Colors by Llarowe: Single Ladies

I love this polish.
It's a polish with a really simple concept,
but it turned out so amazing.
I couldn't quit staring at it whenever I stood in the sun.
 
 
 
 
Colors by Llarowe Single Ladies,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
Rainbow glitters in a black base.

Last 2 pictures were taken in the lift because I couldn't quit staring at them there too.

Dance Legend Rich Black Collection: Green Mamba

I first saw this polish online on Nihrida's blog, and knew I had to get my hands on it.
I don't have as pretty photos as those Nihrida posted,
but here's my version of Dance Legend's Green Mamba:
 
 
 
 
1 coat Green Mamba over A-England Camelot,
topped with HK Girl TC.
Love how those flakies shift from green to blue.

Zoya Pixie Dust: Nyx

Ok, it took me a really long time
before I decided to get my hands on a couple of the Pixie Dust polishes from Zoya.
In fact, if it wasn't for the really good prices offered at the Asia Beautyfair,
I doubt I'll own any at all even now.
All for the simple reason of loving my nails to be smooth and shiny.
 
I have to say though, I'm glad I picked them up.
I'm not saying I'll go gaga and start buying up all the textures out there in the market,
but I sure as well wouldn't mind a few more Pixie Dust polishes from Zoya in The Stash.
 
 
 
 
 
Zoya Nyx,
3 coats, no TC.
Love the soft muted blue-grey.

Nail Art Weekend: Wooden Blocks

Nowadays, whenever I'm in the mood for nail art, but don't really have the inspiration,
I resort to stickers, water decals or stamping.
This was done on one of those days.
Items used: OPI Did you 'ear about Van Gogh?,
Konad Brown polish,
and Moyou London Pro Collection image plate #03

China Glaze City Flourish Collection: Metro Pollen-Tin

By the time this post is up,
I should just be arriving at the Kansai International Airport in Osaka, Japan!
Yeah! I'm going spend the next 10 days holidaying in the Land of the Rising Sun!
Of course, I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for nail goodies during these 10 days as well!
It is afterall,
the land of kawaii or ostentatious nail art as well!
 
In the meantime, I've scheduled some posts while I'm away.
It's not a lot, since the weather refused to cooperate before I left.
However, when I'm back,
you guys can stay tuned for a Japan theme week!
 
 
 
 
China Glaze Metro Pollen-Tin from the recent City Flourish Collection,
3 coats + 1 coat HK Girl TC.
Yellow crème with a tinge of dusty.
It was also the hardest one for me out the collection worn so far.
You can even see where the polish is still lumpy despite all my carefulness.

Hated this one.

American Apparel Peacock

I haven't been able to get photos lately.
It either rains when I'm getting ready to photograph those nails,
or else the clouds or haze gets in the way.
 
So this one's from the archives:
 
 
 
 
AA Peacock,
2 coats + 1 coat HK Girl TC.
Teal crème.

Nail Art Weekend: Semi-Precious Stone: Turquoise

Nope, I haven't forgotten about nail art weekend.
Just that I was out on a day trip across Singapore's borders,
and could only deal with the photos now.
 
Anyway, I decided to try a new technique yesterday.
Love the end result even though clean up was a major pain in the ass.
 
 
 
 
Polishes used are:
A-England Camelot,
A-England Galahad,
and OPI The Man with the Golden Gun.
 
I love how this reminds me of turquoise.
When I forget the pain of the clean-up,
I'm going to try a white and gold version.
