Top/Base Coats - Nubar - Diamont Top Coat

Apr/19/2009

So at my first try, I applied it on wet polish, which is usual for quick dry TC. It was thick, left some bald spots and picked up the polish' color. What a disappointment, since I heard such raves from the Nail Board. After being forgotten for a while, last nite I decided to give it a last try. This time I left the polish to completely dry before applying, lo and behold it worked amazingly! …Read more

This is really pale lilac color, even paler than Nubar's Lavender. The application is as great as other Nails Inc's colors, not streaky at all, which is a surprise considering all pale colors that I own are almost always very streaky. This color is VHTF, so get it if you happen to cross it!

This will be my HG color for as long as I live! Seriously, this is the color that I've been looking for and is the color that defines my personality (am I sounding kookoo?) It's an indigo/blurple/true violet in different lighting... Creme with super glossy finish. It's a little thick at first, but a drop of thiner makes it perfect. The size is tad small (10ml instead of 15ml), but …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Creative Nail Design - Heat Dry Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2009

I've been looking for a top coat that's super glossy, thin yet hard and this seems to have all of the above. It's thin so you can apply it liberally and don't have to worry about timing. Then you stick your fingers under any household lamp that has 60watts bulb for 3 minutes. Voila, it dries to a hard and super glossy finish! The gloss and scratch-ressistant beats my beloved …Read more

Treatments - Poshe - AHA Cuticle Care

I dunno why I have miss this cream all along... I have dry, thick & raggedy cuticles that grow so fast. I tried not to cut them every week since I don't do a very good job at it. To make it short, I HATE how they look most of the time. I use Neutrogena hand cream which is heaven to my hands, but it seems not enough for my cuticles. Solar Oil is too messy for every day use, so I decided …Read more

Lipstick - shu uemura - Rouge Unlimited (All shades)

For ladies who have sensitive lips, you gotta try this line of lippies!!! My lips are very prone to dryness and sensitive, hence why I need my Neutrogena lipbalm applied obsessively. As far as lipsticks, I could only wear Armani and Vincent Longo lipsticks, until now... The line is divided into Reds, Pinks, Beiges/Browns and Corals/Oranges. The colors in Shu lipsticks are what I consider basic …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Eye shadows

MUFE Eye Shadows are hands down my fave eye shadows, period!!! They're silky smooth, very highly pigmented, blends like a dream & no creasing on my oily lids!!! The mattes are so pigmented, unlike any other brand I've tried (MAC, Stila, Nars). The Pearls & Iridescents are not as pigmented as the Mattes, but the shimmers are so soft, they look satiny instead of shimmery, which I …Read more

This dark purple color is part of the Imperial Anarchy collection. With that kind of name, the color itself is kind of disappointment. Very dark purple, a step lighter than OPI LPAM and it's got soft shimmer that's barely noticeable. I've never been a fan of CND formula since it takes foreeeever to dry. This one is no different and the color is just blah, nothing special. Better …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Tempest

Sep/10/2007

I adore this color!!! It's cornflower blue with lilac duochrome, so depending on the lighting you'll get either color. Yes, it is a bit thin and streaky on first coat, but I don't mind applying 3 coats since they dry pretty quickly. Can't complain about the quality either, especially compared to Creative Nail's Jiggy, which is identical in color. Definitely reaching for …Read more

This shade reminds of hot chocolate! It's a cool medium brown shade, I used 3 coats to get that opaque color (it's a tad sheer). Nothing extraordinary, probably won't purchase it again. But with the quality of China Glaze polish and $2.50 price, it's not bad at all.
