat. However, the second coat definitely smoothed everything out. I think this color would be perfect to wear during the warmer months of Spring and Summer. This is two coats.

I also think this polish would look really great as a pedicure color too. What do you think?

Red with Blue Glitter and White Faded Stamping

Monday, June 12, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! This weekend, my workplace had a karaoke night on Sunday. I didn't go to the last company outing but I was able to go to this one. I haven't really been to karaoke before so it was fun going to one and hearing others sing. Anyways, let's see today's nail art.

Red with Blue Glitter and White Faded Stamping Nail Art

First, I used Sephora by OPI I'm So Sari! on the ring, middle, and thumb nail. Next, I stamped with Milani White On The Spot with stamping plate BP-55 from Born Pretty Store. For the stamper, I used this new Born Pretty Christmas Nail Art Stamper. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. For the rest of the nails, I used Jessica Atomic Red. Finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Here's a closer look at the Born Pretty Christmas Nail Art Stamper. After using this stamper for this manicure, I did find it hard to use. I did like the size of it though since it allows me to pick up larger images. The stampers I've used in the past have been more firm and less sticky than this one. I still need to practice using it because I found it very hard to pick up and transfer the image onto my nails as you can see in this manicure. Every time I tried to pick up the image, it would only partially get the design. I attempted multiple times and this was the best I could do.

I'm not too happy with how these turned out. I think I would have liked it a lot more if the stamping turned out better. I did try picking up the image with a more firmer stamper that I usually use afterwards and it picked up the design much better. If anyone has any tips on how to use this soft and sticky stamper, please let me know. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Zig Zags

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is zig zags. When I think of zig zags, I usually think of a chevron pattern so I went with that idea for the design on my nails. I have some chevron striping tape that I haven't used yet so I thought now would be a good time to try them out. Let's see the design then.

Golden Purple Chevron Nail Art

I used Essence Break Through on all the nails. I used chevron striping tape from Born Pretty Store and placed pieces on the ring and middle nail after making sure the base color was fully dried. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Then I applied OPI It's My Year on top and peeled off the tape. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I'm pretty happy with how the chevron design turned out. I chose to only have two of the nails with the chevron pattern on it since I didn't want my nails to be too busy with the design. What do you think?

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

Monday, June 5, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! The weather last week was so much cooler which made me so happy since I really don't like feeling hot. Anyways, I have a nice summer color to share today so let's see the polish.

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy is a bright sky blue with a subtle blue shimmer in it. This color is suppose to be a neon but I don't think it's that bright to be one. It does dry matte which neon polishes do. Seeing this color, it reminds me so much of pool water. In the swatch pictures, its appears much more lighter than it does in real life though. The formula was a little thin but it applied pretty well for me. If you want to lessen the amount of coats you have to apply, I suggest layering this polish over a white base polish. This is three coats with top coat.

Even though I'm not a huge fan of polishes having me to apply three coats, for this particular color I don't mind it. Its just so pretty on the nails and would be perfect on the nails when your lounging around by the pool too. What do you think?

May 2017 Product Empties

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Here's my product empties for May. I didn't empty out too much for this month but at least I did have a few products still to share with you all. Let's see the products and what I thought of them then.

May 2017 Product Empties

1. Pureplus Honey Bee Lip Treatment
This has been my night time lip care treatment that I've been using. I only use it at night right before I go to sleep because it has quite a thick sticky consistency to it. It was very moisturizing on my lips and I felt like it really helped to keep my lips soft when I'm sleeping. This small tube of it lasted me for quite a while too. I think there's still a little left but its really hard to squeeze out so I thought it was time to toss it out.

2. Onyx Professional Nail Polish Remover Strawberry Scent
I bought these since I wanted to try a nail polish remover other than pure acetone. It was just okay though. It took a longer time to remove my nail polish and the strawberry scent to it was kind of weird. I probably won't repurchase this again unless I really  have to.

3. Edén's Semilla Vitamin C Serum
I was sent this product for review purposes and I really ended up liking it a lot. I like how it made my skin appear more brighter in appearance whenever I used it. It felt cooling and pretty hydrating on the skin too. I do plan on purchasing a new bottle of it once I used up my other skincare products.

4. Edén's Semilla Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Like the Vitamin C Serum, I also really liked this product as well. It was more hydrating on the skin and it made my skin look more glowy whenever I used it. Its definitely a serum I will purchase a full size bottle too.

That's all for my product empties for May. I'm sad to see the two serums finished but I still have a lot of other things to go through before I can repurchase them again. Let me know what you've emptied this month too.

Teal Shimmer with Yellow Floral Pattern Stamping

Monday, May 29, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! Its really starting to heat up where I live. When I go to work, its cool but when I'm off work and going back home, its so humid with no wind. I'm not a huge fan of the hot weather but I checked the weather forecast and its suppose to cool down a bit this week. Anyways, let's see my blue manicure.

Teal Shimmer with Yellow Floral Pattern Stamping Nail Art

I used Sephora by OPI Skinny Jeans on all the nails. I stamped with Ya Qin An 26 with stamping plate BP-27 from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

These turned out looking okay to me. I'm not in love with the floral image I used and I did stamp it on a little crooked on the nails too. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Cartoon

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by a cartoon. I watched a lot of cartoons growing up but I wanted to do one that I haven't done a design for. So, I went with Pokemon for my inspiration for today's nails.

Pokemon Inspired Nail Art

First, I blocked off the middle of my nails using striping tape. Next, I filled in the top with Gosh Hot Coral and the bottom with Salon Perfect Sugar Cube. While the polish was still wet, I peeled off the striping tape. I filled in the negative area with Sweet Color Nail Art Liner in Black from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Then I dotted the center with a black dot. When that fully dried, I dotted on a smaller white dot inside of that. I also used the Sweet Color Nail Art Liner in White to correct any mistakes I made. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

These took me quite a while to create. I thought they turned out okay in the end though. Some of the lines and circles aren't perfect but I tried my best. What do you think?

Orly Spazmatic

Monday, May 22, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! Its starting to get pretty warm and hot where I live right now. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some more posts scheduled and ready ahead of time since the hot weather isn't the best time for me to do my nails. It always seem to bubble during the hot weather for me. Anyways, I have a blue glitter polish to show today.

Orly Spazmatic has bright blue hexagon glitters with small blue shimmers in a clear base. I like this glitter polish mainly because of the small blue shimmers in it. It was unexpected and it makes the polish a little more unique to me I think this glitter would look especially great over a black base polish too. Both the formula and application was good as well. I did have to do a little dabbing in order to get a good amount of those hexagon glitters on the nails though. This is two coats over MisQs Kaya Nail Polish SP002 with top coat.

This was a fun glitter topper. There's a lot of different colored base polishes you can use underneath it to create different looks too. What do you think?

Sephora by OPI Let's Pilé

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Hi everyone! I have a quick polish swatch to share today. This one is a nice pale neutral color so let's see it the polish.

Sephora by OPI Let's Pilé is a pale peachy nude with a subtle silver shimmer in it. I don't usually go for nude colors but its a nice change on the nails every once in a while. However, the formula was pretty watery and thin so application was pretty bad. I even had to be extra careful when applying the color so it wouldn't flood my cuticles. This is four coats.

In the end, this polish was just okay for me. I would have liked it much more if the formula was better though since four coats is a little much for me. I do however still enjoy the color and will go for it when I'm in the mood for something light and simple on the nails. What do you think?

Blue Underwater Themed Stamping

Monday, May 15, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! For today's nail art design, I'm sharing a underwater themed stamping manicure. I used a stamping plate from MoYou London that has a lot of different sea creatures in it so I thought it would look great together on the nails. Let's see the design then.

Blue Underwater Themed Stamping Nail Art

I used China Glaze Towel Boy Toy on all the nails. I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Polish in White with stamping plate MoYou London Fairytale Collection 06. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order from Born Pretty Store. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I thought these turned pretty great. I'm happy that I was able to stamp on these images pretty well onto the nails without any problems too. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Toy

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by a toy. My inspiration is the Tamagotchi toy. I used to play with this little device when I was younger and loved it. I actually still have it and it still works too. Sometimes, I take it out and play with it when I'm in the mood for it. Anyways, let's see the design I created.

Tamagotchi Inspired Nail Art

I used China Glaze Electric Beat on the ring and middle nail. Next, I stamped with the base polish and Ya Qin An #25 together with stamping plate BM-301 from Bundle Monster. After that, I stamped again with Born Pretty Stamping Polish in White with stamping plate BM-311. For the ring and middle nail, I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Polish in Black with stamping plate BP-45 and stamping plate BP-L025. For the rest of the nails, I used Jessica Tangerine Dreamz. Then, I stamped with Ya Qin An #26 with stamping plate BM-415. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order from Born Pretty Store.  Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I had a really hard time coming up with what to do for this week's theme but I'm pleased with how these turned out. Seeing this manicure makes me want to play it again too. What do you think?

Dark Teal Pearl with Black Floral Lace Stamping

Monday, May 8, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! For today's blue manicure, I did some floral lace stamping. I had on this pretty dark teal color on my nails and thought a black floral lace design would go well with it. Let's see the design then.

Dark Teal Pearl with Black Floral Lace Stamping Nail Art

I used Essie Trophy Wife on all the nails. I stamped with Born Pretty Stamping Polish in Black with stamping plate BP-44 from Born Pretty Store. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I really liked how these nails turned out. I didn't really have a specific design in mind so I just went and looked at what stamping plates I haven't used yet. I'm very pleased with how the black floral lace stamping looks on top of the deep teal base. What do you think?

April 2017 Product Empties

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Here's my product empties for the month of April. I was able to finish up quite a few products and I went through my makeup collection again to get rid of some items that have either expired or that I haven't used in a long time. Let's see what the products are then.

April 2017 Product Empties

1. The Yeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All In One Serum
This was my current serum I have been using and I really liked it. It had a nice citrus scent to it and it felt very cooling and hydrating when I applied it on my skin. The bottle lasted me quite a few months too. I have a second bottle of this that I'm going to use soon too. This would definitely be something I would repurchase again.

2. Various Makeup Products
I did another clearing out of my makeup collection again. I'm throwing away a lot of eyeliners that have dried out and other products that are either colors I don't wear or they have expired.

3. Grinif Queen of Rose Water Anti-Wrinkle Eyecream
This was my current eye cream that I was using both day and night. It was moisturizing and the container lasted me for quite a long time too. I liked it and would be a product I would consider repurchasing again.

4. China Glaze Blue Sparrow (Neon)
I hate throwing away any nail polish but this one has just completely dried out and its almost at the end of the bottle too. It was a nice bright blue too.

5. ddung Family Fruits Foam Cleaning Cream
This was my night time cleanser and I thought it was just okay. I didn't particularly love the scent on it and it wasn't anything special. The cleanser was a pretty thick cream that did lather well on the skin though.

6. Youngwoosa Oh! It's lovely and Soft Cream
This was my night time moisturizer and it was good. It didn't have a scent and it was moisturizing when applied on the skin. I felt like it keep my skin feeling soft and hydrated through the night. The tub took me a while to use up too.

That's it for my product empties for April. I'm slowly but surely using up all the skincare products I've accumulated which makes me happy since that means I'm going to be able to purchase new skincare items when I use all of them up. Let me know what you've emptied this month in the comments too.

OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui

Monday, May 1, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! For today's swatch post, I'm sharing one of my favorite blue polishes. So let's see the color then.

OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui is a bright cobalt blue creme. This is probably one of my most favorite blue creme polishes that I own. Every time I wear it on the nails, I'm just reminded with how much I just love the color.  The formula on this polish was really good. I could have even gotten away with one coat if I applied the color on more thickly. Since the formula was good, application on it was very easy for me too. This is two coats.

I'm very pleased with this polish and just love how it looks on my nails. I also like that the color isn't too dark or light too. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Book

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by a book. The book inspiration I chose for these nails came from here. I used to love reading when I was younger but now I don't read as much as I used to. I should really change that though since there's so many great books out there. Anyways, let's see the nail art.

The Road Book Inspired Nail Art

I used OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui on all the nails. I created the black tree silhouettes that's similar to the book cover by free handing the design using the Sweet Color Nail Art Liner in Black from Born Pretty Store. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your order. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

Even though my free hand skills aren't the best, I thought these turned out looking pretty nice. If I had more time, I would have went with a more detailed design but since I was kind of in a rush, I went with a simpler book cover for my inspiration. What do you think?

Essie Trophy Wife

Monday, April 24, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I'm almost caught up with my schedule of posts for the blog which makes me happy. The weather has been a lot better during my days off from work so I was able to take some decent pictures for my blog posts. I have a polish swatch for today so let's see the color of it then.

Essie Trophy Wife is a deep teal pearl. The finish on this polish reminds me a bit of a metallic polish even though its said to have a pearl finish to it. The formula and application on this polish was okay for me. The first application I did was a little streaky but the second coat did smooth everything out. I did notice that this color does leave some brushstrokes on the nails but its not too noticeable in real life unless you look really closely. This is two coats.

Essie Trophy Wife

I don't wear this color a lot but I still think its really nice. Its definitely a color that stands out when you have it on the nails too. What do you think?
