Dirty Mummy Nails

Halloween is coming soon and every nail artists are searching for Halloween nails ideas. This cute little mummies are not my original idea. Not knowing who first started it, I can't credit anyone.

Some people use Konad stamp for mummy nails, but I thought it will be too stiff for a cute little mummies. Personally I really like these little guys. They are very cute and a lot of people has been complimenting them. Even my mom likes them! :D

I used OPI Alpine Snow as the white base. Followed by sponging using OPI Strangers Tide and Sinful Colors Nirvana to make it look dirty and muddy. For the black lines I used LA Colors Nail Art in Black. The striper is indeed thick, that's why the lines on the mummy are thick. You can use simple long nail art brush, but it's a hassle.

Enjoying Life

Hi everyone! Meet Looby.. He is my childhood teddy bear.

Anyway, I am very sorry that I haven't been blogging and uploading videos for awhile. It has been busy (oh come on, lame reason!). I have been out a lot and afterwards I just got too tired to do any blogging or vlogging. I have been thinking a lot about this though. I want to do vlog on my YouTube channel. But I'm not interesting enough.. :( And seeing my face on a video is just too awkward!

With this new laptop I got, I have been trying to get used to it, editing video without iMovie, new Photoshop without all the saving settings and action i made before, everything just made me feel awkward to edit the videos and pictures i took. I actually have a lot of pictures taken while I am not blogging. But I haven't edit it to make it 'bootifhul' enough for my blog.

Well, I hope I can manage to follow up my blog as soon as possible. Cause I miss spreading polish love out there. And as with my YouTube channel, I am not sure when I will be posting new nail art tutorial. Maybe a vlog soon, but who knows! Keep watching!

P.s. My dad has been a big influence to why I haven't been updating for awhile. As for this moment TOO, he is nagging for me to help him on his new laptop. Bleh! Can't I have 10 minutes of myself please, dad?!

Anyway, tutah! Hihi! ♥

Birthday Mani and Update

Hi everyone! As some of you might know, yesterday, 20 Sept, was my birthday! I had a birthday dinner with my family on the 18th because my dad have to go to Malaysia on the 20th. Shucks :(. But anyway, I had a great time! I also got a birthday card from Sara! And an amazing (and also heavy) package from Maria! I will be posting a blog entry about the nail mail / presents from Maria in the future. For now, just enjoy this video of me unwrapping and gasping and squealing...

I know I haven't been updating my so called daily blog, but I have been busy lately, and I hope you understand. Today, I fell sick, and have been spending the day in my bed. Fever, sluggish, headache.. Just everything in one. Why do I get sick after my birthday? Who knows?

OPI Suzi Skis in Pyreness, CG Wireless Holo Top Coat, Nicole One Less Lonely Glitter, Nubar Nail Art Silver Glitter

Anyway, a day before the birthday dinner, I went to our secret nail group and posted that I need an idea for a birthday mani. Something with CG Wireless and gray / purple themed. A lot of you guys wrote amazing ideas to me, and also Maria is so amazing that she even recorded a video of the idea she came up with. But the next day, my mom was rushing me and told me to hurry cause we need to go out and stuff.. So I came up with something quick and simple, which is the picture above. How do you like it? Friends been telling me that they like it, but I was not happy with it. Why? It was hella chunky on the tip cause of the glitters. The next day it chipped and I got mad and peeled it. Then my Chihuahua, Queen, bit me on my thumb, and made a hole on the polish. Lucky it didn't got my nailbed. But yea, that mani lasted 2 days.

I saw that my nails getting yellow-er.. So I trimmed down my nails again.. shorter. My dad told me that I should just cut it all off, well I thought about it, but my nail bed is oval, so if I cut it all off, it will take ages to make a square tip nails again.

Oh! Another thing! My dad has been owing me a new laptop since last year, and apparently he felt bad and got me a brand new laptop for my birthday (THANKS DADDY I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!). It is the Asus G74SX. It is super heavy, 5kgs / 10pounds. But the design is super sleek and omg amazing. The spec is amazing high, and review shows that this laptop is one of the best laptop out there. I agree that I am a gamer, and I need the spec to edit videos too. So this laptop is super perfect! (Don't worry my MacBookPro, I won't abandon you, I'll just erase your memory (reformat) and make you useful, somehow...

Thank you everyone of you who wished me happy birthday. I couldn't thank enough!

Zoya Mod Matte in Gloss!

This post is requested by my silly friend, Karly from NailBehavior. She wanted to know how the Zoya Mod Matte polish looks like with a glossy top coat on. Lolly and Mitzi are of course turns out cream colour, but Phoebe with top coat makes 'her' shimmer glows. They are very pretty both matte and glossy. I super love them so much. And what's best is that their colours are very contrast and bright, not something we found on normal polish. Picture tells a thousand words. :D

If you want to see the 'bright colour contrast' I was telling you about, please click the image and save them to your desktop. View it from your desktop for best image result.

Excuse the messy application, I was in a hurry cause I was going out with my parents and I had to take the picture today, before the sun is out.

I bought these polish myself.

Zoya Mod Matte

I was so stoked when I saw Zoya Mod Matte. It came in these 3 colours, Lolly (pink), Mitzi (green), and Phoebe (blue). At that time I was so amazed at matte finish polish so I just bought it without any thinking. Glad I did, I am super happy with the colours, especially Mitzi. I never seen such a beautiful green before! I thought Phoebe would be a cream matte like others but it turns out to have a micro shimmer finish. Even though blue has been my all time favourite colour, Phoebe didn't win my heart. Application was hell when I had long nails. Why? Because Zoya's brush is not big. I didn't know it because these 3 polish were my first Zoya so when I got it, I was pretty disappointed. The brush would just runs out of polish in the middle of my nail in one stroke. Layering the polish makes it looks gooey and ugly, especially with matte polish, they dry quickly, so every layer and stroke you add is really visible. But if you have cute short nails, this is perfect. Adding a glossy top coat makes them looks amazing too! So its really a win win.
