AQmore Vogue

In a previous post, I featured an amazing water-based nail polish that I bought from the Younique Nails website. This website goes by the name Uniqso now! Not only did they change their name, they also extended their collection - water-based nail polishes, nail art related products, colour lenses and many more. Make sure you check them out!

Now, let's take a look at AQmore water-based nail polish Vogue:

Vogue is a beautiful mauve with irregular shaped silver glitter particles. Some glitter particles reminded me of those tiny scrushed sea shells that are used for nail art. The formula was easy to work with, but I couldn't smoothen the glitters over the nails. So after 2 coats, the colour reached opacity but the surface of the nails was rather 'rough'.

Luckily I could fix this by using one coat of AQmore topcoat and that is how it looked like:

Have a wonderful one!!!

1st Blog Award

Yeah!!! It's already my 50th post...so what makes a better 50th post than one featuring an award. I am so grateful to receive this award from the two lovely ladies: KarenD and Monique. Thank you so much!!!

The rules of the Kreativ Blogger Award:

~ Share 10 facts about yourself
~ Tag 10 bloggers and let them know about it

Here we go:

1 ~ My favourite 'colour' is black. However, that is not the colour I usually wear on the nails. For mani's I prefer nude colours and turquoise.

2 ~ I change mani at least two times a week, because I have work-friendly mani's and work-unfriendly mani's. To be honest, I don't think colleagues and customers care about the colours I wear on my nails, but somehow I do not wear dark colours at work.

3 ~ There is this crazy thing about notebooks that I can't resist. I have a 'little' collection of notebooks with adorable covers and cute drawings inside. It's just..uh..I do not use them properly 'cos I haven't write anything in one yet.

4 ~ When it rains, I love to watch it pours down...

5 ~ Chocolate...chocolate...chocolate...do I need to say more?

6 ~ Everytime someone introduces himself/herself, I forget their names a moment later. It is really frustrating, because I do repeat it a few times in my head...but somehow...

7 ~ My favourite movie genres: action, comedy, fantasy and romance. What I don't like are horror and war movies.

8 ~ I am not a fan of a particular singer/group, but I do like music a lot!

9 ~ Song of the moment: B2ST - On Rainy Days (Korean)

10 ~ I want to learn to play the piano someday.

And the award goes to:


Have a great one!!!

Sorbet with Golden Topping

It's been a while...

Today I have for you a simple mani featuring OPI Houston We Have A Purple from the Texas collection. When this OPI Texas Collection was launched, the first colours that caught my eye were the beautiful red/purple ones. Little did I know that these came with a total different finish which OPI named it 'the sorbet' finish.

I'm still not used to wear any red-coloured polish just like that, so I had to 'cover' the colour a bit. I gave my index and ring finger a golden frame using Golden Rose's nail art striper no. 108. I stamped a design from Konad image plate M76 with China Glaze Passion on my middle finger. As for my pinkie, I placed golden metal beads on a layer of topcoat.

I really love this sorbet finish a lot. What do you think about this kind of finish?

Have a wonderful one!!!
