SeoNyeoShiDae Taeyoen, My version of Queens of NailArt

Dear Polishers,

So... I was a bit obsessed with Korean Pop lately and after my last visit to soompi forum, I just found out that the SNSD girls really like having their nails done. Since they have such a great nailart, so. I'm checking about some information about where they done their nails and I found this "BUB Nail Saloon" which has awesome works!

After checking the owner's blog about her posting of SNSD nails, I'm quite impressed with the fact that Taeyeon, the SNSD Leader really got this style that I adore so much!

Really love to show you her nailarts which were done by BUB.

*The last 2 picture, right above this writing, I've done both of them. The pink purple reminds me of my Bieber-Perry Manicure and the ghastly red on was done for HALLOWEEN 2011! :)

And beside these works by BUB, my other favorite's are Seohyun's (left) and Yuri's (right) style

* I love how the little skeletors are rolling in Yuri's black nail polish...
** All of these pictures are taken from BUB's blog!

So what do you think? If you're in Korea, would you visit BUB saloon to get your nails' done like the Girls Generation girls?

Until then, Happy Polishing!

A-ENGLAND adores CAMELOT! (Swacthes)

Dear Polishers,

There's new brand in town.

Actually it's not that new... but since I never discuss it in my blog, I would say it's a new brand!

So... i found out about A-ENGLAND from fellow blogger but what makes me buy it because ms PAM from PolishPolice write on her blog that A-ENGLAND is giving us free worldwide shipping. When I heard about the promo. I realize I couldn't miss the chance. So, I check on their website right away and lookin into A-ENGLAND website. I read the promo and they told me to fill up some form. I was estatic! Until I realize when I fill the information, they didn't put INDONESIA in their country section.

I was like mortified for a sec. They said it's worldwide but they don't deliver to Indonesia?! Do they think we're the 3rd world?! (although maybe we are but I just won't admit it)

So, I put on a message to A-ENGLAND's owner ms Adina and said that is it possible if they delivered it to Indonesia. Back then, I didn't hope I'll get response and I'm just being pesimistice until I check on my blackberry and got a mail from A-ENGLAND!!

Yess, you're guessing right! It's ms Adina herself replying to my mail!
And she said...

Isn't she's the sweetest :)

So... After some mails and payment, HERE IT IS!!


From their Camelot collection, I choose Lady of the Lake, Tristam (both of them are said to be the jewels of the collection, but I choose LotL and Dika choose Tristam), Lancelot (which belong to my friend and I regret it so much that I didn't buy it) and Excalibur. I quickly snapped their bottles for fun and Ooohhh I love how I took these pictures of A-ENGLAND. They really look like something good! MEGA AWESOMENESS!

Clockwise: Lady of The Lake, Tristam, Lancelot, Excalibur

Now... let's see how they look on nails!


You can see the holo shines bright when it hit light. Not to mention under the sun! They are like diamonds in your nails... although these guys here aren't the one who catch my breathe.

Meet Excalibur and Lancelot... the real guys who get me breathless!

It was back then when I was in highschool, the first time ever I knew polish brand like Sally Hansen, OPI, etc. I remember I stunt over a silver polish that was applied on my little finger nails. The smoothness, the color, truthfully I've never seen anything like that before. Not even until now... when I was checking on PolishPolice blog. When I saw her swacth I was like... THIS IS IT!!! THIS IS THE COLOR I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR MY FRIGGIN ENTIRE HALF LIFE!!! It's like you put foil in your nails! Seriously! How cool is that?!

and not to mention Lancelot, who haunts me in every dream I can. Since I don't have the swatches, but I will buy it, I promise I'll review him when I had the chance...

Basically, A-ENGLAND polish probably the best police I've ever known so far. Price is great, formula is nicely applicable, colors are yummy, and the glossiness is almost reflective as a mirror (okay I'm exaggerating but seriously... they are super GLOSSY!!!!)

So what are you waiting for! Go to their website, log-in and order their polish as much as you can because their polish is totally worth every money you spend!

Until then, Happy Polishing!

It's HALLOWEEN and a lil's Ghost Just Flies in My Nail!

Dear Polishers,

I'm sorry if it took me many months to come back and updated my blog... It's just when you see things. You get inspired and motivated easily. Then in a blink of an eye... you just get bored and drown in your own job. *sigh*

But lets not be mellow and wasting time, since it's halloween (one of my favorite holiday) I love to show mani I did...

I was checkin website when I found this news about how SEONYEOSHIDAE gals love nailart. There's lot of picture but one really catch my eyes. It's Taeyeon's do for her nails which is absolutely cute!!

I mean seriously... that little ghost flying in the black night?! CASPER anyone!!
*If you want to read the whole article, you can click this link.

I just love the manis so much that I need to do it by myself. So I grab my butter london "come to bed red", etude red glitter, Tony Moly black, and my etude nailartpen (My 24th birthday gift from Shan2) and after some work done... here it is!

Okay, probably it's not as good as Taeyeon's mani, But still I love how I manage to draw something from that nailartpen, and I even done it with my left hand. SERIOUSLY, I'm drawing my right index finger with my left hand! HOW COOL IS THAT!

So, what's your mani for halloween. Care for some zombie treatment, blood, fangs?

Until then, Happy Polishing!

Royalty in Vegas: When The Tudors, Gaga, Nude and Vegas Collide!

Dear Polishers,

So a brief introduction, there's this show called the Tudors, which I extremely like (because of Jonathan Rhyes Myers and Henry Cavill) back then.

And If you know me well, I love collectiong merchandise and limited edition stuff. It was quite a time when one day, I'm checking Ji Baek's web and found out that she has made a collection based on The Tudors family!
Clockwise: They are Catherine A, Catherine H, Jane, and Anne

I was like HOLY CRAP! I must have one of these polishes and thanks to TRIBECA, they've made my dream come true by letting me order some of the polish for me. (Too bad due to lack of money, I couldn't buy Catherin A for completing the collection.)

Although, I'm a bit annoyed for the fact there's 2 similar name for the polish, I personally prefer she use their last name instead of their name. Aragon, Boleyn, Seymour, and Howard... although they don't sound feminine at all) but beside that I think JiBaek did a great job for choosing the right color which characterized the polish. I think the color is very suprising but when you see it, it fits well with the character.

Anyway, I give you some cool swatches by miss Temptalia and the characters of Henry's Wives!

First is Catherine Aragon
The first wife of Henry... I couldn't find any picture of her with Henry, so... she still stand there alone. Poor Catherine. For the color, JiBaek choose nurturing, motherly, noble yet strong color.

Second is Anne Boleyn
The seductress 2nd wife of Henry, first I though her color would be a hot tone like maroon, brownish, wine, and I'm a bit surprised to see JiBaek choose this dark green olive color. But then again I can relate how this wild dark polish seduce you slowly but sure and I guess JiBaek try to interpret her fierceness.

The third one is Jane Seymour
Rescue Beauty Lounge TudorsRescue Beauty Lounge Tudors
Rumour said that She's the one that Henry trully love because she gave him a son. (Which is a ridiculous idea nowadays) and she's the opposite of Anne. She's very feminine and sweet, mild I can say. Very calm color like her character.

And the last one is Catherine Howard
Rescue Beauty Lounge TudorsRescue Beauty Lounge Tudors
The last and youngest of all... I think JiBaek tries to make her color look edgy and popular at the same time. The denim color makes sense... I feel that these kind of color have a chance to be the it color. I can feel the youthful in it.

So back on topic, After waiting for month, My package had arrived and as usual, I'm so excited with it although I'm in some dilemma because there will be 3 colors that I need to wear and truthfully some of these color didn't really get along well and really... how can u choose for these gorgeous colors?! Luckily... only two of them arrive (Anne was left in Dika's house), which made my job a bit easier for choosing what color to use!

and here they are... the two wives of Henry Tudor

From Left to Right: Catherin H and Jane

At first, I just can't wait trying my RBL Catherine H, It's a very gorgeous! The color look in the bottle! I mean blue with pink purple blue micro glitter, that's just scream "queen bee"! Catherine was definitely my first choice back then. I was about to use it when I stop and start digging to Jane, the other polish and thank God I did because I was astound! (Truthfully, I buy Jane because I need to fulfill some order quota)

I can't believe that I would ignore beautiful Catherin for some nude greyish polish that I would never like! So, I did my manicure rite away while adoring the cream grey!

Still can't believe that I'm in love with this color! (The only disappointment of Jane is that there should be this gold micro glitter in the polish but they're gone as soon as you're applying the polish to your nail). I would say it was a sophisticated color and it goes great with my skin tone! OH ADORE THIS POLISH SO MUCH!!

I realize that this color is almost similar like Deborah Lippmann Waking Up in Vegas.

Can't stand on Cam Whoring in Gaga Pose!

Should I buy the whole collection? I feel a bit guilty for leaving Catherine behind. (It's like she always left behind even when she's alive) I'm thinking and in dilemma...

Until then, Happy Polishing!

Dear polishers!!

As usual, time past by so fast until we realize it's almost half of 2011 year!! So... I would like to talk about the autumn look that could collide together! Let me introduce the revamp style of NUDING YOUR NAILS!!!!

Check this out!!

You can also combine the nude look with the new famous MOON MANICURE!!

I made a great list of what polish that could do the look in ASIAN skin tone and for nude color I only trust this two brands because they could always manage to pull a great color when it comes to neutral. While both brand could give us a very feminine, womanized look, there's this different feel of the two brands.

OPI give us an elegant, classic, conventional look

From Left to Right: OPI Passion, OPI Dulche De Leche, OPI Barefoot in Barcelona, OPI Tickle My France-y (*thanks to Lucysstash, JadeIsabelle, ShoptalkDmagazine, thelacquerlog)

While my favorite brand Essie gives us a sophisticated, bold, independent look!

From Left to Right: Essie Topless and Barefoot, Essie Jazz, Essie Demure Vixen, Essie Eternal Optimist (*thanks to eBlog, lipglossiping, Somdlo, thenailphile,)

You could go Mannequin with the exact color like your skin tone, Go nude with one tone up or down than your skin tone, or.... you can go edgy with the greyish nude color! It's your style, it's your autumn, it's your choice!!

Until then, Happy Polishing!
