Hi guys!  Just a quick post today, I'm so tired and sleepy from work.  Here's the mani that I just finished.  I enjoyed it so much and hope you like it too! :)

I got a slice of watermelon, cherries (which I think are way too big that it looked like apples, lol), pineapple, kiwi and strawberries!

I might have to do this mani again on summer :)  Thanks for looking and happy polishing!

Weekend Haul and Others

Yay! It's weekend.. love it because I get to spend more time on my nails and catch up on sleeping! LOL.. How's your weekend so far? :)

Here's a drugstore haul of local nail polishes --

And then I went to Watson's and found these gorgeous nail decals.  It's Php89 (about less than $2USD) for a box of 6 cute small bottles of nail decals that comes with a nail file, nail glue and an orange stick. 

I got the hexagon glitters, the one with stars and heart shaped decals and my favorite are the multicolored beads.  (sorry, phone pics -- my camera is out of batteries again, ugh!)

And then for the nails -- I have been wearing this since last night.  Sorry, I did not do a good job on the clean up! I don't know what I wanted to achieve too when I started this design.. lol.  Guess I was just kinda experimenting. 

Lastly, I would like to thank Bless of My Colorful Nailart for tagging me on the Stylish Blogger Award.  Sorry, I posted it so late :/ 

The rules are:

1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award -- I just did, thanks again Bless :) 
2. Share 7 things about yourself
- my bf always comment on how clumsy i am. i really am clumsy.. but most people like officemates don't really know that. 
- i am so not organized.  i keep losing things or misplacing them. lol. i sooo hate it!
- 3rd - my fave color is green.
- i still watch japanese anime and manga. i know, it sounds pathetic!
- i am also hooked with kpop and kdrama
- my apt is near korean town like i go to korean grocery sometimes (i love their dairy products and candies or sometimes i crave for their spicy noodles!) and there are korean restaurants, korean spas etc.  i used to teach a korean kid in the neighborhood to speak english but gave up easily hehehe...  and one thing that i've learned, the koreans here are so not like what i've watched on kdramas. oh well.
- 6th - i work the night shift for about 8 years now, i'm not kidding. i got used to it.  i live alone so i get enough rest during the day.  when i visit my parent's house -- they know i'll eat dinner at 2am or so even when it's my day off.  they don't bother me during the day.
-  caffeine runs on my veins.  i'm a coffee addict. if i can't get coffee, i'm drinking diet soda.
3. Award it to 15 recently discovered great bloggers -- I guess everyone's been tagged already.  So if you haven't, I'm tagging you now!
4. Contact these bloggers to tell them about this award

Ok - lengthy post :) Hope you are doing something fun today! Enjoy!

Blue Valentine and Purple mani's

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Sharing to you 2 mani's that I did over the weekend. 

Blue valentine mani -- not that I'm feeling blue this heart's day. In fact, this is one of the happiest day! :) Just wanted some glitter overdose and blue heart shaped decals on my nails. 

Here's another mani in purple.  Very simple.  Nothing complicated.

Sorry for the mess!  No time for clean up.. I just took the pics right after I painted my nails.  Been so busy all week!  Hope you had a great V-day!  Share the love, love, love! <3

Crack Me Up!

Oh my goodness!  I just looove this cracking polish...

I used Mode Cosmetics bright polishes in Diva (hot pink), Say Cheese (bright yellow) and No Curfew (deep orange).  Topped it all off with BK cracking polish in black.

I followed the the trick I read on blogs that I follow -- that is to apply thick if you want larger cracks and thin when you wanted smaller cracks.  I heard it's a pain to remove! But I'll wear this one until tomorrow or so.  Good luck to me! Oooooh!

On this mani, I apply a little thicker on the middle of the nail bed then moving towards the side of the nails with thinner swipes.

Have you tried a crack polish?  How did you find it?  Too bad OPI shatter isn't available here in PI :( I "need" that!

Thanks for looking and great day/night to y'all! :)

Red and Pink V-Day Mani

Pretty simple mani.  My friend said it's flirty! LOL... I used China Glaze Strawberry Fields and LA Colors Ruby Slippers.  Swiped gold glitters and attempted to draw small flowers.  I was only able to do one nail with flowers coz I don't like how it turned out.

Strawberry fields is my favorite pink! I like the gold shimmer.  :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day/evening!
