Unfinished Business

I really tried my best to work off the sick vibes.
Actually hauled my ass off the couch to attempt a nail art.
 
Unfortunately, I chose to do something that took longer than I had expected.
By the time I was halfway done,
I didn't have the energy left in me to fight the meds.
 
 




 
 
At least, the final manicure still looked completed to the unknown.
Forever, whenever I looked down,
I knew that there should be some gold,
and less negative space.
 
Oh well. Another time I guess.

Misa Like It Like That

Sometimes, I forget there are other brands apart from OPI.
And that's not saying it's because I'm a OPI fan.
 
On the contrary, I'm not particularly loyal to any brands.
Instead, it's always been a question of which colour is nicer, which polish looks better.
 
However, OPI is still easiest to purchase here in sunny Singapore.
Some of the other brands, a wee bit harder,
and yet other brands, a lot harder to get.
 
Misa happens to be one of those harder to find brands.
And I tend to forget I have some of these until I clear The Stash,
or one topples from The Closet as in this case.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Like It Like That,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC
 
Bright, metallic green that's supposed to have a slight blue duochrome.
Unfortunately, sun's so bright,
the green's won much of the battle.
 
 
 
 
 
Last 2 pictures taken in the shade.
Like I said, the blue duochrome is considered slight.

The last of the OPI 2016 Soft Shades collection

I did share in an earlier post that these were actually already swatched.
Just that I fell sick.
 
Oh well. I'm still sick actually.
But I've enough of it and am trying to haul my sick ass up to get some stuff done.
Which includes getting these pictured edited and posted!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This Cost Me a Mint,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
 
Loved this pale mint.
I have some plans for it for nail art.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It's in the Cloud,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
 
Pastel off-white crème.
This one's already been featured in some nail art.

Have I offended some Nail Goddess?

Some days you really wonder if there was some nail goddess that you had offended.
As you might possibly be able to tell,
I haven't been feeling my best recently,
and on some days, painting my nails was even considered too much effort.
 
Then the one day where I get down to some nail art,
and even did it pretty darn well,
topcoat has to screw it all up.
 
 






 
 
Smudges not because I didn't wait,
but because I was trying out the new Chanel Gel TC.
 
 And I had really liked what I did.
Even the black lines that were free handed, were better than usual.
Damn it all to hell and back.

OPI I am What I Amethyst

All right. I actually have swatched the last 3 of the OPI 2016 Soft Shades,
but guess what.
I'm sick AGAIN.
 
This incredible flu just seems to keep going around.
 
I managed to edit one of the remaining 3,
but that's all you'd get for now k.
 
At least until I can haul my ass back to get the camera and upload the others.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am What I Amethyst,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
 
The name irks me,
but it could be because I'm cranky from the fever.

The Lunasol Duo who travelled back with me from Japan

While I was in Japan recently,
I had a bit of opportunity to grab some Japanese brands of nail polish back.
 
This Lunasol duo happened to be part of that tiny haul:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lunasol 06 Shining Gold,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
 
It's my current favourite gold glitter.
If you've seen some of my earlier posts recently,
I've been using this quite a bit for some nail art or glitter tips.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lunasol EX44 Clear Blue,
3 coats + HK Girl TC.
 
Blue tint that reminds me of pool water, of Santorini, of clear lakes.
I would think that this would be pretty awesome for nail art,
except the nail art part of my brain is drawing a blank as to how for the moment.
 
*Regrets not getting more Lunasols while I was in Japan*
