NOTD : China Glaze For Audrey Nail Lacquer

After searching high and low, I finally found my favourite Tiffany blue shade from China Glaze! 

This China Glaze For Audrey is a really gorgeous turquoise blue/ aqua/ mint green (or better known as Tiffany blue) nail lacquer which is inspired by Audrey Hepburn's movie Breakfast at Tiffany. 

P/s: the above picture is not edited at except being cropped & watermarked to show you the true colour of the nail polish!

Part of my nails colour on the nails colour wheel so that it's easier for me to look for the colour I want to apply! 

Believe it or not, although I have more than 70 nail polish bottles (I know I'm crazy) lying around at home but I am not an expert in applying nail polish. There are some bad days where I could remove and reapply over and again. 

Review and Swatch of China Glaze For Audrey

I was really happy to find that China Glaze For Audrey's texture was creamy and pigmented. It was really easy to apply and I could even pass with 1 coating *so proud of myself*. And the 2nd coating was to make sure I have an even finishing & shine  I think the nail polish texture & brush was really good for this colour hence it was a breeze to apply. 

If you read the labelled this comes with a hardener hence it would have the benefits of strengthening the nails, resistance to chipping and colour fading! Not only that China Glaze colours are free of DBP, Toluene and added Formaldehyde. And it uses China Clay as a nail hardener instead

And I applied my nail polish last Thursday and until today (5 days and still counting), the colour stay on so well without any chipping because I also used Seche Clear Base Coat & Seche Vita Dry Fast Top Coat this time around! I absolutely love their fast drying top coat - if you love applying nail polish ... you got to own this! 

These 3 are my best beauty purchases of the month! I was glad to grab all these at a special promotion price at my Jessying x China Glaze Soiree party *post will be up soon after I have edit the pics*

China Glaze For Audrey is selling RM49 while Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat and Seche Vita Dry Fast Top Coat is selling at RM45 in their counters located in Isetan KLCC & Gardens Mall.

TIPS : Recyle your chipping nails colour and gives a fresh new design!

Hey lovely people, are you having your Monday Blue! Let me cheer you up by sharing my tips on how to recyle your chipping nails colour and gives a fresh new design! 

I guess everyone loves it when nail polish looked pretty & nail when it was it first applied right? So after a week or two (depends how well you take care of your nails), the nails colour at the tip of our nails usually began to chipped and looked really ugly. And that's usually a signal of us to visit the salon or DIY ourselves to remove it & re-applying it with a new colour. Don't you think is a waste of money & time sometimes?

Instead of the hassle of removing & applying a total new colour...I have my way of keeping the existing nail colour even when the tip of the nail colour has chipped. And it save your time & pocket money too! 

Recycling the base colour of the nail colour & give a touch up!

So after a week more or so when my nail polish started to chipped instead of using the same nail colour to fill it up (which is boring) , I used a different colour and give my nail a fresh new design re-cycling the same colour base which I applied a week ago :) Rather than the tedious waiting period, applying at the tip nail only takes very little time!

I applied Max Factor Sunset Glossfinity Sunset Orange (if not mistaken RM22/10ml) and this is one my favourite colour from my stash because I could never go wrong with this! This bright & pigmented orange colour makes me happy.... as my fingers looked fair & it is so easy to apply! Not only it dried up pretty fast, the colour stays really glossy for more than 10 days (more than what it promised!) - longer when I applied top coat on this! 


So when tip of the nails started chipping & looked ugly, I applied Ciate Paint Pots in Peppermint (RM52). I feel in love with the colour at the first sight, it is fresh mint green (this colour remind me of tiffany blue). 

Instead of applying it like french manicure drawing a line across, I created the melting nail effect to give a little bit design to my nails!

To make sure your nail colour stay longer (double longer for the base colour!) don't forget to apply top coat on top of that! I tried Butter London P.D Quick Topcoat (RM64 for 17.5ml) at Sephora and I'm sold! Dried up amazingly fast & my nail is so glossy and pretty until today... super amazing and better than OPI or Essie ones! I am gonna get this when my top coat at home runs out!  

Seriously it is really easy to do & need not much skill...Best of all, your friends might be thinking you just did your new nails design when in fact you just recycle your base nail colour & give your nails a new face lif by giving a little bit touch up !

Saving your time, money & effort too :)

Try them today! 


Note: Ciate , Butter London nail polish is available in Sephora Malaysia. As for Max Factor Glossfinity, it should be available at all Max Factor counters.

Review : Deborah Lippman Forget You Nail Polish


When I got home the night after meeting the lovely people from Luxola, the first thing I do was to take out the nail polish which was in my goodie bag and start painting my nails! I can't resist when it comes to glittering stuffs! I saw this Deborah Lippman nail polish online review before and was glad to try it myself for the first time! This Deborah Lippman "Forget You" Nailpolish is from the Deborah Lippmann Holiday 2011 collection! Thanks Luxola for giving me this to try !


Review Deborah Lippman Forget You nail polish: It has sheer black colour as the base while the colourful shimer was fine & comes in various sizes. With one layer I can still see the base of my nails but with 2 or 3 coats , the shimmer will fill up all the gaps on my nails! Although texture is a little bit too thick due to the shimmers but it is really easy to apply and it dries up pretty fast! And I'm happy that my nails suddenly looked so glam & pretty for tonight L’OrĂ©al Colour Trophy 2012 Gala Dinner!


Good news is Luxola currently is selling Get This Party Started Holiday 2011 collection! This set of three full size twinkling shades includes Deborah Lippmann’s best-selling party in a bottle, ‘Happy Birthday’ and two variations of the glittering shade, ‘Forget You’ and ‘Candy Shop’, all from the limited edition ‘Holiday’ collection.

Review : Pretty Japanese Gel Manicure at Shige Hair Salon

 
I love my pretty Japanese Gel Manicure which I had during my Raya holiday break! 

Ah well pampering myself on public holiday is the best thing to do!


I did my Japanese Gel Manicure at Shige Hair Salon in Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas. You will be asking me why doing nail services at a nail salon right? Well the owner of the hair salon just introduced the nail services located a floor above the salon.
 

Biju greeted me with her smile when I arrived. She is a Korean but she speaks fluent Japanese (and Korean of course) and a little bit of English :) She told me that she lived in Tokyo for a few years and she learnt her skills as manicurist back in Japan. And now she works in Malaysia because she love the warm weather here and I on the other hand love Japanese winter weather! How irony is it right?


Akiyo the Japanese owner of Shige Hair Salon was there too to meet me & shared with me that their products & machine used in hair salon & nail salon are from Japan & they also use Japanese technique to maximise the effect.
 

 Well I always undecided when comes to colour, after having a consultation session with Akiyo & Biju, I decided to go for Japanese manicure with beige as my nail colour as I wanted something simple & classy.


They also showed me some of the pretty designs which Biju did. Love how Japanese nails design are always full of bling & cute details!  
 


 Bio Sculpture Gel


Bio Sculpture Colour range


 Even all this bling & nails accessories are brought in from Japan!
 

 Biju is very detailed and talent manicurist as each nail design is patiently created by her, step by step.


After 2 hour, my nails have a super pretty makeover! 

Very pretty & classy just like how I wanted!

Do you like my nails design?

I like how Biju gave her full attention and very skillful for the design she created for me. I really like the long lasting effect as the glitter shine & accessorries still remains even after 3 weeks unlike our normal one which can last less than a week! My true story, I was really impressive on how durable of my gel nail polish is pretty impressive considering the colour & accessories still nicely attached on my nail even even after I spring clean my kitchen I had a lot of wiping and brushing! The only donwside is that I woud need to go back there to remove the gel polish! 

 Services available
Oh I checked my Japanese Gel Manicure is RM350, it is not cheap but this is definitely a personalised design :)

Review : Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in 260 - Glitz Blitz


First time I came across nail stripes and from the packaging can see that Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips are so glittery and pretty.



The ingredients


I have the 260 Glitz Blitz for review from Yuberactive!


What comes inside, 2 packs of seals stripes and nail buffer and cuticle stick


Inside the box there are 16 stripes of different sizes which you supposed to match which one suitable for your nail sizes. These nail stripes are long so it would be suitable for people with long nails too!



I followed the instruction on the box to apply and and it is a little bit more difficult than I thought it would be. Because once I paste the nail strip on the nails, I cannot peel it off to repaste to the correct position, as the nail strip is thin and easy to break. I took quite a while to paste and remove the length using the buffer provided. I would think need to practice in order to put on nicely. The excess of the nail strips need to be removed gently using the nail buffer provided in the box, quite simple.



As my nails are short, I discovered that I could use 1 strips for my 2 nails !! Yay for saving!



And the beauty of this Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips is that there is chance of smudging the nail polish and ZERO waiting time for nail polish to dry off!



I learned that these nail strips are made from groundbreaking breathable film, so nails are protected and won't be suffocate! Also like the normal nail polish, just remove it using nail polish remover.



Review : After putting it on, I think the nail strips looked so real & pretty (even my bf didnt' believe it too!) and was literally trying to scratch them off to prove to me I'm lying(OMG!). I like how the surface of the nail strip is smooth eventhough it's a nail polish glitter type. Even though I took some time to apply these nail strips for the first time but I think a few more round of practice it will be easy! Applying nail strips can allow my nails take a break from nail polish (because keep applying them in dark colour will cause the nails becoming yellow). Selling at RM45.90 is kinda pricey but it saves the trouble when I want to have nail polish on my nails fast and yet don't have time to visit the salon! So definitely it's a great product to bring for holiday!

NOTD : My Valentine Peach Cocktail polish set from Japan


I bought this pretty nail polish set last year in a mall in Shinsaibashi, Osaka and totally forgotten about it until recently I found it inside my drawer! I always fancy Japanese nail design and I remembered there are so many pretty nail polish set and I just simply pick up this one because it was the cheapest among all :P It was 609 yen around Rm23 or less (when I bought that time because exchange rate was lower)

So I took out and try it for my first time!



This mini gradient nail polish manicure kit comes in 3 colours.



Each nail polish is labelled with A,B and C and I just followed the steps stated behind the nail polish packaging.



Can't read Japanese so I am just following my instict while looking at the picture tutorial

After 10 mins I'm done because the nail polish dried up pretty fast !!


Was so happy because my nails result is per the picture illustration in the box ! #happy



Can't stop admiring at my nails now!

I think I will to buy some polish when I am in Japan this coming Friday because it is so simple to use & the results are so pretty!


And my nails are perfect for Valentine's Day tomorrow !!!


To those in love, Happy Valentine's Day !
If you're single do enjoy yourself because you still have plenty of choices!

What is Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish ? Read my experience in BMIC Salon


How many times we walked in to the nail salon with ugly/bad shaped nails and came out with clean & beautiful shaped nails



Well its the 5 Steps to basic manicure & pedicure that BMIC Nail Salon did on me that I am going to share in details with you girls here:)



1) Nail Cliper - to cut the nails to the desire length. And its always best to have nails of same length.



2) Shaping file - To shape the nails according to the preference



3) Cuticle Pushers - to push out the dead cuticle off the nails.



4) Cuticle Nipper - To clip off the excess dead cuticle. Gotta to becareful of this and not to cut your own meat .



5) Cushion file - To smoothen up the surface of the nail.


Hola, thats it .. sounds simple ? But of course all this required some patient and skills and most of us love to be pampered than to do it ourselves at home right ?

Apart from having the right tools to do the right job, it is important to have the right product to take care of our cuticle.



Nail and Cuticle Replenishing Oil - To moisture the cuticle and help to reduce growth of cuticle.



And now my nails are ready for nail polish session :D



This time around, I am trying Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish. Have been hearing about this for the longest time and finally got the chance to try it !

Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish is like your normal nail polish but it has the ability to last longer (around 2 weeks or more) because in part because they need to be “cured” under a UV light to dry (around 3-5 mins). Most importantly the gel must be applied and removed by a professional as normal nail polish remover cannot removed them.



No prize for guessing which color I choose ! I always love bling bling , so I chose gold with shinny dusts.



To apply Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish, our nails still need to be applied with base, color and top like our normal nail colouring but BMIC Salon has 3 in one gel nail polish (base, colour and topcoat)



Looked how shiny is my color nail polish !



Applying nail polish for both hands takes around 10 minutes.



Then my hands are put under the UV light box to dry. Takes around 3-5 minutes for the Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish to be completely dry.



The last step of this Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish is to use the special finishing wipe to remove the access on top of the nail. I was told this step is important or our nails will become sticky like cell tape.



Last but not least , I was given a good hands massage with OPI Avo juice. I chose Cris Apple flavour, very refreshing. The reason why the hand massages came after the Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish because our nails need to be completely oil free in order for the nail polish to last longer.



My Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish lasts around 3 weeks (including a week in India).



And the nail polish shine is still there even though it has been almost 3 weeks without any touch up! The downside of this Soak Off UV Gel Nail Polish is that I need to go back to the salon tomorrow to remove the gel nail polish when some of the color at the nail edge are coming off!
