I Won! I Won!

I've been MIA for a while.  Sorry guys! Been busy at work and friends.  And yes, I am checking posts of those lovely ladies I follow, commenting and answering emails... but I never had time posting new stuffs.

OK - here are some good news to share. :) (click pictures to enlarge)

I won Vicki of Vibrant Point of View's giveaway and I will receive 8 Mode nail polishes.  Yippeeeee... I was given a chance to select 8 colors that I like from her petite boutique.  The colors I chose are --10537 - Say Cheese, 10536 - No Curfew, 10607 - Diva, 10611 - Diamonte, 10631 - Party Girl, 10632 - Big Kisses, 10633 - XOXO and 10647 - Blingin'

Isn't amazing?!  I am super excited to receive them.  Check out Vicki's blog and boutique.  I love her nails :)  To thank her, I did these tulips.  I think I need more practice on drawing the tulips but I hope you like them :)

Then another good news came when Lena at The Student's Guide to Nail Polish announced the winner of her giveaway... and that's me! Wooo hooo! Thank you Lena :)  Here's a mani for you, hope ya like it :)

LA Colors: Color Craze NP414 Current

Here's my NOTD.


I had NP414 Current from LA Colors Color Craze Collection.  A little disappointed that it was so sheer with one coat that I can still see my nail line.  After a million coats LOL, it looks pretty.

I am the GREEN girl :)

I thought of showing my stash but I'll post it not by brand but by color LOL.  And yes, I am starting with my favorite color!  I cannot find the other 5 bottles, I am not too organized... but this is a pretty good sample :)


I did not include the green glitters... I just got the watermelon rind by China Glaze.  Most are local brands in my country.  My coin purse, nail file and brush are also green.  My computer is also green.  I am def the green girl.  You should see my room and my office and be sick of green! LOL


What is your favorite color? :)

XO,
Jan

More on Travelling

Found this really gorgeous bangles during my travel down South :)  
Maybe an inspiration to our future mani? :)

Alotta of Catching Up To Do!

I have been busy these past weeks and have not posted for a while :( ... I have a lot on my drafts though that I wasn't able to finish them.. Urgh! Work, work work! But I have not forgotten to check out the posts of those pretty nail bloggers that I follow :)

I went to Davao (southern part of the Philippines, about 1.5 hour plane ride from Manila) last week.  I stayed there for 2 days which sucked because all I did was work and never really went out... On my first day there, I looked for lunch and some fab finds to give as gifts for friends.  I found a lot of native products and nail stickers which cost 50% lesser than those I bought from Manila.  So you already know what I happened.  I bought lots of pretty stickers!  I am so busy to paint flowers so stickers work too! :)

Here's my NOTD.  I used a bronzed gold polish as base and randomly stick orange and purple flowers on it.  On the background is a green weaved native purse that I also bought.  First photo was taken with a flash which showed gold!

XO,
Jan
