Liese Hair dye in Cassis Berry; NOTW: Cuppie cake nails


On the way to dinner in Bt. Ferringhi

Ooo, the merciless sun! Its too hot to do any FOTD/EOTD lately. Even putting on everyday make up has become a challenge since my foundation and concealer melts off before I finish my entire face. I've taken to putting on my foundation last to no avail.

Out of sheer boredom, I dyed my hair today. Had Elisa pick out a colour for me and she mentioned something about me needing some colour so she picked Liese's Cassis Berry. I must admit that I was a little apprehensive about the colour choice but she has better taste than me and I absolutely trust her.

My roots isn't too bad yet but the weather was hot and I had nothing to do. The instruction on YouTube seems easy enough.

So what do I think of it?

PROS
Very simple to use and I don't need my mom's help to dye my hair.
The colour turned out very vibrant.

CONS
The smell of ammonia was super strong! While colouring the side of my head, the smell was enough to sting my eyes. Since I'm such a smart pants, I did it in my room while the curtains down and closed door. I gagged!

With my head full of foam, I managed to smear it on my waster paper basket, curtains, wooden divider and sink top. I R GENIUS!


ARGH! I've been shot!
Ooo, If I have left it, I would have had cool looking Elvis Presley-like sideburns!

The weather was so hot that while waiting for my hair to take in the colour, the foam became runny and ran down my chin. If I had a beard, it would be red too.

Most of the other reviewers mention that they had smoother softer hair after the dying it but I didn't feel that way. It's sightly coarser than usual. Then again, I do have super soft and straight hair to begin with.

Uhh, just in case you think I'm boasting, note that super soft = super limp. My hair has absolutely zero volume. My hairdressers ask me if I straighten my hair which I do not and it upsets me. If I wanted super straight hair (which I don't) the next day, all I do is I wash it, comb it and go sleep. I rather have wavy, volume hair. Hell, I don't care if I have Dolly Parton like hair! *sniff sniff*


Pictures taken near the window

NOTD



Saw this on YouTube and just had to try it. Wish I didn't. The frosting on the "cupcakes" looked a little retarded since JH's white acrylic paint has dried up and became lumpy. I made it even worst when I paint big fat cherries on them and hated it! Covered everything up with white and from lumpy became clumpy.

Never in my life have I had 5 different coloured nails so I found this refreshing. Wish I had a lighter yellow or mint colour nail colour tho. It would have looked better. *sigh* But will make do :D

OMG! It has been a while since I've said that :|.

I loooove your hair color! I am thinking of coloring my hair as well. I already have some lighter parts in my hair, but I'm thinking of doing something a tad more different. That is what I'm thinking now though. Not sure what color yet hehe :D

Your nails are so pretty. Such soft colors. My top coat so that my polish dries super fast has gone bad....so now I only put nail polish that I can't ruin *head desk* I'm so lazy! hehe

Love ya and hope you're well!!

Your hair colour is gorgeous! I wish I could pull off a red D:

And your nails are adorable, as always!

That's a very flattering color! I don't particularly like the Liese ones as it doesn't last as long and is more expensive than other boxed dyes. The bubble application is a novel idea though.
