NOTD: OPI Merry Midnight and a bitch


I'm redoing it cos I took WAY better photos this time :)

 Pretty flakies in bottle.

3 days wear.

Just a mini grumble now.

I have tried, 3 times to head to the post office this week. Loooooong queues (at least an hours' wait) each time. I lined up to get my package weighed and to buy envelopes/paper package thingies for my giveaway people. Line up, line up. Then when I get to the counter, I realise I left my wallet in the car.

Me: Oh no! I just realised I left my wallet in the car.
Person behind counter (PBC): ... (Silence)
Me: Could I pop out and get it? Serve the others first.
PBC: Next......
(After running down 3 flights of stairs and up again)
Me: I'm back, sorry about that. *huff huff*
PBC: Must line up again one.
Me: ?!?!?!! Please? I waited a long time. And these nice people know I'm not cutting.
PBC: Cannot. Must line up again.
(Note: Line seems longer than before)
Me: Please? Just this once?
Me: Arggggghhhhhh....

So I must venture out again. I'm not happy with the post office. Plus we were told not to post anything to Europe as it would most likely be delayed. Na-duh for why.

Thanks for the rant. Sometimes, people are just mean .>,<

Warning: Feet Ahead

My tootises just had a relaxing pedicure. Sorry for those who don't like feet but they are clean and polished, if I do say so myself.

I finally tried OPI's Absolutely Alice and I love it. Dense micro glitter. 2 coats. ^^
I have fat round toes that I don't really like.

But my dog does!
I was scratching his back and my mom took the picture. Now, that's a look of serenity. :)

NOTD: Brown and Blue

Hello ladies! I decked my nails out in one of my favourite colour combinations.
2 coats of each. No top coat.
The brown is the exact shade of a dark chocolate Dars piece. Rich and creamy and oh-so-melty-in-my mouth. *droooools*

Click for close ups of the blue shimmer. :) Please also note tip wear and I had this on for 3 days without a top coat! Not bad, not bad. But on day 4, a chunk fell off my 'brown' thumb.
Well it was time for a change anyway. ^^

NOTD: Pink Skinfood

Close up of this strawberry pink. Skinfood has gained my trust again. Smooth as butter, one coat.
I got a pearl toptop which has subtle shimmer. So, I added a coat of that on as well.
Top with flash, bottom without.
See the shimmer? ^^

NOTD: A Skinfood I don't like!

Wow... This was a MESS. Streaky, uncontrollable and just a plain bitch to use.

This was 2 painful coats.

So pretty in the bottle. A metallic blue.
LOOK AT THAT! *gasps in horror* A STREAKY HELL! Nooooo!
A close up of hell. This was the best nail.
With flash.

Argh. Hate, hate , hate.

By the way, I'm sorry I haven't posted much the last week. Been busy and sick. And late filing my income tax. >,<
Paperwork has piled up and it can no longer be procastinated on.

NOTD: Layering

I used 1 coat of Rainbow and then a coat of my earlier franken. But, I added a few drops of black to it.
Mirco glitter and hex glitter as well. But sparse!
Sorry I haven't been posting. Been busy at work and sick.

LAst look at the bottles!

Gatorade Nails

Sooooooo, I tried and I tried. But nothing I do makes the actual colour come out. It's the exact same shade as Gatorade! MAybe I should have done orange tips :P
Ignore dent and bubbling. I did 2 quick thin coats and did not wait between them. Therefore, bubbling. And yes, my phone rang and I answered. I never learn.

A Few Buys From The Den of Vice aka Sephora

The age old question. Do I need 9 different eyeliners in every colour possible from Urban Decay?

Answer: Yes. And I needed it yesterday.

And Mac brought in Liberty of London to Singapore! *jumps in joy*

So I got...

Too pretty to take out of the box.

But, here's something crazy.

OPI here is S$23. My Mac nailpolish was S$19.

Since when has Mac nailpolish been cheaper than freakin' OPI?!?!?!!

Is this true anywhere else in the world? I'm super curious.

*beep beep* Mini Giveaway Closed!

Hi all!

Thanks for joining the giveaway. I was overwhelmed by the response. ^^ I'm glad to see how everyone was dying to get in on the strange 'Singaporean' nail polish bandwagon.

On that note, no Singaporean (I lie. Maybe just 5), speaks like Bolo Santosi of Just Cause 2.

And... moving on.

I will choose the winners tomorrow! So keep those painted lovelies crossed!

Much love,
The Green Fairy
