NOTD: Galaxy


I pick colors, according to my mood. Christmas is comin'... in 3 days' time! I don't really celebrate Christmas, but I do enjoy the festive mood. The elaborate decorations in town and such. But no, not the crowd pls.

  • Skinfood Nail Vita BW701
  • Fasio Nail Color 95 Galaxy Blue
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Thickener
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


The photos don't justify how beautiful the nails look in real life. Super bling!

I only applied 1 coat of Skinfood Nail Vita BW701 (enough for an opaque finish), after applying Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Thickener as the base. Then, I apply a thin layer of Fasio Nail Color 95 Galaxy Blue, then a thicker layer to distribute the glitter bits. Last but not least, my ever trusty Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Fasio Nail Color 95 Galaxy Blue is L O V E! A tealish clear base, with super-duper-pretty holographic silver hexagon glitters and tinier ones (not hexagon ones though). Dazzling!

The shimmery black nail color just simply makes the glittery bits 'POP'!

What's on your nails today?

Food For Thought? ♥


Food For Thought, anyone?

I went to the branch located at Queens St one fine morning, just to have pancake breakfast. Had a hard time finding the place though. Thanks to my beloved iPhone, I managed to find the place afterall. Ahh I simply can't live without iPhone seriously. Waiting for iPhone 5 to be launched :p

It was quite a cosy place. Not very noisy and crowded, prolly b'coz it was a weekday morning. I was tweeting away while waiting for my pancakes to be served. Oh, I ordered Pancakes with Mixed Berries. No coffee/tea, just warm water for me (: And btw, all pancakes are served with Fresh Cream & Gula Melaka Syrup. I waited for about 15mins?

Finally, my breakfast came! Looking real good eh. Using my iPhone, I twitpic-ed this. I must say, it was a really huge serving. I was quite full just finishing almost half of this. To think I wanted to order additional Garlic Mushrooms -.-

It was a nice combination of sweet (gula melaka syrup) and sour (mixed berries). FFT's pancakes tasted totally different from Cedele's. The outlook is different. Think I still prefer the latter as I thought the taste was just right, not too overwhelming in a sense. I do like FFT's just that the taste is too "heavy" IMO. Hmm I like the taste of fresh cream very much :x

My NOTD, using The Face Shop Nail Base Coat + Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin' Jade + Clatty Nail Color #362 + Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.


Do you like pancakes? Where do you recommend for seriously good pancakes? Let me know pls

NOTD: Grunge + Fbomb (feat. Urban Decay Apocalyptic Nail Kit & Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat)


Phew! What a long title post! I'm a total noob when it comes to nails. And seriously, I hate it when I've to redo my nails again and again coz I always seem to mess up my nails somehow. And it doesn't help that the nails take eons to dry :/ That is the reason why I rather go for mani/pedi instead of wasting my time DIY-ing.

It was not until I stumbled upon this wonderful website recommended by Hazel and I bought my very first dry fast top coats (Seche Vite & Poshe). Now, I find myself DIY-ing my nails rather than go for mani/pedi (once in awhile lol xD).

These are the products I used. The Urban Decay ones are part of the Apocalyptic Nail Kit I bought last year. Orly Top 2 Bottom (Basecoat & Topcoat All-In-One), was part of a French Manicure Kit I bought sometime back at Sasa. Rather fast drying and non-yellowing. Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is my saviour coz I no longer need to wait THAT long for my nails to dry! I love the shiny glossy finish that it creates. It helps strengthen my soft brittle nails and after 4 days, there's no signs of chipping. In the past, my manicured nails chip usually on the same day itself. The feeling sucks totally :/ Thank goodness I bought Seche Vite!

Shades: White Widow (white sparkle), Gunmetal (gunmetal sparkle), Apocalypse (black-purple), Grunge (metallic peacock), Meltdown (royal purple), Big Bang (sparkling hot pink), Fbomb (true red)

Fbomb, a true red color (?). A deep red, I reckon. This photo above is the closest to the actual color. The formula isn't goopy(gooey) or watery, which is pretty easy to apply. Just 1-2 coats will achieve an even creamy finish. Fret not, it's not sheer at all. It's definitely not a unique color yea (: And the best part, the color makes my hands appear fairer!

And so, I applied Orly Top 2 Bottom (Basecoat & Topcoat All-In-One), then Fbomb and finished off with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Pardon the imperfections T^T

Grunge, a metallic peacock color (?). I would decribe the color as a midnight blue color (above photo closest match to actual color) coz it looks much darker when applied. Formula wise, it's similar to Fbomb I think. It is easy to work with, no worries. Actually 1 coat is enough for a decent metallic finish. See the pretty microshimmery bits? The microshimmery bits are close to non-existence when applied =.=

Application procedure is same as above. I don't like my feet coz they're veiny, dark and fugly. Look like men's feet :,/ How I wish I've fairer, nicer looking feet......

Get what I mean? The BIG difference =.=ll
