CNY! All Ready!

CNY Checklist:

1) CNY Goodies - Check!
2) CNY decorations - Done!
3) Spring cleaning - Effort! But yeah! Spotless!
4) New clothes for CNY - Of course! Still need to check?!
5) Haircut for CNY - Yup! I'll dye it later for the Japan trip instead though. Now too expensive with the CNY surcharge.
6) New shoes - That's together with the clothes
7) Reunion Dinner - Booked!
Looks like it's all good for CNY!

Return of the Little Chicken

All right. I am (finally) getting a wee bit tired of trying to de-stash my OPIs. Pretty sure there'll be some readers who would be sick of seeing just OPIs as well. I've got a few more to put up since they were already swatch-ed and photo-ed.
So just hang in there! Others will be returning to the blog soon!
*Maybe this is meant more for me. Heh.*
Items used:
Base polish in OPI Golden Rules.
Stamped with Konad brown polish and Pueen plate 83.
Added the water decal of the chick for the upcoming Year of the Rooster.
Probably the most un-CNY CNY nails ever.

2017's First Nail Mail!

It's been a long time since I bought anything nail related. At least a good 5 to 6 months?
Well, basically however long I was away from this blog equals however long I haven't done/bought/read anything nail-related. And OH MY GOSH! I have been missing out on so many things! Apparently there's holo and chrome powders now too! I can't wrap my head around the mechanics of those yet either!
Obviously, being away also meant that I haven't bought anything. But that's been rectified. The first thing I did was to get a replacement clear stamper for the one I've lost. Pretty sure the old one's hiding somewhere but heck, a girl's not going to wait for it to re-appear!
And since, Uber Chic's email came in just at the right time, 2017's first nail purchase's from there:
1) Far East Plate 02 - I'm a sucker for oriental designs and this one's perfect for the upcoming CNY!
2) XL Clear stamper
3) 2 clear jelly heads - in case the old one does re-appear and spoils or something
Can't wait to play with these new toys!

OPI Golden Rules

At a recent Lou Hei (tossing of yusheng, a CNY version of salad) with good friends:
*tossing with gusto and cheers*
"Gong Xi Fa Cai!"
"Happy New Year!"
"Good Health!"
"Let's all strike the lottery!"
"Everyone be safe!"
"Have our wishes fulfilled!"
"No more constipation this year!"
*Momentary pause and everyone turns to look at her*
"Aiyah! Good Health can cover that already lah!"
HUAT AH everyone!

Mini Purge

Here's a quick mini de-stash. I only had time enough for these.

The usual rules: 
 Locals and internationals are all welcomed. 
However, I would like to request for your feedback, unless you have purchased or swapped with me before. 

 Any transaction will be done via paypal or POSB bank transfer. 
All prices are in SGD. 
Spend a minimum of SGD$10 and I'll throw in a random free polish. 

I'm also open to swaps. Just that I have been away from the nail polish world for so long I am absolutely clueless as to what I want. So just make an offer if you wanna swap and your list of polishes. I''l let you know as soon as I consult my best friend Google.
Plus, since my whole purpose is to make space, I'll even swap multiples for a single polish! Just be fair and reasonable to me k. 

Internationals, I will only send via registered post. 
I will send the shipping quote after confirmation of order. 

Please place your order in the comment section by stating which ones you would be interested in. Please remember to leave your email, and your country, so that I am able to get in touch with you with a shipping quote. 

I'm posting this on multiple platforms, so it will be a first come first serve deal. 
I'm on Instagram and this blog the most. Less so on facebook. Just FYI. 

 Polishes available are:

All SGD$3 each:
Smitten Polish Adeste Fidelis,
Pahlish Train Underwater,
Pahlish End of Days,

K, that's it for now, but definitely more's coming  :)

I'm Frosty

Come January every year, I am always reminded of Frosty the Snowman. You know, that part where he knows its getting hot and he's going to disappear. I can completely empathise. In fact, I feel as if I'm Frosty as I mourn the passing of the cooler December weather.

Yeah, bring that towel over. You can wipe me off the floor later.

Items used:
Base polish in OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Snowflakes stamping using Moyou London Festive Plate 03 and Konad White stamping polish.
Silver line using Models Inc Silver striper.

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!
