Butterflies~

Hey girls!

This mani was done awhile ago but I really loved it. The main feature is the nail sticker on my thumb. Which my lousy phone camera could not really focus on up close. I was organising my polishes a few weeks ago and taking down all that I own (do look out for my whole nail polish stash that I'll be getting up soon, yay! ) as well as digging through my nail stuff and I realised that I own a lot of nail stickers! So yes, I'm gonna start making good use of them since I figure they're a really easy way to spice up any mani. They're just a little tough to remove. Like my acetone ended up breaking it into little pieces and a chore to pick off my nail. 

Anyway, the gorgeous red/bright coral that I used as a base colour is OPI Lunch At The Delhi.

Polish Haul Saturday #15

Hey girls! It's polish haul time~ And it's still Saturday (as I'm typing this) so the title is still valid. I was surprised that I don't have more polish to show you all. I thought I bought more over the past few weeks but I must have overestimated myself haha. Or I might have forgotten what I bought.. 

First, I have 2 Sally Hansen polish.




Sally Hansen Royal Romance. This is a royal purple, I can see how it got its name!


Sally Hansen Lavender Marquis. A very subdued, light pink.

I got these two shades at a sale. It was a buy one, get one free. Normally I do not buy Sally Hansen polish since they're even more pricey than OPI but I couldn't resist nail polish sales.

Next up, I have Nubar polishes. I have not tried this brand before but it was reasonably priced and I'm always willing to try new nail polish brands :)




Nubar Calla Lily Caramel. I couldn't resist this polish, the shimmer was super pretty. I'm not really able to capture the shimmer in the photo but it's a pink shimmer.


Nubar Rockin' the Garden. This one also had a slight shimmer. Hopefully, the swatches will be more obvious when I get them done!

And, lastly, my first Color Club! Haha, this is a Polish Haul of firsts. The place where I normally get my nail polish from started selling both Nubar and Color Club so since it's so much more accessible than it has ever been, I decided to try them. Can't wait to earn some bucks so I can go back and purchase more!


Color Club Antiquated. This looked like a rather unique metallic shade that I didn't own so I decided to get it.

Okay, I've come to the end of my Polish Haul. I hope you enjoyed this post :)

Teal glitter sandwich

Hey girls! I'm so sorry for the 'hiatus'. I hope you all aren't too mad at me and will continue reading my blog. It was totally unplanned because university suddenly just served me up a pile of work and I usually do my nail blogging on my computer and not my laptop so there was no time for me to use my computer to transfer the photos and all. I do apologize for that. Anyway, I've actually realised the pace of university is probably just gonna be like that for the rest of the semester and that I probably should just dedicate some time in a week to update this space. I actually went through a period of time, in my absence, and considered putting blogging on hold but I really can't imagine not having anyone to share my new nail polish and nails with! Like my RL friends can only appreciate so much > < So I've decided to somehow deal with it and maybe even learn better time management :)

Okay! So I have Butter London Slapper. This was a gift from a friend and it's a really beautiful polish but I don't think it really suits my skin tone :( But I would still wear it on my toes though. I wear any colour polish on my toes haha, especially the colours I would never dare to wear on my fingers. Slapper  is a turquoise and is a bit more green than what my photos show. The formula was awesome. If I remember correctly, I only used 2 coats. 





Then, I added Nicole by OPI Honey Dew You Love Me. When I bought this glitter, I knew it would look super pretty over a colour similar to it! And I was right!! The contrast is not as obvious as in real life but I think it really softens the look a little.




Thanks for reading :)

Btw, I've accumulated so much new polish over the past 2 months that I've probably neglected sharing with you all so do look for to the upcoming Polish Hauls! :)
