EZ French Nails review;

hello :) today, i have a small review to share~

a few weeks ago, i was contacted by Raquel over at EZ French Nails to do a review on their quick and easy french nail tips.

this is what i received...

a booklet & applicator.

the booklet contains 9 pages of varying sizes of nail tips for both oval and rounded-squared nails. these pictures were taken after i already did my mani .. thats why there are some stickers missing. and i only took pictures of 6 random pages..

the applicator looks like a pen but it isnt! haha. its a needle tip that helps pick up the nail tip stickers.

here were my end results;

awkward side picture to show how nice and flat the nail tips were. :P i did add one layer of top coat over (top coat is optional).

im not gunna lie, it took me almost 5 minutes to get my first tip on .. but after that, applying the rest of the tips were a piece of cake! its really easy to do once you get the hang of it. (there is also a video provided on the EZ French Nails website on how to apply the tips.) im not someone who usually likes doing french tips on my nails .. but i was wow-ed and in love! with my french mani. my mani lasted almost 2 days, which is what the EZ French Nails website states. the one and only thing i didnt like about my mani was the shape of the curve of the thumb nail; maybe its just my personal preference, but i would've liked it more if the curve wouldve been a bit more curved and less straight.

overall, i was impressed with the EZ French Nail Tips. they were easy to use, super fast to apply, and the best part - - they dont smell! :)

check out the EZ French Nails website for more information and products. and once again, thanks to Raquel for providing me with the products for a review.

have a good one!,

just popping in...

hi! -cant believe its been a little over a month since my last post. i have today off work & i dont have a list of errands to run, so i decided to drop by. i hope everyone has been well ~

i honestly havent been doing much to my nails lately; for some odd reason, my nails have become brittle & they split easily ... and its really sad :( im trying out a new base coat right now, but if anyone has any suggestions to good, strengthening base coats, please feel free to share :)

anyway, just wanted to post a few pictures of the very few nail art stuff i've done.

so simple, right? haha; oh well.

enjoy your weekend!,

going on a brief hiatus;


from the beginning, when i first started my blog, i told myself "im only going to blog for fun. once i feel like blogging has become a chore or a job, im going to stop." - - i've reached that point.

dont get me wrong, i've really enjoy blogging and i am ever so thankful that you guys are always so sweet & supportive, but for the past two months, i havent been having fun with blogging. it really has become like a chore. and people are constantly nagging me. and im not enjoying the emails either; so to anyone who has emailed me in the past month ... you probably wont be getting a response. sorry.

im not going to leave this blog, i promise. i'll miss it too much if i do leave it. but im "going on a brief break" ... not going to worry about this blog for a while. i might randomly pop in every once in a while until i get back into the blogging spirit.

also, i just wanna thank everyone who has been nice & patient all this time, im realllllly thankful.

but for now, this is it.

i'll be back, i promise.
till then,

Crackle FX Polish Review

hi everyone!

it sure has been a while since my last post. last week was a busy week for me & then i was sick over the weekend as well, so i didnt have the time to post. but im better now! so today, i bring you a review!

a few weeks back, the very sweet Nicole of Pink Nails emailed me and asked if i wanted to review some Crackle FX Polishes.

she kindly sent me three bottles for a review:

Sky Blue, White, & Black.

Nicole also sent me a letter with some tips for using the Crackle FX polishes. she suggested to wait until the base coat & nail polish are both done drying before applying the crackle polish...and that Crackle FX is supposed to give a matte look, so to not apply top coat over it.

one coat of Sky Blue over 2 coats of China Glaze's Sea Spray. no top coat.

just for fun, i applied top coat on my middle & pinky nail.

one coat of White over 2 coats of China Glaze's Sea Spray. no top coat.

again, top coat on both middle & pinky nail.

here is one coat of Black over ...i forget what polish im using as base X_____X

and here is with top coat on middle & pinky nail.

im not a big fan of crackle/shatter polishes, but overall, i liked these. White was my favorite~

Crackle Fx polishes are being sold at $3.00 over at Nicole's site, Pink Nails so be sure to check it out! :)

once again, thanks to Nicole for sending me these to review!

have a great one!,

btw, i know that my pictures from my other posts arent working right now. its such a mess. -______- but thank you for letting me know.

2nd Outing with Rachel

on Thursday, i went on my second outing with Rachel~ we first stopped at a Japanese book store where we picked up cute Pa polishes. i must mention that half the store had Hello Kitty stuff...i was so excited! :) after that, we had sushi for lunch & talked about LOTS of stuff :P & we also went to a bakery. everything was so cute. haha then we spent the rest of the day driving around town, going to a few beauty supply stores + Meijers.

it was another fun day :) here's my mini haul..

at the top, my two Pa polishes; A109 + A50. from l-r: Studio M's De-Luxe-Cious, Gosh's Holographic, Essie's Barbuda Banana + Looking For Love, China Glaze's Recycle, Rainstorm, & Wagon Trail.

i'd like to mention that i got Holographic from Rachel. she's so awesome :)

Essie’s Barbuda Banana + Studio M’s Sex Symbol. Barbuda Banana is definitely not B3F & application was kinda sucky. but i didnt expect too much from a yellow polish. i used 3 coats of BB in this picture.

this is it for now. enjoy your weekend!
have a great Easter!,
