Have An Easter Togepi!

Hi all! 

Happy Early Easter! I actually had the urge to paint pokemon since I haven't attempted it before and since Easter is about a cute egg pokemon?! ��

Please welcome to the blog - Easter Togepi! 

I'm actually quite impressed with the overall result considering that I haven't painted free hand for a while. 

Colours Used :

Base | Gelist Clear Gel Base, Pa 
White | OPI
Other colours | Acrylic Paint 

I shall attempt to paint other pokemons soon! 

That's it for this post!

Beauty World Oil-In-Cuticle Pen Review

Hello all! 

So here I am sitting at the dining table with my laptop while le boyfriend and le sis-in-law have a chat about me. XD Thought I would blog a while. 

Getting back to my Japan Nail Polish Haul - this is the first product that I used - the 

Beauty World Oil-In-Cuticle Pen

I actually tried it out at the store but I think the sample was already dried out from the cap being missing and all. I bought it anyway since I didn't have a proper cuticle softener..I just trim them after pushing them. 

As per the name, you just have to use it normally as you were to clean your cuticle and the oil will flow out enough to smoothen the movement. My review? I love it! All I have to do is push my cuticles back then move them in a circular motion under the cuticle to remove all the dead skin. After that, just trim the cuticle as per usual. 

My cuticles are in love with it and so am I. This is the first thing I reach for when I need to clean up my cuticles. Friends in Japan, expect me to ask some favours soon! =P 

That's it for this post!

Happy St Patty's Day!

Hi guys! 

I'm finally back from Japan and coincidentally I'm just in time for St Patty's Day!

I couldn't wait to start using my new polishes I got from Japan! These are the colours I used:

Yellow - Bon Bon
Green - Bon Bon
Clover - Sally Hansen
Glitter - Pa
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener 
Gel Base - Gelist Clear Base 

Yes...I started using gel! I'm quite happy with the gel since it makes my nail hard and strong. I'm still looking for a new brand of nail polish remover and a place that sells 100% pure acetone...

Look forward to my nail haul from Japan! I'm so excited and you should be too! 

That's it for this post!

A Japanese Chinese New Year!

Hi Nailies!! 

I'm now in the land of the rising sun! So incredibly happy right now but as promised, here is my Japan mani for CNY!

I had already decided to wear a thermal polish to Japan since I can't really see the transition in Malaysia due to the constant humid weather. Then, I thought it's still CNY so why don't I add a little CNY to it and just on time did my new MoYou London Zodiac plate arrive! I just HAD to order it because I am a ram/goat/sheep and it just felt like it was MY plate you know...

I used the reverse stamping method to get the designs onto my nails and I have to say that Mundodeunas stamping polishes are my all time favourite now as they are opaque, stamp well and do not smudge. The only downside is the smell cause man! is it potent!! 

I am really happy with this mani and hopefully it lasts a few days although I did bring a few bottles to touch up with. Such mix feelings me has right now. ;_;

Colours Used:

Thermal Polish - Miss Ashleigh Pa Rum Pum Plum 
Black - Mundodeunas Black
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl

Well, that's it for this post! If you want to see snipbits of my Japan trip then follow my instagram account @chronosz. Btw, great service by the flight attendant on airasia for being so thoughtful when le boyfriend was having motion sickness. Double thumbs up!!

羊年快乐! Happy Chinese New Year!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Chinese New Year! (although it's already the 8th day of new year) =P

I'll be flying off to Japan tomorrow for a 2 week holiday and I am super duper excited but leaving tomorrow means I won't be with the fam for chap goh meh (15th and last day of new year). Darn you cheap flight tickets! Sad as I may be for missing 5 days of new year at home, I'll have that much and more fun in Japan especially since we've been planning it for a year!

Anyways! Here's my mani on the 1st and 3rd day of CNY! I wanted to get a gel base mani but it just didn't work out especially with the pricing...

I decided to go with a mani inspired by @svetasanders on instagram which features gold nail polish and coincidentally or NOT i purchased the OPI Gwen Stephani 18k No Doubt Gold polish! The gradient didn't really work for me though =P

Colours Used: 

Red - OPI Big Apple Red
White - OPI Alpine Snow
Gold - OPI No Doubt 18k Gold
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener

For the 3rd day, I went with one that I experimented with before. I actually wanted to double stamp it but red just didn't mix well so I left it with white and gold bamboo in the end. 

Colours Used:

White - OPI Alpine Snow
Gold - China Glaze Passion
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener
Stamped with MoYou London Suki Plate

I'll be posting my Japan mani when I reach Japan hopefully! Can't wait to share it with you guys since it'll be my last CNY mani for the year!

That's it for this post! 
Have a Happy Goat Year! Mehhhhh
