I’ve been an awful blogger. I mean really. I got into a sort of funk and the longer I hadn’t posted the easier it was to keep on not-posting. I’m going to be turning that around; although I still can’t find my camera charger to take new pictures, I still have some unposted material to put up until I find it/buy a new one. Anyway, happy new year everyone! :>
Almost forgot how gorgeous and vibrant Wet n Wild Mega Liner in Turquoise is! I haven’t used it in a while and couldn’t stop checking out my eyes in the mirror after applying it. You can see my original review here.

Orly Ancient Jade • Konad white polish • Konad image plate m26 • Orly Spark I only decided to dot the centers of the flowers at the last minute; if I do this design again I think I’d want a yellow Orly Spark accent nail :>

sally hansen insta-dri in blue-away
I really fell for the colour in this bottle the first time I saw it: it’s a sky-blue that has enough brightness to it to keep it out of pastel territory. But as I’ve mentioned, the thick formula of this line makes it a little tricky to apply—I had some streakiness and my too-thick coats caused it to chip prematurely. I don’t know if I’d use this polish on my own...

exams are finally over~~~
I just finished probably one of the most stressful semesters I’ve ever had, including something like 6 team projects. I can finally enjoy my summer—or whatever is left of it. I’ve been neglecting this blog lately but now I can work on it guilt-free! Nail post tomorrow, and a long-overdue review for the Garnier eye roller later in the week. In the meantime, ask me...

peachy breeze + Konad floral pattern
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Peachy Breeze • Konad white polish • Konad image plate m20 I really like this polish: it’s a really fun, bright coral that’s perfect for the beach. Insta-Dri polishes have a somewhat thick formula that takes getting used to, but can be opaque with just one coat. I’ve been wearing it for 4 days with no chips or tipwear. You can see that the flowers got a...
tokidoki rollerballs @ sephora
Look what I found at Sephora! Tokidoki rollerballs :> As usual, Tokidoki displays are almost-nauseatingly cute and very eye-catching! Whenever I see a new Tokidoki display, it instantly grabs my attention (my wallet, fortunately, is just barely spared) Each fragrance is inspired by a particular Tokidoki character. The heads of the corresponding character fit on top of the cap of each...

rimmel english rose with fishnet accent nail
Rimmel English Rose • Essie Pink Diamond • Konad image plate m57 The real colour of English Rose is somewhere between the two pictures.. it’s definitely not a brick red: it’s more of a berry and much cooler, but not as bright as the flash picture. Pink Diamond is a pearly light pink, so it ends up looking a bit like a subtle nude on top of English Rose. I got a lot of compliments...
