OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service

*peeks around the door*
Go! Go! Coast is clear!
*runs and ducks into the furthest room along the corridor*
Quick! Secure the package!
*flushing toilet and sounds of opening door*
Mom: "Ah girl you come home already arh!"
*footsteps approaching room*
DAMN! Why must they all be in individual plastic bags?!
Mom (explodes): "Aiyoh! Why you buy clothes again! You have so many clothes already! Cupboard already no space! Bank already no money! Still buy and buy! Then you always just wear the same things! Buy for what!..."

Obviously, I would have sucked as a secret agent. Can't even deal with a "secret" bag of clothes...

No More Monkey Business!

2016 has passed. Soon the Year of the Monkey will pass too. Which means, it's that time of the year again. What else? Spring Cleaning!
Out with the old. But this time round, not so fast when it comes to in-with-the-new. After all, I'm supposed to be moving in a few months time. Drats! Does that mean I have to hide that bag of new clothes somewhere?

Items used:
Base polish in China Glaze Sugar High,
diagonally dry-brushed first with OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby.
A second layer of diagonal dry-brushing with OPI Disco Ball Sparkle.
(Glitter always makes things better!)
Used the last of my PA monkey themed nail stickers. 
See! I even spring-cleaned the monkeys out of The Stash!

OPI The Spy Who Loved Me

*phone pings*
Carousell buyer: I'm interested in this! And will you be posting other colours?
Me: Yes I will be, but that may take a while since I'm in the process of going through my collection of thousands.
*waits for reaction*
Carousell buyer: Alright. Can you reserve this for me and I'll look out for the others that you'll be posting and get them altogether?
Wait. How come she's not amazed that I have a collection of thousands?!

OPI The Spy Who Loved Me,
2 coats + HK Girl TC
*atomic explosion in front of nail polish closet*
Mom: Aiyoh! Why still so many bottles? I thought you say sell already?
The ones who bother are the ones who love you most.

Essence Grey-t to be Here

While cleaning the closet, this was a polish I was prepared to get rid of. That is, until sunlight caught it at a miraculous moment. It was somehow, the only bottle left next to the window. Almost every other bottle was scattered on the floor instead. A tilt of my face, while stretching across for another wayward, rolling bottle. Incidentally, the wayward one was another Essence. Almost as if they were sisters-in-cahoots. Pretty pink shimmers that were forgotten until that one shining moment.
Sometimes, that's all you need. That one shining moment to fall in love all over again.

A 2017 Restart

It's been a long time.
To be honest, I was prepared to let go of this blog. There was a long time when I didn't even paint my nails.
Was there a crisis? Did something happen?
Nope. Nothing. Exactly nothing of that sort happened. There's no excuse, no reason. One morning I woke up and nails and polishes just stopped being interesting.
But sometimes, a break is all that is needed, to re-ignite that interest. A break plus mummy's orders to clean the nail polish closet.
So I guess, for now, I'm back. For how long? That's anyone's guess. I didn't know passion could die a sudden death. But now that I do, it's just enjoy this ride for now.
Happy 2017 people.
That is, if there's still someone reading this.
Polishes used:
Silver base using Lippman Stardust,
dry-brushed with China Glaze 2030.
Glitter "gradient" tips in OPI Which is Witch?

Alanna Renee Reptar

My apologies for the lack of post these days.
Pokémon Go fever has descended on Singapore,
and (heh) I've been busy doing the "catch 'em all" thing.
Yup, even on my birthday,
which was an extremely peaceful day of playing Pokémon Go.
But, no. I haven't forgotten that I still have a life and a couple of blogs to run.
So here I am, trying to get this week's posts down:
Alanna Renee Reptar,
3 coats + 1 coat HK Girl TC.
Milky green base with orange and bluish-lavender hex glitters,
as well as small white and black glitters.
It's definitely unique,
but unfortunately, didn't get my love as I didn't think it looked great on me.
What do you guys think?
Should I sell this off?

Happy 51st Singapore!

It's Singapore's birthday today!
Wishing all Singaporeans a happy National Day!
Oh and since the 2 major telcos are giving out unlimited data today,
have fun catching all those pokemons as well!
Celebratory nails in our national colours!
