How to Use Flower Nail Art Water Decals

Hello Dazzlers,
today I want to introduce you to one of goodies I received from Born Pretty Store

It's Nail Art Water Decals (size 65*55mm)
If you like nail art, but your free-hand technique kinda sucks (like I do)
This kinds of decals are so handy <3 <3


1st Preparing tools 
I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as base coat 
Revlon Parfumerie Powder Puff as base color 
Seche Vite as top coat 
then scissor, tweezer, small glass of water and towel

2nd Don't forget the transparent plastic on top of decals

3rd. Cut the decals as you desired 

4th. Put the piece in the water let it soak for a few second

5th. Took out the decal with tweezer and put it on towel 
to absorb the excess water, when you done 
the decal will come off (the white paper on the back would come off)

6th. Placed the decal on your nails and seal it with top coat 
(top coat is a must to protect the decal)
Easy right??? 

So this my result 

What I like about this decal is giving you 
flexibility to cut the design and place it on your nails 
plus it's easy to use. 
and also easy to remove too (just using polish remover 
like you remove usual nail polish)

What do you think?

RIMMEL Salon Pro #337 PURPLE RAIN Swatch & Review

Happy Eid Mubarak for my Moslems friends.
Today I want to show you swatch of RIMMEL Salon Pro #337 Purple Rain

Notice something special??
Yeap this nail polish with avec LYCRA 

So what is lycra?
LYCRA is a man-made elastane fiber.
It has unique stretch and recovery properties 
(Got it from here )

So what it has to do with nail polish?
by adding lycra in it, it make the polish 
more flexible and stretchable.
The formulation would cover base coat, 
top coat, and would have shinning finish as gel polish
and the best thing is it's long wear!!!
Heard it can last for 10 DAYS.....


DAY 1 
337 is jelly based purple polish 
2 coat without top coat 
It really has a really shinny finished 

My first impression:
The Formula is a bit hard to work with, I seem can't get it even on 
1st coat so I need 2 coat for this, but as you can see 
on my index finger, it still a bit uneven. 

The drying time also take a bit longer than 
OPI, Etude House, Revlon

The brush
Large round brush 

 DAY 2

It still has a bit of shine on it, no chipping. 
but the thing that make me frustrated was 
There are lots of scratch on top of it

I can't stand it so I took it off on day 4 
'till day 4 it's still good no chipping. 

I feel I can give this polish a second chance 
or I might get another color just to compare 
(I had my eye on the blue one- forget the name, but it was sold out)

Bought this at WATSONS Taiwan 
 (but not every store has it)

Have you ever use this nail polish?
What do you think?

Last Midnight the storm hit Taiwan, so today we have Typhoon holiday (hmm I can't actually say it's holiday) well my point is since the wind and rain so strong the government decided to call of all of the schools and works for a day. 
So my daughter and husband are at home today. My daughter is watching her favorite movie FROZEN for N times (she loves it very much), and I made this nails ....... (I think this too early to make winter nails, but my daughter keeps on watching and singing the FROZEN so it stuck on my mind :P )

What I used:
1. Face it Gradation nail kit as base 
2. and stamping plate QA86, you can get it here

This Plate I also received from Born Pretty Store. Ain't this beautiful???

VDL Festival Nail Duo 03. Loubu Nude Swatch

I think I'm obsessed with cosmetics -pen look alike these days.... After Revlon Moon Candy nail polish, then Skinfood lip lacquer and nowwww......

Festival Nail Duo 
03. Loubu Nude 

I'm not really familiar with this brand to be honest. 
All I know is that VDL is Korean cosmetics brand 
and I saw Pony use this brand for her video tutorial 
and when I browsing around I found shop who carry 
this brand nail polish for 199 NT (on sale price)

The Red one is Ruby Platform - is Red jelly based color with 
little red glitter in it 

The 2nd one is Nude Crink- is kind a holo gold polish with silver
shimmer, it's so pretty when it hit the sunlight 

OMG Nude Crinkkk so prettyyyy 

Almost the same with Revlon Moon Candy 
VDL is taller but only 4.9ml
while Revlon is 7.68 ml

I like both of them 
Unfortunately VDL might be harder to get

Skinfood Milky Rose Vita Color Lip Lacquer PK02 Review and Swatch

This Product is from Skinfood 
Milky Rose Vita Color Lip Lacquer 
This Collection from their 2014 Spring Collection 

Too bad the number of this lipstick is only at the cap seal 
The packaging really look like a pen 
I think it's the same material too :p
and the body part with words are from a sticker 

The Brush applicator 
I love the BRUSH
It spread the lipstick and make it smooth perfectly

There is a "click" button? (don't know what it call)
I mean you have to click it to make the product out


On my lips I just put one coat then spread it with the brush
PK02 is a baby pink with blue undertone 

On the tube it stated 
that this product is
Lipstick Mousse and Tint 
Long Lasting 
Soft mousse 

I think they call it lipstick mousse is 
because it has matte finish but it's so moisture 
and it didn't make my lips crack 

and what surprise me is 
the long lasting effect <3 
It last quite a while even after a meal 

My first impression about this lip lacquer is 
it's too watery 
but the brush really do the job to make it smooth 
Love it so much 

The second is the scent 
It has a scent of citrus but not too strong 

Overall, I really love this lippie 

Bought this at Skinfood Counter at Ximending Taipei 
for 480NT

Thank you for reading 
C ya on the next post <3

Innisfree Eco Nail Color Pro #04 Swatch

Just a short post <3

Innisfree Eco Nail Color Pro No 04
(This taken outdoor- natural sunlight) 


It's a red nail polish, but what I love from this color 
is It's not a bright red, there's hint of mauve color in it
that make this red tamer <3

Very pigmented, I can get an opaque finish with one coat 
My habit... all of the pics are 2 coats no top coat. 

Bonus Pic 
It's been so long since I played with my Konad
so today I decided to play with it <3

I'm using Konad plate M73 

What do you think?
