Belated birthday pressie 2012; Vintage Rose nails, Lakme eyeliner

My camera is dying on me. Or atleast the battery is. Damn. I'm going for another trip soon so money is going to be tight. Sheesh!

My belated birthday present. Much love to Sir Terrible Memory.

Many thanks to Melissa and Nick for having to lug it all the way back for me from Paris. 


Ooooo, yummy yummy chocolate from Paris. They make fabulous chocolates there, so delish! I'm surprised Pinky Doodle Doo's friend, Mel is observant enough to know I love chocolates and my sister nougats. Thankies!


Wanted to do the Little Twin Star nail art I saw on Youtube, lug all my things to Sir Terrible Memory's house only to realize I didn't own any flesh coloured nail polish. NOTD abandoned. Did the vintage rose as last resort.

I used:

The Face Shop GR501
Games Workshop Emperor's Children (Darker Pink) 
Games Workshop Changeling Pink (Light Pink)
Games Workshop Goblin Green + White (leaves)

Was browsing through the shops in Little India when I spotted this. My initial thought was this was a nail colour but there was only black colour. What kind of nail polish line has only black? On closer look it turned out to be eyeliner.

9ml - I'll be using it for years and years to come...

Cost me a total of RM 9.50 ( I jokingly ask the shop keeper for discount and without a pause he told me RM 9.50 down from RM 9.90) So I happily paid and left.

The shorter brush gives me better control but even then my lines came out a little wonky.

Pros: It's very black, cheap, comes off easily with oil base make up removers.

Cons: No ingredients listed, stings bloody hell if you get it in your eyes, takes a very long time to dry.Will smear badly if you rub your eyes.

Note the takes a long time to dry cause it really does. So far, I only use it on weekends when I have plenty of time to let it dry. Days I don't have to rush for work or rush off somewhere. So far so good.

 Knowing how much I loved nail polish, my colleague who left the company recently gave me her nail polish from Skin Food as a present.

I have never bought any nail polish from Skin Food since I think they are a little pricy but the quality turned out pretty nice. In fact, much nicer than TFS. Application was smooth and easy and this colour thankfully wasn't streaky or anything.

Will consider this brand when buying nail colours in the future.

Happy belated birthday, Hevn! :D~~
The roses on your nails are gorgeous. I wish I had that kind of precision. I need a ton more practice until I get to half of your level wahaha.
The shopkeeper gave you a discount just like that?! I wish that happens more often. XD
I didn't even know that Skin Food had a nail polish line! The color is gorgeous!

Happy Belated Birthday!

About the corset belts, try wearing a form fitting top inside the skirt or pants so the top does not balloon out over your rear. And please stop, your gorgeous xoxo
