Bon Bon 37 & 38 Review

Hey guys! 

This is wayyyyy overdue but better late than never rite?! These two polishes are from my Japan Nail Polish Haul from a month back and they are Bon Bon polishes!! No...the bottles are not the shape of bon bons sadly...anyways! Here are the swatches.

From left: Bon Bon 38 & 37

Bon Bon 37 is a kiwi green pastel colour that is opaque in three to four coats. I quite like the colour when opaque and in hindsight, it might have been a better idea to paint it over a coat of white. As for application (applies for Bon Bon 38 also), it was extremely streaky...I had to get a gigantic dollop of polish to cover the nail evenly. Thank goodness it turned out nice and thin. 

Bon Bon 38 is a bright yellow pastel and I will never use it again! Why? It stains...really really REALLY bad! I would have to stay that it's in the same league with Sinful Colors Pistache... Mind you that I was wearing a clear gel base under the yellow and the difference of colour of my right and left hanf nails once removed was very apparent! 

My verdict for the polishes...2/5...they wasn't much choice where I went and worse yet that it stained my naila so badly...

That's it for this post! I hope it didn't disappoint you guys much...

A Popsicle Wedding!

Hey guys! 

I am currently in Jakarta now on a short trip with the le boyfriend to do a little sightseeing and to attend his friend's wedding. While I'm in the hotel, I might as well share my mani for the wedding! 

Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener Top Coat
White - OPI Alpine Snow 
Coral - Essie Tart Deco
Pink - Picture Polish Watermelon 
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl 
White Heart - Ace Gel 

I recently went to a seminar by Yoko Matsuda on gel designs hosted by Haru Global Beauty. I learnt how to make the icing gel then. It was such an amazing experience especially since it was my first time handling gel! 

That's it for this post!

Stamping Wonders

Hey guys! 

I thought I would share some of my latest manis with you just in case you don't follow me on my instagram @chronosz. =)

I did this mani with no particular design in mind...I just wanted my current fav Canmake polish and some sort of design. So, I flipped through my stamping plates for a nice design and decided on one from BM-404. I used reverse stamping to get the pattern on. 

Polishes used :

Base coat - Essence Ultra Strong Nail Hardener 
Green - Canmake 406C
Gold Glitter - OPI Don't Speak 18k Gold Top Coat 
Stamping Polish - Laval Black
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl 

This is my current NOTD but not for long!! I'm going for something girly next! 

As you can tell, I've been doing some stamping here and there. This mani is a double stamped butterfly design also using a Bundle Monster plate. 

Colours Used : 
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener Top Coat 
Blue Texture Polish - Miss Ashleigh See You In Santorini
White stamping polish - Mundodeunas white
Purple polish - Color Club Ms. Socialite 
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Bundle Moster Stamping Plate BM-307

I wasn't really feeling this mani...but others did so that's good enough for me! Look forward to more swatches! 

That's it for this post!
