Miss Ashleigh Baby's Got Blues Swatch

Hey all!
A bit outdated but better now than never XD
So I won Miss Ashleigh's repost competition on instagram!!
My prize was 20% off all products from her webstore!

Check it out!
She's got a lot of nice colours!
I only bought one bottle cause I already went wayyyy over my nail polish budget for the month TT

It was a hard decision to make but I chose Baby's Got Blues in the end!

This shade of blue gives me the light and fluffy feel! 
This is 2 coats btw.

I can't wait till her thermal polishes come out! ^^


P/S: Miss Ashleigh only ships within Australia right now.

Ciate Limited Edition Lemon Fizz Caviar Manicure Set Swatch

Such a long title that is XD

Alright! After I got the Tutti Frutti set, my friend went out and got it AND the Lemon Fizz set!
Me being the nail polish enthusiast immediately asked her,
"Can I swatch it?"

I quite regret painting it at night and I shall tell you...NO
SHOW you why!



After a night of sleep, the colours melted off the caviar pearls.
I found out after the tutti frutti swatch that the caviar pearls melts when you removed them with nail polish remover but I didn't know that the colours came off so easily until this mani.

I really like the Lemon Fizz set. 
If I were to choose and event to wear it at, it would be at a posh dinner that serves more than 3 courses. 

NOTE: I suggest you paint this in the morning of the event you would like to attend because the colour will fade and will look really dull.


P/S: Sorry about the bad photo quality...it was cloudy so the lighting was really bad ><

Ciate Limited Edition Tutti Frutti Caviar Swatch

Hello all!! 
Now this is the post on why I do not have enough cash to buy more sinful colours polishes.

I'm sure you all have heard of caviar manicures where the nail is covered with lots and lots of microbeads!

When I first heard of caviar manis I thought it was pretty gross since ultimately caviar tastes ok at time but does not look all that pretty. Couple that with a lot of bad shots of the mani I found on google...I so didn't want to invest in it.

What made me change my mind?
One Word!


I'm not sure where I first saw the polishes but I was mesmerized!
They were so cute especially with the bows on the bottles XD 
I finally found the brand in a department store and just had to buy it!!! 

Isn't it pretty?!
Not sure if the set has a name on its own but the polishes do.
I found the name!! The set is named after the caviar pearls! It's called 
The pink is called Hoopla and the caviar micro beads are called Tutti Frutti. 
Tutti Frutti sounds fitting since it looks so yummy XD 

It was really simple to do but trying to catch all the runaway micro beads was hard XD 

If you want to try it then I suggest you do cause I love it!
Cheers guys!
See you at the next post!

P/S: To those of you in Melbourne, Australia, if you want to get a hold of this polish -  I found it in MYERS from the MECCA COSMETICA booth of the cosmetics floor. It costs $36AUD and MECCA MAXIMA has it too!!  XD 

Marble, marble and marbling again

Hey nail art peeps!
I know this post is supposed to explain why I don't have the cash for more sinful colours polishes but I haven't gotten to swatching yet.

In the mean time, here's my NOTD a.k.a. Nails of The Day.

My sis-in-law tagged in a water marbling tutorial on fb and I was like "I already know how to do it laaaa" so to prove to her that I did...I did! 

I'm not good at it as you can see.

The colour came out pretty nicely though =)
I used OPI Alpine Snow and Essie Green Apple Mint.

Look forward to the secret swatch k

Butter London Jasper Swatch

Elo Elo!
A friend just asked my why I do not update my blog regularly...
My answer: Lazy ahhhhh

Which is so true! 
So this post is for you! 

First I have to tell you guys a story.

Once upon a time on a nice sunny day. I had Sunday brunch with my girl friends at this cozy french cafe called Roule Galette. This cafe sold yummy crepes and I like them. When we reached the cafe, there were no tables open. As we waited outside the cafe for a table, across the road was a cute little boutique called 'Lady Petrova'. This shop sold cute dress, shoes, and accessories. One of my friends was instantly entranced by it and suddenly found herself walking into it with me following her. As I went deeper into the boutique, I found a small stand with nail polish on it and the closer I got to it, the more excited I got! 


I have seen so many Butter London nail polish swatches and I they all looked so pretty. When I finally got one I was really excited. Trying not to get a polish similar to the others I already own. I got a bottle of Butter London Jasper.

Jasper is a light pastel yellow and it is absolutely beautiful.
I had to paint 3 layers to get an even and opaque shade though. 

I actually saw a similar colour from Sinful Colours and I plan to get it for comparison but not this month.

Why not this month?

Stay tuned!
