NOTD: Tribal Nails :)

Hey Guys :)
I have another nail post here for you guys. Its on Tribal Nails :)

and here is the nail art i did :)
Photobucket

I actually didnt know about this trend until i saw Amanda Panda's NOTD That was the first time i saw it and ive been meaning to do it. It seemed really complicated and i was right lol. The only used a black nail art and i had to fill in the green with the huge OPI brush and that was a serious pain lol. It look me about 1 hour only because im very neurotic and i wanted it to be very straight so i had to be meticulous about it. but the end it looks nice and i guess it was worth it? lol

Photobucket

Anyway, Here is the final overview of it :)
• Base: Color Club's Best Dressed List
• Green: OPI's Jade is the New Black
• Lines: L.A. Colors Black Nail Art

So what do you guys think of it? lemme know in the comments

OOTD: Beating the Heat B)

Hey guys!
So there is a heat wave here in NYC this week, and as much as i like staying at home in my nice and newly decorated room, i HAD to go outside. It was about 101 degrees out so i had two big no-no's when i was getting ready. NO Jeans and NO Dark Colors. I wanted something that moved with the very little and very humid wind. So i decided to wear a dress. This is actually a big milestone for me because i NEVER wear dresses. Skirts; sure, ill wear one in a heart beat. But a dress? oh hell no lol. But i had to beat the heat some how right?

Anyway, enough digression. On the the OOTD.

Photobucket
So i decided to wear this super thin dress from H&M. I believe i got it for around $12. It was really nice and light and i LOVED the color.


Photobucket
As for accessories, Im just wearing my usual necklace that i wear everyday. I really forgot where I got it. Ive owned it for some time now.


Photobucket
Now for shoes, i just threw on these super cute sandals that i got from Bakers about 3 years ago. No joke, theyve held on quite well :)

Final Overview:
• Dress: H&M
• Necklace: No clue LOL
• Sandals: Bakers (LONG TIME AGO! :O)

Photobucket


So thats pretty much how i "beat the heat" today. I hope you guys liked it :)

Matching Nail Polish with Rings♥

Hey guys!
I have a different kind of nail polish post for you guys. Its all about matching your nail polish with your rings :D

Ive known about this concept for quite some time. I saw it in Allure magazine like months ago. They showcased a few nail polishes with statement rings or cocktail rings that matched perfectly with nail polishes. Ive always wanted to do that but it is kind of impossible to find a ring that matched my nail polishes. It look me a while to do it, but this is the 3 polishes that matched the rings i have :)


Photobucket



• This is the first polish/ring duo that i saw. I bought the ring at H&M a few days ago, so if you want it, im sure its still there. The polish im using is OPI's Planks a Lot This really matches quite perfectly. Theyre both a nice cream finish and the color is perfect.
Photobucket

Photobucket



• Next is this ring. I got this from my mom and i have no idea where she got it, but i did find a polish that kind of matched it. I found that China Glaze's Flyin' High I matched it with the blue of the ring and it does match it pretty well.
Photobucket

Photobucket



• This is the last duo I have, This isnt the best possible match, but i wasnt gonna go out and buy a nail polish just to match my nail polish lol. But like the last ring, i have no idea where you guys could get this. I think my friend got me this ring, but the polish i paired up with it is Maybelline's La La Lime. I actually thought that the polish was a straight up cream but it actually has a slight shimmer to it which i think matches the green ring nicely.
Photobucket

Photobucket



So have you guys done this before? I certainly havent. I first wanna say, i dont really want you guys to go out and buy a ring or a nail polish just because it matched a ring you have. Try checking out your own collection and maybe their might be a coincidence that you'll have something that matches :)

so let me know which one you guys like the most in the comments below :)

Maybelline - Summer N' Spice

Photobucket

Hey Guys,
This is Maybelline's Summer N' Spice. This is actually the first time i tried out this polish. I wasnt expecting much but the moment i swiped it on, it was SO opaque. Now since it is a shimmer, i kinda did expect it. But nontheless, it was still a little impressive. It wasnt very runny, it was the perfect consistency.

Photobucket


Photobucket


Photobucket

Anyway, for the color. I think that its a very pretty kind of bronze color. It reminds me of rust, but in the very good way. Its kind of like a rose gold color. I dont know how to decribe it, its a very unique color. It has a kind of silver sheen too. I really like it.

Anyway, how do you guys feel about this color? lemme know in the comments :)

NOTD: Ube Swirl :P

Hey guys
So i got the hang of the marbling business and this is my first offical marble manicure :)

Photobucket

Since this is marbling, not all of the patterns will look the same. They actually dont look very similar except for the colors I used *which will be listed below*

They just kinda look like swirls, and because of the colors i used. Hence the name "Ube Swirl" (Where are my filipinos at? :D) Well Ube is a delicacy in the Philippines and its VERY commonly used in all types of desserts. Its used in cakes, shakes, ice cream, you name it, and its probably been done :) If you guys are unfamiliar with Ube, the english name of it is Purple Yam. Its REALLY good but i digress.

Photobucket

Here is a shot of my left hand.

Here is a shot of my right hand (The Thumb design is my favorite :D)

Urban Decay Haul :D

Hey guys!
i wanted to share with you guys my Urban Decay Haul! :D
Im SO excited for this! this is one part of my mom's birthday gift for me.

Photobucket
But anyway, i wanna go ahead and talk about Urban Decay first. I actually ordered from the actual Urban Decay website as opposed to Sephora or Ulta.

Lemme just say, they have a pretty good shipping and customer service. They sent me an email about how they might ship the package a little late so i figured it would be late, but it got it about a few days from when i recieved the email about the shipping confirmation.


Photobucket
I opened the box and I saw so much paper in the box. The first thing i was doing was looking for my products but when i calmed down a little bit, i saw that the paper they wrapped everything in was this really pretty light lavender/purple color. i LOVED it :) im keeping the paper just because of it

Photobucket
The main reason for my UD haul, is to get my hands on the Naked Palette! i was SO happy that i finally have my hands on this. The minute i opened it, i tried it out :)

Photobucket
I unfortunately got the one with the brush. I like the brush though. Its not so bad. Its suppose to be an eyeshadow brush but it feel a little bit more like a very tiny concealer brush, but it still works fine.

Photobucket
Other than, i got this cream eyeshadow, i kinda only got it because i wanted free shipping but i did get this in my most favorite color ever. This is in the shade Mushroom, i have the same shadow shade in a palette and thats my most favorite eyeshadow shade out of all of my eyeshadows. Im hoping the cream shadow would be the same


Now the time that i ordered from them, they were give out 3 deluxe samples and theyre pretty big samples.


Photobucket
I got this Lip Junkie Lipgloss in Wallflower. Its a really nice lipgloss, i used to own one but i stopped buying it because its way to expensive

Photobucket
I got this mini version of their infamous UDPP in Eden. this was partially the main reason i ordered from them because of this. This is usually $5 in Sephora so the fact that UD just gave this away is pretty incredible.


Photobucket
They also threw in this sample of the UD Stardurst Eyeshadow in Retrograde. I heard some great things about this, so im excited to try it out :)

Photobucket
The last sample i got is the Pocket Rocket lipgloss. I havent opened it, its going straight to my sample box.


So that it for my UD haul. How do you guys feel about Urban Decay? lemme know in the comments :) Personally, i love them. They were the first brand i weened myself from MAC.

1st Time Water Marbling ♥

Photobucket

Hey Guys,
So this is My 1st Time Water-Marbling. Now before i start, i kinda went a little swirl happy, and i kinda just grabbed whatever polishes i could. ill try to name what polishes i used but i have a feeling im not gonna have a full list. For my first time, i actually didnt think i did too bad of a job. I did watch a TON of water marbling videos 1st before doing this. My Favorite is Colette's Youtube or check out her blog "My Simple Pleasures", she does some really cool marble designs.

Anyway, i watched about a dozen of her videos and copied her own technique so mind you, this is all her techniques and i must say, for my first time, she made it really easier and less messy so thanks for the tips Colette :)

Photobucket

Now on to the nails, For a base, i used OPI's Fiercely Fiona because thats what i was wearing all week


• Thumb: Wet n Wild's Sapphire Blue and China Glaze's In The Limelight
Photobucket



• Pointer Finger: China Glaze's White on White and Wet n Wild's Lavender Pearlescent
Photobucket



• Middle Finger: China Glaze's White on White, Wet n Wild's Lavender Pearlescent and China Glaze's Pink Underground
Photobucket



• Ring Finger: China Glaze's In The Limelight, Essie's Going Incognito, and Essie's Chinchilly *This one is my favorite out of all of it them :)
Photobucket



• Pinky: OPI's Done Out in Deco and Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear Purple Potion
Photobucket




So on my opinion on water marbling, I think that you need some patience for it, theres so many steps to it! thats why watching some videos on it might help. I recommend this to someone with a fairly big nail polish collection, which im sure most people here have lol. This is a VERY polish consuming method and if you have some polishes that are just sitting in the back of your collection, (like me) i suggest this method. I actually like this! i have about 120+ polishes and thats after i gave a lot away to my friends. It gives me more use of my polishes that i dont ever use.


So which one is your favorite? have you tried water marbling? lemme know in the comments :)

OPI - Fiercely Fiona :)

Photobucket

Hey guys,
So this is OPI's Fiercely Fiona. Its summer and im on a serious yellow kick. I tried to look into my collection for one that wasnt sheer. This was the only one i had.

Photobucket

Now for the color, i would say that is isnt fully yellow. It kinda has a hint of green. this is from the Shrek Collection from last year i think, so i think that OPI was centering this color on what they thought Fiona's skin would look like if she was real and i say good job OPI :) from personal experiences, i say this looks a LOT like an unrippen mango. i think filipinos know what im talking about right? mango with bagoong, YUM :D

Photobucket

Photobucket

Now since i raved about the color so much, lets talk about its formulation. I really do love the color but i BARELY wear this polish and theres a reason for it. The formula of this is SO ridiculously difficult to work with! It is opaque, ill give it that but it applies so streaky and kinda really hard. I hate having to deal with it. I take about 3 coats for a nice even and not bumpy coat.

Other than the bad formulation, its not a bad color. it really suits my skin tone for a yellow. This color stains so i do have to wear a base coat but then again i really didnt mind so much.

So how do you feel about this color? lemme know in the comments :)

till later

Recent Obsessions: Nude Pumps and Lady GaGa ♥

Photobucket

Hey Guys,
I havent done any of these "Recent Obsession" posts in a while, and well i have a HUGE obsession/s lately. I wanted to share it with you guys.

As you can see from the title, my Recent Obsession has been Nude Pumps and Lady GaGa
This might be a huge turn from what I usually post here, which is mostly just nail swatches and nail arts. But hey, the only thing sure in life is change, and here is a little change from the routine.

I think i'll be doing more of these posts because theyre kinda quick and it gives more of a personal side of me. So here we go :)

Photobucket

Now i know nude pumps are NOT a new concept. They've been around for quite some time and i think that Kim Kardashian made them a house hold concept. They make your legs longer, and make your but elevated, which is ALWAYS a plus.

Anyway, my 18th birthday is about to come and i needed new shoes for my Debut (a kind of filipino sweet 16, but for girls its on your 18th birthday and for guys its on their 21st) I decided to pick up my first nude pumps. EVER. I cant believe that i never had these in my life before! Now to be totally fair, these are low pumps only because i cannot walk in really tall heels for the life of me, and im 5'6, i dont really think i need any more height.

Photobucket

The pumps i got (well, what my mom got for me) are from Kensie. Im not the most familiar with this brand, but if they made these, then they must be amazing right? These were originally $50, but we got them for $35. If you guys wanna snag yourself a pair, i found them HERE. Well anyway, these are SO comfy, the minute that we got it, i threw them on and put my sandals in the bag. They still make me kinda tall, but eh i can deal with the height a little. They are a little light for me because im a tiny bit dark skinned, but they still look very nude and very gorgeous. They are DEFINITELY obsession material :)

Photobucket

So for my next obsession is Lady GaGa. To be fair, ive been obsessed with her for quite some time. You are in the presence of one of her little monster. Well I actually caved and got her CD. This might be the first CD that ive bought in a long time. The last one was probably Hilary Duff haha!

But anyway, i wanted to share with you guys my favorite song out of all of the songs in the album, and thats "Hair" Not only is it an amazing song, if you saw the comments on the youtube video on this, you would cry. I did. I was SO touched by the nice comments that people said about how the song touched them. I really shed a tear. I was so touching and it was amazing what kind of effect she had on them. On that note, Lady GaGa is definitely Obsession material.

So thats it for now guys,
