Diamond Cosmestics Decadence

*looks hungrily at the next table*
Me: That fried chicken looks really good.

*takes a deep breath*
Me: And the truffle fries smell sooooo good!

Friend: I thought you said you're on a diet?

Me: On diet doesn't mean I can't look at the menu mah...

*after a couple more deep breaths*

Me: Heck it! Cheat day today! I'll hit the cross-trainer tomorrow...

Friend: I knew it!

Peacock Nails for Mani-Monday

So I'm part of a online nails group that runs a themed manicure-Mondays series. Now I've always been a lurker, looking on in interest, but never really got my ass moving to actually participate in one.
Until recently, when one of my manicures happened to fit one of the recent themes. Since it was already done, I went ahead and posted with the tag.
Yay! Pat on the back for finally participating in one.
Only to find out much later, that I was supposed to post my pictures together with everyone's under a tagged post.
How that slipped by me when I've been following the series is beyond me.
My good friend will simply just put it down to my usual sotong (Singlish for blur) moment.
So this time round, I'm determined to finally get it right!

Peacock nails for Mani-Monday,
and items used were:
OPI Black Onyx for base,
Moyou London Tropical Collection plate 05.
Stamping done with Anna Sui polishes in I902 and I701.
Apologies for the poor clean-up.
It was a rainy day and there appeared a brief moment of sun,
so I was just running out to catch it.

A-England Rose Bower

OK, I think I'm not yet completely over the V-day and CNY red and pinks yet. For some reason, I find myself still reaching for those.
Which is actually surprising, since I don't normally get to those baskets.
Oh well. Bottomline, you guys have got to put up with these reds and pinks just for a little while longer...

China Glaze When Stars Collide

It was a long night for me and my brother yesterday. Something cropped up and we had to problem solve late into the night.
So here's a quickie post for today:

China Glaze When Stars Collide,
2 coats over an aqua base, no TC.
Do note, this one doesn't work well with normal basecoat.

I've just realised after looking at my Instagram, that I've been doing quite a bit of red, pink and gold on those nails. So here's a tiny blue break from all that:

On this 15th day of the CNY

It's the 15th and the last day of the Lunar New Year celebrations today! Of course I had to get my ass moving on a last CNY manicure.
Unfortunately, I met with a wee bit of problem with the stamping while doing it this morning. Guess I still have to experiment with the new clear stampers I bought. It's not as simple as my Konad one, and I'm having a bit of trouble picking up finer lines.
Otherwise, here's my reminder that it's the last day of the CNY celebrations! Happy Yuan Xiao to the ones who celebrate!

Items used:
OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress,
Moyou London stamping polish in Liquid Gold,
and Moyou London Zodiac Collection plate 22.
